Update 2.0 is just around the corner, followed by Forsaken a week later. Destiny Player Support has a forecast for what to expect on the week between, where you may notice a few hiccups in the experience.
This is their report.
Hotfix 188.8.131.52 Recap
This week, to address issues blocking some players from upgrading their Solstice Armor at the Statue of Heroes, we deployed Destiny 2 Hotfix 184.108.40.206.
Upon installing this hotfix, some players on PC reported seeing odd behavior in the character screen. With the conclusion of the Hotfix 220.127.116.11 deployment we expect issues causing this behavior to be resolved, however, players who continue to be affected should try running Scan and Repair from the Blizzard launcher.
Players who encounter other issues following this hotfix should report them to the #Help forum.
Last week, we confirmed that Solstice Armor can no longer be upgraded after the conclusion of Solstice of Heroes. This week, we can confirm that players will be able to complete objectives to masterwork their Legendary Solstice Armor (Resplendent) after Solstice of Heroes ends on August 28.
This will require players to have already upgraded to their Legendary Solstice Armor (Resplendent), since the Statue of Heroes will no longer be available to upgrade the Scorched and Rekindled sets. As a reminder, these armor sets only generate elemental orbs during Solstice of Heroes.
Lastly, players should be aware that Valor ranks reset at the conclusion of Season 3. If players do not unlock their masterwork for achieving Legend in their Valor ranking by the end of Season 3, their Valor rank will reset and they will have to begin anew in Season 4.
For more details on Solstice of Heroes, players should visit our Vital Information thread.
To set the table for the launch of Forsaken on September 4, all players will be prompted to accept Destiny 2 Update 2.0.0 on August 28.
As Destiny 2 crosses into its second year, players may observe a number of issues in the week between August 28 and September 4. While we are working to document known issues for this week-long transition, players should be prepared for some general turbulence.
To set expectations, here is a sampling of issues confirmed for the week leading up to Forsaken, starting on August 28:
- Exotic weapons will lose their +5 Power mod in preparation for the Year 2 mod system, but Legendary weapons will not until September 4
- Nightfall strikes will not have scoring until September 4
- Some tooltips and item descriptions may reflect Year 2 item behavior, even if item functionality is not updated until September 4
- Some tooltips and item descriptions may reflect Year 1 item behavior until September 4, even if item functionality has already been updated for Year 2
- Year 2 weapon slots will be live for all players, which may cause some weapons in players’ inventories to go to their Postmaster
- All players should ensure their Postmasters are clear by August 28 to prevent loss of items
- Some Year 1 Power weapons which previously had an elemental attribute will become Kinetic for Year 2
- The elemental attributes for a handful of targeted Year 1 weapons will be changed and locked to a specific attribute for Year 2
- All other Year 1 Energy and Power weapons in players’ inventories will have their elemental attributes locked for Year 2
Players can expect more details about the week leading into Forsaken in next week’s Player Support Report.
This week at Bungie, we demonstrated the evolution of combat in the second year of Destiny 2.
During an action-packed livestream, we showed off the changes that all players can expect, including our new weapon slot system, random rolls, more meaningful weapon mods, and a decreased time to kill in the Crucible (crispy three taps and spicy Devils!). All Destiny 2 players can experience a preview of our sandbox updates on August 28.
One topic that we’ve seen a lot of questions about is how we’ll migrate from old weapon mods to new weapon mods. Starting on August 28, your current mods will be deprecated, and your inventory will tell you that you can safely discard them for materials and parts. On September 4, the Gunsmith’s inventory will be dedicated to new Forsaken mods.
Between now and the preload on August 28, use your Year 1 mods to lock in the elemental damage type you want for your Year 1 weapons. They will retain that damage type after the mod deprecation. On August 28, the old mod slot will go away, and you will no longer be able to insert any mods into Year 1 gear or change the elemental damage type. Some weapons will be moving to the Kinetic Slot and will not retain elemental damage regardless of what mod you had applied. The IKELOS Sniper Rifle and Shotgun will be locked to Solar. Here are the Legendary weapons that will be moving to Kinetic:
- Shepherd’s Watch
- Hawthorne’s Field-Forged Shotgun
- Alone as a God
- Perfect Paradox
- The Frigid Jackal
- Silicon Neuroma
Since the reveal of Destiny 2: Forsaken, players have asked whether or not Cayde’s Exotic Stash will be included with pre-orders directly from platform online marketplaces. We can confirm that this pre-order bonus will be available to all players who purchase through the PlayStation, Xbox, and Battle.net online stores before launch.
Additionally, shown below is what players can expect to become available to them in Year 2, based off of title ownership. For information on purchase eligibility from other retailers, players should visit the official destinythegame.com page.

Around the time Forsaken releases posts and infographics may be limited or not made throughout the end of August and during September, so I have time to update things and play around with some new content. I really appreciate your patience and support.
Have a great week! 🙂
