This week Bungie allowed Destiny 2 players vote for the card they will play during the next Osiris Test event, rather than choosing a card at random. Results of this vote: you play at the Altar of Flame this weekend for four more days of the toughest competition in the game. Here’s everything you need to know about Osiris ’trials this weekend, including what you can win for becoming flawless.
As long as we have a card, we won’t know what weapons adherents can earn for flawless trials until the event begins with a daily reset on Friday. We will update this article when the trials begin.
- Map – Altar of Flame
- 20 rounds won – Pinnacle Trials Engram
- 7 matches won – Pinnacle Trials Engram
- Reputation Rank 10 – Eye of the Sun (kinetic sniper rifle); after resetting reputation, Wrath of Shayura (Void submachine gun)
- Reputation Rank 16 – Messenger (kinetic impulse rifle); after resetting his reputation, Reed’s Regret (Stasis linear fusion rifle)
Starting this season, the Weapons Trials have been slightly improved, with a new feature of Alacrity Origin. This gives you increased aiming assistance, reload speed, stability and range on your test guns if you are the last living member of the fire group or running alone. You can also go on the Crucible Origin Trail, One Quiet Moment route, which greatly increases the reload speed of your pistol when you recharge out of combat.
As always, trial versions will be available from the daily reset on Friday at 10 a.m. on the patch and 1 p.m. on the ET until the weekly reset at the same time next Tuesday. At this time you can also visit Xur to see what exotics he sells. Be sure to visit Saint-14 in the Tower to pick up a Trials card that will dictate certain bonuses (e.g., you will receive bonus rewards at certain stages or when a loss is forgiven).
Osiris Trials is a weekend PvP mode that runs from a daily reset on Friday to a weekly reset on Tuesday, giving you four days to participate. Your goal in the test is for you and the other two players of your fire team to achieve a “flawless” start in which you win seven matches without losing a single one.
Go flawless and you’ll get a trip to the Lighthouse and get some special rewards including new weapons adherents. They have extra bonuses, making them some of the most coveted items you can get.
However, thanks to a bunch of changes in the tests this season, the mode is a little easier to enter than it was before. The “Test of Osiris” now has matchmaking, so you can jump into matches even if you don’t have a full lineup of three players. Your Trials Passage, a card you buy at Saint-14 that gives you access to the mode and tracks your winnings, now makes no track your losses – so you can continue to play and earn rewards, even if you lose in a perfect run. Bungie has also set up trials so you get rewards depending on the number toursrather than the matches you won during the session, and added a reputation system similar to Crucible and Gambit, making it easy to earn some of Osiris ’unique test gains.
Finally, you will receive trial engrams for participating in the mode, which you can earn from Saint-14 on the weekend if you receive them. With the new update, you can customize these engrams to get certain pieces of booty, or take a chance with random cases that expand what’s available in your booty pool. So even if you just jump into the test alone, there are many ways to earn great new gear.
