In Destiny 2, Bungie has removed the Jötunn Exotic Fusion Rifle in all Combat scenarios. This is because a few players found an exploit that enabled them to take up 10 special ammunition from each package instead of the normal one, resulting in some truly broken gaming.
Jötunn is an Exotic Hybrid Rifle that causes massive damage and has a projectile that can follow foes to ensure you take them out. It was already a little too strong for the Crucible, but an exploit found by players after the release of Lightfall and Season of Defiance rendered it unstoppable. When using Jötunn with the Solar Scavenger Mod on their current boots, the exploit enabled players to get 10 ammunition from every Special Ammo case. The hack is demonstrated in the movie below by YouTuber Cheese Forever.
Bungie has deleted this exploit from the game mode completely due to the misuse of Crucible features it symbolizes. However, this isn’t the only significant modification made by the creator in the last few hours. It also fully disables the Arc Hunter’s Disorienting Blow combat. This appears to have occurred because, for whatever reason, the strike had no delay. This enabled Arc Hunters to repeatedly fire their fully-powered melee strike without having to wait for it to replenish.
The introduction of Lightfall and Season of Defiance is almost definitely to blame for these problems. The major expansion adds a lot of new material to the game, and despite extensive testing, it’s obvious that there were some problems that went unnoticed. However, this issue with Jötunn was so specific that it’s difficult to tell whether it could have been detected at all before publication.
The debut of Destiny 2 Lightfall has been anything but seamless. While this may appear to be the case on the surface, there have been several problems that have stopped some players from participating. The most difficult of these is with Xbox users. Bungie released a set of guidelines for Xbox Series X/S players to follow in the days leading up to the release of Lightfall.
Xbox players having issues accessing their Lightfall DLC may have had their purchase refunded by their financial institution or platform. Players should check that they have the DLC successfully installed and the contents included in their specific owned edition of the DLC.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) February 28, 2023
Overnight, Bungie made a thread informing those same Xbox users that they should check to see if their Lightfall buy was refunded. As a consequence, many players were unable to participate because they lacked the expansion through no fault of their own. We’re not sure why Xbox systems appear to be having more problems than others at the time of writing, but it’s obvious that Bungie is having trouble with the hardware.
