Destiny 2 Hotfix Accompanies Weekly Reset

By Rebecca Smith, 8 days ago
Every week, Destiny 2 goes through a weekly reset where Bungie resets all progression and rewards in a variety of modes, such as Raid Challenge Encounters, Gambit Bounties, and Nightfall Strikes. Alongside this week's reset came a hotfix, Hotfix, that made a variety of gameplay improvements and fixed a number of bugs.

You can find a full list of changes in the patch notes below:


  • Fixed an issue where weekly bounties were resetting on Sundays instead of the weekly reset on Tuesdays
  • Fixed an issue where the Triumph “The Best Offense,” which awards Oxygen SR3, wasn't counting the correct number of Orbs of Light generated in strike activities
  • Updated Season 6 information page to properly show Power Surge bounty requirements


  • Fixed an issue where the pursuits for Malfeasance and Breakneck were not progressing as expected in Gambit and Gambit Prime
  • Fixed an issue where various Gambit quests and Bounties were not progressing properly
  • Fixed an issue where Gambit activities may mistakenly report that players’ motes are lost when they defeat an enemy invader
  • Fixed an issue where the “Well Well Well” Medal in Gambit activities would not have a name when it appeared on screen
  • Removed Taken Hobgoblin Primeval from Gambit Prime to prevent an issue where early despawning would cause matches to not end correctly
  • Fixed an issue where Blockers were not spawning on Kell’s Grave and Cathedral of Scars
  • Fixed an issue where Taken Ogres were spawning in the wrong location and getting stuck
  • Fixed an issue where the “Deceived Likeness of Nokris” boss was taking more damage than intended in Gambit Prime
  • Fixed an issue where the “Umbral Strike” perk on the Sentry set would sometimes not properly increase damage against Taken enemies


Weekly Gambit Prime bounty completions now unlock Helmet drops for all roles in lower Tiers of Reckoning
  • For example: Completing two Reaper weekly bounties will allow Helmets for Collector, Sentry and Invader to drop from Reckoning Tier 1 encounters
  • Completing three Reaper weekly bounties will allow Helmets for Collector, Sentry, and Invader to drop from Reckoning Tier 2 encounters
  • Tier 3 Helmets for all Roles still require a Weekly Gambit Prime bounty completion in Tier 3
Due to an error on our part, Prism will be absent from the Reckoning modifier rotation temporarily. We will be restoring Prism and removing Glass from the rotation in the next update


  • Fixed an issue where having One Thousand Voices in your loadout increased PvE damage for other weapons and abilities
Hotfix is available now.
