Bungie has stepped up to provide necessary fixes and patches to its popular FPS game title Destiny with a Hot Fix update. The update will mark the end of cheats for Croat's End and will also be fixing the exploits.

The new update boasts of "paying special attention to weapons, arenas, and rewards for other activities," in Destiny. It also promises the return of Iron Banner, which is a Crucible event that runs for a limited time with level advantages being enabled.

The patch notes listed below includes some big changes coming for Vault of Glass and it will include Level 32 weapon drops, which will bring back some high level players back to the Raid. The update will see the 'LAN exploit' being removed in the Croat's end.

Other exploits that will be removed include the Pit Encounter maze where players could get past the Bridge Encounter by exploding lantern without even crossing the bridge.

The Dark Below was the first expansion to the game, which was released in December 2014. Destiny was released on 9 September, 2014 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
