It looks like PC gamers should begin getting excited for optimizations for the PC that Bungie and Activision are promising for Destiny 2, which is finally coming to the PC later this year, after Destiny being a console exclusive.

Destiny 2 Project Lead, Mark Noseworthy, said that the PC version of Destiny 2 will not only include a FOV slider, but the guns will have no recoil on the PC because the "controller feels good". In what I take away from that, console gamers have slower reactions because of the input delay of joysticks on a controller through to the TV and sub 60Hz displays, where the PC is instant one-for-one with mouse and keyboard to 60Hz through to 240Hz displays.

 

Noseworthy noted: "For instance, there's no recoil on guns on PC because recoil on the controller feels really good. 'I'm firing, I'm firing, I'm firing, oh, I'm losing control of my gun a little bit.' That feels great, especially with magnetism and all the magic in the controller that makes you feel it. With a mouse and keyboard, you don't want the mouse moving without you moving it, so recoil doesn't feel good, so there is no recoil on PC".

 

He continued: "There are a couple of key ways we're going to try and change it, make it so it feels native to that platform, because we want people to feel like Destiny 2 is built for PC".

 

As for the no recoil on weapons on the PC, he added: "I think that's accurate. I don't want to go down in history as the guy promising that... The basic idea is that some things don't work that don't feel good, and those places there are going to be little forks in the road".
