It’s the top of the hour on a Tuesday in Destiny 2, which means a whole new week has begun during the Season of Plunder storyline.
As the current saga begins to race towards its conclusion, things are starting to wind down in the seasonal challenges portion of the game. There aren’t too many goals to aim for, but if you want to get that Scallywag title, you’ll need to get some new Repute this week.
Grab a machine gun or sword this week and head down to blast your way through some powerful Vex to get your first piece of Repute. If you collect and mod seasonal weapons, you can easily grab the second piece of Repute by uploading them with a quick grind in your favorite Lost Sectors.
If you’re up for a challenge, you can tackle a Legendary Lost Domain and maybe even earn a new Exotic like Fallen Sunstar or Point-Contact Cannon Braces, depending on the gear rotations this week.
This steady flow of experience will help you fill up your season pass sooner so you can grab even more loot in the process to equip your Guardian in Season of Plunder. You can also tackle seasonal challenges at your own pace, as they will expire once the season ends in December. If you decide to take a break from Destiny 2 for a week or two, you can come back and complete multiple challenges at once.

How do seasonal challenges work?
Seasonal Challenges can be accessed from the Quests tab in your main menu, where you’ll find tasks that revolve around eliminating certain enemies with a specific item, participating in one of the game’s new activities, or completing a Raid. Each challenge can be completed once per account and each week will typically add around 10 new challenges that will be active during the season.
Completing the Season of Plunder challenges will satisfy the seasonal challenge requirements, which in turn will net you a large Bright Dust reward that you can spend in the Eververse store on select cosmetics, emotes, and items.
