Destiny 2 Season Of The Haunted: Seasonal Challenges Guide - Week 10

Here's how challenges work and what's asked of you during Destiny 2's Season of the Haunted.

Comments

If you logged into Destiny 2 looking for a number of new seasonal objectives to pursue, you might want to temper your expectations slightly. For week 10 of Season of the Haunted, there are a mere three of these optional quests to tackle, and they won't take you long to work through.

Grab a machine gun, head to the Derelict Leviathan, and make a stop on Europa, and you'll be all good to go as this part of Destiny 2 wraps up ahead of Season 19's launch on August 23.

A quick note here if you're struggling to complete the older objectives where you have to use non-Solar subclasses and weapons, is that you need to avoid using the scythe during the boss fights when solar isn't on the list of elements. That's a solar weapon, so it'll nullify any progress.

As usual, you'll gain a substantial amount of experience for completing seasonal challenges. That in turn helps you fill up your season pass sooner, grabbing even more loot in the process to outfit your Guardian with in Season of the Haunted. You can also tackle seasonal challenges at your own pace, as they'll only expire once a season concludes. If you decide to take a break from Destiny 2 for a week or two, you can return and complete multiple challenges at the same time.

For more on Destiny 2, you can read up on how Iron Banner has been overhauled, the new tweaks to the Duality dungeon, and our Season of the Haunted guide.

How Do Seasonal Challenges Work?

Seasonal Challenges can be accessed from the Quests tab in your main menu, which is where you'll find tasks that revolve around eliminating certain enemies with a specific element, taking part in one of the game's new activities, or completing a Raid. Each challenge can be completed once per account, and each week will usually add around 10 new challenges which will be active for the duration of the season.

Completing Season of the Risen's challenges will fulfill the requirements for the Master of All seasonal challenge, which in turn will net you a large Bright Dust reward that can be spent in the Eververse store on select cosmetics, emotes, and items.
