Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph 2021 rewards and challenges explained

What's required to complete the end-of-year event.

Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph is an annual series of challenges wrapping up the previous year's activities of Bungie's space shooter.

By completing these challenges - some of which involve completing the latest and often more time intensive activities in the game - you can earn exclusive rewards, both in-game and out, including the chance to purchase an exclusive T-shirt.

As with previous years, each Triumph is weighted the same, giving you freedom to play how you like. With Year 4 extended until February 2022, this year no longer requires any Solstice of Heroes Triumphs - and instead feature the recent Bungie 30th Anniversary DLC activities.

Moments of Triumph will conclude on February 22nd, 2022, the day the next expansion The Witch Queen releases.
