After a much longer than anticipated server outage, the maintenance is complete on Destiny 2.

The new patch– update 1.0.3 has also dropped, Bungie has released a new update and shared the patch notes that detail everything it does for Destiny 2.

Whats new?

Most notable in update 1.0.3 is the addition of Faction Rallies. These time-sensitive events allow you to pledge your loyalty to one of the three factions and then earn reputation tokens for performing certain tasks.

These can then be exchanged for rewards, with an exclusive weapon also up for grabs at the end of the event.

The patch predominantly deals with with bug fixes, though there are also some other notable additions and changes. The Call to Arms Milestone, which tasks you with playing Crucible matches every week, will now require less progress to complete.

Additionally, the location of Power ammo has been adjusted for both Clash and Supremacy.

In terms of bug fixes, players should now properly receive their weekly clan Engrams, although you’ll still lose out on them during weeks where you leave a clan. Clan XP should also now be always handed out properly for participating in Public Events. And in Crucible, new measures have been taken to prevent players from leaving the map.
