Hotfix 18.104.22.168 recently went live for Bungie’s Destiny 2 and it fixes quite a number of issues regarding progression for weapons in Gambit. It also ensures that having One Thousand Voices, The Last Wish raid Exotic, won’t increase PvE damage for all weapons and abilities if equipped in your loadout. Finally, the quest for the popular Destiny 1 Exotic Thorn is also live.
The handcannon will be familiar to PvP fans – it was a menace in Destiny 1 Year 1 thanks to its powerful damage over time ticks. There’s a lengthy quest for Destiny 2 Annual Pass owners to unlock it, which involves completing bounties and playing PvP. When you get Thorn, it will function somewhat differently.
Though it deals damage over time with each shot, the ticks are fairly low. However, killing an enemy drops a green orb. Collect that and the DoT ticks will be ramped up, allowing for two headshots and one bodyshot to kill a Guardian in PvP. We’ll see how this pans out balance-wise but in the meantime, check out the full hotfix notes below.
