In the middle of all the Vault of Glass Raid hype, Bungie will be dropping another week’s worth of challenges for Guardians to tackle. Find out what Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer tasks are in order for Week Three.

It’s a busy time in Destiny 2 right now with players needing to do various tasks across Season of the Splicer. Whether it’s finding the seasonal artifact, hunting for Synthstrand, or hunting new Exotic Weapons, the game is stacked. 

But the main focus at the moment has been the launch of the Vault of Glass Raid, offering players, both old and new, a chance to tackle an updated version of Destiny’s first-ever Raid. The new endurance challenge aside, there are smaller challenges for players to complete in Week Three.

Thanks to DestinyTracker, we have early access to this week’s challenges, and these will be available to players from May 25. So let’s go through what Week Three of Season of the Splicer has in store for us.

Players trying to enjoy Destiny 2 content, such as Season of the Lost, may find that they can’t sign into their account. This could be down to the Error Code: BUFFALO bug, and we’ve broken down the issue and how to fix it.

Sometimes, all players want to do is hop onto Destiny 2 after a long day of work, school, or whatever it may be, and jump online.

But issues are always going to be encountered now and again, and Destiny 2 is not immune to this. Bungie’s first-person shooter has a myriad of different problems that players can bump into, with one, in particular, being troublesome – Error Code: BUFFALO.

What is Error Code: BUFFALO on PlayStation, Xbox & PC?

If you’re struggling to access Destiny 2 online and it’s appearing with “Error Code: BUFFALO,” this is because the game can’t sign you in.

According to Bungie, this could be for one of several different reasons:

  • Console
    • Your chosen platform service is undergoing maintenance
    • Your PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live subscription has expired
    • Players in Korea’s “allotted purchased internet usage time has run out or online account plan has expired”
  • PC
    • Trying to access your Destiny 2 account at the same time on multiple PCs at once

Ways to fix Code Error: BUFFALO problem in Destiny 2

The solutions to the Code Error: BUFFALO problem are basic counteractions to the suggested causes above.

Here’s what you can try to attempt to solve the issue:

  • Console
  • PC
    • Check all your devices that you may have signed into to play Destiny 2, because another user may inadvertently have accessed your account on a different computer

We hope these different solutions help you to solve the Code Error: BUFFALO issue, and that you can resume enjoying Destiny 2 Season of the Lost.

How to get Destiny 2 Ager’s Scepter Catalyst

Here’s how to unlock the Destiny 2 Ager’s Scepter Catalyst. The Catalyst can be used to upgrade the incredibly powerful exotic trace rifle.

Published

destiny 2 agers scepter catalyst

Ager’s Scepter is a powerful Exotic Trace Rifle in Destiny 2, and its weapon catalysts can make it even stronger.

Destiny 2 Season of the Lost started less than a month ago, and there’s already a ton of new content to enjoy. This includes new missions, modes, and gear. And there’s still a lot more to come over the next five months.

One of the new Exotic weapons introduced this season is Destiny 2’s Ager’s Scepter. This new Trace Rifle is one of six in the entire game. And with the ability to slow and freeze enemies, Ager’s Scepter is a menace.

Season Pass holders will have to complete the questline “A Hollow Coronation” to unlock the Exotic. But the fun doesn’t stop there because players can now unlock Catalysts for the Ager’s Scepter to make it even more powerful.

How to get Destiny 2 Ager’s Scepter Catalyst

Catalysts are special modifiers in Destiny 2 that upgrade exotic weapons. They don’t raise the light level of weapons like Upgrade Modules but instead modify certain aspects of the weapon.

Each weapon has its unique Catalysts that have specific means of finding them. For Ager’s Scepter, players can find the Catalyst by opening Wayfinder’s Troves in Astral Alignment. The Ager’s Scepter Catalyst was made available after the rest on September 21, 2021.

Astral Alignment is this season’s matchmade activity. It is a six-player seasonal activity that takes place in four phases. You will need to work with your teammates to complete each wave.

Wayfinder’s Troves appear at the end of Astral Alignment. You will have a few moments before the match concludes to open them. However, you will have to have 150 Parallax Trajectory to open each Trove. It is also not guaranteed that the Wayfinder’s Trove will drop an Ager’s Scepter Catalyst.

Getting a Catalyst takes an awful lot of time and patience, but they are worth it. If you can add even more power to an already overpowered trace rifle, you will want to do whatever it takes.

Sadly, that means players will have to grind Astral Alignment activities this season.

Xur the Merchant in Destiny 2

You can get Exotic items for yourself in Destiny 2 by visiting Xur the merchant. This character moves around, so here is his location and all the items that you can get from him.

Destiny 2 has become a classic since its release in 2017, with a large player base in 2021. The Season of the Lost update has added various weapons like the Lorentz Drive exotic and Darkest Below.

You can also get different Exotic items each week by visiting the merchant, Xur. He hangs out in random locations around the map, and this guide will let you know where to find him along with his inventory.

Xur’s location in Destiny 2 changes each week, and he can be found in the Tower between September 17 and 21. The merchant will be standing near the back stairs of the Hangar.

Once you visit him, you can get yourself some neat new Exotic items to use in the game. Xur will provide you with items that are at the same power level as you.

Xur’s September 17 – 21 items in Destiny 2

This week’s collection of wares consists of impressive weapons, helmets, quests, and cosmetic items. You can equip these and reap their benefits when running into combat in Destiny 2.

Here’s a breakdown of every item that you can get from Xur the merchant this week in the game.

Merciless 

Merciless in Destiny 2

This fusion rifle comes with the Exotic perk, Conserve Momentum, which lets it charge the fusion bursts faster for every non-lethal hit. This lets you kill bigger enemies much quicker.

Merciless was considered one of the best Exotic weapons in year 1 of the game. While there are better weapons in Destiny 2 to choose from, you can still have a ton of fun with this gun.

Shards of Galanor

Shards of Galanor in Destiny 2

This item comes with the Sharp Edges perk, which refunds Super energy based on the number of blades you hit with Blade Barrage. This will allow you to dish out more pain during Strikes and Crucibles.

One-Eyed Mask

This Titan helmet was considered to be one of the best Exotic items during Destiny 2: Forsaken, and it comes with the Vengeance Exotic perk. This will mark enemies that deal damage to you, letting you track them through walls.

Geomag Stabilizers

Geomag Stabilizers in Destiny 2

These Exotic boots were from Forsaken, and their Exotic perk is Close Enough. This recharges your Chaos Reach Super while sprinting if you have at least 90% energy. You can increase the duration by damaging enemies with Chaos Reach.

Exotic Cipher Quest

Xur also has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher this week. This lets you purchase old Exotics from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the tower. You should do this Quest so that you can acquire Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.

The merchant requires you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches this week. You’ll earn the Exotic Cipher once you’ve completed this Quest.
