Bungie makes big changes to Destiny 2: Lightfall’s PvE
It’s no secret that the Guardians in Destiny 2 have grown exponentially strong since the beginning of the content that came with the Witch Queen DLC but that will change with Lightfall.
With the current armor system, upgrades to the Light subclass, and more, the Guardians are the strongest they’ve ever been in franchise history.
With that in mind, Bungie is looking to bring some challenge back to the game when the Lightfall DLC subsequently nerfs all PvE activities with the modifier. “contest“.
Essentially, Bungie will forcefully lower the power levels in activities so that the enemies we face are always a threat to us, even if we are initially at a higher power level than the activity.
This is a brilliant change, as it will always ensure that we face some kind of challenge from the enemies we encounter, even though we’ve gotten so powerful in the last year.
PvE updates arriving in Lightfall:
💠 Adept difficulty and match game removed
💠 Level adjustments per difficulty
💠 Nightfall weekly challenge changes
💠 Scoring added to Vanguard Ops playlist
💠 Master Raids and Dungeons updates

A prime example of this change will be Master Raids, where you would typically need to be in the designated Power to play. When Lightfall arrives, even if you match the power level of Master Raid, the game will automatically set your power level to 20 below what it is, ensuring that the enemies you face always hit harder and are more durable in the process.
