Read the Destiny 2 Hotfix patch notes here

UPDATE 2: Here are the Patch Notes, they fixed the obelisk but just disabled Tess’ notification!


  • Fixed an issue where Wish-Ender’s Broadhead perk was dealing more damage than intended
  • Equipping both a Fusion Rifle Scavenger mod and a Linear Fusion Scavenger mod will no longer cause Heavy ammo to be gained from Special ammo boxes
  • Using Telesto with the Heavy Handed obelisk mod will no longer generate unintentional extra Special ammo


  • Fixed an issue that would cause the EDZ Obelisk interact component to despawn


  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Sundial reward currency to be issued to players twice


  • Eververse waypoint notification has been disabled
  • The Season 9 Seasonal Starter Bundle will no longer appear as owned for players who bought the Season 8 Seasonal Starter Bundle


  • Gunsmith weekly destination bounty will be re-enabled and properly rotate weekly (instead of daily)

  • Crucible daily bounties will now rotate daily

UPDATE: Maintenance is over and the hotfix is now ready to download, at least it is on PS4. I have travelled to the EDZ obelisk and accessed it straight away. Bungie have yet to post the patch notes, as soon as they have we will get them up. However, I can confirm Wishender is back to normal, boo!


ORIGINAL STORY: The delayed hotfix and maintenance for Destiny 2 has now begun having been postponed earlier this week. Here’s the schedule of events, don’t forget that UTC is the same as GMT.

The hotfix will resolve a few known issues, including the EDZ Obelisk bug which has been a problem for almost a month, and also fix the annoying Eververse waypoint notification which has been showing that Guardians have something to pick up from Tess when there is actually nothing to acquire.

Bungie have also announced a fundraiser to help those affected by horrendous fire sweeping across Australia, here’s more from Sr. Foundation Manager Christine Edwards.

The bush fires currently ravaging Australia have been devastating. Many people have lost their homes, firefighters are risking their lives daily, and an estimated hundreds of millions of wild animals have fallen victim to the fires.

We are developing a limited-edition T-shirt fundraising campaign to support both Australia’s firefighting efforts and the country’s animal rescue and conservation efforts. The T-shirt, which comes with an exclusive Destiny 2 “Star Light, Star Bright” emblem redemption code with purchase, will be available for pre-order on the Bungie Store and Bungie Store EU between Thursday, January 16 and Tuesday, February 18 at 9 a.m. Pacific, ending with the weekly reset and the end of Crimson Days. The team is currently hard at work on the T-shirt design and we’ll share a preview early next week.

The first half of all profits generated by these T-shirt sales will be donated to WIRES, Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization. The other half will be donated to NSW Rural Fire Service, which services the state of New South Wales, where the fires have been especially devastating and are in dire need of containment.

News Editor, very inappropriate, probs fancies your dad.


  1. Should at least make Gambit a little more bearable now Wish-Ender is no longer broken.

    • Oh and the very best thing about this update is them getting rid of the damn Eververse notification!

  2. So happy they have fixed the EDZ obelisk bug, strange it took them so long

    • Not really strange, it was mostly a problem whilst they were on their Christmas holiday, which they’re fully entitled to have.
