With each Tuesday comes a fresh weekly reset in Destiny 2 and we’ve got everything you need to know for this week, from Nightfall to Throne World, Europa, and Legacy activities. Here’s the full Destiny 2 weekly reset (January 17).

Destiny 2‘s Season of the Seraph has finally arrived, and it started with a bang, bringing Guardians and Rasputin together again, as well as reintroducing Ana Bray and Osiris.

There’s also a whole new season pass, seasonal artifact, and seasonal challenges to complete, meaning you’ll want to log in every week ahead of Lightfall.

Here’s everything to do before the Destiny 2 weekly reset time at 5 PM GMT/10 AM PT/1 PM ET on January 17, courtesy of the Destiny subreddit.
