Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Rewards this Week: Rotation and Map

by | Aug 5, 2022 | Weapons

Trials of Osiris, Destiny 2’s infamous endgame PvP activity, was extensively reworked and improved a few seasons ago. And that was a big deal because Trials was in desperate need of an overhaul.

But Trials has always gotten one thing right: Its rewards. Trials’ weapons, in particular, have always been considered some of the best in the game. And now that Trials is both fun to play and rewarding, it’s the perfect time to farm some of its top-tier loot.

In this guide, we’ll cover all of its rewards, including weapons and armor, this week’s rotation, and more.

Trials weapon this week: August 5, 2022

The Trial of Osiris weapon this week is the Adept The Summoner Auto Rifle. Trials Of Osiris kicks off on Friday at 10 am PDT.

Trials Map this week

The Trials of Osiris map featured this week is the Endless Vale.

For an increased chance to go Flawless, or simply improve your Win ratio, map positioning is key. To improve your map knowledge, Relikt‘s maps are a must:

Other Trials loot

On top of offering an Adept weapon each week, Trials also offers the following rank rewards:

Rank Reward
4 Upgrade Module (x2)
7 Enhancement Prism (x3)
10 Rotating weapon
13 Upgrade Module (x2)
16 Rotating weapon

But perhaps more importantly, you will also receive Trials of Osiris engrams every time you rank up. And if you decide not to focus them, and simply decrypt them, you will receive a Trials item you don’t already have in your collection.

Destiny 2 Trials Weapons and Armor

The two tables below cover everything Trials of Osiris has to offer in terms of loot. Let’s start with the weapons.

The Witch Queen Expansion: Trials and its loot used to be available for free, but in an effort to combat cheating, ownership of The Witch Queen is now required.

Trials Weapons

This table covers every Trials of Osiris weapon in the game. Keep in mind that moving forwards, all Trials of Osiris weapons will come with the following Origin Traits:

-TraitSourceActivation | EffectsSpecsSource TypeReleased
Alacrity trait Destiny 2 artAlacrityTrials of OsirisGain increased reload, stability, aim assist, and range when you are the last living member of your fireteam or running solo.+20 reload, +20 stability, +10 aim assist, +10 rangeActivityThe Witch Queen
One Quiet Moment trait Destiny 2 artOne Quiet MomentPlaylist: CrucibleGrants increased reload speed when out of combat.40 Reload while Out-of-CombatActivityThe Witch Queen

It starts with the S Tier weapons and moves down from there. It also covers both PVE and PVP, with the “Excels in” column clearly identifying where each weapon shines:

⛔ These weapons are on a seasonal rotation. Each season, some weapons will become unobtainable to leave room for previously unavailable weapons to return.

► Shayura's Wrath is arguably the most well-rounded SMG in the game with its off-the-charts stats and excellent perks. Not only can it excel in PvP due to its high zoom, but it can also pair well with any PvE Void 3.0 build using Golden Tricorn or Adrenaline Junkie.

► Because of its similar stats and perks, Eye of Sol is said to be a kinetic version of Beloved. And while it is a little harder to obtain, its low zoom, high aim assist, and S-Tier perks in both columns make it easily worth the effort.

PvP God Roll: Rapid Hit (also good: Outlaw) + Desperado

► This returning weapon from Destiny 1 is hands down the best Pulse rifle right now. Belonging to the High-Impact archetype, The Messenger benefits from one of the fastest TTKs in the game. On top of that, it has best-in-class base stats and excellent perks. And while all of its perks are good, it can also roll with the exclusive Desperado perk. With Desperado, which greatly increases its rate of fire after a precision kill, its TTK is massively reduced, allowing it to duel absolutely anyone and even go for insane killing sprees in 6v6 modes.

► Sola's Scar has a caster archetype putting it slightly above Adaptive swords but lower than Vortex ones. However, Sola's Scar's advantage is that it can attack from range due to its archetype. This range, combined with Chain Reaction, has some interesting potential for add clear.

► With best-in-class base stats, superior to my previous favorite legendary, Threaded Needle, Reed's Regret is the best legendary Linear Fusion in the game. It also offers an excellent PVE perk combination that no other Linear Fusion can offer: Triple Tap with Firing Line.

► While not as strong as it previously was in Season of the Chosen, Igneous Hammer boasts the best stats out of all 120 RPM Hand Cannons and comes with some sweet perks. Even though it isn't currently meta, this weapon can excel in any environment you put it in.

► Astral Horizon used to be one of the greats... Nowadays, it's not only unobtainable but also a mediocre option compared to more recent alternatives. To be competitive, Astral Horizon requires the Adept form of the gun and also Adept Range, but despite the high range it can theoretically offer, its handling can be abysmal.

PvE God Roll: Moving Target (also good: Killing Wind) + Adrenaline Junkie

► The first sidearm with an Adept variant, many have been waiting for something like it. Sadly, it only partially lived up to expectations. Its base stats are easily best in class and can benefit even more from Adept mods, giving it a great feel at base. However, its perks are fairly niche for PvP, making a lot of players pass on this weapon for now.

These are the different Tier levels used for this ranking:

  • S Tier – Best: Highest ranking weapon types.
  • A Tier – Strong: Very strong weapon types, but not on the same level as S Tier Choices.
  • B Tier – Average: Decent choices that can be lethal in the hands of a skilled player.
  • C Tier – Weak: The middle of the pack, somewhat mediocre.
  • D Tier – Worst: Lagging behind the competition, these don’t have much to offer.

The list starts with the S Tier and moves down from there. It also covers both PVE and PVP, with the “Excels in” column clearly identifying where each weapon shines.

Destiny 2 Trials rewards

Weapons cycled out from the loot pool

With now 14 Trials of Osiris weapons in total, Bungie cycled out 2 weapons at the beginning of Season 16 (Igneous Hammer, Sola’s Scar) and 2 more weapons at the beginning of Season 17 (Shayura’s Wrath and The Messenger). This means these weapons can no longer be obtained until Bungie decides to reintroduce them to the loot pool.

For the record, Bungie has already warned that the following weapons will be cycled out at the beginning of Season 18 (next season):

  • Eye of Sol Sniper Rifle
  • The Summoner Auto Rifle

Adept Trials weapons

Trials of Osiris Adept weapons, reserved for Flawless runs, offer better stats (via an improved Masterwork) and can accept Adept mods, which are superior to normal mods. Needless to say, Trials Adept weapons are superior and a major flex for hardcore players.

The Last Word

Now that Trials of Osiris is finally enjoyable for the average player, now is the time to start farming your favorite weapons. Which one is your favorite Trials weapon? I have to mention my Messenger with Headseeker that I love dearly… I know Desperado is technically better but Headseeker is too good when dueling…
