Share this:

Bungie has rolled out Destiny 2 hotfix 2.8.1.1, or what console gamers will see as Destiny 2 update 1.50! According to Bungie, this hotfix is for fixes for bugs that have popped up recently, and also a quick tuning pass for the Hard Light weapon.

Destiny 2 update 1.50 patch notes:

COMBAT

  • Fixed an issue that allowed Guardian’s to quickly regain ability energy by picking up Warmind Cells.

REWARDS

EXOTICS

  • Hard Light
      • Hard Light’s damage falloff now floors at 0.7x (Auto Rifles use 0.5x standard).
      • Split ricochet bonus damage between PvE and PvP.
          • PvE damage remains at 2.0x.
          • PvP damage is now 1.35x.
      • Removed a recoil adjustment that made the weapon more stable than intended.

SEASON PASS

  • Level 32 and 92 upgrades now unlocks for all three characters. Players who were previously locked out of these Season bonuses can now access them.
From Bungie’s patch preview:
Most of the adjustments coming on Wednesday are to address its usage for mouse and keyboard users since the ability to precisely aim regardless of range allows you to use the weapon at longer distances, on top of being able to use ricochets more effectively.
Although weapons like the Fighting Lion can also do what Hard Light does for indirect fire, they are generally less effective during a direct confrontation. Hard Light boasts a lot of great stats, and its impact grows with more players using it – eventually no cover is safe. As such, we’re reducing some of the aspects that allow for indirect fire and unexpected lethality in odd scenarios, while still retaining some of the bonuses to keep the flavor.
  • Hard Light

      • Hard Light’s damage falloff now floors at 0.7x (Auto Rifles use 0.5x standard).
