Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals (the final season for the Shadowkeep expansion) will bring players closer to a confrontation with the Darkness and Savathun. You’ll make “first contact” with Pyramid ships that loom over Io and then enter the Prophecy dungeon in the Realm of the IX. Along the way, Guardians will pick up Umbral Engrams to “focus” on the rewards that they want while earning seasonal rewards. Here’s our guides and features hub to help you out.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep – Season of Arrivals guides and features hub
Official review – How does Destiny 2‘s Season of Arrivals stack up compared to previous Shadowkeep seasons and other DLC? Find out in our official review.
Contact public event – The public event will have you activate a Pyramid Scale prior to facing off against waves of Cabal, Vex, and Taken. It’s a wilder version of Gambit.
Interference mission and weekly quest – This weekly quest for the Season of Arrivals provides players with pinnacle gear.
The Seed of Silver Wings artifact – Here are the mods and perks you can obtain from this season’s artifact.
Leveling guide – It’s time to redo the grind. Now, you’ve gotta hit the 1,050 PL soft cap and then the 1,060 PL hard cap.
Umbral Engrams and the Prismatic Recaster – This guide explains what Umbral Engrams are, and how to “focus” on particular rewards via the Prismatic Recaster. This feature also lets you select bounties, mod rewards, and upgrades (a bit like Season of the Worthy‘s Seraph Bunkers).
Umbral Engrams leveling cheese – Got a lot of Umbral Engrams with you? Then I guess it’s time to cheese your way to higher power levels.
The Witherhoard exotic cheese – It won’t be Destiny 2 without more cheesing, and this glitch lets you insta-kill bosses.
The Prophecy dungeon – The new dungeon takes players to the weird and wondrous Realm of the IX — Xur tentacles not included.
Interference mission: Week 2 – It’s the second week and the requirements for “Means to an End” and Savathun’s Court are slightly different.
Interference mission: Week 3 – Another “Means to an End” quest and a new Savathun’s Court location.
Interference mission: Week 4 – Oh, look, we had a full rotation.
Interference mission: Week 5 – The Contact public event heads to Titan, and, finally, you’ll be able to get the Ruinous Effigy exotic. Completing week 5’s Interference mission/Means to an End quest is the first step to obtaining the exotic.
Ruinous Effigy exotic quest – This exotic trace rifle turns dead enemies into orbs. You can obtain it once you complete the “Missive” quest chain.
All 25 Calcified Light locations – You’ll need to find these collectibles in various destinations since it’s part of the “Missive” quest chain.
All 50 Savathun’s Eye locations – These creepy, floating eyes are related to the Ruinous Effigy’s catalyst, and destroying them all will also net you one of the triumphs for the Forerunner seal/title.
Using the Ruinous Effigy effectively in PvE and PvP – The new exotic trace rifle might seem gimmicky, but it can be very powerful in the right hands.
The Iron Banner’s reprised weapons – The Iron Banner this season has the Old Reliables quest and a couple of reprised weapons (old stuff with extra rolls and a higher power cap).
The Exodus: Preparation quest chain and Ikelos weapons – Savathun’s Pyramid Ships are unstoppable, so you’ll need to help out your friends in various planets while obtaining reissued/reprised Ikelos weaponry.
Festering Core Nightfall bug – Let’s face it, everyone loves a bug that works in favor of players.
Moments of Triumph – It’s that time of the year when Guardians start grinding for more triumph points to get a new title (and maybe a shirt).
Solstice of Heroes – The Solstice of Heroes event in Destiny 2 will let you obtain glowing legendary armor pieces.
Traveler’s Chosen exotic and Exodus: Evacuation – The Exodus: Evacuation questline takes you to various planets. At the end of your journey, you’ll be given the Traveler’s Chosen exotic sidearm.
