Destiny 2: X没r and Trials (Jan 14 – Jan 18)

馃挔 This weekend you can find X没r hanging out at the Winding Cove on the EDZ and Trials is on a short break while Iron Banner is live. Check out the article below for a more detailed look at X没r’s Inventory, Trials, and more!

X脹R, AGENT OF THE NINE

A peddler of strange curios, X没r’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 change every time Xur arrives.)

Departs: Tuesday, Jan 18 @ 9AM PST

ARTIFACT MODS UPDATE

Bungie is making a few changes that will bring back some popular anti-Champion mods while also making some tweaks to the way Masterwork armor works. Here is a rundown from the team on what players can look forward to in Season 16:  

  • Players will no longer be limited to the number of Artifact mods they can unlock. This means that players could feasibly unlock all 25 Artifact mods by the end of the Season!
  • For each unlock after the 12th, increased XP will be required for the next Artifact mod unlock. You can still reset your Artifact and make your picks again. 
  • Bungie is bringing back a few perennial favorite anti-Champion mods, including Anti-Barrier Scout Rifles and Bows, and have done some work to make disrupting an Overload champion (which can be done this Season with Auto-Rifles and SMGs) more reliable than in previous Seasons.
  • Bungie will be highlighting the new Glaive weapon archetype coming in The Witch Queen through a variety of Artifact mods (including an option to make your Glaive the solution to Unstoppable Champions) and have a few new Artifact mods that will enhance some of the new weapon perks. 
  • To take a little bit of pressure off your vault space, they are also making some adjustments to the way Masterwork armors work. Starting with the launch of The Witch Queen, you can change the energy type of a fully-Masterworked piece of armor for a much-reduced cost. A fully Masterworked piece of Legendary armor can be changed to another energy type for the cost of 10,000 Glimmer and one Upgrade Module, while a fully Masterworked piece of Exotic armor can be changed to another energy type for the cost of 20,000 Glimmer and one Upgrade Module. The costs for changing a piece of armor鈥檚 energy type before it is fully Masterworked remain unchanged. 
  • Closing out, they are also making a change to the way Guardians create Orbs of Power with weapons. Elements of the new weapon crafting system will encourage you to use many different weapons and ask you to burn hard-earned Masterwork materials on a weapon that you may only be using for a few hours, just to generate Orbs. That 鈥 seemed like a tall order. This, combined with our desire to act on consistent feedback that players want to be able to generate Orbs of Power with Exotic weapons that do not yet have catalysts, led us to the implementation we鈥檒l be using in The Witch Queen and beyond. Orb generation on weapon multikills will no longer be a function of a weapon鈥檚 Masterwork status but will instead be provided by a suite of armor mods, which are unlocked automatically for all players and which plug into the Helmet Armor Mod socket. Each such mod will apply the Orb-generation effect to all weapons you have equipped of a particular damage type, so a single mod will cover multiple weapons in your arsenal if they share a damage type (this also applies to a weapon that changes damage types, like Hard Light, or a Kinetic weapon with Osmosis). They will continue to create exciting Exotic catalysts over the next few Seasons, but in the meantime, you will be able to generate orbs with Cloudstrike, Thorn, Thunderlord, Tarrabah, and any other weapon in the game.

30TH ANNIVERSARY CONTENT

“30th Anniversary content (both free and paid) will not be placed in the Destiny Content Vault with the launch of The Witch Queen. Bungie will have another update about this later this year but expect to enjoy The Xur-led adventures through 2022.”

Colorblind Modes

Bungie is currently investigating issues with colors becoming harder to distinguish across multiple colorblind modes after 3.4.0.2. 

Steam Negative Silver Balances

The issue resulting in players on Steam being incorrectly shown large negative Silver balances and negative Silver purchase histories has been resolved. Players who encountered this issue should log out and back in to see their Silver balances correctly updated. 

Hotfix 3.4.0.2 Resolved Issues

This week Hotfix 3.4.0.2 was released to the world. This hotfix resolved several issues including:  

  • The Xenology quest from Xur can now be recovered if deleted. 
  • Challenger鈥檚 Proving V now successfully unlocks after players complete Challenger鈥檚 Proving IV. 

Twitch Extension Resolved Issues

With the release of Hotfix 3.4.0.2 Bungie has additionally resolved the following issues with the Destiny 2 Twitch Extension bounties: 

  • The Dreissigste emblem now appears in Collections. 
  • The Watcher鈥檚 Shade shader will now be granted upon completion of the Gift Sub Bounty. 

Players who completed the Gift Sub Bounty after the launch of the 30th Anniversary Pack but did not receive the Watcher鈥檚 Shade shader will be able to acquire the shader from Amanda Holliday in a future update.
