Another PC-only update for Destiny 2 has arrived. Ahead of the debut of Faction Rallies on the platform, Bungie has released the 22.214.171.124 hotfix, which is intended to resolve a technical issue that cropped up with last week's patch.
The patch notes for update 126.96.36.199 are more accurately described as the patch note--there's only a single thing addressed here. According to Bungie, this hotfix should address the "periodic hitches" that would occur while playing for some people following the installation of update 188.8.131.52. That patch fixed a problem with clan rosters not showing up and performance issues that would crop up after playing the game for an extended period of time.
A more substantial update, 1.0.6, was released for all platforms last week. In addition to an emote bug fix, it made changes to the mercy rule in Crucible and score limits in a variety of modes. Additionally, it tweaked Faction Rallies and how its rewards are handed out.
The limited-time Faction Rallies event is scheduled to return on November 7, following the latest weekly reset--which now occurs at 1 AM PT, rather than 2 AM PT, due to the end of daylight savings time. It will offer new Faction Rally armor and weapon rewards and see each of the three Factions--Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, and New Monarchy--competing to come out on top. Whichever of the three wins will offer an exclusive weapon for sale to all players (with members of that Faction receiving a major discount).
