The Destiny 2 weekly reset is upon us once more, bringing another week of refreshed content for Guardians to dive into, from a new Nightfall weapon rotation to Ritual activities and plenty of other updates.

While The Final Shape has seen a delay, Season of the Wish begins this week, meaning that players can expect new story content, activities, and, of course, loot. So, here's everything happening in the game this week, from a rundown of the reset time to details on the featured raid, dungeon, and everything else.

What time is the Destiny 2 weekly reset for November 28?

Destiny 2 has its weekly reset every Tuesday at 5 PM GMT/9 AM PDT/12 AM EDT. After this point, you will be able to tackle any of the week's new content until the next week rolls around.

Expect some server maintenance and a big queue when you do get in, though - check out our Server Status page for more.

This includes new challenges, any new story content, and a refresh of all weekly content, such as Nightfalls, Raids, and Crucible modes.

What is the Destiny 2 weekly reset?

The weekly reset in Destiny 2 is when all activities are refreshed, rewards are restocked, and new weekly content is released. Each week, Guardians everywhere will jump on at the weekly reset time to check out what's new, and what's different, and to earn some all-important, powerful gear.

The weekly reset is also a way for events like Iron Banner to launch and conclude their limited time in the game, and for vendors to restock their supplies.

Destiny 2 Nightfall this week

Psiops Battleground: Cosmodrome is the Nightfall this week, a difficult newer addition to the rotation.

Completing the regular Nightfall will net you some decent rewards, but the true prize, the Adept weapon, comes only to those who can accomplish a Grandmaster Nightfall completion with a Platinum medal. As the season has just begun, Grandmaster Nightfalls will not be available for the first few weeks.

Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon rotation

This week, the Nightfall weapon is the Warden's Law Hand Cannon, a classic weapon that has returned in recent months.

If you're not familiar, there is a rotation of Nightfall-specific weapons that can only be gotten this way, and only one weapon is active from the rotation each week.

As this new season has only just begun, we cannot say for sure yet which weapons are available in this season's rotation. We will have the full list of weapons here in the coming weeks as they are revealed.

This last week's Exotic Rotator mission is Operation: Seraph's Shield, with the Revision Zero exotic Pulse Rifle up for grabs. To get started, go to the Legends tab on the Director screen and you'll find the weekly exotic rotator mission.

Featured raid & dungeon this week

Fittingly, The Last Wish is the featured raid for this first week of Season of the Wish, so be sure to jump in there to complete any challenges you have yet to accomplish or grab any gear you want to craft. Reckon you can get the One Thousand Voices exotic?

The featured dungeon is Duality, making this a great week to complete the attached Seal or just grab some powerful loot.

With the competitive content refresh, we have more bounties to complete, gear to chase, and good times to be had in Destiny 2, with this week bringing us Rift, Elimination, and Checkmate Control, which appears as its own playlist for the first time this season.

That's all you need to know about the Destiny 2 weekly reset for the current rotation on November 28, 2023. For more on the game, head to our Destiny 2 homepage for more tips like our list of the best exotic weapons or how to get the Monte Carlo catalyst.
