Destiny 2 update 2.0.3 has arrived on PS4 as version 1.26, and the small download fixes critical bugs in the latest build of the Forsaken expansion. Sadly, those who were scoring easy weapon mods through a BrayTech glitch won't be able to take advantage of it anymore. An official Bungie blog post has the full details.

'Destiny 2' 2.0.3 Patch Notes (Version 1.26 on PS4)



  • Dragonfly Regalia armor now comes with a Masterwork socket.


  • Fixed an issue where Hand Cannons were not using the correct recoil stats for players on PC.
  • Heavy Guard and Swordmaster's Guard now function correctly on Adaptive Swords.



  • Io
    • Fixed an issue where players could be returned to orbit during the final battle of "The Long Play."
    • Fixed an issue where players would sometimes not receive a Seed of Light after interacting with the tree at the end of the mission "Visions of Light."
  • Strikes
    • Fixed an issue where the post-game carnage report would not show at the end of strikes launched via strike-specific Director nodes.


  • Temporarily removed the "Trace Rifle Mastery" Triumph for platforms where players could not complete all objectives.
  • This Triumph will be changed in a future release to be available on all platforms.
  • Changed the Persistent Blaze emblem variant to require 40 Mastery Triumphs.


  • Activity reconnection has been enabled in the Competitive playlist.
    • Players who are disconnected from Destiny 2 servers will have an opportunity to reconnect to their match under the following conditions:
  • The match is still active
  • A connection to the match can be reestablished
    • Players who rejoin matches will NOT be penalized for quitting a match should a rejoin complete successfully.


  • The player state display now appears in Competitive versions of Control and Clash.


  • Activity reconnection has been disabled in the Gambit playlist to allow for faster backfilling of lopsided teams.


  • Fixed an issue where the Traveler's Chosen Sidearm could not be dismantled or transferred to the vault.
  • Fixed an issue where BrayTech RWP Mk. II was granting weapon mods when dismantled.
  • Fixed an issue where Fossilized Hermaion Blossoms were not being granted from strikes.


  • Replaced the Traveler's Chosen Sidearm with damaged version.
  • Removed the Iris Pulsator Ghost Shell from Collections, as it is not currently available.

Dreaming City

  • The bounty "Audience with the Queen" now takes time to abandon, so it cannot be abandoned accidentally.
  • The Offering to the Oracle item now goes to the Postmaster if the player's consumables inventory is full.


  • Daily clan bounties should now rotate at the daily reset, rather than weekly.

Most of the updates in Destiny 2 hotfix 2.0.3 revolve around minor tweaks to improve broken features. However, active players will likely bemoan the patching of a glitch where the BrayTech Mk II could be dismantled for components that would help craft mods for favored guns. With the introduction of a random weapon economy in Forsaken, some players have had trouble finding mods to augment their gear. The BrayTech glitch offered a simple pathway towards that goal, but it's been shut down for good.

Despite update 2.0.3's finer polish accoutrements, one thing you won't find here are major ability or weapon balance tweaks. Code of Commander, for example, is still woefully underpowered, and recoil stat anomalies have not been adjusted for weapon classes beyond the Hand Cannon. It seems likely we'll see another hotfix in the coming week to address these remaining issues.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The 2.0.3 hotfix is available now as version 1.26 on PS4.
