News and Updates

Changes coming in Season 21


The system will be tuned for Season 21 to make it less likely for standard players to trigger farming protection.


Bungie is moving to Dominion as the core game mode for Trials in Season 21

  • Dominion offers a choice between playing Elimination and an objective-based game mode.
  • Objectives can allow more types of players to contribute to winning.
  • Games are on average 15% faster than standard Elimination games.
  • Dominion puts extreme passivity at a disadvantage by spawning the zone earlier and creating pressure for players to engage and fight earlier.
  • Objectives promote more varied engagements on the maps and push players to experience different engagement arenas on each map.
  • Dominion promotes a healthier sandbox variety in both weapons and subclasses.
  • Provides Bungie with more balancing levers to change the gameplay experience and make changes to maps more quickly to address concerns about flow or balance.
  • Switching to Dominion may make carrying other players to the Lighthouse a more difficult challenge, but the decision was made based on the bulk of all player experiences in the playlist.


Passage of Wealth and Passage of Mercy are getting an update next season.

  • The Passage of Wealth will now grant +75 Trials rep for every win, and an additional bonus for current major rank in Trials, up to +150 total. This encourages players to stay on the same card to take advantage of more reputation for wins later in the card. The previous Passage of Wealth granting increased reputation on wins 3, 5, and 7 on a card was at odds with the new system
  • The Passage of Mercy in Season 21 will forgive 2 losses if you have not yet been Flawless for the week. After going Flawless, the Passage of Mercy will revert to forgiving a single loss on each card. This gives all players a better chance of going Flawless for the first time each week, and players who can go Flawless without using both Mercies additional opportunities to play for extra rewards while their first card remains Flawless.


  • Step 1
    • Complete Competitive placement matches.
    • Get 50 kills in Competitive.
    • Raise your Power level.  
  • Step 2
    • Pick up a Trials Passage.
    • Play a game of Trials.
    • Win 1 round of Trials.
    • Get 1 elimination in Trials.
    • Reward: Astral Horizon Shotgun


  • Gilding Flawless in Trials of Osiris has been updated to align with the difficulty of gilding the Glorious title.
  • Season 20 requirements were 180 kills, 100 rewards, Flawless with a Seasonal Exotic weapon, carrying 2 players, and winning 7 games on a 7-win ticket.
  • Season 21 requirements are 500 kills, 16 Trials ranks, Flawless with a Seasonal Exotic weapon and 50 kills, and earning specific medals while on a ticket with 0 losses and equipped with specific emblems.
  • The changes are meant to focus on rewarding dedication and individual and team skill in the game mode

Here is what’s being added to Trials loot pool in Season 21:

RETURNING: The Messenger High-Impact Kinetic Pulse Rifle

NEW: Unexpected Resurgence Adaptive Arc Glaive


  • Unexpected Resurgence Adept version will be available on June 9
  • The Messenger Adept version will be available on June 16.

Leaving the Trials Loot Pool in Season 21

The Inquisitor Shotgun and Whistler’s Whim Bow will be removed from the standard loot pool in Season 21, but their non-Adept versions can still be obtained through legacy focusing with Saint-14.

Players who don't lose any matches during their Flawless run (earning a Flight of the Pigeon medal for every win) will receive an exclusive new emblem when opening the Flawless chest at the Lighthouse. While some skilled players may achieve this on their first run, it may prove to be a challenging achievement for others. The emblem is meant to be a source of pride for those who earn it.

Players who open the Lighthouse rewards chest will have a chance to obtain new rewards.

  • Hero’s Wake Exotic Ghost Shell
  • Valiant Memory Exotic Ship
  • Survivor’s Journey Exotic Sparrow
  • Glorious Patina shader (after first opening of the chest)

*Exclusive shader Glorious Patina can be earned by going Flawless during Season 21 Trials.

Hero’s Wake Exotic Ghost Shell

Valiant Memory Exotic Ship

Survivor’s Journey Exotic Sparrow

A new shader called Glorious Patina will also be available from the Lighthouse rewards chest in Season 21. Future Trials of Osiris shaders are permanent unlocks. Glorious Patina, which can be transmogrified onto any gear, is exclusive to Flawless players in Season 21.

Future Seasons will see the return of older Trials shaders (that were previously exclusive to Adept weapons) as rewards for completing the first Seasonal Flawless Ticket, and they will now be fully accessible and usable as on all your transmog gear.

Glorious Patina Season 21
Bloodline Feud Season 22
Vizier Regalia Season 23


  • Week 8 - April 21
  • Week 11 - May 12

Upcoming Changes

Changes to the Passages of Wealth and Mercy, and the Flawless Triumph requirements won't be active during these weekends. They'll be introduced in Season 21 together with a new emblem and a starter quest.

Challenger Pool (Connection Based Matchmaking):

  • Challenger Pool is for players who play Trials regularly and aim to go Flawless. It offers an experience similar to the original Trials in D1, without making games harder as the card progresses or after going Flawless.
  • Matchmaking in this pool is solely based on connection, with no consideration of tickets, weekly wins, or skill.
  • Players with a card that has no losses or those in a fireteam with someone who has a flawless card will be placed in this pool.

Practice Pool (Connection Based and Weekly Performance):

  • The Practice Pool is designed for players who are new or less experienced and are not yet ready to go Flawless in Trials. It provides a place for players to start playing Trials without being overwhelmed.
  • Matchmaking in this pool is based on connection and weekly performance.
    • Only players with a Flawed card or those on their first game of the week can play in this pool, and everyone in the fireteam must meet the same requirement.
  • Stomp Protection: The Practice Pool features Stomp protection, which reduces a player's weekly performance rating if they are consistently struggling, making matches slightly easier until they recover.
  • Farming Protection: The pool also has Farming protection, which slows down matchmaking times initially and, if a player or fireteam member continues to farm the Practice pool, locks them into the Challenger pool for the rest of the weekend, regardless of their card state.

Bungie will have a more in-depth discussion about the changes that are coming to Trials in Season 21.

Enemy Shields Update

Enemy shields will be getting an update in Season 21. This change is only visual. (Image: Left is before, right is after. The change goes from a grid like purple shield to a purple circle around the enemy, the new version kind of looks like the outline of a portal.)

“Over the past few years, the Destiny Dev team has introduced numerous changes to the core game experience as we’ve overhauled internal systems, as well as endeavored to make the game more accessible to our audience. The change we are about to talk about touches on both of these topics.” -Bungie



Destiny 2 Services and Hardware

“Starting with Season of the Deep’s launch (Update 7.1.0), we are moving to a scheduled downtime model where we bring Destiny 2 offline for an expected 1.5 hours on our update days. This will allow us to do our “staging” and rollout on the same day and should make the experience more stable and reliable. In the meantime, we will continue to monitor performance, upgrade hardware, increase service reliability, and work to give you a great experience each time you play the game.”
