Destiny 2 Weekly Reset

Weekly Resets have been a consistent part of Destiny since the game first launched in 2014. The developers use these to bring new content and to reset activities so that players can start grinding through them.

A new Weekly Reset dropped on April 6, so there are various new changes and adjustments to explore in the game. We’ll go over everything you need to know about these, including all the rewards you can earn.

How to get Destiny 2’s Xenophage assault rifle

The Xenophage is an extremely impressive Exotic Weapon that you can collect by completing a quest in Destiny 2.

Published

on

Xenophage in Destiny 2

Wondering how to get the powerful Xenophage rifle in Destiny 2? Here’s how.

Destiny 2 has a ton of cool weapons to choose from before jumping into battle. The Xenophage Exotic machine gun is a great choice because of its accuracy, along with its explosive rounds that will annihilate your enemies.

If you want to get your hands on this powerful weapon, then you’ll need to complete an Exotic quest that requires you to solve puzzles and complete certain tasks. Here’s how you can get the Xenophage Exotic in Season of the Chosen.

Destiny 2

How to start the Xenophage Exotic quest 

If you want to start this Destiny 2 Exotic quest, then you’ll need to visit the Red Keep room where you saw Eris when completing her Memory quests. From there, you’ll have to make your way towards a puzzle that you need to solve.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Land at Sorrow’s Harbor, and move north into the Red Keep
  • Head left from the green crystal, and continue until you approach a small path on the right wall leading upward
  • When you enter the main room, light the statues in the correct order (front right, back left, back right, front left) 
  • Loot the chest in the middle of the area to claim The Journey

Light all six lanterns at The Anchor of Light

You’ll then have to go east of the main southern landing zone at the Anchor of Light portion of the Moon. Once you’re there, collect the orb of flame from the Fallen-infested building.

This orb must be used to light lanterns at six different spots within one minute. Luckily, your timer will reset every time you light one in the correct order, which is the following:

  1. Right next to where you collected the Orb of Flame.
  2. On top of the building at the edge of the crevasse to the East
  3. Inside the small yellow structure interior near the Fallen-infested building
  4. At the top of the Fallen-infested building
  5. On a small rooftop by the buried section to the north
  6. On top of the large round structure over the green pit in the middle of the map

After all six lanterns have been lit in the correct order, you must insert the orb in the small Hive spire near the site where you grabbed the orb.

Where to find all four path fragments 

Now, you’ll have to complete all four Lost Sectors on the Moon, and successfully get through Hive rune puzzles at the end of each one. You can find these puzzles in the exit paths for the Lost Sectors.

These consist of nine grids of runes, and shooting one will change all of the symbols in the rune’s row and column. You’ll need to match every rune in the grid with the symbol above the grid. We’ve listed the correct order below:

  • K1 Communion: 7, 9, 2, 2
  • K1 Revelation: 6, 4, 5, 5, 4, 8, 5, 2
  • K1 Logistics: 1, 7, 6, 5
  • K1 Crew Quarters: 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 9, 8, 8

Once you’ve line up all the runes, chests will spawn that you can loot to collect all four path fragments.

Runes in Destiny 2

The Pit of Heresy

This next step will require you to complete various activities within the Pit of Heresy dungeon, including activating a hidden rune, lighting fires, and winning a boss fight. You’ll already have reached 970 PL beforehand, so you can get these done quickly.

Here’s how you can complete the Pit of Heresy:

  1. Clear all the minibosses at the start of the dungeon
  2. Make your way to the chamber filled with doorways and platform to the door without a symbol at the entrance
  3. Activate the hidden rune inside
  4. Visit the area packed with Hive Ogres before the Hive Totem encounter
  5. Head left from the fork, then drop down to the rocky ledge below.
  6. Find the small plate marked with runes and activate it to collect the Orb of Flame.
  7. Return to the fork, and then take the right path this time.
  8. Find the sealed door with two braziers on either side, and use the Orb of Flame to light both

This will then open up a door that leads to a boss fight. This enemy is PL 970, so be ready for a dangerous battle. You won’t be able to hurt the boss initially, and you’ll need to do some tasks before that opportunity comes.

The Pit of Heresy in Destiny 2

You’ll receive a random buff, and you must check it to see where you need to place the Orb of Light. Once you’ve put it in the correct spot in the arena, you’ll gain a Vengeance buff that allows you to hurt the enemy for 25 seconds.

Here’s where to place the orbs:

  • Abyssal Dread: Upper Arena – Far left
  • Thunderous Dread: Lower Arena – Front left
  • Fiery Dread: Lower Arena – Far right
  • Neutral Dread: Upper Arena – Front right

Just keep checking your buff, then collect the Orb of Flame and place it in the matching locations. You’ll then have the opportunity to shoot the boss with the matching elemental damage type. Just keep repeating it until you defeat the boss.

Once the enemy has been defeated, you can finally collect the Xenophage Machine Gun for yourself! Now you can go cause some serious pain to your opponents the next time you jump into a match of Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Guardian Games 2021 leaks: Start date, loot, how to win

Leaks are pointing towards the existence of the second-ever Guardian games that will take place in Bungie’s Destiny 2.

destiny 2 guardian games 2021

Destiny 2 players can start getting excited as a leak has all but confirmed the return of Bungie’s Guardian Games in 2021.

After the success of the inaugural 2020 edition, it seems Bungie’s ultra-competitive Guardian Games are going to be making a welcome return to Destiny 2.

After pitting Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks against each other during Season of the Worthy, the three factions will once again go toe-to-toe with one another in Season of the Chosen.

We have all the details on the 2021 Destiny 2 Guardian Games leaks below.

Guardian Games 2021 start date

The leak was discovered by a Twitter user by the name of joshhunt who found that the Official site had gone live too early, with extra information also being available on the Destiny 2 help page.

It confirms that the 2021 Guardian Games are due to begin on April 20 and will finish on May 9, 2021.

Will Destiny 2’s Guardian Games 2021 be any different?

Instead of just grinding it out to see who prevails at the end of the Guardian Games, there will also be weekly incentives to fill the void left by the end of the Season of the Chosen weekly challenges.

Players will be competing for rewards each week to see who will be the “Head of the Class.” Obviously, the three teams will be fighting hard to claim the overall victory that the Titans claimed in the first year of the Guardian Games, but extra prizes will keep the competition interesting.

How to win the 2021 Guardian Games in Destiny 2

New to Destiny 2 and not sure how the games actually work? We’ve got you covered. Each player will be representing the starting class they picked: Hunter, Titan, or Warlock.

You will obtain a special Guardian Games item specific to your team that you will need to use when competing in PVP modes.

This will earn medals for your chosen class, and also go a long way to helping you pick up some awesome loot.

Guardian Games 2021 Exotics & loot

Exotic weapons are rare and powerful weapons that can usually inflict a lot of damage and chaos upon whoever gets in their way. Season of the Chosen has offered players incredible Exotics such as Dead Man’s Tale and Ticuu’s Divination, and the Guardian Games are providing players the chance to show off even more.

The Heir Apparent Exotic Machine Gun is going to be a focal point of loot rewards in 2021’s Guardian Games. There are also honorable mentions for an Exotic sparrow, a unique-looking Ghost, and full armor sets.

Additionally, all three classes are set to receive a new Legendary class item. The Guardian Games look set to be the farewell Event for Season of the Chosen with Season 14 set to go live a few days after.
