Destiny 2 Weekly Reset for January 2: Nightfall Strike, Flashpoint, Faction Weapons, Eververse

The first weekly reset of the new year has officially arrived for Destiny 2, featuring several new milestones for Guardians to pursue in their journey to obtain powerful gear. This also marks the point where Bungie starts to wrap up its seasonal event, The Dawning, that will remain available for just this week.

Nightfall Strike: A Garden World
This is the first time that Guardians will be heading out to Mercury since the release of the expansion pack. This, of course, means that those yet to purchase Curse of Osiris will be unable to complete the activity.


  • Torrent – Boundless Power erupts from within. Your abilities recharge much faster
  • Timewarp: Zero Hour – The mission timer cannot be extended. Choose your battles carefully


  • Speed of Dark – Complete the Nightfall with at least 5 minutes remaining.
  • Unbroken – Complete the Nightfall with fewer than 3 deaths
  • Shielded Minotaur Challenge – Kill the Shielded Minotaurs in under 90 seconds

Flashpoint: Io
Prepare to travel to the moon of Jupiter for a few Public Events. Make sure to visit Cayde-6 and buy his treasure maps beforehand for an easier grind.


  • Fury – Use the Warmind on Io to learn more about the Almight
  • The Gateway – Must have Curse of Osiris
  • Sacrilege – Ikora’s quest about learning more on her loss of light

The following vendors will supply each of the listed weapons throughout this week. They also sell armor, but they usually remain the same regardless.

  • Failsafe – Seven-Six-Five Scout Rifle
