Destiny 2: Gameplay Known Issues

The following are confirmed known issues that players may experience in Destiny 2. Updates to this list will occur when possible. For the most up to date list, please see the Destiny 2 Known Issues thread within the #Help forum.


  • Nessus: If players proceed to fall off of a cliff on Nessus in the Sunken Caverns area, their Ghost may be placed in an area that blocks progression of activities. Players may be required to return to orbit and relaunch the Destination.
  • Mercury: When playing Curse of Osiris meditations, players may not be able to interact with Brother Vance in the Lighthouse.
  • Mercury: Simulation Seeds may not be properly presented when players enter the Infinite Forest. While some effects will be present, players may not see a physical seed floating above the ground.
  • Mercury: Enemies may partially spawn within Infinite Forest geometry. This happens infrequently, and enemies will teleport to proper locations quickly.
  • Mercury: Players may become stuck within Infinite Forest geometry if they proceed through or around Vex Doors during the interact process.


  • Skipping Cinematics: Non-Fireteam Leaders cannot skip in-game cinematics. Fireteam Leads must manually skip the cinematic if the Fireteam desires to.

Weapon and Armor Perks

  • Planetary Torrent: When defeated by enemies in the crucible using the Vesper Radius, players may see an improper Tool of Destruction listed in the Guardian Down screen. This may be presented as "Killed by the Architects" upon defeat.
  • Solar Rampart: When defeated by enemies in the crucible using the Khepri's Horn, players may see an improper Tool of Destruction listed in the Guardian Down screen. This may be presented as "Killed by the Architects" upon defeat.
  • Fate of all Fools: Players are not properly given an audio notification when receiving bonus ammo from the Fate of all Fools perk on the Jade Rabbit Exotic Scout Rifle.
  • Scientific Method: Handling and Speed of the Tractor Cannon does not increase when inflicting damage on Spider Tanks, Goliaths, Nightmasks or the Hive Cyclops Enemies.


  • Nightfall: Fireteam members who attempt to join a Nightfall Activity in progress will not always qualify for Activity completion. We recommend that all members be within the Fireteam when initially launching the activity.
  • Signal Light Quest Step: When players receive a specific Lost Prophecy artifact from Brother Vance, players may need to return to orbit and relaunch the Mercury destination for this activity to appear.
  • Tree of Possibilities: Laser effects may sometimes not appear, or appear in the wrong location, during times of  heavy connection latency. This will result in players sometimes receiving damage from lasers that they are unable to see, or see in alternate locations.
  • Bug in the System: Players may sometimes respawn within the Infinite Forest if defeated within the final area of this adventure. Progress is not lost.
  • Adventure Ascend: If a player falls from platforms near the conclusion of this activity, way points will not adjust to redirect the player to the final area.
  • Adventure InterceptIf a player defeats the target objective prior to reaching the final area, way points will not adjust to properly direct the player to the activity completion reward chest. Players may still reach this chest by traversing the activity maze properly.
  • Infinite Adventures: When completing Infinite Adventures, players may sometimes be required to fast travel back to the Lighthouse in order to leave the Infinite Forest.
  • Infinite Adventures: Players are unable to complete Mercury challenges when Adventures are active.


  • Strikes: Nightfall Strike completions do not progression the Heroic Strikes milestone. Only Vanguard and Heroic Strike Completions will grant progression.
  • Trials of the Nine: Players who do not own Curse of Osiris will be presented with the Trials of the Nine Milestone. Players cannot launch into this playlist until owning the proper expansion entitlements.


  • Emblems: The Lore Scholar emblem will only be awarded to players who have opened the Age of Triumph Record Book within Destiny 1 prior to August 1, 2017.
  • Prison of Elders: Memorialization for the Prison of Elder will show the first time a player defeated Skolas, rather than completing a Prison of Elders activity.
  • Character: Some hair colors do not match their Destiny 1 counterpart.


  • Storage: The first item of Inventory categories cannot be played within the Vault. For example, if a player wishes to place the first Shader present within their inventory into the Vault, they will need to select an alternate sorting for the Shader to be moved from the first slot, then they may proceed to store the item within the Vault.
  • Gear Level Requirements: Players who have purchased Curse of Osiris may temporarily lose access to pre-owned gear if it is infused with an item above the character's level. Players must reach the equip requirement to use the item once more.


  • Gunsmith: The Gunsmith will sometimes offer Armor Mods that are not available to specific subclasses


  • Sentinel: If a player has swapped their Shoulder Buttons and is guarding when the Titan Sentinel Super ends, they will be temporarily suspended aiming down sights. To resolve the issue, players will need to tap their left bumper.

User Interface

  • Waypoints: Tracking a Vendor during an activity will not present a waypoint to players.
  • Infusion: When an Exotic Weapon or Armor piece is equipped, eligible exotic items under the Infusion tab will be grayed out due to Exotic equipment limits. The item may still be infused as desired.
  • Player Inspection: Destiny 2 Currencies, such as Glimmer or Bright Dust, will display as "0" when inspecting an alternate player.
  • Roster: Adding or removing a friend on Xbox Live will temporarily remove all friends from the Director Roster on Xbox One.
  • HDR Brightness Settings: Adjusting brightness within Destiny 2 does not properly change brightness when using HDR features. It is recommended that players adjust the brightness of their display in the case that the game is either too bright or too dim. We are seeking to address this issue in a future release.


  • Beyond Infinity: If a player advances through this campaign mission quickly, some audio lines may be lost.


  • Cannon Trajectory: Players may sometimes be launched in unexpected ways when using class abilities after being launched by Vex or Cabal Cannons.
