Destiny 2 is getting a hotfix today.

Destiny 2 Season of the Worthy hasn't been the most well-received update to the loot shooter/RPG hybrid, but another hotfix is coming.

Hotfix 2.8.1.2 lands today, May 18, and offers multiple fixes – but nothing for the bugged "The Lie" questline.

ERROR CODES

On Friday, May 8, a potential fix was implemented for those experiencing frequent WATERCRESS error codes. Since May 8, we have been closely monitoring WATERCRESS reports and have noticed a significant decrease in WATERCRESS errors appearing. While we continue to progress toward a resolution, we recommend anyone continuing to experience WATERCRESS errors to report in our #Help forum.

We are continuing to monitor increases in BEETLE, RABBIT, BEAVER, and ANTEATER error codes.
