Bungie Addresses Destiny 2 Player Feedback On "Celerity" Perk As Banshee-44 Gets A Break

Since introducing Trials of Osiris to Destiny 2, Bungie has received plenty of player feedback regarding the origin-specific Perk for trial weapons known as Celerity. The perk kicks in when things aren't going so well and provides players with additional aim assist, handling, and reload stats, as well as reducing recoil and spread.

As it turns out, players aren't exactly content with the perk, partially because the requirement for it to kick in is that things are going wrong. However, players otherwise enjoy the perk and offered suggestions on how to improve it. This included tying it, and the related perk Bottomless Grief, to Trials and Nightfall weapons, or to only have Adept versions.

The devs think the idea is cool, but there are very specific problems with doing it, mostly involving perk stacking or power creep. Instead, they've decided to make other changes to Trials and Nightfall weapons (that only affect new drops). In seasons 14, both weapons will feature these changes:

  • Nightfall weapons:
      • Bottomless Grief grants a permanently active +30 to Magazine.
      • Bottomless Grief is now a fixed alternate perk in the left column on Adept drops of Nightfall weapons (i.e. you can switch between that and the randomly rolled perk in the inspection screen).
  • Trials weapons:
      • Celerity grants a permanently active +20 to both Reload and Handling.
      • Celerity is now a fixed alternate perk in the right column on Adept drops of Trials weapons (i.e. you can switch between that and the randomly rolled perk in the inspection screen).

In additional news, Bungie has also made changes to gear acquisition. With the Season 14 update, Ada-1 will be the vendor to go to when you're looking for armor-focused items and upgrades. This includes daily random armor mods from the general armor slot groups. Since Ada-1 is now in control of these items, Banshee-44 will no longer sell them, although he will retain the rest of his inventory.
