While Destiny 2 doesn’t actively limit your XP progress anymore, the game now requires you to get twice as much XP. Instead of the 80,000 experience you needed under the previous system, you now need 160,000. The major difference is that you can now gain that experience around 6% faster, but it still takes twice as much for the same reward. Once fans started compmlaining about the new system, Bungie confirmed that the “correct value” for a new level is 160,000 XP. The Destiny 2 team will also be sharing details of next month’s update at some point next week, and fans can only hope that the new XP controversy will be among the topics covered.
Destiny 2 previously found Bungie in the middle of a controversy last month when they awarded world first for Leviathan’s prestige mode to a team that glitched their way to victory simply because it wasn’t the glitch they were watching for. Had EA not dominated headlines for the past few weeks with their shady practices in Star Wars: Battlefront II, Bungie may not be facing the level of resistance. Even without EA helping fuel the anger consumers feel toward such practices, the XP system change would have certainly still garnered some attention.
