In Bungie’s latest weekly blog post, the company took the time to admit their shortcomings when it came to communicating with the Destiny 2 playerbase in regards to certain aspects of how things in Season 2 would work.

Specifically, Bungie has apologized for not being clear about the fact that certain Season 2 weapons, which are supposed to be obtained by decrypting Faction Engrams, will be made available over a period of time, as opposed to all of them being released at once. Many players were confused and perturbed in regards to not being able to obtain certain weapons until Bungie provided the release details.

“It was not made clear beforehand that the new Season 2 weapons would be added throughout the events of the Season rather than all at once in the beginning. This was on us. No excuses” the blog post read. “We will be remedying this lapse in communication next week with details on what you should expect when the next Iron Banner rolls out in Season 2.”

Bungie also acknowledge a glitch in Faction Rallies, which allowed players to potentially earn more coins than they should have been able to. To remedy this, the update to the game that Bungie rolled on on Decemeber 12 introduced Faction token rewards, which prevented some players from obtaining Lost Sector rewards. In response to player feedback, Bungie will be introducing yet another overhaul.

“We’re looking at a change that won’t make players feel forced to run to and from a single chest for hours while also not placing a hard stop on enjoying Lost Sectors. We want to ensure that every time you open a chest there is loot inside”, Bungie said.

The company plans to announce their new fix before the next Faction Rallies event begins.
