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.
|Successful Expedition||Obtain Plundered Umbral Energy from bonus chests in Exploration.||Challenger XP, Bright Dust, and Repute|
|Antiquarian I||Return the first relic to the H.E.L.M. Also, defeat combatants on Europa. Defeating combatants with a Fusion Rifle will award bonus progress.||Challenger XP, Bright Dust, and Repute|
|Fire Discipline||Complete Ketchcrash activities and activate cannons aboard the deck of your Ketch.||Challenger XP|
|Shaper I||Shape three unique Seasonal weapons.||Challenger XP|
|Europa Activities||On Europa, earn progress by completing bounties, patrols, public events, and Lost Sectors.||Challenger XP+|

|Flourish of Power||Defeat Guardians in the Mayhem playlist with Super abilities.||Challenger XP+ and Bright Dust|
|The Fallen Fall||Defeat Fallen combatants in Vanguard playlists or strikes. Earn bonus progress for defeating tougher combatants.||Challenger XP+ and Bright Dust|
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.
