      • Increased the grace time for the instant reload effect of Thin the Herd from 5 to 6s.

      • Increased damage in PvE by 20% to compensate.

      • Cranial Spike no longer buffs damage vs players; instead, it grants increased reload, aim assist, and range per stack. 
      • It still grants additional damage vs. PvE combatants. 
    • Upon reaching max stacks of Cranial Spike, the Catalyst will now increase hip-fire RPM by 50 (i.e., it will fire at 180 RPM), but will deal reduced damage per bullet (20% decrease).

      • PvP remains at 10 seconds.

    • Takes less hits to fully charge Void Leech. 
    • Kills against debuffed targets instantly charge Void Leech. 
    • Void Leech is also instantly charged when your character is affected by Void debuffs.
      • Does not work if hitting yourself with your own Suppressor grenade. 
    • Fixed an issue where Umbral Sustenance was activating with non-Void overshields. 

ABILITIES 

  • Arc Subclasses 
    • Reworked to fit the Subclass 3.0 system. There are too many individual systemic changes to list here, but the Arc subclasses now use the Aspect and Fragment system used by Stasis, Void, and Solar. 
    • Standardized a set of buffs and debuffs aligned to the Arc damage type:
      • Amplified – Your movement speed and weapon handling are greatly increased. After sprinting for a short time, you enter Speed Booster, further increasing your sprint speed and granting damage resistance against PvE combatants.
        • By default, rapidly defeating multiple targets with Arc damage will amplify  you. Your equipped Aspects and Fragments provide additional methods to become and benefit from being amplified. 
      • Ionic Trace – A bolt of pure Arc energy that travels along the ground, seeking its creator. When picked up, Ionic Traces grant grenade, melee, and class ability energy. 
      • Blind – Combatants are disoriented and cannot fire their weapons. Enemy players’ HUD is removed and their vision is obscured. 
      • Jolted – The target is energized with destructive Arc Light. As they take additional damage while jolted, they chain lightning to nearby enemies. This chain lightning can occur multiple times while a target is jolted. 
      • Hovering over Aspects, Fragments, or abilities on the Arc subclass screen now displays a tooltip flyout detailing any relevant status effects. 
    • Some old subclass perks have been deprecated, while others have been rolled into base ability behavior, Fragments, or Aspects with some changes to behavior as a result. 
    • All classes now have access to all Arc grenades. 
  • Grenades 
    • Storm grenade
      • Total damage across the two detonations reduced from 170 (80/90) to 120 (70/50) 
      • Improved damage area consistency under certain network conditions to fix an issue where it was dealing delayed damage. 
      • Base cooldown increased from 91s to 105s. 
    • Lightning grenade
      • Damage per strike reduced from 160 to 120. 
    • Arcbolt grenade
      • Damage reduced from 105 to 85. 
      • Base cooldown reduced from 121s to 105s. 
    • Skip grenade
      • Base cooldown increased from 105s to 121s. 
    • Flashbang grenade
      • Blind duration decreased from 5 seconds to 3 seconds vs. Players. 
    • Pulse grenade
      • Base cooldown increased from 105s to 121s. 
    • Vortex grenade
      • Fixed an issue causing this to deal less damage than intended against PvE targets. 
  • Hunter 
  • Arcstrider 
    • Arc Staff
      • Now has both Whirlwind Guard block capability and Lightning Reflexes armored dodge as default behavior. 
      • Arc Staff damage vs. minor and elite combatants increased by 12.5%. 
    • New Super added: Gathering Storm
      • Hurl your Arc Staff forward, embedding it into surfaces or large targets, dealing damage to and jolting nearby targets. After a short time, a devastating lightning bolt strikes the staff, overcharging it with Arc energy. While overcharged, your staff discharges lightning at nearby foes. 
    • New jump added: Blink 
      • Arc Hunters have recovered from a not-so-brief case of amnesia causing them to forget how to Blink. 
    • Disorienting Blow 
      • Now applies a short blind to nearby targets rather than a generic disorient, and also amplifies you on hit. 
    • Combination Blow 
      • Now also recharges your class ability when you successfully defeat a target with this charged melee, in addition to increasing your charged melee damage. 
      • Base cooldown increased from 15s to 40s. 
    • Tempest Strike 
      • Increased travel distance from 18m to 22m. 
      • Added a small amount of initial tracking to help Tempest Strike land on close targets. 
      • Now jolts targets on hit. 
      • Base damage decreased from 130 to 110. 
    • Lethal Current – Reworked
      • After dodging, your next melee attack has increased range, jolts the struck target, and leaves behind a damaging aftershock.  
      • Damaging a jolted target with melee attacks also blinds them.  
      • While using Arc Staff,  your next attack strikes twice after dodging. 
    • Deprecated the Ebb and Flow subclass node perk. 
  • Nightstalker 
    • Spectral Blades 
      • Spectral Blades damage vs. minor and elite combatants increased by 33%. 
