Destiny 2 Path of the Splicer quest steps: How to complete the weekly seasonal quest

What's involved in the seasonal quest, up to Path of the Splicer VI.

Destiny 2's Path of the Splicer is a questline running throughout Season of the Splicer.

Similar to Challenger's Proving during Season of the Chosen, this provides structure to the season's new activities and features, with each week tasking you with using the Splicer Gauntlet and opening chests in Override.

From week three onwards, you also have access to new Expunge missions, which are also required to be completed as part of the quest.

This page explains every Path of the Splicer quest step as they are released - perfect if you want to reach a specific Expunge mission or fall behind and want to catch up.

Season of the Splicer has arrived! Each week offers a new step in the Path of the Splicer quest and a new Expunge mission to complete. Elsewhere, we've seen new Nightfall weapons such as the Uzume RR4, Plug One.1 and Hung Jury SR4. Elsewhere, we've seen the return of Vault of Glass, which offers both the Vex Mythoclast and Fatebringer, as well as new chest locations and Glass Shards to find. Other recent new features include transmog and materials Synthstrand, Synthcord and Synthweave, the Splicer Gauntlet and Decrypted Data used to upgrade it.


When does the Path of the Splicer quest expire?

Though Path of the Splicer is the seasonal quest for Season of the Splicer, it doesn't have to be completed fully before the season ends.

Provided you've started Path of the Splicer while the quest was initially active, these steps - as well as all associated activities, including Override and the Expunge missions - will remain in the game until the end of Season 15, or until the start of 'Year 5' when The Witch Queen expansion arrives.

This is all part of Bungie's attempts to address FOMO (fear of missing out), allowing you to continue to play previous activities for longer, even if later seasons shift their focus to new ones.
