Destiny 2 testing Fireteam Finder this week: What to expect

Bungie /

After 10 years, Destiny 2 is finally getting a built-in Fireteam Finder. Announced last year, this new and highly anticipated feature will allow for a streamlined partying process when taking on some of the game’s more difficult team-based content.

It’s a bit crazy to think that a game like Destiny 2, which emphasizes online party-based play would be released without a built-in team finder, but the community got creative, often using mobile apps or posting online to find others. It certainly wasn’t an ideal situation, but it’s one we’ve gotten accustomed to for a decade now. But thankfully, this will soon no longer be the case.

Bungie announced plans for a beta to test the Fireteam Finder. Check out the details below!

Destiny 2: Fireteam Finder beta details

To begin, Bungie will be holding a Raids Stress Test on November 30 from 9:00 a.m. PST to 5:00 p.m. PST. During this stress test, every raid that you have access to will appear on the LFG menu. Bungie is hoping that the stress test will run until 5 p.m. but are also aware that issues may arise, causing them to end it early.

You’ll be able to access the Fireteam Finder from either the Director using the Roster tab or through the Fireteam Finder access point found on every activity’s launch screen. You’ll be able to search for a fireteam or create a listing using a series of options that will help you form the group with specific options to choose from.

It’s important to note that the Fireteam Finder you see in the stress test is not reflective of the final product. This is a work in progress and will change throughout the beta process leading up to launch.

Speaking of launch, the beta period for the Fireteam Finder will begin in December pending the Stress Test results this week. if all goes well with the beta, then the full release should come in late January.

Bungie also officially announced that Destiny 2: The Final Shape has been delayed until June 2024.
