Weapon changes, matchmaking for Weekly Heroics and much more introduced.
The long-awaited patch 1.1.1 for Bungie’s Destiny is now going live and introduces a laundry list of fixes and changes for players.
Along with buffing pulse rifles and slightly nerfing auto rifle damage/range and hand cannon range, the patch will also ensure that heavy ammo is no longer lost when a player dies. This will also apply to Crucible play surprisingly enough and Guardians killed in PvP will also drop less special ammo. Other features include a new menu for checking one’s faction reputation instead of travelling to the Tower continuously, matchmaking for Weekly Heroic Strikes, a fix for an issue where Full Auto weapons would suddenly stop firing and much more.
The patch also introduced a glitch for the Vex Mythoclast that caused it to spawn with less ammo and reserves in PvP. This will be fixed in a later patch and in the meantime, you can check out the full patch notes here.
