As the Destiny 2: The Witch Queen expansion and Season of the Risen carry on, so do Bungie’s efforts to keep everything running smoothly. We’ve seen a few sets of hotfixes and patches roll out, and there’s another today. Taking aim at further fixes throughout Destiny 2 comes Hotfix 4.0.0.5, and we’ve brought the patch notes together right here to let you know what you need to know about what’s been fixed, tweaked, and balanced out.

Destiny 2 Hotfix 4.0.0.5 patch notes

Bungie dropped the Destiny 2 Hotfix 4.0.0.5 patch notes in a blog post on March 29, 2022, following some short server maintenance. The highlight of these particular patch notes is a number of progress halting bugs that have been squashed in The Wellspring: Attack activity. With that and other fixes in play, Destiny 2: The Witch Queen should be a more solid experience for players carrying on through the current Season. The full rundown of patch notes in Hotfix 4.0.0.5 can be found just below:

Activities 

The Wellspring: Attack

  • Fixed an issue where players were able to avoid being pulled into the boss arena during encounter when pressed up against Hive shield barriers.
  • Fixed an issue where players that joined the activity late would prevent activity barriers from spawning, blocking further Wellspring progression. 
  • Fixed an issue where Wizards and carried objects could be pushed to sink through the middle pillar, soft-locking the instance. 

PsiOps Battlegrounds

  • Fixed an issue in the Cosmodrome that blocked players from picking up Captured Light, blocking further progression.

Trials of Osiris 

  • Fixed an issue where Trials of Osiris Mementos were not dropping when players claimed their first Flawless chest of the week. 

Gameplay and Investment

Weapons 

  • Fixed an issue where combatants would remain stun-locked indefinitely when hit with a Glaive melee. 
  • Balance tweaks were made to the Firmly Planted perk on Fusion Rifles.
  • Effectiveness reduced by 50%.
  • Glaives will now reach full charge after landing four successful projectile hits.

Armor

  • Suppressing Glaive now consumes (and requires) 10% weapon energy when applying suppression with the Glaive melee. 

Aspects: 

  • Child of the Old Gods is now more likely to reach its intended target, no longer bouncing off its directed path. 
  • We are still proud of the Child, even more than we were last week. Good job, Child.

General

  • Fixed an issue that prevented stat trackers from counting weekly, Seasonal, and lifetime Vow of the Disciple raid carries. 
  • We are temporarily removing game credits from Destiny 2.
  • The Director Node will return in a future update.

That covers the Destiny 2 Hotfix 4.0.0.5 patch notes. Be sure to stay tuned for further Destiny 2 coverage and check out our full strategy guide and walkthroughs for any of your Guardian needs.
