Destiny Update Today Is a Hotfix That Adjusts Spawning on Last Exit & Floating Gardens

March 30, 2017Written by Jason Dunning


To help fix some issues discovered after the launch of Age of Triumph earlier this week, Bungie is releasing Destiny update today at 10am PT/1pm ET. It’s a hotfix, so you’ll be prompted to download the file the next time you return to orbit. If you haven’t installed the hotfix by 2pm PT/5pm ET, you’ll be removed from activities to grab it.

Here’s what’s in the update:


  • Fixed an issue related to the networking physics of color-changing advertisements in the center staircase of Skyline and in subway cars on Last Exit
  • Added invisible physics and kill volumes to prevent players from leaving the intended playable space to gain an advantage on Bannerfall
  • Fixed an issue with Ammo options in Elimination Private Matches
  • Adjusted spawning on Last Exit and Floating Gardens to reduce dangerous spawns


  • Removed the requirements to complete normal mode of Raids before being able to access the hard mode reprisals


  • Fixed an issue with Petra granting too many Class items through rank-up packages


  • Knuckles of Eao can now be moved into the Vault and transferred between characters

On the Known Issues page for Age of Triumph, Bungie says a poor internet connection or malicious network manipulation may result in these issues on Raids:

Crota’s End

  • Immune or invisible Oversoul
  • Loss of Sword weapons acquired from Swordbearers
  • Loss of Chalice from encounter

Vault of Glass

  • Immune or invisible Templar
  • Immune Detainment Volume

Bungie also says that these issues may be circumvented by restarting the encounter by having all Fireteam members die, or by relaunching the activity from Orbit:


  • Exotic Faction class Items will not grant exclusive respawn animations if a player equips specific Artifacts. For more information, please see this Help Article.
  • The Necrochasm perk “Cursebringer” does not trigger when killing a flying enemy. Example: Shank
  • The Cannibalism node in the talent grid for Husk of the Pit does not increment when killing Ultra versions of required enemies. These enemies can be identified by a Yellow health bar.
  • We are aware of an issue where the red Miasma Gloves from Wrath of the Machine are currently missing geometry on the left shoulder piece.


  • The “Chroma” Grimoire Card is no longer available. Players may have only acquired this Grimoire Card by opening a Sterling Treasure, which is no longer available.

As a reminder, the full Destiny 2 reveal is happening today. Stay tuned for all the details.
