Destiny 2 Lightfall Week 1

We might be in a brand new era of Destiny 2 with the release of the Lightfall expansion, but that doesn’t mean everything has gone away. To kick off the launch of the latest expansion, we already have a set of Week 1 Challenges to complete that are tied to the Season of Defiance.

Seasons are nothing new in Destiny 2 and this happens to be the 20th one that Guardians have been able to experience in the game. At this point, there is a routine, and many Guardians are already prepping for the weekly challenges. Good thing we have the full list of Week 1 Challenges for Lightfall here.

The first week of a new season typically introduces Guardians to the fresh content in the game such as themed events, Battlegrounds, or new strikes. For Week 1, we’ll all have 10 different challenges to complete that give a broad range of activities, and of course, rewards. You can find the full list below.
