With each Tuesday comes a fresh weekly reset in Destiny 2 and we’ve got everything you need to know for this week, from Nightfall to Europa and Legacy activities.

Destiny 2 may have launched in 2017, but the game shows no signs of slowing down – with Bungie revealing The Witch Queen expansion last month which will usher in the game’s fifth year of content, while the game is also in the midst of Season of the Lost.

With added narrative implications, it’s arguably never been more important to log in each week, and doing so will reveal new challenges for Guardians to face. Here’s everything to do before 6 PM on November 2, courtesy of the Destiny subreddit.

Here’s everything to attempt before 6 PM BST on November 2, at which point we’ll have the new reset info.

Don’t forget, Festival of the Lost is back until November 2, so you’ve got one more week to earn candy!
