Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph 2020 challenges and rewards explained

What's required of you in this year's challenges.

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

Regular players will be familiar with how it works. By completing these challenges - some of which involve completing the toughest or most 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 and, for the first time, a Raid Ring.

As with last year, each Triumph is weighted the same, giving you freedom to play how you like. There are also more to come in this year's Solstice of Heroes event, due to arrive in August.

That said, completing Raids are given a priority this time, since many will be vaulted alongside their destinations later this year.

To go with it, the weekly reward limit for Leviathan, Eater of Worlds, Spire of Stars, Crown of Sorrow, and Scourge of the Past have been lifted - giving you a chance to farm any Raid-exclusive drops you might have missed. (Chest rewards, meanwhile, are capped as usual.)

Moments of Triumph 2020 takes place between July 7th and September 22nd, the day the next expansion Beyond Light releases.

Destiny Moments of Triumph 2020 challenges list

There are 25 challenges to complete this year - three which have yet to be revealed for this year's Solstice of Heroes event (due in August), and another five if you include the Triumphs you earn for claiming each reward, which will help nudge you up to the next reward tier.

You'll find the list of Moments of Triumph challenges in the 'Triumphs' tab in your inventory, then select the Seal at the bottom of the screen.

Note the bounty, weekly challenge and five raid Triumphs have to be completed fresh for this challenge - they do not count previous completions. Other completions - from the Garden of Salvation Raid to pinnacle weapons - do count already, however, so you have done them, simply collect the Triumph.

Remember, you only have until November 10th - Beyond Light's new release date - to complete these challenges.

Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph 2020 rewards

Each of the above challenges are weighted equally, giving you freedom to choose which ones you like to get the desired reward.

With many Raids disappearing with the next expansion, they have been given a priority in this year's event. That said, there are plenty of other challenges to get on with for solo players - enough to get all but the final in-game seal reward.

The Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph 2020 rewards are as follows:

  • Any Triumph completed - Tracking emblem showing Triumphs completed so far
  • 5 Triumphs - Sparrow (Resurrecting Flight)
  • 10 Triumphs - Ghost (Awakened Shell)
  • 15 Triumphs - 2020 Moments of Triumph T-shirt purchase access
  • All five raids completed - Raid Ring purchase access
  • 28 Triumphs - MMXX seal (which appears under your player name when exploring the world)

This year's seal is a little better than 2019 - requiring 28 out of 30, and not every challenge, to earn it.

Regardless - these are no small feats, and you only have until November 10th to get what you need. Best of luck!


Season of Arrivals has introduced new Exotics, including Ruinous Effigy, as well as new Powerful and Pinnacle Gear sources. Elsewhere in Year 3 we saw the introduction of Armor 2.0 and K1 Logistics, K1 Revelation, K1 Crew Quarters and K1 Communion locations. There are also several new weapon quests, including the Deathbringer quest, Divinity quest, Leviathan's Breath quest and Xenophage quest. We also have a list of our best Destiny 2 weapons recommendations, which includes Jotunn and Le Monarque.
