Bungie Will Fix Destiny 2 PC's Titan Skating Glitch Next Month

Bungie Will Fix Destiny 2 PC's Titan Skating Glitch Next Month

Ever since Destiny 2 on PC back in late 2017, players have been able to do something called "Titan Skating" - essentially being able to move much faster than intended by using the Catapult Lift jump ability, mashing of the space bar (or using keyboard macros). Using the Lion Rampant Exotic armor made this even faster and easier. This week, Bungie announced it is finally curbing the effectiveness of this technique, though it should mostly affect those players using macros.

The fix will arrive in patch 2.2.0, which arrives sometime in March. Bungie says that after the patch players will still be able to squeeze a little bit more movement speed out of the trick, but over, Titan Skating should still be possible, "just less excessive," the company says. According to the sandbox team, using the glitch (especially with macros), created "an unfair advantage when it comes to the fundamentals of combat gameplay like aiming, positioning, and even networking to some degree." Players who don't use macros shouldn't feel the effects of the patch, the company said. The reason it took so long to fix was likely because it was difficult to curb the trick "without impacting general movement for the Titan class."

What To Watch This Weekend: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, PUBG, And Splatoon 2

Apex Legends doesn't have an esports scene (probably because it just came out this week with a surprise release), but that doesn't mean other games aren't ready for some high-level competition this weekend!

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open tournament has culled over 8,000 online players into a final 16, who'll compete live throughout the day. The action starts sometime between 11am and 2pm CT. You can also catch a similar event for Splatoon 2 on Sunday, featured on the same stream. (Stream)

The PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds National Pro League goes into its second weekend later today with a pair of matches starting at 4pm Central today. (Stream / Schedule)

Report: Mass Layoffs At Activision Blizzard Will Result In Hundreds Of Lost Jobs

Report: Mass Layoffs At Activision Blizzard Will Result In Hundreds Of Lost Jobs

Bloomberg is reporting an upcoming plan from Activision Blizzard to lay off hundreds of workers as the company attempts to restructure and centralize its operations.

Sources tell us the layoffs will come from different parts of the company, including Blizzard, though it's not clear what parts of the studio will be affected. At the end of 2017, Activision employed 9800 people across all sections of the corporation.

The news comes after a rocky few months for Activision. While Call of Duty has been performing well, some things like the split with Bungie, Forsaken not meeting sales expectations, and flat numbers for games like Overwatch have resulted in a weaker price for Activision's stock, which has declined nearly 2.5 percent today.

Weekend Warrior - Become Legendary

It's that time of the week again, folks! Some of us are still gunning our way through Racoon City's zombie horde. Others, however, have set sights on Apex Legends and its tight gunplay and increasingly fun ability-kits. How will you be passing the weekend? Let us know!

Suriel Vasquez (@SurielVasquez) - Looking to score some champion wins with my Apex squad Claire and Mercia.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) - I’m still plugging away at Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts III, but will take a break to go see the new Lego movie. And clean the house, I guess.
