Destiny 2 Patch Notes For Update Brings Back Vesper Of Radius

Here's what today's new Destiny 2 update fixes and changes.


Bungie has released a new hotfix update for Destiny 2. Update is out now and is largely concerned with resolving various bugs, but it also brings back a Warlock Exotic that was recently disabled: Vesper of Radius. Read on for the highlights and the full patch notes.

Vesper of Radius was disabled earlier this month, meaning Warlocks couldn't equip the chest armor for a period of time (even as it was being sold by Xur). Vesper allows you to emit a pulse of damage when you cast a Rift, but an exploit was allowing that damage to be dealt without needing a Rift. That bug is now fixed, and with that, the Exotic is back in the rotation.

Another issue this patch resolves involves Stasis crystals, which could be used to wedge your character between it and a wall. By doing this, it was possible to move through closed doors. Another exploit that allowed checkpoints to be used to rack up solo flawless dungeon triumphs has also been addressed.

Finally, problems with crashes when swapping emotes while frozen and one where certain visual settings (motion blur, film grain, and chromatic aberration) are reset should be resolved, too.

You can check out the full Destiny 2 patch notes below. This comes not long after the start of The Dawning--be sure to check out our guide to Dawning recipes and how to give cookies to Riven.
