Destiny 2 Reset Time: Weekly Update on PS4, Xbox, PC following Warmind DLC LAUNCHBUNGIE

Destiny 2 Reset Time: Weekly Update on PS4, Xbox, PC following Warmind DLC LAUNCH

Destiny 2 Guardians have just a couple of hours remaining to make the most of the numerous activities and in-game rewards that went live last week following the release of the games latest DLC, Warmind.

That's because the ritual Tuesday weekly reset is coming today, May 15th.

Due to a change to the game, the weekly reset no longer takes place at 9am (BST) as it has usually done in the past. Instead, the reset will now occurs at 6pm BST (or 9am PDT) putting it in line with the rest of the game updates.

For those who don't recall, the Destiny 2 reset is a fairly common occurrence, dating right back to the original game where certain in-game activities reset on a weekly schedule.

This includes everything from new in-game activities, the disappearance of exotic gear vendor Xur and the removal of Trials of the Nine/Iron Banner from the crucible playlist.

Essentially this is a countdown to complete these tasks before they're reset, replaced or removed entirely from the game.

Each Tuesday, the following rituals and activities will have all progression and rewards reset and/or removed:

• Leviathan Raid rewards
• Weekly Nightfall Strike
• Trials of the Nine unavailable after the weekly reset
• Xur disappears again...
• New Flashpoint destination on one of the game's four planets
• Personal Clan XP contribution and Clan Engram rewards
• New Treasure Maps from Cayde-6
• Milestone rewards for Call to Arms, Nightfall, Flashpoint, Clan XP

Keep reading for more details on the key changes taking place THIS week.

Where is Xur?

Last Friday when players were asking '' they quickly discovered the exotic gear merchant on Nessus.

Previously, in Destiny 1, Xur would leave the tower on a Sunday, giving Guardians only the weekend to properly acquire those Strange Coins to trade in for exotic weapons and armour. In Destiny 2, however, Xur leaves when the game undergoes it's Tuesday weekly reset. 

That means players don't have long to trade in their Legendary Shards for Xur's loot, which this week includes:

• Prometheus Lens Exotic Trace Rifle - 29 Legendary Shards
• Ashen Wake Exotic Gauntlet armour – 23 Legendary Shards
• Vesper of Radius Exotic Cheast armour – 23 Legendary Shards
• Knucklehead Radar Exotic Helmet armour – 23 Legendary Shards

In addition, after the Destiny 2 Update on December 12, Xur started selling a few new items. This included the Three of Coins (31 Legendary Shards) and the Fated Engram (97 Legendary Shards).

Following the release of the Warmind DLC, Xur is now also selling 'Five of Swords' - the first one is free.

As for what it does, well, when you use the Five of Swords, you get a chance to raise or lower your score multiplier on Prestige Nightfall missions.

Nightfall Strike

This last week Destiny 2 Guardians have been taking on 'The Arms Dealer' nightfall, but following the weekly reset, players will have yet another brand new Nightfall to experience.

For anyone not in the know, a is essentially higher-difficulty variations of each existing Destiny 2 Strike.

During a Nightfall Strike, enemies are usually tougher and different enemies may appear in clusters as you encounter them throughout the mission, compared to a usual Strike.

In addition, Bungie normally adds certain modifiers to each Nightfall Strike which make the process even more difficult. For example, enemies could have increased aim accuracy, or more enemies could have shields.

Alternatively, it might be modifiers which impact the player, such as players taking more damage while airborne or having the player radar completely disabled.

However, it's impossible to know what Nightfall Strike will replace The Arms Dealer as we no longer have a handy roadmap to refer to.

Stay tuned for details as soon as the weekly reset is completed later today.


As with every Tuesday reset, is rotated out of the Destiny 2 Crucible PvP mode.

For the past weekend, players have been playing the Survival game mode on the Solitude map.

However, if you've yet to make it flawless and access the mysterious place with the giant Emissary and the Unicorns, don't worry.

There's still time to earn some of that amazing Trials of the Nine loot before the mysterious Nine depart for another week.

But as a reminder, Players must complete the Destiny 2 campaign, the Call to Arms Milestone at least once, and have 260 Power for access to Trials of the Nine.


Visit Ikora in the Tower and you can replay specific story missions which are significantly harder than the base game, in exchange you'll earn engams.

The past week players could repeat the following story missions:

  • Six: A crashed colony ship, an interspecies war... Cayde-6 got that adventure he wanted. Go save him from it.
  • Sacrilege: Since the loss of her Light, Ikora has many questions—and she's not leaving Io without answers.
  • The Gateway: Osiris's damaged Ghost appeared on Mercury—along with a Vex army. That can't be a coincidence.
  • Ice and Shadow: A friendly Guardian has requested assistance on Mars. Help her investigate falling Warsats and battle a new threat.


• This past week has seen the flashpoint on Nessus, with players tasked with completing Public Events to finish the Milestone and get a Luminous Engram.
