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. This is the second week of Season 15 of Destiny 2 and things are beginning to ramp up with Iron Banner being back on the menu. While these challenges aren’t too hard, you’ll definitely want to work on completing them to further upgrade your Wayfinders Compass. Here is every weekly challenge and how to complete them from the week of August 24th to September 7th.
