In the latest “This Week at Bungie,” the devs have dialed things back a little bit with Season of the Lost now available and new content added to Destiny 2.

That said, Chris “Cozmo_BNG” Shannon has given an update about the charity drive that Bungie initiated not long ago. Shannon also talked about some in-game issues that were resolved in the recent hotfix.

In-Game Issues Fixed

The Destiny 2 Hotfix went live recently, and one of the biggest features introduced is the cross-play voice chat. Not only can you play with your buddies on any platform, but you can now talk to them via in-game voice chat as well.

The recent update has also resolved some issues that plagued Destiny 2. These are:

  • The Withering Heat artifact mod will correctly describe the mod’s perks.
  • The Lucky Pants Exotic Hunter leg armor's elemental affinity will be able to be changed.
  • Shaders will be able to be applied to the Radiant Dance Machines, No Backup Plans, and Nothing Manacles Exotics and to the newest Iron Banner armor sets.
  • The Illuminus Grasps Hunter arms ornament with subclass glow will be available for Armor Synthesis.
  • Progression toward the Tracing the Stars quest will now count if players pick up Atlas Skews before they pick up the quest, or if they pick up Skews on another character.
  • The Lucidity pre-order emblem from The Witch Queen can now be reclaimed from the Collections tab.

It is worth noting that there are still some issues that need to be addressed. For instance, the error code: POTATO may affect PC users more frequently than other platforms. The reason for this is that Steam sometimes doesn’t recognize the game’s installation folder. Hopefully, this will be fixed soon.

Charity Drive Update

Bungie initiated a donation drive not long ago to help Direct Relief and Team Rubicon. This is to help these organizations get the necessary funds to aid people who are affected by natural disasters.

The Destiny 2 community has proven that they can lend a hand, especially when it comes to humanitarian aid.

That said, Bungie has raised over $200,000 in direct donations. In addition, those who have pre-ordered the Guardians for Hope T-shirt have contributed to the cause.

As a thank you, the company is going to give the Anchor Point emblem to those who have made at least $25 in direct donations.

If you are one of those who have pre-ordered the Guardians of Hope T-shirt between August 19 and September 1, you will receive the Vital Elixir emblem.

Pre-orders for the T-shirt are extended until September 30 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Expect the shirts to be shipped approximately four to six weeks after placing your order.

The emblems will be distributed via email on Thursday, September 9.

Destiny 2 is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
