Destiny 2 Update Version 1.30 (PS4) Patch Notes 2.1.1.1 (PC, Xbox One)

Destiny 2 is expected to get new update version 1.30 on PS4, along with patch 2.1.1.1 PC and Xbox One. Here’s what is included in this update.

Bungie has confirmed that Black Armory will be deployed after the update Tuesday. They have preceded this update with two back-to-back server maintenance updates. The first update happened on Monday while the second update is undergoing today.

Destiny 2 received a major expansion this year with Forsaken that was released in early September. Since then, the developers have outlined a plan sharing their future support for the game.

Destiny 2 Update Version 1.30 (PS4) Patch Notes 2.1.1.1 (PC, Xbox One)

Sandbox

General
  • Chaos Reach
      • Tuned Chaos Reach’s deactivation cost so that it consistently retains Super energy from deactivating early.
          • Previously, Chaos Reach allowed Players to save Super energy when deactivating the Super early by charging a flat Super energy cost upon deactivation (~65%). This meant that in order to save Super energy, you’d have to deactivate within the first second or so of the Super’s duration.
          • With this change, Chaos Reach’s deactivation will now always save you some Super energy. Deactivating the Super is no longer a flat energy cost but, rather, now works on a curve. The intention is to reward players for skillfully timing their deactivation.
  • Fixed an issue where the overshield granted upon respawning in Crucible would not negate damage right away
  • Increased damage required to destroy Nightstalker Tethers prior to their activation
  • Fixed an issue where the Biotic Enhancements buff would apply too much of a damage multiplier when standing in a Well of Radiance
Armor/Weapons
  • Fixed an issue where Scavenger perks could be used to generate heavy ammo off of team mates who fell to self-inflicted misadventure
  • Fixed an issue where high impact scout rifles were not firing at 150 RPM
  • Fixed an issue where the impact stat bar for Fusion Rifles was not updating when upgrading a charge time masterwork for the weapon
  • Gwisin Vest
      • Fixed an issue where kills were not required to extend Super uptime
      • Fixed an issue where Super was not extended after 10 or more kills
  • Chromatic Fire
      • Fixed an issue where explosions were doing less damage than intended
  • Reduced the amount of ammo gained from the Machine Gun Scavenger perk to bring it in line with other Power weapon scavenger perks
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Black Armory weapons to sometimes roll two of the same perk
  • Duplicate perks have been replaced in each weapon’s talent grid

Crucible

General

  • Fixed an issue that caused The Mountaintop to drop above appropriate power levels for players who do not own Forsaken, making it unequipped unless pulled from collections
  • Fixed an issue that caused Valor Ranks to display different values from what their rank actually was
      • This is strictly a visual fix, ranks have worked properly since Season of the Forge began

Gambit

General
  • Fixed an issue where the wrong team would sometimes be credited for killing the Ascendant Servitor Primeval
  • Reduced the amount of ammo that Linear Fusion Rifles receive from the Power Ammo crate in Gambit to from 5 to 3 rounds
      • Sleeper Simulant still only receives 2 rounds
  • Players who die with fewer than 2 rounds of special ammo will now always respawn with 2 rounds, to help alleviate special ammo starvation
  • Fixed an issue where players would be held in a loading screen if another player was inspecting items in inventory

    • Prime Engrams will now appear more frequently for players under 550 power, and provide larger power benefits when decrypted

        • We are currently developing a fix for an upcoming patch to address players who have already destroyed all eggs prior to this update. Update 2.1.3 is tentatively planned for December 18. 2018
    • Seed of Light added to the drop table of the Blind Well Heroic

  • The “Lest Ye Be Judged” Trophy/Achievement can be completed by visiting Xur
  • Fixed an issue where the “Riddle Me This” Triumph was not unlocking properly
  • Fixed an issue where Amanda Holliday had an improper notification waypoint
  • Fixed an issue where Festival of the Lost armor could not be masterworked
