Trials Of Osiris Rewards This Week In Destiny 2 (Sept. 17-21)
The Trials of Osiris are back and more rewarding than ever--jump into Destiny 2 and grab some of the game's best weapons from one of its toughest challenges.
Update: Trials of Osiris has come to an end for the weekend of Sept. 17-21. Here's where you're playing and what rewards you can earn in Trials of Osiris for the weekend of Sept. 24-28.
Last week, Destiny 2 players discovered that the Trials of Osiris is excellent in the Season of the Lost, thanks to a whole bunch of great changes. You'll definitely want to take advantage of the mode to get some of the game's best weapons and armor, while testing yourself in one of its absolutely most difficult activities.
As always, both the Trials of Osiris rewards and the map are randomized when the mode goes live at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on Fridays.
- Map: Distant Shore
- 20 rounds won -- Pinnacle Trials Engram
- 7 matches won -- Pinnacle Trials Engram
- Reputation Rank 10 -- Eye of Sol (Kinetic sniper rifle); after reputation reset, The Messenger (Kinetic pulse rifle)
- Reputation Rank 16 -- Igneous Hammer (Solar hand cannon); after reputation reset, Sola's Scar (Solar sword)
- Flawless run -- Reed's Regret (Adept), Stasis linear fusion rifle
Trials of Osiris is a weekend PvP mode that runs from the daily reset on Friday until the weekly reset on Tuesday, giving you four days to take part. Your goal in the Trials is for you and the other two players in your fireteam to achieve a "Flawless" run, in which you win seven matches without losing any.
Go Flawless, and you'll earn a trip to the Lighthouse and receive some special rewards, including the new Adept weapons. These have additional stat bonuses, making them among the most coveted items you can get your hands on.
Thanks to a bunch of changes to Trials this season, though, the mode is a little easier to get into than it has been. The Trials of Osiris now features matchmaking, so you can jump into matches even if you don't have a full squad of three players to take it on. Your Trials Passage, the card you purchase from Saint-14 that grants you access to the mode and tracks your wins, now does not track your losses--so you can keep playing and earning rewards even if you lose out on a Flawless run. Bungie has also adjusted Trials so that you earn rewards based on the number of rounds, rather than matches, you've won during your session, and added a reputation system that's similar to the Crucible and Gambit, making it easier to earn some of the Trials of Osiris's unique loot.
Finally, you'll earn Trials Engrams for participating in the mode, which you can cash in with Saint-14 during the weekend you receive them. Thanks to the new update, you can tune those engrams to yield specific pieces of loot, or take your chances with random drops that will expand what's available in your loot pool. So even if you're just jumping into Trials alone, there are plenty of ways you can earn great new gear.
