This Week at Bungie – 9/22/2022 > News

Our Player Support team is incredible, as we say every week. They are the best of the best when it comes to getting down into the trenches and making magic happen. For this week, we’re previewing today’s hotfix that addresses things like the 120Hz deciding to go AWOL and PlayStation 4 startup issues. The team is back once more to break it all down for you. Here’s their report.


Today, Hotfix was released to the world. Below is a list of some of the issues that were resolved with this hotfix:

  • PlayStation 4s may crash at the title screen after pre-ordering Lightfall.
  • The 120Hz refresh rate option is missing on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
  • Seismic Strike moves the camera to first person view instead of third person view.


We are currently investigating an issue where players will mistakenly receive an early match quit pop-up when launching directly into another activity from the Crucible post-match screen. Players will not receive a penalty when this occurs. Pop-ups can be mitigated by returning to orbit prior to launching into a new activity.


While we continue investigating various known issues, here is a list of the latest issues that were reported to us in our #Help forum:
  • The Queen’s Wrath perk on the Wish-Ender Exotic Bow works inconsistently on certain PvP maps.
  • The Nine Lives Ghost Shell is missing flavor text.
  • Duplicate shader rewards can drop from Bright Engrams.
  • Public event dialogue audio on Nessus does not properly trigger when participating in an event.
  • The turrets in the ketch crash activity are overly bright.
  • Players may be killed when activating the bells in Duality.

Bruno: Ivan is enjoying some well-deserved time off, so I’m in charge of the movies this time. Apparently, that means lots of animation. I’m always amazed by the incredible talent among our community artists and that we can have both an intense anime ending and a funny homage to the Hive pantheon in the same week.

Movie of the week: Now do the opening!

Movie of the week: Smol Xivu is smol

hippie: We’ve got pirates. We’ve got art. We’ve got… Sprite? Right, well, that’s… uh, that’s a thing. It’s been rad to see how excited Guardians have been about Season of Plunder and taking over pirate groups whilst making Eido proud. Getting to unclench those shoulders after the mentally-hefty Season of the Haunted has been a welcome treat, and it’s been hilarious watching all the ways y’all have been leaning into the silliness. Like with Sprote. Wow, nice segue, Hippy.


Art of the week: Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of Sprite*

Sam: It’s been a few weeks since I’ve last shared a Warlock (I know, c’mon, Sam, you call yourself a Warlock main…), but this week we have something so hauntingly beautiful we think all can be forgiven.

Art of the week: Even death may die.

hippie: Sliding in one more time with a bonus piece of art, because I think we’ve all deserved a reminder that rest is important and chillin’ is good for your mental health. Treat yo’ self.

Bbb-bonus Art of the Week: Take a second and unwind

And that’s a wrap! Only one more TWAB to go before we get spooky in October! We’ve already given the Festival of the Lost dates for this year in a previous TWAB, but we have a few more things to share about that before we get to bust out the festive masks once more. Because let’s be honest, those masks—they are a gift from the gods. Or from our design team, you know… either/or.

A moment of silence for him:
