Destiny 2 Update Launches the Tribute Hall, Moments of Triumph, and a Secret Gun, All the Patch Notes

Tuesday’s are usually exciting for Destiny players when weekly reset shifts over to a new week of content and activities, but this week is particularly special. Along with Destiny 2 update 2.5.1.1, Bungie launched the Tribute Hall and Moments of Triumph, which give Guardians plenty of things to do as they pursue accomplishments and a new (well, returning) Exotic pulse rifle.

To start the Tribute Hall, head over to Werner on the Leviathan Barge on Nessus and interact with the chest next to him to get an Invitation. You’ll be able to go to the Tribute Hall which is beside the Leviathan icon, and while turning in Tributes, it will unlock the beginning of the quest for Bad Juju. Today’s update also launches the Moments of Triumph, which will run through August 27, 2019. The Moments of Triumph event is a celebration of the last year of Destiny 2, and like most years, Guardians can earn in-game rewards and a real-world shirt to memorialize their accomplishments. To start this year’s Triumphs, just check out the Triumphs page in-game.

There were a few other changes made in this update as well, including some fixes to bugs and cheeses (RIP to the Menagerie chest grind and Gauntlet grenade launcher exploits). There was also a big shift to clan experience to better disperse XP rewards across in-game activities. Here are the rest of the patch notes:
