Destiny 2 news and patch notes – what’s the latest from Bungie
The latest major update for Destiny 2 is a big one. Described by Bungie as the ‘Go Fast’ update, it adds a variety of new features to the core experience while expanding aspects of strikes, crucible, and other aspects.
Strikes now present players with specific loot, providing them an incentive to replay them and reducing the potential of repetitious rewards. However, this can only be acquired through weekly Nightfall Strikes, which already provide a hefty challenge.
One such new weapon is the Silicon Neuroma, which can currently be gained by completing the Nightfall variant of Pyramidion. Exotic repetition has also been reduced as part of the new update, fixing a problem we’ve had with Destiny 2 since launch.

Dawnblades are infinitely more badass with this new update, with class-specific abilities related to the weapon also receiving changes bringing them closer to their vanilla renditions. The Titan Dash is back while the Warlock Glide is far more effective than ever before.
Iron Banner has returned to 6v6 like it was in the original Destiny, which will likely make matches far more manic and fast-paced. Power ammo drops have also been made more frequent if you’re a fan of firing away heavy weapons.