  • Titan 
    • Striker 
      • Fists of Havoc 
        • Now has Terminal Velocity’s slam bonus as default behavior. 
        • The slam’s bonus damage when activated from the air is now constant rather than variable based on your height when you activate the slam. 
        • Light attack energy cost normalized between previous top and bottom tree cost at 8% (previously 12%/5.6%). 
        • Heavy slam radius normalized between the previous top and bottom tree cost at 7 meters (previously 8m/6m). 
        • Fists of Havoc damage vs. Champion, miniboss, and boss combatants increased by 25%. Damage vs. minor and elite combatants increased by ~40%.
          • Note: Previously, Fists of Havoc relied on knockout bonus damage and trample energy refunds to consistently deal with standard combatants in PvE. We’d like this to be better able to stand on its own now to partially compensate for the increased attack energy costs. 
      • New class ability added: Thruster 
        • Activate while grounded to perform a quick, first-person lateral evade. 
      • New melee ability added: Thunderclap 
        • Hold melee while grounded to plant your feet and begin charging your fist with Arc energy. Release melee to punch forward, unleashing a large blast of force that deals additional damage the longer the melee button was held. 
      • Seismic Strike 
        • Blind duration decreased from 5 seconds to 1.6 seconds vs. players. 
        • Now while amplified, the blinding radius is increased from 7m to 10m, and the blind duration is increased to 3 seconds vs. players. 
      • Ballistic Slam 
        • Fixed an issue where the Ballistic Slam camera could sometimes cause you to dive straight down rather than at your aimed location. 
        • No longer applies Inertia Override on hit. 
      • Knockout 
        • Defeating targets with melee attacks now also amplifies you in addition to starting your health regeneration. 
        • Knockout is no longer consumed on your next melee kill. Instead, knockout lasts for a set 6 seconds, after which it needs to be reactivated by breaking a combatant shield or critically wounding a target. 
      • Deprecated the Frontal Assault melee ability, and the aftershocks and trample subclass node perks. 
    • Sentinel 
      • Sentinel Shield 
        • Sentinel Shield damage vs. minor and elite combatants increased by 12.5%. 
  • Warlock 
    • Stormcaller 
      • Stormtrance 
        • Now has Ionic Blink and Landfall as default behaviors. 
        • Landfall seeker damage reduced from 250 to 150. 
        • Note: While the seekers added to bottom tree Stormcaller in Season of the Lost were a lot of fun, they made Stormtrance more of a shutdown Super than we’re comfortable with. Given that it is also a solid roaming option and now has increased base mobility with Ionic Blink, we felt we could reduce the seekers damage. 
        • Stormtrance no longer increases its attack upkeep cost when targeting multiple enemies at once. 
        • Note: We believe that Stormtrance’s greatest strength should be clearing hordes of enemies, and the increased cost based on target count was running counter to that intended role. 
        • Stormtrance damage vs. minor and elite combatants increased by 20%. 
      • Chain Lightning
        • While amplified, Chain Lightning now creates two sets of chains, up from one, jumping between more targets. 
        • Now also jolts your primary target. 
        • Lunge range increased from 4.5m to 5.25m. 
      • Ball Lightning 
        • While amplified, Ball Lightning now detonates two additional times, for a total of three vertical damaging strikes. 
        • Increased arming shape length below the projectile by 2 meters to resolve some edge cases where targets that  the detonation area could potentially damage were not triggering the projectile to detonate. 
      • Arc Souls
        • Being or becoming amplified now also amplifies your Arc Souls, granting them a greatly increased fire rate. 
        • Damage per projectile increased from 25 to 35 vs. PvE combatants. 
        • Amplified Arc Souls projectiles per burst decreased from 6 to 5, fire rate decreased by ~10%.
          • Note: We expect to see significantly increased uptime on supercharged Arc Souls, so we wanted to provide a bit more time between bursts where players could safely engage an enemy that has an Arc Soul in PvP activities. We hope the increased PVE damage offsets this change sufficiently, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it going forward. 
      • Deprecated the Rising Storm melee ability, along with the Transcendence, Pulsewave, and Arc Web subclass node perks. 
  • Arc Aspects 
    • Hunter:
      • Flow State 
      • Tempest Strike 
      • Lethal Current 
    • Titan:
      • Touch of Thunder 
      • Juggernaut 
      • Knockout 
    • Warlock:
      • Arc Soul 
      • Lightning Surge 
      • Electrostatic Mind 
  • Arc Fragments 
    • Spark of Beacons 
    • Spark of Resistance 
    • Spark of Momentum 
    • Spark of Shock 
    • Spark of Discharge 
    • Spark of Frequency 
    • Spark of Focus 
    • Spark of Recharge 
    • Spark of Voltage 
    • Spark of Magnitude 
    • ????

