Destiny 2: Xûr and Trials (Oct 22 – Oct 26, 2021)

XÛR, AGENT OF THE NINE

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 Exotic Armor meaning the stats/numbers are different with each purchase. Legendary weapon/armor stays the rolls that it shows but change every time Xur arrives.)

RECENT NEWS FROM THIS WEEK AT BUNGIE:

FREELANCE TRIALS LABS & SEASONAL CHALLENGES

Freelance is a matchmaking node specifically for solo players; no premade fireteams may enter. This is a separate node that will be located directly above Trials of Osiris in the Director.  

Through this Freelance Labs weekend, Trials reputation will be doubled. If you’re rounding out your Trials specific armor collection or aiming for a good roll on any of the weapons that Trials has to offer, this is a great weekend to jam out some rep! Now remember, once you’ve completed a full card, even if you’ve lost a game or two, your post-game rewards are increased! Enhancement Prisms, Ascendant Shards, and Trials Engrams all have the chance to drop. Whether you want to Focus your engrams and roll a specific reward or just roll the dice , this is the best way to earn Trials loot. Armor drops also have higher chances for better stat rolls! 

This week also introduced a fresh set of Seasonal Challenges, including Trial by Firing Squad. To complete it, win 20 rounds over the course of the weekend and be rewarded with a Reed’s Regret Linear Fusion Rifle, XP, and Bright Dust ! Once you’ve gotten your hands on Reed’s Regret, this also unlocks the ability to focus Trials Engrams for more rolls at Saint-14.

DISABILITY AWARENESS

Bungie believes that everyone should be able to play their games, regardless of a barrier or disability they may have. October is Disability History Month and National Disability Employment Awareness Month in the United States, which is held annually to increase awareness and understanding of the contributions made by persons with disabilities. 

Bungie announced their newest inclusion Club, Accessibility@Bungie. Their mission is to partner with organizations within the gaming industry who are dedicated to game accessibility. This club has worked closely with several teams here at Bungie to create their Diversity and Inclusion pin series for the Bungie Store entitled “Everyone Can Play” An emblem of the same name will also be included. 

The pin and emblem feature an open door that leads out into the world, symbolizing that there are no barriers and that possibilities are endless. Throughout the month of October, 100% of profits from the pin’s sales will benefit the AbleGamers Foundation. This organization creates opportunities that enable play to combat social isolation, fosters inclusive communities, and improves the quality of life for people with disabilities. After October, profits will be collected by the Bungie Foundation to distribute to other organizations that do accessibility-related work.

FESTIVAL OF THE LOOT SEASONAL EVENT

Available for All Players until November 02, 2021.

Helpful Links: Official Website | Guide

Eva Levante invites you to join a Last City tradition that celebrates the light we find in the darkness. Gather round the campfire with your fellow Guardians, dig into your overflowing bags of candy, and fondly recount the tales of those who were lost but will never be forgotten.

Players may acquire the Calavera Ghost Shell directly for Silver or may acquire it with Bright Dust when it is spotlighted during the event. The Calavera Ghost Shell was made by Luis Yepez. For more awesome works from Luis, be sure to visit his page over at Luisyepez.com.

Check out the Festival of the Lost page for more details!

If you haven’t got to join in on the festivities yet, there are a ton of treats waiting on you! Eva Levante is in the Tower with bounties, a quest, and some silly masks.  

Finishing the opening quest will reward you with the Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle. The Jurassic Green also rolls with Tunnel Vision and Dragonfly, or Killing Wind and Multi-Killclip. 

Completing Festival of the Lost Triumphs will net you the new Headless Hues Shader, the Beheaded Home Emblem, and the Headless Horsepower Exotic Sparrow.

BUNGIE’S PLAYER SUPPORT

Hotfix 3.3.1.1 is LIVE

Bungie released Hotfix 3.3.0.3 yesterday. This hotfix resolved several issues including:  

  • The Prophecy Ghost Shell now takes shaders as intended. 
  • In The Corrupted strike, Sedia’s shield no longer regenerates at an unusually high speed. 

Xbox vs. Microsoft Store Silver Clarification

Last week, Destiny 2 launched on the Microsoft Store for PC. Players on Xbox can use the same Microsoft Account they use on Xbox to log into the Microsoft Store on any Windows PC to play Destiny 2 with their characters. 

Due to the Microsoft website selling products for both the Xbox and Windows PC version of Destiny 2, players should carefully verify they’re buying Silver for the correct platform. We are working with Microsoft to make these names and descriptions clearer for everyone. If players purchase Silver from Microsoft’s website for the wrong platform, they will need to log into that platform to obtain the Silver. The same applies for emote bundles, but players will also have to visit Master Rahool in the Tower on that platform to obtain the emote. 

In the meantime, the Silver pages show what platform the Silver is for and players can also distinguish the Silver with the following information: 

Silver bundles, such as the Season of the Lost Silver Bundle and Throne of Atheon Emote Bundle, are also platform specific.
