Destiny 2: Beyond Light exploit kills bosses in one hit

Beyond Light’s frosty reception continues as a new exploit has been uncovered in the game. A super-powerful technical hitch that can instantly decimate bosses. Here’s the new exploit to one-hit kill bosses in Destiny 2: Beyond Light.

Beyond Light has had its fair share of criticism since its launch with glitches and issues not helping its cause. But the newest bug not only saps the fun from some of the game’s biggest encounters, but it makes them a joke.

So far Bungie has had to remove guns for being too overpowered and they’ve even had Destiny 2 players saying Stasis is busted in the Crucible. This exploit only furthers Beyond Light’s somewhat frustrating beginning to its new era.

Here is how you can take advantage of this new exploit to obliterate bosses in Destiny 2 Beyond Light.

How to perform the exploit

Bungie would like a word with you.

One of the many new additions to Destiny 2, with Beyond Light, has been the introduction of Stasis as a shiny new ice element. It’s opened the doors for new weapons, sub-classes, and abilities. The new Shadebinder Warlock subclass has not only added depth to the game but this troublesome glitch too.

The Destiny 2 Raid Champions – Clan Redeem – are the ones who appear to have discovered this ridiculous exploit. For convenience, you may need to already have the Salvation’s Grip Exotic grenade launcher in your inventory.

This is what you’ll need to do:

  1. Buddy up to make a party of five
  2. Begin a boss fight
  3. Have all five members of the party spam the Winter’s Wrath super
  4. Combine this with either grenades fired from Salvation’s Grip or several Stasis Grenades
  5. Watch the boss fall to this power

It’s really that simple. A quick barrage of supers and grenades and the DPS goes through the roof.

Deep Stone Crypt to be delayed?

The wait is nearly over for Destiny 2’s raid – Deep Stone Crypt is the newest inclusion to Destiny’s storied annals.  But will this new boss-killer glitch cause a setback for the highly-anticipated raid?

Well, according to Bungie’s Senior Community Manager, dmg04, this is what will happen:

So there you have it, the “World’s First” event to crown the first victors of the Deep Stone Crypt raid will go ahead after all.

The assumption is that Bungie thinks they can fix the exploit in time. Things may change between now and the start of the Worlds First race.

Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris delayed again

Despite the new PVE content released in Beyond Light, the Destiny 2 expansion also led to a delay for the game’s top PVP mode: Trials of Osiris. Originally delayed until November 27, Bungie has once again pushed back the activity’s launch in Beyond Light.

The core of the Destiny franchise has always revolved around one thing: the chase for new loot. Since the release of the original Destiny, developer Bungie has aimed to provide players with interesting and powerful gear to grind for.

While the bulk of content in Destiny has always been PVE-related – Strikes, seasonal activities, and Raids – the franchise has maintained a strong PVP player base as well. For those who spend their time in the Crucible, Trials of Osiris is the top-tier activity to look forward to since its reintroduction in Season of the Worthy.

Following the release of Beyond Light, Destiny 2’s pinnacle PVP activity has now seen not one but two separate delays. The game’s community is once again expressing their frustration with Bungie’s handling of the popular 3v3 mode.

Trials of Osiris delayed again

With the release of Beyond Light, developer Bungie introduced Stasis subclasses into Destiny 2. While most players enjoy the new Darkness-based abilities, the game’s PVP community has been less than thrilled with the performance of Stasis in the Crucible.

Bungie’s first official response to Stasis in PVP came when the developer announced the original delay of Trials only two days after Beyond Light’s release. Then, on November 27 – the same day that Trials of Osiris was supposed to make its debut in Beyond Light – Bungie once again announced a delay in the mode’s release via their support account on Twitter.

While Bungie community manager dmg04 indicated the delay was due to another Stasis-related issue, players listed off other potential causes including issues with swords in the Crucible, and even a bug that turn players invisible.

Community frustrated with second delay

For some of the Destiny 2 community, patience has run out since the original delay. Many prominent content creators have expressed their frustration regarding Bungie’s handling of Trials in Beyond Light.

Destiny 2 streamers GernaderJake and Gigz, both of whom participate in Trials of Osiris regularly, voiced their concerns with how Bungie is handling the game’s top PVP activity.

GernaderJake stated his belief that there were better ways for Bungie to address the issues instead of simply disabling Trials of Osiris entirely.

Gigz called out the developer for their lack of attention to PVP – something Bungie has specifically mentioned in the past when discussing their design philosophy in regards to the Crucible.

Although many of the responses were negative, some tried to put a more positive spin on things. Destiny 2 YouTuber KackisHD joked that Bungie continues to delay Trials because the game mode’s reward location – The Lighthouse on Mercury – was vaulted when Beyond Light released.

When is Trials coming to Beyond Light?

While Bungie confirmed a return date for Trials of Osiris after the first delay, the developer did not confirm when the mode would make its return in their announcement on November 27.

Players should keep an eye on Bungie’s social media for further updates on the return of Trials.
