Destiny’s Myths Busted (Or Confirmed)

Destiny’s Myths Busted (Or Confirmed)

Remember the awesome Grand Theft Auto V Mythbusters YouTube series? Now Destiny is getting the same treatment.

As much as I love Destiny, it’s hardly as… mechanically diverse as a game like Grand Theft Auto V, so I have a hard time believing this series will last as long as the brilliant Grand Theft Auto V one. I just can’t see them finding as many hilariously obtuse things to test. That said, this’ll be fun while it lasts for sure.

The highlight from this video, I think, is the fact that you can legit avoid damage from a Warlock’s Axiom Bolt by sitting down. I’m totally going to try this in the crucible. Just casually chill out on the ground if he fires one at me.

Yeaaaaah, I don’t think that’s going to fly.


  • There are more mythbusters episodes on far smaller and simpler games y’know? A number of them arguably a similar level of complexity to Destiny.

  • I’ve always maintained that these were never myths, but hypotheses since I doubt a lot of them were widely maintained beliefs that were mostly false. Regardless of the nomenclature though, that was somewhat educational. I already knew about the first two, but crouch-peeking and “Emote-protection” (It’s like the /dance invulnerability in SW:TOR) were things I never knew about.
