Destiny 2 Weekly Reset (May 16): Nightfall, Activities & Crucible Rotations

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset information

The Destiny 2 weekly reset comes once a week. As Season of Defiance is slowing down, not much more in terms of story is expected, but plenty of activity resets abound, including the start of the Guardian Games.

With the final batch of seasonal challenges released last week, there's even less stuff to look forward to this time around, sadly.

With that in mind, here's our handy guide to every available activity in Destiny 9 for the current event week.

Destiny 2 weekly reset - May 16 2023

Below you'll find the Destiny 2 weekly reset released on May 16. All details and activities below will reset again on May 16 at 5 PM GMT.

As soon as the reset takes place, we'll update this page with all the new info.


This week the Nightfall is Lake of Shadows in the European Dead Zone. It's perfect for free to play Guardians as you don't require any DLC of any kind to participate in it.

If you would like to see all the various modifiers for the Nightfall this week, follow the link, where we've listed everything you need to know for Adept, Hero, Legend, Master and Grandmaster levels.

Weekly Crucible rotator

For this week we have Clash. So if you're bored of grinding the exclusive Guardian Games Supremacy mode, this one will be a nice change of pace.

Destiny 2 features plenty of activities

Destiny 2 daily reset times

Daily resets also occur at 5 PM GMT but offer fewer content refreshes.

Expect new daily bounties to be available at vendors, and one activity will refresh, too - it could be the Crucible, Strikes, or Gambit.

That means it's usually worth logging in just to see what you can complete for some new loot.

Destiny 2 weekend reset guides

Destiny offers unique rotations on Fridays.

This includes Xur, Agent of the Nine, a well-known merchant selling exotic weapons, armour, and other curios in exchange for Legendary Shards. If you want to know where is Xur and what he is selling this week, follow the link.
