Destiny 2 Servers Going Down for Maintenance Before New Hotfix Update

It’s been an exciting week for Destiny 2 fans, with Bungie outlining the Lightfall expansion and releasing the Season of Plunder update. But the latter has coincided with a number of issues, and apparently in response, Bungie will be taking the Destiny 2 servers down for maintenance today, August 25, in order to deploy the hotfix update.

Maintenance is now underway, though players can continue playing for now. At 3:45 p.m. PT / 6:45 p.m. You should then be able to log in again starting at 4pm PT / 7pm ET, which is when the new update will be available. Server queues are possible, so between that and the download itself (which should be relatively small), it may take some time to reconnect. Maintenance is due to formally conclude at 7pm PT/10pm ET.

Bungie hasn’t said what the hotfix includes, but there are a wide variety of issues that have been reported by players that the developer has acknowledged. In particular, almost all heavy grenade launchers were disabled yesterday due to an intended buff being much more powerful than intended. Resilience for Arc subclass titans and warlocks doesn’t provide as much damage resistance as it should. The catalyst quest for the seasonal exotic fusion rifle, Delicate Tomb, is buggy and doesn’t always track progress as it should. And a number of exotic items have been disabled, including the Titans’ Icefall Mantle and the new Point Contact Cannon Mount.

It’s possible that one of these could be the target of the hotfix, but we won’t know for sure until the patch notes are released. Bungie may choose to focus on any critical issues that may affect the King’s Fall Raid, which launches tomorrow, August 26, and will see a modified World First race, due to it being a returning Raid from the first game. The first team to complete the Raid in its Challenge Mode (which requires completing it in Contest Mode first) will win a sweet-looking championship belt.
