With the introduction of many systems like weapon crafting and Void 3.0, players have been vocal about certain changes needed to make them feel more engaging and less grindy.
Even certain weapon perks have been in need of hotfixes, like Firmly Planted. The trait gives increased accuracy, stability, and handling when firing while crouched and it seems its benefits were too good on Fusion Rifles.

- Fixed an issue in the Cosmodrome that blocked players from picking up Captured Light, blocking further progression.
TRIALS OF OSIRIS

- Glaives will now reach full charge after landing four successful projectile hits.
- Suppressing Glaive now consumes (and requires) 10% weapon energy when applying suppression with the Glaive melee.
