Destiny 2 Season of Plunder arrives with Destiny 2 6.2.0 patch notesBungie

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.

Destiny 2 Season of Plunder is here, meaning Guardians have a whole new Season Pass to complete, as well as a new seasonal artifact. Thankfully, the Destiny 2 weekly reset will kick off a new series of activities for players to engage in to help grow their Power Level.

With added narrative implications, it’s arguably never been more important to log in each week, and doing so will reveal new seasonal challenges for Guardians to face ahead of Lightfall. Here’s everything to do before 6 PM BST/10 AM PT/1 PM ET on October 4, courtesy of the Destiny subreddit.
