Destiny 2 188.8.131.52 Patch Notes
TRIALS OF OSIRIS
- Match wins in Trials of Osiris now have a high chance to drop a non-Adept Trials weapon.
- Fixed an issue where Shaxx’s Competitive Ascendant Rank emblem was not updated to the new emblem in Season of the Witch.
- Added a new armor set as ritual rewards. At the end of any Vanguard, Crucible, or Gambit ritual playlist activity, players have a chance to earn a piece of this new set.
- Fixed an issue where Director-level ritual challenges were not distributing Exotic engrams.
- Fixed an issue where some players could not easily enter the Hive portal in the Season of the Witch wing of the H.E.L.M.

- Fixed an issue where players were not able to reach Archie, due to lasers and a non-functioning teleporter.
- The Seasonal sub menu in the Quests tab is now using the appropriate Seasonal icon.
- Stacks of transmat effects do not split into individual items in player inventories now. Instead, they convert to one, for players who have not previously logged into the game after Season of the Witch launched.
