So, hey, what’s going on in the world of Destiny? Glad you asked.
First, Bungie has rolled out a brand-new hotfix to fix things its latest expansion, The Dark Below, broke. From all-important copy-editing for German typos to making Hive shields less porous, the full patch notes are below:
Fixed a typo in the German word for ‘Radiant Energy’
Fixed an issue in which some weapon projectiles were improperly penetrating Hive shields
Rolled back changes induced by a previous Exotic weapon update
Charge up and deactivation now work as originally designed
Players may again encounter a previously known issue which prevents charge up
Both existing and future Raid gear obtained in Crota’s End now begins at Level 30 with an upgrade path to reach Level 32
Raid helmet obtained in Crota’s End now drops on Normal Mode and will be a more frequent drop on Hard Mode
Fixed an issue in which Dead Orbit Hunter cloaks awarded reputation gains for both Dead Orbit and Vanguard/Crucible
Added a replayable node to the Director for the ‘Fist of Crota’ mission
Destiny has also rolled out a brand new Iron Banner event. The new Iron Banner will allow you to test your best gear against other Guardians until Dec. 22. There are two new weapons to earn in the event, Efrideet’s Spear Sniper Rifle and Silimar’s Wrath Auto Rifle, and new armor.
