Bungie reveals list of known issues in Destiny 2: Lightfall

According to Bungie via the Destiny 2 Help Forum, there are currently over 20 issues occurring in Lightfall.

Here are all of the issues Bungie has pointed out at the moment.


  • The Arc Hunter's Disorienting Blow melee has been temporarily disabled.
  • Opening the Commendations Snapshot screen sometimes causes the game to crash.
  • The Guardian Ranks seasonal reset text incorrectly states that ranks 6 through 10 are advance ranks and players at these ranks will reset to rank 5 at the end of the season. Ranks 7 through 11 are advance ranks and players at these ranks will reset to rank 6 at the end of the season.

Cross Play

  • Changing the platform setting " Others can communicate w/ voice, text, or invites " does not take effect until the game has been restarted.

  • Players running Destiny with an integrated graphics card may encounter gameplay performance issues if the integrated graphics card does not meet the minimum required PC specs. 
    • Laptops with Intel 12th generation Iris integrated graphics may crash in high demand environments. Players can mitigate these crashes by ensuring Windows 10 is set to use only discrete graphics when running Destiny 2 via Windows->Settings->Graphics Settings, and selecting "High Performance" for Destiny 2.
