The Season 11, ‘Season of Arrivals’, update for Destiny 2 is now live, and the patch notes are available while the servers go down to implement the changes.

Alongside the new update, Bungie are also unveiling the Fall Expansion on their reveal stream. The new expansion, called Beyond Light, will release on September 22.

But for now, all focus is on the new update, and the developers have revealed all the changes and fixes it includes on June 9.

The game went offline at 12pm EST / 5pm BST, but will be available again after an hour, when the update will be rolled out on all platforms.

Check out the patch notes below.

Destiny 2 update 2.9.0 patch notes

Legendary Armor Ornaments

      • As noted in a previous TWAB, we have shifted the Season 11 armour offering to be a gameplay reward for aspirational content.
      • The Season of Opulence “Intrepid” Ornament sets are returning to the storefront.
    • Season Pass
      • Added an additional 2300 Bright Dust to the Season Pass.
    • Bright Dust Purchases
      • Added a “Flair” section to feature Shaders and Spawn FX.
    • Highly requested items from previous Seasons will once again be available.
      • We’re looking at you, Wishes of Sorrow.
    • We will once again communicate Season 11 Silver-only items at the beginning of the Season.

We’re expecting to have an update later in Season 11 on further changes to Bright Dust acquisition, so keep your eyes peeled.

Sandbox

    • The Powerful Friends armor mod will no longer stack. If multiple copies of this mod are equipped, the mods will provide no bonus stats.
      • Developer Commentary:
        • Only Solar Seasonal mods are intended to stack. No part of Arc mods are intended to have stacking functionality.
        • Powerful Friends granted +20 to Mobility, which players could leverage to get three stat columns to the max of 100 points. The mod is not priced sufficiently to justify its benefits, and increasing its cost would have adverse effects on its primary benefit usage.
        • Season 11 introduces a new Arc mod, granting a similar stat bonus to Strength and will not stack.
    • Enhanced Auto Rifle Loader, Enhance Fusion Rifle Loader, and Enhanced Bow Loader armor mods now have a chance to drop from pinnacle mod sources.

Raid Rewards

The following raid Exotics now have increased drop chances:

    • One Thousand Voices
    • Anarchy
    • Always on Time (Exotic Sparrow from secret chest in Scourge of the Past)

NOTE: Drop chance begins at 10% and increases to a max of 50% over 20 clears.

Trials Rewards

    • Additional Masterwork material rewards now drop at 3, 5, and 7 Trials wins.
    • Added a Trials weekly bounty which unlocks Trials Engrams on Saint-14.
      • The bounty reward will match the Win 3 Milestone reward of the week.
    • Trials Tokens distribution has been rebalanced to focus on wins 3, 5, and 7 of a Trials Passage.
      • This includes repeat Passages.
    • Trials Tokens are no longer awarded from match completions.
      • Tokens are now granted specifically through wins and bounties.
    • Passage of Wealth now doubles the bonus Trials Tokens earned at 3, 5 and 7 Trials wins.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is jam-packed with awesome content right out of the gate, but everyone gets stuck somewhere, and the Technocrat Empire Hunt has proven to be a difficult hurdle to climb. Here’s how to finish it once and for all.

The Technocrat Empire Hunt in Destiny 2: Beyond Light pits players against Praksis, the Technocrat. He is a Fallen from the House of Salvation and trusted lieutenant for Eramis, Kell of Darkness.

Praksis, The Technocrat will do anything to support Eramis and his malicious cause, which puts him on a collision course with Destiny 2: Beyond Light players. It all comes together in the Technocrat Empire Hunt, where players have a chance to eliminate him once and for all.

However, it’s easier said than done. He is extremely powerful, and before you reach him, you’ll need to take on some lesser enemies and finish a series of tasks. 

Here’s everything players will need to know, including a step-by-step guide, some tips for the fight, and what you’ll get once you manage to beat him.

How To Complete The Technocrat Empire Hunt

  • First, make sure you have a power level of at least 1120.
  • Then, locate and enter Bray Exoscience.
  • In typical Destiny 2 fashion, you’ll have to work your way through waves of enemies and take on Fallen Brigs.
  • Next, you’ll need to destroy some shield generators, which will help weaken Praksis, The Technocrat ahead of the final showdown.
  • From there, you’ll have nothing left to do but come face to face with Praksis, The Technocrat and take him down.

Praksis, The Technocrat isn’t a walk in the park. You’ll need to keep moving and avoid getting hit by one of his powerful moves.

Tips To Make The Fight Easier

Praksis, The Technocrat is no slouch. He’s even harder than Phylaks, The Warrior, which many players struggled with.

Luckily, there are some tips you can follow to make it easier.

  • Start moving around the tower the moment the fight begins, and don’t stop until he is toast.
  • Praksis, The Technocrat is a skilled Stasis wilder. He has a series of abilities that deal devastating amounts of damage, especially against players with lower skill levels.
  • He also has a shield, and when he uses it, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the red generators floating in the air and destroy them.
  • When in doubt, don’t forget to use the empowering pool at the entrance to the arena. It will give you rechargeable Stasis abilities that are extremely useful throughout the fight.

Once you’ve managed to beat him, you can return to the Europa camp.

The Coriolis Force Legendary Fusion Rifle

Players who finish The Technocrat Empire Hunt will receive an awesome weapon, the Coriolis Force Legendary Fusion Rifle. It is extremely fast and powerful and shoots a horizontal volley of Void bolts.

The Coriolis Force Fusion Rifle packs a punch in PvE, especially when equipped with perks like One for All and Thresh. It can one-shot enemies in PvP too, but only from close range due to its unique spread. Think of it more like a shotgun.

And with that, you’ll have everything you’ll need to know to finish The Technocrat Empire Hunt.

It might take a bit of trial and error. But as long as you follow some of the tips mentioned in this article, you’ll eventually come out on top.
