Destiny 2’s pinnacle PVP activity, Trials of Osiris, has finally returned to the Crucible for Season of Plunder. Here’s everything we know about Trials of Osiris this weekend (December 23), including the map and rewards.

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:

  • Trials will only be available to players that own the latest annual expansion (The Witch Queen)
  • You can keep playing once you’ve accrued three losses and still earn gear (although Trials will only offer its best rewards to Flawless runs)
  • PC players will now notice BattlEye anti-cheat is in effect spire of the watcher carry and recovery
  • Perhaps the biggest change is that Trials of Osiris will now offer matchmaking

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.

Trials of Osiris boost rewards this week (December 23 – 27)

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.

  • Reputation Rank 10 – The Inquisitor (Arc Shotgun)
  • Reputation Rank 16 – Whistler’s Whim (Kinetic Bow)
  • Flawless run – Whistler’s Whim (Adept) (Kinetic Bow)

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.

Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Passages explained

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:

  • Passages no longer track losses
    • Each Passage is either Flawless or not, which allows you to keep playing and earning rewards regardless of how many losses you suffer
    • Players can still reset their Passage after a loss, but are no longer forced to do so after hitting three losses on their card
  • Passages now track up to 20 rounds won
  • All Passages have had their prices significantly reduced
  • Passages are now account-wide, meaning you can play and earn rewards on any of your characters using the same Passage

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:

  • Passage of Mercy: This Passage forgives one loss per run
    • If your goal is to make it all the way to the Lighthouse, this is the Passage for you. You’ll get one free loss without needing to reset your card and start from scratch
  • Passage of Ferocity: This Passage grants you a bonus win after reaching three wins on your card
    • Usually the next choice behind Mercy for Flawless runs, this will allow you to skip an entire match on your way to the Lighthouse — but, you won’t have the loss forgiveness that comes with Mercy
  • Passage of Wealth: This Passage grants increased Trials Rank points from reaching 3, 5, and 7 match wins
    • If you’re more focused on farming Trials rewards, and aren’t concerned about going Flawless, this is the card for you. With the new Trials reputation system, the Passage of Wealth will bump up your rank with Saint-14 more quickly than any other card
  • Passage of Confidence: This Passage grants a bonus reward from the Flawless chest, but you can only acquire this card after already going Flawless that week
    • If you’re confident about your skills and have a solid fireteam to play with, the Passage of Confidence can help you rack up more rewards at the Lighthouse, but is arguably the most difficult Passage to play

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.

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.
