With ten weeks of challenges, the full list is available below.

What Are Destiny 2 Weekly Challenges?

Guardians can expect ten weeks of challenges over the course of Season of the Chosen.

Challenges will range from easy (Strike completions) all the way up to tougher ones like winning Trials of Osiris matches and completing the weekly Nightfall.

Not only will players be rewarded with XP to go towards their Season Pass, but there's also Bright Dust up for grabs. Bungie said players can earn around 34,000 Bright Dust by completing every challenge, meaning you can unlock plenty of cosmetics.

There also seems to be one "big" reward per week.
