Tfue explains what Destiny 2 needs to change to be “good again”

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has taken a swipe at his very first video gaming love, dubbing Destiny 2 “cringe” and “simple,” and suggesting there are a few key elements Bungie need to look at fixing before it can be “good again.”

Before Fortnite and before his explosion in popularity on Twitch, Tfue was a Guardian, and a damn good one at that ⁠— the young star set hefty records in the competitive Trials of Osiris playlist during the early days of the title.

His love for Bungie’s planet-hopping looter-shooter eventually waned, however, and in 2016 he announced he had “officially retired” from Destiny. That was, until the devs announced its top PvP mode, Trials, was returning.

Destiny’s top-tier competitive mode, Trials of Osiris, is returning after being benched for years.

Tenney jumped back in his Destiny spaceship during his March 9 stream, and soon set about tearing the game. From map design, to “helping noob players” and the “cringe” gunplay in the Crucible, Tfue didn’t hold back in his rant.

“It’s just easy to outgun people in this game… deadass. People don’t have to know how to aim in the game to be good,” he said after his third consecutive death in a Rumble match. “Shotgun players are so cringe too.”

The “easy aiming” the Destiny franchise had developed over the past years had also given rise to a number of unskilled players who were “still able to go well,” Tfue added. “These kids play every day, and I’m still sh*tting on these bots.”

Considering Tfue cut his teeth in the franchise on Destiny 1, which was released all the way back in 2014, he did admit the game may have changed a lot since he was gone. That wasn’t an excuse to make it “simple” though, he said.

“Destiny 1 was lit. Destiny 2 now is so simple… it’s f**king dogsh*t,” he said.

If Bungie really wants their franchise to grow he said, they have to look at their gunplay, and not cater to casual players. They also need to “add more big maps,” and get rid of “so many corridors,” the Twitch star added.

“What they need is some really open, long-ranged maps. That way people can’t just slide around corners and blow you away with a shotgun,” he said. “The spawns are so bad too, whoever designed the maps are obviously stupid.”

While Tfue didn’t hold back in his scathing of his once-loved franchise, he did admit there were a few things Bungie had done “much better” than his new flame, Fortnite. In particular, he brought up the hot topic of aim assist.

“This game is better than Fortnite [in that regard] because there’s aim involved,” he explained. “The one thing I do like about this game is that controller players only have aim assist, so it’s okay if there’s a few of them in your lobby.”

Considering the Twitch star has had a lot of problems with Fortnite recently ⁠— he unloaded on skill-based matchmaking earlier this week, and suggested Chapter 2 had ruined the game for him ⁠— maybe he’s on the lookout for a new game.

Right now, it may not be Destiny, considering his near-hour long deluge of complaints about the title in his first stream back. If Bungie were paying attention though, maybe the devs can make the suggested tweaks.

Between that, and if the Trials of Osiris launch is as popular as Destiny fans believe it might be, maybe, just maybe, the franchise’s prodigal son could return full-time. Who knows with Tfue though ⁠— even Warzone might tempt him now.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is jam-packed with awesome content right out of the gate, but everyone gets stuck somewhere, and the Technocrat Empire Hunt has proven to be a difficult hurdle to climb. Here’s how to finish it once and for all.

The Technocrat Empire Hunt in Destiny 2: Beyond Light pits players against Praksis, the Technocrat. He is a Fallen from the House of Salvation and trusted lieutenant for Eramis, Kell of Darkness.

Praksis, The Technocrat will do anything to support Eramis and his malicious cause, which puts him on a collision course with Destiny 2: Beyond Light players. It all comes together in the Technocrat Empire Hunt, where players have a chance to eliminate him once and for all.

However, it’s easier said than done. He is extremely powerful, and before you reach him, you’ll need to take on some lesser enemies and finish a series of tasks. 

Here’s everything players will need to know, including a step-by-step guide, some tips for the fight, and what you’ll get once you manage to beat him.

How To Complete The Technocrat Empire Hunt

  • First, make sure you have a power level of at least 1120.
  • Then, locate and enter Bray Exoscience.
  • In typical Destiny 2 fashion, you’ll have to work your way through waves of enemies and take on Fallen Brigs.
  • Next, you’ll need to destroy some shield generators, which will help weaken Praksis, The Technocrat ahead of the final showdown.
  • From there, you’ll have nothing left to do but come face to face with Praksis, The Technocrat and take him down.

Tips To Make The Fight Easier

Praksis, The Technocrat is no slouch. He’s even harder than Phylaks, The Warrior, which many players struggled with.

Luckily, there are some tips you can follow to make it easier.

  • Start moving around the tower the moment the fight begins, and don’t stop until he is toast.
  • Praksis, The Technocrat is a skilled Stasis wilder. He has a series of abilities that deal devastating amounts of damage, especially against players with lower skill levels.
  • He also has a shield, and when he uses it, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the red generators floating in the air and destroy them.
  • When in doubt, don’t forget to use the empowering pool at the entrance to the arena. It will give you rechargeable Stasis abilities that are extremely useful throughout the fight.

Once you’ve managed to beat him, you can return to the Europa camp.
