Destiny 2 Weekly Reset: New Content For Oct 23, 2018

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset: New Content For Oct 23, 2018

report this ad

At times, Destiny has been a franchise that has gone through long content droughts, which never sat well with the community. Destiny 2 has been much better in preventing these stretches, and this past week likely overwhelmed many players with things to do. Not only did the Halloween-themed Festival of the Lost kick off as well as the usual weekly and daily bounties, but the Iron Banner also returned for the second time this season. This time around, Bungie made a number of improvements to the mode including less harsh bounty requirements, more powerful gear rewards, and increased Valor gains across Iron Banner, Weekly, and Quickplay modes.

While Lord Saladin has packed up and left the Tower, the Festival of the Lost enters its second week for players to acquire new masks and the high powered Horror Story auto rifle. Players can still dive into the Haunted Forest zone for their chance at Fragmented Souls, but starting next week, the murder mystery quest with Master Ives begins. While not much is known, players are expecting to see some familiar things during this quest including the return of a particular exotic machine gun as well as a location players have not seen in quite a while.

Until then, the weekly reset has returned to Destiny 2, which refreshes all available challenges and content. FOr a look at all of the new missions, Nightfalls, Crucible modes, and challenges, have a look at our weekly guide below.

Nightfall Strike Details

Nightfall Strike Options: The Arms Dealer, Insight Terminus, The Hollowed Lair

The three Nightfall choices this week include the return of Braccus Zahn in The Arms Dealer as well as The Insight Terminus, a former Vex Installation that is being utilized by the Cabal. Interestingly enough, The Hollowed Lair is again available this week, giving players another seven days to farm the Mindbender’s Ambition shotgun.

Each option starts at a recommended power level of 540, so players may want to grind for new gear a bit before taking on these missions. Keep in mind that players can only select a Nightfall from expansions they already own, so The Arms Dealer will be the only option for non-Forsaken and Warmind owners.

Nightfall Challenges:

  • Equipment Locked: Once the mission starts, players can no longer switch their currently equipped gear.
  • Extinguish: Once a fireteam dies in a restricted zone, they’re returned to orbit.

Nightfall Exclusive Rewards:

  • The Arms Dealer – Tilt Fuse sparrow.
  • Insight Terminus – The Long Goodbye energy sniper rifle.
  • The Hollowed Lair – Mindbender’s Ambition energy shotgun.

Flashpoint Location

Flashpoint Location: European Dead Zone

The Flashpoint challenge for this week heads back to Earth within the European Dead Zone. Players can gain progress on this challenge by taking part in Public Events, finishing Heroic adventures, and clearing out Lost Sectors. Consult our heroic modifier guide for public events to help finish this a bit faster.

Visit Devrim Kay within the church bell tower within Trostland once the milestone reaches 100% to receive his powerful reward for the week.

Tower Objectives and World Bounties

With the reset here, the weekly bounties from many of the Vendors in game have also been restocked. Let’s have a quick look:

  • Tess Everis continues to have her set of daily Eververse Bounties as well as a special weekly in exchange for glimmer that awards a Prismatic Facet instead of bright dust. Keep in mind that for players with 3 Prismatic Facets, no more can be held so make sure to use them before completing the new weekly bounty from Eververse.
  • Suraya Hawthorne also has her daily clan and raid bounties players can pick up, which go towards finishing her weekly clan XP challenge. Right next door to Suraya is Ikora Rey, who awards powerful gear each week for players that complete 20 bounties. Players have plenty of options for completing this including Shaxx, The Drifter, and Zavala with their usual associated game mode bounties as well.
  • Forsaken players can visit The Spider at the Tangled Shore as his weekly Wanted bounties have been refreshed. This week, the reformed Fallen finally has a new Powerful Reward bounty for Silent Fang. Players can find this creature within the EDZ.
  • Visit The Dreaming City and Petra Venj for weekly and daily bounties offering powerful rewards, Dark Fragments, and more.

Crucible Milestone and Weekly Playlist
