What you need to know

  • The Wrathborn Hunt activity for Destiny 2's Season of the Hunt are now available.
  • Wrathborn Hunts involve hunting down the lieutenants of the Hive Goddess of War, Xivu Arath.
  • These Wrathborn Hunts will help you to earn special seasonal rewards, such as new weapons.

Destiny 2's Season of the Hunt content has officially arrived today across all platforms. Specifically, players will be able to access the season's opening story mission and Wrathborn Hunts, which are missions where players hunt down the lieutenants of the Hive Goddess of War, Xivu Arath. By completing Wraihborn Hunts, players will be able to work towards earning the new seasonal weapons.

Over the course of the season, players will need to work with The Spider on The Tangled Shore and charge up a special Lure item in order to draw out Xivu Arath herself. Then, presumably, we will challenge her in battle to take her down once and for all. However, considering how important of a character she is in the story, there's also a chance that she won't be defeated for good at the end of the season too. Ultimately, only time will tell.

Destiny 2's base game experience is available for free, and Destiny 2: Beyond Light is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Windows 10 PCs for $40. You can also get it through Xbox Game Pass. If you've never tried out Destiny 2, I recommend doing so, as it's easily one of the best Xbox One shooters.
