As usual, with the launch of a new DLC expansion comes a round of hotfix updates for Destiny. Adding and changing so many things in a game as large and complex as Destiny can cause problems that aren’t fully understood until millions of players start messing with everything. Today comes Destiny hotfix update 188.8.131.52, which specifically addresses some problems with Strikes. Check out the patch notes below, and be sure to get the download when it pops up today.
Strikes: Fixed an issue where the Abomination Heist Strike was not dropping rewards with the correct Light. Fixed an issue where the Winter’s Run Strike was not dropping rewards with the correct Light. Fixed an issue where the Echo Chamber Strike was appearing in the wrong playlist. Omnigul will now drop rewards once during a Strike and will require the Strike to be finished to drop additional rewards.
Archon’s Forge: Quarantine Patrols will now always drop an Archon’s Forge Offering upon killing the Splicer Priest in the second phase of the Activity. Archon’s Forge has a higher chance to drop Offerings upon completion.
Items: Fixed an issue where players who completed the “Beauty in Destruction” Questline did not receive a Gjallarhorn. Players can retrieve their Gjallarhorn from the Weapon Blueprint Collection on the Year 1 tab. Fixed an issue where Vanguard Reputation Boosters were not working in the SIVA Crisis Strike Playlist.
