Bungie Changes Destiny 2 Trials Map and Mode This Week Due to an Exploit on Altar of Flame
The map and mode for Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine have been changed this week. Some players this morning were able to play Survival on Altar of Flame, but due to an exploit where players could leave the environment, Bungie made an update. The Trials of the Nine will be Countdown on Eternity for the remainder of the weekend, mimicking the same map and mode that Trials had when it first released last weekend. Bungie tweeted the announcement on their support Twitter.
Due to a bug where players can escape the environment on Altar of Flame, we’ve changed this week’s Trials to Countdown on Eternity.

Trials of the Nine is a 4v4 activity but is not matchmade, so you will need to bring in your own four-person fireteam. Each weekend, the map and mode for Trials will rotate to present new challenges for players, but will remain the same single map and mode for the duration of the weekend so that teams can work out strategies and learn the call outs. Other teams will be doing the same, so prepare for some tough fights.
To access Trials of the Nine, players must complete the Destiny 2 campaign, finish Shaxx’s Call to Arms milestone at least one time, and be a power level of 260 or greater.
Loadouts are locked for Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine, so make sure you enter the activity with the weapons and subclass that you intend to use. You won’t be able to change them mid-match. Level advantages are disabled, so don’t worry if you don’t have the best endgame gear. Just go in with weapons you feel comfortable with. This makes Trials more about individual player skill than powerful gear.
Gather your fireteam and fight for victory, Guardians! Check out our Destiny 2 endgame guide for more on what to do after the campaign is done, and how to trigger heroic public events in every patrol. Don’t forget that Xur is here for the weekend too! Check his location and inventory to see if there’s anything you want.
