Here's everything that's in store for Destiny 2 starting on August 30, 2022

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset August 30 Featured Image

This is your Destiny 2 weekly Reset August 30. The second week of the Season of Plunder is right around the corner and we are getting some pretty significant updates for Destiny 2 in terms of upcoming activities. But before all that, let’s get a recap of what happened at the end of Week 1’s story.

Destiny 2 Season of Plunder Week 1 Recap

So the Guardian and the Drifter, with the help of Mitrax and Spider, are in the beginning stages of putting a crew together in order to figure what Eramis is up to. The newly freed leader of House Salvation is up to something and it involves the old “Pirate” clans and artifacts of a bygone age.

The week ended with us successfully going on our first expedition and raiding the lair of the first pirate lord. The artifact we brought back is currently being deciphered and we should have an update for it very soon.

For the second week, expect a new Ketchcrash boss, a new hideout, and around 10 new weekly challenges.

As for the game itself, we are pleased to report that Bungie has fully unlocked the Fragments for Arc 3.0. Here’s to hoping that they are close to unlocking heavy grenade launchers as well.

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset Time

As always, The Destiny 2 weekly reset times are 10 AM PDT for the folks on the West Coast of the US. 6 PM BST for those in Britain. And 2 AM JST the following day for everyone in Japan.

This week’s featured Nightfall will be “The Lightblade”. It’s always nice to return this one, even if was a recently added Strike alongside The Witch Queen expansion. There will also be a Nightfall weapon, we’ll update the article once we know what it is.

Grandmaster Nightfall

We will update this article once we get the details.


For the Crucible, Rift is going to return as the featured playlist for the week. That’s right. Right is no longer an Iron Banner exclusive activity.


For Gambit, we’ll see bonus ranks all week long. So, if you want to run anything inside of the Gambit mode or level up, it’s a good time to do so.

Raid and Dungeon

This week’s Featured raid is “Garden of Salvation” along with all the raid challenges and defeating the boss will net you pinnacle gear. The same can be said about this week’s featured dungeon, “Pit of Heresy”.

Garden of Salvation Raid Challenges

  • Zero to One Hundred – Done during the Sanctified Mind (4th encounter), Once you deposit motes, you have 10 seconds to fully fill the bank. This applies to both banks.
  • To the Top – Done during the Consecrated Mind (3rd encounter), it requires the player to deposit 10 motes at a time.
  • A Link to the Chain – Done during the Draw Out the Consecrated Mind Encounter (2nd Encounter), all six fire team members must replenish enlightenment at the same time. Three pairs of 2 also work too, apparently.
  • Staying Alive – During the first encounter, do not kill any of the Cyclops in the room where the Consecrated Mind is depositing Voltaic Overflow charges.

Lost Sectors

The Lost Sector after Tuesday’s reset is still unknown. The community’s getting close to figuring it out. But for now, the activity will drop Exotic gauntlets on solo clears. The three lost sectors for this week are still classified. We’ll update the article when we know what they are. However, we do know what the Exotic drops are.

Do note that though they may be the featured Exotics, there is a chance you can still obtain other Exotics that are not in your collection. The featured set just means you have a higher chance of getting them, but it is never guaranteed.
