Destiny 2 Update Will Make Malfeasance Quest Easier To Begin

Update is planned for October 30.


Bungie has announced two big planned updates for Destiny 2. One of the them, Update 2.0.5, is designed to patch any issues brought up through player feedback, including a concern that the spawn rate for the Ascendent Primeval Servitor--an enemy necessary for earning the Exotic hand cannon Malfeasance--is too low.

In a blog post, Bungie wrote, "During week three of the curse cycle, also known as a full-curse week, the Ascendant Primeval Servitor will have almost the same chance to spawn as any other Primeval. We will also be increasing the chance for the boss to spawn during lesser-curse weeks, but it will still be lower than during a full-curse week."

In order to earn Malfeasance, you need to acquire the Seething Heart quest that is only possible to attain through killing an Ascendant Primeval Servitor in Gambit. The increased spawn rate of the boss enemy should make that process easier and faster. However, Bungie adds that this change comes with some drawbacks.

"For full transparency, since the Ascendant Primeval Servitor spawn rate will increase significantly when these changes are released, we are tweaking how ship and Sparrow rewards drop from the boss," Bungie wrote, "Vanity items are no longer guaranteed drops for subsequent boss kills after you earn the quest, instead the vanity items will now only have a chance to drop."

Destiny 2 Update 2.0.5 is scheduled to come out on October 30. The game is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
