Destiny 2's Lightfall will see the return of Countdown, as well as a new respawn variant called Countdown Rush. In this mode, players are tasked with detonating or defusing bombs, depending on their team, before the round ends.

In addition to these mods, Bungie is implementing a new feature called Crucible Labs. This includes Checkmate Control, where the player sandbox, weapon damage, ability uptime, and ammo are all adjusted. This mode has been designed to encourage players to rely on their skills and tactics, not just the game's mechanics.

Bungie has more plans for Crucible, but this is all the information they have shared for new. Bungie remains committed to giving Crucible more content, so fans of the PvP should keep their eyes set on the future of Destiny 2 in 2023.
