If you plan on firing up Destiny today, you’ll find a new update making its way to your console of choice. Among the improvements and features introduced by Bungie in today’s update are the shiny new Reputation Panel, matchmaking for the Weekly Heroic Strike, enhancements to weapon balance, and a fix that ensures all of your precious heavy ammo is preserved no matter where your adventures take you and what befalls your Guardian.
First up, the Reputation Panel gives players the ability to check their current standings with each of Destiny’s factions anytime, anywhere from right within the inventory menu. It’s now easier than ever to maximize your time and work toward the next rank and rewards for your faction of choice.
Update 1.1.1 also adds matchmaking for the Weekly Heroic Strike, making it simpler to brave the battles within and reap the rewards regardless of whether you’ve got a Fireteam’s worth of friends online and available. Matchmaking has been applied to all difficulty levels, so be brave and take on new challenges knowing you’ve got Guardians watching your back.
The Destiny arsenal is also getting some fine-tuning to improve the variety and effectiveness of various weapon classes. Check out an exhaustive rundown of the changes over at Bungie.net. Lastly, the update will fix an issue where heavy ammunition is sometimes lost in certain circumstances, such as when your character dies, returns to orbit, or encounters a cut scene.
