It has been almost 1,000 days since Destiny 2 received its last Crucible map and many fans are anticipating the addition of Disjunction to the PvP rotation. As part of Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted, Disjunction is ending the long drought and with the map comes the potential for unique sightlines, unexpected ambushes, and perfectly timed Super Abilities.
Disjunction joins Rift in the latest Crucible map changes, and it offers a variety of ranges from short to long for Destiny 2 Guardians of all types across the largest Crucible map to date. The Crucible map is set in the swampy Pyramid area of Savathun’s Throne World, and it has a three-lane structure with multiple crossover sections in between for Guardians to dip in to dodge incoming enemies. Destiny 2 players are now able to compete in 6v6, 3v3, and Free-for-all match types in Disjunction with Season of the Haunted after the long wait which may end up being the lengthiest wait for a Crucible map.
Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted began today, running until August 23, and like previous seasons, it brings with it tons of content in addition to the expected balancing, Season Pass, and bug fixes. On top of the new PvP offerings, Season of the Haunted includes revamps to Solar abilities via Solar 3.0, a scalable activity known as Nightmare Containment, Leviathan Patrol zone, and more. With Destiny 2: Witch Queen being among the most successful releases of the year, many players have already begun delving into what the Season of the Haunted has to offer.
Celebrating the new Destiny 2 Crucible map on Twitter, Senior Community Manager at Bungie Dylan Gafner shared a GIF of a movie scene in which a character says “reset the clock!” alongside a Tweet saying, “it has been 0 days since Bungie released a new Crucible map.” This caused some backlash with the Destiny 2 community as some accused Bungie of being toxic or inviting toxicity, but Gafner has clarified that his initial Tweet was “from a place of excitement.” Questioning why anyone assumed malicious intent based on his initial Tweet, Gafner stated that Destiny 2 playtesters had a good time with the Season of the Haunted map and that it’s been a while since the last Crucible map was added.
Destiny 2 Crucible fans have been waiting for a new PvP map since October 2019 and many of them have voiced their displeasure with Bungie in the multi-year wait, including in the response to Dylan Gafner’s Tweet. A lot of the Destiny 2 players expressing their disappointment in the lengthy wait for Disjunction haven’t suggested that the new map is lacking, inferring that they may not dislike Disjunction at all. Although so many Destiny 2 fans have conveyed anger about Gafner’s celebratory tweet, it’s currently unclear how long of a wait there will be for the next addition to Destiny 2‘s Crucible rotation, but the reaction may not instill confidence.
Destiny 2 is available now for Google Stadia, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
