Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen Week 1 Challenges Guide

Guide to Cabal Gold in Destiny 2

Season of the Chosen Week 1 will alllow players to sink their teeth into the new content in Destiny 2. The Seasonal Challenges are pretty important, so you will want to complete them. Each week, the list will refresh, adding new tasks. Each week, Bungie will be adding more over time. We can expect the number to change each week, as well as the difficulty to increase. Here are the Seasonal Challenges in Week 1  of Season of the Chosen.

But first, let’s talk about why you’re doing this. Season of the Chosen remixed a lot of things. The Tribute Chests in the new four-part Battlegrounds are a new loot system, and the primary means for getting Umbral Engrams. Aside from the loot, there are tons of new bosses to fight as well. And you can only get to fight them if you put the work in.

You will need to earn lots of Cabal Gold to do all of this, as pretty much all the content in the new season requires you to spend it. But beyond that, completing Seasonal Challenges will unlock upgrades and loot, like the Proving Runes which improve the Hammer of Proving. The Hammer of Proving is the new main mechanic in Season of the Chosen, you need to upgrade it and add elements to it over the course of Season 13 to get the most out of it. Completing these challenges will also award War Table Reputation, which can used for various things.

Here are each of the new Weekly Seasonal Challenges in Week 1  of Season of the Chosen:
