This Week At Bungie – 9/8/2022 > News |

Happy TWAB Day, Guardians!

This week, we added a new destination for you to search for treasures. The Expedition activity is now available on Nessus! We also want to remind you that Trials returns next weekend, and you may have noticed some new craftable weapons dropping from other activities. So with that, let’s gather around the campfire and chat, because we have some details to get into.

Weapon Crafting Upgrade

With Season 18, we’ve updated the perk pools for Dares of Eternity weapons, added a new origin trait called Hot Swap, and added the ability to shape the following weapons, provided you’ve unlocked weapon crafting in The Witch Queen :

  • BxR-55 Fighter
  • Wasteland M5
  • half truths
  • The other half
  • forgive our dust
  • Path Traveled

We are very excited to see how players craft their Dares weapons. For those looking to progress in pattern acquisition, completing the Dares of Eternity Weekly Pinnacle Challenge will provide a guaranteed Dares of Eternity Deep Sight weapon once per week to always provide pattern progress, until all patterns are unlocked. patterns. This applies to all weapons in Dares of Eternity except The Other Half. We wanted to keep the rarity of this weapon, but we also wanted to make sure that if you’re lucky and see it drop, will always feature Deepsight Resonance so you can extract the pattern with that single acquisition.

Lightfall Collector’s Edition

We’ve had quite a few announcements over the last month so we wanted to re-share Destiny 2: Lightfall Collector’s Edition because come on, have you seen it? As we prepare for the arrival of the Witness, the Lightfall Collector’s Edition will help Guardians understand the minds of our enemies and anticipate what is to come. Learn from Empress Caiatl about the psyche of Calus, study Ikora’s notes on Osiris’ vision of hope on Neptune, but most of all…get your own pouka!

The Collector’s Edition includes a digital code for Lightfall + Annual Pass, but if you just want the physical goods, we’ve got you covered with a “no game code” version of the Collector’s Edition. Each version will include a beautiful pouka statue (it’s got LED lights!), a Zavala card, and a variety of other items to get you ready for the next battle. But just watch this video and see for yourself so you can get one before they’re all gone!

Player Support Report


Another week with another report from our Player Support team. They came back with some notes on some issues that were resolved and a handful of known issues to report. SOLVED ISSUES

Next week, Hotfix will be released to the world. Below is a list of some of the issues that will be resolved by this hotfix:

  • Viewing the Vallhund exotic ornament in the Eververse menu will no longer incorrectly indicate to players who own The Sixth Coyote that they do not own the exotic armor piece.
  • Charged melee keybinding no longer works inconsistently with Titan Thunderclap melee when close to enemies.
  • Stormtrance now correctly increases its damage over time when attacking.


Support for the 120Hz output option in Crucible on PS5 is currently unavailable due to an issue. It will be available again in a future update.


As we continue to investigate various known issues, here is a list of the latest issues reported to us on our #Help forum:

We are investigating reports of players being unable to access Destiny 2 on PS4.

  • Players can sometimes spawn outside the room when fighting Warpriest.
  • Rift Lost Sector is missing Triumphs and incorrectly lists the shields present.
  • Nezarec’s Robes lose their Resonance effect when an ornament is applied to Nezarec’s Sin.
  • The Arms of Optimacy ornament has misplaced geometry around it.
  • The Dawn Chorus Exotic does not appear in the collections.
  • The Expedition activity does not show any statistics in the activity summary.
  • Xenology exotic quest does not count progress on playlist activities.
  • Repeatable Star Chart rewards can still be purchased when players have a full quest inventory.
For a full list of emerging issues in Destiny 2, players can refer to our Known Issues article. Players who notice other issues should report them to our #Help forum.

titans of the week

If you’re looking for titanic love, look no further than our MOTW picks this week! And don’t forget to tag us on social media using #MOTW, #AOTW, or #Destiny2Art, or use our Creations page so we can find you.

Bruno: If I’ve learned anything from Shaxx and his Crucible, it’s that sometimes good positioning is even more important than good weapons or even good aim. This video is a good example of how awesome the new Titan Thunderclap melee ability can be if you’re in the right place at the right time.

movie of the week: A Clap Man [Loud music and noises]

Ivan: This MOTW brings us suspense, Blade Runner vibes and some old school combat from the one and only Saint-14.

Art worth its weight in gold

hippy: Last week, Guardians from around the world came together (as we often do, so proud of the Destiny 2 community!) to show their support for a father who posted about his family’s experience with childhood cancer and the heartbreaking loss that this experience left him with. This father had a simple request: go gold. So, we did it. Globally, we saw Guardians outfitting their best shaders to help raise awareness for childhood cancer research. If you don’t have one, there are golden shaders in the Year 1 Shader Pack available in the Eververse Archive for 1,000 Glimmer! Even more, artists from all over the world have also contributed, as seen in this beautiful piece of art below.

Before you go through our Art of the Week picks, I’m going to do the “hippy” thing and push for a little more: You can directly help this cause by learning more about childhood cancer research and how you can help here.

Art of the week: A golden light at the end of the tunnel

Sam: I know there are several reasons why everyone loves the subclass they dominate, but the fact that so many Warlocks give you little buddies, I just don’t see why you would choose anything else. 😊

Craft of the Week: Bow Eel

And that’s a recap of this week’s TWAB, Guardians. We hope you are having fun traversing the seas of space and collecting all the relics you can dream of. Be sure to keep sharing your adventures on social media so we can celebrate with you!

Stay crafty, guardians!
