Bungie Outlines Two Destiny 2: Forsaken Updates for October

Destiny 2: Forsaken will receive two updates this month focusing on quality of life changes and adjustments, developer Bungie wrote in its weekly blog post.

The first patch, update 2.0.4, will allow players to track up to three pursuits, hover over completed Lost Sectors to see their name, and increase scout rifle damage in PvE and against non-player enemies in Destiny 2’s Gambit multiplayer mode. Update 2.0.4 will also add Through Fire and Flood, Zenobia D, and Crooked Fang-4fr weapons to the world Legendary pool, after the community criticized the game for receiving too many duplicates of one weapon, the Edge Transit grenade launcher.

The update is scheduled to release on Oct. 16 alongside Destiny 2’s Festival of the Lost Halloween-themed event. The in-game event makes its return from the original Destiny, with Bungie promising “a costume party” and ending with “a quest to solve a murder.”

The second Destiny 2 patch, update 2.0.5, is scheduled for Oct. 30 and will increase sword and fusion rifle damage. It will also add Masterwork Cores as rewards for some Spider “Wanted” bounties and Scrappier bounties, since the scarce resource is now required to infuse weapons after the Forsaken expansion dropped last month.

Gambit will also receive a few changes with the Oct. 30 update by re-enabling quitter penalties for leaving matches, and decreasing the amount of power ammo the Sleeper Simulant can receive from four shots down to two. The spawn rates of the Ascendant Primeval Servitor will also increase, which should help players unlock the Malfeasance quest much quicker. Bungie noted that all planned features in the updates can be subject to change or tweaked.
