💠 This weekend you can find Xûr hanging out at the Hangar in the Tower and Trials is live on Distant Shore Check out the article below for a more detailed look at Xûr’s Inventory, Trials, and more!

NOTE: A infographic for Xur showing weapon perks and armor stats will be made available ASAP. Right now, the Trials infographic is on hold due to how the rewards are earned at the time. If you have any feedback please leave a comment below or DM Kyber.



A peddler of strange curios, Xûr’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine. (Note: Xur offers random rolls on all armor.)

This is a 3v3 competitive crucible activity only available from Friday until Reset every weekend! Matchmaking is available! Earn exclusive rewards in Trials of Osiris by defeating other Guardians in this weekly Elimination playlist.

Availability: Friday, Sept 17 @ 10AM PDT – Tuesday, Sept 21 @ 10AM PDT

Map: Distant Shore

Rank Up Rewards:

Once you get to the max rank, you may reset your Trials rank to earn new weapons at rank 10 and 16.

Note: It looks like the Rank Up Rewards stay on whatever you last ranked up to, so if you do not reset your rank then you will get the Sniper at Rank 10 and the Hand Cannon at Rank 16 and if you reset your rank at all your Rank 10 reward is Pulse Rifle and your Rank 16 the Sword. Due to this I will not be making a graphic for Trials at the time since everyone could be at different rewards, if I do make an infographic for Trials it will just show rewards for 1st rank up (rank 10 and rank 16 weapons with perks) and rewards once you reset your rank once.

  • Rank 4: Upgrade Module (x2)
  • Rank 7: Enhancement Prism (x3)
  • Rank 10: Eye of Sol – Sniper Rifle (Changes to Messenger Pulse Rifle after one reset)
  • Rank 13: Upgrade Module (x2)
  • Rank 17: Igneous Hammer – Hand Cannon (Changes to Sola’s Scar Sword after one reset)
  • Flawless: Adept Reed’s Regret – Linear Fusion Rifle (random rolls)
    • Note: You can get extra rolls by winning more matches on your flawless card until you lose, and can get 1 extra Adept Reed’s Regret by turning in a 7 win card at Saint, in addition to legendary shards and glimmer. Thanks to Praetoryx for this info.
    • You will also get a Pinnacle Trials Engram when you win 20 rounds and another when you win 7 matches.

Engram Focusing:

  • Non-Adept Trials Engram Focusing Requires: 20k Glimmer, 100 Legendary Shards, 1 Trials Engram,
  • Adept Trials Engram Focusing Requires: 50,000 Glimmer. 250 Legendary Shards, 1 Trials Engram

‘Flawless Matchmaking’ pool is enabled.

However, Bungie wants to make sure that there are enough flawless players to maintain good matchmaking times – so we are waiting until Friday afternoon to turn this on, and they will be watching player reactions and matchmaking analytics all weekend to make sure it is behaving properly. 

Enabled some matchmaking help if someone runs into several blowout matches.

This is due to Bungie not being happy with the experience of players who have a bad streak of getting repeatedly thrashed 5-0. This temporary help mechanic clears up once they start winning again, so don’t think someone will cheese a flawless by tanking for a few games and then have a weekend of smooth sailing.

Quitter penalties that are used on the Glory playlists is enabled

This gives you a 30-minute timeout if you quit out of too many games. We are going to be watching this, and have some harsher plans if players continue to abandon their fireteams. 

Trials Labs News

Next week, in addition to the first Trials Labs (spoiler alert: It’s Capture Zone Trials!), Bungie will be disabling the Special ammo replenishment on revive – you still get special ammo if you kill someone, or when you start the next round. Bungie is also disabling the matchmaking counter on the Trials of Osiris lobby, so you won’t be able to tell how many players have joined but will still be told when they join. Bungie also fixed an issue preventing you from being able to Masterwork weapons from Saint-14’s rank rewards.

Hotfix Resolved Issues

Earlier today, September 16, Hotfix was released to all players. Below are some of the issues resolved with this hotfix: 

  • The barriers around the Scorch Cannons in the Fallen Walker public event will no longer repel players and block Heroic completions. 
  • Strike Streaks will now work as intended. 
  • The Dawn Chorus Exotic Warlock helmet correctly extends burn damage on enemies. 
  • The Sweet Spotter Triumph now correctly progresses when killing Vex Wyverns with precision damage. 

Bungie Name Changes

Bungie changed the Bungie Names of an additional 700 players whose Bungie Name violated their Code of Conduct. Players affected by this change will have their names set to “Guardian.” Bungie will continue to investigate and change Bungie Names for those names that try to skirt the line or that they feel should be actioned upon. The option for players to change their own Bungie Names will become available in a future update. If players see a name that they feel should be removed, please report them in-game or in your Recent Games History on

Hotfix Extended Downtime

On Thursday, September 23, extended downtime for Destiny 2 is scheduled in preparation for Destiny 2 Hotfix Players will be removed from activities at 5 AM (1200 UTC) and be unable to log in until 10 AM (1700 UTC). Please note that times may be subject to change during this maintenance period.
