During the last days, Destiny 2 has been affected by a bug that is as funny as it is terrifying. If you end up getting wiped during a fight against Golgoroth, a boss that appears in the middle of the recently resurrected King’s Fall Raid, the ogre will emit a nightmare scream.
Last week, Bungie debuted Destiny 2Season 18, Season of the Plunder. It adds a number of truly mind-blowing new changes, including a wave of high-powered weapons, updates to the game’s esoteric leveling system, a compelling cast of supporting characters, and sadly, an ongoing compromise with the dubious crafting system. (See Ethan’s full account of what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s ugly for all the details.) Season of the Plunder is meant to lay the groundwork for Destiny 2coming soon light fall expansion, next spring.
On Friday, Bungie relaunched DestinyThe King’s Fall raid, which was released in 2015 as part of the first game taken king expansion. It is regularly touted among fans as one of the best raids Bungie has released for Destiny 2. There is only one small matter.
“We are aware of an issue where Golgoroth can sometimes produce an extremely loud roar in the King’s Fall raid,” said Bungie Support. wrote on Twitter. “It is recommended to reduce the audio output when fighting Golgoroth until a fix can be implemented.”
I know what you’re thinking, because I thought so too: It can’t be that bad, right? Yeah, about that… (Lowers the volume, seriously.)
The perfect thing to listen to at 2am with full volume on headphones 👍 pic.twitter.com/nOevzfAaCu

The audio only seems to kick in when you and your fire time “clean up” or die, which can happen if you don’t pay attention to specific rules, including eagle-eyed attention to a timer that causes players to explode, in the Fight. against Golgoroth. On the plus side, the fight itself isn’t negatively affected by these audio issues; this is purely an audio bug.
For the most part, players seem to be taking the mistake in stride. Many of the responses to Bungie’s initial statement about the bug are from players sharing memes (no need to scroll far to find a shrek roar), jokeseither videos of him in action along with ironic and incredulous reactions. A person described bug clips as “the funniest things I’ve seen in months.”

Bungie has not detailed a timeline for a fix. Representatives for the study did not respond to a request for comment in time for publication. Meanwhile, RRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWRRRRRR.
