Destiny 2 Week 5 Season of the Lost Challenges (September 21-28)

Seasonal Challenges are here to stay and with Season of the Lost there are more ways than ever to earn XP, gear, Bright Dust, and more for your guardian. The new season brings back Queen Mara, and will no doubt help us figure out what's going on with Osiris and Savathun - the Witch Queen. So from a lore perspective, there are plenty more reasons to finish these weekly challenges. If you're looking to grind to the top of your Season Pass, you'll want to ensure you're completing the game's Weekly Challenges as they become available. These arrive at the same time as the Weekly Reset, and are well worth chipping away at. Here's everything you need to know.

What Are Destiny 2 Weekly Challenges?

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

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 more tangible reward per week, such as a specific weapon.

All Seasonal Challenges Leaked

Prior to the launch of Season of the Lost Reddit user nutty-max managed to datamine the Seasonal Challenges. We've added this info below, but as always, the datamined challenges are subject to change so make sure to bookmark this page and check-in following each weekly reset.
