It's only been one day, but for many Destiny 2 players, it feels like the Beta has already given up all it has to offer. The beta has an opening mission, the Inverted Spire Strike, and two PVP modes to play, which is essentially the same content I previewed back in May. But while the PVP matches are straightforward, players are already finding new paths and glitches that point towards future content in the game.
The Inverted Spire is a Strike available on the planet Nessus, focusing on a very specific mission that sends you down into the planet's core. Nessus will also be available on Patrol mode in the future, allowing players to explore at their leisure. It's in Patrol mode that players will be able to find new enemies and Lost Sectors. You can think of Lost Sectors as dungeons that are hidden by a puzzle or task.
On the Youtube channel BlackOpsUnit115, a player essentially wanders through a world of broken levels and disappearing geometry on Nessus. This player eventually finds themselves at a door, that looks a lot like the door to the old Vault of Glass raid in the first Destiny. Folks believe this is a door to the Lost Sector. But how would you open that door?
For a potential answer, we head over to Reddit. User Omguscat found some Vex Launchers that will ultimately lead you to new kinds of enemies spawning.
"When you spawn into Nessus for the Inverted Spire, go forward and to your right," writes Omguscat. "Cross the small waterfall area and work your way to near the giant pillar that the lost sector door is on (there are several posts about this). Near the base of that door, right by the small waterfall in the vex milk river, there will eventually spawn two Hobgoblins and an unpowered vex launcher. Kill the hobgoblins to power the launcher, then ride it."
This begins of series of Vex Launchers, where you'll then have to kill more Hobgoblins. The final Vex Launcher sends you back to where you started, but new enemies have spawned in the place of the original Hobgoblins. The new enemies are Storm Minotaurs, backed up by more powerful Quantum Hobgoblins. Folks are on Reddit are speculating that this is how Lost Sector door on Nessus will likely be opened.
Of course this is all speculation at the moment. We'll find out more when Destiny 2 launches on September 6, 2017 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC launch on October 24, 2017. The PlayStation 4 beta is currently available, the Xbox One beta begins this morning at 10 AM PT, and the open beta kicks off July 21 at 10 PT.
