Destiny 2 gamers have lastly cracked a puzzle that has plagued them since final week. However, the reward hardly appeared price their effort because it was simply an unique weapon that they knew was already coming to the recreation.
Bungie dropped a particularly advanced puzzle mission final week known as “Exploring the Corridors of Time” in its weekly reset. The quest has gamers making an attempt to navigate their means via a sophisticated time maze accessed through Osiris’ Sundial. The solely clues exhibiting the means via the hexagonal labyrinth were symbols showing on obelisks that appeared to vary regularly for every participant.

Kotaku notes, hundreds of gamers communicated their findings via Discord, Reddit, and Twitch, with some streamers dropping nights of sleep over it. Their efforts lastly paid off at round 4am EST Monday. The reward: an unique fusion rifle known as “Bastion,” which Bungie had already introduced for a January 28 launch.
While fairly cool, it was not what gamers had anticipated for such a advanced puzzle that took a whole lot, if not hundreds, of man-hours to resolve. Considering the weapon shall be available subsequent week, the uniqueness of the prize was considerably underwhelming. Many thought and hoped it could be the peculiar sword seen throughout the quest (no spoilers) or an unique weapon from the unique Destiny.
It would appear that Bungie’s intent was to provide gamers who accomplished the maze the weapon upfront of its launch. However, contemplating it took virtually the whole community to resolve it earlier than Bastion made its debut makes it that rather more lackluster.
That mentioned, gamers did get pleasure from the loopy time-shifting puzzle that exposed lore and a shocking twist, which we won’t spoil right here. “Whoever came up with the labyrinth puzzle is the real GOAT. You deserve 6 raises.”
