Destiny 2’s new Weekly Challenges are here – here’s how to earn plenty of Bright Dust and XP in Season of the Risen via Destiny 2 Seasonal Challenges. 

Destiny 2’s latest season, Season of the Risen (Season 16), brings back the weekly challenges that players have come to expect from Bungie’s MMO/loot-shooter hybrid, and with the arrival of the Witch Queen, it’s a great time to log in.

These offer a great opportunity to level up your season pass in the game, earning sizeable amounts of XP for each one completed. Another benefit is Bright Dust, Bungie’s free-to-earn currency that allows players to buy a selection of rotating premium items including Armor Ornaments, emotes, and weapon customization options.

Now that all ten weeks of challenges are available, here’s every Season of the Risen seasonal challenge so far.
