Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen

There is a brand new Artifact, the Bell of Conquests, that is available in Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen update. Here’s how you can get your hands on it.

Season of the Chosen has added some exciting content to Destiny 2 in the form of new challenges, Exotic weapons, and armor pieces, along with various other additions. It has also brought a brand new Seasonal Artifact, the Bell of Conquests.

This Artifact comes with 25 mods for you to have fun with, and it’s much easier to obtain than the one that was available during the previous season. We’ll go over all the different mods you can use, as well as how to unlock the artifact.

How to unlock Season of the Chosen Seasonal Artifact

You can get your hands on the Bell of Conquests right at the start of the Season of the Chosen. Once the opening cinematic ends, the game will throw you right into the Battleground: Behemoth, where you’ll have to complete a few objectives.

You’ll spend most of your time eliminating Cabal, throwing bomb orbs at generators, and killing majors. Eventually, you’ll find yourself in the first boss fight which is fairly easy to complete. Once you’ve won, you’ll be able to collect the Bell of Conquests.

You can then take your reward to the War Table in the H.E.L.M. to receive it as the Seasonal Artifact. If you want to level it up, then you can try your luck at completing all the seasonal bounties and challenges.

Bell of Conquests Seasonal Artifact Mods

In addition to increasing your power level, you can use the XP that you earn to unlock additional mods for the Seasonal Artifact. These will all grant you different perks, and we’ve prepared an overview of them below.

Column 1

  • Overload Bow: Firing fully drawn arrows will stun targets, delay ability energy regeneration and lower their damage output.
  • Overload Submachine Gun: Uninterrupted fire from your equipped SMG will stun targets, delay ability energy regeneration and lower their damage output.
  • Anti-Barrier Scout Rifle: Your Scout Rifles will fire shield-piercing rounds and stun Barrier Champions while dealing bonus damage to them.
  • Unstoppable Pulse Rifle: Aiming down Pulse Rifle sights loads a high-impact burst that stuns unshielded combatants.
  • Unstoppable Hand Cannon: Aiming down Hand Cannon sights loads a powerful explosive payload that stuns unshielded combatants.

As you may have noticed, many of these are Overload, Unstoppable, and Anti-Barrier mod types. You can try equipping the bow mod to the new Seasonal Exotic weapon, Ticuu’s Divination.

Column 2

  • Scout and Sniper Rifle Targeting: Improves targeting for Scout Rifles and Sniper Rifles
  • Scout Rifle Loader: Increases reload speed of Scout Rifles.
  • Bow Dexterity: Increases ready and stow speed for Bows.
  • Sniper Rifle Dexterity: Increases ready and stow speed for Sniper Rifles.
  • Sidearm Dexterity: Increases ready and stow speed for sidearms

Most of these focus on the ready and stow speed of different weapons, so equipping them will improve their handling. You should focus on getting “Scout and Sniper Rifle Targeting” since this will provide the same buff to two weapons.

Column 3:

  • Unflinching Scout Rifle Aim: Reduces flinching from incoming fire while aiming Scout Rifles.
  • Sniper Rifle Scavenger: Sniper Rifles get bonus reserves when you pick up Special ammo.
  • Bow Reloader: Increases reload speed of Bows.
  • Unflinching Sniper Rifle Aim: Reduces flinching from incoming fire while aiming Sniper Rifles.
  • Submachine Gun Reloader: Increases reload speed of Submachine Guns.

Since the Season of the Chosen has an increased focus on Sniper Rifles, it makes sense that the third column has multiple sniper rifle mods that focus on improving its handling.

There is also an SMG mod that you can use to increase the reloading speed of your equipped weapon. This is particularly useful during Destiny 2’s latest update since SMGs have received a new buff.

Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen

Column 4:

  • Anti-Barrier Sniper: Sniper rifles fire shield-piercing rounds; anti-Barrier.
  • Disrupting Blade: Landing consecutive sword hits disrupts combatants; anti-Overload.
  • Resonance Siphon: Gain Stasis ability energy when you or a fireteam member stuns a champion.
  • Surge Detonators: Arc grenades disrupt combatants; anti-Overload.
  • Inferno Whip: Solar melee abilities stun unshielded combatants; anti-Unstoppable.

