Motto: If Your Not First Your Last!!!!
Destiny 2 is heading to PC over a month after it debuts on consoles, which means PC shooter fans will have to be patient. They'll also have to be careful about how they stream the game, according to a post on Bungie's website. [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

According to Bungie, popular streaming software such as OBS and XSplit will only work in certain configurations, while hardware-based solutions have more leeway. If you want to stream using OBS or XSplit, you'll have to keep the game in Windowed or Borderless Fullscreen mode, and use the "Screen Capture" or "Window Capture" method, rather than the traditional "Game Capture" option. Using an Elgato, AVerMedia device (or an Nvidia graphics card's native Shadowplay function), you can stream without having to sacrifice CPU horsepower in windowed mode.

Additionally, those looking to use third-party overlays (such as those found chat apps like Discord or Mumble) won't work, though you can still receive notifications from those apps. Framerate counters found in third-party apps aren't compatible, either.

Finally, Bungie notes the list on their site is not comprehensive. "The above listed application features are examples of features that are known to be incompatible with Destiny 2 on PC," the company says. "The examples listed on this page are not all encompassing, and players may encounter issues with the features of other applications that rely on code being inserted into the game client. Players are to run these applications' features at their discretion while running Destiny 2."
