I’m still not sure why they introduce Heavy into the match so quickly. First Heavy spawn should be at two minutes, not 45 seconds.

What the Heavy spawn really does is establish the conflict. You have to at least contest it, and in most games a clean pickup by one team off the bat is unusual.

A lot of the complaints about D2Y1 were related to the slow pace of PvP, where hanging back and getting picks was more rewarding than aggressive gameplay. I like Destiny best when it rewards decisive, aggressive strategies, and contesting Heavy spawns usually results in that type of gameplay.

Now, in the situation where someone actually does get clean Heavy, things can get frustrating, so I'd like to see that amount of ammo reduced (which I think they did here as well). Especially for Machine Guns.

MG ammo was reduced in all cases where ammo is shared. But I don’t think all modes had that change. Albeit rockets still pick more than one round off heavy last I checked which I consider questionable at best.

You only get one rocket when ammo is shared. Maybe you get more if you are the first one to pick it up, but I was definitely only getting a single rocket every time I picked up it after someone on my team had already activated it.

It’s a decent start.

You get one whether you pick it up first or not. In modes where only one person gets it (eg Showdown this week), you get 2.

I stand corrected. I must have been running into people hoarding/similar looking Guardians running Wardcliff.
