Destiny 2 players have been affected by a nasty bug (exploit?) recently wherein specific weapon perks were allowed to be crafted into other legendary weapons. There’s a new Destiny 2 update hotfix released this September 18 (September 17 for those in PDT), that aims to resolve this and more.
Note that this is a server-side hotfix and doesn’t require a client download/patch.
New Destiny 2 Update Hotfix for September 18 (September 17) Patch Notes:
Below is the screenshot players will see when they log into to Destiny 2., as well as the announcement by Bungie:
In the first of multiple updates, which is going live shortly, a selection of Exotic and Legendary frames and perks on crafted weapons will be temporarily disabled. Crafted weapons can still be equipped.
This includes: Osteo Striga, Revision Zero, Dead Man’s Tale, Dead Messenger, Vexcalibur, and all three Exotic class glaives. This will not affect any versions of these that exist that were not crafted.
We’re currently building a second fix focused on replacing illegitimate perks on crafted weapons.
As you can see, there is a second fix hotfix set to be released as well. Once we know more about that, we’ll let our readers know.
