As far as the hallmark fixes of Destiny 2 update 2.13 are concerned, probably the most important aspects are the notes shifted towards the top. Given that the Battlegrounds activity is one of the main facets of Season of the Chosen, it's important to make sure all its elements function properly with regard to modifiers and the enemies you'll find during the encounter. If you're on the hunt for Umbral Engrams and Hammer Strikes, each piece of the puzzle has to function as it should. In that same token, the smaller fix for the Ticuu's Divination catalyst quest is a major part of making sure Guardians enjoy a complete experience with the latest Battle Pass.

In the case of this particular hotfix, it may be what's not listed here that winds up being most critical to your Destiny 2 grind over the next few days. The 12-player raid glitch, which has just been discovered over the past few days, remains in the game even with this patch installed. So if you've been struggling to get a completion for Deep Stone Crypt or Garden of Salvation, you've still got a solid window of time to make it happen. We're not sure when the glitch will be patched, however, so make sure you do it while you still can. In other words, Destiny 2 update 2.13 fixes most of the important bugs that should be fixed while leaving doors open for some flawed but fun extracurricular activities.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC and Stadia.
