Destiny 2 might not be in its best current state, with community sentiment at an all-time low as they feel neglected with Bungie putting time and effort into other projects such as Marathon. Still, Guardians are hopeful Destiny 2 Season of the Witch can get things back on track.

While the Season of the Deep was a net positive, there are concerns within the Destiny 2 community that the game's emphasis on profitability has created a divide between players and developers.

Season of the Witch will be the third one of Year 6 that started with the Lightfall expansion alongside Season of Defiance.

Following the Destiny 2 The Final Shape showcase, where found out that the DLC would take place inside The Traveler among other things, including plenty of information about Season of the Witch!

Destiny 2 Season of the Witch- Start date

Destiny 2 Season of the Witch kicked off on 22 August, right after The Final Shape showcase ended.

Similar to other seasons, it'll last roughly three months before the fourth and final season in Year 6 starts.

Season of the Witch reprised raid date

Following the recent cadence of content release from Bungie, a reprised raid is set to return to Destiny 2 after fans got a new dungeon with Season of the Deep, Ghosts of the Deep.

The reprised raid making a return is Crota's End, as it was speculated. The raid will debut on 1 September, giving players roughly 10 days of prep time for the World's First challenge.

Season of the Witch Exotic mission rotation

Announced way back in February, Season of the Witch will see the debut of the Exotic mission rotation. This means that players who previously missed out on exclusive missions that rewarded them with exotic weapons will now have the opportunity to play them.

There are three missions due for a return, all handing out different exotic weapons. These are:

  • Vox Obscura - Dead Messenger grenade launcher
  • Presage - Dead Man's Tale scout rifle
  • Operation: Seraph's Shield - Revision Zero pulse rifle

Some of these guns were available via the Kiosk while others were sold by Xur. With Season 22 that will change, as DMT will no longer be a part of Xur's inventory.

Furthermore, each of these weapons will be craftable when their mission is available on the rotator!

Destiny 2 Season of the Witch season pass

Expect the usual assortment of content, including a new exotic weapon for both premium and free users, ornaments, emotes, and more.

The cost will remain the same, sitting at 1,200 Silver. The 200 Silver increase from previous seasons has proven to be a controversial one, with no signs of Bungie trying to make amends.

For context, players are not able to directly buy the exact quantity needed to purchase the season pass, instead being forced to buy the 1,500 Silver bundle.
