Destiny 2 Bonus this week: Double Rewards and Ranks

by | Jul 16, 2024 | Leveling

As a lite-MMO, Destiny 2 is all about the grind. If you want the loot, upgrade materials, or XP, you better prepare to play a lot, and this is especially true for Playlist activities.

Luckily, Destiny 2 features a weekly bonus system. Almost every week, a particular activity will grant bonus ranks, XP, or rewards. This hub will help you keep track of the weekly bonus active right now (This week in Destiny 2 covers everything else).

Using Bonus rewards weeks to your advantage

If you’re a die-hard Destiny 2 player and can spend hours each week grinding, you’ll benefit from these bonuses intuitively.

But if you’re strapped for time, and can only spend so much time playing the game we love, you can definitely use these weekly bonuses to your advantage.

This is what I do to benefit from these bonuses as much as possible:

  • Don’t touch the playlist activity you don’t enjoy until much later in the season (in my case, that would be Gambit…)
  • Waiting this long will allow you to also tackle as many Weekly Challenges as possible
  • Pro tip: Juicer bonuses tend to occur in the latter part of the week, such as Triple ranks
  • Once a big weekly bonus becomes active, grind as much as you can for the week.

To stay on top of Destiny 2 rotations and weekly changes, we have both Today in Destiny 2 (and next week, too) covered.
