Destiny 2: Hotfix Resolves Issues with Certain Exotics

Hotfix Twitter/@DestinyTheGame

Airborne effectiveness is a new stat in Destiny 2 that improves the elements of airborne gunplay. That said, some Exotic armor pieces that should provide buffs to airborne effectiveness did not work as intended. Thus, the developers launched Hotfix to resolve the issue.

The Exotic armor pieces in question are the Sealed Ahamkara Grasps, Wings of Sacred Dawn, Lion Rampant, Peacekeepers, and Peregrine Greaves. Wings of Sacred Dawn and the Peregrine Greaves deserve a special mention because these Exotics provide +50 and +20 airborne effectiveness to all weapons, respectively, when equipped.

Hotfix for Destiny 2 also fixes the issue where Hammer Strike was not receiving the intended damage bonus from Roaring Flames. For those who don’t know, Roaring Flames was buffed in a previous update, but some things were not included in the original patch notes. This particular Solar ability received the following changes as well:

  • Roaring Flames now grants a 20% bonus damage on powered melee abilities per stack.
  • Roaring Flames will grant a 10% bonus damage per stack if Synthoceps, Peregrine Greaves, Wormgod Caress or the One-Two Punch weapon perk are active.
