Today’s Destiny Update 1.2.0.2

Destiny update 1.2.0.2 is live, bringing some requested changes to the first-person shooter, according to a post on developer Bungie’s official site.Perhaps the biggest and most welcome news concerns treasure keys. Since House of Wolves’ release, players have been hunting the randomly dropped items to unlock the biggest chests and score the biggest loot in the Prison of Elders arena mode. Drops were rare, and some Guardians spent hours running between public events and finding exploits in the hopes of a drop.

Treasure Keys are now a guaranteed drop in each week’s Wanted Fallen Bounty, and developer Bungie also increased their drop rate from small chests at the Prison of Elders’ end and from Ether Chests.

Update 1.2.0.2’s tweaks hit all corners of the solar system, from bounties to weapons. You can get the details from Bungie below.
