The Destiny 2 2.0.4 update (otherwise known as the Destiny 2 1.27 update on PS4) has landed and with it comes a fix for a handful of Gambit issues, a Powerful Gear level problem, Iron Crucible bugs, and much, much more. So, without further ado, let’s get stuck into the Destiny 2 2.04/1.27 patch notes, shall we?
Destiny 2 2.0.4 Patch Notes Update (Destiny 2 1.27 Patch PS4) – Gambit Fixes
First up on the docket of a seemingly incremental but actually pretty deep new Destiny 2 update is the swathe of changes made to the game’s Gambit mode. Previously, clan engrams – often presenting fantastic rewards for completing several matches – weren’t popping. That’s now been fixed, alongside invasion portals and shield walls sometimes not spawning.
Those looking to have a good time in Gambit will also be pleased to hear matchmaking has been sped up and penalties for quitting the mode have been re-enabled.
Destiny 2 2.0.4 Patch Notes Update (Destiny 2 1.27 Patch PS4) – Powerful Gear
Probably one of the most frustrating Destiny 2 bugs comes in the form of a Strike, Adventure, or other activity promising Powerful Gear but, instead, gifting you a weapon or piece of equipment that was the same or lower than your current Power Level. Well, no longer is that the case. You’re guaranteed to get an upgrade when you see the Powerful Gear notification underneath an activity from now on.
Destiny 2 2.0.4 Patch Notes Update (Destiny 2 1.27 Patch PS4) – Locked Achievements and More
If you’ve used the Forsaken character boost to quickly get your Guardian up to level 30, you may find that in-game achievements (not to be confused with Xbox Achievements or PlayStation Trophies) simply don’t unlock for you. While the shortcut may have been beneficial, in the long run it appeared that you’re missing out on a fairly cool feature. Bungie, though, has listened and, thankfully, ironed out the issue.
Talking of ironed, the Iron Banner double rewards glitch has been removed (boo!), but some Iron Banner bounties have been reduced (yay!), making your tasks considerably easier. Bungie giveth, Bungie taketh away.
