Crazy new Stasis exploit found in Destiny 2's Season of the Splicer

There is a ton of new content in Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer, and players have discovered an absurd Stasis exploit to take advantage of in the new Cryosthesia 77K Sidearm.

Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion brought plenty of new features for players to enjoy, including the Stasis subclass, which lets players utilize the Darkness in battle. It’s even more powerful in Season of the Splicer.

Aside from the Vault of Glass raid and a new Battle Pass, the new season also introduced a brand-new Exotic Pistol called the Cryosthesia 77k, which has an exploit that lets you boost Stasis to an absurd extent.

Landing final blows with the Cryosthesia 77k lets you enable a Charge Shot with the Liquid Cooling perk that lets you “freeze someone five different ways,” according to Destiny Twitch streamer Joverrated.

The streamer attached a clip where they used the Charge Shot to stop their enemy’s momentum before using two more abilities followed by a Super to entrap them. The opponent was unable to break out of this for a half-minute.

This all took place during a competitive Trials match, and players who cannot break out of their frozen entrapment in a short amount of time might find themselves listed as “AFK” by the game, which is no doubt frustrating.

This clip went viral and had over 100,000 views at the time of writing. The streamer was quick to add that “Stasis is fine” as a joke, and it’s clear that the Cryosthesia 77k is an extremely powerful weapon.

Players who purchase the Season of the Splicer Season Pass will automatically unlock this Exotic weapon and will be able to use this weapon perk to dominate opponents in Stasis.

You can try out this new combo for yourself with the new freezing abilities in the game. If you’re looking to Transmog in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer, you can also check our Armor Synthesis guide.

When does Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end and Season 15 start?

With Season of the Splicer well underway, we need to start looking ahead to Season 15 and what bungie may have planned for Destiny players.

Published

destiny 2 season 15

Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion continued with the launch of Season of the Splicer, but Season 15 will be here before we know it. Here’s everything we know about the next season of Destiny 2 so far.

Season of the Splicer has proven to be a bit of bumper season for Destiny 2 with some ground-breaking features added to the game. The long-awaited and promised Transmog has finally debuted in Destiny 2 with players now encouraged to hoard all the Synthstrand, Synthcord, and Synthweave to do so.

Not only that, but we also saw the return of the first-ever Destiny Raid – Vault of Glass. The season as a whole carried on from where Season of the Chosen left off by adding more Weekly Challenges and providing regular updates, and we expect all of this to continue in Season 15.

When will Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end?

Each season of Destiny is a lengthy one, typically lasting three months in total. Bungie has given no sign that Season of the Splicer is going to be any different.

With this in mind, we can expect the latest season of Destiny 2 to finish up on August 24. With many more Weekly Challenges and extra content to be drip-fed into the game, Guardians still have a lot more cool stuff to look forward to.

When will Destiny 2 Season 15 start?

As usual, unless Bungie has something gigantic planned or has severe issues with their services, the downtime will be minimal at best.

So Guardians can expect to gear up and take to the terrain on either the same day that the Season finishes – August 24 – or at a push August 25.

Crossplay finally coming to Destiny 2 Season 15

Originally announced in the February 25, 2021 Bungie blog update, crossplay will finally be landing in Destiny 2 which will be music to the ears of many.

When discussing some future content updates such as the Witch Queen being pushed back to 2022, the team talked about how Crossplay would be implemented.

Crossplay is coming to the masses in Season 15. We’ll be doing some internal rollouts and alpha tests in Season 14 to prepare for a widespread launch this fall. With Crossplay, you’ll be able to play with all your friends no matter what platform you call home.

And don’t worry, we won’t be matching console and PC players together in the Crucible unless PC players specifically invite their console friends to play with them in the PC Crucible pools.” 

Other major features in Destiny 2 Season 15

In the same blog post, the team also dropped some additional info regarding changes they hope to make happen in Season 15.

Here are the proposed Destiny 2 Season 15 changes:

  • “We will be addressing “three-peeking” in Trials and Competitive. In these modes, emotes will be disabled and players will be unable to pull out any third person weapon that doesn’t have ammo
  • We are also looking at universal adjustments to Stasis by increasing damage reduction when frozen to provide more survivability for the victim
  • We will also focus on Light subclasses and release a set of targeted buffs to our most underutilized specializations
  • We will also be looking to adjust overall ability usage rates to make sure guns and gunplay are always key to success in the Crucible
  • We will introduce our first round of Legendary Stasis Energy and Power weapons”

As we start getting closer to the Season’s official unveiling, we’ll be able to update this page with crucial and essential information.
