Destiny Beta Gameplay: Crucible PVP and the Iron Banner


The Destiny Beta launched on PS4 and PS3 on Thursday, and I played a ton of it between then and Sunday night. The beta went down for maintenance yesterday and will return tomorrow, at which point Xbox One and 360 owners will be welcomed into this great world that Bungie has created.

I’m not posting my beta impressions article until July 28th, the day after the beta properly ends. So in the meantime, here’s three rounds of PVP action that I recorded.

These videos are just a sample of the videos that are up now on our YouTube channel (go subscribe!). We’ll have a TON more videos up between now and the time game releases on September 9th, as I’m recording everything. Have transferred some to my PC, still have about 40GBs of video on my PS4 waiting to be brought over.

I’ll also be streaming the beta again starting tomorrow night; exploring, story missions, the strike, and of course PVP. Hopefully I can gather up Eric W. and THE MONKEY for a session or two while streaming. Be sure to follow us on Twitch at

The first video is on Shores of Time during regular Crucible action where I do some nice things with the hunter’s awesome Golden Gun. The last two videos are both during the Iron Banner event, which is where level advantages were turned on so that your gear’s defense and weapon’s attack ratings mattered.

Enjoy the videos, and please go subscribe to our YouTube channel and give them a like if you want. You can naturally leave any comments on them right here on this post. If you’re playing on the PS4, feel free to add me (and please include a note letting me know where you got my PSN from) on PSN at PatriotPaine.
