With Destiny‘s recently-released The Dark Below expansion came the hardcore Crota’s End raid, and much like last year’s Vault of Glass mission, budding Guardians soon unearthed loopholes in the system that made the excruciatingly difficult raid much, much easier.
But it looks as though those exploits in question won’t be around for much longer, after Bungie confirmed that an imminent update will serve to remove the loopholes. Due to land at some point next week, the full patch notes can be found below, with the studio also targeting fixes in the Crucible along with some of the shared-world shooter’s AI.
In tandem with the announcement, Bungie also noted that January 13 will hearld the return of the Iron Banner — a multiplayer event that challenges the even the most skilled of Guardians. It’s understood this will continue through until January 19.
For more on this latest update for Destiny, be sure to head on over to the studio’s dedicated blog and check out the full list below.
