A new Destiny 2 hotfix has been rolled out to the game, following a decent chunk of scheduled downtime. There’s only one thing that this hotfix does, and that’s to allow non-DLC owners to earn Faction Rally and Iron Banner season 2 rewards. (Yes, that’s literally it!)
Here’s the patch notes, straight from Bungie:
Players who do not own Curse of Osiris now have the ability to earn Season 2 rewards within Faction Rallies and Iron Banner
Destiny 2 Hotfix 1/16/18

Following the weekly reset, players will now be able to choose a faction to support during the latest Faction Rally. Because of the new hotfix, all players will be able to earn season 2 reward.
