Destiny 2’s pinnacle PVP activity, Trials of Osiris returns yet again for another season. If you want to know what those week’s featured map and weapon are, we have all that and more in this breakdown of the looter shooter’s most competitive mode.

Season of the Wish continues where Lightfall’s other season left off. This season Destiny players will have the opportunity to farm two brand new weapons, Eye of Sol and Incisor.

Although the playlist has historically struggled with issues like cheaters, account recovery services, and technical issues within the broader Destiny 2 experience, Bungie has rolled out some fresh tweaks in recent seasons to improve things.

Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect from Trials of Osiris:

  • Trials will only be available to players who own Lightfall.
  • You can keep playing once you’ve accrued three losses and still earn gear (although Trials will only offer its best rewards to Flawless runs).
  • PC players will now notice BattlEye anti-cheat is in effect.
  • Perhaps the biggest change is that Trials of Osiris now offers matchmaking.

Trials of Osiris map this week (April 12 – 16)

The featured Trials of Osiris map this week is Rusted Lands, a Crucible map located in the EDZ that is fairly small but offers a balance of CQB and long-range encounters.

Trials of Osiris rewards (April 12 – 16)

Rather than the 3, 5, 7, and Flawless win thresholds previously required for rewards, players no longer earn specific weapon drops. Instead, you’ll earn Trials Engrams for leveling up your reputation with Saint-14 in the Tower’s Hangar.

This weekend’s rewards for Trials of Osiris are as follows:

  • Rank 4 – Upgrade Module (x2)
  • Rank 7 – Enhancement Prism (x3)
  • Rank 10 – Incisor (Strand Trace Rifle)
  • Rank 13 – Upgrade Module (x2)
  • Rank 16 – Eye of Sol (Kinetic Sniper Rifle)
  • Featured Weapon – The Summoner (Adept)

Once a Trials of Osiris reward has been unlocked, you can focus it for the cost of a Trials Engram – meaning farming rolls has never been easier. Also, you can get better gear with higher stat rolls by going Flawless.

Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Passages explained

With the playlist revamp in Season of the Lost, Trials of Osiris underwent some changes to its Passages. These items grant you access to the Trials playlist each weekend, and there are some important changes to note under the new system:

  • Passages no longer track losses
    • Each Passage is either Flawless or not, which allows you to keep playing and earning rewards regardless of how many losses you suffer
    • Players can still reset their Passage after a loss, but are no longer forced to do so after hitting three losses on their card
  • Passages now track up to 20 rounds won
  • All Passages have had their prices significantly reduced
  • Passages are now account-wide, meaning you can play and earn rewards on any of your characters using the same Passage

These changes and what they mean for you when gearing up for the playlist can be pretty confusing. Fortunately, we have a breakdown of each Passage, what it does, and which one might be right for you:

  • Passage of Mercy: Will now forgive two losses if you have not been Flawless for the week. Once you have been flawless, this will only offer one.
    • If your goal is to make it all the way to the Lighthouse, this is the Passage for you. You’ll get one free loss without needing to reset your card and start from scratch
  • Passage of Ferocity: This Passage grants you a bonus win after reaching three wins on your card
    • Usually the next choice behind Mercy for Flawless runs, this will allow you to skip an entire match on your way to the Lighthouse — but, you won’t have the loss forgiveness that comes with Mercy
  • Passage of Wealth: Will reward extra Trials rank on every win, the amount rewarded increases as your major rank increases.The
    • If you’re more focused on farming Trials rewards, and aren’t concerned about going Flawless, this is the card for you. With the new Trials reputation system, the Passage of Wealth will bump up your rank with Saint-14 more quickly than any other card
  • Passage of Confidence: This Passage grants a bonus reward from the Flawless chest, but you can only acquire this card after already going Flawless that week
    • If you’re confident about your skills and have a solid fireteam to play with, the Passage of Confidence can help you rack up more rewards at the Lighthouse, but is arguably the most difficult Passage to play
  • Passage of Persistence: This Passage reduces the impact of losses by rewarding the weekly Adept weapon at seven wins, regardless of how many games it takes.
    • While Passage of Wealth provides better rewards overall, this is a great option for casual players who want to obtain an Adept weapon but lack the consistency to go flawless.

Picking the right Passage for you (and your teammates, if you plan on entering Trials with a pre-made fireteam) will go a long way towards making sure you get the most out of your time in the playlist each weekend.

Trials of Osiris weekly Destiny 2 reset

Trials of Osiris will next go live on Friday (April 19) at daily reset (10 A.M. PDT / 1 P.M. EDT / 5 P.M. GMT / 7 P.M. CET) and will run until the following Tuesday (April 23).

Before diving into the competition, you’ll need to make a stop at The Tower’s Hangar and talk to Saint-14, the Destiny 2 vendor who oversees Trials. He’ll be your main source of bounties and rewards throughout the week, and the person who provides each of your Trials Passages.

There you have it, that’s everything you need to know about the Trials of Osiris map and rewards for this week. Make sure to jump into the playlist with a couple of your buddies before next week’s reset puts the game mode on its typical hiatus.
