    Bungie rolled out a hotfix for Destiny today January 12th, which is said to fix the Crota-killing cheat found by gamers. This latest update will means that you can no longer cheese Crota.

    The full patch notes can be seen below courtesy of Bungie developer blog:

    The Dark Below infused Destiny with new content, along with some new issues that we have sought to correct. With this update, we’re paying special attention to the Crota’s End Raid - along with weapons, arenas, and rewards for other activities. Iron Banner is also being prepared to return.

    Activity Rewards
    • Fixed an issue with Ascendant Materials no longer being a possible reward for Daily gold-tier public events
    • In addition to other potential rewards, Weekly Nightfall Strikes can now award 9 or more Strange Coins

    PVP
    Maps
    • Added to the rotation for Control, Clash, and Iron Banner* playlists:

    Weapons
    • On the Sniper Rifle, Black Hammer, the Hive Breaker upgrade has been disabled until it is fixed to play nicely with the White Nail upgrade

      • The existing Pit treasure chest reward has moved to killing Ir Yut, the Deathsinger

      • Pillars of Light no longer launch players into the air when they explode
    • Bridge Encounter
      • Players will now be required to cross the bridge in order to complete the bridge encounter
      • Players will now be required to wait for the bridge to be completed prior to crossing with the sword
    • Deathsinger Encounter
      • Fixed a rare case where the Shriekers would not spawn, preventing players from reaching the Deathsinger
      • The Deathsinger now has a chance to drop Exotic weapons and armor, class pieces, and Radiant materials
    • Crota Encounter
      • Two Swordbearers will no longer spawn at the same time at the outset of the encounter
      • Crota will now recover from his kneeling state after a player quits
      • Fixed a bug that allowed players to remove the “Presence of Crota” using a Radiance Warlock’s Fireborn ability
      • Fixed a bug that made the Oversoul appear destroyed to some players in a Fireteam when it was actually still active
