Destiny 2 servers went down today, but the good news is that it was all part of Bungie’s maintenance plan for September 2.

The team behind the hit shooter are launching a new update and hotfix today to solve some of the most annoying issues since Season 15 started.

Guardians should be able to log back into the game and start downloading the latest Destiny 2 update released by Bungie.

The patch notes for today’s changes are quite extensive, and while the development team are calling it a hotfix, it does a lot more than solves one or two issues.

The full details can be found below as part of the official Destiny 2 update today and include the following changes:



  • Astral Alignment 

    • Fixed an issue where the Ether Collection encounter could soft lock when all Ether Wisps were destroyed. 

    • Fixed an issue where objects could be removed when players left the activity while carrying them, which would soft lock the activity. 


    • Vault of Glass 

      • Fixed an issue where Atheon would sometimes summon an invisible barrier to block Guardians from entering the Vault of Glass. 



      • Fixed an issue where the “pre-order” text string for 30th Anniversary wrapped and overlapped the title in Japanese, Polish, and Russian. 

        • Other localization fixes for Japanese and Polish. Russian will be fixed in Hotfix 

      • Fixed an issue where the description of Top Tree Dawnblade mentioned “Sliding” instead of “Gliding” in German. 

      • Fixed an issue where some players could not discard Solstice key fragments. 

      • Players who may have remaining Solstice key fragments can now dismantle the entire stack from their inventory screen. 

      • Incoming and outgoing Bungie friends toasts no longer play before character selection. 

      • Fixed an issue where some Roster screens would not consistently indicate when you have blocked a player on your Bungie Friends list. 

      • Destiny 2: Bungie release trailer for 'Beyond Light' expansion



        • Fixed an issue preventing players from changing the armor energy type of Lucky Pants. 

        • Actually changed the cost of Global Reach to three energy. 

        • Fixed an issue causing the Fire and Ice artifact mod to spawn fewer Wells than intended. 

        • Fixed an issue that prevented Season 15 Iron Banner armor sets and the new Exotic armor pieces from taking shaders. 

        • Corrected the insertion cost of the Linear Fusion Rifle Targeting mod in the artifact to be 500 Glimmer like other mods. 

        • Fixed an issue causing the 2021 Solstice Eververse Hunter arms ornaments to not be visible in the list of ornaments. 

        • Fixed an issue causing the new Shards of Galanor Exotic armor ornament to improperly display colors. 

        • Fixed an issue causing Radiant Dance Machines to trigger armor mods and Stasis Fragments more often than intended. 

        • Fixed an issue causing the Fusion Rifle Scavenger artifact mod to use old perks, allowing players to gain Heavy ammo when picking up Special ammo bricks. 

        • Fixed an issue where Promethium Spur would not spawn additional combination Rifts after the first one.
