A new Season went live for Destiny 2, and with it, a new Aspect Quest, Aspect of Influence, also arrived. Completing the quest grants a powerful new Aspect to the Stasis subclass, but some users have reported a bug blocking their progress.
Aspect of Influence Destiny 2 Bug Explained
The Aspect of Influence quest asks players to go to the Well of Infinitude, the same place where players defeat Phylaks in Empire hunts. A line of small pyramids appear that players can damage using the Exotic Grenade Launcher Salvation's Grip. Damaging them leads to a larger pyramid where a wave of enemies show up, with a boss at the end for players to kill. However, in some instances, some of the smaller pyramids fail to appear, and progress for the quest is blocked.
For some occasions, simply leaving the Well of Infinitude and returning to the area can fix the issue and cause the pyramid to respawn, but for others, the problem can still persist. Some have fixed the issue by dropping and reacquiring the quest, however, there doesn't appear to be a guaranteed way of fixing it. It's not a huge issue in the grand scheme of things, as most players have completed the quest just fine, but it certainly is frustrating for the small population who've found their progress halted.
Unlike other aspect quests, Aspect of Influence is a lot more convenient as completing it once on one character will unlock it for all the other characters. Hopefully, Bungie can patch out this issue soon, as the new aspects are very powerful and fun to experiment with, and it's shame some players are blocked from them because of a bug.
