Bungie announced today that Destiny 2 will be making its PC move from Battle.net to Steam on October 1
The studio noted that the transition would happen back in January, when it announced that it was separating from publisher Activision Blizzard to be the sole company in charge of Destiny. Battle.net is a PC games launcher created by Blizzard. It mostly hosts Blizzard games but does include a couple from other Activision studios, notably Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Destiny 2.
Destiny 2 Legendary Edition includes: Destiny 2: Forsaken; Destiny 2: Shadowkeep; Destiny 2: Beyond Light; Warning! This DLC requires the base game Destiny 2 on Steam in order to play. Home » Destiny 2 » Destiny 2 How to Transfer Character from PS4 to PC Steam Destiny 2 allows you to transfer your characters from PS4 to PC. Once Shadowkeep launches, it will actually allow you to share your character between platforms, provided you have the same version on each one (meaning the same expansions and DLCs).

Now that Activision Blizzard will have nothing to do with Destiny 2, Steam makes sense as a more neutral home for the online shooter. October 1 is also the day that Destiny 2 will launch its free-to-play version, New Light, and new expansion, Shadowkeep. It’ll be a busy day for Bungie.
PC players can do a one-time transfer to carry over all of their characters and progress from Battle.net to Steam. Aside from starting the game from a new launcher, the experience should be the same.

The whole PC player base of Destiny 2 has migrated to Steam a few days ago, and the move cause some issues. A number of things don’t work like they used to, back on Battle.net, and one of them is creating and joining fireteams. Halsey twitter. If you want to join a group, you’ll either have to have the other members on your friends list, or engage in some chat command-fu. It’s easier than it sounds, but it’s also not at all intuitive. This guide will show you how to join and create Destiny 2 Fireteams on Steam.
How to join Fireteam on Steam?
Using the friends list is the easy way – you just do it like you do for any other multiplayer game on Steam. However, Destiny 2 won’t work if you have more than 300 friends on your list, so that’s kinda limited. You can’t just add people whenever you want to play with them. Thankfully, you can get around this limitation using the in-game chat commands. If you use Discord, make sure you join the Destiny 2 LFG PC server, as it’s a great place to find people who want to play. Once you’ve found someone willing to play with you, you’ll have to do the following:
- Make sure your fireteam settings make them open to the public.
- Open up the chat window by pressing Enter.
- Type in “/id” (without the quotation marks), and the game will show you your Steam ID.
- Copy that number and send it to the other person(s).
- The ones joining should type “/join” (without the quotation marks), followed by the Steam ID of the person hosting.
This way, you don’t have to stress your grief-stricken friends list with more people than you have to, and you still get to play with like minded individuals.
