In the grand scheme of Destiny 2 updates, there's nothing too earth shattering about hotfix 2.0.2. As expected after a major DLC release like Forsaken, this small patch largely focuses on fixing minor issues with the expansion instead of introducing new features to a content-rich experience. That being said, making sure new Bounties and Triumphs progress properly is a pretty big deal for those hoping to make the most of the weekly grind. If you've already been digging what Forsaken has to offer, Destiny 2 hotfix 2.0.2 only makes its gameplay that much smoother.

Today's client-side hotfix arrives hours after several server-side patches intended to fix critical exploits. One bug in particular allowed Guardians to obtain Raid Chest gear without completing a raid. While the brief competitive advantage has since been snuffed out, Bungie is allowing those who performed the exploit to keep the high-level gear they've earned.

Today's Weekly Reset includes Strikes like Inverted Spire, The Hollowed Lair and Will of the Thousands. The latest Flashpoint is on Nessus.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. On PS4, hotfix 2.0.2 is listed as version 1.25.
