  • Active medals are chosen according to currently active modifiers, like Surges.


“While we don’t have plans to dedicate more resources to significantly transform Gambit, we do have a few updates planned for the year of The Final Shape”

  • Cathedral of Scars map is being added to the Gambit playlist with The Final Shape, as well as Shadow Legion and Lucent Hive enemies.
  • Starting from Season 22, Bungie is decreasing the quantity of Gambit-specific Seasonal Challenges.

Armor Set Rewards

“Players have pointed out that we didn’t release a new armor set for the ritual playlists (Vanguard, Crucible, Gambit) with Lightfall as previously called out in our yearly release schedule. Delivering ritual armor sets at the rates we have in the past has become increasingly challenging, especially considering these sets have historically had very low adoption by players as both base armor and cosmetic ornaments.”

Bungie has decided they will no longer creating a new armor set every expansion. They will be prioritizing releasing a new ritual armor set with The Final Shape. There is also a new Trials armor set coming in Season 22, check out a preview of the the Titan armor below.

Quality-of-Life Upgrades (Season 22)

  • Cosmetic Favoring: Pin up 100 of your favorite shader, ornaments, and emotes.
  • Stasis Aspects and Fragments will be available from Elsie Bray on Europa for any character who has completed the Beyond Light campaign.
  • Transmats will become unlocks instead of consumable.
  • Wish-Ender becomes a real quest.
  • Collections now have a Resources section. It sorts and explains all the game money, upgrade stuff, and engrams, telling you how to get them and what they’re for.
  • Iron Banner challenges will be split into two stacking challenges.
    • One is to get the reputation multiplier (this does not require using specific Seasonal subclasses).
    • The other is for Pinnacle rewards (this does require using Seasonal subclasses).
  • Ritual rank-ups process immediately upon activity completion.

Sandbox Updates (Season 22)

  • New Strand Aspects arrive
    • Whirling Maelstrom for Hunter
    • Banner of War for Titans
    • Weavewalk for Warlocks
  • A few more underused Exotic Armor pieces will be reworked. Learn more in next week’s Developer Insights article.
  • New weapon subfamilies will be introduced with The Final Shape. Tune into the Showcase on August 22 for a look at some in action.
  • Weapon Tuning (The upcoming Weapon Preview article will go over changes coming soon).
    • Hand Cannons: Reload faster, deal more PvE damage to minor and major enemies.
    • Swords: Use full-power heavy attacks with any Sword energy, improved Sword Guard.
    • Touch of Malice: Adjustments for player enjoyment.
    • Perks: Bipod, Envious Assassin, Under-Over more useful in Season 22.
    • and more!

The Final Shape and its raid will provide a climactic conclusion to the Light and Darkness Saga before we look ahead to what comes next in Destiny 2.

Power Cap

  • Due to seeing positive feedback, the Power level cap is not being increased in Season 22.

Exotic Rotator

  • The new Exotic Mission Rotator will start on Day One of Season 22.

  • Bungie is creating the Pathfinder system to replace some bounties with a more rewarding approach. This will debut on the new destination in The Final Shape, and Bungie is exploring the possibility of replacing core ritual bounties in the upcoming year. See a preview of the work-in-progress Pathfinder UI:

In-Game LFG

  • New LFG Fireteam Finder feature arrives with Season 23.

Bungie will be revealing more about the features above during the Showcase on August 22.

Solstice Reminder

Solstice ends on August 8. Remember to grab your rewards from the Event Card before it’s gone for good.

Transmog changes: Players with the 2022 and 2023 Solstice sets’ glowing armor can use both radiant and standard transmogs. Those without the glowing version can only access standard transmogs. Each transmog version requires a separate purchase, sharing the original icon until equipped.

“Beginning during Season 22, transmog for Solstice armor will be updated to include the non-glow versions of both the 2022 and 2023 Solstice armor sets for players who own them.”

Vendor Engrams

As the Season of the Deep comes to an end, make sure to collect any unclaimed vendor rewards before the Season changes. Seasonal rewards will stay until the next expansion.
