BUNGIE’S PLAYER SUPPORT

Triumphs Re-Redeems

With the launch of Update 3.2.1 players found that all previously redeemed Triumphs from Season 13 and Season 14 needed to be re-redeemed. This was the result of a fix for an issue that caused Season 14 Triumphs to incorrectly share Triumph Scores with Season 13 Triumphs.

As a result of this fix players may notice a slight decrease in their Season 13 Triumph score due to their scores being recalculated correctly.

Additionally, we are currently investigating players being unable to re-redeem the Catalyst Competitor and One Fell Strike Triumphs.
