The Sweet Loot of Destiny


It’s not quite going to the shoot-and-loot extremes of the Borderlands games, but Destiny does appear to have a pretty sweet loot system to complement its shared-world shooter MMO-style gameplay, as seen in this new developer diary from Bungie. Completing missions and challenges — The Devil’s Lair Strike scenario for example — will come with rewards of new weapons and armor, including extra special gear for end-game content like raids. The game will also feature a private loot stream, meaning even basic drops like ammo will be private to each player rather than multiple players fighting over shared loot.
