Posted on

The next big chapter of Destiny 2 is only a few weeks away, and ahead of The Witch Queen’s release, Bungie has released a new patch. This week’s 3.4.0.2 patch is comprehensive, offering fixes across multiple areas of Destiny 2.

Some of these tweaks range from minor fine-tuning of Sparrow engine animations and adding the Dreissigste emblem to player collections, while issues surrounding the accumulation of Super energy in the Iron Banner and Moment Momentum Control PvP playlists have been fixed.

Elsewhere, the Dares of Eternity event will see the recommended Power level lowered to 1100, a datapad issue in the Presage Exotic mission has been ironed out, and several exploits in the Grasp of Avarice dungeon have been addressed.

The Forerunner Exotic sidearm has also been further tweaked, fixing several issues and restoring the Sidearm Reserves perk, which had previously been taken offline due to a possible exploit that Bungie had discovered. Icefall Mantle, which also had a potentially problematic exploit that could be taken advantage of, will no longer have its main perk activated immediately after the Glacial Guard ability deactivates on a Titan.

You can read the full patch notes below. For a more exciting Destiny 2 update, you can also check out the newest Witch Queen trailer that shows off Savathun’s spooky throne world.

Destiny Update 3.4.0.2 Notes

Crucible

  • Fixed an issue in Iron Banner and Momentum Control playlists where capturing a zone on certain maps did not reward Super energy and show “zone captured” text.
  • Iron Banner Freelance node now properly displays the longer respawn time setting.

Dares of Eternity

  • Lowered recommended Power level to 1100.
  • Fixed an issue where players could be auto launched into Dares of Eternity before acquiring a Heavy weapon.
