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.)

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.

FESTIVAL OF THE LOOT SEASONAL EVENT

Event Available for All Players until November 02, 2021.

Helpful Links: Official Website | Guide

Eva Levante invites you to join a Last City tradition that celebrates the light we find in the darkness. Gather round the campfire with your fellow Guardians, dig into your overflowing bags of candy, and fondly recount the tales of those who were lost but will never be forgotten.

Players may acquire the Calavera Ghost Shell directly for Silver or may acquire it with Bright Dust when it is spotlighted during the event. The Calavera Ghost Shell was made by Luis Yepez. For more awesome works from Luis, be sure to visit his page over at Luisyepez.com.

Check out the Festival of the Lost page for more details!

If you haven’t got to join in on the festivities yet, there are a ton of treats waiting on you! Eva Levante is in the Tower with bounties, a quest, and some silly masks.  

Finishing the opening quest will reward you with the Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle. The Jurassic Green also rolls with Tunnel Vision and Dragonfly, or Killing Wind and Multi-Killclip. 

Completing Festival of the Lost Triumphs will net you the new Headless Hues Shader, the Beheaded Home Emblem, and the Headless Horsepower Exotic Sparrow.

ASTRAL ALIGNMENT NEW DIFFICULTY

Info from This Week at Bungie article:

As many have you have already discovered, there is a new difficult option for Shattered Realm. You can pump up the power level requirements and tackle some truly worthy foes. The chests are dropping high-stat gear so it’s certainly worth your while.  

Next week, Astral Alignment is also getting a new difficulty. The recommended power is 1320 and there are going to be additional modifiers each day to keep things interesting. Loadouts are locked so pick your weapons wisely. Also failing to complete or wiping as a team sends you back to orbit.  

Legendary Astral Alignment Modifiers 

  • Weekly Taken rotating modifiers
    • Denial (Taken Vandals summon their shields significantly more often). 
    • Epitaph (Taken combatants generate blight geysers when defeated). 
    • Empath (Enhanced radar, take increased damage from melee). 
  • Constant modifiers
    • Champions: Overload and Unstoppable 
    • Equipment Locked 
    • Match Game 

There will be an extra bonus chest waiting for you at the end. That is three total for everyone keeping score at home. And if you haven’t secured the Catalyst for Ager’s Scepter yet, these extra chests are more likely to hold one. 


FROM THIS WEEK AT BUNGIE ARTICLE BY BUNGIE:

“Earlier this week, we released Update 3.3.1 that included Festival of the Lost and a laundry list of additional changes to the game. We missed a few changes in the patch notes and wanted to set the record straight here.  

  • Fixed an issue with Hawkmoon’s Paracausal Shot not getting bonus damage. 
    • Note that the temporary fix for this means that you will once again lose the buff if you pull out your Ghost on the final round. This will be fixed in a future update. 
  • Fixed an issue where the Firing Line perk was not giving the intended 20% damage buff. 
  • Fixed an issue with the new Monte Carlo ornament Western Front causing the weapon to have increased recoil. 
  • Fixed the Eriana’s Vow ornament Bound by Oath so that it shows the First Glance perk status correctly. 
  • Bottom-tree Dawnblade 
    • Igniting Touch 
      • Fixed an issue where all Igniting Touch detonations counted as melee damage. 

Sorry for the mix-up, we will try to make sure notes don’t fall through the cracks next time. “

BUNGIE’S PLAYER SUPPORT

Cross Save Contact Form Deprecation

As of October 13, the Cross Save contact form has been deprecated and will no longer be accepting new tickets. Bungie has updated the Cross Save Guide with more information and troubleshooting steps to help players get started with Cross Save, and they encourage players to take a look prior to setting up Cross Save to their accounts for the first time. 

Xbox and Blocked Players

When Update 3.3.1 was released, some Xbox players may have noticed an increase in the number of blocked players that were appearing for them in their Roster listings. This is a result of a fix we implemented in this release that wasn’t previously respecting Xbox privacy settings for Cross Play. 

Xbox players who are seeing an increase of blocked players who wish to remove the block must: 

  1. Navigate to Settings > General 
  2. Online Safety & Family 
  3. Privacy & Online Safety 
  4. Xbox Privacy 
  5. View Details and Customize 
  6. Communication and Multiplayer 
  7. Set “You can join cross-network play” to “Allow” 
  8. Set “You can communicate outside of Xbox with voice & text” to “Everybody” 

Additionally, players who want to take advantage of LFG features can change their “Other can communicate with voice, text, or invites” settings. 

Destiny 2 on Microsoft Store and Xbox App for PC

Earlier this week, Destiny 2 officially launched on the Microsoft Store and Xbox App for PC. Players can learn more on how to access Destiny 2 from this platform and set up Cross Save for existing characters via the Destiny 2 Microsoft Store and Xbox App for PC Guide.
