Destiny 2 Weekly Reboot March 14, 2023 - Week Three of Lightfall and Season of Defiance (2023)

This is our Destiny 2 weekly reset coverage for March 14, 2023, our first for Season 20. Now that everyone is fed up with the new raid, it's time to get back to what happened in the Challenge Season. We'll also see what happens with the new exotic quest steps. And finally, let's look at what's for sale on Eververse.

The season quest continues. This week goes up to step 16 of this week. First with our encounter with Mara Sov and then on to a new battlefield - Orbital Prison.

Updated Guardian Ranks: To better reflect our goals, we've reduced the recommended number of points required to complete objectives in all Guardian ranks.

Objective descriptions will be updated on March 16 to reflect the new Commendation requirements.

— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp)March 14, 2023

Bungie released a series of hotfixes Thursday to address some lingering issues since Lightfall's release. Notable changes include fixes to address the Invisible Guardian issue and a rebalancing of Guardian recommendation requirements by rank.

Destiny 2 weekly reset time

As always, Destiny 2's weekly reset times are at 10:00 AM PDT for US West Coast folks. 6 AM BST for our UK readers. And 2am JST the next day for everyone in Japan.
