Week 9 of Season of the Risen has begun, and only a few challenges remain as Destiny 2’s most recent story begins to wind down. This week is geared toward Guardians who want to show off their skills, as a run in Trials of Osiris, an exotic weapon quest on Master difficulty, and the void energy release in Gambit are all on the checklist.
Completing these challenges is well worth it, as you’ll gain a massive amount of experience in the process. That, in turn, helps you fill up your season pass sooner, earning you even more loot in the process. It is a win-win situation.
Even better, you can follow these Season Challenges at your own pace, as they will only expire once the season concludes. If you decide to take a break from Destiny 2 for a week or two, you can go back and complete multiple challenges at the same time. For more on the game, you can check out a sneak peek of mech-themed armor coming later this year and details on how raids and dungeons will be coming into service on a rotating basis next season.

How do Season Challenges work?
Season Challenges can be accessed from the Missions tab on your main menu, which is where you’ll find tasks that revolve around taking out certain enemies with a specific item, participating in one of the new in-game activities, or completing a Raid. Each challenge can be completed once per account, and each week there will usually be around 10 new challenges added that will be active throughout the season.
Completing the Season of the Risen challenges will fulfill the requirements for the Master of All Season Challenge, which will in turn earn you a large Bright Dust reward that can be spent in the Eververse store on cosmetics, emotes, and select items.
