Destiny 2 Weekly Reset 1/2 – 1/8: Final Week for Dawning Rewards

Chandler Wood

The December 26 Destiny 2 weekly reset continues The Dawning celebration to the Tower. There’s lots to do for this event, so make sure to check it out.  This week’s Flashpoint is on Io, bringing players back to the Hive and Taken infested planet for yet another luminous engram. Don’t forget to purchase Cayde’s treasure maps leading to the chests in this area too. The Nightfall has the torrent modifier again, so it should be a fun one this week.
