WTFIX 2021 Community Survey

We sent out the call and you answered! Over 500 Guardians from all over the world completed our 2021 Destiny Community Survey. Here is a breakdown of the submissions.

Picture for question How do you typically play Destiny 2?

How do you typically play Destiny 2?

Here, we found that nearly half of you are solo players, while the rest usualy play with friends or clanmates.

1
With friends/clanmates
51.4%
2
Alone
46.6%
3
With a fireteam from LFG
2.0%

What type of player would you consider yourself?

This one was a little surprising! The vast majority of respondents were PvE players. We know there's a large PvP community, but perhaps it's smaller than it used to be. (Or, perhaps they don't use our website!)

1
PvE (mostly strikes, patrol, dungeons, & raids)
83.8%
2
PvP (mostly crucible, iron banner, & trials)
16.2%

Which character class do you primarily play?

No surprises here. Players were fairly even split among the three classes. Although, seeing as they won the Guardian Games, where all my Titans at?

1
Hunter
38.6%
2
Warlock
36.6%
3
Titan
24.7%

What platforms do you play on?

This really illustrates how the Destiny PC community has grown since Destiny 2's launch. However, many console players ALSO play on PC, thanks to CrossSave. Once CrossPlay comes to Destiny this year, this stat won't matter as much — and we're psyched about that!

1
Steam/PC
73.5%
2
PlayStation 4
22.0%
3
Xbox One
19.7%

PlayStation 5

5

6

In an average week, how many hours do you spend playing Destiny 2?

Clearly our visitor population plays A LOT of Destiny! More than 90% of respondents play for over five hours per week; more than half play for over ten!

1
10-20 hours
37.7%
2
5-10 hours
31.9%

20+ hours
20.4%
4

How would rate the overall state of Destiny 2?

Well, there's not a lot that we can say about this. Clearly, many players think Destiny is an enjoyable game, but that Bungie still has some work to do.

Where do you get your information on what's happening in Destiny 2?

It's great to see that our audience is well informed, and actually reads Bungie's updates! It's also encouraging so to see so many players discussing the game with friends and clanmates!

In a typical week, which activities do you typically complete?

Here, we see that most player prioritize completing activities that award Pinnacle gear. (No surprise there.) It was surprising to see Trials at the bottom of the list, though.

How would you rate your enjoyment of each of the following activities during the current season?

Finally, we see that players enjoy challenging endgame PvE activities the most. Raids and Dungeons were the most popular, with Trials and Competitive PvP once again falling to the bottom of the pack.
