Destiny update 1.2.0.2 now available, fixes Prison of Elders and more

Bungie has rolled out yet another update for its shared-world shooter, Destiny, bringing with it a plethora of tweaks ranging from weapon, item and mission fixes in light of the release of House of Wolves.


The update is available now and will automatically begin downloading once you boot up Destiny. It’s not a large update either, so don’t sweat the waiting time.
