Speaking with PCGamesN, Destiny 2’s Gameplay Lead Justin Truman mentioned Destiny 2’s lockout loadout mechanic. This will see players unable to change weapons or abilities once a raid begins. Truman stated..
“When the activity starts, your loadouts are restricted for the duration of that activity,” said Truman. “An example is the Hard Mode Raid, where we wanna make it really about the tactical decision-making of: ‘what do I want to bring in to maximize my ability to play this strike with these modifiers on?’ You have to make those decisions up front, because we then lock your ability to change your loadout for the duration.”
Destiny 2 releases on September 6 for Xbox One and Playstation 4 while PC gamers will have to wait until October 24.
