Stasis in Destiny 2 has undergone significant changes, and with Shatter Dive dominating the Trials of Osiris, a player discovered an unusual bug with it.
Destiny 2 is about to enter the fifth week of Season of the Lost, and with 155 days until the release of The Witch Queen, now is as good a time as any to discuss Darkness subclasses. There is currently only one in the game, Stasis, but Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2 players will get a new Darkness subclass with Lightfall and, presumably, another with The Final Shape. This is significant because it implies that when Light subclasses 2.0 are released next year, they will most likely have a significant impact on the game.
Meanwhile, Stasis has seen extensive use in Destiny 2 thus far, and thanks to its Aspects and Fragments, it allows players to customise what their characters do. However, Stasis has undergone significant changes since its introduction in Beyond Light, owing to the game’s lack of separate sandboxes for PVE and PVP. In fact, most changes to Stasis were made in response to issues that arose in the Crucible and Trials of Osiris.
IRonin2296, a Destiny 2 player and Redditor, discovered an odd interaction between the Revenant Hunters’ Shatter Dive and enemy Glacier Grenades. The player shows a video of themselves using Shatter Drive on an enemy Titan’s Glacier Grenade and successfully and unharmedly destroying the crystals. The Hunter then throws a Glacier Grenade for the Titan to slide into via Cryoclasm, but the Titan destroys the crystals and is killed by the explosions.
With Shatter Dive being the talk of Trials of Osiris due to its incredible kill potential even without Stasis crystals to shatter, IRonin2296’s clip begs the question of whether or not this is intentional. Many players are currently requesting Shatter Dive nerfs on Destiny 2 subreddits, and they are gaining a lot of traction. What’s shown in the video isn’t confirmed to be a bug, but it’s worth noting that in the past, Shatter Diving into enemy crystals would also kill the Hunter.
With so many bugs plaguing the game in Season 15, it’s not uncommon for players to discover new ones. When paired with the bottom tree Dawnblade, the Necrotic Grip Warlock Exotic gloves chain poisons as well as burn damage and explosions. It’s unclear whether Bungie will take action on Shatterdive, but the community appears to be hoping so.
Destiny 2 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
