Destiny 2 Hotfix

Next week we’re deploying Destiny 2 Hotfix to players. This hotfix is the final barrier between players and the launch of Solstice of Heroes, and all players will need to install this hotfix before they can join the celebration. Provided below is a brief timeline of this deployment.

On Tuesday, July 31, 2018:

  • 9 AM PDT: Destiny 2 Hotfix will become available to all players.
  • 9–10 AM PDT: Players will be prompted to accept Hotfix as they return to orbit after completing activities.
  • 10 AM PDT: All players who have not yet accepted Hotfix will be removed from activities and returned to the title screen to take this hotfix.

For more information on this deployment, players should see our Destiny Server and Update Statuspage. For live updates on this hotfix as it becomes available, players should follow @BungieHelp on Twitter or monitor our support feed on

Solstice of Heroes

Next Tuesday, July 31, 2018, Solstice of Heroes will kick off in Destiny 2. Before this event goes live, here are a few points of vital information:

  • Before attempting to complete a Triumph, players should make sure they have acquired it from the Statue of Heroes. Some Triumphs may need to be completed again if the Triumph is not in the player’s inventory at the time of completion.
  • For Moments of Triumph, adventures and Region Chests are tracked by the character that has completed the most of them, and they are not tracked account-wide. Players who encounter issues making progress toward these Triumphs should make sure they are playing on the character that has made the most progress toward these Triumphs.
  • Progress toward Triumphs and event rewards may be lost if players delete any characters on their account. For the best experience, it is recommended that players do not delete any characters until all desired rewards have been redeemed and Solstice of Heroes concludes on August 28, 2018.

For more information, players should visit our Solstice of Heroes blog post as well as the Moments of Triumph Guide and FAQ.
