Destiny 2: X没r and Trials (Apr 15 – Apr 19)

馃挔 This weekend you can find X没r is hanging out on the EDZ and Trials Labs: Capture Zones is live on Exodus Blue. Check out the article below for a more detailed look at X没r’s inventory, Trials, news, and more!



A peddler of strange curios, X没r’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine. (Note: X没r offers random rolls on Exotic Armor meaning the stats/numbers are different with each purchase.)

Helpful Articles and Websites

NOTE:. The latest TWAB (on April 21, 2022) included a lot of details regarding Sandbox changes coming in Season 17. I recommended checking it out when you have some time or check out YouTube (such as the video below), there are usually some who go over this stuff.



Info from the latest This Week at Bungie article.

Contest Mode Emblem Grant

Players who completed the Vow of the Disciple raid during the 24 hour extension of Contest Mode have been granted the Day at the Pyramid Triumph and The Cleaver emblem.  

Qualifying players will need to visit their Postmaster and claim the Lost Package to unlock the Day at the Pyramid Triumph. Claiming this Triumph will then drop The Cleaver emblem. 

Quest Archive

Players who are missing quests or who are attempting to reacquire previously abandoned quests should visit the Quest Archive in the Tower Courtyard, located next to the Postmaster. From here players can reacquire abandoned quests, organized by quest type. 

Players who are unable to locate their abandoned quests at the Quest Archive should also verify that they have checked all the vendor pages of the vendor who originally provided the quest.

  • Another Gambit Labs arrives, this time the experimental mode is Mote Thief. Plus, all players earn bonus Gambit ranks all week long.
  • Clash returns to the Crucible.
  • Defeat Alak-Hul in The Lightblade Nightfall. NOTE: Because the rotation changed for Nightfall, I am currently unsure what the Nightfall weapon is next week. There is a chance it could go back to The Comedian or it may go forward to The Hothead. We will find out on Tuesday and hopefully get back to a known rotation again.



Next Tuesday, April 26, Destiny 2 Hotfix will be released. View Bungie’s Destiny Server and Update Status page for maintenance times, as well as the timeline below:     

  • 9 AM PDT (1600 UTC): Destiny 2 maintenance begins.    
  • 9:45 AM (1645 UTC): Destiny 2 is brought offline.     
  • 10 AM (1700 UTC): Destiny 2 Hotfix will begin rolling out across all platforms and regions.     
  • 11 AM (1800 UTC): Destiny 2 maintenance completes. 

Below is a list of some issues that are scheduled to be resolved with Hotfix 

  • The Summoner Auto Rifle from Saint-14’s reputation rewards is missing a Masterwork slot. 
  • The Lightblade and the Birthplace of the Vile Grandmaster Nightfalls did not count towards the completion of the Total Conquest Triumph. 
  • In Gambit, the Primeval鈥檚 shield sometimes did not successfully drop after defeating the Envoys.

The following changes will arrive with Hotfix on April 26, 2022:

  • Axion Bolt base cooldown increased from 91s to 152s.聽
  • Titan Barricade鈥檚 base cooldown when the Bastion Void Aspect is equipped is now 82s, up from 53s.聽
    • This matches the recharge rate of Warlock Rift.聽
  • Offensive Bulwark now provides 60% less bonus grenade energy regeneration in PvP game modes.聽
  • Whisper of Chains now provides 15% bonus damage resistance against players when near a Stasis crystal, down from 25%.聽
    • Unchanged vs. PvE targets.聽
  • Renewal Grasps聽
    • While equipped, Renewal Grasps increases the base cooldown of the Duskfield Grenade from 62s to 152s.聽
    • The outgoing damage penalty applied to player victims in the Renewal Grasps鈥 Duskfield Grenade reduced from 50% to 20%.
      • Damage unchanged vs. PvE targets.聽

Stay tuned for the full patch notes article, planned for release alongside the hotfix!聽聽



Next week, Gambit Labs returns. This time, Bungie will be experimenting with Mote Thieves starting on April 26.

What’s the Difference?

  • Normal Mote drain from having two Blockers is disabled.  
  • Instead, every second the invader is invading, one Mote drains directly from your bank to the invader’s bank. 

NOTE: Keep in mind, invaders need to be near the bank in order to drain Motes.
