Destiny 2 The Witch Queen

Bungie has a fair number of balance changes coming to Destiny 2 in Season 17, including some needed buffs to Glaives. Before that, it’s released hotfix 4.0.1.1 and nerfed Renewal Grasps. The Hunter Exotic will now increase the base cooldown for Duskfield Grenades from 62 seconds to 152 seconds. Enemy players within the grenade’s area of effect also now suffer 20 percent reduced damage instead of 50 percent (which is unchanged for PvE).

The Titan Void Aspect “Offensive Bulwark” now provides 60 percent bonus grenade energy regen in PvP. The base cooldown of Titan Barricade with “Bastion” is also now 82 seconds instead of 523 seconds. Skip Grenades have also had their impact damage reduced from 8 to 4 while the tracking strength decreases after one second (falling to 50 percent strength after three seconds).

Axion Bolt’s base cooldown is now 152 seconds instead of 91 seconds while Whisper of Chains will provide 15 percent (down from 25 percent) bonus damage resistance against players when standing near a Stasis crystal. The latter remains unchanged for PvE. Check out the full hotfix notes below for more details.
