Destiny 2 Update 2.5.2 releases next week, full patch notes revealed

Bungie has announced that it will release a brand new update next week in order to add support for the new Solstice of Heroes event. Moreover, this patch will bring some balance to Lord of Wolves, and it will include a few more changes and fixes.

Going into more details, update 2.5.2 will reduce the amount of ammo Shotgun scavenger perks can give to Lord of Wolves when in the Release the Wolves state and will the effective range on Lord of Wolves.

The Iron Banner quest objective values will been adjusted for future events, by reducing grenade kills required by 50% (and ally grenade kills will be worth as much as your own) and by reducing Sword kills required by 25% (and ally sword kills will be worth as much as your own).

Moreover, this patch will fix an issue where completion notifications did not appear after completing bounties, which will also fix an issue where players would sometimes not spawn during a Crucible match.

Our guess is that this patch will be released right before the launch of the Solstice of Heroes event which is scheduled to go live on July 30th (and will run until August 27th).

Below you can find the changelog for this upcoming update.
