Season 17 for Destiny 2 has officially begun, and along with it is the release of Update 4.1.0. So, what does this update have in store for you?

There are so many amazing things that have been implemented in Update 4.1.0. Let’s talk about Iron Banner first. One of the notable changes is that power level advantages are now disabled in this game mode. This means that damage dealt and damage mitigation are no longer influenced by power level, making Iron Banner more accessible to new and old players alike.

For activities, the Legend and Master Lost Sector rotation has been updated to include the Nessus Lost Sector. These more difficult Lost Sectors, for those who don’t know, can be completed to gain exotic armor pieces.

The developers also made changes to weapon crafting in Destiny 2. All of the element currencies other than Neutral Elements have been removed. Furthermore, Neutral Elements have been renamed to Resonant Elements.
