Destiny 2: basic concepts (user interface)

This is a small guide that goes through the basic concepts of destination. This guide assumes that you are familiar with fps shooters for pc, and will not go into details.

First person screen

RADAR: In the top corner of your screen you will see the radar, it will show you the general directions of the enemies when they are close to you. Remember that this does not show the place where it is, only its address.

BUFFS: Go away from the radar on the left side of the screen, you will see the buffs you have. When you have an advantage (a positive effect) or an advertising advantage (a negative effect), it appears here.

Abilities and weapons

SKILLS: in the lower corner of the screen you will see your skills and weapons. You have 4 abilities in total: grenade, body to body, class and super.

When a symbol is completely colored, it means that its ability is indicated for use. If not, that means it’s still loading.

If your superbar is yellow, it means your super is ready for use.

Each class has its own class ability (witches have a grenade, titans have a barricade, hunters have a laugh).

WEAPONS: to the right of your skills you can also see the collection of weapons and ammunition here.

Note: as you can see in the image above, my skills are not colored, which means you can not use them at the moment and need to recharge.

WORLD INFORMATION: Also in the picture you can see the text on the left side of the screen just above the super bar. It is their global notifications, they are the informants of things happening in the world and are in its immediate aftermath.
