There might be a reason you haven’t been able to claim Destiny 2’s Eyes of Tomorrow Exotic rocket launcher yet. The top-tier reward for clearing out the Deep Stone Crypt, Destiny 2’s newest raid, hasn’t been dropping with quite the frequency it should for players, but that’ll be fixed–along with the weapon’s damage output–in an update to the game slated for March 23.
Bungie detailed the issue in its This Week at Bungie blog post, which includes some information about changes coming with Hotfix 188.8.131.52. One of those changes is to fix the bad luck protection in the Deep Stone Crypt raid, which will increase the chances of the Eyes of Tomorrow rocket launcher dropping for everyone who plays it but hasn’t yet received one. Bungie also acknowledged that the damage Eyes of Tomorrow does to enemies has been inadvertently lowered by another past update, and that’ll be fixed in Hotfix 184.108.40.206 as well.
The drop rates for Eyes of Tomorrow is intentionally set low, encouraging players to revisit the Deep Stone Crypt raid week after week. However, the more times you clear the raid, the more you’re supposed to build up “bad luck protection” against missing out on the Exotic. Essentially, that means your chances of getting Eyes of Tomorrow are supposed to increase each time you clear the raid until, theoretically, your protection reaches 100%.
The trouble is, Bungie’s bad luck protection for the raid was getting applied per character, rather than per account. So if you ran Deep Stone Crypt on your Hunter, then returned and ran it again on your Titan, the two characters could theoretically have different levels of bad luck protection. And that meant that players who haven’t yet received the rocket launcher have longer odds than they should.
There are a few other minor bug fixes coming with Hotfix 220.127.116.11, as well as a bunch of balancing changes to Destiny 2’s Stasis abilities that Bungie detailed previously. The TWAB also notes that a new Iron Banner competitive event kicks off on March 23, which will give you more chances at Pinnacle loot drops, helping you gear up to take on the game’s new Grandmaster-level Nightfall: The Ordeal Strikes.
