Weapon drop rates for Gambit Prime and Reckoning are also being buffed.
Though Destiny 2’s Shadowkeep expansion and free-to-play version New Light have been delayed, Bungie did share some details on what’s coming in the interim. Update 188.8.131.52 is next and will bring some much needed quality of life improvements to players. More importantly, it will “adjust” The Mountaintop and Wendigo GL3 Pinnacle quests.
Whether those quests will be less grindy or not remains to be seen. Other changes include Gambit Prime and Reckoning weapon reward rates being increased. There will also be bad-luck protection active to guarantee drops after a certain number of runs. Also, Reckoning’s difficulty will be adjusted, hopefully making up for the many nerfs brought to Exotics like Phoenix Protocol.
Check out the preview of update 184.108.40.206’s patch notes below for other changes:
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will be releasing on October 1st for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Next week will see director Luke Smith releasing a State of the Game post explaining the numerous changes coming with the expansion and the reasoning behind them. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
