Destiny 2 Update Matchmaking Times at Higher Skill Levels Improved

Destiny 2 Patch Steam/Bungie

A lot of lingering bugs in Destiny 2 were squashed yesterday thanks to Update The patch is mostly focused on bug fixes and general improvements, so don't expect any new content or balancing changes.

The matchmaking times at higher skill tiers in Competitive mode have been improved. In Trials of Osiris, the drop rate of Adept weapons on seven-win cards after achieving a Flawless run that week has been enhanced. A bug that prevented certain players from accessing the said game mode during the third step of the introductory quest has been resolved as well. The rest of the changes are mentioned below.



  • Fixed an issue where the Powerlifter Triumph could be completed before gilding the Glorious Seal.

Raids and Dungeons

  • Ghosts of the Deep: Fixed an issue where players could respawn outside the final encounter's arena.


  • Fixed an issue where players could not access the Commendations screen after using the Wish Wall in The Last Wish Raid.
  • Fixed an issue where players could not access the Commendations screen after finishing a Deep Dive activity.


  • Fixed an issue where the new Exotic fish Whispering Mothcarp could not be obtained.

Gameplay and Investment


  • Updated the Cenotaph Mask description to correctly state its perk behavior. The description has been updated to the following:
  • Steadily reloads a portion of your equipped Trace Rifle's magazine from reserves. Damaging a vehicle, boss, or Champion with a Trace Rifle marks them as the target. When an ally defeats the marked target, Special ammo is generated for you and Heavy ammo for your allies.
  • Fixed an issue where the rebound wave from Khepri's Horn was not dealing damage to enemies already damaged by the first wave.
  • Fixed an issue where the Couturier Longcoat ornament would show a hole underneath the right arm. If the issue persists, Warlocks are advised to contact their local Tower tailor.


  • Fixed an issue where both Sweet Business and Telesto explosions could damage enemies through walls or other geometry.
  • Fixed an issue where Hollow Denial's sound effects could trigger sensitivity episodes for players with Semicircular Canal Dehiscence (SSCD).
  • Fixed an issue where unlocking the pattern for the Bump in the Night required a Season 17 entitlement to unlock.


  • Fixed an issue where the Eververse tab would experience slowdowns in PC.
  • Fixed an issue where Red War Exotic focusing could award incorrect Exotics.




  • Fixed an issue where audio would not play during a Forsaken cinematic.
  • Fixed an issue where a few subtitles did not correspond to the audio.
