Destiny 2 update 2.1.4 – Supers and subclasses

Sandbox

Super Tuning

Hunter: Gunslinger

    • Explosion damage increased from 150 to 250

    • Our goal for AoE supers of this type is that they incur self-damage when activated too close to a target. We consider Blade Barrage not causing self-damage a bug, which we are now addressing.
    • In other words, Hunters will know how Warlocks feel when they throw a Nova Bomb into a wall.
    • Fixed an issue in which Blade Barrage projectiles could track allies

Hunter: Nightstalker

With the brand new DLC, Operation Grand Heist, not only are there a number of changes implemented, but the arrival of loot boxes is also of note.

Loot Boxes, now called Cases, comes with the arrival of the content update, and Treyarch has outlined what cases are all about.

The Black Market evolves with the return of Blackjack, the mercenary trader specializing in contraband gear. Blackjack brings a ton of awesome new gear along with three new additions to the Black Market –Cases, My Deals, and Inventory.

Here are some highlights from the new content coming to the newly revamped Black Market throughout Operation Grand Heist:

  • 100 Tiers: Preview the entire Contraband stream of Operation Grand Heist from Tiers 1-100 on day one, including all-new weapons, Specialist outfits, a new Blackout character, and more.
  • New Specialist: Outrider is available at Tier 1 of Operation Grand Heist, which unlocks her for use in Multiplayer and Blackout.
  • New Blackout Characters: Keep an eye out for iconic new Blackout Characters, including Misty from the Black Ops II Zombies crew,and Brutus, the undead warden from “Blood of the Dead”.
  • New Contraband Weapons: Expand your loadout by earning the Switchblade X9 SMG, Rampage full-auto shotgun, and the Cha-Ching! money bag melee weapon during Operation Grand Heist. More weaponry will also become available as the Operation continues through April 2019.
  • New Signature Weapons: New Signature Weapons will now be available in Blackjack’s Reserves, and will provide a bonus +25% XP boost per kill while using the Signature (“MKII”) version of any gun.
  • New Reactive Camos: Deck out some of your favorite weapons, including the Maddox RFB and VAPR-XKG, with weapon-specific Reactive Camos that change based on your actions during a match. You’ll also be able to equip these on guns that have the Gold Mastery Camo unlocked.
  • New Outfits: New Epic Outfits for multiple Specialists let you choose a side: cops or robbers? Some Outfits are available from day 1 in the Contraband stream, and others will release throughout the Operation in the Black Market.
  • New Blackout Jump Packs: All-new Jump Packs hold a matching wingsuit, parachute, and contrail effect to customize your look and let you hot drop in style.

Items from Reserves in past Operations will be available in Blackjack’s Reserves, including the Mozu Replicant and SG12 Boombox Mastercrafts. Additionally, Cases containing Blackjack Reserves can be earned by playing Multiplayer or Blackout, or they can be acquired in the Black Market.

Players get more access to more content with Operation Grand Heist, with an even larger selection of Reserves to earn during this Operation. Blackjack’s Shop has also been streamlined, combining Special Orders and Item Shop into one location in addition to personalized offers for every player in the new My Deals section.
