Bungie has started rolling out its first Destiny update of the New Year. The patch seems to be pretty large and contains some much needed bug fixes and removes many of the exploits that came with the The Dark Below Expansion.

Since the launch of the games first major expansion ‘The Dark Below’ back in December, a few players have figured out numerous ways to get around whole sections of the Crota’s End raid. The update has patched the raid so players will not be able to use this exploit anymore. The update also adds Level 32 weapon drops to the Vault of Glass as well as some random bug fixes.

You can check out the full list of patch notes below:
