Season of Plunder is off to a enjoyable however rocky begin, and there’s no higher instance of that then Destiny 2‘s heavy grenade launchers. Virtually all of them have been quickly disabled only a day into the brand new replace after a glitch was found that was making them output greater than double their regular injury. The transfer comes simply forward of the neighborhood race for the returning King’s Fall raid on Friday.
Destiny gamers like Aztecross and others began to note the glitch quickly after Season 18 went dwell. Grenade launchers have been buffed within the newest patch, however some have been doing far more injury then the ten p.c that was promised. The Unique heavy grenade launcher Anarchy and some others have been as an alternative doing 150 p.c or extra. In consequence, among the sport’s weakest legendary weapons all of the sudden turned amongst its strongest.
Right here’s Aztecross’ video breaking it down:
I’ll be sincere, I had quite a lot of enjoyable messing round with my Tarnation with chain response throughout Ketchcrash runs for precisely this purpose. Weapons I wouldn’t usually contact have been all of the sudden bringing down yellow bars in a single shot. It felt…good. However it additionally was by no means going to final. The huge injury glitch would have clearly thrown a wrench within the King’s Fall raid race scheduled for Friday, so in an effort to stop that Bungie has as an alternative disabled nearly each heavy grenade launcher within the sport till the following hotfix.
It’s a reasonably drastic measure and whereas comprehensible it nonetheless form of sucks. Usually, a single weapon or piece of substances may be disabled if one thing’s not working as meant. That’s what Bungie did yesterday with the Icefall Mantle Unique Titan gauntlets. One participant found shortly after Season 18 went dwell that they may mix it with Titans’ new Arc 3.0 thruster sprint to provoke an infinite tremendous glitch. Not surprisingly, Bungie took it offline. Now, nonetheless, it’s a whole weapon archetype that’s being put in trip. Hopefully not for too lengthy.
It’s removed from the one glitch to date this season. There have additionally been plenty of points round new actions correctly recording progress and awarding forex. In these instances, Bungie is recommending gamers wait till the timer returns them to orbit earlier than leaving and exercise. As well as, when you gained’t earn new map fragments if there isn’t room in your stock. Somewhat than go to the postmaster they’ll by no means seem within the first place. I realized that one the arduous approach.
If you wish to expertise these triumphs and travails for your self, Destiny 2 and all of its expansions are at present free for the following week on PC and console.
