Destiny 2 Nightfall Strikes will be a little bit less chaotic thanks to hotfix

2 min read

You’re running a Nightfall strike. The Red Legion are closing in and you need a Hail Mary. You need to cycle in the right gun for the right face, as the Prism modifier is active and you just know that the right application of a few rounds from your Sunshot hand cannon will burn worse than that time you made the mistake of heckling Jimmy Carr.

So which element is in play at any given time? That has been a mild annoyance in Destiny 2’s Nightfall strikes, as knowing which gun to swap to during a run while all hell breaks loose on Nessus usually results in a swift death. Well fret no more, as the latest hotfix for Destiny 2 fixes that irritation like a topical cream on the nether-regions after going commando on a sweltering Summer night while forgetting to plug in the Mosquito repellent machine.

That has never happened to me, of course.

The Prism modifier will now be constantly visible on the screen, in case Guardians lose track of which gun to utilise at any given moment in a Nightfall. Here’s the other list of tweaks that hotfix introduces”


  • Fixed an issue that caused players to not receive Man O’ War Linear Fusion Rifle Quest Reward when they have a full weapon inventory
  • Players can obtain their missing Man O’ War from Asher Mir on IO


  • Fixed an issue where the Prism modifier did not persistently display the currently featured element
  • Prism will now display a brief screen effect when the element changes to increase visibility
  • This will also resolve an issue impacting the Momentum modifier


  • Fixed an issue where a Raid object was receiving an unintended amount of damage from Wardcliff Coil
  • Fixed an issue where completing a Meditation before selecting it from Ikora would hide that Meditation and prevent players from completing it receiving appropriate rewards.
  • Fixed a rare memory leak that would result in a matchmaking crash

This week’s Nightfall Strike is Exodus Crash over on Nessus, which will have the Attrition and Timewarp: Anomalies modifiers active. I have no idea what these mods do, but I’d wager that they result in plenty of death. Probably. Good luck to anyone who still needs their Rat King exotic quest completed with this Strike active.

  1. Everywhere I look I see Destiny Articles. It looks like 90% of articles (Especially on Gamespot) are on Destiny 2.

    Why is the gaming world so obsessed with virtual paintball?

      Because even though there are so many people bashing the game and giving it mediocre reviews, it’s actually still a pretty solid experience.

        I see..

        Haven’t seen a mediocre review yet. I also keep seeing people say “play Warframe instead”.

          Angry Joe is a good example of a mediocre review of the game. He has some valid points, but he is a bit off. Some of his statements are factually incorrect as well.

          As for WF, yeah sure, its a brilliant game and Plains of Eidolon launches in a few weeks, and it’s free for the most part. If you cant convince yourself to buy Destiny, WF is a brilliant alternative

    Ran the current NF last night, and a bunch of our clan did too…. none of us even had the Prism modifier active during the whole strike… and it was definitely meant to be there.

    One of the benefits to playing this on PC later than the console release, aside from the graphics fidelity, is that most of the bugs will hopefully be “sqwashed”.
