Season of Defiance

Destiny 2’s Season of Defiance is upon us and introduces some fantastic weekly challenges with even more fantastic loot. Here are all the current Season of Defiance challenges in Destiny 2, as well as when they’ll refresh.

Along with the highly anticipated arrival of the Destiny 2: Lightfall campaign came the Season of Defiance. This season centers on a battle back on Earth, with key characters defending Earth against Shadow Cabal legions. While the story of the season is up at the forefront of the updated Destiny 2, it also comes with some exciting additions.

Along with weapons, currencies, and artifacts, the Season of Defiance also introduced some brand-new weekly challenges with some fantastic rewards. Here’s this week’s Season of Defiance challenges as well as their rewards and refresh time.

These challenges will expire weekly so get the rewards as soon as you can.

The Season of Defiance challenges will last throughout the Season of Defiance, and some will even last until the end of the Lightfall expansion next year. However, these offer huge boosts in XP and rewards, so while you are grinding and leveling at the start of the expansion, these are some of the best things you can be doing.

When do the Season of Defiance challenges expire?

The game’s weekly Season of Defiance challenges don’t expire until the end of the season, however, to make use of them you’re going to want to keep up with them. That’s especially true as every week, more will be added and it can be tough to keep up. More challenges are added every Tuesday at 9 AM PT/ 12 PM ET/ 5 pm GMT. This means that the next set of challenges will arrive in Destiny 2: Lightfall at 9 AM PT/ 12 PM ET/ 5 pm GMT on March 7th.

With that in mind, you’ll need to be quick to complete all the challenges and get their helpful rewards.
