Destiny 2 Patch Notes For Update

Server maintenance is complete, and Bungie has released a new hotfix update for Destiny 2 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.


Destiny 2 servers are now back online following maintenance, and you can begin playing the online shooter again. When you first log in, you'll need to download and install a small hotfix, update You can get the full rundown on what to expect from the update below in the full patch notes, which cover PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia versions of the game.

The patch notes don't feature any major additions or changes, as is expected with most hotfixes. One thing of note is that some Leviathan raid rewards have been changed to a weekly lockout; you'll continue to earn multiple weapon and armor rewards, but XP, glimmer, and chances for Exotic and Bright Engrams are all now limited.

Additionally, the Festering Core Master Nightfall's Power level requirements have been fixed--it had been operating at 750 even though 1080 was listed in the Director. Bungie says you should expect a "much greater challenge" next time you give it a try.

You can read the patch notes for Hotfix below or on Destiny 2's official website.
