Bungie have added brand new pieces of Exotic Armor for all three classes in Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen.

Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen

There are brand new pieces of Exotic Armor available in Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen, and you can unlock these for each of the three different in-game classes.

Destiny 2’s latest update has brought a plethora of new challenges, Strikes, Exotic Weapons, and much more. Bungie have also added three new Exotic armor pieces for you to collect in the Season of the Chosen.

There are three separate chest pieces for the different classes. Unfortunately, these are extremely rare, so you can’t just find them as loot in the middle of a game or purchase them from Xur. The only way to get them is to complete Lost Sectors.

The three Exotic armor pieces provide some unique benefits to their own respective class, and these can be greatly beneficial when tackling the endgame content.

Here’s are all three new Exotics in Destiny 2: Season of the Chosen.

  • Cuirass of the Falling Star (Titan): Increased Thundercrash damage
  • Mantle of Battle Harmony (Warlock): Increases Super charge rate and damage for matching Subclass and Energy weapon element
  • Omnioculus (Hunter) – Grants an extra smoke bomb and bonuses to buff allies

There are Lost Sectors available for you to complete on Europa, the Moon, and the Cosmodrome. You can hover over them to see what rewards they offer, along with a special modifier known as “if solo” will let you win Exotics through master completions and Legend completions.

Since these Lost Sector rewards rotate daily, you’ll have to wait until one of them previews the Exotic chest armor. That will be your opportunity to jump in and try to win it.

Due to the rarity of these Exotic armor pieces, the Lost Sectors that contain them will be high level, so you shouldn’t expect this to be a cakewalk. You’ll start with a few lives, and you can increase them by eliminating your enemies.

Keep running through the Lost Sector until you can collect your Exotic armor piece. After which, you can switch to another class and try earning another piece. If you aren’t able to get it during your first try, the drops will come back in a few days.

However, if you don’t complete the Lost Sector within 15 minutes, you’ll lose all the extra lives that you have. This is why we recommend that you level up and keep your best gear on you before jumping into them.

Legend Lost Sectors have a Power Level of 1300, while the Master Lost Sector has 1330. These will be insanely difficult to tackle, so hitting the 1310 max Power Level beforehand is your best bet. Luckily, we have a guide for that right here.

Bungie confirms Destiny 2 Witch Queen expansion delayed until 2022

Destiny 2’s next big expansion, Witch Queen, has had to be delayed until 2022, Bungie has officially confirmed.

Published

Bungie has unfortunately confirmed that the Witch Queen expansion, the successor to Beyond Light, will not be released until 2022 at the earliest.

2020’s Beyond Light expansion served to serve as a soft reboot for Destiny with a big change in its narrative and how players could enjoy the gameplay – such as stasis. Beyond Light is the first in a new arc of expansions that was supposed to culminate in the Lightfall.

However, in an Official Bungie blog post, they’ve had to outline their intentions for the Witch Queen expansion and update Destiny 2 players on its development and whereabouts.

The future is looking rosy for Destiny 2 as players have been able to bask in the Season of the Hunt and the Season of the Chosen since the launch of Beyond Light.

Already announced for 2021 is the return of the legendary Vault of Glass Raid in Destiny Season 14, along with the ability to Transmog, and crossplay will feature at some point.

The good news curtails there slightly as Bungie broke the news that Witch Queen would not be able to meet its deadline. Unforeseen circumstances in the world have caused unavoidable delays and forced the developer’s hand.

Bungie has said, “Last summer, we outlined our ambition for the next era in Destiny 2 by announcing the full arc, starting with Beyond Light, followed by the Witch Queen and Lightfall. As we began to scale production on the Witch Queen last year, we made the difficult but important decision to move its release to early 2022; we also realized we needed to add an additional unannounced chapter after Lightfall to fully complete our first saga of Destiny.”

Players will naturally be disappointed but understanding in Bungie’s decision. However, they can sleep knowing that a quality expansion pack is on the way, with confirmation of a fourth one to come after Lightfall.

The blog goes on to say that they value three key principles in Witch Queen’s development, and that is basically: not rushing the content, making sure they perfect new features like crossplay, and most importantly the welfare of their employees.

In the meantime, players can still enjoy all that Season of the Chosen has to offer as they await concrete details on Destiny 2 Season 14.

Vault of Glass Raid set for World’s First race in Destiny 2 Season 14

The upcoming remake of Destiny’s classic Vault of Glass Raid in Season 14 will also be a World’s First race under contest conditions.

