Destiny 2: Xûr and Trials (Dec 09 – Dec 14, 2021)

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: Xûr 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 change every time Xur arrives.)

MORE PATCH NOTES 

Update 3.4.0 launched earlier this week with a ton of changes to the game, from weapons to abilities and practically everything in-between. With more than 6,000 words of patch notes, there were bound to be a few to slip through the cracks. Here are the updates with what we added to the official notes.

CRUCIBLE 

  • Fixed a map exploit on top of tree near Mill on The Dead Cliffs.  
  • Trials activity node now displays potential rewards when playing on a seven-win ticket.  
  • Seven-win passages require a manual reset before players can purchase a new passage.  
  • Fixed an issue where Crucible Rank displayed an incorrect value in the Crucible intro cinematic after reset.  
  • Combat Efficiency in the post-round now displays overall match efficiency.  
  • Respawn timer for Clash, Control, Rumble, and Iron Banner increased to 7s from 5s.  

RITUAL REPUTATIONS

  • You can now reset a reputation with unclaimed materials if there are no unique items in the current reset’s item list. 
  • The number of Seasonal resets is now listed on the Reputation Rewards section of the vendor.  
  • Fixed a bug where rank reset dialogs could appear during activities. 

BOUNTIES 

  • Fixed an issue with Kinetic calibration bounties not being available on the Gunsmith.

Exotic Armor Disables

Earlier this week, we disabled the Hunter Mechaneer’s Tricksleeves Exotic arms and the Titan Icefall Mantle Exotic arms due to issues surrounding potential exploits. 
For information on when these Exotics will be re-enabled, players are encouraged to keep an eye on the Bungie Help Twitter

30th Anniversary Streetwear Bundle

Prior to collecting and opening  Xûr’s Resplendent Reward Package containing the Streetwear Bundles for each class, players should ensure that they have space available in their inventory and Postmaster to receive multiple items.  

Players are also encouraged to visit the Postmaster after opening the bundles to ensure all items have been successfully collected. We are investigating a way for players to reacquire these bundles if they end up getting pushed out of the Postmaster. 

Forsaken Cipher Pickups

Players who owned Forsaken prior to 3.4.0. can pick up their Forsaken Ciphers from the Forsaken section of the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive in the Tower. Players should ensure that they have space in their Consumables inventory prior to acquiring their Forsaken Ciphers. 

Forsaken Ciphers can also be exchanged for Ascendant Shards at the Monument to Lost Lights if players already own all Forsaken weapons. Please keep in mind that players should only attempt to acquire the Ascendant Shards if they don’t need/want to use their Forsaken Ciphers. 

Play for free without PlayStation®Plus 

Starting today players will be able to play all multiplayer content in Destiny 2 without being a PS Plus member. This trial will run from now until December 20, 2021 and is the perfect time to try out all exciting multiplayer content Destiny 2 has to offer.
