Destiny 2 Update 2.0.5 Patch Notes Preview

This  Tuesday, October 30th, Destiny 2 will receive Update 2.0.5. This update includes a number of Quality of Life changes including a change to Masterwork Cores and exotic duplicate protection.

Complete patch notes should be posted on Tuesday at 11am CT, but for now check out this preview of changes coming in the update courtesy of this week’s This Week At Bungie post on

  • Banshee-44 will accept up to 25 Gunsmith Materials at a time
  • Removing the hold time for the Spider’s material exchange interactions
  • Increasing stack size of Ghost Fragments from 10 to 20
  • Reduced shader dismantle time from 1 sec. to 0.25 secs.
Exotic Duplicate Weighting
  • When you’re receiving an Exotic, we will take into account all Exotics you’ve found, and weight them against Exotics you have yet to acquire; this lowers the chances of receiving Exotics you already own
  • Exotics that you do not yet own will be individually weighted much higher than duplicate Exotics
  • When receiving duplicate Exotics, you will be more likely to earn armor pieces, as they have randomly rolled perks
  • Exotic quest weapons are being removed from the Exotic engram loot pool
Enhancement Cores
  • Masterwork Cores will be renamed Enhancement Cores
  • More sources will award Enhancement Cores; they will be added to Scrapper Bounties and six of the Spider’s weekly bounties
  • Enhancement Cores will be more visible in the loot feed
Exotic Tuning
  • Wish-Ender
      • Increasing base damage
      • Fixing an issue where the Broadhead perk would not properly activate under certain circumstances, which would result in a loss of damage
  • Malfeasance
      • Increasing Explosive Shadow detonation damage
      • Increasing damage against Taken and invaders
Trace Rifles
  • Will spawn with 50 ammo in the Crucible
  • Will benefit from the following armor perks:
      • Auto Rifle Loader
      • Unflinching Auto Rifle Aim
      • Auto Rifle Targeting
      • Precision Weapon Targeting
      • Auto Rifle Dexterity

This update will also increase the spawn chance of the Malfeasance boss in Gambit. To coincide with that, next week is bonus Infamy points.
