Destiny 2 Patch Notes: Proving Grounds And Xenophage Quest Get Tweaked

Destiny 2 players will have to take on the final boss of the Proving Grounds strike from an even playing field after the latest update is applied.

Comments

After rebalancing Stasis abilities in last month's major patch, this week's latest hotfix update for Destiny 2 focuses on a smaller number of issues that have begun cropping up. Destiny 2's latest Strike, Proving Grounds, will no longer see players take advantage of an out-of-bounds exploit during that level's boss fight. Bungie also noted that players will have to take on the Right of Proving from a more-even playing field. Here's the rundown on update 3.1.1.2.

In the Crucible, an issue where Heavy ammo spawned under the Distant Shore map in several game modes has been addressed, and another issue plaguing players attempting to solve the glyph puzzles for the Xenophage Exotic quest chain has been fixed. Hive Glyphs that needed to be shot with semi-auto, burst, automatic, or energy weapon variants weren't responding correctly, but this problem has now been solved.

One of the other big changes to Destiny 2 didn't last too long last week, as a plan to tweak team-balancing in the PvP Crucible mode was rolled back after it caused problems in the Iron Banner event. Bungie explained that the balance tweak, which matched players up based on connection rather than just skill as it had done in the past, was interacting badly with groups of players being unable to join games.
