The Destiny 2.4.1. Update, Is it Enough?

The Destiny 2.4.1. update has finally arrived along with the new Wrath of the Machine (WOTM) Hard Raid. Players can now progress their guardians even further to a new max light level of 400. As discussed previously in our Rise of Iron review, there were a few issues with progression after reaching a light level of 365 and Bungie has addressed some of those issues in this update. A lot of players were able to progress far enough to attempt the new raid due to the recent Iron Banner event, but for those who missed it, you are in luck.


The 2.4.1. update will allow many reward sources to increase their maximum Light level up to 400, such as: Strike Hoards, Nightfall, Exotic Engrams, Trials of Osiris, Crucible, and Iron Banner. The Archon’s Forge, Heroic SIVA Strike playlist, and Legendary Engrams have a new light level cap of 385. Rare Engrams and the regular SIVA Strike Playlist will provide rewards up to 365 Light. Bungie sweetened the deal even more by leaving the recommended Light for these activities the same, with the exception of Nightfall (recommended light now 380). Progression to the recommended light level to even attempt the Heroic WOTM raid will be a lot less frustrating than it was for Normal WOTM. The Raids, Trials of Osiris, and Iron Banner activities will now yield rewards a lot higher in Light on average, compared to your current Light level.

Are you struggling to find Artifacts and Ghosts? Look no further Guardian, these elusive items have been added to Archon’s Forge completion rewards and can now drop up to 400 Light. Eris Morn & Faction Packages have also received a significant boost to the drop rate of Ghosts and Artifacts.


Just as I was about to lose interest in Destiny and switch over to Battlefield 1 or Mafia III, Bungie drops a sweet new update to reel players back in. But with the progression flood gates now wide open, will a new Light level cap of 400 be enough to keep players from leaving to one of the many new AAA titles set to be released this fall?