Not only is Bungie resurrecting the legendary Vault of Glass Raid for Destiny 2 Season 14, but they have also announced that it will also play host to a World’s First race too.

Season of the Chosen is continuing to smash it out the park for Bungie and has treated its players to a myriad of content, with Weekly Challenges and the new Battlegrounds activity.

It won’t be too long until Season 14 starts, and the next chapter in the Beyond Light saga begins. Along with all-sorts of fresh assets for the series, Destiny 2 will unearth a modernized version of the historic Vault of Glass Raid. The first-ever Raid in the franchise clearly holds sentimental value for many players, and they’re set to get more than they bargained for.

As well as the usual trove of rewards and goodies, Bungie has informed players that they will also have to wage war with every other team to see who gets the winner’s belts for finishing first.

Destiny players have become accustomed to a new yearly Raid to look forward to with the launch of each new expansion. Beyond Light introduced the Deep Stone Crypt Raid into the franchise’s lore, and it won’t be too long before players will have to prepare themselves for the next Raid.

In an official Bungie blog post, they said, “Vault of Glass will also launch with both a Contest mode in the first 24 hours and a World First race. Since this is a reprised raid, we’re going to do World First a bit differently.”

The post goes on to say that, “Players looking to claim the belt will not only have to complete the raid, but also a curated list of challenging Triumphs. And while only one fireteam will walk away with a belt, there will be plenty of opportunities for players to earn the ability to purchase some sweet real-world loot through Bungie Rewards.”

This makes the Raid a more tantalizing and intriguing proposition than what players were already suspecting. There’s already an aura of mystery surrounding the Raid as it’s obviously been seen before in its earliest form.

The addition of new Triumphs throws a spanner into the works and will surely alter many fireteam’s strategies with iron-clad tactics and knowledge of the original Raid.

The post also concluded by saying that Vault of Glass will eventually include a much-harder version of its existing state to challenge players: “Before the end of the year we are also looking to add a Master version of Vault of Glass.”

When does Season 14 of Destiny 2 start? Release date, Vault of Glass, crossplay

Here’s a look at when Season 14 of Bungie’s epic sci-fi shooter is set to start, and some of its features such as Vault of Glass & crossplay.

destiny 2 season 14 start date

We’re going to look at all the evidence to suggest when Season 13 of Destiny 2 is going to end, and when Season 14 will start. The new season is set to reintroduce Vault of Glass and possibly welcome crossplay.

Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen took the game into its 13th Season with all kinds of classic Destiny content such as new weekly challenges, must-have Exotic weapons, and the new Battlegrounds mode. However, there does come a point when you start looking ahead to see what’s in store for the game’s future.

The Beyond Light expansion essentially began a whole new direction for the game in terms of its gameplay and story – following this on with Season of the Hunt and Season of the Chosen. Season 14 will look to continue this new adventure and excite its players.

When does Destiny 2 Season 13 end?

As with other seasons, Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen comes with a Battle Pass for players to level up throughout the season’s duration. It comes with bonus XP boosts, exclusive items and artifacts, and a lot more.

According to the Battle Pass, the final date for earning any tiers on it, and the day we expect Season 13 to end, will be May 11.

When will Destiny 2 Season 14 start?

Unless Bungie has a sudden and drastic change of direction in how they want to approach the upcoming season, then we can expect the season to begin on May 12.

Most games tend to not delay too much after the end of a season, but it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Bungie delays Season 14 by a day or two.

Vault of Glass in Destiny 2 Season 14

Bungie announced a while back that Destiny 2 would bring back the first-ever Destiny raid – Vault of Glass.

Vault of Glass will 100% be appearing in Season 14, albeit remixed and updated to accommodate the updated feel and gameplay of Destiny 2.

Transmog & Crossplay in Destiny 2

There are two other features being discussed with one set for Season 14, and one probably for later in 2021 – they are Transmog and Crossplay. The former allows the manipulation of your armor to retain its original stats but be aesthetically altered to resemble something else. The devs have confirmed that we can expect to see this in Season 14.

Whereas crossplay is an aspect of Destiny that fans have been crying out for. Allowing players of all different platforms to play the game with each other. Again, due to time constraints and the development team’s work schedule being impacted by the ongoing world circumstances, it will probably arrive in 2021, but not for Season 14.

If any new details become apparent about Season 14 of the long-running shooter, we’ll be the first to update you.
