Destiny 2 Hotfix Simplifies Exotic Quest, Patches Telesto Blind Well Exploit
Bungie has made it a lot easier to obtain the Ace of Spades Exotic hand cannon.
Bungie released a new hotfix for Destiny 2: Forsaken recently, patching a number of issues and making some improvements to the general gameplay. The full patch notes can be seen below. Honestly, the biggest change is that the “Cayde’s Will” quest step that requires hand cannon kills on invaders in Gambit has changed.
Now players can defeat either invaders or normal enemies with hand cannons to progress the quest. Since bringing down invaders is tough (and there’s no guarantee of receiving credit for the kill), this is a welcome change for those seeking the Ace of Spades Exotic.
Other changes include Barons in Heroic Adventures granting one guaranteed Legendary each day (with subsequent kills providing Legendaries at reduced rates); shifting the Offering to the Oracle to the Pursuits tab instead of Consumables; and patching an exploit that allowed players to accelerate progress in the Blind Well by using the Exotic fusion rifle Telesto.
