The project lead for PC of Destiny 2, David Shaw, has clarified the rumors going around that there will be no weapons recoil on PC. The latest update indicates that Shaw made it clear that there will still be weapons recoil on PC, but it will be heavily modified. He made his clarifications in some of his recent tweets.
Will There Be No Recoil?
Previously there were reports saying that the PC version of Destiny 2 contains a big difference than the Xbox One and PS4 versions. That refers to the no recoil feature for the weapons. Without any kicks, the skill requirements of the game drastically reduced. Consequently, it will also lower the PvP bar.
This latest update came from Mark Noseworthy, also a project lead for Destiny 2. In an interview, Noseworthy stated that there is "no recoil on guns on PC because recoil on the controller feels really good." He further elaborated on his statement by saying gamers wouldn't want the mouse to move without them moving it. That would obviously by horrifyingly strange. So, Noseworthy concluded that "there is no recoil on PC."
David Shaw Says There Will Be
What would the statement of David Shaw, the other Destiny 2 project lead mentioned previously, mean? Perhaps knowing about the effects of the rumors on the non-recoil feature of the game's PC version, Shaw was induced to make this clarificatory statement. To wit, Shaw said that there's still recoil on Destiny 2 PC but it's heavily modified "to suit the mouse and keyboard control scheme."
Actually, Noseworthy issued a caveat when he made the statement that Destiny 2 on PC has no recoil. When asked if there will be no recoil on all the guns, he replied: "I don't want to go down in history as the guy promising that." It appears that this statement is designed as a hedge to his previous statements.
