Season 20 Destiny 2: Complete Overview, New Raid Insights, and Weapon Crafting Strategies

Get ready Guardians, because the highly anticipated Destiny 2 Season 20 is finally here! After bidding farewell to the Season of the Seraph, players are eagerly diving into the new adventures awaiting them in this latest season.

Destiny 2 Season 20 launched alongside the Destiny 2 Lightfall expansion, introducing an array of exciting new content. If you’re curious about what’s in store for the free PC game in Season 20, we’ve got you covered with all the details.

The release date for Destiny 2 Season 20 was February 28, coinciding with the launch of the Lightfall expansion. The release occurred simultaneously with the weekly reset at 9am PST / 12pm EST / 5pm UTC.

To access the Season 20 content, players needed to purchase the Lightfall Standard Edition, which includes a season 20 pass. The Lightfall ownership is a requirement for accessing Season 20. There were three purchasing options available for Season 20:

  • Destiny 2: Lightfall Standard Edition (includes season 20 pass only) – $50
  • Destiny 2 Lightfall: Annual Pass Edition (includes seasons 20-23 and dungeon key) – $100
  • Destiny 2 Lightfall: Collector’s Edition (includes seasons 20-23, dungeon key, and exclusive collectibles) – $250

What to expect in Destiny 2 Season 20

Following Bungie’s seasonal model, Destiny 2 Season 20 features weekly story missions, an artifact with upgrades, a vendor offering upgrades for seasonal armor and weapon focusing, and several seasonal exotic weapons.

Bungie ensures a clear distinction between expansion content and seasonal content. It is likely that the overarching Lightfall expansion will focus on the campaign and the new Strand subclass, while seasonal content will be rolled out incrementally over the following weeks. For example, The Witch Queen expansion focused on the hunt for Savathun, accompanied by Throne World quests, while the simultaneous Season of the Risen introduced the PsiOps Battleground, the Dead Messenger exotic grenade launcher quest, weekly story missions, additional rewards for leveling up the season pass, and a wider selection of seasonal gear and armor.

Destiny 2 Strand subclass, new raid, and seasonal activity

Players who own Lightfall and Destiny 2 Season 20 will gain access to the new Destiny 2 Strand subclass. This subclass will be unlocked during the Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign, with Strand-focused Aspects and Fragments becoming available to all players who gather enough Strand Meditations. Once players reach the soft cap power level with one character, they will have the option to purchase armor sets at that level for their other characters. Additionally, for those who have completed the campaign and prefer not to replay the content on their alternate characters, a boost can be purchased to skip the campaign and unlock the Strand subclass instantly.

Discover the Exciting New Strand Subclasses in Destiny 2

If you’re a fan of Destiny 2, get ready for an epic update! Bungie has introduced the Strand subclasses, bringing a whole new level of gameplay to the popular game. The Strand Warlocks, Strand Titans, and Strand Hunters are about to embark on exhilarating adventures with their unique abilities.

The Broodweavers, also known as Strand Warlocks, have the extraordinary power to twist the Strand into sentient creatures. They can then command these creatures to fight against their enemies. Witness the awe-inspiring control over the fabric of spacetime as Strand Titans, known as Berserkers, manifest deadly claws from the Weave. Lastly, the Strand Hunters, or Threadrunners, are masters at manipulating the threads of the Strand. With their ability to grasp and weave new threads, they effortlessly move through the air.

In addition to these thrilling new subclasses, Strand weapons introduce a fascinating mechanic similar to Warmind cells. Unlike their predecessors, Strand ‘tangles’ float in the air, waiting for skillful Guardians to grab and throw them. But be warned, shooting these tangles will cause them to explode, inflicting Strand damage upon enemies.

Unleash the Power of Season 20 Weapons, Exotics, and Buildcrafting

Destiny 2’s Lightfall DLC and season 20 bring a host of new weapons and exotics to enhance your gameplay. Get ready to wield the Final Warning, an exquisite exotic Strand sidearm that fires charged tracking rounds, seeking out nearby enemies. Or try the Deterministic Chaos, an exotic Void machine gun that weakens enemies with its rhythmic debuffs, growing more volatile with each shot.

For those who embrace the Stasis subclass, the Winterbite exotic glaive allows you to freeze enemies with frost orbs. And for Hunters, the Cyrtarachne’s Facade exotic helmet enhances your grappling abilities, giving you Woven Mail and flinch resistance. Warlocks will find Swarmers exotic leg armor invaluable as it spawns threadlings when destroying tangles, while Titans wearing the Abeyant Leap exotic leg armor witness barricades spawning additional lashes.

Bungie has also revamped the buildcrafting systems. Now you can create and store up to ten loadouts per character, with a grand total of 30 stored loadouts. The game also introduces a built-in Looking for Group feature and a Commendations system where Guardians can offer kudos to helpful teammates, earning additional bonuses.

Destiny 2 season 20 places a strong emphasis on heavy weapon tuning, especially in PvE content. Additionally, exotic weapons will receive subclass verbs that enhance their anti-Champion capabilities. Prepare for thrilling new effects and abilities, such as chaining shots with the Queenbreaker and Grand Overture, or applying volatile on a perfect draw impact with Leviathan’s Breath.

These are just a taste of the many exciting changes and improvements coming in Destiny 2 season 20. Get ready to dive into an enhanced gameplay experience with new subclasses, powerful weapons, and an improved buildcrafting system.

Exciting changes are coming to Destiny 2 in the next season! Starting from the upcoming season, Umbral engrams will be replaced by seasonal engrams. But that’s not all, there will also be some significant updates to engram focusing. Now, players can head over to Zavala and focus Vanguard engrams into gear or weapons. Additionally, Nightfall weapons can also be focused, and Adept Nightfall Ciphers can be earned from Grandmaster Nightfalls for this purpose. Make sure to check out the complete breakdown of these focusing updates here.

In season 20, Ada-1 will be offering shaders in exchange for Glimmer. This addition will give players more options to customize their gear and make a style statement in the game.

Get ready for Destiny 2 season 20 weapon crafting

In a recent update from Bungie’s This Week at Bungie (TWAB) series, the studio confirmed that players will be able to craft several types of weapons in season 20. This includes seasonal weapons, Neomuna weapons, base raid weapons, and a few other unique weapons that cannot be found in The Witch Queen sources.

Furthermore, Bungie is simplifying the weapon crafting currencies. Resonant stems will no longer be required, but resonant alloys will still be used. Red border weapons will now only appear on craftable weapons, and the deepsight objectives will be removed. These changes aim to create a more streamlined and intuitive weapon crafting experience for players.

This is all the information we have about Destiny 2 season 20 so far. Keep an eye out for more updates from Bungie as they reveal what’s in store for the upcoming season.
