Tuesday has brought us another Destiny reset.

Destiny’s weekly server reset is here, just like every Tuesday. What this essentially means is that you’re going to have a new Nightfall strike to play, Prison of Elders arenas to run, Court of Oryx bosses to defeat, new Sterling Treasures to earn, and more.

See below for the full list:

Weekly Nightfall This week’s strike is The Sunless Cell with modifiers Small Arms, Chaff, Ironclad, and Exposure.

Small Arms grants bonus damage when using primary weapons. Chaff disables your radar. Ironclad increases the number of enemies with shields, and Exposure increase your shield rate but they do not replenish.

Court of Oryx

Tier 3 boss this week is Kagoor. The fight is relatively easy, just focus on the eyes until you can damage the Ogres. Once Ogres have been taken down, you get a few seconds to damage the boss.

Prison of Elders

-Level 32: The Forever Eater

-Level 34: Machine Wrath

Sterling Treasure

Every weekly reset allows you to also get new Sterling Treasure chests. You get one just by visiting the Postmaster at the Tower or the Reef, and two more from playing.

The first can be earned by finishing a full game in the weekly Crucible playlist. The other can be yours when you clear a full Level 41 Prison of Elders run. Many things can be found in these chests, and we’ve listed them all here.

The raid challenge is hosted by Golgorith this week. A good way to beat it is to check out our guide before heading in. Alternatively, you could watch this video.
