Destiny 2 players are finally getting a fix for an issue that’s been present in the game since launch, but it brings along a limited-time challenge. According to Bungie, while raid keys will no longer mysteriously disappear from a player’s inventory with the upcoming 1.1.0 update, the current keys Guardians have will be gone once the game is updated.
In a brief post on the Bungie support page, the developer addressed the long-running issues with raid keys in which players were losing their earned keys by creating a new character or switching to another created character. Leviathan’s keys are vital, as they can be used to unlock hidden chests that hold high-power gear within the raid’s maze. While the upcoming update that will launch the game’s first expansion, Curse of Osiris, will fix the issue, Bungie also warned current keys will be gone. “Any keys remaining in character inventory will be removed upon accepting this update, which is expected to become available for pre-load starting at 8 a.m. PT,” Bungie stated.
In turn, players only have a short window to reenter Leviathan and use any held raid keys, as preloading for Curse of Osiris will begin in the early hours of December 5th. Previously, the developer attempted to fix the situation by merely warning Guardians from switching characters or creating a new one, with a bug fix later implemented that was intended to fix the problem. However, the glitch still happened to many players, but now, with the December 5th launch of Curse of Osiris, this will mark the end of the raid key problem—hopefully.
The keys are just one of many issues Bungie has been attempting to address recently, though. In a lengthy update from the developer, several mechanics were reported to be receiving a tweak, including how Legendary shards can be used and why Guardians have been having issues with XP gains. December 5th, along with a second patch on December 12th, will implement many of the proposed changes and new features, like the Masterworks weapon class, so players will at least have new content to enjoy in the midst of bug fixes. Of course, Curse of Osiris is the main update, which will unlock a new campaign on Mercury, more Leviathan modes, a level cap change, and more.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
