Destiny 2 Weekly Reset March 21 2023 – First Iron Banner of Lightfall

Here's what you can expect for fourth week of the Season of Defiance and Lightfall

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset March 21 2023

This is our Destiny 2 weekly reset article for the week of March 21, 2023. But before we talk about what’s coming up this week, we would like to take a moment in remembrance of Lance Reddick or Commander Zavala to many of us Guardians.

We will continue our watch over the Last City. May you rest in peace.

Iron Banner returns to Destiny 2 for the first time in Lightfall. This time around, Lord Saladin will be bringing back the classic mode, Iron Banner Control.

We’ll also receive more steps in the Seasonal quest. Hopefully, see more interactions between Amanda Holiday and daddy Mithrax. This is also the week when all the War Table upgrades will be unlocked. If you’ve been holding out until now, now’s the time to get the best seasonal activity upgrades.

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 March 21- March 27 2023 Overview

Don’t forget this week is your chance to do the Iron Banner challenge by completing matches. We didn’t get a chance to do so last week on account of the schedules being switched for Trials of Osiris.

All Vanguard activities will see a noticeable increase in rank gains. If you’re still chasing the Vanguard ornament for the Ecliptic Distaff, this is your chance to speed things up.

Where is Xur? March 24 2023

It’s that time of the week again when everyone in the Destiny 2 community asks the question – Where is Xur?

This weekend Xur can be found hanging around his favorite branch overlooking the Watcher’s Grave on Nessus. Once you’re planet-side, head North along the cliff face, and once you start seeing the roots, go up to reach Xur.

And what’s our favorite Destiny 2 agent of the Nine selling this week? Let’s see.

Destiny 2 Nightfall This Week March 21 – March 27 2023

The featured Nightfall for this week is the Arms Dealer over at the EDZ. It’s an old Strike that’s well overdue a refresh. With content is generally on the harder side now, it would be wise not to think that it’ll be a cakewalk.

Nightfall weapon this week


This week’s Nightfall weapon is apparently going to be the Militia’s Birthright grenade launcher. This lightweight GL has some uses in more difficult content as it comes with disorienting grenades.

Destiny 2 Crucible Featured Game Mode March 21 2023

This week Lord Shaxx has authorized the return of Momentum Control. It is just like regular old Control but everything has been cranked up to 11. Even the mode’s lethality hasn’t been spared.

Destiny 2 Featured Raid and Dungeon March 21 – March 27 2023

This week’s featured raid sees us going back to another classic that harkens back to the early days of Destiny, Vault of Glass.
