Destiny 2’s Season of Plunder has begun, and with it comes a slate of seasonal challenges for players to complete. These challenges typically serve a variety of purposes like ranking up the seasonal vendor or bestowing bundles of experience to help players max out their season pass. Season of Plunder is no different, and each challenge has been given a feisty pirate theme to keep with the seasonal motif. Here are all the seasonal challenges for Destiny 2: Season of Plunder.

Both Successful Expedition and Antiquarian I should be the primary focus for players just diving into the Season of Plunder, as the Repute currency is necessary for upgrading the Strachart vendor in the H.E.L.M. The one other challenge players should check off is Flourish of Power, as the Mayhem Crucible playlist isn’t always available.
