We’re not too far into Bungie’s latest Destiny 2 chapter, Season of the Lost, and they have released a chunky Hotfix to improve it. Here are the full details of the 3.3.0.2 Hotfix for Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Season 15’s Season of the Lost is quite a monumental step forward for the game in many ways. The long-awaited The Witch Queen expansion is just around the corner, with Season of the Lost setting players up for it, and Destiny 2 finally has crossplay.

But the progress doesn’t stop there though, as Bungie is always doing its utmost to ensure that Destiny 2 is free of bugs and problems. This is why the new 3.3.0.2 Hotfix looks to improve things by addressing some lingering issues and make some quality of life changes.

The update is available now, and here is the full extent of the Destiny 2 Season of the Lost 3.3.0.2 update and patch notes.

GAMEPLAY AND INVESTMENT  

ARMOR 

  • Fixed an issue where Precious Scars was not correctly restoring player shields on matching weapon kills.
  • Fixed an issue where Prometheum Spurs would not consistently spawn combination rifts on kills while rift energy is full.
  • Fixed an issue where Dawn Chorus no longer extended burn damage.
  • The issues regarding Wormgod Caress and Radiant Dance Machines have been resolved and these armor pieces have been re-enabled in all activities.

WEAPONS 

  • Increased the effect of both the impact and detonation of Explosive Light on Rocket Launchers to now increase damage by 25%. 
  • Fixed an issue where Danger Zone was not functioning correctly on Rocket Launchers. 
  • Increase the cooldown of Shoot to Loot to four seconds.  
  • This is a temporary measure to prevent shooting a brick that can’t be picked up to trigger the auto-reload. 
  • Fixed an issue where ammo picked up by players could be quickly shot with Shoot to Loot to get additional ammo. 
  • Fixed an issue where an interaction between Hawkmoon and Hand Cannon Holster allowed for repeated Paracausal shots. 
  • Fixed an issue with Ager’s Scepter where a player’s Super wouldn’t drain while in empowered mode. 

TITLE SEAL 

  • Fixed issue where a gilding Triumph could be completed before the base title Seal was claimed. 
  • Fixed issue where the Wyvern precision kill objective wasn’t progressing as intended. 

STRIKES 

General 

  • Fixed an issue where strike streaks were not rewarded after completing a strike if the player joined a strike in-progress or if the player was pulled forward. 
  • Players should no longer be able to apply Chill Touch to themselves or allies in strikes. 
  • Players should once again not be able to reset their reputation if they have not picked up all rank reward items. 
    • A quality-of-life improvement for rank resetting is coming later in Season 15. 

Broodhold 

  • Players can no longer be stuck after encountering In’Anah for the first time. 

Hollowed Lair 

  • The Fanatic can no longer become stuck in the corner. 
  • The Spider Tank can no longer be killed early. 

Master and Legend Lost Sectors 

  • Burns, shields, and Champions listed on the tooltip for Luna Lost Sectors should once again reflect what players find in-game. 

PLATFORMS AND SYSTEMS 

  • Fixed an issue where selecting the Beyond Light Deluxe Edition upgrade from the Timeline took players to the full Deluxe Edition page instead of the upgrade page on the Steam store. 
  • Fixed an issue where Windows 7 users were unable to launch the game due to some incompatible *.dll files. 

LOCALIZATION

  • Fixed an issue with Japanese translations of a few lore entries.
  • Fixed an issue where several languages did not have a description for the Seasonal artifact.

GENERAL 

  • Fixed an issue where the Xunyou offer was not rewarding the correct items.
  • Fixed an issue where the Warlock’s Nova Warp wouldn’t Blink if Hold Sprint was active. 
  • Fixed an issue where the barriers surrounding the Scorch Cannons in the Fallen Walker public event repelled anything that came near them. 
  • Increased the score target for Iron Banner Control from 125 to 150 (matching base Control). 
  • Adjusted the Iron Banner Mercy thresholds to reduce the number of games that end shortly before they reach the score target. 

There are clearly plenty of improvements headed to Destiny 2 Season of the Lost, so it should make for a cleaner experience going forward.

Every Destiny 2 DLC and Expansion: Full list

Here’s every Destiny 2 DLC and Expansion since the game launched in 2017, from the Curse of Osiris to 2022’s The Witch Queen.

Published

on

Bungie’s live-service epic Destiny 2 has been supported for almost five years, so we have the full list of every DLC and Expansion released so far, from the Curse of Osiris to the Witch Queen.

For FPS fans looking to engage in a deep and sprawling sci-fi story, look no further than Destiny 2. First released back in 2017, Destiny 2 is now in its 16th season, with two more major Expansions still to come.

