Destiny 2’s latest expansion is full of surprises. It’s brought along exciting new things that are still discovered, and now it has brought back the a key location from the first season. The Old Tower from The Red War is making its return, and here is what we know so far.
Beyond Light has brought a plethora of new content to Destiny 2. It’s set on Europa, the icy cold moon of Jupiter, and this location is filled to the brim with exotic weapons, armor, special enemies and new challenges. In addition to these, we are also seeing the return of some familiar things.
The Red War was Destiny 2’s first main story campaign and it pitted Guardians against the looming threat of the Cabal Red Legion. This enemy bombarded The Last City on the Battle of Six Front’s anniversary, and destroyed the original Tower. Now a few years later, the tower is finally making its return.
Speculation about this started when some leaked artwork showed the Traveler and the original Tower, both looking much like they used to before their fates in The Red War. This was followed by Destiny 2 player W0rdsm1th discovering signs of reconstruction at the site of the destroyed tower.
There is a yellow scaffolding and other construction equipment surrounding the ruins of this old structure. Now many other players have reported spotting the same thing when looking from the second level of The Last City.
We wondered if this would just be an Easter egg for Destiny Veterans to enjoy. That it would just serve as a reminder of the Red War and a sign that the world is moving forward, but we were hoping that Bungie was showing it being repaired to tease a new expansion. Now we know that this is related to the upcoming end of season event that has an Iron Banner quest titled “A Tower Rebuilt.”
This quest will take place on December 8 and it’s for a Hand Cannon and Scout Rifle, just like last season. The Iron Banner Quest will have you take down foes with your Super, capture zones, and land final blows with the Hand Cannon.
The Steady Hand and Guiding Sight are the reprised weapon that will be used in the event. You can find more information about the quest on the DestinyTracker Twitter account.
This is sure to excite fans who played Destiny 2’s campaign upon the game’s launch. This is the first time in years that The Last City’s Old Tower will be a vital part of the season so visiting it again will feel nostalgic. You should expect brand new challenges and announcements over the coming weeks until the start of the end of season event.
This is all we know about the reconstruction of the Old Tower so far and we’ll keep checking for more updates. We don’t know what this entails exactly for the future of this location but we’re excited to find out!

Destiny 2‘s Trial of Osiris has become a staple of Bungie’s sci-fi shooter, thanks to its heated action, and the rewards for January 14 are now available to see.
One of the most popular game modes that the first-person shooter offers is, no doubt, Trials of Osiris, which is the game’s competitive multiplayer playlist that allows Guardians to test their skills against other players.
One of the exciting factors of this game mode, besides proving your skills, is the new set of rewards that players can earn with their success every week. Here is the newest set of Trials of Osiris rewards in Destiny 2.
What are the Trials of Osiris rewards for January 14 in Destiny 2?
The Trials of Osiris is an end-game Crucible event that resets its rewards and map every Friday at 9 AM PST / 1 PM EST / 6 PM GMT. The more reputation you can earn in Bungie’s Trials of Osiris, the better quality of rewards you will receive in Destiny 2.
The map that players fight on changes each week, but for this week, the Iron Banner Crucible event is on, meaning the Trials of Osiris will be back with more rewards and a new map on January 21.
Here is the complete list of Trials of Osiris rewards for the previous week:

- Flawless Reward: Eye of Sol (Legendary Sniper Rifle) (Adept)
To earn the Flawless Reward, players will need to win seven Trials of Osiris matches without losing a single game.
It’s a tough feat, no doubt, but it’s doable with enough skill, patience, and understanding of the game’s mechanics.
- Passage of Ferocity – Your third match win grants a bonus win. (10000 Glimmer & 15 Legendary Shards)
- Passage of Mercy – Forgives one loss per run. (10000 Glimmer & 15 Legendary Shards)

Destiny 2 Anniversary Event hints at Halo crossover
Destiny 2 players have spotted some Halo weapons in the upcoming 30th Anniversary event, and they believe it could be teasing a crossover.
The Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack will arrive in Destiny 2 soon, and the teasers appear to show Guardian’s rocking some very familiar Halo weapons. This has sparked rumors that a Halo crossover will be arriving in Destiny 2 soon.
Bungie kickstarted the legendary Halo franchise back in 2001 but since parting ways with Microsoft, has now moved on to developing and supporting Destiny. Now, Halo is in the hands of 343 Industries.
Bungie will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a special Destiny 2 event that brings over content and cosmetics from its previous games. Although it’s Bungie’s most famous franchise, there was no confirmation that any Halo content would arrive.
However, on the 30th Anniversary Pack’s Steam page, eagle-eyed players believe they have spotted Halo weapons that tease a crossover.
The Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack launches on December 7 and brings a new Dungeon, as well as the Gjallarhorn Exotic Rocket Launcher, and weapons and armor from its previous games – Myth and Marathon.
Although Halo put Bungie on the map, the end of its Microsoft partnership has meant that Destiny and Halo have never had a crossover. However, it appears that could change.
Players have spotted weapons that look extremely similar to Halo’s classic Battle Rifle and Focus Rifle (or Covenant Carbine) in an image from Destiny 2’s ‘Dares of Eternity’ activity.
Some also believed that they spotted a Needler in the same image, but it’s actually a new armor set where the shoulder piece has some very familiar purple needles poking out of it.
However, there’s no guarantee that this will be an official crossover. It’s likely that Bungie has crafted new weapons that are inspired by Halo’s but in such a way that it doesn’t directly bring them over.
While an official crossover is possible, we’ll need to wait until the 30th Anniversary event releases to know just how much Halo will arrive in Destiny 2.
You can also check out how to get Destiny 2’s Last Word Hand Cannon and Halo Infinite devs teasing a stronger anti-cheat is on the way.
