Season of the Risen (S16) Seasonal Challenges – Seasonal Challenges are a great way to gather XP and Bright Dust in Destiny 2. Week 3 of the seasonal challenges are here, and you can start your grind to collect some much-needed XP.
Witch Queen Update has brought a lot of new content to the game; The Vow of Disciple Raid, New Exotic Pulse, a Recluse like SMG and a lot more. You can view all of the Witch Queen content we’ve published over here. If you still haven’t completed the campaign, I’d recommend you complete that first in Brave difficulty; the lore is excellent.
