Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted hotfix

Bungie has now revealed all the exciting new changes coming with Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted hotfix
Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted hotfix

Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted enters its fifth week, bringing a new Sever weekly quest, new seasonal challenges, and more. This week also marks the second week of Trials of Osiris this season, and Bungie is bringing back Freelance to give solo players a chance to partake in the game's more competitive version of Crucible.

While Season of the Haunted has continuously delivered excellent narrative beats, gameplay-wise, this season has had several balancing issues, not to mention game-breaking bugs. From glitched champions side arm mod to the painstakingly low drop rate of deep-sighted weapons in Derelict Leviathan, Destiny 2 players have shared their fair share of frustration on some of this season's underwhelming aspects.

Everything included in Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted hotfix

Thankfully, Bungie has been listening to fan feedback and deploying hotfix every week to tweak the game's various issues. The latest hotfix is now live and here's all the things it fixes.



  • The Last Wish:  
    • Fixed an issue where mods were not dropping. 
  • Duality:  
    • Fixed an issue where damage phase lasted for an unintended duration in the Sorrow Bearer encounter. 
    • Fixed an issue where the Sorrow Bearer encounter could auto-complete after the first bell teleport.
