We're well into Destiny 2's Season of the Chosen, but Trials of Osiris, the game's premier PvP mode has been bumpier than ever.
Not for the first time, Bungie has needed to disable the game mode in the last month following a match re-join glitch.
Thankfully, it's back on track and returning this weekend (April 16) for another round of sweaty PVP.
If you're new to Destiny 2, we've got everything you need to know about the Trials of Osiris mode, just below.
But if you're also interested in the lore behind the game mode, have a watch of the below video from My name is Byf.
What is Trials of Osiris?
Trials of Osiris is the game's highest tier PvP content. Teams duke it out in an elimination-style match, and do their best to get to Flawless - that's a seven-game win streak.
Players can lose a match or two, but any more will see them ejected - but the mode offers some great rewards.
Don't forget that Trials of Osiris is a weekend-only activity, so you won't be able to play it after the weekly reset takes place every Tuesday.
In terms of lore, one popular fan theory is that the lighthouse featured in the mode is actually drawing the Darkness nearer - setting up the events of Beyond Light.

Trials of Osiris Weekly Callout Map
If you want some help whilst playing, graphic designer and Twitch streamer Relikt has created another great callouts map (below), which could come in handy for your squad when playing this weekend.
Trials of Osiris Passages - How They Work
players can purchase 'Trials Passages' from Saint-14. There are five unique Passages that can be bought from Saint-14 which offer their own mechanics. Each Passage will track wins and losses in a single Trials run. If three losses appear on a Passage, players will be restricted from the activity and have to either reset the Passage or purchase a new one.
The five Passage's available are listed below, along with each Passage bonus:
- Mercy (Always available) - Forgives one loss per run.
- Ferocity (Always available) - With zero losses, your Third Win grants a Bonus Win.
- Confidence (Unlocks after going Flawless) - Grants a bonus reward from the Flawless chest.
- Wealth (Unlocks at 5 wins) - Increased Trials tokens from completing and winning Trials matches.
- Wisdom (Unlocks at 7 wins) - Grants bonus XP from Trials Wins, scaling with the number of Wins on a Ticket.
It's also worth noting that Passages can be used throughout a Trials weekend and can be Reset at any time. But, only one Passage can be purchased at a time, with players allowed to switch them out when new ones unlock. Keep in mind that progress will reset with each Passage purchase.
Trials of Osiris Bounties - How They Work
Saint-14 will also be selling Trials of Osiris Bounties. There are three available and they will reward players with extra goodies when you complete them in the Trials.
- Weekly Bounties will reward XP, Glimmer, 35 Valor Rank Points, and 5 Trials Tokens;
- Daily Bounties will reward XP, 15 Valor Rank Points, and 2 Trials Tokens
- Additional Bounties will offer XP and 2 Trials Tokens.