All of this new content means that older Expansions and areas are retired, so it’s difficult to keep track of all the DLC. We’re looking back through Destiny 2’s history, listing all of Destiny 2’s paid expansions in chronological order.

Curse of Osiris – December 2017

Curse of Osiris was Destiny 2’s first Expansion pack, arriving on December 5, 2017, and brought players to the planet Mercury for the first time.

This DLC Expansion included the Eater of Worlds Raid and the Infinite Forest, a procedurally generated area that allowed players to visit simulations of Mercury’s past, present, and future.

Curse of Osiris received mixed reviews and is widely considered Destiny 2’s most disappointing DLC drop.

Warmind – May 2018

Releasing on May 8, 2018, Warmind was Destiny 2’s second Expansion and the final piece of Year One content.

Warmind brought Destiny 2 players back to Mars but introduced an area that Destiny 1 players hadn’t seen before – Hellas Basin. Guardians had to contend with the awakened Hive Army and also saw the return of Warmind Rasputin from the original game.

The Warmind Expansion also introduced the Valor and Glory ranking system, as well as Escalation Protocol, where players had to defend towers from waves of Hive.

Forsaken – September 2018

Destiny 2 Year Two was kicked off by September 2018’s Forsaken, which introduced the yearly seasonal content that Bungie continues to this day.

Forsaken was arguably a turning point for Destiny 2, introducing a ton of mechanics that shaped the game going forward. It marked the arrival of the Bow, the Gambit PvPvE mode, the Last Wish Raid, Breakthrough mode, and The Shattered Throne Dungeon.

Forsaken contained three more Seasons, which you can check out below:

  • Season of the Outlaw (launch)
  • Season of the Forge (December 4, 2018)
  • Season of the Drifter (March 5, 2019)
  • Season of the Opulence (June 4, 2019)

Shadowkeep – October 2019

Continuing with the Season model, Destiny 2 introduced the Shadowkeep Expansion on October 1, 2019. Shadowkeep kicked off Year 3 and had players visit the Moon, which long-time Guardians would recognize from the original.

Although introducing the Festering Core and Scarlet Keep Strikes, Garden of Salvation Raid, and Pit of Heresy Dungeon, the most dramatic change Shadowkeep was the Armor 2.0 system. This allowed Guardians to upgrade their armor as they saw fit, removing the need to wear armor they didn’t like just for better stats.

Here are all of Destiny 2 Shadowkeep’s Seasons:

  • Season of the Undying (launch)
  • Season of Dawn (December 10, 2019)
  • Season of the Worthy (March 10, 2020)
  • Season of Arrivals (June 9, 2020)

Beyond Light – November 2020

Destiny 2’s fifth Expansion, Beyond Light, was released on November 10, 2020, and marked Year Four.

Beyond Light took Guardians to the icy Europa, Jupiter’s closest moon. This was when Destiny 2 first went free-to-play and vaulted Titan, Io, Mars, Mercury, and Leviathan to stop the game from getting too big. These locations were removed with the possibility that they’ll be revamped and added back at a later date.

Plus, Destiny 1’s fan-favorite Vault of Glass Raid was remastered and hit Destiny 2 during May’s Season of the Splicer. Here are all of Beyond Light’s Seasons:

  • Season of the Hunt (launch)
  • Season of the Chosen (February 9, 2021)
  • Season of the Splicer (May 11, 2021)
  • Season of the Lost (August 24, 2021)

Bungie 30th Anniversary Event – December 2021

Bungie celebrated their 30th Anniversary Event inside Destiny 2, offering players some Halo-inspired cosmetics as well as the Grasp of Avarice three-player Raid.

While nowhere as big as the other Expansions and seasons, it kept players tiding over while The Witch Queen was delayed until February 2022.

The Witch Queen – February 2022

February 2022’s The Witch Queen is one of the biggest Expansions Destiny 2 has received yet.

Launching with a highly-rated campaign, The Witch Queen brought the Witch Queen’s Throne World, the new Vow of Disciple Raid race, weapon crafting, and Glaive Exotics.

The Witch Queen launched with Season of the Risen, while the rest of the Expansions are still known as “Season of the [Redacted]” until they’re officially revealed.

Lightfall & The Final Shape – TBA

Destiny 2 is still to receive the Lightfall and The Final Shape Expansions, likely in 2023 and 2024. We don’t know what this DLC will entail, but Bungie revealed that “The Light and Darkness saga will come to a dramatic conclusion in Destiny 2: The Final Shape.”
