Destiny 2 – All Hotfixes March 2022 | Acute Burn Modifier and More!


Attention Guardians! The latest update for Destiny 2 is here, and it’s packed with fixes and improvements to enhance your gaming experience. Get ready to dive into the action with these exciting changes.

In the Strikes category, several issues have been addressed. Players can now launch The Glassway strike directly from the Europa map without any hiccups. Additionally, no more getting stuck behind gates in The Disgraced strike, and the dialog at the end of the campaign version of Scarlet Keep won’t be cut off anymore. Oh, and no more teleporting to higher floors of the tower before the elevator reaches you in The Scarlet Keep. The Warden of Nothing strike has also received some attention, with a new launch node appearing on the Dreaming City map. And for those seeking additional Triumph points, there are new copies of the Warden of Nothing Triumphs in the Legends Triumphs category.

Nightfalls have also undergone some changes. All difficulties now feature the Acute Burn modifier, increasing player damage and enemy damage. Strike-specific modifiers have been removed, and Seasonal Modifiers are now used for Hero, Legend, and Master difficulty Nightfalls. Keep an eye out for the three Seasonal Modifiers for Season of the Risen that have been added to the game. And for those brave enough to tackle Grandmaster Nightfalls, stay tuned for future updates on the inclusion of Seasonal Modifiers.

In the Dungeons category, Shadow Thrall in The Shattered Throne will no longer grant unintended investment rewards, and the Wish-Ender quest no longer requires Tangled Shore steps.

Lastly, in the Gambit category, a Freelance: Gambit activity node has been added, providing a new way to enjoy the Gambit experience. Combatant encounter variants have been updated, and the Shriekers are taking a break for now. Get ready for more challenging encounters with increased energy shield resistance for combatants and enhanced vitality for medium Blockers. And to make your Gambit experience smoother, the bank locked waypoint now displays from afar and offscreen. Plus, the rules of Gambit are now conveniently displayed in an activity modifier.

So, Guardians, gear up and get ready to conquer the challenges that await you in Destiny 2 with this exciting update. Happy gaming!
