Destiny 2 Update 2.1.3 Arrives

Published

on

A brand new update has landed for Destiny 2 and, as expected, patch 2.1.3 makes it easier to achieve that elusive 600 power level.

Here are the full patch notes:

  • Activities
    • Fixed an issue where the final boss encounter of Scourge of the Past would not end properly.
    • Fixed animation error on Awoken Corsairs so that they no longer pretend to hold invisible rifles.
    • Fixed a rare bug in Scourge of the Past where players would not receive a Phase Radiance buff when meleeing a terminal.
    • Fixed an error on Brakion’s weapon so that he can once again shoot at Guardians.
    • Players will now spawn insides the arena with the downed ship rather than reusing the previous phase’s spawn points that placed them behind the spawned encounter barrier.
  • Crucible
    • Fixed an issue where Heavy Ammo was not spawning appropriately on Convergence
  • Items & Economy
    • Players under 600 Power may now receive higher-powered rewards when completing Director Challenges.
    • Fixed an issue where weapon frames would be removed from inventory in error when completing alternate forges.
    • Fixed an issue where players were not rewarded properly when completing a forge activity that was joined in progress.
    • Players may now access forge bounties before completing a forge activity.
    • Fixing an issue where players were not properly granted the Scourge of the Past Emblem or Triumph for completing the activity within the first 24 hours.
    • Fixed an issue where submachine guns awarded by research weapon frames were not dropping with the appropriate perks.
    • Completing and claiming the Dreaming City Triumph “Ascendant Paragon” will always properly grant the Secret Victories Emblem and its Transcendent variant. Players who already claimed this record will have the variant automatically unlocked on reaching orbit.
    • Removed Season 4 shader Crucible Solemnity as a requirement for the “Forged in Fire” Collections Badge.
    • Fixed an issue where players weren’t properly being granted Harbinger’s Echo if they destroyed eggs across multiple characters. For affected players, the Sparrow will appear in inventory and be unlocked in Collections upon reaching orbit.
    • Removed Annual Pass requirement for claiming the “Curator of the Black Armory” Triumph.
  • Misc
    • Fixed an issue where the “Envoy While it Lasts” bounty did not display properly for players using Spanish, Russian, or French languages.
    • Fixed an issue where Season of the Forge shaders were not dismantling quickly.
  • Sandbox
    • Pressing reload while charging a fusion rifle will initiate a reload. Previously, pressing reload while charging a fusion rifle did nothing.
    • Fixed an issue where SUROS Machine Guns (Avalanche) had more recoil than intended.

G2 Esports CEO On Unpaid Leave Following Sharing of Video with Andrew Tate

G2 Esports

G2 Esports CEO Carlos Rodriguez has agreed to take eight weeks of unpaid leave from the company following the sharing of a video on Twitter of himself partying with controversial creator Andrew Tate, who has been banned on platforms such as YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook for violations of terms of services, including instances of hate speech and misogyny.

Rodriguez accompanied the 8-second video that featured Tate and himself with: “Yesterday we celebrated G2’s world championship.” The video prompted immediate backlash which has marred G2 Esports’ 2022 League of Legends European Championship spring season and summer season successes.

Rodriguez fired back at the criticism the video received: “Nobody will ever be able to police my friendships. I draw my line here. I party with whoever the fuck I want.”

G2 Esports issued the following on Sunday: “Last night we failed you. The actions of our CEO spoke a language in stark contrast with the value and the culture G2 lives by and strives for. And for that we apologize.

“Since our creation, we have worked hard to build a safe and inclusive environment to enjoy esports. These are just small steps in the right direction we need to take as a company. We’ll continue to do our best each and every day to improve ourselves and the industry at large.”
