Weekly Update and Destiny Update

We forgot to post about it yesterday, but the Weekly Update arrived with a review of King’s Fall raid top-ten and a blub from Senior Designer Andrew Weldon about the new Zone Control game type that we can find in the Weekly playlist. The weekly update was accompanied by patch notes for Destiny Update which includes bug fixes and mitigation for Three of Coins farming rituals.

There's also some patch notes on more of the changes coming in 2.0, news that the Moments of Triumph deadline has been slightly extended, and some tips in there on how to prepare for Taken King.

Catching Up!

So we missed posting the Bungie Weekly Update last week. It's actually been sitting in our BWU archive but we didn't tell you about it. I'm going to blame all of our admin that was having fun at PAX this weekend and not me, sitting at home not really doing anything but crying.

The update reiterates on the Dreadnaught Strike reveal from earlier last week, the upcoming Edge magazine's cover story, and most importantly (and divisively) reveals changes to Nighfall and Heroic Strikes coming in 2.0.

Bungie Weekly Update: Year 2 Is Coming

The latest Weekly Update is up and this week they cover some commonly asked questions asked after their stream yesterday. They also show off the rewards Year 1 players will get, and posted the Youtube archive of the Twitch stream (which you can see below). Less than 4 weeks until Year 2! (See? Told you he hated me. Did he mention the local version? NO.)

Bungie Weekly Update: More Info to Come

DeeJ has posted the Bungie Weekly Update, and this week they are light on details, but full of promises for more info in the coming weeks. DeeJ lays out the schedule for Twitch streams where they will cover the changes and content that are coming in The Taken King. In addition the Security Response team covers the process for issuing restrictions and bans to players. And of course stick around to the end to see what Community Creations Cozmo has picked out! (It's local, too, but for once it's not Xenos' fault that that fact wasn't mentioned here.)

For those not in Germany...

Yesterday's Bungie Weekly Update was Cozmo's first (well, first completely by himself) - and if you missed any of the flood of information pouring out of the media about The Taken King, this has a nice summary. It also has some great pics from Cologne, where the rest of the Bungie Community Crew seems to be. And of course, it's loaded with community creations. (The Hopscotch Pilgrim review is required watching.) As usual, it's local too (and you're reminded of this specifically because Xenos isn't posting this announcement). Go read it, make Cozmo feel useful.

Bungie Weekly Update: The Dreadnaught Awaits

The Bungie Weekly Update is up, and this week it focuses on the Hive Dreadnaught and hints at some of the mysteries we'll uncover within. As is Bungie's style, nothing TOO specific, but there is awesome art, and quite a few good quotes on what they intend to do with this new, enigmatic location. In addition they cover the big winners for Destiny Year One Art Contest, and take a little time to cover the losers who are now suffering from the dreaded Banhammer. [Xenos hates me, but it's local, too. -ce]

It's a shooter.

It went live yesterday, but you know... we were off doing Guardian things. Important Guardian things. Definitely important Guardian things. The Bungie Weekly Update this week focuses on guns... lots of guns. (What else would you need, besides a miracle?) Check out offerings from Häkke, Omolon, and Suros, all available in The Taken King (and some available at Gamestop!)... and maybe drool a little. You'll also find heat maps from ALL currently-used Trials of Osiris maps, because this weekend, the map choice will be random. And you'll find a plea for your email address, for upcoming... somethings. There's a hot fix coming in the next month - details are in the update for you. And the community creations in this week's roundup are a harbinger of things to come. All in all, a solid update - go read it! (If you like, you can even read it in our Weekly Update Archive.)

BWU - The One About Guns

The latest Bungie Weekly Update has been posted, and this one is a doozy! In addition to the regular post, they have the weapon balance details that will be coming in update 2.0.0 (The Taken King update). The main concerns appear to be addressed (Exotic Hand Cannons, Auto Rifles, etc.) and quite a few surprise balance decisions are revealed as well. Go see what you think! (Local, too.)

Bungie Weekly Update, Part Two

The second half of the Bungie Weekly Update went up yesterday - and reading it will give you insights into new features, extra support resources, and a fan video supporting a fallen guardian. Shouldn't take too long to read, but lots of good bits. Local, too, if you need it.

Bungie's Mea Culpa

The Bungie Weekly Update (Part 1 of 2 - stay tuned for the second half tomorrow!) is online now... and it might surprise you. Luke Smith apologizes for the interview that set off a firestorm of criticism this week, and Bungie offers to make amends by allowing you to buy the digital goodies that come with the Collector's Edition, without having to buy the Collector's Edition. Boom. (Our forum is discussing it, as you may have guessed.) You can find a local copy in our Weekly Update Archive, should you need or want it.

Bungie Weekly Update - June 4

This week's Bungie Weekly Update contains some good stuff - details on the money Bungie fans have helped give in aid to Nepal, heatmaps of Pantheon showing where you died last week, warnings about cheating (and playing fair in general), notes about things fixed recently, and some great videos. (Well, I really wanna see the first one, but it looks like it's been blocked on copyright grounds.) It's local, too, if you need it searchable.

It's the one about the Wolves

The Bungie Weekly Update is now live on (and in our BWU Archive) - go check it out, it has some interesting info. First-day (well, first-three-days) stats on Skolas - I'm astounded by the number of folks who've finished the Level 35 PoE event at this point! There's also info on the Trials of Osiris, including a Challenge event coming soon. There are new goodies in the Bungie Store, details on new Help articles on, and a movie which we pointed out recently but which is ABSOLUTELY worth watching again. Go see!

Bungie Weekly Update - Full Recovery!

DeeJ has posted this week's Bungie Weekly Update and you can tell we're getting close to the House of Wolves launch as the details are getting a little more scarce, but still exciting! The big Destiny news this week is that Trials of Osiris will be the testing bed for a Connection Recovery system in case you get disconnected due to networking problems. Go read it for full details and to see when update 1.2.0 will (hopefully) launch! (Local, too.)

More bullets, less talk

The Bungie Weekly Update is live - and along with the fully-expected self-deprecation about the live-streamed Prison of Elders reveal, there's also information about the awesome power of the Bungie community to do good while getting goodies, a summary of the updates expected over the next couple of weeks, and a bunch of housekeeping. Worth a read - go check it out! (Don't forget the local copy.)

Bungie Weekly Update 4.30.15

The Bungie Weekly Update recaps the Trials of Osiris reveal and highlights some of the Crucible tweaks and changes players can expect after downloading the 1.2.0 update on May 19th. Players who did not purchase The Dark Below will have access to all three PVP maps - neat! Also, be sure to check out how you provide aid to the people of Nepal though the Bungie Foundation. Next stop, The Prison of Elders! Thanks, CyberKN. (It's local, too)

The Week in Review, before it's over

The Bungie Weekly Update, not surprisingly, focuses on the upcoming House of Wolves expansion - but there's plenty of other stuff in there if you're not excited about the Reef. The purple ball changes are detailed (and praised), the Player Support team is there with stuff you might have overlooked, and there are a couple of fun fan vids. (We already noted one of them, but it's worth a second look.) As usual, it's local, as well. Go discuss on our forum!

You Look Fabulous.

The Bungie Weekly Update is full of interesting tidbits - changes are coming in how both Special Ammo and Heavy Ammo will be handled in the Crucible, and it behooves you to read this stuff sooner than later. Also, Locks for your special gear, helmets in the Tower, Bungie men in kilts, and competition for charity. And cool movies. Go read! (It's local, too.) There's a substantial thread if you wanna talk.
