Another Tuesday brings another reset in Destiny 2, offering plenty for players to do. The Tuesday reset is Destiny 2‘s equivalent to a fresh slate, kicking off another seven days of content and resetting the weekly caps across the title.

This means Powerful and Pinnacle caps, raid challenges, vendor challenges, activities, and encounter lockouts are all reset, and players can have a shot to earn them again for the next seven days. Each week also changes the Nightfall in rotation, the rotating mode in the Crucible, the Eververse stock for Bright Dust, and stock on some of the vendors across the galaxy.

Xûr will also visit on Friday reset and leave on the subsequent Tuesday. During that same period of time, Trials of Osiris is active, provided it’s not the first week of the season or if Iron Banner isn’t available. On Iron Banner weeks, however, Saint-14 will take a rest.

Here’s what there is to do this week in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset (June 21 to 28)

The new weekly lockout resets Pinnacles and Powerful drops, as well as vendor challenges, raid and dungeon drops, and more. In some cases, it will introduce a new cycle, including a new Nightfall Strike and weapon, progress (or regress) the Curse in the Dreaming City, and cycle raid challenges.

Vanguard, Nightfalls, and other playlist activities

  • Nightfall: The Inverted Spire
    • Champions: Barrier, Unstoppable
    • Shields: Arc, Solar, Void
    • Burn: Arc
  • Crucible: Labs: Zone Control
  • Gambit: Double XP
  • Trials of Osiris (Fri-Tue): Freelance

Raid rotation and challenges

Each week, one challenge is available across each raid. Completing it grants an extra drop, as well as a triumph if it is the first time doing it. For Vault of Glass and Vow of the Disciple, finishing the challenge on the Master difficulty will drop an Adept (or Timelost) version of the weapon.

  • Vow of the Disciple: Base Information (Caretaker)—Runners must pick up one symbol at a time.
  • Vault of Glass: Strangers in Time (Gatekeepers)—kill each Wyvern and Praetorian within seconds of each other.
  • Deep Stone Crypt: The Core Four (Taniks)—Deposit all four cores before DPS phases. This has become the go-to strategy for this encounter, even when the challenge is not available.
  • Garden of Salvation: A Link to the Chain (second encounter)—Teams must refresh their Enlightened buff at the same time.
  • Last Wish: All active challenges.

Raid and dungeon rotation

  • Rotating raid: Last Wish
  • Rotating dungeon: Shattered Throne

Vendor resets and weekly lockouts

  • Vendor challenges: Commander Zavala, Banshee-44, Lord Shaxx, The Drifter, Hawthorne, Saint-14, The War Table.
  • Vendor weapons and armor: Banshee-44, Ada-1 (mods change every day).
  • Raid and dungeon encounter lockout: All activities (Master and Normal versions of raids have different lockouts, but both reset on Tuesdays). Most dungeons will only give you new loot for the first time that week, but players can farm for items they already have. Duality and the weekly dungeon can always give you new gear.
  • Weekly Pinnacle missions: Vox Obscura, Preservation.
  • Weekly bounties: Shaw Han, Variks, Petra Venj.
  • Eververse: New stock for Bright Dust, new weekly sales.


Savathûn’s Throne World

  • Weekly mission: The Ritual
    • “Disrupt Savathûn’s ritual to steal the Traveler by revealing a lost secret from her past.”

Dreaming City


  • Empire Hunt: The Technocrat (Praksis)
  • Eclipsed Zone: Cadmus Ridge

What time is the weekly reset in Destiny 2?

The weekly reset kicks off every Tuesday at 5pm UTC (12pm CT with Daylight Saving Time). Bungie’s schedule is adjusted based on the UTC timezone and may change during Daylight Savings. The daily reset also takes place at 5pm UTC and changes every day. Most bounties refresh daily, but other activities have weekly lockouts.

At 5pm UTC (12pm CT with Daylight Saving Time) on Fridays, both Xûr and Trials of Osiris will be available until the next weekly reset, the following Tuesday. Xûr will bring a series of Exotics, including one weapon and one piece of armor for each class.

The intergalactic merchant also brings a selection of Legendary guns and armor, and in some cases, this may be the only way to obtain them. He will also offer a quest that drops an Exotic Cipher per week, letting you obtain some Exotics from the Monument to Lost Lights in the Tower.

Trials of Osiris, on the other hand, is Destiny 2‘s most hard-fought PvP mode. Like Xûr, Trials is available from Friday to Tuesday, provided it’s not the first week of the season or that Lord Saladin (or Bracus Forge) isn’t bringing the Iron Banner to the Tower.
