Destiny 2 – Witch Queen Reveal Date, Bungie Day and more FREE Emblems
Bungie was back this week with their latest news dump in the form of This Week At Bungie, plus some free gifts and also, this week was Bungie Day, so plenty of celebrations going on. Today I’ll bring you all the news, including the latest on the Witch Queen Expansion and Season 15 reveal coming soon, and some free gifts which you can get hold of today.
This week at Bungie, we set a date.
No, we aren’t getting married, but we did send out a save the date. Mark down August 24 in your novelty paper calendars that you bought from that mall kiosk. Or maybe save a reminder in your phone if you have abandoned physical calendars altogether. We are looking forward to sharing more with you about the future of Destiny 2. See you then.
Back to the present. A new update went live this week and Solstice of Heroes has kicked off. Guardians are buzzing around the European Aerial Zone chasing after chests and upgrading their armor as we speak. That’s not all, Vault of Glass Master difficulty also became available this week for all players. You can get a rundown of what to expect from last week’s TWAB.
IT’S A BUNGIE-FUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
When updates are inbound or issues arise, our team of experts on Player Support are always there monitoring the situation and giving you updates from @BungieHelp.
This is their report.
With the launch of Update 3.2.1 players found that all previously redeemed Triumphs from Season 13 and Season 14 needed to be re-redeemed. This was the result of a fix for an issue that caused Season 14 Triumphs to incorrectly share Triumph Scores with Season 13 Triumphs.
As a result of this fix players may notice a slight decrease in their Season 13 Triumph score due to their scores being recalculated correctly.
Additionally, we are currently investigating players being unable to re-redeem the Catalyst Competitor and One Fell Strike Triumphs.
TOKEN TURN IN
With the launch of Season 15 on August 24, Vanguard reputation ranks will be updated and no longer require the use of Vanguard Tokens.
Due to this, Vanguard Tokens will be deprecated at the launch of the Season. Players should turn in their Vanguard Tokens to Zavala to receive rewards this Season before August 24 when their Tokens expire.
While we continue investigating various known issues, here is a list of the latest issues that were reported to us in our #Help Forum:
- Renewed Solstice armor displays the Season of the Splicer icon instead of the Solstice icon.
- The Light and Dark Weekly Solstice bounty for Gambit will only gain progress from elemental final blows on Guardians.
- The Prismatic Taken event UI may overlap other objective UI when players have multiple buffs active.
- Prismatic Orbs do not contribute to total Elemental Orbs collected by players.
2018 Solstice armor set glows may be less intense on certain portions of the armor.
- Pieces of the Filigree of Light shell disappear when rotating the Ghost shell in the inventory preview.
- We are currently investigating reports of Solstice Key Fragments and Solstice packages being removed from player inventories.
- The Repeatable Solstice Bounties do not display their Bright Dust reward when viewed in Eva’s inventory. Completing these Repeatable Bounties will still award ten Bright Dust each.
- The Baby Fallen emote will appear at the very end of player emote inventories.
Players are receiving the Plug One.1 Fusion Rifle instead of the Uzume RR4 Sniper Rifle as a Nightfall completion reward.
- Subtitles do not appear during new Mithrax announcement dialogues.
- Subtitles do not appear when interacting with the House of Light banner in the Eliksni Quarter.
- The Ludomaniacal emblem does not unlock after players reset their Infamy rank three times. Player may be able to get around this by claiming an Exotic engram from Drifter’s inventory.
- The Unstoppable Schwarzschild Condensor mod costs 5,000 Glimmer to apply instead of the usual 500.

BUNGIE DAY 2021
Happy Bungie Day, everyone! You know how it’s awkward when it’s your birthday and you are having to open presents while a bunch of people watch you. Then people begin singing… and you just want to escape out of a window? That’s kind of what this is like for us. We wish we were pretentious enough to make up a holiday dedicated to ourselves, but looking back, we like to use this opening paragraph to anxiously explain that we would never do something like that.
Bungie Day was created by our amazing community long, long ago because of something to do with our weird fixation on the number seven. So here we are on the seventh day of the seventh month celebrating our still-amazing community and the years of action-packed memories forged in the worlds we’ve created. Without you, this world wouldn’t feel as bright as it does.
Between the charity initiatives you’ve supported and constant comradery we see on display throughout social media and in-person events, we can safely say that every day with this community is a gift. You’ve been a beacon of hope, a source of joy, a ferocious beast hellbent on wearing a raid boss’s ass as a hat, and so much more. Thank you for everything you’ve done, and everything you will do in the future.
