Destiny 2 Weekly Reset May 24: Nightfall, reset time, new activities

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 may have launched in 2017, but the game shows no signs of slowing down, with Season 17, now known as Season of the Haunted, finally arriving. Calus is back, Solar subclasses have been given the 3.0 treatment, and there’s a whole new season pass to complete.

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. Here’s everything to do before 6 PM BST/10 AM PT/1 PM ET on May 24, courtesy of the Destiny subreddit.
