You might be full of Thanksgiving turkey right now, but if you still have an appetite for destruction, Destiny 2’s Trials of Osiris is the place to be for the next few days. As usual, it will be another weekend of intense PvP action as players battle it out for a chance to go flawless and earn some of the best loot in the game. Here’s how you’ll play Trials of Osiris this weekend and what weapons you can earn.
Map: Alatar of Flame
- Reputation Rank 4: Upgrade Module x 2
- Reputation Rank 7: Enhancement Prism x 3
- Reputation Rank 10: Trial Weapon (changes for each rank reset)
- Reputation Rank 13: Upgrade Module x 2
- Reputation Rank 16: Trial Weapon (changes for each rank reset)
- Flawless Reward: Burden of Guilt (Adept)
Trial weapons now carry the Alacrity Origin Trait. It gives you increased aim assist, reload speed, stability, and range on your Trials weapons when you’re the last member of a fireteam or running solo. You can also choose to switch to the Crucible Origin move, One Quiet Moment, which greatly improves your weapon’s reload speed when reloading while out of combat.
As always, trials will be available from Friday’s daily reset at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET until the weekly reset at the same time next Tuesday. During that time, you can also visit Xur to see what exotic items he sells. Be sure to visit Saint-14 in the tower to pick up a trial card, which will dictate certain bonuses (such as whether you get bonus rewards at certain milestones or whether a loss will be forgiven).
Trials of Osiris is a weekend PvP mode that goes from the daily reset on Friday to the weekly reset on Tuesday, giving you four days to participate. Your goal in the trials is for you and the other two players in your fireteam to achieve a “Flawless” run, where you win seven matches without losing any.
Go flawless and you’ll earn a trip to the lighthouse and receive some special rewards, including the new Adept weapons. These have additional stat bonuses, making them the most sought-after items you can get your hands on.
However, thanks to a bunch of changes to Trials this year, the mode is a bit easier to get into than it has been. The Trials of Osiris now has matchmaking, so you can jump into matches even if you don’t have a full squad of three players to take it on. Your trial pass – the card you buy from Saint-14 that gives you access to the mode and tracks your winnings – do it now not track your losses – so you can keep playing and earning rewards even if you lose on a flawless run. Bungie has also adjusted Trials so that you earn rewards based on numbers roundsinstead of battles, you’ve won over the course of the session, adding a reputation system similar to Crucible and Gambit, making it easier to earn some of Trials of Osiris’ unique loot.
Finally, you’ll earn Trials Engrams for participating in the mode, which you can cash in with Saint-14 during the weekend you receive them. You can tweak these engrams to provide specific loot, or take your chances with random drops that will expand what’s available in your loot. So even if you’re just jumping into Trials alone, there are plenty of ways to earn great new gear.
