TWAB June 16 Update

This week at Bungie was a relatively calm and light week but still offered information on Zone control, Bungie’s Pride Strike Team, and a few support issues.

Zone control will become available in Crucible Labs starting next week. After that, it will continue to stick around for the rest of Season of the Haunted except for during Iron Banner. As the name says, the only way to score points in this traditional objective mode is to control those zones. While the initial capture of a zone will reward points, it is far more valuable to keep a zone continuously. The first team to 125 points wins.

In other news, back in 2017 Bungie’s Pride Strike Team was formed. Many positive steps were made such as sponsoring the Seattle Pride parade for several years in a row, releasing Bungie’s first inclusion, diversity, and equity pin/emblem combo, and creating a series that pointed out local LGBTQIA+ owned businesses. Then, in 2021, Bungie released its first free ID&E-related emblem. Now, as of May 31, 2022, Bungie has raised almost $480,000 just from their Pride pin. Bungie has more fun plans to celebrate Pride at Bungie even after June, because as they said theirselves, “We’re not gay just one month of the year.”

As of now, the Bungie team is currently investigating an issue where some Exotic armor pieces are not granting the advertised airborne effectiveness start correctly when equipped/ The affected pieces are as follows: Sealed Ahamkara Grasps, Lion Rampant, Peacekeeper, Peregrine Greaves, and Wings of Sacred Dawn.

Well, that is all for this week at Bungie! If readers would like to dive into the more creative side and see some fan-made artwork and videos, please check out the full report on Bungie’s site.
