Bungie released the Destiny 2 3.3.1 patch notes today. While it comes with plenty of nitty gritty UI/UX changes, Bungie also removed elements of The Corrupted strike that unfairly impended players from certain in-game achievements and rewards.
For example, pre-patch, an Unstoppable Phalanx Champion might appear in the Ascendant Plane, after the players reduced the Ransack Ogre boss to 50% health. According to the patch, the enemy was easy to miss and players could not backtrack to kill it after defeating the ogre. This meant that players could not achieve Platinum completion of the strike through no fault of their own. The patch completely eliminates the enemy. The notes comment, amusingly: “That’s what it deserves.” Other alterations to The Corrupted strike include reducing the knockback buff on the Senia’s Endurance activity modifier, with the intent to help players best Grandmaster difficulty, and fixing a bug that prevent players from completing the scoring Triumph on Nightfall difficulty. The intent seems to be to enable players to finish the strike on higher difficulties on their own merit.
Other notable gameplay changes hit Trials and Momentum Control. Currency reward lockouts at three, five, and seven wins no longer clear when resetting your ticket. The maps Anomaly and The Dead Cliffs were removed from the Momentum Control roster. Some minor gameplay bugs were fixed as well. Horror’s Least Pulse Zero Rifle will no long drop at zero power. The perks Overflow and Shoot to Loot will also no longer double magazine sizes. Players will also find that they can now always sprint or use the Glacial Quake’s light attack, after unleashing the Glacial Quake’s heavy attack.
