Destiny 2 weekly reset is the most important day in the week for those wanting to get the most out of Bungie's loot-filled shooter.
Many activities in the game - particularly those offering high level loot - are capped at dropping their rewards once per week, so learning the day these activities reset and start over is key to helping you reach higher levels and try out new challenges.
If you're interested in reaching higher levels in general, our Destiny 2 Power level page explains the ins and outs of how levelling works.
What time is the Destiny 2 weekly reset and daily reset?
As of late 2017, the Destiny 2 weekly reset now takes place every Tuesday at the following times:
- UK: 6pm (BST)
- Europe: 7pm (CEST)
- East Coast US: 12pm (EDT)
- West Coast US: 9am (PDT)
Previously it was 9am GMT / 2am PDT. The reason behind it was to put it in sync with Trials of the Nine and major updates and release timings.
As well as a weekly reset, there is a daily reset of certain activities, which also occur at the above times each day.
What changes in each Destiny 2 weekly reset and daily reset?
Now we know what time the reset changes, here is what changes when the reset occurs.
Weekly reset changes in Destiny 2
- Weekly Nightfall Strike
- New Flashpoint destination on one of the game's four planets
- Personal Clan XP contribution and Clan Engram rewards
- New Treasure Maps from Cayde-6
- Leviathan Raid progress and Keys reset
- Milestone progress and rewards reset for Call to Arms, Nightfall, Flashpoint, Clan XP
- Xur and Trials of the Nine disappear until Friday
- New Eververse inventory to be purchased with Bright Dust
As discussed in our Destiny 2 Power level explainer, you can only redeem Milestone rewards once per week, so make sure you complete them before the reset. If you complete them but don't redeem, then they will auto decrypt the next time you log in after the reset - nothing lost!
Keeping busy with Warmind while you wait for Destiny 2: Forsaken and its new Gambit mode? We explain the addition of Renown in Faction Rally this week, new Exotics and Masterwork Catalysts, such as the Sleeper Simulant and how to unlock Worldline Zero with Lost Memory Fragments. There's also the mysterious Override Frequency nodes and Nascent Dawn and Polaris Lance quest, giving you other rewards. Elsewhere, you can learn how to reach Power level cap 380 / 385, what to spend Glimmer and Legendary Shards on, how Mods, Infusion, and Engrams work, plus an explainer for the Destiny 2 Leviathan Raid.
Daily reset changes in Destiny 2
- New Planet / Patrol Challenges
- New Crucible Challenges
- New Strike Challenges
Essentially, each day there is a new set of Challenges in set activities. In the first Destiny, vendors would rotate their wares on a daily or weekly basis - but that no longer appears to be the case in the sequel.
