Destiny 2 Weekly Reset October 04 2022 – Grandmaster Nightfall Returns, Weekly Activities, Eververse Store Updates, and More

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset October 04 2022 Featured Image

This is your Destiny 2 weekly reset for October 04, 2022. This week sees the return of Grandmaster Nightfalls to Destiny 2. We really hope that Bungie fixes whatever was wrong with the Gyrfalcon’s Hauberk. It’s been one ‘fix’ after another with the new Exotics. It’s just a shame that what needed to be fixed was an Exotic that was actually useful. (Sorry Point-Contact Cannon Brace.)

But enough about that, next up we have a little of last week’s story update and a look at this week’s scheduled activities. Including double rewards in Nightfalls thanks to the return of Grandmaster Nightfall.

As of the writing of this article, we are Step 49 of 62 in the Sails of the Shipstealer questline. By our estimate, we are only a couple of weeks away from the quest’s conclusion and the season’s first half.

Destiny 2 Hotfix

Before we talk about the latest seasonal story update, let’s go ahead and talk about the hotfix that’s coming to the game this week. According to Bungie, next Tuesday, October 4, Destiny 2 Hotfix will be released. It will include the following changes:

  • To alleviate some of the pressure in acquiring Season of Plunder weapon patterns, the Double Perk Weapon Spoils Crew Upgrade will now give you a Deepsight modded weapon the first time you focus a weapon each week.
  • The Deepsight modded weapon from the Hidden Compartment Crew Upgrade will now appropriately refresh at the weekly reset.

These are the changes that Bungie announced at last week’s TWAB. We expect there to be more changes as the hotfix goes live tomorrow.

Gyrfalcon’s Hauberk Fix Update

From the Bungie Help Twitter account, a fix for the Gyrfalcon’s Hauberk Exotic is on the way. It’s planned to roll out in mid-October.

Bungie also announced this week that they have introduced a few changes that made things easier for players to get red border weapons. Makes you wonder why they didn’t just make it so from the start of the season.

Season Story Update

After last week’s bombshell, this week’s story update felt more like a calm before the storm. Drifter and Eido had a talk and Eido is starting to understand why her father chose to hide things the way he did. (I still can’t get over the fact that Drifter’s name was once Germaine.)

Mistraaks, for his part, has started to step up and is in the process of revealing everything with the hope of finally putting the past behind him. All he asks for is a little patience for everyone involved.

Meanwhile, the artifacts’ whispers are slowly becoming audible. And from the looks of it, there is room enough for two more artifacts of Darkness. We are nearing the end of this particular questline in a couple of weeks’ time at the latest. If Eramis wasn’t desperate then, she certainly is now.

Also, what does the Lucent Hive have to do with all of this? Are they under orders from Immaru… or carrying out Savathun’s? We’ll find out in due time.

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.
