It appears that once you hit zero ammo, the game starts to feel bad for you. After about 30-40 seconds, if you have no ammo in both your primary and secondary weapon, you magically start getting more.
I wish real life was like that
Never noticed this, but I don’t think I’ve hit a point where I was completely empty.
Closest I got was when @Auth and I were battling those level 12 Knights way down in the moon. Good times, lol.
Not sure how I feel about this, but my initial reaction leans toward negative.
I’m on the fence about it as well. Suppose it’s something easy enough to try. Entirely possible that @Vocino walked over some ammo pickups and didn’t realize it.
Side note as well - Did you purchase ammo packs from the vendor? I’ve never done it, but I wonder if those get automatically used when you’re out of ammo.
This is blasphemy!
No, I read the same thing somewhere earlier today. He speaks the truth!
Haha, wasn’t trying to call him out or anything.
I trust you guys!
You know I was kidding.

Thanks for the link. I don’t think this would bother me to much, suppose it’ll come in handy with strikes / raids or some bosses.
It tells me that Destiny is a casual game, which I think we already knew. A big part of classic PC MMO raiding is planning and setup. That’s just not really that important with Destiny but I feel like that’s probably a good thing since it’s console-based, at least for now.
I like being able to pick up a controller and just go kick ass on a planet somewhere. I don’t need to think about it. That’s a good thing as far as I’m concerned.
EDIT: However, I think it goes without saying: Don’t waste any credits on ammo.
I’d like to test out the free ammo thing with a Raid and Strike.
I get the feeling that Destiny is a casual game, but the endgame content is for the more hardcore.
