Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2022 Release Date, New Weapons, & More

Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2022 featured

Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes 2022 has been renamed by Bungie to just be Destiny 2 Solstice from now on. It certainly saves us a mouthful, but old players might have to get used to the shortened moniker. Learn all about the Destiny 2 Solstice 2022 that’s heading your way.

Destiny 2 Solstice 2022 Release Date

Destiny 2 Solstice 2022 is set to release this July 19. This once-in-a-year event will last for one month and is set to begin once the weekly reset starts which happens every Tuesday. The 2022 Solstice event should go live around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST which are the usual times for weekly resets.

Destiny 2 Solstice 2022 New Events

Destiny 2 Solstice is introducing new events for 2022. Since the defeat of another Hive God, the Guardians are in for one interesting event commemorating their achievements. Bungie will be introducing new & returning events for the Solstice of Heroes this 2022.

  • Bonfire Bash: Guardians will start “paracasual bonfires” while enemy forces focus on extinguishing the fire.
  • Event Card: Guardians will be able to track challenges related to the Solstice event. An upgraded version of the Event Card can be purchased for 1,000 Silver. This will offer more special rewards which is said to be worth more than 3,000 Silver.
  • European Aerial Zone: The European Aerial Zone makes its return! This special area is only accessible once a year during the Solstice of Heroes event.

First up is the Bonfire Bash, which seems to be a new game mode that will task players with defending the bonfires they lit from enemy forces. These enemy forces are comprised of hostile races in Destiny 2 such as the Hive.

The Event Card functions like an event specific Battle Pass. It offers players unique rewards that they can earn while the event is live. If you’re willing to pay more, you can upgrade it a premium version which gives you even more unique rewards.

The European Aerial Zone is coming back. Though this time, only one set of armor can be upgraded by players. We’ll have to see more on this as the Destiny 2 Solstice event draws closer.

Destiny 2 Solstice 2022 New Weapons and Armor

Of course it wouldn’t be an event unless there are new weapons and armor being introduced in the Destiny 2 Solstice 2022. Although the list is incomplete, there are new weapons and armor that have been leaked on Twitter accounts.

We still aren’t sure how to earn this equipment. They may be mission specific rewards, or perhaps they’re related to the new Event Cards that are being introduced. Either way, more are to be unveiled as we draw closer to July 19, 2022.
