The Witch Queen is Destiny 2 at its best

Fans are in for a treat with Bungie’s latest expansion

By THE OMEN NEWSROOM TEAM | April 27, 2022

Destiny 2 is in its fifth year now, and developer Bungie has already lined up a ton of content for the next few years. Kicking things off in 2022 is The Witch Queen, perhaps the best expansion this franchise has seen since Destiny’s The Taken King in 2015. It’s got brand new story-driven content to play through as well as a host of streamlined end-game content, so if you’ve never played Destiny 2 before, or are a returning player, this is without a doubt the best time to jump back in.

Unlike some of Destiny 2’s older expansions, The Witch Queen ships with a fairly lengthy campaign, and this brings with it a brand new area called the Throne World to explore. The Witch Queen’s campaign can be played cooperatively by three players in both Normal and Legendary mode. If you’re new to the franchise, The Witch Queen’s plot will seem overwhelming, so we definitely recommend going through some sort of a recap on YouTube first. We would also recommend playing through the campaign first on Normal – after which you can tackle Legendary mode, which – as the name suggests – is a lot tougher, but offers better rewards.

But the campaign is only the tip of the iceberg in The Witch Queen. The real meat and bones lies in the myriad of end-game content that has now been streamlined tremendously. From the PvE perspective, you have your Weekly Strikes, Gambit matches as well as the new seasonal modes to partake in. Strikes are quick cooperative missions that grant players rewards, with better loot being rewarded for Nightfall Strikes. Gambit is Destiny 2’s PvPvE mode where you face off against the AI as well as other human players. Over and above these modes, you have some older seasonal content from Bungie’s 30th anniversary celebrations, as well as the hardest content this game has to offer in form of Raids. Like most MMOs, Raids in Destiny 2 are some of the most challenging encounters, mixing everything from puzzle-solving to platforming to intense combat in a long gauntlet that will test even the best Destiny 2 players. 

If PvP is your thing, you can always test your skill in the Crucible, or wait for weekly events like Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris. Iron Banner is a seasonal multiplayer mode where a player’s Light Level (overall level) matters, so someone with a higher Light Level automatically has an advantage. Trials of Osiris is this game’s version of Ranked matches –the competition is fierce and losing matches can actually get you de-ranked.

No matter what kind of modes you enjoy playing, The Witch Queen has something for everyone. Reworking the Void class has made Destiny 2’s combat the most fun it’s been in years and when you add in a huge assortment of modes, weapons and gears into the mix, you have a solid looter shooter that’s well worth the time investment.

The Witch Queen expansion is available on Steam for Rs 899, but you’ll need the Destiny 2 base game to play it, which is available for free.
