GEOfilter question


GEOfilter question

Hi , looking at the xr500 for my son , he plays Destiny 2 & rainbow seige & can see they are compatable games . Odd question , he believes he's identified players in other regions are not as competative / skilled . is it possible to only select a alternative server / region

Re: GEOfilter question

It depends on how flexible the game is to you forcing a materially different geographic location. But he can certainly try. All he needs to do is move is Geo-Filter home location over a different region. Make sure Filtering mode is on then reboot the game. See if he then gets players in a different region (but keep in mind, the game will be a lot laggier!)
