Week 2 of Season of the Haunted has begun in Destiny 2, and after a few objectives focused on the new seasonal activity of Nightmare Containment, it’s time to head back to the Derelict Leviathan.
You’ll want to sharpen your scythe skills this week–here’s how to get the deadly weapon–as you tackle the new activity, and make certain that you have close-range weapons equipped if you want to complete a pair of challenges quickly. Participating in the Iron Banner will also earn you progress, and if you’ve saved up some Umbral Engrams, that’s another easy objective to knock off your to-do list.
For Anti-Cabal Sweep, there are plenty of options. Load up The Arms Dealer, The Inverted Spire, and Proving Grounds for a steady supply of Cabal.
As usual, you’ll gain a substantial amount of experience for completing seasonal challenges. That in turn helps you fill up your season pass sooner, grabbing even more loot in the process to outfit your Guardian with in Season of the Haunted. You can also tackle seasonal challenges at your own pace, as they’ll only expire once a season concludes. If you decide to take a break from Destiny 2 for a week or two, you can return and complete multiple challenges at the same time.
For more on Destiny 2, you can read up on how Iron Banner has been overhauled, the Solar 3.0 abilities that’ll be unlocked after 20 million runs of Nightmare Containment have been completed, and our Season of the Haunted guide.

How Do Seasonal Challenges Work?
Seasonal Challenges can be accessed from the Quests tab in your main menu, which is where you’ll find tasks that revolve around eliminating certain enemies with a specific element, taking part in one of the game’s new activities, or completing a Raid. Each challenge can be completed once per account, and each week will usually add around 10 new challenges which will be active for the duration of the season.
Completing Season of the Risen’s challenges will fulfill the requirements for the Master of All seasonal challenge, which in turn will net you a large Bright Dust reward that can be spent in the Eververse store on select cosmetics, emotes, and items.
