Destiny 2 LFG System Will Let You Rank Other Players

Thanks to the various leaks that came days before, today’s Destiny 2 showcase didn’t have as much surprise as Bungie had hoped, but one thing that was surprising was a preview of the new Looking for Group (LFG) system that will arrive sometime after the Lightfall expansion in 2023.

It has been difficult to get Guardians to group together for some of Destiny 2’s most difficult challenges. Those that want to dive into raids or Grandmaster Nightfalls often resort to Discord, an entirely separate program, in order to find like-minded players. Unfortunately, this often means playing with someone who might not have the right gear, be high enough level, or just lack the fundamental skills necessary to complete these difficult challenges.

By letting players first see groups looking for more recruits for raids and other activities, the new LFG system hopes to solve all that. On top of that, the commendation system will let Guardians rank other players based on their gameplay ability, leadership, and whether or not they were fun to play with.

In addition to the new LFG system, Bungie is also tackling Destiny 2’s loadout problem. As of now, the best possible way of organizing your loot and creating equipment loadouts is Destiny Item Manager, a completely separate app built and maintained by Destiny 2 fans. The new loadout system will let players save loadouts in-game and will even let them manage what mods they place on their guns and armor, too.

Guardian Ranks are another new system coming after Lightfall. The Guardian Ranks will be visible to other players to let them know how much of Destiny 2 they have mastered. A Rank 11 Guardian will be a player that’s touched everything the game has to offer, while a lowly Rank 2-3 might have limited their engagement to just a few of Destiny 2’s varied systems.

There is no specific timeframe for when these new systems will be implemented, but you can expect them after Lightfall arrives next February. Today marks the launch of Season of Plunder where Destiny 2 puts on its best captain’s hat for a pirate adventure.
