Overall the weekly reset infographic will feature weekly activities that reward powerful engrams/gear. For the time being I will do my best to continue posting the weekly reset and weekend summary posts however posts may not be made or could be made later than usual throughout this month while I get things updated.

Breakthrough (New Crucible Mode)
Info from TWAB post by Bungie:
Starting Tuesday, September 25, the new Crucible game mode Breakthrough will become available to all players of Destiny 2. There will also be new maps that were crafted to complement this game type. Here’s a quick overview of how Breakthrough works:
At the beginning of each round, players will fight to capture a central zone. Once the zone is captured, your team will deploy the Breaker. As players work to deploy the Breaker, the zone can be contested, resulting in an epic tug-of-war between the two teams. Once the Breaker is captured, it will be used to assault and hack the enemy team’s Vault.
If you hack the enemy team’s Vault, you win the round. If you fail to hack the enemy team’s Vault within the round time limit, you lose. If you are in the process of hacking the enemy team’s Vault when time runs out, you will enter Sudden Death until you either hack the Vault, or the enemy removes all your progress.
First team to win three rounds takes the match.
Breakthrough will first be available as the Weekly Featured Playlist for the week of September 25. Then, it will be added to the Competitive playlist starting October 2. Owners of Destiny 2: Forsaken may begin to play Breakthrough in Private Matches on September 25 as well.
As for maps, here are some sneak peeks at what every player looking to deploy some Breakers might expect next Tuesday:
For those who have yet to play since Iron Banner went live, Convergence will also be available as a Breakthrough map.
Players on PlayStation 4 will also have access to the map Gambler’s Ruin.

Player Support (from TWAB post by Bungie)
Over the last few weeks, we’ve shipped a few updates and hotfixes to address various known issues in Destiny 2. Just today, we released Hotfix 188.8.131.52 to address a few issues impacting rewards and Gambit matchmaking. Destiny Player Support is with you each step of the way, from the first report of an issue to the deployment of a fix. Read on for the status of current investigations, and more!
Destiny 2 Hotfixes 2.0.3 and 184.108.40.206
This week, we deployed Destiny 2 Hotfixes 2.0.3 and 220.127.116.11 to players. These hotfixes resolved a number of newly discovered issues that directly affected the player experience and game economy.
Some of these fixes include:
- Offering to the Oracle has been moved to the Pursuits inventory and is no longer erroneously removed when the player fast travels
- Activity reconnection has been disabled in the Gambit playlist to allow for faster backfilling of lopsided teams
- The Ace of Spades quest no longer requires defeating enemy invaders in Gambit but can now instead be completed by defeating either combatants or enemy invaders with Hand Cannons in Gambit matches
- Fixed an issue where the mission “Homecoming” weapons—Traveler’s Chosen, Origin Story, and Last Dance—could not be dismantled or transferred to the vault
To see the full patch notes for these releases, players should follow the links below:
Iron Banner Rewards
With the launch of the first Iron Banner of Season 4, we have become aware of an issue where Iron Banner rank-up packages incorrectly display “Powerful Gear” as rewards.
It is intended that Iron Banner rank-up engrams award players with gear at the same level as other generic faction rank-up rewards. Only Lord Saladin’s “Unrelenting” and “To Be Precise” bounties are actually intended to offer powerful gear. We are investigating a fix for this issue for a future update.
Tincture of Queensfoil
As players have begun to explore the depths of the Dreaming City, confusion has emerged about the expected behavior of the Ascendant buff granted by the Tincture of Queensfoil consumable. Provided below is a brief overview of this buff’s behavior:
- The Ascendant buff provided by the Tincture of Queensfoil is removed after players return to orbit or launch a new activity
- If players return to orbit or launch into another activity, they must consume another Tincture of Queensfoil to reactivate the Ascendant buff
- To make sure Tincture of Queensfoil consumables are not wasted unintentionally, it is recommended that players check that they have successfully landed in their desired activity before using this consumable
Players who believe they are encountering issues with behaviors not listed above should report them to the #Help forums.
Since the launch of Destiny 2: Forsaken, we have heard player feedback regarding the aggressive drop rates of the Edge Transit Grenade Launcher. Our investigation has confirmed that this weapon is dropping more frequently than intended, and we are pursuing a fix for a future update.
For more information when it is available, please stay tuned to our Updates page.
Destiny 2: Forsaken Known Issues
In addition to the items listed above, Destiny Player Support is tracking the latest issues reported by players on the #Help forum. Provided below is a brief overview of the latest known issues in Destiny 2: Forsaken.
- Under-levelled Powerful Gear Drops: We have identified an issue causing powerful gear to sometimes drop below expected power levels, and are working to resolve this issue in a future update.
- Menu Load Times: We are investigating an issue where some players are experiencing longer-than-usual load times in menus and UI on consoles
- Cataloguer Emblem at the Postmaster: We are investigating an issue where the Cataloguer emblem always returns to the Postmaster if stored
- Weapon Perks in a Rift or Well of Radiance: We are investigating an issue where some weapon perks may not activate while players are standing in a Healing Rift or a Well of Radiance
- Nova Warp: We are investigating an issue where the Nova Warp Super may not fully activate when used