The Anti-Barrier Sniper is a welcome addition that fits the focus on sniper rifles in Season of the Chosen. You should absolutely equip this mod if you want to dish out some pain to Barrier champs in Destiny 2.

Column 5

  • Focusing Lens: Light abilities do more damage against Stasis-affected enemies.
  • Passive Guard: Receive less damage from enemies that are close to you while you’re wielding a sword.
  • Glacial Inheritance: Defeating enemies with your Stasis super recharges your super energy.
  • Sundering Glare: Rapid precision hits versus distant targets weaken them for a short duration.
  • Volatile Conduction: Grants bonus Arc super damage when cast while critically wounded. Lasts until the super ends.
Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen

Both “Focusing Lens” and “Glacial Inheritance” can useful when playing as part of a fireteam, especially to players that use Stasis. You can use “Sundering Glare” during raids to debuff enemies, and Passive Guard is ideal if you prefer using swords.

Ultimately, this last column has the most variety in terms of the benefits these mods provide. The Bell of Conquests has an impressive selection available, which makes this absolutely worth obtaining.

Since the Seasonal Artifact is fairly easy to unlock early on, you shouldn’t face too much trouble with it but we hope that this guide has been helpful. Bungie is revealing more surprises in Destiny 2’s latest update, and we’ll keep you informed on each one.

When does Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end and Season 15 start?

With Season of the Splicer well underway, we need to start looking ahead to Season 15 and what bungie may have planned for Destiny players.

Published

destiny 2 season 15

Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion continued with the launch of Season of the Splicer, but Season 15 will be here before we know it. Here’s everything we know about the next season of Destiny 2 so far.

Season of the Splicer has proven to be a bit of bumper season for Destiny 2 with some ground-breaking features added to the game. The long-awaited and promised Transmog has finally debuted in Destiny 2 with players now encouraged to hoard all the Synthstrand, Synthcord, and Synthweave to do so.

Not only that, but we also saw the return of the first-ever Destiny Raid – Vault of Glass. The season as a whole carried on from where Season of the Chosen left off by adding more Weekly Challenges and providing regular updates, and we expect all of this to continue in Season 15.

When will Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end?

destiny 2 splicer

Each season of Destiny is a lengthy one, typically lasting three months in total. Bungie has given no sign that Season of the Splicer is going to be any different.

With this in mind, we can expect the latest season of Destiny 2 to finish up on August 24. With many more Weekly Challenges and extra content to be drip-fed into the game, Guardians still have a lot more cool stuff to look forward to.

When will Destiny 2 Season 15 start?

As usual, unless Bungie has something gigantic planned or has severe issues with their services, the downtime will be minimal at best.

So Guardians can expect to gear up and take to the terrain on either the same day that the Season finishes – August 24 – or at a push August 25.

Crossplay finally coming to Destiny 2 Season 15

Originally announced in the February 25, 2021 Bungie blog update, crossplay will finally be landing in Destiny 2 which will be music to the ears of many.

When discussing some future content updates such as the Witch Queen being pushed back to 2022, the team talked about how Crossplay would be implemented.

Crossplay is coming to the masses in Season 15. We’ll be doing some internal rollouts and alpha tests in Season 14 to prepare for a widespread launch this fall. With Crossplay, you’ll be able to play with all your friends no matter what platform you call home.

And don’t worry, we won’t be matching console and PC players together in the Crucible unless PC players specifically invite their console friends to play with them in the PC Crucible pools.” 

Other major features in Destiny 2 Season 15

In the same blog post, the team also dropped some additional info regarding changes they hope to make happen in Season 15.

Here are the proposed Destiny 2 Season 15 changes:

  • “We will be addressing “three-peeking” in Trials and Competitive. In these modes, emotes will be disabled and players will be unable to pull out any third person weapon that doesn’t have ammo
  • We are also looking at universal adjustments to Stasis by increasing damage reduction when frozen to provide more survivability for the victim
  • We will also focus on Light subclasses and release a set of targeted buffs to our most underutilized specializations
  • We will also be looking to adjust overall ability usage rates to make sure guns and gunplay are always key to success in the Crucible
  • We will introduce our first round of Legendary Stasis Energy and Power weapons”

As we start getting closer to the Season’s official unveiling, we’ll be able to update this page with crucial and essential information.
