Destiny 2 Weekly Reset for January 9, 2018

The Dawning is over, so it's back to business with the January 9, 2018 Destiny 2 weekly reset.


With the January 9, 2018 reset in Destiny 2, players will see the end of the Dawning event that aimed to take their money more than entertained them. Destiny 2 will be getting back to the same old grind as it normally settles into, with players searching for ways to complete armor sets and reach the max power level through the engrams offered upcon completing milestones. Below is a list of everything that you should expect to find in Destiny 2 over the coming week.

Nightfall - The Arms Dealer

The Arms Dealer isn't a bad strike to have pop up as the Nightfall. You can mess this guy up before he has a chance to flee to one of his platforms if you know what you're doing. Golden Gun and Celestial Nighthawk, along with some Curtain Call rockets timed to fit with Prism, and this fight is over.


  • Prism - Attacks matching the periodically rotating focused element do more damage. Other elemental damage is reduced. Incoming damage is unaffected
  • Timewarp: Killing Time - Defeat enemies to extend the mission timer, up to a limit


  • Speed of Dark - Complete the Nightfall with at least five minutes remaining
  • Unbroken - Complete the Nightfall with fewer than three deaths
  • Trash the Thresher - Shoot down a Thresher while fighting Bracus Zahn

Flashpoint - EDZ

This week's Flashpoint takes place in the EDZ, which should make you happy. Earth is one of the better places to grind public events, so you'll find completing the Flashpoint quite simple. Don't forget to snag Cayde's treasure maps.
