While there seems to be no set date, the following issues are noted and acknowledged by the developers and they are working hard to fix them. If you want to take a look at a list of all the errors and issues that are going to be fixed in the coming updates, you can find them down below. 

Destiny 2 The Witch Queen Known Issues and Workarounds

Here’s a list of all the official known issues currently present in the game. If you are facing any other bug or crashing in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, please let us know in the comments and we’ll add it here! Hopefully, these will be picked up by the developers and will be fixed.

When starting the PsiOps Battlegrounds playlist, players will notice that the recommended Power Level does not show. The reason for this is unknown but the developers have taken note of this issue. If you are curious, the current level for this playlist is 1500.

Overload Artifact Issues

If you are using the Overload Artifact on auto rifles and SMGs, you’ll see that they do not successfully disrupt the health regeneration of Overload Champions after they are stunned. This seems to be quite a common issue as most players are facing it. Worry not because it will be solved in an upcoming hotfix.

FPS Drops on Xbox

Some players have reported that the yare facing FPS drops when they open the inventory screen. However, the circumstances seem to be quite specific. If your inventory is full and you open it, your FPS will drop. What’s weird is that this only seems to be happening on the Xbox consoles.

Missing Icons for Buffs and Debuffs

This seems to be a common bug that most players are facing. While this isn’t exactly game-breaking, it does cause a problem for the person playing. The exact reason is not known yet but the developers are well aware of it and are working hard to fix it.

Kill Tracker Not Working As Intended

If you kill enemies using the Glaive, it will not count in the kill tracker for some reason. On top of that, enemies that have the Volatile debuff are also not counting in the bounty progress. This can be problematic since you don’t know when this bug happens. However, it will be fixed in an upcoming hotfix.

  1. In the first story mission when I die the game crashes and I need to log back in… Reset my PlayStation checked for updates nothing working.

      • Same for me. PS4 pro. Tried resetting cash now doing a full uninstall and reinstall… Only thing that I could play without crashing was dares of eternity.

    • I’m having the same issue. Whenever I’m in a restricted area and die, my whole game crashes and I have to re log back in. And now it’s to the point where my game crashes when I’m just trying to go to the enclave.

      • Yup exactly .PS4 Pro here. Did the first several story missions without dying as every death would boot me. Now can’t go into any missions without crash at start.

  2. I’m having an issue that every time I try to go back to the enclave to do the next mission, d2 crashes, it’s done this about 10 times before I gave up trying to start, I don’t see anyone else talking about it but hopefully someone else has an idea of what’s going on

  3. Game would crash if I died in a restricted space. I made it through the first mission and now I cannot go to the enclave without the game crashing

  4. Ps4 pro, some pretty weird bugs here. Nothing causing crashes but I did have to force an update after it started registering downloaded info as error and broke the title screen. In game, past that after i’d updated even though it didn’t say it needed one- all my armor shines as if it’s newly acquired and this never goes away no matter what I do. Also a lotta the quest text you get at vendors straight up doesn’t exist- It’ll just pause my interaction to show me a blank space and an option to dismiss.

  5. Have which queen on Ps5 but can’t access it on Xbox says I need to purchase. Haven’t had to buy a copy for both before as they are linked. Anyone else having this issue? In game store says it’s purchased but needs to be bought on Microsoft store

  6. Xbox Series S. Got to the final boss fight near the end, after killing the Lightbearer Acolyte and the Lightbearer Knight the Lightbearer Wizard disappeared without a trace. Since the boss fight won’t continue until she’s dead, guess I have to restart the fight :/

  7. Did not receive rewards for finishing campaign mode on legendary. Not seeing tier 2 deepsight in miasma location for dead scorn quest.

  8. I have xbox one x. I seem to be getting large grey areas. Title screen and tower and also randomly through patrols and story missions. So annoying. Possibly fps problem all other games and bluray are fine

  9. When replaying ‘The Arrival’ mission in order to complete the triumph (Triumphs->Throne World->The Witch Queen->The Arrival), it does not give quest completion. May be a bug with the Artifact of the Black Fleet that is picked up, may be an issue where her prevention of getting the chest bugs. Who knows?

  10. When replaying ‘The Arrival’ mission in order to complete the triumph (Triumphs->Throne World->The Witch Queen->The Arrival), it does not give quest completion. May be a bug with the Artifact of the Black Fleet that is picked up, may be an issue where her prevention of getting the chest bugs. Who knows?

  11. I have been trying to complete the triumph ascendant bounty hunter for 4 days, each daily reset I go to the throne world and annoyingly enough the deepsight keeps spawning in the canal and not in quagmire or Miasma.

    Is there a bug or something, bungie please investigate this
