Update has arrived for Destiny 2 today (October 28), and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch. Bungie has tried and tried again to make the right changes to the Telesto, and this patch continues the trend of trying to fix the Exotic fusion rifle. This patch also includes a handful of changes for Nightfalls and the Competitive playlist, including a fix for the Baboon error that would result from players quitting between rounds. Here’s everything new with Destiny 2 update

Destiny 2 Update Patch Notes


  • Nightfalls
    • Changed how Mini Screebs from the Festering Rupture modifier are networked to give a more consistent experience.
      This should prevent mini-screebs from burrowing into the ground and ending otherwise perfect Nightfall runs.
  • Competitive
    • Trials of Osiris (and other matchmade activities) should no longer trigger Baboon errors if players quit between rounds or during a hard wipe.


  • Descriptions
    • Updated the description of the “Pinnacle” Seasonal Challenge to better direct players to Pinnacle-tiered rewards


  • Telesto
    • Fixed some issues with Telesto
      • Editor’s Note: Restart the clock
    • No longer attaches to allies, will instead impact and detonate
    • Bolts can no longer be shot and destroyed
    • Reduce the bolt lifetime from 10 seconds to ~5 seconds when spawned on the environment (proximity to enemies still detonates)


  • General
    • Fixed an issue that allowed allied players to be damaged and frozen by Diamond Lance.
    • Fixed an issue where more Sentinel Shield super energy was being drained by Scorn sniper attacks than intended.

As stated above, the October 28 update for Destiny 2 is mainly focused on balancing and fixing the Telesto. There are a few other minor changes as well though, including an adjustment to Mini Screebs that could potentially end perfect Nightfall runs for some unlucky players. This update is currently rolling out across all platforms, so you should see it in your download queue soon.


The Festival of the Lost is currently live in Destiny 2. This annual Halloween event decorates the Tower with spooky decorations and adds new Halloween-themed activities and quests for players to participate in. As always, players can obtain masks of their favorite Destiny characters, but this year, there are special Haunted Lost Sectors that players need to explore in order to fill up a new lore book.

Destiny 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia. For more information regarding this update, visit the official Bungie site.
