With the news of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and New Light release date being delayed, players were eager to hear how the next two months were going to go. Bungie released a roadmap to help Guardians stay busy until they return to the Moon. Below you’ll find out what to expect in the Destiny 2 update

  • Moments of Triumph is extended through 9/17.
  • Gambit Prime and Reckoning weapon reward rates will be highly increased.
    • They will also have bad-luck protection to guarantee a drop after a set amount of runs.
  • The Reckoning difficulty will be tuned down.
  • BrayTech Schematics will no longer have a daily lockout and will give better chances toward weapons that aren’t owned.
  • Mountaintop and Wendigo GL3 pinnacle quests will become more accessible.
    • Specific quest objectives will be tuned based on player feedback
  • Multiple weeks of increased Valor and Infamy in September.
    • Iron Banner will have increased Valor in each event.
  • Menagerie chests will become more rewarding the closer to Shadowkeep.
  • A Community Challenge will be held the week of Destiny 2 Update

Pinnacle Weapons Get Easier

With Moments of Triumph being extended, this gives players more time to try and get a pinnacle weapon. The Mountaintop Crucible pinnacle weapon and Wendigo GL3 Vanguard pinnacle weapon will be a little easier to get after the update.

As of now, the Mountaintop is a difficult pinnacle weapon to get. Players will need to get kills, multi-kills, earn medals and reach Glory rank Brave and Fabled in Competitive Crucible. Glory only increases when players win, making each match important. Players must use a grenade launcher to make progress.

The Wendigo GL3 requires players to earn kills, multi-kills, and earn points by defeating enemies in the Vanguard Strike list while using a grenade launcher. Luckily we have a guide on how to earn the Wendigo GL3.

From August 27 to October 1, players will be able to earn more Infamy and Valor thanks to a bonus XP week. The five day boost will help players reach milestones like resetting Infamy and Valor.

Destiny 2 update will release on September 3, 2019. Once those changes are made, we will update accordingly. If you’re a little eager to slowly make progress on the Mountaintop or Wendigo GL3, nothing is stopping you. Destiny 2 is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
