After this morning’s maintenance finished and the Tower was redecorated to honor Dead Orbit’s win, Destiny 2 update 18.104.22.168 went live to do a little bit of housekeeping now that we are nearing one month of the game being out. A number of issues have been fixed, including one that should make it easier for players that are members of a clan to level up by earning properly powered clan engrams as rewards for Trials of the Nine and Raid completions by other members of the clan.
One of the biggest changes is an adjustment to respawns in Crucible so that players won’t respawn into a dangerous situation that will likely end up with a quick death. This is an issue I have personally run into a number of times in Crucible combat, so I’m interested to see how much these bad respawns have been decreased. Here are the Destiny 2 update 22.214.171.124 patch notes.
