XÛR, AGENT OF THE NINE

A peddler of strange curios, Xûr’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine. (Note: Xur offers random rolls on Exotic Armor meaning the stats/numbers are different with each purchase. Legendary weapon/armor stays the rolls that it shows but changes every time Xur arrives.)

Departs: Tuesday, Oct 12 @ 10AM Pacific

DISABILITY AWARENESS

Bungie believes that everyone should be able to play their games, regardless of a barrier or disability they may have. October is Disability History Month and National Disability Employment Awareness Month in the United States, which is held annually to increase awareness and understanding of the contributions made by persons with disabilities. 

Bungie announced their newest inclusion Club, Accessibility@Bungie. Their mission is to partner with organizations within the gaming industry who are dedicated to game accessibility. This club has worked closely with several teams here at Bungie to create their Diversity and Inclusion pin series for the Bungie Store entitled “Everyone Can Play” An emblem of the same name will also be included. 

The pin and emblem feature an open door that leads out into the world, symbolizing that there are no barriers and that possibilities are endless. Throughout the month of October, 100% of profits from the pin’s sales will benefit the AbleGamers Foundation. This organization creates opportunities that enable play to combat social isolation, fosters inclusive communities, and improves the quality of life for people with disabilities. After October, profits will be collected by the Bungie Foundation to distribute to other organizations that do accessibility-related work.

  • The Tangled Shore returns to the Shattered Realm.
  • Destroy opponents in Team Scorched.
  • Rid the Taken infestation in the Lake of Shadows Nightfall.

DESTINY FORSAKEN CONTENT VAULT

Main Highlights

  • The Tangled Shore, the Forsaken campaign, and Year 4 Seasonal content will be entering the DCV in February 2022. 
  • Starting on December 7, the Forsaken campaign will be free to play until it enters the DCV. 
  • Some activities, like the Dreaming City destination and Battlegrounds, will be retained. 

Following the release of the 30th Anniversary celebration in December, Year 5 of Destiny 2 launches on February 22, 2022 with the release of The Witch Queen expansion and the Season of [REDACTED], the first of four Seasons that will come your way beginning in 2022. In addition to all that brand new content, Bungie is bringing a carefully curated selection of content out of the DCV, including a classic raid, two PVP maps from Destiny 2, and one classic PVP map from the original Destiny. Bungie isexcited to share more details on all of this in the months ahead.

Beginning on February 22, the Forsaken campaign and the Tangled Shore destination will enter the DCV (Note: The Dreaming City destination will continue to be available), along with Year 4 Seasonal content, including the Presage and Harbinger Exotic missions. Bungie understands the unique value of these definitively Destiny experiences and are investigating ways to reprise and create new exciting Exotic special missions within Destiny 2 for the future.

Vaulting this content will allow them the space to launch The Witch Queen expansion and its new Throne World destination, as well as new features like weapon crafting, the new Legendary difficulty campaign option, the new Glaive weapon archetype, plus all the additional content they have planned for the four new Seasons to come starting in February.

While most of the Year 4 Seasonal content will be vaulted, certain Year 4 content will persist in Year 5, including the Proving Grounds strike and the Battlegrounds activities. Beginning in February, the existing Battlegrounds will be combined with strikes into a new “Vanguard Operations” playlist that will be free for all players. In addition, the Warden of Nothing strike will remain in the game and will be available to all players for free. Lastly, all of Spider’s currency exchange function will be taken over by Master Rahool in the Tower when the Tangled Shore is moved into the DCV.

The Forsaken campaign will be available for free for all players from December 7, 2021 until it enters the DCV in February 2022. If you or your friends have not had a chance to live Forsaken’s epic narrative and experience the origins of Uldren Sov before he became Crow, this will be your chance. 

Beginning on December 7, the Forsaken Pack will be available for purchase and will include access to the Last Wish raid and the Shattered Throne dungeon, as well as access to all of the Forsaken Exotics. The Forsaken Pack will also include three Forsaken Ciphers that can be used to instantly unlock your choice of Forsaken Exotics (not including raid and dungeon Exotics) via the Exotic kiosk in the Tower. Everyone who previously purchased Forsaken will automatically own the new Forsaken Pack and will receive the three Forsaken Ciphers directly in their inventory. If you already have every Forsaken Exotic weapon, those Ciphers will be converted to Ascendant Shards.

Head over to the Destiny Content Vault Update article for the full write up.

DESTINY 2 UPDATE 3.3.1

Alongside Festival of the Lost, Bungie will be deploying Destiny 2 Update 3.3.1. Bungie has a collection of bug fixes and some quality of life items to deploy. Here’s a quick preview of the goods: 

Grandmaster Nightfalls 

  • Increased drop chance for an Adept Nightfall weapon from a Platinum Grandmaster Nightfall to 100%. 
    • While this will not guarantee perfect perk combinations on every drop, players may now expect to receive an Adept reward when overcoming the challenge of Grandmasters, even on the hardest of weeks.  

The Corrupted 

  • Reduced the knockback buff from the “Sedia’s Durance” activity modifier on Nightfall difficulty from +40% knockback to +20% knockback, which may help a few of you complete Grandmaster difficulty. 
  • Removed an Unstoppable Phalanx Champion from the Ransack Ogre encounter. 
    • During the Ransack Ogre encounter, an Unstoppable Phalanx Champion would spawn in the Ascendant Plane when the Ogre boss reached 50% health. 
    • That Champion was easy to miss, and you couldn’t backtrack there to defeat it once you killed the Ogre. 
    • After this Champion ruined hundreds of Platinum completion attempts, we’ve snapped it out of existence. 
    • It’s gone. 
    • Dust. 
    • Destroyed. 
    • It will never see the light of day again. 
    • That’s what it deserves. 
  • Fixed an issue that blocked completion of The Corrupted Nightfall scoring Triumph. 

Cross Play UI 

  • Updated the sign-on experience to show a single toast after character select if you have one or more pending Bungie Friend requests instead of a unique toast for every pending request. 
    • The experience when receiving a new Bungie Friend request while playing the game has not changed. 
    • Known Issue: This notification toast may appear blank for some players, but no invites are affected. This issue is already being investigated. 
  • Player search UI now has audio feedback. 
  • Fixed a bug where the text chat auto-hide setting could revert to the Season 15 default value of ”off” under various conditions. 
  • Fixed a bug where booting a fireteam member sometimes left a blank entry in the roster or fireteam UI. 
  • Fixed a bug where online roster contacts were not sorting alphabetically for friends and clanmates. 
  • Fixed a bug where blocking a player through a fireteam invite did not hide interaction options that are expected to fail when interacting with a blocked player. 

The full list of patch notes are expected to become available on Tuesday around 10 AM Pacific. Stay tuned!
