Bungie just released a “hot fix” patch for Destiny. This is just days after the scifi shooter’s big December update arrived.

The Sparrow Racing was just one of the big things in the updates. However, as Bungie’s website explains, this update fixes the Sparrow Racing League exploit that allowed players to get an item that normally costs $10 for free. Bungie promised to fix this issue right away, because we can’t have people getting things for free, can we?

There was a number of things that needed to be fixed pretty quickly. You can see the full hot fix patch notes below.

Destiny December 9 Hot Fix Patch Notes (Which comes straight from he Bungie Website):


  • Fixed an issue where Exotic Leg Engrams did not decrypt into any items.
  • Fixed an issue where copies of “The Climb” FWC Ship was incorrectly providing Reputation.
    • This has been temporarily disabled on the Ship Collection kiosk and will be fixed in a future update.
  • Fixed an issue where the SRL Record Book, Vol. 1 items did not require the player to own the Record Book in order to acquire them.
    • Record Book items will not be deleted from players’ inventories, but will now require ownership of the SRL Record Book in order to equip the items.
    • Any progress already made towards the Record Book will be saved.
    • Warning: Record Book gear can only be acquired once. We are working on a future fix to allow players to attain additional instances in case of accidental deletion.

I have worked hard to become the COO here at GAW and I love it. I write and stream here and I couldn't be happier. I once had a show that I produced, wrote, and co-hosted called the Wide World of Games. I also co-host a podcast called Party Up! I'm an Action-Adventurer, platformer, RPGer, and FPS kind of gamer. Quick to play any game that has magic, swordplay, and/or stealthy elements. If you can customize a character I'm in it for the long haul. Or just give me your 2D platform and I'm a happy camper. What else do you expect from a gamer with a beard and a bow tie tattoo? Seriously.
