Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals‘ latest weekly reset brings the Moments of Triumph for 2020. Players will be able to complete certain requirements to grab a few rewards such as ghost shells, sparrows, emblems, and, of course, the “MMXX” title or seal. Here’s our guide to help you out.
Note: For more information about the other activities and content for this season, check out our Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals guides and features hub.
Destiny 2: Moments of Triumph 2020 rewards and activities
Traditionally, Destiny 2‘s Moments of Triumph (MOT) event has been a means to relive the game’s older content. In other words, you’ll be doing the same stuff you’ve done in the past — a bit like 2018’s and 2019’s iterations. This year is no different save for a slight focus on endgame raiding (which we’ll get to later).
First, let’s talk about the rewards listed on Destiny 2‘s official website:
- Sunset emblem – Given out as a code that you can enter via Bungie.net.
- Eclipsed Sunset emblem – Given out as a code that you can enter via Bungie.net.
- Accolades on Accolades emblem – Obtained from your character’s Triumphs page after meeting the requirements.
- Resurrecting Flight (exotic sparrow) – Obtained from your character’s Triumphs page after meeting the requirements.
- Awakened Shell (exotic ghost shell) – Obtained from your character’s Triumphs page after meeting the requirements.
- Raid Ring – Given out as a discount code that you can enter via Bungie’s online store; costs $124.99 once discounted.
- Moments of Triumph shirt – Same as above; costs $24.99 once discounted and without personalized text.
- MMXX title – Upon completion of multiple MOT requirements.
Note: You can learn more about purchasable rewards and codes from Destiny 2‘s Moments of Triumph FAQ page.
Farming old raids for uncapped rewards
In Destiny 1 and Destiny 2, raid rewards are only obtainable once per week on each character. In this year’s Moments of Triumph, however, that restriction has been lifted and we’ll now see uncapped raid rewards for the following:
- The Leviathan
- Eater of Worlds
- Spire of Stars
- Scourge of the Past
- Crown of Sorrow
Keep in mind that this means you can continue to farm every boss and encounter as often as you’d like to get some old pieces of weapons or armor, and maybe even some emotes or exotics (ie. Anarchy from Insurrection Prime in the Scourge of the Past raid). There are, however, a few caveats to be mindful of, especially since we’ll soon see weapon/item sunsetting in Destiny 2 at the end of the Season of Arrivals:
- Raid weapons will remain capped at 1,060 PL (the hard cap for the Season of Arrivals).
- Raid armors will be capped around season 14’s level — 1,360 PL. That season would last from June to September 2021.
- The armors you obtain can only be socketed with mods from Year 2 (Forsaken era).
If you haven’t done these raids in the past, now would be a good time to do so. However, if you’re already good when it comes to the loot, then you’ll probably just tackle these for a single completion (due to the MMXX title’s requirements).
The MMXX title/seal
The MMXX title or seal is the main reward for Destiny 2‘s Moments of Triumph 2020. There are 30 triumphs in total, but you only need 28 to obtain the title. Some of these are retroactive, and some need to be completed while the Moments of Triumph event is live.
Note: “N/A” means that there’s no associated reward, just triumph points. We’ve also added links to various Destiny 2 guides from previous seasons if they’re relevant to the requirement.
These triumphs already show up as completed if you’ve already done them during the Season of Arrivals or, in some cases, since the start of the Shadowkeep expansion:

|2. Triumph Master||Obtain a triumph score of 50,000.||Eclipsed Sunset emblem code|
|3. Ordeal or No Deal||Complete 20x Nightfall Ordeal strikes. Higher difficulty strikes grant more progress.||The Master Nightfall Ordeal this week (Festering Core) is currently bugged. It should have 1,080 PL enemies, but they’re only 750 PL at the moment.|

Moments of Triumph 2020 – Old raids
The following should also be done while the event is live, and these are the ones related to the aforementioned “old raids” in Destiny 2:
|20. Leviathan Raid||Defeat Calus.||Raid-specific emblems and ghost shell. You can check out a Leviathan raid guide from our sister site Planet Destiny.|

Moments of Triumph 2020 – Exotics and Solstice of Heroes
These are related to the Season of Arrival‘s weekly mission, exotic items, or the upcoming Solstice of Heroes:
|26. Exotic Arsenal||Obtain the three new exotic weapons in Season of Arrivals (Witherhoard, Ruinous Effigy, and Traveler’s Chosen).||The first two can be obtained now, but we’ll need to wait a while for the Traveler’s Chosen sidearm. Refer to our guides for Witherhoard and Ruinous Effigy, as well as the Calcified Light locations for the latter.|
|27. Hive-God Optometrist||Find and destroy all 50x Savathun’s Eyes.||150x Altered Element. You’ll need to have the Ruinous Effigy exotic first. Refer to our Savathun’s Eye locations guide.|
|28. Inteference: Clear the Air||Defeat Savathun’s mysterious Supplicant in the Interference mission.||150x Altered Element. The weekly Interference mission is something players tend to do each reset. However, the mysterious Supplicant hasn’t appeared yet. We might see it in a couple of weeks.|
|29. The Majesty Of It||Obtain Magnificent Legendary Solstice Armor.||We won’t see the Solstice of Heroes until August 11.|
|30. Above and Beyond||Earn “glow” effects on any Solstice of Heroes Armor.||We won’t see the Solstice of Heroes until August 11.|
Those are all the tasks you have for Destiny 2‘s Moments of Triumph 2020. Remember, you don’t need to do all of them this week and you only need 28 of these to obtain the MMXX title/seal. You probably won’t even be able complete everything since we’ve yet to see the Solstice of Heroes.
The important thing to consider is that the Moments of Triumph will last from today, July 7, until September 22 (which is when Beyond Light, the next Destiny 2 expansion, releases). You’ve got more than two months, Guardian, so try not to worry.
Update 1: Destiny 2: Beyond Light has been delayed until November 10, 2020. As such, you’ll be able to complete your Moments of Triumph until that date so you can pick up the MMXX title/seal.
Update 2: The only exception is the requirement to obtain the Magnificent-tier Solstice Armor. This can only be done while the Solstice of Heroes event is active (from August 11 to September 8). The “glow” effects, however, can still be earned after the Solstice of Heroes event ends.
