Happy TWABsday, Guardians! For this week's shenanigans, we have just a few things to cover including a little patch notes preview, but all in all, another rocking week. (There is a joke in here somewhere, just keep reading.) So, without further ado, the TWAB. 

Patch Notes Preview 

Earlier in the week, we were digging around in the “worldwide (internal) Bungie web” and found a bit of the patch notes for next week just floating around all by its lonesome, so we thought we would give you a tiny sneak peek at what we have lined up!  
  • To alleviate some of the pressure in acquiring Season of Plunder weapon patterns, the Double Perk Weapon Spoils Crew Upgrade will now give you a Deepsight modded weapon the first time you focus a weapon each week. 
  • The Deepsight modded weapon from the Hidden Compartment Crew Upgrade will now appropriately refresh at the weekly reset. 
      • This issue was a bit of a doozy to address, but the team rocked it out (I can’t stop, I'm sorry) and got a fix together in time for our hotfix next week.  
     

Rock Out with Prime Gaming 

We are back with our Prime Gaming update, and this month, we have a rocking emote to go alongside the Ghost, Sparrow, and ship.   
If you have an active Amazon Prime subscription, you can head on over to this page to read more on how to link your Bungie.net account and get your rewards. After that, you can skip over to Amanda Holiday in the Tower and grab your loot!
    • Rock Out – Exotic Emote 
    • Traitor Primus Shell – Exotic Ghost 
    • Dinas Emery – Exotic Sparrow 
    • DSV-Huygens IX – Legendary Ship

Ambition and Birthright Enter the Chat 

Grandmaster Nightfalls are returning next week, bringing some of our most challenging PvE content back into the mix. Here's your next shot to finish up your Conqueror title (or even gild it Guardian, you can do it!) and earn some awesome loot. Speaking of loot, we wanted to give you a preview of the Adept weapons you can earn this Season. Introducing for the first time as Adept weapons, The Militia's Birthright and Mindbender's Ambition.

ACCESSING SEASON OF PLUNDER SEASON PASS 

Incorrect wording is displayed on the Season 18 Season Pass for players who have not completed the introductory mission. Right now, it is telling players that have already purchased the Season Pass they need the Season Pass to access Plundered Umbral Energy. This is incorrect. In addition to owning the Season Pass, players must do the following to acquire Plundered Umbral Energy:  
  1. Complete the Salvage and Salvation mission in the H.E.L.M.  
  2. Speak to Spider in the Eliksni Quarter  
  3. Complete the Ahoy and Aweigh quest  
  4. Visit the Star Chart in the H.E.L.M.  
  5. Acquire the Sails of the Shipstealer and Captain's Atlas quests  
  6. Claim Plundered Umbral Energy in the Season Pass 

KNOWN ISSUES 

While we continue investigating various known issues, here is a list of the latest issues that were reported to us in our #Help forum
  • The Hidden Compartment Crew Upgrade drops rewards at 1350 Power. 
  • The Sundered Flesh shader is not applying to weapons, armor, and other items as intended.

Zoomies of the Week 

 

Hippy: It’s got the juice! It’s corn. It’s Destiny. What more could you want? OK, but real talk, the kid that went viral for his love of corn is a wholesome gem of a person that we should protect at all costs. If for nothing else than the incredible meme power that his passion has had. We’ve got songs, we’ve got memes, we’ve got oddball TikTok deep-dives. Corn Kid is a phenomenon! And he’s also inspired one of the best things I’ve seen all year because this MOTW pick is a work of art. Art, I say.  
Anyway, have some corn!  
Movie of the Week: Scorn on the Cobb 
Sam: “Stars spinning every time I hit a wall” is a lyric that I have been singing since this video popped up on my Twitter feed earlier this week, and I am so glad it did. There is just something about another Guardian understanding the challenges of controlling your Sparrow that really means something special. Plus, the creativity behind the lyrics, and the way the video just keeps a smile on your face the whole time, I could go on and on. Good job, Guardians.  

Movie of the Week: Zoom, Splat 

Servitors are Cute 

 
Bruno: Warlocks are cool. Who doesn't love a bookworm that can disintegrate you with a small black hole? Their new Arc 3.0 melee is also incredible (tell that to my Trials opponents last weekend) and let's not deny how useful the Well of Radiance is in most activities. That said, nothing beats flying. Being able to fly and use a flaming sword is still one of the coolest things Warlocks can do. Signed, a Hunter main.  
Art of the Week: Shine bright like a Warlock  Ivan: I’ve always associated Europa with exploration and tranquility. And that's something Aviixe managed to capture perfectly! Now you have the inspiration to grab your buddies, throw on Stasis, and finish all those Europa Triumphs you left for later. The time has come! 
Art of the Week: Exploring Europa 

Bonus Art of the Week: Always be generous and give those First Mates their hard-earned, well-deserved, and maybe citric-tasting, Glimmer. Ye hear me, matey?  And don’t forget to tag us on social media using #MOTW, #AOTW, or #Destiny2Art, or use our Creations page, so we can find you! 
And there we have it! But one last thing before we go. We just wanted to give a thank you to the community at large for your “where TWAB?” posts. Truly, so many of them are shared internally and continue to make us smile week after week with your cleverness, creativity, and kindness.  Thank you, Guardians. 

Stay crafty, Guardians!
