Season of the Lost is just a few days in, and already there have been some huge developments inside Destiny 2. Savathun is now out within the open and dealing with gamers, together with Mara Sov, to save lots of the Mara’s misplaced Techeuns within the hopes of eradicating her worm as the sport begins its march in the direction of The Witch Queen. Players have additionally gotten their fingers on among the season’s new gear, and one of many latest exotics is already as a consequence of get a nerf in PvP.
Lorentz Driver is the season go’ Exotic void linear fusion rifle, and is one in every of two new exotics in Season of the Lost. The weapon’s intrinsic perk, Lagrangian Sight, marks one enemy randomly and if the participant kills that enemy with the Driver, it drops a telemetry sample for skill power whereas gathering three with out dying grants bonus harm.
It’s the marking perk on Lorentz Driver that’s already being abused in Crucible and compelled Bungie to behave. Community supervisor DMG confirmed this on Twitter, saying the monitoring perk goes to be disabled inside PvP in the meanwhile. A hotfix shall be rolled out within the close to future, although a date has not been set.
The Lorentz Driver goal marking is simply the tip of the iceberg, as a number of different points are cropping as much as kick off Season of the Lost. Another unique concern Bungie goes to deal with is the unexpectedly massive harm enhance the hunter unique Lucky Pants is offering hand cannons after its rework went stay firstly of the season.
There are different points Bungie is planning to take care of as effectively, together with sure quests and exercise trackers not progressing and Trials of the Nine weapons not dropping from the Prophecy dungeon for some gamers.
New issues like these are nothing new to Destiny 2, although, as they sometimes seem after a brand new season goes stay to the general public. It’s not shocking, both, as there’s solely a lot that in-house testing can account for, particularly in a live-service recreation like Destiny 2, being as massive as it’s and having as many lively gamers because it does. The query then turns into how shortly Bungie can reply to those points, which, if previous seasons are any indication, is more likely to be a comparatively brief turnaround for hotfix patches to be launched.
Destiny 2 is presently accessible on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
