Bungie has released a new update for Destiny 2 that’s available now on all platforms. Hotfix 220.127.116.11 deals with a variety of nagging issues, but most notably it deals with two things: Warlocks’ Penumbral Blast melee ability and the Season of the Hunt’s Cryptolith Lure item. Read on for the highlights and the full patch notes.
In terms of Penumbral Blast, there are two key changes: Its projectile range has increased by 37%, and its minimum distance to cast the ranged melee ability has been reduced by 32%. With these changes, Bungie says you can throw the ranged melee while you’re closer to your target. After Beyond Light’s release, there were complaints about the effectiveness of Warlocks’ new Stasis melee ability, but a nerf went too far in the other direction for some people’s tastes, so this change seeks to get things back into a better place.
As for the Cryptolith Lure, this is the item that you need to charge (by doing things like completing Crucible matches) in order to initiate a Wrathborn Hunt, the central seasonal activity offered by Crow. It can now be charged twice as fast as before, and you can store more charges–five, rather than the previous cap of three. That means you won’t have to stop what you’re doing in order to use up a charge, if you want to make sure you’re not throwing away progress that you could be making toward building up another charge.
