When does Season of the Depths end and Destiny 2 Season 22 begin?

The Season of the Deep is scheduled to run from Tuesday, May 23, 2023 to Tuesday, August 22. That will also mark the beginning of Season 22.

This will occur during the weekly reset at the following times:

  • UK – 6pm (BST)

  • US East Coast – 1:00 PM (EDT)
  • US West Coast: 10 am (PDT)

As always, players should expect Season 22 to come with the usual cadence of Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner PvP events. There will be a seasonal story to follow, October traditionally brings with it the spooky Festival of the Lost.

What’s new in Destiny 2 Season 22?

Destiny 2 has been going through some major overhauls of late, and this continues across almost every mode in Season 22.

in the crucible

New Vex-themed PvP map called Multiplex. This is the first new crucible map in quite some time. It’s themed around the Vex Network, so get ready to take on other Guardians in an even more digital landscape than usual.

New checkmate modifier in Crucible Labs, focusing on more time to kill with weapons and less on skills. Player health increases, cooldowns take longer, and special ammo will be harder to come by, so strong tactics with standard weapons will be paramount.

New relic mode. This is a new type of game for the Crucible, where each Guardian gains a charge for getting kills, which can then be used to summon an “relic” weapon, such as the Aegis from the Vault of Glass raid or the Schthe of the Season. . of the Enchanted

In PvE

A repeat raid will resume on Friday, September 1, 2023. The raid has yet to be announced, but likely candidates for a returning raid include Crota’s End or Wrath of the Machine. This will have the normal race in contest mode to finish first for the first 48 hours, and become the “active” raid for high-tier weekly loot.

Vanguard medals are being added to the Vanguard playlist. Like the Guardian Games medals, these will be optional score boosters that will award additional points for completing any objective that is on the medal.

Vanguard rotations will also see the addition of more Battlegrounds activities, increasing the diversity of content in those rotations.

An exotic quest rotator is being added. This allows players to play old exotic weapon quests and obtain exotic weapons associated with them. These include weapons like Dead Messenger and Dead Man’s Tale, which will also be craftable.

in gambit

Gambit is being downplayed as an activity, largely due to a lack of players committing to it. This means that any major updates are unlikely and will be less important than Crucible and Vanguard Ops as a weekly activity for Guardians to complete.

Other general changes

New skins are being added to the Strand subclass. Hunters will be able to add Whirling Maelstrom, Titans the Banner of War and Warlocks will get Weavewalk. The specific abilities of these skins have yet to be revealed, but the skins often add powerful effects and can be game-changers for carefully crafted builds.

Cosmetics may be favorites. This is a small quality of life improvement for fashion-oriented Guardians. Previously, locating a specific shader among hundreds of options was now a potentially time-consuming task. Now you can set up to 100 shaders, embellishments and gestures as favorites for quick and easy access.

The Transmat effect, which shows a brief image or hologram before your ward appears, will become an unlock, rather than a consumable. Previously, adding a transmat effect to your ship would remove the item from your inventory; if you wanted to equip it on another ship, you would need to find another. With Season 22, transmat effects become universal and are permanently unlocked, so you can use whatever you want at any time.

There are a few other gear changes that have been announced, but not detailed. These include reworks of rarely used exotics, weapon tuning changes, and general adjustments to how things like damage falloff from long-range shots affect damage. The maximum number of Masterwork Materials that can be kept will be increased.

Destiny 2 Season of Defiance End Date: When will Season 21 end?

This is your last chance to experience the story of Season of the Deep. You can follow our Into the Depths quest guide to see all the steps. It also means that you will soon be running out of time to increase your Season Rank to 100 and collect all the rewards.

It’s also a good time to finish any of the Season Triumphs. These challenges reward a lot of experience and can give you additional rewards like Bright Dust and Nightfall Weapons.

You could spend some time preparing for a quick start to Season 22. Filling your pockets with rewards and completing them, but not turning them in, can lead to some levels if you collect them early in the next season. It’s a classic move for a reason.

And of course, you can always keep playing to run around and collect loot. There’s nothing wrong with taking on a few more Root of Nightmares raids or getting the latest weapon in the Nightfall rotation.
