Destiny


 

Update 1.1.1 is now available for Destiny 2 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, making changes to engram drops, Xur, vendors, and more.

The highlight of this update is the introduction of Masterworks weapons that will drop for all characters who are above 250 power level. These new Legendary weapons grant additional orbs on multikills, feature additional stats that can be re-rolled, and track kills.

As well as this, the update adds a three of coins consumable to Xur that will increase the drop rate of exotics, adds the Fated Engram to Xur’s inventory that will grant an Exotic that the player doesn’t already own, and makes it so vendors will now sell legendary gear in exchange for Legendary shards and faction tokens.

Legendary and Exotic engram drop rates have also been reduced in Public Events, but increased for Strike and Crucible playlist activities, and the chance of getting multiple Legendary items from Legendary engrams has been reduced.

Other fixes include the Prestige Leviathan raid power requirement being brought back down to 300, the Nightfall component being removed from “The Prestige” achievement/trophy, and a heavy nerf for the Prometheus Lens Exotic Trace Rifle.
