As it’s only a small hotfix, the servers will not be taken offline for a number of hours. Instead, Guardians already in the game may be returned to the login screen to update their game or completely restart their Battle.net client to initiate the download.
Players may also encounter “Error Code Sheep” if attempting to form a Fireteam with someone who hasn’t downloaded the hotfix. So, if you’re suddenly booted to the login screen and your friend isn’t, make sure you both exit the game to get the update.
This update will be welcome news to PC players who’ve reported sudden FPS drops or micro-stutters when participating in both PVE and PVP activities.
Although Destiny 2 on the PC is incredibly smooth for the most part, Hotfix 188.8.131.52 should hopefully iron out frame rate inconsistencies and make the game run even better.
