Destiny 2: Raid and Dungeon Rotation this Week

by | Apr 16, 2024 | Leveling

Bungie finally did something to bring new life to the older raids and dungeon: A weekly rotation. Every week, a different raid and dungeon are part of the weekly rotation, which means they become fully farmable, on top of also offering a Pinnacle reward each.

This guide covers this week’s Raid and Dungeon rotation, including their rewards and loot tables.

Fully farmable Raid and Dungeon weapons

But wait, it gets even better. The weekly raid and dungeon are fully farmable:

Oh, wait, you said you liked farming? We got you there too with the new rotator system. All lockouts on encounter rewards for Legendary gear are being removed, which means all Legendary drops in both raids and dungeons will be 100-percent farmable if you so choose.

Pinnacle rewards

Also, the featured raid and dungeon will also reward players with Pinnacle gear:

For the weekly rotation, completing the final encounter in any of the chosen raids or dungeons will award a Pinnacle drop from a Weekly Challenge.

Your turn

Have the raid and dungeon rotators changed the way you play Destiny 2? Are you finally running those older raids more now? Let us know in the comments!

    D2 will be unplayable garbage until they stop queueing keyboard andouse players with controller users in pvp and move to balanced (meaning fixed) loadouts and builds for pvp. They also need to put back all the PVE content they stole from paying customers and remove at least 2 to 4 hundred layers of RNG.

        Paid for everything and never realized it was only half a game. Nobody reads EULA’s lol. Couldn’t tell you what anything is about. Not watching 8 hours of youtube videos explaining all the campaigns and seasonal content that never should have been removed in the first place either smh.

        You just make it into two games and put the first half offline and make it downloadable to ppl. Pretty simple really. There is no excuse and you’ve drank the kool-aid. If i’d have known i’d have never given them a dime. There honestly should be a class action lawsuit. A precedence needs to be set so other scummy companies cant get away with this in the future. EULA is irrelevant. You paid for a product and you no longer have said product. You are not paying for access to a service. They are not an internet or streaming provider.

      Pc players get matched against pc players. Console players get matched against console players. In the roaster you can see if they are on your console or the other which is displayed by a controller icon. I play a lot of pvp and I rarely suspect people of actually playing on mouse and keyboard on console, it is usually on playstation and really unusual. Maybe you should practice more ? If you are on pc and complain about players playing with mouse and keyboard then oufff get a console lol

        No they do not. It’s fully crossplay. They can’t tell what you’re using and they don’t care. Everyone uses Chronus, Xim etc. and many M&K users migrate to console to get the leg up. It’s a total crapshoot.

        Played a GM with guy running a full auto bottomless mag Gjallarhorn the other day. He said it bugged out on him in the team chat lol. Nope, he was jumping and moving like he was obviously on controller and tracking targets through cover…and that was in PVE lol. No sweat.

        I promise you 15% of the ppl you are up against at least have wall hacks. Don’t be naive. Just look at all the streamers who get caught hacking…now imagine how many never do. That applies to everyone else too. If you think Aztecross and all those guys are rolling vanilla well bud i have a few things i’d like to sell you…

        Everyone knows it’s victimless and you aren’t gonna get caught unless you are really stupid and overdo it. If you aren’t hacking in that game you are handicapping yourself. Fact.

        I am good rooster. Very good.

        The whole point is skill is irrelevant on an uneven playing field. They do that so unskilled ppl can pat themselves on the back when they two tap someone from behind.

        You need the same movement, health/sheilds, loadouts and abilities (or at least a carefully balanced sandbox) to have skill based PVP (also everyone needs to be on the same input devices as well)

        That’s why old shooters like Quake 2 and Unreal Tournament 3 are the kings. Physics based projectiles, long TTK’s and fast movement. Everything was right there in the map accessible to everyone. Even playing field.

        Went to a Quake 2 tournament in Edmonton Alberta back in the day. A guy walked in with a PS one mouse and keyboard (look it up, they were a thing). He ordered it from Japan, they couldn’t disqualify him cuz it was a Playstation branded input device. He mopped the floor with everyone of course (it’s an objectively faster and more precise input) and walked out with the 5000 dollar grand prize.

        This is not a new thing. If you think you have any real skill playing random crapshoot PVP like D2 think again. I’d bet dollars to donuts on the irony of you being one of those “skilled” players who responds like this then turns around and cries about the SBMM (lol what a misnomer)

            If you search it up, there has never been a quake 2 tourney in Edmonton Alberta, and even if there was, there is no proof that kid even went to one like how we gonna believe you

          • FYoMamma

            What Quark fucking said, my guy.

    • HJ0HN50N

      Thats call of duty. You’re thinking of CoD. Go play that.

      When it comes to PVP I completely agree, people will tell you that you only get matched with pc if you have one in your fireteam, but that’s a complete lie. Using mic I’ve had several match made teams have pc players on my team, and after messaging my opponents found out that some of them are pc players. If the game doesn’t find a match in 30sec-1min it widens the search and adds PC to the pool. Screw that id rather wait longer then face up against aim bots

      the whole sunsetting thing was a lose lose situation. without it destiny would be around 150 GB. I think really the only thing people miss that was sunset, was forsaken and maybe red war.
