Destiny 2 Hotfix patch notes allow more text spam before restriction

It would appear that text-happy Guardians are going to be less limited in their communications following the latest Destiny 2: The Witch Queen hotfix.


Another few weeks have passed and Destiny 2 still has some kinks to work out to make the game a more pleasing experience for all comers. Hotfix just dropped and with it comes a fix on spam text chat. Fortunately for those who like making liberal of use of their communication privileges, Bungie has dropped a change that will reduces the restrictions on spam before notifications kick in. Check out these and further tweaks, bug fixes and more in the Destiny 2 Hotfix patch notes.

Destiny 2 Hotfix patch notes

Destiny 2 Hotfix patch notes chat spam
Interestingly enough, Destiny 2 Hotfix's patch notes reel in the restrictions on chat spam, allowing more messages before a notification pops up to limit your chatter.

Bungie launched Destiny 2’s Hotfix and its accompanying patch notes on April 26, 2022. One of the biggest headliners in this one is a change on text chat spam. Now, if you’re trying to cram text messages through, you can get away with a few more than previously allowed before a "You're sending messages too quickly!" message kicks in and starts limiting you. You can see the entirety of the patch notes alongside the spam text change below:


  • Fixed an issue where killing a Hive Ghost was granting more than one revive token in activities.
  • Fixed an issue where Grandmaster The Lightblade and Birthplace of the Vile were not contributing to the Total Conquest Triumph.


  • Fixed an issue allowing players to exit the play area on Eternity.


  • Fixed an issue where killing the Envoys would not drop the Primeval’s shield.
  • Fixed an issue where the Primeval would not appear after  banking 100 Motes.
