Destiny 2 1.37 Update Patch Notes | Highlights

Server Maintenance Schedule

There will be some downtime today where you will not be able to play Destiny 2 as servers will undergo maintenance for Update 2.5.1.1. Here is the maintenance schedule and what you can expect throughout the day.

  • 9:00 AM PDT, maintenance will begin. Players will be removed from activities.
  • 9:45 AM PDT, Update 2.5.1.1 should begin rolling out.

Menagerie chest bug fixed

The most notable fix from the new update involves the Season of Opulence activity, Menagerie. Like any other activity you complete in Destiny 2, you open a chest and get a bunch of new gear. However, this particular chest was bugged, allowing players to open the Menagerie chest multiple times.

That isn’t the only bug that was fixed in Menagerie. Prior to the update, players would be given credit for completing a lap of the Gauntlet encounter of the Menagerie even if you die during the process. That is also no longer the case as credit for completing a portion of the Gauntlet activity will now only be given to those who do not die during the encounter.

Rebalanced clan XP rewards

The new update will also rebalance clan XP rewards. More importantly, you’ll be able to earn clan XP in a couple of new ways. Launching strikes from the Director, Black Armory forges, and Escalation Protocol will all garner you some clan XP. In the case of Escalation Protocol, you must complete Level 7 and open the chest to get the XP.
