Destiny Patch 2.0.1 Has Download Issues, Here’s a Workaround

Destiny’s latest patch 2.0.1 went live yesterday and brought shotgun nerf, new emotes via Eververse and more. However, something that we weren’t expecting was a weird bug that came with it.

Users are reporting that they are being asked to download 18GB of data with patch 2.0.1. In reality, this patch is only 500MB in size. Why are they being asked to download 18GB? It seems the entire update history of 18GB enters your download list.

But, the good news is that Bungie is on it and investigating the issue. It has also provided us with a workaround:

If you are encountering a ‘corrupted data’ error message, you may want to stop your download, clear your console cache, and then restart the download.

Some players are reporting that while the download says it’s a full 18 GB, it actually only downloading today’s small patch. This is the expected behavior for PlayStation 4 downloads. However, we are still investigating the reports from some players that they are being required to re-download the full 18 GB.

Try clearing your cache and see if that works for you. If you are encountering any other problems, let us know down below.
