Destiny 2 has added another Triumph title, “Splintered,” to the collection in Year 4, and it’s going to take a fair bit of trekking across Europa to unlock; here’s how to get your hands on the shiny new Beyond Light reward in Season 12.

Triumph titles are the ultimate badge of honor in Destiny 2. The grind to unlock them ⁠— seasonal titles notwithstanding ⁠— can be immense, and Guardians know exactly who they’re dealing with if they see “Unbroken” or “Conqueror” floating above an enemy’s head.

Beyond Light has added another Triumph title to the pool too: “Splintered.” The badge of honor is named after the expansion’s frosty Stasis power, and once it’s unlocked, represents the completion of all things Year 4 in Destiny 2, so far.

Here’s how to get your hands on Destiny 2’s new “Splintered” title.

To earn the Beyond Light title, you must complete what the game lists as 45 full steps. That list is a little smaller than it seems, thankfully; all up, there’s actually only 11 challenges you’ll have to navigate to get your hands on the Guardian emblem.

  • Studying Darkness: Find all Entropic Shards scattered across Europa.
  • Europan Collector: Complete the Europan Collector badge.
  • Master of the Hunt: Elective-difficulty hunt complete.
  • Masterful Saboteur: Complete all Tier 3 Sabotage quests from Variks.
  • Solo Lost Sector Mastery: Complete any Europa Lost Sector on Master difficulty without a fireteam.
  • Fallen Brig Brigade: As a fireteam, defeat Fallen Brigs as part of the “Crux Convergence” Public Event.
  • Training Complete: Complete all Exo Challenges.
  • Born in Darkness: Complete “Born in Darkness” missions.
  • Reuniting the Eventide Rookery: Recover all the penguin toys on Europa.
  • Salvage of the Past: Find all dead Exo collectibles hidden across Europa.
  • Secret Triumph: This objective is hidden in-game.

Most of these Triumphs aren’t that difficult to complete, especially easier ones like the “Solo Lost Sector Mastery” and the Heroic event-based “Fallen Brig Brigade” challenge.

There are also three ‘treasure hunt’ type challenges involved in unlocking the Splintered title in Beyond Light. These do require a little bit of trotting around, digging through secret areas on Europa.

Here’s our guides on each of these individual Triumphs:

Guardians will get pretty familiar with Europa during the “Splintered” title grind.

The final slog that comes with the “Splintered” grind is the ‘Europan Collector’ title Triumph. This is where the 45 challenges really come into play; Bungie sends you all over the new Beyond Light planet in search of enemies and challenges.

Unlike in the Season of Arrivals, Guardians will have to collect all the guns, armor pieces, and cosmetics from Beyond Light to unlock the Season 12 title.

Bungie winds back Destiny 2 plans to ‘vault’ The Moon & Dreaming City loot in Season 13

With the launch of Beyond Light, Bungie vaulted a great deal of Destiny 2 content. After just nine weeks, the developers have announced plans to backtrack on certain decisions, with loot from The Moon and the Dreaming City returning in Season 13.

The start of Year 4 in Destiny 2 came with some of the biggest changes in series history. A wide array of destinations, content, and loot were all locked away in a new vault. This was done in order to make way for fresh content with Beyond Light.

While much of the major content will remain locked away moving forward, Bungie is already going back on certain decisions in response to community feedback. Specifically, vaulted loot from The Moon and the Dreaming City will be returning in Season 13.

Various armor and weaponry was pulled from the loot pool with Beyond Light. Though after widespread backlash, it won’t be long until these destinations will have their exclusive gear back in stock.

Loot from the Dreaming City and the Moon will soon be added back into Destiny 2.

“We are making changes to help preserve the relevancy of the destinations,” rewards area lead Justin Dazet explained in the latest This Week At Bungie.

“Specifically, some of the pinnacle, end-game activities that still exist there.”

This means that new players and veterans alike will soon be able to earn appropriate gear at these destinations as they could in previous years.

Bungie confirmed that this returning gear won’t be “kept up to date for the entire lifetime these destinations are available.” Though they see the importance of having “specific activity drops” with relevance to the location you find yourself at.

These changes won’t come into effect immediately. Destiny 2 players hoping to round out their collections will have to be patient. The Season 13 update isn’t expected until February 9.

A good assortment of loot from the Moon and the Dreaming City will be back in rotation, however. It won’t just be a small sample.

You can check below for every piece of equipment that will be coming out of the vault in Season 13.

  • Reissued Dreaming City Reverie Dawn and Moon Dreambane armor.
