Bungie has revealed new details about next week’s Destiny 2 update, including re-enabling exotic items like Khepri’s Horn, changing the rewards awarded for completing the “Last Wish” weekly quest, and more. As a live service game, Destiny 2 is an ever-evolving game, and the experience has been tweaked considerably over the course of 6 years. After switching to a seasonal update schedule, Bungie managed to make the game free-to-play, add cross-play, cross-save, and even bring Destiny 2 to platforms like the Epic Games Store.
However, as content and features are constantly being added or tweaked, it also opens the door for some unexpected issues and bugs, something fans seem to think is happening more often lately. In fact, a recently discovered Destiny 2 bug allowed arcstrider hunters to use the Strand ability as well, thanks to the newly added aspect. Bungie has shown its ability to quickly fix major issues with the game, sometimes disabling an item outright when necessary, as in the case of the titan exotic known as Khepri’s Horn.
During the first week of Iron Banner in Season 21, the fancy-helmed Titans were able to finish games in less than a minute, as points earned on capture points quickly filled their team’s meter. After disabling the exotic armor, Bungie revealed in its weekly Destiny 2 blog post that an update scheduled for June 13 will return with the fixes in place. Radius’ Vesper’s explosion sound has been muted when used with certain weapons, and Subracers have also been fixed so their Solar Grenades’ duration is once again increased as intended.
The full patch notes will be out sometime next week, but Bungie also announced some additional fixes to address issues like grenades going through barricades and Dawnguard, and group action damage buffs being nerfed from 20% to 10% .The studio also reiterated that the bonus rewards for completing Hawthorne’s Last Wish weekly quests were unintentional and will disappear with this update. After that, players will only be able to earn one Deepsight weapon per week, and the one obtained from the final chest of the Riven encounter.
Lately, there’s been a lot of chatter in the Destiny 2 community about the lack of content that players feel has been promised. Gambit has been at the center of many conversations, as the game mode hasn’t received meaningful updates in years. Ritual armor sets are another hot topic, with many frustrated that playlist events like Iron Banner or Trials haven’t added new sets in almost a year.
Destiny 2 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
