Destiny 2: Forsaken Update Makes The Ace Of Spades Much Easier To Get

Bungie has rolled out another hotfix for the online shooter.


Bungie has rolled out another patch for Destiny 2 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This one, hotfix, fixes a handful of issues still lingering in the game following the release of the Forsaken expansion, but the most notable change it makes has to do with how to get your hands on Cayde-6's Exotic hand cannon, the Ace of Spades.

The aforementioned gun is the reward you earn for completing the Cayde's Will quest. You first receive it after clearing the Forsaken campaign, but in order to restore the gun to working condition, you'll need to complete a few more tasks before you're actually able to wield it. One of these involves using a hand cannon in Gambit to kill five invaders--other players who infiltrate your side during the mode.

What makes this step particularly difficult is that invaders take more damage to bring down, and any kills you score if you're the invading player aren't counted toward your total. Fortunately, with this latest hotfix, Bungie has simplified the requirements; now, you can complete the step by killing either invaders or general enemies, making it much easier to progress through the quest.

The Ace of Spades is a powerful gun capable of dishing out a ton of damage in Crucible, making it worth your while to complete Cayde's Will and obtain it. If you need help finishing the quest, we've outlined all the steps you need to complete in our guide on how to get the Ace of Spades. If you're looking for another Exotic hand cannon, Xur has you covered right now.

In addition to that, hotfix makes some changes to Heroic adventures and the Dreaming City; now, you only need two weekly bounty completions for the latter's weekly challenge. The patch also resolves a couple of weapon issues pertaining to the BrayTech Legendary Scout Rifle and Origin Story. You can find the full patch notes, courtesy of Bungie's website, below.
