It’s the top of the hour on a Tuesday in Destiny 2, which means that a whole new week has kicked off during the Season of Plunder storyline.
As the current saga starts racing towards its conclusion, things are starting to wind down in the seasonal challenges section of the game. There aren’t too many objectives to pursue, but if you’re looking to get that Scallywag title, you’ll need to grab some fresh Repute this week.
Grab a machine gun or sword this week, and head on down to farm your way through some powerful Vex to get your first piece of Repute. If you’ve been collecting and shaping up seasonal weapons, you can easily grab the second piece of Repute by leveling them up with a quick grind through your favorite Lost Sectors.
If you’re up for a challenge, you can tackle a Legendary Lost Sector and maybe even earn yourself a new Exotic like Fallen Sunstar or Point-Contact Cannon Braces depending on the gear rotations this week.
That steady flow of experience will help fill up your season pass sooner so that you can grab even more loot in the process to outfit your Guardian with in Season of Plunder. You can also tackle seasonal challenges at your own pace, as they’ll only expire once the season concludes in December. 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.

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 Plunder’s challenges will fulfill the requirements for the 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.
