YDestiny 2’s pinnacle PVP activity, Trials of Osiris, has finally returned to the Crucible. Here’s everything we know about Trials of Osiris this weekend (August 5), including the map and rewards. Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted is in full swing now, and Trials of Osiris is back after last week’s hiatus as we countdown to Season 18 and Destiny 2’s Lightfall reveal. Although the playlist has traditionally struggled with issues like cheaters, account recovery services, and technical issues within the broader Destiny 2 experience, Bungie has rolled out some fresh tweaks in recent seasons to improve things. Here’s a super quick rundown of what you can expect from Trials of Osiris in the seasons ahead: Trials will only be available to players that own the latest annual expansion (The Witch Queen) You can keep playing once you’ve accrued three losses and still earn gear (although Trials will only offer its best rewards to Flawless runs) PC players will now notice BattlEye anti-cheat is in effect Perhaps the biggest change is that Trials of Osiris will now offer matchmaking Season of the Haunted has brought with it new changes to Trials of Osiris. Capture Zone and Freelance weekends will be returning, and Adept rewards will see changes, too. While you’re here, why not check out Xur’s location, too.

Don’t forget, though, that you can get better gear with higher stat rolls through going Flawless. Rank 10 and Rank 16 Trials Reputation will also guarantee weapon drops. As of Season of the Haunted, players can earn the Falcon’s Chase Sparrow starting on June 10th.

Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Passages explained With the playlist revamp in Season of the Lost, Trials of Osiris also underwent some changes to its Passages (or Cards). These quest items grant you access to the Trials playlist each weekend, and there are some important changes to note under the new system: Passages no longer track losses Each Passage is either Flawless or not, which allows you to keep playing and earning rewards regardless of how many losses you suffer Players can still reset their Passage after a loss, but are no longer forced to do so after hitting three losses on their card Passages now track up to 20 rounds won All Passages have had their prices significantly reduced Passages are now account-wide, meaning you can play and earn rewards on any of your characters using the same Passage Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Saint 14 Vendor Screen 2 BUNGIE Make sure you grab the right Passage before hopping into Trials for th e weekend. These changes, and what they mean for you when gearing up for the playlist, can be pretty confusing. Fortunately, we have a breakdow n of each Passage, what it does, and which one might be right for you: Passage of Mercy: This Passage forgives one loss per run If your goal is to make it all the way to the Lighthouse, this is the Passage for you. You’ll get one free loss without needing to reset your card and start scratch Passage of Ferocity: This Passage grants you a bonus win after reaching three wins on your card Usually the next choice behind Mercy for Flawless runs, this will allow you to skip an entire match on your way to the Lighthouse — but, you won’t have the loss forgiveness that comes with Mercy Passage of Wealth: This Passage grants increased Trials Rank points from reaching 3, 5, and 7 match wins If you’re more focused on farming Tria ls rewards, and aren’t concerned about going Flawless, this is the card for you. With the new Trials reputation system, the Passage of Wealth will up your rank with Saint-14 more quickly than any other card Passage of Confidence: This Passage grants a bonus reward from the Flawless chest, but you can onl y acquire this card after already going Flawless that week If you’re confident about your skills and have a solid fireteam to play with, the Passage of Confidence ca n help you rack up more rewards at the Lighthouse, but is arguably the most difficult Passage to play Picking the right Passage for you (and your teammates, if you plan on entering Trials with a pre-made fireteam) will go a long way towards making sure you get the most out of your time in the playlist each weekend. Destiny 2 Adept Igneous Ham mer Hand Cannon Trials of Osiris Flawless Reward BUNGIE The Adept Igneous Hammer is one of the many Flawless rewards that rotate each week. Trials of Osiris weekly Destin y 2 reset Trials of Osiris will next go live on Friday (August 5) at daily reset (10 A.M. PDT / 1 P.M. EDT / 5 P.M. GMT / 7 P.M.

Before diving into the competition, you’ll need to mak e a stop at the Tower’s Hangar and talk to Saint-14, the Destiny 2 vendor who oversees Trials. He’ll be your main source of bounties and rewards throu ghout the week, and the person who provides each of your Trials Passages. There you have it, that’s everything you need to know about the Trials of Osiris map and rewards for this week. Make sure to jump into the playlist with a couple of your buddies before next week’s reset puts the game mode on its typical hiatus.

Could we be reunited with Rasputin in Season 17?
Season of the Risen is focused on continuing our offensive against the Lucent Hive, even after Savathun is defeated at the end of the Witch Queen campaign.
It seems unlikely we’ll continue to fight alongside Caiatl’s Cabal forces in the next season as well, but one theory seems to suggest Rasputin could make a return.
The AI hasn’t been seen since the pre-Forsaken Warmind expansion, and his loyalties are tough to decipher — he’s just as likely to help Guardians as he is to nuke them from orbit.
As noted by Forbes’ Paul Tassi, it appears Rasputin could be given an Exo body and a new name: Archangel. Is it time for a reunion?
Season 17 will continue with the Season Pass model, meaning you can buy in for around £10 per season.
If you have Witch Queen’s Deluxe Edition, you’re already covered for Season 17, 18, and 19.
Could it be time for Destiny 2 to move to a subscription model?
