Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen has introduced a new weapon for players to get their hands on: The Hammer of Proving. Here’s how to get, charge, and upgrade it.
Season of the Chosen, the latest chapter in Destiny 2, has introduced more quests, a new season pass, and the new Hammer of Proving.
This new item will allow you to smash open chests at the end of Battlegrounds matches, gain Umbral Engrams, and recieve new upgrades.
Here’s how to unlock, charge and upgrade the Hammer of Proving.
How to get the Hammer of Proving
To get the Hammer of Proving, first, you’ll need to complete the introductory mission. Upon launching Destiny 2 after the Season of the Chosen update, you’ll be queued into the new game mode: Battlegrounds.
Simply play through the introductory mission, and you’ll then be able to access the new social area: The H.E.L.M. While in the H.E.L.M, head to the War Table speak to Zavala, Crow, and Osiris to progress.

To get the Hammer, you’ll need to complete the Challenger’s Proving quest and head back to the War Table. From here, you’ll be gifted the Hammer of Proving.
How to charge Hammer of Proving
Next, you’ll need to charge the Hammer of Proving with Cabal Gold. While the game confusingly states you need to have the Hammer equipped, it will always be equipped once it’s unlocked.
Cabal Gold is unlocked by doing almost everything in Season of the Chosen: playlist activities, Dungeons, or public events. We’d recommend doing Strikes as these will give you 14 Cabal Gold a piece.
With your Cabal Gold, you can purchase a Medallion to insert into the Hammer. To do this:
- Go into the Quest Screen
- Highlight the Hammer of Proving
- Select ‘details’
- Click on the empty slot
- Purchase the Medallion with Cabal Gold
With the Medallion inserted, smash Trial Chests at the end of Battlegrounds missions to get one charge in the Hammer.
Take the charged Hammer to the H.E.L.M to gain Umbral Engrams to upgrade your character.
How to upgrade the Hammer of Proving
To upgrade the Hammer of Proving, you’ll need to upgrade the War Table, which can be upgraded by earning War Table Reputation for completing weekly season challenges.
Upgrading your Hammer will allow you to carry more charges. To keep upgrading the Hammer of Proving, you’ll need to continuously earn War Table Reputation. This will take time, so can expect to be doing this for the majority of the season.

Competitive Destiny game could be in development with Bungie job listing
A Bungie job posting strongly points toward a new competitive game set within the Destiny universe being in development.
According to a job listing from July 2022, Bungie are developing an “exciting new title” in the Destiny universe with competitive elements.
Destiny 2 is currently in its 17th season and is showing no sign of slowing down, with rumors claiming a Destiny mobile game is in development and a job listing pointing towards a competitive title being in development.
Destiny devs Bungie are certainly no stranger to developing games that competitive players love, with the original Halo trilogy having a booming esports scene. Now, this job listing appears to confirm that Bungie are developing a brand-new competitive game set in the Destiny universe.
Bungie’s job posting reveals they are looking for a Senior Concept Artist to work on an “exciting new title” where the dev will need to work on “guns, characters, armors, vehicles, environments, and other seasonal art needs.”

The job posting is rather vague when describing the game, but there are a couple of bullet points that give us a strong indication.
The listing appears to confirm that it’s associated with Destiny, where the Concept Artist will need to “Continually push aesthetics of the Destiny universe.”
There’s no guarantee that it’s a competitive-focused game but it should have at least a competitive element where “Experience with and love of competitive games” is listed as a “nice-to-have skill.”
Aside from these snippets of information, what the game’s about is anyone’s guess. It’s possible that it’ll be a standalone version of the Crucible mode, but with it being a “new title” it’s unlikely.
The job listing also doesn’t clarify if this is the leaked mobile title or something completely different, but don’t expect it anytime soon if they’re still hiring senior developers.

According to The Game Post, this information came from a “source with knowledge of NetEase’s development plans” and Bungie are said to be collaborating with the Chinese conglomerate for this project.
Bungie has allegedly been working on a new Destiny game for “over two years now” so they might be bringing a mobile port similar to Apex Legends mobile or the upcoming Warzone Mobile. However, it’s possible that they could be developing an entirely new IP altogether.
Is there a Destiny Mobile release date?
At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed for this mobile game. However, it’s been 5 years since Destiny 2 first arrived, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Bungie are gearing up to release a new entry. We’ll let you know once we hear anything about the release date.
