Destiny 2 noticed a small patch on Tuesday afternoon, designed to repair some long-broken Exotics and an XP bug. Bungie additionally gave an replace on the bugged “The Lie” quest, the place gamers will ultimately earn the returning Felwinter’s Lie shotgun.
To be clear, the most recent patch doesn’t repair the search. According to one of Bungie’s Community Managers, Bungie deliberate this hotfix earlier than the Felwinter’s Lie bug occurred, and the staff at Bungie continues to be engaged on a repair for the brand new quest.
Hotfix 22.214.171.124 fixes some annoying points in Destiny 2. The troublesome Wormgod Caress Titan gauntlets and Winter’s Guile Warlock gauntlets can not stack their respective buffs longer than meant — which ought to stop another weird bugs from occurring. The Grasp of the Warmind mod additionally has some adjustments, which stop it from unintentionally granting Titans their Super in underneath 10 seconds. The studio additionally mounted a small XP bug.
While these issues have been plaguing the sport for weeks, many gamers are extra inquisitive about what’s occurring with the bugged “The Lie” quest.
On May 12, gamers launched into a quest to unlock a beloved shotgun from the unique Destiny, Felwinter’s Lie. But Bungie gated the search behind 9,000,000 group public occasions. After gradual progress, the studio rapidly added a multiplier to public occasion completions, and gamers managed to finish them late Sunday night time. But after gamers accomplished a number of extra steps within the quest, they found the ultimate mission has a progress-breaking bug, and no person can load into the mission correctly.
Again, that is unrelated to “The Lie.”
This hotfix offers with another sandbox bugs (Wormgod, Warmind Cells expiditing Supers, and so forth), and has been within the pipe for some time.

Since Sunday, Bungie has had two pre-scheduled upkeep durations — one for the API on Monday, and this minor hotfix on Tuesday. While Bungie deliberate each patches lengthy earlier than “The Lie” broke, Destiny’s Community Managers have needed to remind gamers that Tuesday’s patch and Monday’s upkeep wouldn’t repair “The Lie.”

While this patch doesn’t handle the issue, Bungie Help tweeted on Monday that builders have found the issue inflicting “The Lie” to bug. However, the staff nonetheless must find a fix, test that fix, verify it, and then certify a hotfix launch. Once these steps are full, gamers ought to be capable to end “The Lie.”
It’s at the moment unclear if this can be a downside Bungie can clear up by the top of the week, or if gamers might want to wait every week or extra to complete this quest.
