About: This is a weekly pinnacle mission where each week, Guardians will uncover new vulnerabilities within the Vex Network and use Splicer Keys to infiltrate and collapse it from within.
There will also be a Corrupted difficulty/version for each Expunge mission.
- Expunge: Tartarus
- Tartarus (Europa): The architect of the Endless Night has routed programming directives deep within the Vex Nexus to a terminus domain where old code and abandoned terraforming projects are eradicated. Destroy the Oppressive Mind and collapse that domain.
- Corrupted Tartarus (Europa): The Taken have infested what remains of the Tartarus domain within the Vex Nexus and wrested control of the Oppressive Mind. Return and destroy the Oppressive Mind once and for all.
- Expunge: Styx
- Styx (Moon): A river of Vex code flows into a hub within the Nexus where an Oppressive Mind manages the flow of directives maintaining the Endless Night. Destroy this mind and its domain will collapse.
- Corrupted Styx (Moon): As the Styx domain of the Vex Nexus collapsed it allowed an incursion of Taken to assume direct control of the Oppressive Mind and its functions. Return and destroy the Oppressive Mind once and for all.
- Expunge: Labyrinth
- Labyrinth (The Tangled Shore): Analysis of Vex Subjugated Minds have revealed a labyrinthine domain of the Vex Nexus, governed by a powerful Oppressive Mind. Destroy this mind and the entire domain will collapse.
- Corrupted Labyrinth (The Tangled Shore): When the Labyrinth domain of the Vex Nexus collapsed it was not destroyed, but infected by an incursion of Taken. The Endless Night’s subroutines flow through a now corrupted Oppressive Mind. Return and destroy the Oppressive Mind once and for all.
- Expunge: Delphi
- Delphi: Hidden within a corrupted core of the Vex Nexus lies the domain of Quria, Blade Transform, the Dreaming Mind. This Taken agent of Savathûn, the Witch Queen, is the architect behind the Endless Night. Destroy Quria and save the Last City.
NOTE: View the Expunge page for more details. More information will be provided about this activity once made available by Bungie or after it goes live on June 01, 2021.

Info from: bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/50325
- Seasonal Armor can be earned from Seasonal activities. You’ll be able to guarantee pieces from these sets using Focused Umbral Engrams. Season Rank levels that once featured armor have been updated with packages of Glimmer, Legendary Shards, Upgrade Modules, Exotic Engrams, Enhancement Cores, and Enhancement Prisms. Universal Armor Ornaments will continue to be earned towards the end of the Season Pass.
- On the Seasonal Track, there are three weapons to earn. Season Pass owners will unlock the new Exotic Sidearm on day-one of the Season as soon as they claim their first reward. Additionally, the new Shotgun and Heavy Machine Gun will be up for grabs as you level up.
- New weapons are available through Umbral Engrams and Override completions.
- Outside of Override, there’s even more Legendary loot to claim. To start, you’ll receive a new quest to earn the Null Composure Fusion Rifle. Once the weapon is unlocked, you can collect Gambit, Crucible, and Vanguard themed weapon ornaments to further customize your style.
- There are also weapons joining the current slate of post-game rewards for Gambit, Crucible, and Vanguard Strikes. In total, there will be 12 Legendary weapons to earn — four per activity.
- Like last Season, each Nightfall Weapon will be on a weekly rotation in Nightfall playlists. Upping the difficulty will give you a higher drop chance as you search for desired rolls. Starting June 22, Grandmaster Nightfalls will become available, introducing Adept versions of each weapon.
- For the endgame focused Guardians out there, three familiar weapons will be up for grabs. (Destiny 1 veterans among you will recall these legends in an instant.)
