Destiny 2: Beyond Light introduced the first darkness-based subclass in the history of the franchise. While many players have praised Bungie for the addition of Stasis, others have expressed concerns on the mechanics of Stasis in the Crucible.
The game’s latest expansion released on November 10 with plenty of new content for players to explore. A new planetary zone, storylines, and weapons are now available for players to discover.
For many, the new Stasis subclasses are the most exciting piece of content introduced for Beyond Light. The new Titan Behemoth, Warlock Shadebinder, and Hunter Revenant provide players with new abilities, Aspects, and universal Fragments that offer never-before seen levels of customization.
Although these new subclasses have been praised by the community in the context of PVE, others have criticized the balancing of Stasis in the PVP portion of Destiny 2, the Crucible.
Community frustrated with Stasis balancing
Although the new Stasis subclasses were an instant hit when freezing and exploding AI aliens, players quickly realized these abilities were another matter when facing off against other human players.
Many prominent content creators within the Destiny 2 community voiced their concerns with Stasis abilities in the Crucible just a few days after Beyond Light released.
Facebook streamer and longtime Destiny player Gothalion issued a tweet questioning how the new subclasses were allowed into the game with such poor balancing in PVP activities.
Another popular content creator, Gigz, agreed with Gothalion’s position, saying “100% agree. Blows my mind how some of these abilities perform”
Other Destiny 2 content creators echoed Gothalion’s thoughts on the topic. Popular Destiny 2 YouTuber Aztecross agreed that Stasis is not balanced properly in the Crucible, saying “Stasis is busted in PVP.”
While many players voiced their concerns with Stasis in the Crucible, others reacted with a more positive outlook, like YouTuber Mtashed, who pointed out the fact that balancing PVP and PVE can be almost impossible.
“I’d rather have crazy raids, guns, and abilities long term,” he said.
No updates on Stasis balancing
On November 12, the Bungie team confirmed via Twitter that the first weekend of Trials of Osiris in Beyond Light would be delayed until the weekend November 27.
While Bungie didn’t confirm this was due to Stasis balancing issues, many community members drew their own conclusions. Gothalion responded to the tweet, joking “Oh you guys played crucible then”, blaming the delay on the current balancing situation.
For now, it seems like players will just have to wait and see how Bungie addresses the concerns around Stasis balancing going forward.

Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer Hotfix: 126.96.36.199 update & patch notes
Bungie has released a new 188.8.131.52 hotfix update for Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer, and here are the full patch notes for it.
A new Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer Hotfix aims to improve several aspects of the game including Master Vault of Glass. Here’s everything you need to know about the new 184.108.40.206 update.
Even as we near the end of Season the Splicer, Bungie is still churning out quality updates to improve Destiny 2 as a whole. The weekly updates may have finished, but there are still Trials of Osiris rewards to earn amongst other things.
The latest Hotfix focuses on Armor improvements, the Vault of Glass Raid, and other general fixes. Ahead of new information for Destiny 2 Season 15, this new update should keep players ticking over in the meantime.
Here’s everything we know about the new Destiny 2: 220.127.116.11 update and patch notes.
- Fixed an issue where the Ludomaniacal emblem did not have appropriate acquisition steps in its details.
Vault of Glass
- Removed weapon drops from Master Vault of Glass encounter loot pools.
- Players are guaranteed to receive stat-focused armor from Master difficulty encounters.
- Master Vault of Glass loot lockouts have been separated from Normal.
- Both can now be looted independently each week.
- Drops will only be at Pinnacle Power from the first weekly clear of each encounter.
- For example, if you complete Oracles in Normal difficulty first it will award Pinnacle. If you later in that week complete Oracles on Master difficulty, it will award stat-focused armor but not at Pinnacle Power.
- Completing either encounter again after that will award Spoils of Conquest, and Masterwork Materials at Master difficulty.
ARMOR & ABILITIES
- Fixed an issue where some Stasis finishers caused a slight delay to weapon readiness relative to non-Stasis class finishers.
- Fixed an issue where Boots of the Emperor’s Agent didn’t display shaders correctly.
We’re saying general a lot, huh?
- Fixed an issue where the Ghoyster Shell could heave horrific dead pupils in certain environments.
- We are still recovering from this issue and apologize to anyone who may have nightmares.
