Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen Week 3 Challenges Guide

Destiny 2

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 3 of Season of the Chosen. The Hammer of Proving is continuing to be a big focus this week, as are the ongoing battles with the Cabal. You will be expected to take on various PvP and PvE activities this week for the seasonal challenges.

Each time these tasks pop up, gamers can expect to see some new and old tasks return. These seasonal challenges involve interacting with the seasonal mechanic to a very heavy degree. You need to farm tons of Cabal Gold and other rewards to complete these quests. Iron Banner and Gambit modes are good for farming this week, and for the rest of Season of the Chosen.

Various tasks may ask you to play certain game modes. You may also be asked to complete Bounties with certain weapons to score kills in PvE quickly. It will vary from week to week, hence this rotating guide on the challenges. 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.

Here are each of the new Weekly Seasonal Challenges in Week 3 of Season of the Chosen:

All Destiny 3 Season of the Chosen Week 2 Challenges

Contender’s Ascent III

You need to earn 42 Cabal Gold to complete the Challenger’s Proving III Quest. Head to the HELM base and check in to figure out what to do. Just like last week, you’re expected to have to farm Cabal Gold, socket a Hammer Charge and burst a Tribute Chest, all while completing complete another Battlegrounds run. It’s a very involved process, and it’s only going to get harder as time goes on.
