Destiny 2 has a lot to do. So much so, it’s sometimes hard to decide what to chase and prioritize next.

Some activities, such as unlocking catalysts or doing Exotic quests can be tackled at your own pace, but most challenges are dependent on the game’s Weekly Reset. Many rewards and activities are limited to one per week, and that limitation is lifted every Tuesday with reset.

In this post, we’ll cover all the Weekly challenges and activities in Destiny 2 this week, including a detailed list of activities and the main highlights.

Let’s get started with the highlights for this week.


Highlights this week: July 28, 2020

This week was calm, with nothing new in particular taking place in-game. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as Season of Arrivals is one of the strongest and most engaging seasons we’ve had in a long time.

Top Highlight: You can once again farm the Hollowed Lair legacy Nightfall for a chance to get a Mindbender’s Ambition, still one of the best shotguns in the game.

These are the other highlights this week:
