Bungie is really keeping on top of Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer by offering players yet another hotfix with solutions to many of the game’s niggles and faults. We have the full update & patch notes for Hotfix 3.2.0.2.

All credit to Bungie as they could be sitting back and reveling in the hot launch of Season of the Splicer and letting players soak in all the new content. There’s a lot of it too with the addition of the Vex Mythoclast Catalyst, the Hung Jury Rifle, the Cryosthesia Exotic Pistol, and more.

But, fixes are always important to maintain the consistent flow of a game and prevent major, game-breaking bugs from cropping in.

Here are all of Bungie’s newest improvements in 3.2.0.2, and also, check out the Week One, Week Two, and Week Three challenges for Season of the Splicer.

Hotfix 3.2.0.2: Update & patch notes for Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer

GAMEPLAY AND INVESTMENT  

ARMOR 

  • Fixed an issue where Recovery-focused Umbral Engrams would sometimes not award armor with a sufficiently high Recovery stat. 
  • Fixed issues where some Common, Uncommon, and Rare armors would provide stat bonuses when used as ornaments as a part of Armor Synthesis. 
  • Energy Accelerant mod: 
    • No longer increases damage against players.  
    • No longer increases the base damage of Symmetry, Telesto, Black Talon, and Deathbringer. 
      • Telesto has also received another sternly worded lecture. 
  • Sundering Blast no longer causes Overload champions to exit their stun state when damaged by the explosion created by the mod. 
  • Fixed an issue where Star-Eater Scales was erroneously applying its damage bonus to weapons and grenades instead of only Supers as intended.  
    • Increased the maximum number of stacks required for the full damage bonus from four stacks to eight stacks.  
  • Fixed an issue where players could spawn too many noble seekers with Boots of the Assembler by stepping in and out of a Rift. 
    • When Warlocks wearing Boots of the Assembler are extending the duration of a Rift, class ability regeneration pauses. 
    • Design note: The reason for this change was both to prevent game crashes caused by too many rifts being placed in a single activity, and to restore some of the advantage to running Sanguine Alchemy over Boots of the Assembler. 

WEAPONS 

  • Fixed an issue where the catalyst for Cryosthesia 77K was incorrectly accruing progress from energy weapon kills. 
  • Fixed an issue where the catalyst Triumph for Cryosthesia 77K was being displayed in the wrong weapon category. 
  • Fixed an issue where Cryosthesia 77K could fire multiple freeze shots without losing the charged shot buff. 
  • Fixed an issue where existing drops of THE SWARM with Unrelenting switched to Bottomless Grief.
    • This fix only works in cases where players didn’t select the Bottomless Grief node.


ACCESSORIES 

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Vie for Glory Sparrow from taking shaders. 

POWER AND PROGRESSION 

  • Fixed an issue where the reward for completing the weekly Vendor Challenge on the Splicer Servitor did not reward Pinnacle gear as advertised. 
    • Upon completion, the weekly Vendor Challenge should now reward a Pinnacle piece of Seasonal gear. 
  • Fixed an issue where completing Presage as a weekly Activity Challenge was not rewarding Pinnacle gear.  

UI/UX  

  • Fixed an issue where the Armor Synthesis ornament creation tutorial does not show up for Titan characters when reaching the armor ornament creation step.  

GENERAL 

  • Players will no longer be able to claim the 150 Synthstrand from Ada-1 during the intro quest if their inventory is full. 
    • This will prevent players from losing the material and they will need to clear out inventory space to claim their Synthstrand.

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?

destiny 2 splicer

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.

Stay tuned at Charlie INTEL for future Destiny 2 news!
