The Destiny 2 Weekly Word from Bungie has Forsaken All Over It

As always Bungie has it covered with just what is happening behind the scenes and this week is extra special with Solstice of Heroes in full swing and Guardians looking and playing their best. Destiny 2 has hit a crucial point in its life, a point that will either push or pull players in whether they are long time veterans or just coming into the fray.

For the quick and dirty, Solstice of Heroes is a month-long event lasting until August 28 where Guardians can revisit certain campaign missions with drastic twist (so many Servitors).

This is a time for celebration with Bungie showing players just how much their hard work has payed off and the numbers are impressive to say the least. Season 3 for Destiny 2 has seen substantial uptick in player activity with more to do on the table since Warmind’s launch with study content all week, secrets to chase or just the usual grind Guardians are staying busy.

With Year 1 of Destiny 2 ending it marks a time when certain things must be left behind to make way for the new, below is a list of every item being retired after Year 1 and Season 4 starts with Forsaken.

  • Vanguard
    • Year 1 weapons
    • Year 1 armor
    • Seasonal rewards
  • Crucible
    • Year 1 weapons
    • Year 1 armor
    • Seasonal rewards
  • Gunsmith
    • Year 1 weapons
    • Year 1 mods, which will no longer be obtainable
    • Year 1 emblems
  • Ikora (Vanguard Research Packages from Meditations)
    • Year 1 armor
    • Year 1 emblems
  • Trials of the Nine
    • Year 1 weapons
    • Year 1 armor
    • Year 1 shaders
    • Year 1 ships, Sparrows, and Ghost Shells
  • Iron Banner
    • Year 1 weapons
    • Year 1 armor
    • Year 1 shaders
    • Year 1 ships, Sparrows, and Ghost Shells
  • Cayde’s Stashes
    • Year 1 emblems

It isn’t all bad: with Year 1 items out, vendors will be restocking their wears with new items that come with those newly-improved random rolls. Certain items could make a return, but they won’t be the same. With Year 1 items out, it doesn’t mean they can’t be put to use with Year 1 items being readily available to infuse into Year 2 items for more powerful gear.

At the tale end of it all comes something extra special with Bungie hosting a Destiny 2: Forsaken Combat Stream on August 7 at 10 a.m. PT. Destiny 2: Forsaken launches September 4 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