  • General 
    • Blink 
      • Maximum displacement distance increased from 4.5m to 5.25m. 
      • Maximum vertical offset (how high up or down you are displaced based on your aim angle from the horizon) increased from 2m to 2.5m. 
      • Increased forgiveness of mantling to ledges after exiting Blink. 
      • Energy model reworked:
        • Previously, Blink charges recharged slowly one-by-one, and could be activated at a cadence that felt inconsistent and often left players confused as to how many charges they had available. 
        • Now, Blink has a consistent activation cost. You can carry two charges at once, and 2.2 seconds after activating your last Blink, both are immediately recharged. We’ve also added a screen wipe and sound effect when this occurs, similar to Icarus Dash, to help communicate when you’re ready to Blink again. The overall availability of Blink is similar to the previous version, but we hope it is more understandable and results in fewer instances of frustration from the energy recharge model. 
      • Note: These changes apply to Blink on all subclasses that have access to it. 
    • Blind 
      • Screen shader brightness has been significantly decreased to address photosensitivity issues from the previous fully whited-out version. 
    • Ionic Traces 
      • No longer provide Super energy on pickup. 
      • Reduced melee, grenade, and class ability energy return to compensate for expected increased uptime:
        • Base melee energy return reduced from 20% to 12.5%. 
        • Base grenade energy return reduced from 15% to 12.5%. 
        • Base class ability energy return reduced from 25% to 15%. 
    • Restoration 
      • Fixed an issue where Restoration x2 could be removed by some PvE combatants’ attacks and certain debuffs like Overload rounds. 
      • Arc-focused Exotic armor updates 
    • Crown of Tempests 
      • Conduction Tines now also activate from defeating targets with jolt damage. 
    • Getaway Artist
      • Now amplifies you in addition to granting an Arc Soul when consuming your grenade. 

PLATFORM AND SYSTEMS  

  • Fixed an issue on PlayStation platforms where the text in many areas of the game would display an extra line break. 

