The grind to 600 Power in Destiny 2 is proving more arduous than Bungie initially intended, and a fix is on the way.

Bungie has revealed in the weekly update that Destiny 2’s update 2.1.3 will launch on Tuesday, December 18.

The update brings a couple of key changes, most interesting of which is an upgrade to rewards for players below 600 Power. This is the second time Bungie has adjusted this rate, with the first pass having dropped with the most recent patch.

More specially, the upcoming update will boost reward Power for challenges listed on the Director. Power 600 is required to access The Black Armory’s new Lost Forges activity.

Elsewhere in the patch notes, Bungie noted that 1000 Voices is currently doing more damage than intended, which is being fixed.

The Veterans of the Hunt bundle, a reward package Bungie has been promising since the original game was made part of Forsaken, is finally dropping with patch 2.1.3.

Beyond that, Bungie announced that Iron Banner will return between December 25 – January 1. This being the first one in Season 5, you can look forward to new gear. All players will also benefit from double Valor between December 25-28, and triple Valir from December 28 to January 1.

Catch the patch notes for 2.1.3 below:

  • Players under 600 Power will begin to receive higher-powered rewards when completing Director Challenges
  • Fixing an issue where players did not receive the Harbinger’s Echo Sparrow when destroying all Ahamkara Eggs in the Dreaming City
  • Fixing an issue where players who joined an in-progress forge activity would not receive rewards
  • Fixing an issue where weapon frames would be removed from inventory when completing a different forge
  • We have a fix planned in 2.1.3 to address issues affecting damage from 1000 Voices on PC
  • Fixing an issue where Season 5 shaders dismantled slowly
  • Fixing an issue where players who did not earn the Crucible Solemnity shader could not complete the Crucible Badge
  • Fixing an issue where players could not retrieve clan XP rewards from Hawthorne under certain circumstances
  • Once update 2.1.3 has been deployed, players should expect to receive Veterans of the Hunt Bundle package later in the day.
