Destiny 2 Update Fixes Achievement Issue, Faction Rally Delayed By Lucy Wood, 12 Dec 2017 FollowtopicsDestiny 2DestinyBungieFree to PlayLocal MultiplayerXbox One X EnhancedFirst Person ShooterLucy Wood Two Destiny 2 base game achievements that became locked behind DLC ownership when the "Curse of Osiris" expansion launched will be available to all players again.The full update notes are in spoiler tags below, after a summary of how this fix affects ability to unlock the two affected achievements.The The Prestige achievement in Destiny 2 worth 306 pointsComplete a Nightfall strike on Grandmaster difficulty.The Prestige Leviathan raid will drop back to the base game light level of 300, but the Prestige Nightfall will stay at the new level of 330 and thus require DLC ownership for access. This means all players will be able to get the achievement, but it will be adjusted to refer only to the raid. The Lest Ye Be Judged achievement in Destiny 2 worth 121 pointsEncounter an Agent of the Nine somewhere in the system.Trials of the Nine will be accessible to all players except for weeks when a DLC map is featured. Everyone will have the opportunity to get the achievement, but players with only the base game will sometimes be unable to access the activity.*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***With Curse of Osiris now live, it’s clear that we’ve made some mistakes with how we have handled content access. We would like to talk through the reasoning behind our decisions so far and what we are committed to changing moving forward.The Destiny endgame features a variety of activities and playlists that we want to remain relevant to players as they grow more powerful. In Destiny 1, as your character grew more powerful throughout each expansion, some of our best content, like Vault of Glass, was left behind and lost its relevance for players. We wanted a better solution for Destiny 2, where all of our Endgame activities could stay relevant as each Expansion causes your Guardian to grow more and more powerful.The following were our goals when we separated “Normal” and “Prestige” modes:The Normal Leviathan Raid and Normal Nightfall would always stay at a Power level that was accessible to all players.Prestige difficulty would always rise to the new Power cap. It could be the pinnacle of challenge, with the most prestigious rewards, but it therefore would require you to own the latest Expansion and be at the new Power cap.Additionally, the game provides Seasonal, time-limited PvP playlists – Trials of The Nine and Iron Banner. These activities and their rewards are meant to evolve each Season, and they utilize new maps, so they would require you to own the latest content. To play the latest season of Iron Banner or Trials, and earn the new rewards, players would need to own Curse of Osiris. We’ve heard from the community that both of these plans aren’t working. The Prestige Raid was a novel experience that players value, even if they don’t own Curse of Osiris, and it was a mistake to move that experience out of reach. Throughout the lifetime of the Destiny Franchise, Trials has always required that players owned the latest Expansion. However, for Destiny 2, Trials of The Nine launched as part of the main game, so it’s not right for us to remove access to it.To make matters worse, our team overlooked the fact that both of these mistakes disabled Trophies and Achievements for Destiny 2. This was an unacceptable lapse on our part, and we can understand the frustration it has created.Therefore, this week, we will release a hotfix that will make the following changes:The Prestige Leviathan Raid will be brought back down to Power 300, and its rewards will drop down to match the new Power Level. All players will regain access to the Prestige Raid.This will allow access to “The Prestige” Achievement/Trophy for all players.This will also allow all players ability to complete the final step for the Legend of Acrius Exotic Shotgun.Trials of The Nine will only require Curse of Osiris when it features a Curse of Osiris map. For all other weeks, it will be available to all players.This will allow access to “Lest Ye Be Judged” Achievement/Trophy for all players.Trials of The Nine rewards that launched with Destiny 2 will still be accessible to all players.New Seasonal Rewards that launched with Curse of Osiris, such as the new Seasonal Armor Ornaments, will require ownership of Curse of Osiris to acquire.The Prestige Nightfall will remain a pinnacle activity, at the new 330 Power cap. This means Prestige Nightfall will require ownership of Curse of Osiris.Because of this, we will update “The Prestige” Achievement/Trophy to only reference The Prestige Raid.Moving forward, we are investigating adding a 3rd difficulty to all Prestige activities, so that we can provide both a challenge that stays relevant with each new Expansion, and a Prestige version that is available to all players.Normal Nightfall will only require Curse of Osiris when it features a Curse of Osiris map. For all other weeks it will be available to all players.Time limited events – Iron Banner, Faction Rally, and The Dawning, will be made available to all players.We will be postponing tomorrow’s Faction Rally, to ensure all of our players can access the activity and the appropriate rewards.Iron Banner and Faction Rally rewards that launched with Destiny 2 will still be accessible to all players.New Seasonal Rewards that launch with Curse of Osiris, such as the new Seasonal Armor Ornaments, will require ownership of Curse of Osiris to acquire.We expect these changes to go live tomorrow at the end of scheduled maintenance to deploy Update 126.96.36.199. Moving forward, we are also looking to improve on Heroic Strikes, with new challenges, new Modifiers, and free access for all players.Thank you for your patience and feedback as we work to continuously improve the Destiny 2 experience.Scheduled maintenance for Destiny 2 is currently under way and these changes should be live when the game comes back online. The Faction Rally that was due to begin today has been postponed.We've got the full list of Destiny 2 achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
