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.

With The Final Shape just a week away, Season of the Wish is winding down, meaning that players can expect new updates and content each week. 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 for May 28.

In case you missed it, Into the Light is here, bringing with it new features like Onslaught and the BRAVE Arsenal.

Oh, and while you're here, why not check out our interview with the team about the current season, as well as what went into making the Warlord's Ruin dungeon?

What time is the Destiny 2 weekly reset for May 21?

Destiny 2 has its weekly reset every Tuesday at 6 PM BST/10 AM PDT/1 PM EDT. After this point, you will be able to tackle any of the week's new content until the next week rolls around.

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

If there have been any major updates or it's the start of a new season, you can expect some server maintenance and a big queue when you do get in, though - check out our Server Status page for more.

What is the 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.

Season of the Wish Finale

It's been a long time coming, but last week we saw "Veiled Threats Emerge" in the final quest of Season of the Wish.

We won't spoil it here, but it's a fun throwback to Destiny's past with a tricky boss fight to boot.

Destiny 2 Nightfall this week

This week's Nightfall strike is Hypernet Current from Lightfall. 

There are bonus Vanguard ranks this week, alongside extra Nightfall rewards, so be sure to take advantage of those.

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.

Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon rotation

The Nightfall exclusive reward for this week is the Uzume RR4 sniper rifle.

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.

The list of the weapons we have seen in the rotation so far is:

Weapon Details
The Slammer Stasis Sword
Warden's Law Kinetic Hand Cannon
Pre Astyanax IV Solar Bow
Braytech Osprey
Void Rocket Launcher
Loaded Question Arc Fusion Rifle
Undercurrent Arc Grenade Launcher
Uzume RR4 Solar Sniper Rifle
Wild Style Solar Grenade Launcher

Destiny 2 Exotic Rotator

The rotating exotic mission this week is Vox Obscura, letting you earn Dead Messenger. There are some decent weapons from Season of the Risen, too (I like Sweet Sorrow).

Featured raid & dungeon this week

King's Fall is the featured raid for the week, so be sure to jump in there to complete any challenges you have yet to accomplish. It's another great chance to get the exclusive exotic Touch of Malice.

The featured dungeon is Grasp of Avarice, making this a great week to complete the attached Seal and updated weapons.

Wondering if they're worth tackling? Check out our ranked Raid and Dungeon list. Don't forget there's a whole host of new Legend and Master Lost Sectors, too.

Destiny 2 Crucible & Gambit rotation

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 Momentum into the rotating playlists.

The New Territory playlist is sticking around, too, meaning these three maps are yours to jump into as you wish:

  • Cirrus Plaza
  • Dissonance
  • Eventide Labs

These maps are available across the regular Crucible modes, so be sure to jump in soon to check them out. If you really want to try them out, the New Territory playlist will consist of 3v3 matches of varying game modes exclusively on these new maps.

Trials of Osiris will be back this weekend, as we've had the final round of Iron Banner for the season.
