[i]From the Destiny 2 Development Team:[/i] Over the weekend, as we monitored your progress in Destiny 2: Forsaken (and grinded ourselves), some new issues came to light that require immediate attention. In some instances, fixes to the game will require code changes, but there are some immediate server-side actions we can take to safeguard the player experience. Our bar for rapid responses like these is to address issues that impact the economy that makes Destiny 2 a game that is engaging over a longer timeline. As we take action, we will not be issuing any bans or restrictions to players who may have benefitted from the following… [b][u]Status Updates:[/u][/b] [quote][b][u]Raid Chests:[/u][/b] Players have found their way into Raid spaces and claimed gear from bonus chests. Those chests are being suppressed until we can properly isolate them to Raid activities. None of the rewards they have granted will be rescinded. [/quote] [quote][b][u]Prime Engrams:[/u][/b] An exploit was discovered this weekend where players could earn Prime Engrams at a rapid pace using the Prime Attunement buff. At this time, Prime Engrams are designed to grant small power gains over time. Acquiring large amounts of Prime Engrams in a short timeframe reduces the frequency in which you earn Prime Engrams as you continue to play the game. Some players who have used this exploit heavily may find that Prime Engrams will not appear for the next two to three weeks. As such, this will provide a very small short-term gain for those using this exploit, but have negative long-term effects for a player’s power progression. We are investigating a fix for this exploit. In the meantime, [b]we highly recommend that players do not use this exploit.[/b] Players who are earning Prime Engrams while playing through the game naturally will not be impacted by this issue in any form.[/quote] [quote][b][u]Weekly Challenge Reset:[/u][/b] Weekly Gambit, Crucible, and Heroic Story Challenges were impacted over the weekend by an unforeseen Milestone reset. Players who completed Challenges after the faulty reset on Saturday were not given powerful rewards, and will not receive a proper challenge reset on Tuesday for these activities. We are investigating the cause of this issue, and will deploy a fix at our first opportunity. Additional information may be found in our [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/Post/248331271?sort=0&page=0]#Help Known Issues thread[/url].[/quote] [quote][u][b]Gambit Suspension Issues:[/b][/u] We are currently investigating an issue where players are being suspended in error from Gambit due to disconnections. Until resolved, players may encounter 15 minute suspensions when disconnecting from Gambit matches. We are currently investigating server side changes to matchmaking for this activity to mitigate the issue. Additional information will be provided when available.[/quote] [quote][b][u]Masterwork Core Economy:[/u][/b] We have just made a server-side fix to correct an issue that was compromising the economy for Masterwork Cores. Until a permanent solution can be deployed, once players reach Legend rank in Gambit Infamy, they will only be able to acquire the Trust Handcannon once.[/quote] Thanks for your attention on this.

My friend has been having an issue with his Destiny 2 for about 5 days now. When he launches the game and is loading to character screen and after selecting a character it always says [b]"Contacting Destiny Servers"[/b] He can play Gambit & the nightfall. If he tries running a strike from the playlist he always gets the pyramidian. If he trys anything else, loading into a patrol on any planet, going to the tower or the farm, or playing crucible he gets error code Elderberry. Then is sent back to orbit. Everything else on his Xbox One works perfectly except Destiny 2. He has tried... ¬Hard reseting ¬Deleting Destiny 2 and all files for Destiny 2 and reinstalling. ¬Deleting Destiny 2, Hard reseting, then reinstalling. ¬Clearing his packet data. ¬Deleting his profile from his Xbox One, then recovering his profile. (This got him into the Tower) He continues to get Elderberry and is unable to play the only game he wants to play Destiny 2. Also he purchase all DLC's available and has never occured this or similar issues. Any suggestions would be appreciated. [spoiler]Also he made a post in the help forum and then it disappeared or was removed. I also made a post in the help forum and it was ignored so far[/spoiler]
