One of the most fun Aspects in Destiny 2 received a nerf to an unintended ability with the release of Void 3.0.

Destiny 2's latest expansion, The Witch Queen, is officially a month old. The honey period is over and both fans and developers Bungie are trying to refine the experience. 

On 22nd March, the devs pushed out a Hotfix to solve certain bugs that plague Destiny 2. Some are simply pesky, but others change gameplay substantially.

One of the latter ones involved the Child of the Old Gods Aspect, one of the new additions debuting with Void 3.0 alongside The Witch Queen. The Aspect would let players send a small Void charge after using their Rift to cause extra damage.

Depending on whether you were rolling with Empowering or Health rift the Void charge would recharge abilities or give the user part of their health back. The thing that made Child of the Gods broken is that it continuously did damage to enemies with an immunity shield. 

"While the Child will not be put on time out, it now knows better and has issued heartfelt apologies to all targets that it has damaged through immunity," Bungie wrote.

Weapons 
  • Fixed an issue where the Explosive Personality Grenade Launcher was not using the correct RPM stat for wave frames. 
    • Note that the crafting screen will still display the wrong RPM which will be fixed in a future patch. 
    • The actual weapon item will have the correct stat. 
  • Fixed an issue where The Logic ornament for The Lament appeared backwards. 
  • Fixed an issue where The Lament and Worldline Zero were not networking their attacks correctly. 
  • Fixed an issue where a faint box would be visible around the hip-fire reticle when using Osteo Striga or Forerunner. 
  • All Glaives now reach full charge after four successful projectile hits instead of six. 
Armor 
  • Fixed an issue where the previous reduction of melee recharge rate for Graviton Forfeit was erroneously applying in PvE activities. 
  • Fixed an issue where the Exotic Titan Helmet, Loreley Splendor, would consume class ability energy upon death without spawning a Sunspot(as in the case of taking enough damage to fully deplete your health while you still have any shields). 
  • Players must first acquire Vow of the Disciple raid mods before they can be applied to armor from that raid. 
  • Fixed an issue where some armor was not appearing on the Appearance Customization screen, even after it had been unlocked with Synthweave. 
  • Fixed an issue where some Rare armor sets could be infused. 
  • Fixed an issue where focusing an Umbral Engram could sometimes give the wrong armor to Warlocks. 
Abilities 
  • Boss combatants no longer take additional melee damage while frozen by Stasis. 
  • Sentinel Titan's Bastion barricade now takes 20% increased damage from player sources. 
    • This damage bonus stacks with other sources of anti-emplacement damage like the Hakke Breach Armaments origin trait or Anti-Barrier Rounds. 
  • Targets with Void invisibility active now ping the radar for 0.6 seconds every 3 seconds until invisibility ends. Normal radar visibility rules still apply (i.e., double jumping or sprinting pings the radar). 
    • Note: Now that we’ve seen feedback and data from the first weekend of Trials in Season 16, we wanted to take a few steps to address a few outliers in the Void 3.0 subclass kits. 
    • These changes are targeted specifically at PvP and don’t affect the PvE sandbox. 
  • Fixed an issue where Child of the Old Gods could damage some targets through immunity shields.

PLATFORMS 

PC 

Fixed an issue where some overlays could cause game crashes. 

  • Includes MSI Afterburner and Razor Cortex.
