Destiny 2 Weekly Reset January 10 2023 – Arc 3.0 Armor, Weekly Activities, Eververse Store Updates, More

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset January 10 2023 Featured Image

This is your Destiny 2 Weekly Reset for January 10 2023. The first Iron Banner of the year is behind us. It seems Bungie is still trying to recapture the magic that is Eruption. But if you ask the player base, they’re either going to like it or hate it. cheesy tactics and farming aside, Bungie has something here. It just needs a little more time to develop.

And please give us the ability to fortify our positions next time. For better or worse, we don’t have to wonder if it was a good idea to allow Guardians to sit in spawn. Or not.

In any case, we are now in Step 46 of the “More than a Weapon” seasonal quest. We are a couple of more weeks until we see the conclusion of the quest and then we shall see what Bungie has in store for us pre-Lightfall.

And finally, for all the armor collectors out there, Bungie has started to gradually sell pieces of the Arc 3.0 armor for bright dust this week.

Update:

Also, Bungie has released its most recent update to Destiny 2, making sweeping changes through the various modes.

Destiny 2 Season of the Seraph Week 5 Story Recap

Another week, and another reason why we should stay the course. Rasputin may have gotten a new-found ability to communicate with us but he remains unable to take control of the WARSAT network directly. So yet again, we must keep doing what we’ve been doing since the start of the season: collect submind fragments.

At the same time, Osiris continues to dig deeper for his lead on Neptune. He is convinced that Rasputin knows something about Nefele stronghold.

After our usual mission, Elizabeth confines in us that Ana is starting to obsess about the project. She fears that Ana might be bound to the same path of despair as in other timelines. But she is hopeful that everything is going to be different this time.

Rasputin, for his part, is starting to see himself as humanity’s war god. A war god that will protect us from all our enemies. It seems like we’ve seen this movie before. Should we be worried?

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 AM BST for our readers in Britain. And 2 AM JST the following day for everyone in Japan.

Destiny 2 Weekly Activities January 10 – January 16 2023 Overview

This week’s Destiny 2 activity highlight is “If You Choose to Accept it, Part III” and unlocking the fourth column perks for Revision Zero. We’ll also get to the Outlaw Refit Intrinsic trait. Always a solid perk for PvE and PvP.

Aside from that, this week in Destiny 2 sees us getting a boost in Gambit. It’s another good opportunity to check the Gambit Veles-X pulse rifle ornament off the list and progress your Seraph Seal a little further.

Nightfall weapon this week

Now that enough weeks have passed, we have a solid grasp of the rotation of the Nightfall weapon rotation. With that being said, this week’s Nightfall featured drop will be the reprised Wendigo heavy grenade launcher.

Destiny 2 Crucible Featured Game Mode January 10 2022

Lord Shaxx has authorized the return of Rift to the Destiny 2 Crucible playlist. The real challenge of any Rift match is always the right time to approach the Spark in the middle of the map. The objective-based game modes are always good to shake things up from the usual PvP activities.

And don’t forget, this is yet another chance to complete your “Spark Defender” seasonal challenge.

Destiny 2 Featured Raid and Dungeon January 10 – January 16 2022

The second featured raid for the year is going to be the Last Wish. First appearing as the conclusion to the Forsaken storyline, our Guardians go to the Dreaming City and deal with Riven and the many other bosses of the raid.

Still in the Dreaming City, the Shattered Throne Dungeon is this week’s featured content. Journey to the depths of Queen Mara Sav’s corrupted throne world as we eliminate the source of the Taken’s hold on the place.

As usual, completing these featured content will reward you with pinnacle gear.

Last Wish Raid Challenges

The Summoning Ritual – Done during the Kalli encounter, the challenge asks you to activate all 9 plates, kill all knights, and kill all Ogres in the middle before doing damage to Kalli.

Which Witch Challenge – Done during the Shuro Chi encounter, do not get hit/take damage from Shuro Chi’s Arc Blast.

Forever Fight – Done during the Morgeth encounter, do not kill the small Ogres.

Keep Out – Done during the Vault encounter, unlock the vault and keep Might of Riven Knights out of the center room.

Destiny 2 King’s Fall Challenge This Week January 10 2023

This week’s King’s Fall Challenge is going to be Devious Thievery. This one takes place during the Warpriest encounter, and it asks the raid team to grab the “Brand of the Initiate” within a few seconds of acquiring the “Brand Claimer” buff. Timing and communication are what you’re going to need.

If you accomplish this, 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, necessary to Gild that King’s Slayer Seal.
