If you don't know, Destiny 2's beta early access phase will start on July 18th and will run through July 20th, 2017 on PS4 and on July 19th through the 20th for the Xbox One. Thankfully, some fine folks on Reddit have found a way for anyone to obtain Destiny 2 beta access through foreign a Xbox Live or PlayStation Network account before the open beta officially commences for everyone. Today will be your only chance to get in on the action early, if you miss out on the pre-order you will have to wait till July 21. First, after you select a class, you will play the game's first story mission, titled "Homecoming". All told the first mission is incredibly packed, but it remains to be seen if the rest of the campaign can keep up that pacing.

You'll reach one area in particular that has a series of giant rotating buzz saws.
It should be mentioned that, at least in the Destiny 2 beta, the modifications do not contemplate exotic armament and it is expected that this will remain the same once the game is released.
