Destiny 2 Weekly Reset (10.22 – 10.29)

DESTINY 2 WEEKLY RESET (Oct 22 – Oct 29)


This Week:

  • Nightmare Hunts Master difficulty is now unlocked! (Requires Shadowkeep)
  • Exotic Quest for Leviathan’s Breath Bow is live! (Requires Season of the Undying pass)
  • EDZ is the weekly Flashpoint and Solar is the weekly Singe.
  • All players will gain increased Infamy in Gambit and Gambit Prime.
  • Breakthrough and Mayhem have returned to the Crucible playlist.
  • Note about Black Armory Forges: After someone brought up adding the forge rotation to my Weekly Reset Infographic, I looked into the rotation and it does seem pretty consistent so I’ll either be adding it to the Weekly Reset or making a new one just for Black Armory. For now, I’ll list them here. Here is what I have for the rotation: Bergusia > Volundr > GoFannon > Izanami (after Izanami it goes back to Bergusia and so on). Please keep in mind there is a chance this order could change.


Coming Soon…

  • Oct 29: Festival of the Lost (Seasonal Special Event) and new PvP mode Momentum Control arrives for ALL players! As well as the new Dungeon and Exotic Quest for Xenophage arrive (both require Shadowkeep).
  • Nov 05: Garden of Salvation raid challenges arrive (Requires Shadowkeep)
