Bungie Weekly Update - Sparrows and Banners

DeeJ posted the latest Bungie Weekly Update yesterday, right on time - as you might expect, it spends a little time on the Sparrow Racing League, which runs for another week and a half. (Want to know where you fit, with your fastest race times? They've got you covered. At least, they do if you're in the top half of the racers.) There's also information about the next Iron Banner event, dropping the day that SRL goes offline - you can see the loot that will be available during that competition. The list of bug/problem issues (and their fixes) is pretty substantial this week. And finally (but certainly not least), Cozmo's collection of fan films is full of Twilight Garrisons... and it's beautiful. (The 'Wily Titan' video tells me that in the right hands, this is an amazing piece of gear... but I'm pretty sure that I'd bounce myself off an edge in the first 10 seconds.) As always, you can read our local copy if you'd rather.

It's Bungie Info Week!

We're a bit slow this week, but there's lot of new content for you on Patch 2.1.0 went live on Tuesday - you can read the full patch notes (edited today, in fact) there, or here, in our local archive. Some of the damage numbers were a bit wonky (and have been edited a couple of times now); explanations for these changes can be found in today's Bungie Weekly Update (also with a local copy). There's a boatload of other good stuff in there, too - including a piece from Urk which should allay your fears if you were one of the people who worried that 2016 would be full of events like the Sparrow Racing League, but no other substantial content. Finally, there was a Hot Fix this morning, correcting some unexpected behaviors brought on by the patch. (This is local, too.) Go read it all!

Weekly Update, a little late

The current Bungie Weekly Update went live yesterday (as did our local copy), but we neglected to let you know here on the front page. Sorry! Go read it now, because it's chock-full of useful info, most importantly regarding the December update. Lots of weapons tweaks, more exotic engrams, goodies for helpful friends, and more! (The community movies this week are pretty good, too.)

BWU - November 12, 2015

Deej is still on vacation, but Cozmo stepped up to make sure we don't go a Thursday without a Bungie Weekly Update!  The rundown is that we will be getting the "November" update sometime next week, which will bring weapon parts for sale from Banshee, additional items such as legendary swords for sale from Shaxx, some changes to crucible bounties, and finally a true fix to the Nightstalker's Quiver glitch.  Also, prepare yourselves for Iron Banner which will be returning on Tuesday, this time with 100% less Control zones!

As always, a local copy is available to read here as well.

BWU - Teases of Previews of Updates

Bungie's picked up on the scarcities many of us have been feeling with weapon parts and in this week's update you'll see what they're going to be doing about it. Spoiler: the gunsmith is getting some new duties. There's also a new statistics section and the usual videos of the week, etc. (Local copy here and ChrisTheeCrappy brought it up in our forum here.)

Bungie Weekly Update - October 22

Bungie's posted this week's Update on - you should read it. They summarize the hotfix this week, discuss updates in Crucible gameplay, remind you that King's Fall Hard Mode launches tomorrow, nag you to keep your space clean, remind you of places to go for help, and show off some great fan vids. (The one below had me in stitches.) Go read (it's local, too) - then go discuss on our forum.

Bungie (Last-) Weekly Update

Yeah, so, I'm not even sure we can consider this a news site; we don't get to the front page often enough. There've been a few fun things over the past few days, though, so let's clear them out. First up: last week, on Thursday, as usual, Bungie posted the Weekly Update. (And, as usual, we localized it at that point. We just forgot to tell you about it.) It's a decent read; it contains a bunch of tidbits you should know. There's information about the Eververse Trading Company (launching tomorrow, actually), there's info about last week's drop of the Sleeper Simulant (if you didn't snag one, the mission - and its prerequisites - will be available periodically going forward), there's info about an upcoming Shotgun nerf. There's a bunch of other stuff, too, but one more thing worth noting specifically - buried in the PVP change log is a link to a really interesting podcast from the Crucible Radio folks - Bungie Senior Designer Jon Weisnewski was a guest, and the discussion was fascinating for folks looking for insight into how Bungie makes some of the decisions they make. Really worth your time. Go read the whole thing - this only touched on the high points!

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.

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.)
