Not the biggest update, but an important one.

Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals is in full swing, and Bungie has released a new patch for the loot-shooter.

Patch 2.9.1 isn't a sizeable update, but makes handy tweaks to the Contact Public event, as well as other aspects of the game.

It also removes the caps on rewards gained from completing raids. You can read more about that here.

Here's what it does.