GENERAL 

  • Fixed an issue where text chat messages persist after being kicked out to the login screen without exiting the game. 
  • Glimmer pickups will now play dematerialization VFX when picked up. 
  • Added key binding options for vehicles which support lateral dodging functionality.
    • There is a known issue on Stadia where the title texts for these settings are not appearing as expected. The team is aware of the root cause, and a fix is expected in an upcoming hotfix. 
  • Updated tooltips for various vehicle key binding options with more relevant information.
    • Multiple key bindings for vehicles have missing or incorrect definitions. 
  • Destiny 2 now available in the Epic Games Store.

King’s Fall Raid Returns

The King makes it return on August 26, 2022.

Live: August 26 at 10 AM PDT

Access: Free-to-Play

“The Taken King rises once again. Fight Oryx in the King’s Fall raid, available for free starting on August 26. Reprised raids honor the original challenges and add a twist to their mechanics and puzzles. Don’t get too confident because you played it years ago: there’s new twists here and there… and even new secrets.”

Here is what to expect for the raid race on day one:

  • The raid will launch with Contest Mode enabled for 24 hours.
    • You will need to be at 1560 Power to be at the cap for all of the encounters.  
  • Clearing the raid with Contest Mode active is the first step to access the new Challenge Mode in the Director and the special Triumph for completing all of the challenge Triumphs for each encounter.   
  • Completing the secret Triumph, a curated list of challenges in this newly unlocked Challenge Mode, will be how a fireteam crosses the World First finish line and claims their prize. 
  • To enforce the Triumph requirements in the Challenge Mode, your team will wipe if you fail the success conditions during any encounter. 

Challenge Mode and the secret Triumph will only be available for the first 24 hours.

The first fireteam to do so will be declared the World First winners—pending a review from the Bungie team. If everything checks out, the final six members of the winning fireteam in the activity will be awarded the coveted raid belts as a monument to their achievement. 

You can find more information about Contest Mode and the requirements to play the raid here

Good Luck to all of you raiding!

GUARDIAN WELCOME PAGE

Welcome (back) to Destiny 2, Guardians! A lot has happened over the last few years in the universe.

Evil awaits around every corner, and you and your fellow Guardians are the only ones protecting humanity. 

This page is for everybody starting or returning to Destiny. You will find helpful information, links, and more to help you to start your journey as a Guardian. Here is a quick video to get you caught up on the world of Destiny:

The current Season Pass, the Dungeon Key, the Forsaken Content Pack, and the 30th Anniversary Pack are not available for free. Although if you play on the Epic Games Store, remember you can grab the 30th Anniversary Pack without a cost for a limited time.

Lightfall Annual Pass

“Prevent the apocalypse by racing Emperor Calus to Neptune and explore a totally new destination, the secret metropolis of Neomuna. This city was untouched by the Collapse, so its pristine buildings and neon-filled streets are very different from what players have experienced before. There are new places to explore and new characters to meet, like the Cloud Striders, the superhuman heroes that serve as Neptunians’ last line of defense. 

Stopping the end times won’t be an easy task. That’s why Guardians will have a new power in their hands to fight back. Strand is the second Darkness-based subclass, and it’s all about consciousness, fluidity, control over your surroundings, and manipulation of your enemies. Tap into a new (and green) spectrum of reality, pull strength from a never-before-seen power, and shape new abilities to defeat Calus and his Shadow Legion.”

LEARN MORE ABOUT LIGHTFALL

Lightfall’s stand-alone campaign will be filled with over-the-top action and expand the limits of what to expect from Destiny 2, a crucial step towards the conclusion of the Light and Darkness saga. Those looking for a challenge can turn up the difficulty with Legendary Mode. Their bravado will be noted: those who walk the hard path will find powerful gear and extra rewards.

But remember, beating the campaign is only the beginning. New activities, a new raid, new Exotics, and much, much more content await. Speaking of new Exotics: the Quicksilver Storm, a totally unique new Exotic Auto Rifle, is available as an instant unlock right now as a preorder bonus for the Lightfall + Annual Pass edition. Just visit the Cryptarch in the Tower to pick it up.
