Latest Destiny 2 patch tweaks Crucible, Faction Rally Tokens and more

Destiny 2 players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC should be aware that a patch has been released that brings alterations to a number of game features.

Console players can look forward to quite a few Crucible changes in patch 1.0.6, as well as some tweaks to Faction Rallies and general fixes. 

Faction Rally Tokens have been changed with this patch. The changes include how you earn them and how many you earn at a time. As for Crucible, the Mercy rule has been broadened, allowing a wider range of score to trigger it. 

PC players can look forward to two issues being fixed with the 1.0.6.1 patch, the issue where Clan rosters were not showing properly and the issue that caused gradual performance degradation over time.
