Destiny Daily 11/17/14: New 2.44GB Update, Patch 1.0.3. Notes, Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily

Just as I was going into Destiny, I got an application update screen. Cool, I thought. Shouldn’t take long. Then I saw the size: 2.44GB and started to get excited. Of course since PS4 firmware 2.0, downloads have been painfully slow. So I had to routinely pause and unpause the download to get it to speed up. Fix your stuff Sony.

Anyway, this is a really big update. Patch notes will be listed at the end of this post as soon as Bungie releases them. For now, here are the bounties for 11/17:

Daily Heroic Mission: A Rising Tide

Location: Meridian Bay, Mars

Description:

  • Survival is not guaranteed. Only by demonstrating great skill will you triumph against a relentless foe.

Modifiers:

  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • JUGGLER – No ammo drops for your equipped weapon.

Rewards:

  • Cryptarch Engram
  • Vanguard Marks +5
  • +4800 XP (lvl 20) l +6000 XP (lvl 24) l +7500 XP (lvl 28)
  • Ascendant Material (lvl 24) l 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 28)

This is the mission where you go into the subway station on Mars and kill a lot of Vex. You should bring a good sniper rife, preferably Ice Breaker (because of the Juggler modifier), to take down the transport/time gates quickly. Not hard at all.
