Destiny 2 Patch Notes



  • Rolled back changes to spawn points in Control and Clash to their state before Season 21.


  • Fixed an issue where a player joining another could block progression during Mission: Invoke.
  • Fixed an issue where the Weekly Challenge completion on-screen message was missing text.
  • Fixed an issue where The Ascension VIII card would increase the rate of scorch too fast.



  • Fixed an issue where the Luminous Void shader and the Warped Rachis shader were not properly applying to certain pieces of armor.
  • Fixed an issue where Titans using the Pyrogale Guantlets could start their one-off Burning Maul Super and then switch to Synthoceps to increase its damage input.
  • Fixed an issue where the Photonic Cloak model was partially offset.


  • Fixed an issue where using a sequence of actions through Loadouts could cause weapon models, ornaments, and other characteristics to be incorrectly mixed and applied to weapons.
    • As a result of this, Loadouts have been reenabled but won’t pull weapons from a player’s vault. This issue will be addressed in a future fix.

  • Fixed an issue where Unstoppable Taken Phalanxes couldn’t be damaged on their crit spot.
