Latest Destiny 2 news, update, patch notes and more. Destiny 2 news today and every day.
In a recent piece covering the update for Lord of Wolves, Luke Smith talked about how the weapon has run rampant in Iron Banner. It's been enough of an issue for Bungie to consider turning it off for all activities, but they haven't yet. In a conversation during GuardianCon, Smith added that there was an internal decision made between fixing the weapon now, or preserving July's work life balance, and they made the right decision.
Last week GuardianCon raised $3.7 million for charity, and hosted the biggest Bungie segment in the event's history. The entire charity marathon was a wholesome experience, hosted by people who have built careers out of gaming, and have a passion for Destiny that is unrivalled. We're extremely pleased to be able to report that not only did the event beat its fundraising goal, it smashed it.
Xur is back! This week the shady Exotic vendor is on Earth in the EDZ, hanging out in Winding Cove. To find him you need to head to the crashed Fallen Ketch, jump up to the very top, and you'll see his scary face. Failing that, head to Winding Cove and look for where all the Guardians are gathered. Let's dive in and look at his wares this week.
Bungie have made some big changes to Eververse this year already. They've completely redesigned to store to look a lot like the one you see in Anthem, take that how you will, but there are way more changes on the way. Bungie touched on some of these in their recent livestream, but they didn't cover everything. What they did touch on in the livestream they didn't do so in any great detail, so they've fleshed out their plans slightly for us. Let's dive in and see what's going to change this Autumn.
Today between 1-5 PM PDT, 4-9 PM EDT, or 9PM to 2AM GMT, you can watch the GuardianCon Charity Livestream over on Twitch.

Bungie have laid out a lot of incentives for donating, as well as some other stuff surrounding the event, so let's dive in a check out what's going on.
Xur is back in the game once again, and he's revisiting his old lurking ground. Head to Nessus if you want to see Xur this week, he's over on Calus' Barge taking in all the riches the Emperor has to offer, not that he'd do anything with it. Let's dive in and check out his, admittedly pretty awesome, offerings this week.
In a recent Tweet the General Manager for Destiny, Mark Noseworthy, told the world that Bungie is absolutely interested in cross-play for Destiny 2. However, he added that this feature would be something that the developer would be looking into implementing much further down the road.
If you thought you'd be able to use all of your Destiny 2 accounts from across various platforms once cross-save comes to the game, you're very wrong. Recent confirmation from various sources have revealed that once cross-save is enabled, Guardians will need to pick one Destiny 2 account to be used across all platforms, and stick with it.
After a bit of a debacle in which he forgot a weapon last week, Xur is back in the game post-Season of Opulence release and he's changed up his location! This week you can find him on Calus' Barge in Watcher's Grave over on Nessus. Let's dive in and have a look at what he's selling.
