Bungie took the servers down for Future 2 in the present day for about three hours as a way to carry out upkeep and difficulty some hotfixes for patch 1.zero.6 to assist enhance the sport in some key areas. Here is a number of the issues they added to the sport as a way to deal with some longstanding points that players had.
Over on the Destiny sub-Reddit, Bungie made a submit detailing what they addressed throughout the server downtime whereas the workforce carried out upkeep and in addition brushed up a number of the backend points.
Crucial hotfix truly comes within the type of a difficulty centering round efficiency degradation. Apparently, PC gamers would discover that Destiny 2 would slowly start to carry out worse and worse over time. The patch notes do not say if the efficiency degradation ultimately led to the sport locking up or not working, however now that the problem is fastened, PC players should not have to fret about it anymore.
One other minor points was additionally fastened particularly for the PC model as effectively, the place the clan rosters wouldn’t present up correctly.
And, talking of issues not exhibiting up correctly… one other bizarre bug in Future 2 was that gamers would enter right into a public area and it will be utterly empty throughout the free roam areas. It is in all probability a scary bug understanding that the realm is meant to be populated with exercise however there’s simply nothing there… no enemies, no gamers, no NPCs… nothing. This Omega Man-style glitch has been fastened, so you may not enter right into a free roam space feeling just like the final Guardian on Earth.
One other extra sinister glitch was discovered and glued, which ejected gamers into orbit. I do not know how that labored precisely as a result of Bungie would not clarify the place it was occurring, however it will be fairly humorous if it was throughout the transitional screens — you are flying towards a planet solely to get ejected into area. I am undecided the place this glitch was going down precisely, however there aren’t too many locations the place you’ll be able to fly into orbit, apart from perhaps the ultimate phase throughout the struggle in opposition to Dominus Ghaul.
Bungie wasn’t simply on bug squashing obligation for the Destiny 2 upkeep. The hotfix additionally makes some gameplay changes as effectively, together with Faction Tokens being rewarded to gamers who full Strikes. You may earn wherever wherever between 5 and 9 tokens per Strike completion versus incomes solely three to seven.
You may additionally be capable to purchase 10 to 18 Faction Tokens once you first full a Dusk occasion. And finishing Heroic public occasions have diminished Faction Tokens from eight down to only 5. Bungie additionally eliminated the power to obtain Faction Tokens from destroying enemy assets, however you do acquire three Faction Tokens by opening chests within the Misplaced Sector.
Whereas lots of players had been upset with the upkeep inflicting the sport to turn out to be inaccessible throughout the center of the afternoon, the upkeep for Future 2 was solely three hours lengthy, so it wasn’t all that dangerous. You should not have troubles accessing the sport at this level.
