Trials of OsirisSource: Bungie

The competitive PvP mode Trials of Osiris is now live in Destiny 2 from April 30 until May 4, and can be access from the Crucible playlist in the Director menu. In Trials of Osiris, two teams of three players go head-to-head over the course of several rounds. Whoever wins the most rounds wins the match, and whoever wins the match has a win added to their Trials card. Getting three, five, and seven wins during Trials weekend will get you several pieces of Trials gear that you can't get anywhere else, and if you're able to win seven games in a row, you'll go flawless. Going flawless allows you and your teammates to travel to the Lighthouse area, where you will be awarded a unique piece of Adept Trials loot that has better stats compared to non-Adept versions of the gear in question.

Notably, the map that Trials matches take place on changes every week. This week, the map is Widow's Court, which features a mix of both long sniper sightlines, and close-quarters hotspots. Bring your sniper or shotgun!

The gear that you get from playing well in Trials of Osiris is typically some of the best in the entire game. This week is no different, as the excellent Exile's Curse fusion rifle is available for only three wins. Additionally, this week is also great for armor collectors as both the Trials of Osiris helmet and leg armors are available as rewards for five and seven wins, respectively. Going flawless will net you an Adept version of the Exile's Curse, which you should definitely try and chase if you like fusion rifles.

  • 3 Wins: Exile's Curse (Fusion Rifle)
  • 5 Wins: Helmet (Armor)
  • 7 Wins: Legs (Armor)
  • Flawless: Exile's Curse (Adept) (Fusion Rifle)
