Things are about to get a little more comfortable in Destiny 2, assuming your comfort is upended by the fact that you’re seeing duplicate Exotics drop. Some preliminary patch notes for Destiny 2 update 2.0.5 have been posted in Bungie’s weekly update and they’ve got a few changes to make life just that much easier for Guardians.

The new update will make a few much-wanted tweaks to the game, including letting players turn in 25 Gunsmith materials at a time to Banshee-44; renaming Masterwork Cores to Enhancement Cores and making them part of Scrapper’s and The Spider’s weekly bounties; and adjustments to Malfeasance, Wish Ender and pulse rifles.

There will also be changes Exotic loot drops, tuning things to make sure that Exotics you’ve not received yet drop more frequently. If you do get dupes, you’re likely to see them as armor pieces since they have random perks.

Finally, the update will also introduce the Refer-A-Friend program’s arrival, which will begin on October 30th. Players who have purchased Forsaken can send a special link to friends, then duo together for a series of quest steps for some unique rewards. All of the details are found here.

Our Thoughts

There’s plenty of nice touches in this update, to be sure, but we expect that folks will be most excited about the Exotic drop rates. Now if only I could genuinely, honestly stop seeing the friggin’ Edge Transit grenade launcher. Seriously, folks, the memes are real.
