Destiny 2 Beyond Light - Shadebinder_02

The latest hotfix for Bungie’s Destiny 2 is now live with a number of quality of changes for players. Season of the Hunt’s Cryptolith Lure will now charge twice as quickly and has an increased cap, going from three to five. Other issues like players having to continuously reacquire the Lure have also been fixed.

Also, if you were annoyed by the Gunsmith constantly requiring materials from vaulted destinations, hotfix should reduce the changes of that happening. It also provides some much needed buffs to the Shadebinder, namely its Penumbral Blast melee. Range has been increased by 37 percent and the minimum distance required to cast it has been reduced by 32 percent.

Players with The Lament who could execute Heavy air strikes even without ammo should take note – this was a bug and it’s now been fixed. So keep that in mind when trying to hack Navota to death in The Disgraced Strike. Today also marks the arrival of The Dawning so we’ll see if any other changes are pushed through. You can check out the rewards offered in the seasonal event here.
