A new reset in Destiny 2 means a new set of weekly challenges for you to grind. Whether you want extra experience points to help progress the new Season of the Lost season pass or some bright dust to buy that shiny new ornament, these weekly challenges will help you out. Due to this being the first week of Season 15, the weekly challenges aren’t too hard or grind-inducing, so you should have no problem knocking them all out! Here is every weekly challenge and how to complete them from the week of August 24th-31st.
