TRIALS OF OSIRIS + TRIALS LABS

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.

Ends: Tuesday, Dec 07 @ 9AM PT

Modes Available: Normal Trials and Trials Labs: Freelance

TRIALS LABS: FREELANCE CHANGE

Info below is directly from a Bungie.net article (Dec 02, 2021):

Trials Labs: Freelance is a separate node where everyone playing queues by themselves. The mode is perfect if you don’t have a regular team, but may even be a space for you to find other players to party up with for some Flawless success in the Team node. 

This week is also a Labs where it is not required to do the Trials Intro quest to launch into the nodes; the only requirements are owning Beyond Light and being at 1290 Power level or higher. While Trials can be a bit competitive, Bungie hopes this variation will open up PvP to more players and introduce them to some sweet rewards, and fuel more desire to give the Crucible a try from time to time. 

December 16 will be our last TWAB of the year, so Bungie is announcing this well in advance: On December 31-Jan 3 there will be another Trials Labs: Freelance.

Expect an additional Capture Zone and Freelance in early February, before The Witch Queen launches. Bungie will also be looking at map rotation in the Trials playlist over the next few months, starting with pulling lower performing maps from rotation. Stay tuned for future announcements!

DESTINY 2 BUNGIE 30TH ANNIVERSARY PACK

Releases on December 7, 2021

Check out the Official 30th Anniversary page for more details!

Note: The 30th Anniversary Pack, launching on December 7, 2021, will function as DLC (such as Beyond Light or Shadowkeep) and not as Seasonal content. DLC licenses do not transfer between platforms with Cross Save like Seasons do. This means that the 30th Anniversary Pack will be accessible exclusively on the platform it was purchased regardless of Cross Save setup. Players will need to purchase the 30th Anniversary Pack on each platform they intend to access it on.

TWITCH BOUNTY EMBLEM UPDATE

In the spirit of communicating early and often, Bungie would like to announce a new emblem coming online for the Destiny 2 Twitch Extension! For those that may not be aware, Bungie offers rewards for players who engage with Destiny 2 streams on Twitch. During Trials weekends, players can react to matches to earn some Trials reputation and in-game currencies. They also offer a unique emblem for players who gift two subscriptions on Twitch channels using the Destiny 2 Twitch extension. 

Starting on December 16, players who complete the gift-subscription bounty will unlock a fresh emblem: Dreissigste. Bungie highly recommend visiting your favorite stream on Dec. 16 and showing some love to their community with a holiday season gift sub!

Stay tuned for updates on availability. Bungie will be loud and clear the moment Dreissigste live! 

This image will be updated, if Bungie makes a posts a new image of the emblem .

MOMENTS OF TRIUMPH ’21

Begins: Tuesday, Dec 07 @ 9AM PST

As usual if you complete all required Triumphs and collect all the rewards, you will unlock the MMXXII Seal and Title. 

Bungie Team: Moments of Triumph (MoT) is always a special time for us, but this year it hits different.  Not only are we celebrating your incredible achievements across the solar system (and dimensions) this past year, but we also get to celebrate a Triumph of our own 鈥 Bungie鈥檚 30th Anniversary. One might argue that鈥檚 twice as much celebration as last year, and you know what? You鈥檇 be right.  

We鈥檝e channeled this celebratory spirit into this year鈥檚 new MoT crest in a few fun ways we thought were worth sharing. Three swords rest in the top right corner in honor of our 30th Anniversary, each a decade of doing what we love and being inspired by you. Flowers spring to life across the crest 鈥 honoring heroes lost, embracing change, and symbolizing growth across seasons. The Guardian鈥檚 ship lifts off towards new adventure in the lower left corner, beyond the unforgiving cold of Europa to explore the stars once more. 

There are other secrets to uncover of course, but we鈥檒l leave that to you.  

-Bungie Team (TWAB article)

Here’s a look at some sweet loot:

If you鈥檙e looking to show your Guardian prowess in the real world, we have a new round of Bungie Rewards for you to unlock and purchase from the Bungie Store, if you so desire. With our yearly T-shirt offering, we also have the Moments of Triumph Seal Pin for your Jackets, pinboards, or whatever you may stick these things on. There is one last Bungie Reward that could be unlocked, taking the form of a coin you may remember from years past… 

Your yearly quest for the Moments of Triumph T-shirt begins next week when the 30th Anniversary goes live. More info will be added to this Moments of Triumph page next week!

