Destiny 2 Season Of Plunder: Seasonal Challenges Guide Week 9
With the current Season of Plunder storyline coming to a close in Destiny 2, only a few new objectives have gone live this week. They’re still worth doing so you can earn Repute and some Bright Dust, and if you’ve had a short break, you can easily knock out several of them in a single night of action.
This week you can easily earn some Repute in Ketchcrash, as well as some Challenger XP and Bright Dust from general play. Equip any weapon you want, jump into Gambit and Expedition, use Arc effects and you’ll earn some easy prizes this week.
If you’re up for a challenge, you can tackle a Legendary Lost Sector and maybe even earn yourself a new exotic like Fallen Sunstar or Point-Contact Cannon Braces depending on the gear rotations this week.
The steady flow of experience will help fill up your Season Pass sooner, allowing you to grab even more loot in the process to equip your Guardian with in Season of Plunder. You can also tackle seasonal challenges at your own pace, as they only expire when the season ends in December. If you decide to take a break from Destiny 2 for a week or two, you can go back and complete multiple challenges at once.
For more on Destiny 2, check out what’s new in this year’s Festival of the Lost event, how weapons are tweaked in a mid-season update, and saying goodbye to destination gear next season.

How do seasonal challenges work?
Seasonal Challenges can be accessed from the Quests tab in your main menu, which is where you’ll find tasks that revolve around eliminating certain enemies with a specific item, taking part in one of the game’s new activities, or completing a raid. Each challenge can be completed once per account, and each week will typically add around 10 new challenges that will be active during the season.
Completing Season of Plunder’s challenges will fulfill the requirements for the Season Challenge, which in turn will give you a large Bright Dust reward that can be spent in the Eververse store on select cosmetics, emotes and items.
