Destiny 2 Season Of The Seraph: Seasonal Challenges Guide Week 8

Read Time:7 Minute

Only a few more weeks remain before sweeping changes are introduced to Destiny 2 in Lightfall, but for now, there’s still some work to be done in Season of the Seraph.

There are only a handful of challenges to tackle this week and no new Exo Frame modules to earn. What you can do is grab your favorite pulse rifle–Revision Zero is a great option this week–transmat into Operation: Seraph’s Shield on Legend difficulty, and earn some Challenger XP in the process.

Now Playing: Destiny 2: The Witch Queen – Season of the Seraph Trailer

If you’re up to the task, you can also try to win several rounds in Trials of Osiris when it goes live again on January 27. There won’t be too many opportunities to complete this specific challenge, as next week will see the return of Iron Banner. Remember, an Iron Banner week means that there’ll be no Trials of Osiris that weekend.

You can also tackle seasonal challenges at your own pace, as they’ll only expire once the season concludes in February. If you decide to take a break from Destiny 2, you can always return and complete multiple challenges at the same time after a few weeks of rest.
