Remember that loot issue Destiny 2 players have been dealing with? No, not the one caused from the Clan XP Engram bug, the other one, the bug preventing players from collecting Nightfall exclusive rewards. Well, it appears that Bungie has begun working on the issue, but won’t be able to remedy the situation this week.
According to the Bungie Help Twitter, the team is currently evaluating a fix for the Nightfall bug. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there is a firm date for a proper solution. Instead, Bungie has promised to have more information on the status of the fix some time next week.
We have identified the issue preventing Nightfall Unique Rewards from dropping for base Destiny 2 and Curse of Osiris strikes. We are currently evaluating a fix, and will have more information next week on when this expected to be resolved.

Unfortunately, this won’t help Destiny 2 players who were hoping to get their hands on the DFA Hand Cannon exclusive to this week’s strike. Some claim they had spent hours attempting to get the weapon, only to realize that RNG was not the only thing preventing it from dropping. If the bug is resolved by next week, players are hoping Bungie decides to run the same Nightfall strike again to allow another shot at the weapon, but the company has made no such promise. If the problem persists into next week, it is highly advised that players not attempt to obtain the next Nightfall item until Bungie gives the all clear.
In other frustrating Destiny 2 news, despite receiving criticism for the Iron Banner bundle that locked the free event’s special “Salute of the Lords” emote behind a microtransation, it appears that Bungie has decided to add another such bundle for the upcoming Faction Rally event. This is fanning fears that the upcoming bundle will also include exclusive emotes that players will have to pay for to obtain. Even though Bungie has made strides to make cosmetic drops a touch easier to obtain with the Prismatic Matrix, it appears that the company is using in-game events to squeeze even more money out of players who are still consistently dealing with the game’s many bugs.
Destiny 2 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
