Two, much need­ed, planned updates are head­ing to Des­tiny 2 over the next month. Bungie hopes these down­loads will be worth, “putting on your cal­en­dar.” They also gave a pre­view of what to expect, releas­ing the first update in the mid­dle of this month and the last at the end. 

A few weapons will be get­ting buffed in these updates, all for PvE only, includ­ing Scout Rifles, Fusion Rifles and Sword Dam­age. It also improves odds of receiv­ing a For­sak­en Exot­ic drop from Exot­ic Rewards, while reduc­ing the num­ber of dupli­cates.

Aside the gen­er­al title updates, on Octo­ber 16th, Fes­ti­val of the Lost will begin. It includes a cos­tume par­ty and a quest to o solve a mur­der. More will be revealed next week:  

Des­tiny 2 Update 2.0.4, ten­ta­tive­ly sched­uled for Octo­ber 16, 2018:
  • Added the abil­i­ty to hov­er over Lost Sec­tors to see their name once a play­er has loot­ed them
  • Play­ers can now track up to three pur­suits
  • Added Through Fire and Flood, Zeno­bia D, and Crooked Fang-4fr to the world Leg­endary pool— Edge Tran­sit will have some com­pa­ny
  • Increas­ing Scout Rifle dam­age in PvE and against non-play­er ene­mies in Gam­bit
  • Fixed a bug where Prime Engrams were going straight to the Post­mas­ter at the end of Cru­cible match­es; they will now show along­side oth­er end-of-match rewards
  • Added trans­mat effects to Col­lec­tions, under the Flair cat­e­go­ry
      • Track­ing for acquired trans­mat effects began with the launch of For­sak­en on Sep­tem­ber 4; trans­mat effects gained (inven­to­ry or Post­mas­ter), used, or dis­man­tled after that date will be unlocked in Col­lec­tions
      • Trans­mat effects are unlocked when added to play­er inven­to­ry, NOT when you gain ships that have them pre-sock­et­ed
  • We have iden­ti­fied a very rare issue where the Gam­bit inva­sion por­tal will not reac­ti­vate once used, and we are cur­rent­ly devel­op­ing a fix
  • We are devel­op­ing a fix for an issue where One Thou­sand Voic­es may cause loud screech­ing audio when fired while straf­ing or jump­ing

Des­tiny 2 Update 2.0.5, ten­ta­tive­ly sched­uled for Octo­ber 30, 2018. Please note, the changes list­ed below are cur­rent­ly in devel­op­ment. These could change, be impact­ed by delays, or cut if issues are found.

  • Rebal­anc­ing func­tion­al­i­ty of Distribution/Dynamo perks, requir­ing play­ers to be near oppo­nents for Super ener­gy ben­e­fits
  • Slight­ly increas­ing Sword dam­age in PvE to address play­er feed­back
  • Slight­ly increas­ing Fusion Rifle dam­age in PvE
  • Increas­ing via­bil­i­ty of Malfea­sance in PvE and Gam­bit activ­i­ties
  • Adjust­ing vis­i­bil­i­ty of the Titan’s Ban­ner Shield, mak­ing it eas­i­er for play­ers to see through the effects
  • Adjust­ing Exot­ic rewards to help reduce the num­ber of dupli­cate drops
      • Play­ers may still receive dupli­cates, but there will be bet­ter chances for For­sak­en exotics when receiv­ing Exot­ic rewards
  • The chance for a Night­fall Unique Reward to drop will increase each time a Night­fall is com­plet­ed with­out a unique drop
  • Adding Mas­ter­work Cores as rewards for spe­cif­ic Spi­der “Want­ed” boun­ties and gen­er­al Scrap­per boun­ties
  • Reduc­ing the time for sin­gle-shad­er dele­tion from your inven­to­ry
  • We are devel­op­ing a fix for an issues where a team will defeat the Ascen­dant Primeval Servi­tor, but the oppos­ing team receives cred­it for the kill
