Destiny 2 Update 2.2.1.1 Patch Notes - April 11

destiny 2 recluse update 2211
'Destiny 2' hotfix 2.2.1.1 fixes bugs with Pinnacle Weapons like the Recluse. No more farming Enhancement Cores! Bungie
  • Fixed an issue where Wavesplitter was being rewarded from Xûr on unintended platforms
    • The weapon will persist in inventory, and become available to equip in September 2019
  • Fixed an issue where players could re-acquire pinnacle weapons from vendors at no cost
    • Players should be able to acquire pinnacle weapons beginning at 5 p.m. EDT after taking the patch.
  • Fixed an issue where players could have the Sentry perk "Umbral Strike" even when not having the proper amount of Sentry armor equipped
    • Sentry perks will be re-enabled at 5 p.m. EDT.

The main issues in this update center around a Pinnacle Weapon glitch that essentially allowed players to farm unlimited Enhancement Cores. When active, Guardians could earn a Pinnacle weapon multiple times and then dismantle it to claim the seven Enhancement Cores each time. As expected, Bungie was quick to shut the illicit venture down. As stated above, players could also do insane amounts of Gambit Prime damage using a glitched version of the Umbral Strike perk. The exploit essentially broke the mode, so the gear had to be reworked.

Destiny 2 update 2.2.1.1 arrives just days after the release of the Arc Week patch that rebalanced the Arc subclass and tweaked loot drops. The Thunderlord Exotic quest also became available for Guardians to complete.

Destiny 2 is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The 2.2.1.1 hotfix is live on all platforms as an over-the-air download. For more info on the Season 6 Pinnacle Weapons, check out our guide.
