Destiny 2 Patch Fixes EDZ Obelisk Bug, But Nerfs Wish-Ender And Telesto

Uncategorized Admin 0

Bungie has released a new patch for Destiny 2 that addresses a number of the troubles that have faced the Season of Dawn since its launch a few weeks ago. The new patch, Hotfix 2.7.0.2, is now live in the game and fixes a few key troubles, like players’ inability to interact with the EDZ Sundial obelisk.

Patch notes for the hotfix are live on Bungie’s website, which detail a short list of changes to the game that mostly remove bugs and make minor but meaningful adjustments. The EDZ bug is probably the biggest one–previously, Guardians had to repeatedly enter the area that includes the obelisk in an attempt to get the prompt to appear that allowed them to interact with it. The patch also fixes a weekly Gunsmith calibration bounty, which hasn’t been available since the start of the season.

Hotfix 2.7.0.2 also makes some fixes to things that were actually working out in players’ favor. Bungie has reduced the amount of damage the Exotic bow Wish-Ender does with its Broadhead perk. Throughout the Season of Dawn, Wish-Ender has been doing a ton of extra damage, which has made it a go-to weapon for killing primevals in Gambit matches. The hotfix also fixes Telesto, which would dish out additional Special ammo when paired with the Heavy Handed seasonal mod.

Check out the full list of changes and fixes below. You might also want to check out our Corridors of Time guide, following the work of the Destiny 2 community to solve a new secret quest that was added to the game this week.
