Bungie's upcoming update for Destiny 2 is set to introduce some changes to Arbalest exotic, which is now entering the general exotic pool, meaning you won't be able to purchase anymore. On top of that, the patch brings few bug fixes.

Destiny 2 is set to receive another weekly patch and the developer Bungie have detailed all the changes and additions that players can expect from the 2.2.2 update. While the upcoming update is not as massive as some of the earlier ones, it still includes a couple of notable changes and one of them is regarding the Arbalest exotic, which was introduced in Spring celebration event The Revelry.

As you may know, on Tuesday, 07 May 2019, at the weekly reset, the Revelry event will officially end which means that you won't be able to buy the Arbalest exotic from Eva Levante and it will only be available as a drop from loot sources.

Bungie also mentioned the issue where players who don't own the Forsaken Annual Pass cannot reclaim the weapon from their collection and Arbalest will not be available to these players as a loot drop. The problem is currently being investigated and the devs are working to make Arbalest available to all players in one of the future updates.

On top of the changes for Arbalest, Bungie also included a few fixes for various issues. These include a fix for an issue where Dreaming City lore was not being awarded once you complete an Ascendant Challenge. An issue where Chaos Reach would not deal damage to enemies who are affected by status effects such as Soul Devour or Hunter Tethers has also been addressed while Warlock will now be able to Blink after going through the portal as Bungie also took care of that one.

Combination Blow bug which unintentionally magnified damage of Arc Staff Super attacks has been fixed just like an issue where the Iron Ruby shader was not dropping.
