Here are all the things coming to Destiny 2 in the ninth week of Season 18

Destiny 2 Weekly Update October 18 2022 Featured Image

This is Destiny 2 Weekly Reset for October 18 2022. This week we are taking a break from season 18’s story and instead spend the next three weeks trying to frantically fill out our event cards for this year’s Festival of the Lost. (Also, congratulations to Team Mech. Can’t wait to start wearing my event armor and having spooky times with it on.)

Destiny 2 Update 6.2.5

The newest Update 6.2.5 will go live shortly. The changes include balance changes to many of the game’s weapons. There are too many to list but if you’re looking for a summary, best to have a look at Bungie’s website. Just ask for Mercules.

Ok, that’s all for announcements. Let’s go through what we can expect in the ninth week of Season 18 after this week’s Destiny 2 Weekly Reset.

Sails of the Ship Stealer Story Recap

Alright, we’ve had a fairly exciting ride so far with this season’s storyline. So here are the broad strokes for everything that’s happened so far in bullet form:

Destiny 2 weekly reset september 13 2022
  • Eramis has escaped from her icy prison on Europa.
  • She banded together the worst of the worst from houses associated with raiding and pillaging.
  • In order to fight her in this new theater of war, Drifter, together with Mistraaks and Spider, forms a “Pirate” alliance in order to counter Eramis and her crew.
  • Eido is also brought into the operation to observe and chronicle the events for House Light.
  • It was then discovered that Eramis was collecting Artifacts with the assumption that she will offer them to the Witness for some kind of reward.
  • We then spent a number of weeks gathering the Artifacts while dealing with personal issues stemming from family secrets.
  • We discover that the artifacts we are looking for are the pieces of Nezarec, a disciple of the Witness.
  • Eramis reveals the truth about Eido’s father, further distancing father and daughter.
  • Time passes and family relations are at their lowest. Eido then goes to acquire the last artifact without Mithrax in an attempt to prove that she can do this without her.
  • The Guardian and Mithrax arrive in the nick of time only to find that Eramis was protecting Eido while she does she retrieves the artifact.
  • Both House Kell lock sabers in a duel with the future of both houses on the line.
  • Mithrax wins in the end but refuses to prove Eramis right by not slaying her in front of Eido. Eramis escapes to pillage and burn another day.
  • Mitrax and Eido believe they can use the Artifacts as some kind of weapon against the Witness. It’ll take time for their research to bear fruit.

And that’s it for the story recap. Check back with us again for the latest in the Destiny 2 storyline as we prepare to go toe-to-toe with the Witness. There are also rumblings of a community event involving the Eliksni quarter, so do watch out for that should it come to pass.

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.

This week also sees a bonus added to Vanguard activities.

Where is Xur? October 21 2022

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 on the cliff overlooking the Winding Cover in the EDZ. Just head North of the fast-travel spot and look for the cave that’s directly under his airship.

Destiny 2 Nightfall This Week October 18 2022 – October 24 2022

This week’s featured Nightfall will be the Fallen S.A.B.E.R. strike. Always a fun one especially when you’re spelunking through the interior of the AI Warmind, Rasputin. (Careful with the alternating electrical spikes.)

You can also take advantage of this week’s bonus to Vanguard Ranks.

Nightfall weapon this week

Additionally, this week’s Nightfall weapon is the Duty Bound Legendary Auto Rifle. A solid choice especially when you have the right Champion Mod equip for the job.

Destiny 2 Crucible Featured Game Mode October 18 2022

We are getting Clash back into the Crucible rotation this week. Death Match in its purest. Pile on the pressure for 10 straight minutes of back-and-forth PvP. Unless Lord Shaxx has seen enough and calls the match early after looking at the lopsided score. Destiny 2 is a fun game.


Trials of Osiris

The no team version of Trials of Osiris is up for this weekend. Good luck, Guardians.

Destiny 2 Featured Raid and Dungeon October 18 2022 – October 24 2022

This week sees the Vault of Glass as the featured raid and the Shattered Throne as the featured Dungeon. The Vex will be your enemies within the Vault of Glass while the Fallen will make your ascent a nightmare within the Shattered Throne.

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

Vault of Glass Raid Challenges

Wait for it… – Done during the Confluxes encounter, every yellow-bar Wyvern must be killed as they are sacrificing themselves to the confluxes
The Only Oracle for You – Done during the Oracles encounter, players cannot destroy the same oracle more than once.
Out of its Way – Done during the Templar encounter, players should do everything they can to prevent the Templar from teleporting.
Strangers in Time – Done during the Gatekeepers encounter, players must defeat the Praetorian and Wyvern at the same time.
Ensemble’s Refrain – Done during the Atheon encounter, each player teleported can only destroy one oracle in each spawn set.

Destiny 2 King’s Fall Challenge This Week October 18 2022

This week’s encounter is Hands Off. This challenge takes place during the Ornx encounter and it sees the raid team not being allowed to kill the same Ogre or Light Eater Knight throughout the encounter. So your team will have to rotate and coordinate kills. Good luck with that one.

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.
