Destiny 2 Dawning 2022: Recipes, Ingredients & Rewards

by | Dec 13, 2022

The Dawning is here and comes with the usual wide selection of cookies to bake and give to the various Destiny 2 characters across the universe, including Ikora and Lord Shaxx. It’s worth noting that the cookies previously reserved for Sloan in Titan, Asher Mir in IO, and so on, have been replaced by new cookies for Shaw Han and Variks.

This post covers every single Cookie recipe for this year’s Dawning, including the ingredients you will need and the rewards.

What is the Dawning in Destiny 2?

The Dawning is a Destiny 2 limited-time event that occurs in-game and lasts three weeks. The event features unique resources and items you must gather and use to earn exclusive new rewards, such as armor sets and weapons.

  • Destiny 2 Dawning 2022 starts: December 13, 2022
  • Destiny 2 Dawning 2022 end: January 3, 2023, at reset

Dawning 2022 rewards

The Dawning’s rewards for 2022 are just as good, if not better, than last year’s rewards, including a brand-new Pulse rifle and perhaps the best-looking Dawning armor we have seen to date.
