    Hotfix 2.5.0.2 is Destiny's newest update and is now officially live on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and we have provided below the full patch details of the update. Now Special Weapon ammo is available for players who are starting a Crucible match which can be dropped when you die unless you're using a Sidearm. Crates with Special ammo now respawn every 60 seconds but provide ammo to teammates within 75 meters of it, rather than 100.
