Solstice of Heroes

Moments of Triumph

  • Moments of Triumph bounties will become available in-game for the Solstice of Heroes event starting July 31, 2018.

  • Players may access a set number of Triumphs on Bungie.net prior to the event beginning.

  • Players can complete Triumphs to earn points that they can trade for rewards such as emblems, a Sparrow, and a code to purchase a special T-shirt.

  • When the summer event becomes available on July 31, 2018, players can receive these Triumph bounties from the special summer event vendor and will have the entirety of the event to complete them.

  • Triumphs are based on account-specific data; once a Triumph has been claimed and redeemed for points, it cannot be claimed for points on another character.

  • All Triumphs can be tracked via bungie.net; the highest values of a character on that account will be displayed.

  • In-game rewards will become available on July 31, 2018. Stay tuned to @Bungie for announcements of availability.

  • The catalyst for Sturm can now be found by defeating enemies on Nessus.

Miscellaneous Quality-of-Life Changes

  • Adjusted Escalation Protocol weapon reward chances to be more deterministic.

  • Players improve their chances each time they defeat the boss.

  • Once all Mercury Forge weapons have been obtained, they become available for direct purchase from Brother Vance in the Lighthouse (second vendor page).

  • Momentum has been removed from Heroic adventures.

  • The “Pursuits” inventory bucket has been moved to the top of Inventory categories.

  • Fixed an issue where unequippable emotes could be selected.

  • Fixed an issue where no sound would play on increasing and decreasing the handicap on Challenge Cards.

  • Commas have been added to large numbers as separators on the IGCR and PGCR.

  • Fixed an issue which prevented the Season 3 Dead Orbit Gauntlet Ornament from receiving progress from Arcstriders using the Way of the Warrior subclass tree.

Strike Modifiers

  • Blackout: Now increases enemy melee damage significantly but is no longer a guaranteed one-shot kill for all players.

  • Glass: Slightly reduced the health and shield penalty.

  • Grounded: Significantly reduced incoming damage when you are airborne, to account for odd geometry that Guardians may not have any control over.

Developer Insight: The goal is to ensure these modifiers are noticeable, but when Guardians advance their Power and stats, they can notice themselves overcoming the debuffs.


  • The Nightfall tutorial experience for new players has been updated to no longer call out pre-1.1.3 Nightfall mechanics.



  • Fixed an issue that was preventing some players from accessing Mars adventures.

  • Fixed an issue that caused some open world chests on Mars to not drop Glimmer or Mars tokens.
