What is Connection Recovery?
Connection Recovery occurs when Destiny delays your connection interruption and attempts to recover the game state. Instead of returning to Orbit and being removed from the game, you may experience a blank screen for a short amount of time and return to the game in one of the following states:
• You'll see a brief loading screen, then load back into the match in the "Guardian Down" state.
• You'll suddenly appear in a "Guardian Down" state with no "Guardian Down" banner or death cam.• All status effects and impermanent objects (eg: Scorch Cannon) may be removed from the game world when your connection is re-established
