Character Customization is lacking

I think the customization, as it is right now, is FAR too limited. If I'm going to invest in these characters, then I don't want to be forced to play with 7 or whatever preset faces, a few strange hair styles, and 0 customization of anything besides the face. For instance: I create two characters. One is a Titan, the other is a Hunter. The Titan would probably be quite a bit bulkier than the Hunter since the Titan is lugging around large weapons and heavy armor; however, all of the body types are exactly the same. If I had anything bad to say about Destiny, it would be that the customization right now seems more like a gimmick than a feature. It's like Bungie saying "hey look, you can have different hair styles! Buy our game!" I would ask for more customization, in the form of two possible methods: 1. Way more presets than are currently in the game. 2. More control over appearance, like control of individual features (i.e. jaw width, eye separation, nose shape, etc.) The customization seems similar to that of Star Wars: The Old Republic, but that had so many presets that it was acceptable. Everyone could find their unique look. With the current options in customization, I can't help but feel like I look like at least a third of all the other players. On a separate note, the Hunter seems to be of little use in The Crucible. Right now, the AoE damage effects that the Warlock and Titan can unleash FAR out class the capability of the Hunter. I might recommend perhaps extending the time Golden Gun is active slightly, or perhaps increasing the damage slightly.

    I agree. I wish I could make my guy a little thinner and lighter, as I'm a hunter. I'm an Exo, so I should have a small build as I'm just metal, but it treats me like I'm a giant bulky hunk of meat 300lb human. On a separate note, I agree with the hunters not being viable in multiplayer. I wish Golden gun made you invincible or something, or when it's fired, if you miss your shot, where the bullet hits there's a small explosion ( two explosions at close range to an enemy would kill the enemy ). You cant increase the damage of Golden Gun really since it's already a 1 shot kill.

    • YouTubers who got first-hand gameplay of Destiny at Bungie's Office actually explain that the customization options in the Beta don't represent everything you get to do, more options will be available with the full-game.

      • I agree about the customization. I want some facial hair at the very least! But yeah, 7 presets is very little for a game emphasizing you as your character becoming legend. As far as hunter being worse for PvP, I disagree. I have only played as a hunter so far and was 1st place 85% of the time. Yeah I used my super less than everyone else, but those precision kill bonuses work well and the golden gun is 3 free kills on any of the smaller maps and the easiest super to use against vehicles.

          • Body sizes need to be similar. It would make no sense to play a big hulking guy with a huge hitbox

            • I think there are almost definitely going to be more face/hair options on launch.

            • I doesn't freaking Matter what your guy looks like no one is ever going to look anyways ... tell me you look at the color of eyes other players have and what kind of stubble they may have on their face ... You want to play dress up go get in your mom's closet ... This game is about killing stuff ... Go out and kill stuff.

                • You see the face when in the Tower only. And even then you see the back of his or her head. Also it's the Beta

                • I think some more presets are definitely necessary. However, as an FPS game having different body types is more relevant to gameplay than it is to vanity. As someone said you can't have players with bigger or smaller hitboxes running around. And regarding Hunters I do think they could use a little bit of buffing but probably not. I've been playing a Hunter and do exceptional. While I feel our grenades are by far the weakest, the throwing knife can be amazing once you master the velocity and getting headshots with it. And the golden gun is really just a hit or miss. While you often have to time it right and just waste it, it's the only super where you can be very tactical with how you use it. You can kill three seperate enemies, regardless of how far away they are from each other and it's the only surefire way to stomp through an incinerator. It might take three shots but hey, it does it.

                • Totally agree I've opened a topic too. For me will be awesome with the simple three elements of Halo: Main Color, Secondary Color and Skin ( like Halo 4 of 343i). The armors can't be changed cause is an RPG, so you wear what You find, but for me will be cool if You can choose Your colors and maybe a secondary emblem.

                • For me the game is truly awesome, a perfect addictive mix between fps and rpg. But from the guys of bungie, after Halo I expected more under Customization of the character. To be honest I've never met a "clone" of me but the character will be more cool with the traditional editor elements of Bungie: Main Color, Secondary Color and "skin" like in Halo 4. Will be more cool if available for the ship too. You guys, what do You think about it? I hope they'll add in the complete version.[/quote]
