Destiny 2 update 1.0.6 is live, fixes Bureaucratic Walk Emote collision, tweaks Crucible match parameters, more

By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 2 November 2017 18:18 GMT

Destiny 2 update 1.0.6 is now available on all platforms and Hotfix 1.0.6.1 is available for PC.

Destiny 2 went offline for maintenance today, Thursday, November 2, to apply update 1.0.6 and a Hotfix for Clan rosters and a gradual performance degradation issue on PC.

One of the major changes made with update 1.0.6 is ensuring public spaces more populated and some of the Crucible’s match parameters have been tweaked. This has resulted in Mercy Rule settings being adjusted.

It will allow Mercy to activate slightly later in the match, allowing a wider range of scores to trigger it. While you update the game, be sure to give our Destiny 2 guide as read for anything Crucible related you need.

Oh, the collision detection issue on the Silly Walk Bureaucratic Walk Emote has been fixed.

Full Destiny 2 patch and hotfix notes are below.
