Upcoming Destiny 2 Maintenance Timeline

For: Update 7.2.0

On: August 22

Start: 6 AM PDT / 1 PM UTC

With the Update 7.2.0 maintenance and Season 22 starting on August 22, the regular weekly reset will happen later than usual. We’re doing our best to make it as quick as possible. Some webpages and the weekly reset post will get updates later in the day and throughout the season when information is obtained.

As mentioned earlier, the daily Lost Sector will change each day after the reset (once we’re sure about the in-game details). This will cause a small delay for a few weeks until we know the full rotation.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Without further ado, here are the Artifact perks for Season 22:






Auto Rifle

Siphon Combo



Machine Guns



Your equipped Auto Rifles fire shield-piercing rounds and stun Barrier Champions. Additionally, Auto Rifles are always overcharged when that modifier is active.

Combines the Arc and Strand Siphon mods into one.

Strand weapon final blows have a chance to generate a Tangle.

Uninterrupted fire from your equipped Machine Gun stuns unshielded combatants, delaying ability energy regeneration and lowering combatant damage output.

Strong against Overload Champions. Additionally, Machine Guns are always overcharged when that modifier is active.

Dealing elemental ability damage increases matching weapon damage, and elemental weapon damage increases matching ability damage. Bonus granted is 10% for 5 seconds.




Siphon Combo

Origin Perk

Specialization II





- Bows gain shield-piercing arrows, which bypass combatant defenses.

- Bows gain shield-piercing arrows, which bypass combatant defenses.

- Strong against Barrier Champions. Additionally, Bows are always overcharged when that modifier is active.

Combines the Solar and Strand Siphon mods into one.

Weapons with the Head Rush, Nanotech Tracer Rockets, Unsated Hunger, and [REDACTED] Origin traits are always overcharged when that modifier is active.

While stunned, Champions take bonus damage from your abilities and Elemental Orb damage

Rapid precision hits made from long range weaken the target.


Scout Rifle


Siphon Combo

Elemental Orbs:






-Aiming down the sights of a Scout Rifle for a short time loads a powerful explosive payload that stuns unshielded combatants.

- Strong against Unstoppable Champions.

- Additionally, Scout Rifles are always overcharged when that modifier is active.

Combines the Void and Strand Siphon mods into one.

While using a Void subclass, Void weapon final blows have a chance to spawn a Void Elemental Orb. Void Orbs can be thrown to create a Void explosion that makes enemies it damages volatile.

When an ally destroys or picks up your Tangle or Elemental Orb, the Tangle cooldown is reduced by 5 seconds, and you gain bonus damage with weapons matching your subclass for 10 seconds.

Subclass elemental buffs grant you bonus recovery and damage resistance against combatant attacks of the matching element type.

Overload Hand


Origin Perk

Specialization I

Elemental Orbs:






- Landing consecutive hits with any Hand Cannon you are wielding disrupts combatants, stunning them, delaying ability energy regeneration and lowering combatant damage output.

- Strong against Overload Champions. Additionally, Hand Cannons are always overcharged when that modifier is active.

Greatly improves the benefits provided by the Head Rush, Nanotech Tracer Rockets, Unsated Hunger, and [REDACTED] Origin traits.

While using an Arc subclass, Arc weapon final blows have a chance to spawn an Arc Elemental Orb. Arc Orbs can be thrown to create an Arc explosion that jolts targets it damages.

Picking up a Tangle or Elemental Orb grants energy to your least-powered ability.

Combatant final blows with Tangles or Elemental Orbs have a chance to drop Special or Heavy ammo.





Elemental Orbs:






- Aiming down sights for a brief period with any Fusion Rifle you are wielding loads a powerful explosive payload that stuns unshielded combatants.

- Strong against Unstoppable Champions. Additionally, Fusion Rifles are always overcharged when that modifier is active.

All Scavenger mods are discounted.

While using a Solar subclass, Solar weapon final blows have a chance to spawn a Solar Elemental Orb. Solar Orbs can be thrown to create a Solar explosion that scorches targets it damages.

If you have fewer than 2 stacks of Armor Charge, rapid precision shots with Bows, Snipers, and Scout Rifles generate an Armor Charge.

Your Armor Charges grant bonus damage to your thrown Tangles or Elemental Orbs. Your Armor Charge now decays over time.

One final note: The perks Overload Machine Guns and Overload Hand Cannon do not currently overcharge those weapons when that modifier is active – this is an unintended bug. Anti-Barrier Bow and Unstoppable Fusion Rifle will overcharge their weapons, but this is not currently reflected in their in-game descriptions. These issues will be corrected in a later patch. Stay tuned to @BungieHelp for more information in the future.”

  • 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)
