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.

Riot Games

Riot Games issued a statement on Wednesday saying that they  received a ransom email after hackers stole source code for League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics, with the attack also targeting its legacy anticheat platform, according to an official release.

“Needless to say, we won’t pay,” Riot said in the statement.  “While this attack disrupted our build environment and could cause issues in the future, most importantly we remain confident that no player data or player personal information was compromised.”

Riot Games continued by saying that it’s been working to assess the leak’s impact on anticheat as “any exposure of source code can increase the likelihood of new cheats emerging.” The company added that “experimental features” were also exposed, saying that “most of this content is in prototype and there’s no guarantee it will ever be released.”

Riot Games first announced the hack back on January 20th, saying it was a “social engineering attack.”
