Destiny 2 3.2.0 update patch notes

Bungie has some new content planned for the Destiny 2 3.2.0 update, including various balance adjustments, so here’s what will be included in the next set of patch notes before the Season of the Splicer begins.

Destiny 2’s 14th season will bring plenty of new changes for fans to enjoy when it arrives on May 11. Before that happens, Bungie will release an update patch in which they’ll make various balance adjustments.

The Season of the Splicer will bring various new buffs and nerfs, the Vault of Glass Raid and World’s First race, and a new Exotic Pistol called the Cryosthesia 77k. There are even more changes in the 3.2.0 update.

Destiny 2 3.2.0 update downtime

Background maintenance for Destiny 2’s new season is set to begin at 10 AM PT on May 10 and will continue for approximately four hours. During this time, players can still log in to the game and play.

However, Destiny 2 will briefly go offline at 9:45 AM PT on May 11 for additional maintenance, lasting until 11 AM PT. You can still download the update from 10 AM PT.

Balance adjustments

Stasis abilities will now come with colorblind support, which will make it much easier to locate Crystals and Duskfields. The Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks classes will all go through changes in the latest update.

The Hunters will get their Silence & Squall ability’s detonation radius nerfed from 12m to 8.5m. Titans will receive a buff that replenishes Shiver Strike melee energy when Glacial Quake ends. Additionally, Whisper of Torment will work more efficiently once the patch drops.

Finally, the Chaos Reach Super that Warlocks use won’t kill enemies through walls in Season of the Splicer, and the Bleak Watcher Aspect will grant two fragment slots.

Nav Mode

  • Separated Bounties from Quests in Nav Mode.
  • All Bounties now appear in Nav Mode. They can no longer be tracked as a result.
  • Category switching on keyboard and mouse can now be controlled with the scroll wheel.

Glory, Valor, and Infamy

These changes are a precursor to some larger improvements planned for Season 15 (e.g., introducing Vanguard reputation, rebalancing Infamy to bring a reset in-line with Valor, and more).

  • Glory, Valor, and Infamy reputations have had their internal systems rebuilt to a unified implementation. In-game, players should expect minimal perceived changes.
    • Unified Glory, Valor, and Infamy rank reputation tracking.
      • Before Forsaken, Glory and Valor had only Major ranks (Guardian, Brave, etc.).
      • After Forsaken, Glory and Valor gained sub-ranks (Brave I, II, III) alongside Infamy. However, all the historical tracking (Lifetime Ranks) and quest usage still used the original Major ranks.
      • Now, the sub-ranks are now referred to simply as Ranks, and all usage has been converted to use them where appropriate. (I.e., all lifetime values and quest targets have been multiplied by three.)
    • Glory playlists no longer block Valor win streaks from declining.
    • The Valor badge now appears on the Trials launch screen.
    • Infamy win streak bonus is now linear (+35 points per win).
    • Glory win streak bonus is now linear (+20 points per win).
      • Note: With the eventual update to Vanguard reputation, players should be ready to spend their Vanguard Tokens during Season of the Splicer.

  • Eververse Archive Filtering
    • Players can now easily filter the offerings in the Storefront Archive tab.
    • Per numerous community requests, we added many Exotic weapon and armor ornaments from previous Seasons to the archive tab.
  • Bright Engrams
    • Spawn FX and Shaders are now standalone items in Bright Engrams.
      • Bright Engrams can no longer decrypt into duplicates of these items.
    • A small amount of Glimmer will be awarded when decrypting Bright Engrams.

Other changes

  • Momentum Control and Team Scorched have returned and will be available as part of the weekly playlist rotation.
  • Added repeatable bounties to Shaw Han in the Cosmodrome.
  • Fixed an issue causing Vaulted gear to erroneously drop from strike-unique loot lists.
  • Added a full suite of Trace Rifle-focused armor mods to the game.

That covers everything that’s coming in the Destiny 2 3.2.0 update patch notes. Season of the Splicer will include a World’s First race with more championship belts up for grabs for the winner and will be live on May 22, so stay tuned for updates!

Competitive Destiny game could be in development with Bungie job listing

A Bungie job posting strongly points toward a new competitive game set within the Destiny universe being in development.

Destiny 2 players in Crucible

According to a job listing from July 2022, Bungie are developing an “exciting new title” in the Destiny universe with competitive elements.

Destiny 2 is currently in its 17th season and is showing no sign of slowing down, with rumors claiming a Destiny mobile game is in development and a job listing pointing towards a competitive title being in development.

Destiny devs Bungie are certainly no stranger to developing games that competitive players love, with the original Halo trilogy having a booming esports scene. Now, this job listing appears to confirm that Bungie are developing a brand-new competitive game set in the Destiny universe.

Bungie’s job posting reveals they are looking for a Senior Concept Artist to work on an “exciting new title” where the dev will need to work on “guns, characters, armors, vehicles, environments, and other seasonal art needs.”

The job posting is rather vague when describing the game, but there are a couple of bullet points that give us a strong indication.

The listing appears to confirm that it’s associated with Destiny, where the Concept Artist will need to “Continually push aesthetics of the Destiny universe.”

There’s no guarantee that it’s a competitive-focused game but it should have at least a competitive element where “Experience with and love of competitive games” is listed as a “nice-to-have skill.”

Aside from these snippets of information, what the game’s about is anyone’s guess. It’s possible that it’ll be a standalone version of the Crucible mode, but with it being a “new title” it’s unlikely.

The job listing also doesn’t clarify if this is the leaked mobile title or something completely different, but don’t expect it anytime soon if they’re still hiring senior developers.

Bungie frequently update Destiny 2 with new content for players to enjoy, including numerous DLCs, weekly exotic items that can be purchased from Xur the merchant, and Trials of Osiris rewards.

Many popular video game series like Apex Legends and Call of Duty have released mobile titles, and new rumors suggest that the Destiny 2 developers currently have plans to do the same thing.

Is Destiny getting a mobile game?

The Chinese company NetEase has previously worked on mobile titles like Diablo Immortal, and The Game Post claims that it is currently hiring staff to work on an “unannounced FPS mobile game.”

According to The Game Post, this information came from a “source with knowledge of NetEase’s development plans” and Bungie are said to be collaborating with the Chinese conglomerate for this project.

Bungie has allegedly been working on a new Destiny game for “over two years now” so they might be bringing a mobile port similar to Apex Legends mobile or the upcoming Warzone Mobile. However, it’s possible that they could be developing an entirely new IP altogether.

Is there a Destiny Mobile release date?

At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed for this mobile game. However, it’s been 5 years since Destiny 2 first arrived, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Bungie are gearing up to release a new entry. We’ll let you know once we hear anything about the release date.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this information is based on leaks, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until we get official confirmation from either company about the development of this title.
