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.

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?

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.

Players who love to battle it out in competitive PvP action to earn Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris rewards can now see what the week of January 14 has to offer.

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:

  • Reputation Rank 4: Upgrade Module (2)
  • Reputation Rank 7: Enhancement Prism (3)
  • Reputation Rank 10: Eye of Sol (Kinetic Sniper Rifle) – The Messenger (Kinetic Pulse Rifle)
  • Reputation Rank 13: Upgrade Module (2)
  • Reputation Rank 16: Igneous Hammer (Solar Hand Cannon) – Sola’s Scar (Solar Sword)
  • 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.

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.

Published

Master Chief and Destiny 2 Guardian

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.

Halo weapons spotted in Destiny 2

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.
