Destiny 2 weekly reset

The 9/12 Destiny 2 weekly reset brings us a new Nightfall on a familiar strike for anyone that’s been following Destiny 2 news since the reveal, and takes Guardians to Nessus to complete public events. With speculation rampant that the raid begins on Nessus, it seems that area is this week’s big focus.

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset 9/12 – 9/18

Nightfall: The Inverted Spire

Arcadian Valley, Nessus – End the Red Legion expedition that has ripped open the planet’s surface.


Prism: Your attacks matching the focused element deal increased damage. All other elemental damage is reduced. Kinetic and incoming damage is unaffected. The focused element rotates periodically.

Timewarp – Rings: Vex time gates have appeared in the area. Pass through them to discharge temporal energy and extend the mission timer.


Speed Of Dark: Complete the Nightfall with at least 5 minutes remaining.

Unbroken: Complete the Nightfall with fewer than 3 deaths.

The Floor Is Lava: As a fireteam, do not get hit by Protheon’s fiery ground attack before defeating it.

Flashpoint: Nessus

Complete public events on Nessus.

The Destiny 2 weekly reset occurs every Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM Pacific (1:00 AM when Daylight Savings Time is active). The following activities are reset each week, allowing you to earn new rewards for completing them.

The weekly reset allows you to earn new rewards per character, except the Cayde-6 treasure maps which are account based. Destiny 2 Nightfalls are difficult timer based strikes. Rotating modifiers will allow you to earn additional time in various ways.

There is also a daily reset that occurs at the same time daily, resetting the challenges for each activity and replayable adventures at each patrol location. Information on the seasonal reset for clans is unavailable at this time.
