Destiny 2 Update 2.81 Hotfix full patch notes: Strand Hunter damage fix, artifact reset cost

Destiny 2’s Lightfall and Season of Defiance launch didn’t go well for the in-game sandbox. Many mods are still disabled a week after launch, and players experience many problems during specific activities.

Bungie has shut down its official servers at 8:45 a.m. PST, and the downtime will continue for another two hours until 11 a.m. PST.

Destiny 2 Hotfix Patch Notes details :


  • Fixed an issue where the Silkstrike Super’s Light attack was doing hidden double damage. We´ve removed the critical strike at the tip of the dart and instead granted the critical-strike behavior to the full length of the dart. The damage has been tuned to compensate.
  • Fixed an issue where Arcstrider´s Disorienting Blow melee ability was not costing energy on hit.
  • Fixed an issue where the Lightfall quest previously only tracked the campaign version of the Hypernet Current strike. It will now progress upon completion of any version of the strike.


  • Fixed an issue where the Manticore, Season of the Seraph´s Season Pass Destiny Exotic weapon was missing from collections.


  • Fixed an issue where element-focused armor mods would deactivate when spawning into an activity or respawning after death.
  • Fixed an issue where the seasonal artifact could cost Glimmer to reset.
  • Fixed an issue where Scavenger armor mods were incorrectly activating in Crucible game modes.
  • Fixed an issue where players were able to duplicate ammo drops.


  • Fixed an issue that caused the Commendations screen to crash.
