This Week at Bungie - 11/07/2019

Nov 7, 2019 - Cozmo_BNG

This week at Bungie, we relieved a heavy burden.

Today, we fixed the issue blocking the acquisition of the coveted Izanagi’s Burden, increased Power drops for pinnacle rewards, and deployed a few other improvements in Hotfix Check out the patch notes and the Player Support Report below for more details.

Iron Banner is in full swing. Take advantage of the latest changes and turn your Iron Banner bounties in for +2 pinnacle rewards before the event ends on November 12.

Last week, Hive started pouring out of the Altars of Sorrow. Guardians began to explore the new dungeon. Festival of the Lost kicked off with decorations and some hidden treats in The Tower. 
It’s a busy time in Destiny but don’t forget to take a moment and treat yourself to some crispy “one taps” in Momentum Control.

Next week, an Infamy Boost is going live for Gambit and a new raid challenge will be available for Garden of Salvation.

What’s in the Box?

Player Support has been tracking current issues and ensuring that the proper people were working on fixes. Today, some of those fixes were deployed.

This is their report.

Destiny 2 Hotfix

Earlier today, we deployed Hotfix that targets a pair of emergent issues which prevented players from opening the Mysterious Box and acquiring Izanagi’s Burden. Here are some highlights of other changes also included in the hotfix:

  • Fixed an issue causing Forge Keys to not count towards Mysterious Box (Izanagi's Burden) quest progression.
    • Players affected by this should find the corresponding objective marked correctly after logging in.
  • Fixed an issue where the Obsidian Crystal would not give quest progression.
    • Players affected by this will need to reacquire a Black Armory Rare bounty and then complete and claim it to get another Obsidian Crystal.
  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused the weekly Eris Challenge to not drop a powerful reward.

In addition to this week’s hotfix, today we deployed a server-side change that allows players to receive the Black Armory Key Mold on all of their Destiny 2 characters. This resolves an issue where the Black Armory Key Mold could only be accepted by the first character that claimed it from Ada-1.

For information on upcoming maintenance windows, players should follow @BungieHelp on Twitter or monitor our support feed at For our patch notes archive, players should visit our Updates page.

REMINDER: Daily and Weekly Reset Time Change

For Guardians who observe it; Daylight Saving Time has concluded for 2019. This means that until March 2020, daily and weekly resets will now occur at 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time.

Players in regions that do not recognize Daylight Saving Time will continue to experience resets at 1700 UTC.

For more information about daily and weekly resets, players should visit our Destiny 2 Ritual Reset Guide.

We witnessed some heroics this week when a brave Guardian reached 999 Power in an attempt to challenge the darkness consuming the Dreaming City. We congratulated them on their effort, but the curse remains.
