Destiny 2 Daily Reset Guide


Daily Resets also occur at 6 PM BST, but they offer much 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 a couple of unique rotations on Fridays.

The first, Xur, is a merchant that sells exotic weapons and armour, as well as other curios in exchange for legendary shards.

Find out Xur's location and inventory here.


The other is Trials of Osiris, a high-level PvP mode that will earn you some amazing rewards based on how many wins you secure.

Find out about the Trials of Osiris rewards here.

Both Xur and Trials will leave the game at the next weekly reset, on Tuesdays at 6 PM BST.
