Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted Weekly Challenges: All Season 17 Seasonal Challenges

Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted Weekly Challenges: All Season 17 Seasonal Challenges

Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted has just begun and that means players have plenty of new weekly challenges for Season 17 to start completing every week for big XP gains. For those New Lights who have only just joined the game with the release of the new season who might not know how this works, here’s the gist.

Every season Bungie will release ten weeks of Destiny 2 seasonal challenges, with a new set released every Tuesday following the Destiny 2 Weekly Reset. These challenges come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but in general, they’ll have you completing challenges throughout the game’s numerous activities. That might mean getting certain types of kills, playing Crucible matches, banking motes in Gambit, or undertaking high-level Nightfall Strikes.

Want to know more? Then read on and we’ll explain how to get these weekly challenges along with the details of the active weekly challenges in Destiny 2 Season of the Risen.

How do you get the weekly challenges in Destiny 2?

Don’t fret, because you don’t actually need to do anything. Weekly challenges will appear automatically inside the quests menu in the director, with weekly challenges appearing at the top and if you click on the menu you can see how you’re progressing with each challenge from each active week in the season. A new set of challenges will automatically go live every week following the Destiny 2 weekly reset. Further down you’ll find a list of all the challenges which are currently active in Season of the Risen so far, but we’ll keep adding to it every week when more challenges are added.
