Make sure you get your bounties in ahead of the Weekly Rest in Destiny 2.

Knowing when your progress will reset is key to planning out the week ahead. Thankfully, Bungie’s weekly update comes at the exact same time every week unless otherwise specified.


The Destiny 2 Weekly Reset arrives every Tuesday at 10AM PT | 1PM ET | 6PM BST | 3AM AEST (Wednesday).

From raid progress to specific weekly bounties, just about everything will expire at the same time. So make sure you’re ahead of the update and don’t lose out on potential loot before it’s gone.
