This is your Destiny 2 Weekly Reset for December 13 2022. The Dawning 2022 is nearly here and while we don’t the specifics just yet, we can expect a new event card and title to earn. Above all else, however, we can expect to deliver cookies to more characters who were not present last year.
Destiny 2 Update 22.214.171.124
Destiny 2 Update 126.96.36.199 is set to go live this week. We will update this article once we know what the details are. We are hoping that they will address certain issues like broken mods and Rose not dropping after competitive placements.
Fixed an issue where the Lightning Surge Warlock melee ability was not correctly triggering the effects of the Felwinter’s Helm Exotic helmet.
Reworked the activation triggers and effects of the Gyrfalcon’s Hauberk Exotic chest. The new functionality is:
When you emerge form invisibility, your Void weapons gain Volatile Rounds for a short time.
When you perform a finisher on an enemy while you are invisible, you gain a temporary bonus to weapon damage and a reserve overshield for you and nearby allies.
Fixed an issue where hip-fire reticles were missing on Slug Shotguns
Pugilist, Demolitionist, and Wellspring now properly grant ability energy even when the ability is overridden. For example, melee abilities will now get energy from Wellspring when holding a Sword or Glaive
Fixed an issue where the Encore perk icon was showing when the weapon was stowed
Fixed an issue where the Enhanced Chain Reaction didn’t show that Swords receive improved guard endurance
Fixed an issue where Icarus Grip and Air Assault wouldn’t show the weapons improved Airborne Effectiveness value
While reversible, your maximum radar range is now capped at 24 meters.
Triumphs, Title, and Seasonal Challenges
Reduced the number of Triumphs required for the “Seraph” title from 10 to 9. Reduced the completion requirements by 50% for the Precision Loadout Seasonal Challenge
Fixed an issue where the incorrect Season was shown on the archive carousel
Destiny 2 Season of the Seraph Week 1 Recap
This week’s story in Destiny 2, we’ll see the continuation of the 54-step ‘More Than a Weapon’ quest.
Osiris and Anna Bray are hard at work restoring the Warmind AI, Rasputin. They have hit a wall, figuratively speaking, and must seek out the aid of the only person that knows Golden Age tech – Clovis Bray. But before they even get close to Europa, Hive forces led by Xivu Arath.
After breaking through the siege and convincing Bray that it is in his best interest to join forces with the guardians, the unlikely team returns back to the H.E.L.M. to talk next steps.
Their first goal now is to awaken the subminds that support Rasputin. The enemy knows this too. A transmission from Mara Sov informed the Guardian that the enemy plans to invade our space and is sending in advance forces to the Moon and Europa to secure the subminds.
As the dust settles in this first part of the attack, Ana and the Guardians are thinking that Xivu Arath’s play is to fully disable the Warsat network. Even worse, if they want, they can use it to destroy Earth once and for all.
This week’s story segment ends with Clovis Bray looking for another submind to activate.
Destiny 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 AM BST for our readers in Britain. And 2 AM JST the following day for everyone in Japan. (+1 hour for daylight savings).

Destiny 2 Crucible Featured Game Mode December 13 2022
Lord Shaxx has seen fit to return Mayhem to the Crucible. It will be part of the rotation of activities with a chance of it appearing for Guardians in the queue.
Destiny 2 Featured Raid and Dungeon December 13 – December 19 2022
We remain on the Moon as this week’s featured raid is going to be the Garden of Salvation. And alongside the raid, the Pit of Heresy is this week’s featured dungeon. There’s no escaping it, we’ll be seeing a lot of the Scarlet Keep this week.
And as usual, completing these featured content will reward you with pinnacle gear.
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.
Destiny 2 King’s Fall Challenge This Week December 13 2022
For the second week of the Season of the Seraph, this week King’s Fall Challenge is going to be Gaze Amaze. Done during the Gorgoroth encounter, this challenge will require the gaze holder to stand in the pool of Reclaimed Light when swapping the gaze to another member of the party. This is one of the more straightforward challenges throughout the raid.
Accomplish this and you and your raid team will be rewarded with an additional raid chest that contains Hallowed loot and some high-stat armor. And if you’ve been keeping track, you should have your Gilded King’s Slayer Seal.

Note: No Destiny 2 Dare of Eternity section to feature for a bit. It will take a couple of weeks until the rotation is fully known. Until that time, we will put this section on pause.
