Destiny 2’s Season of Plunder has made way for Season of the Seraph, meaning there’s plenty to do for Guardians — whether it’s completing seasonal challenges, a new season pass, or the seasonal artifact.
Although the playlist has traditionally struggled with issues like cheaters, account recovery services, and technical issues within the broader Destiny 2 experience, Bungie has rolled out some fresh tweaks in recent seasons to improve things.
Here’s a super quick rundown of what you can expect from Trials of Osiris in the seasons ahead:
While you’re here, why not check out Xur’s location, too?
Here’s everything you need to know before jumping into Trials this week.
As of 5 PM GMT/10 AM PT/1 PM ET on Friday, December 23, the Trials of Osiris map is Midtown.
Destiny 2 player R3likt has created a series of great callout maps. Here’s the one for last week.
Relikt’s maps are key to going flawless
Rather than the 3, 5, 7, and Flawless win thresholds previously required for rewards, players no longer earn specific weapon drops. In fact, you’ll now earn Trials Engrams for leveling up your reputation with Saint-14 in the Tower’s Hangar.
You will, however, earn a rotating “Adept” weapon for a Flawless run, but the full rewards for Season of Plunder haven’t been revealed as yet.
Once a Trials of Osiris reward has been unlocked, you can re-roll for the cost of a Trials engram – meaning farming rolls has never been easier.

Don’t forget, though, that you can get better gear with higher stat rolls by going Flawless. Rank 10 and Rank 16 Trials Reputation will also guarantee weapon drops.
With the playlist revamp in Season of the Lost, Trials of Osiris also underwent some changes to its Passages (or Cards). These quest items grant you access to the Trials playlist each weekend, and there are some important changes to note under the new system:
Make sure you grab the right Passage before hopping into Trials for the weekend.
These changes, and what they mean for you when gearing up for the playlist, can be pretty confusing. Fortunately, we have a breakdown of each Passage, what it does, and which one might be right for you:
Picking the right Passage for you (and your teammates, if you plan on entering Trials with a pre-made fireteam) will go a long way towards making sure you get the most out of your time in the playlist each weekend.
The Adept Igneous Hammer is one of the many Flawless rewards that rotate each week.
Trials of Osiris will next go live on Friday (December 23) at daily reset (10 A.M. PDT / 1 P.M. EDT / 5 P.M. GMT / 7 P.M. CET) and will remain active in the Crucible directory until Destiny 2’s weekly reset on the following Tuesday (December 27).
Before diving into the competition, you’ll need to make a stop at the Tower’s Hangar and talk to Saint-14, the Destiny 2 vendor who oversees Trials. He’ll be your main source of bounties and rewards throughout the week, and the person who provides each of your Trials Passages.
There you have it, that’s everything you need to know about the Trials of Osiris map and rewards for this week. Make sure to jump into the playlist with a couple of your buddies before next week’s reset puts the game mode on its typical hiatus.
