Since the launch of the Taken King, many players have complained about the lessened rewards for one of Destiny’s hardest endgame activities, the Nightfall Strike. But now, with a hot fix,, Bungie hopes to change that. With rewards available only once a week, players felt cheated when the activity began giving substantially less appealing gear upon completion.

With the same patch that happens to set up the Hard Mode Raid, Bungie has seen to a handful of issues that have plagued the Destiny in the recent months. Check out the full list of changes, including details on the light requirement and rewards for Hard Mode, below.
