Destiny 2 update 2.5.2 available for download, brings Weapon and Armor tweaks, adds Solstice of Heroes event

As promised, Bungie has released a brand new patch for Destiny 2. Update 2.5.2 adds support for the Solstice of Heroes event. During this event, players will need to upgrade their new set of armor by completing a number of objectives and participating in a new activity that’s specific to Solstice. Moreover, there will be new cosmetic rewards to acquire during the event.

Update 2.5.2 also comes with some Weapon and Armor tweaks/changes/fixes. For example, it fixes an issue that allowed the Feeding Frenzy perk to be applied to any weapon, fixes an issue where the cloth component of the Iron Symmachy Cloak wasn’t rendering correctly, as well as an issue where the cloth component of the Terra Concord Mark wasn’t rendering correctly.

As we’ve already reported, this patch also comes with some Tribute Hall, Iron Banner and Menagerie / Chalice tweaks, and some changes to the Truth quest. For instance, it fixes a bug where players could become blocked from earning Truth if they opened the Ascendant chest in the strike “Warden of Nothing” before being on the appropriate quest step.

Last but not least, Bungie has fixed an issue where completion notifications would not appear after players completed bounties (which will also fix an issue where players would sometimes not spawn during a Crucible match).

As always, Battlenet (or Blizzard’s app if you will) will download this patch the next time you launch its client, and you can find its complete changelog below.