ARMOR MODS UPDATE: LET鈥橲 TALK GLIMGLAM

Info below is from a Bungie article:

Starting next week, you can swap out your armor mods instantaneously, at any time, with no Glimmer or currency required. The goal of the team is to better enable build crafting on the fly, whether you be loading into a PvP match or prepping for a Nightfall.

Bungie has also seized this opportunity to make 鈥渇ree and reversible鈥 socket actions available to all 3rd party Destiny 2 apps starting on December 7. So, in addition to equipping gear and transferring items to/from the Vault, your favorite D2 apps will be able to apply Armor 2.0 mods, weapon perks, shaders, ornaments, and ghost projections on your behalf. 

While this may not be a solution to every build craft feedback item, it is a step forward as the team looks to dialing in build crafting and loadout opportunities for Destiny 2 in the future. The Bungie team will also be looking at Artifact mod resets and costs in the future, but general armor mod swapping is a great first step. 

As Bungie said earlier, this enables third party community apps to change mods at the tap of a finger on your phone screen, or the click of a mouse on browsers.

CROSS PLAY: TEXT CHAT CHECK-IN

All info below is from an article by Bungie

It鈥檚 been a while since our last Cross Play update from the Social team. In a previous TWAB, they provided a nice roadmap of what to expect as we brought Cross Play online in Season of the Lost, but also on what to expect for future updates. Today we have a quick run-through on text chat and what to expect in the winter timeframe. Hello everyone, the Social team wanted to give you a quick update on our progress towards a unified text chat system. We recently rolled out cross-platform text chat between our two PC platforms, Steam and the Microsoft Store. We also let you know we鈥檇 be adding display-only support and then USB keyboard support in 鈥榳inter.鈥  So, what does 鈥榳inter鈥 mean? It鈥檚 time for an update! 

  • Display-only text chat will be available for all consoles with the release of the 30th Anniversary Pack on December 7.  
  • With the launch of The Witch Queen, USB keyboard text chat will arrive for consoles.

What is Display only text chat on consoles (30th Anniversary)? 

  • You鈥檒l be able to turn on text chat display in your settings.
  • By using the Ghost menu, you鈥檒l be able bring up the display again if you鈥檇 missed a message.
  • You will not be able to send messages, but you will finally be able to read what your PC fireteam mates are chatting about.

What does USB keyboard text chat on consoles mean (The Witch Queen)? 

  • You will NOT be able to move your character via the keyboard.
  • You鈥檒l be able to invoke the text chat window by pressing enter.
  • You鈥檒l be able to text chat using the full suite of chat channels in Destiny.
  • You will be able to pick from five different font size display options.
  • IME support will follow in an update shortly after Witch Queen.

We can鈥檛 wait for our console friends to be able to join into text chat when in Cross Play.  Now you鈥檒l be able to see raid callouts in the middle of an encounter, or set up some strategy before starting a round of Trials. As always, keep the feedback coming, as these features roll out.

The Ciphers can be picked up from the Forsaken section of the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive in the Tower. They will end up in a player鈥檚 Consumables inventory, but if the inventory is full, they may go to the Postmaster. Players should pick these up immediately so that they don鈥檛 get pushed out of the Postmaster.
  • Moments of Triumph 鈥 One Triumph鈥檚 description states that one Lost Sector on Master Difficulty needs to be completed, but there are four that need to be completed. 

Destiny 2 Leaving Xbox Game Pass

On December 8, Destiny 2 and its expansions (Forsaken, Shadowkeep, and Beyond Light) will leave Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming for Xbox consoles. Destiny 2 will remain on the Xbox Game Pass for PC. 

Once Destiny 2 leaves Xbox Game Pass, players who don鈥檛 own any of the expansions on the Xbox platform will lose access to: 

  • Expansion quests and campaigns. 
  • Stasis Subclass, which is Beyond Light-specific. 
  • The middle-tree Supers for each subclass. The purchase of any major expansion (sans Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack) will unlock these Subclass supers. 
  • the 10% off perk for Silver purchases and other game add-ons. 

Items, such as Exotics, already acquired will still be available for players who earned them, and Season Passes will remain active.
