Bungie has released a hotfix for Destiny 2 outlined in the 184.108.40.206 update patch notes that’s bringing a swarm of fixes to everything from Collections, Umbral Engrams, and the Fallen SABER strike, among others.
Following up the base 3.1.0 update from a couple of weeks back, the developers are back at it to clean up some of the more nuanced problems that Year 4 has been facing.
An interesting inclusion in the Destiny 2 hotfix 220.127.116.11 is the touchup to weapon Mods which people are celebrating since it has implications for fans of the Hand Cannon targeting mod and Shotgun Ammo Finder.
While there’s still no fix to pressing issues like Dunemarchers’ chain lightning, multiplayer rubber banding, Warlock stasis melee, and the like, there’s still plenty to unpack for the Destiny community.
Bounties, Pursuits, Challenges
There’s a host of fixes coming down into Destiny’s player challenges, primarily dealing with Weekly Challenges as well as Valor resets that would bug other game mechanisms.
There was an issue where Weekly Challenges would drop engrams at a higher Power than intended. While some might have benefited from this, the issue should be fixed from here on.
Additionally, Bungie also “reduced the number of wins required for the Legendary Glory Triumph from 50 to 5” that is more in tune with Season of the Hunt’s requirements.
Meanwhile, Destiny players would be unable to reset their Valor and Infamy after four resets and one reset, respectively. But the devs have made it a point to implement a fix to that in the update.
Destiny 2 Fallen S.A.B.E.R. strike
After weeks of questions looming on the Fallen S.A.B.E.R. strike since the Feb 9 roadmap teased the playlist, the Destiny 2 hotfix 18.104.22.168 is finally going to fix the access that players didn’t previously have.
Now people can get into the Strike via the Strikes Playlist or Direct Launch Node to finally grind the fan-favorite scenario.
To get a complete picture of the Destiny 2 hotfix 22.214.171.124, take a look at the patch notes below, courtesy of Bungie.
