Destiny 2 will feature new PVE adventures known as Flashpoints. The news was confirmed by Destiny 2 game director Luke Smith in a podcast with Kotaku, but what exactlyare they?
Flashpoints are activities that suddenly spring up in the world, drawing players to a location so they can obtain unique loot. Players will be tasked with following treasure maps or fighting special monsters, and we’re sure that there will be many other challenges in store as well
Smith also confirmed that the rewards for completing Flashpoints would be similar to those received from the original game's max-level Nightfall missions. That leads us to believe that these challenges are intended to be end-game content, with the rewards suitable for high-level players.
