Remember how Bungie bungled Destiny 2’s XP scaling event and had to disable the whole thing after players found that the game was throttling the experience that characters were receiving? Well, part of this “fix” apparently included doubling the amount of XP required to reach the next level.
After another player investigation into this stealth change, Bungie confirmed that the new requirement was the case and that the game hadn’t been updated to accurately reflect that on the UI. So now it takes 160K to attain a new level, up from 80K previously. Woohoo.
On the plus side, Game Director Luke Smith told fans that they should expect to hear more details about the December update this week: “It includes: economy updates (vendors and acquiring their gear, tokens, legendary shards), investment updates (new reward systems for weapons and armor), gameplay updates, and more.”
