💠For the second week of the Season, you can find Xûr hanging out on the big tree on Nessus. Trials will return for the first time this Season next Friday. Check out the article below for a more detailed look at Xûr’s inventory, Trials, news, and more!


A peddler of strange curios, Xûr’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine.

For a breakdown on what has changed with Iron Banner read this Bungie post to learn more about the specifics, to sum it up Bungie wanted to make Valus Forge’s competitive event feel more like an event. Because of that, the event frequency is now twice a Season: May 31 and July 12. Valus Forge will now be front and center in Eva Levante’s usual spot. 

  • Power Level: Disabled
  • Mode: Rift
  • Map: Disjunction

From what I am hearing it looks like the issue with Iron Banner rep is fixed.

Learn more on our Iron Banner page.


News from

Here’s the full breakdown that we previously shared:  

  • A Spark appears in the center of the map a few seconds after a match starts or a point is scored and can be picked up by interacting with it for a couple seconds. The Spark itself is a buff that allows full weapon and ability usage aside from Super.  
  • For the first five seconds after picking up the Spark, or for a few seconds after taking damage, both teams receive a waypoint for the Spark holder. After that, the waypoint only remains for the Spark holder’s own team—marking the Spark holder for your teammates is important!  
  • If you die while carrying the Spark, it drops to the ground where you died (or nearby if the spot is not navigable).  
  • If you hold onto the Spark too long, it detonates.  
  • Team resurrections are enabled in Rift, so make sure and help your teammates in the middle of a push, or if you are playing defense.  
  • There are no points for kills, just for Spark dunks, so playing the objective is key.  
  • When Rift is in Iron Banner, the Hunt is on when your team has the Spark. When the music intensifies, it’s time to score!  
  • There are several ways to extend matches past the time limit:  
    • Continuation: At end of regulation time, If the current Spark holder could change the outcome of the match—either the game is tied, or if the current Spark holder is down one point—the match continues until the current Spark holder drops the Spark or scores.  
    • Sudden Death Multispark: If there is a tie after time is up, the game enters a 90-second overtime where three sparks spawn in midfield. Who will be the first to score? Chaos reigns.   
    • After the sudden-death timer is up, Sparks stop dropping on death, and any Sparks on the ground are removed. As soon as the last Spark is eliminated without a score, the match ends in a tie. 

Regarding reputation changes:   

  • Play matches with each match earning more towards Iron Banner reputation.   
  • Win matches to earn a small bonus based on your current Iron Banner rank.   
  • Wear Iron Banner armor (or just as ornaments on your own non-Iron Banner gear) and equip Iron Banner weapons to max out your gear multiplier at 200%.   
  • Five total pieces must be equipped, though please remember this includes Iron Banner armor and Iron Banner ornaments.   
  • Complete the Iron Banner challenges to tack on 100% to your challenge multiplier for the rest of the week.   
  • Use an Iron Banner emblem for an additional 10% emblem multiplier. 
    • There is a reported issue with certain emblems, the team is actively investigating.    

Daily Challenges:  

We’ve seen some confusion over the daily challenges that can be found when hovering over the Iron Banner node, so we wanted to resurface what was previously shared about this mechanic for anyone that may have missed it. As noted in the previous TWAB, “For the first four days of each Iron Banner week, Guardians will unlock a new daily challenge, one for each day. These challenges unlock each day whether you complete them or not, so if you log in on Friday, you can do them all in succession if you want to. Rewards will also stack reputation bonuses for the remainder of the week alongside a Pinnacle Iron Engram. The weekly bounties that typically award Pinnacles have been deprecated appropriately to balance out this change to Iron Banner.” These work similarly to weekly challenges and can be found in the node for Iron Banner Rift.  

At the end of the day, we’re going to be keeping an eye on feedback. It’s an odd spot to be in, where you can see the community in its polarity and its entirety. There are so many opposing viewpoints and wants and sometimes those can contradict each other in a way that can be a confounding puzzle. A fun puzzle, absolutely, but tricky. One small move can make or break an experience, but we will never stop listening and expanding the Destiny 2 experience.  

Before diving into what’s next for Solar, we just wanted to say thank you to everyone that shared their feedback, their joy, and their desires with us as we constantly evolve this space-faring experience. Right now, the team is hard at work on investigating known issues such as the Spark sometimes disappearing, progress trackers for the new title, and that pesky loop trap that some are encountering when taking on an enemy team. While we continue digging into every facet of these reported instances, we wanted to give a heads up on what’s happening behind the scenes and drop the Bungie Help resource for those looking for updates going forward. Stay tuned! 


Trials is on a short break, it will return for the first time this Season on June 10 at Reset (10 AM PDT).

Info from the latest This Week at Bungie article.

Iron Banner Challenges

Bungie has seen some confusion surrounding Iron Banner’s daily challenges (which work similarly to weekly challenges). When hovering over the Iron Banner node in the Director, players can see the “Weekly Challenge (1 of 4).” One weekly challenge is unlocked daily from Tuesday to Friday. The challenges will stack, so players can complete one a day, or all four when Friday comes around. Each challenge will grant players Pinnacle gear. 

Dungeon Key Ownership Clarification

Similar to Season Passes, Dungeon Keys are applied to the first account that logs in after purchase, and moves between platforms with Cross Save.  

Dungeon Keys and Season Pass Premium Track rewards can’t be game shared between platform accounts, and must instead be purchased on each account that intends to access them. 

Game sharing is a platform feature and is not officially supported by Bungie. For more information, please see Bungie’s Help article

News from

Changes going live next week with Hotfix  

Solar Warlock: 

  • Heat Rises: 
    • Added behavior: Consuming your grenade now also releases a burst of Cure x2 around you, healing you and your nearby allies. Consuming a Healing Grenade increases the strength of the burst to Cure x3 and consuming a Touch of Flame Healing Grenade provides Restoration as an additional benefit.
  • Icarus Dash: 
    • Added behavior: While airborne, rapidly defeating targets with your Super or any weapon Cures you. 
  • Celestial Fire: 
    • Each Celestial Fire projectile now applies 10 Scorch stacks. This is increased to 15 stacks with Ember of Ashes equipped. 

Solar Titan: 

  • Burning Maul: 
    • Buffed damage in PvE by 25%  
  • Roaring Flames: 
    • Added behavior: While Roaring Flames is active, your uncharged melee attack now deals Solar damage and applies 30 Scorch stacks to targets per hit. This is increased to 40 stacks with Ember of Ashes equipped. 
  • Consecration: 
    • Fragment slots increased from 1 to 2. 
    • Raised the height of the secondary attack’s ground wave by 25% to more easily catch players who jump too late.  

Note from Bungie: On that note, what’s next for abilities? Well, Arc 3.0 is still cooking up nicely, and we’ll have more to talk about there in a future update. But just to reiterate points the team has made in the past about the next subclass update, after Arc 3.0 you should expect the abilities team to go dark for a little while. Since shipping Stasis with Beyond Light, the team has made huge abilities changes Season over Season. Over the last year, we’ve been back-to-back shipping new aspects for Stasis, adding the Variable Ability Cooldown system, and creating the three Subclass 3.0 experiences—it’s been busy. We hope the changes you’ve read today reinforce our commitment to being responsive to feedback and candid in our communication. We’ll be there right alongside you on the Derelict Leviathan snapping, slamming, and flipping our way to victory.
