Destiny 2 Weapon Changes Season 10
Bungie: Destiny 2

The season of Dawn is about to end in Destiny 2. And after that, we’ll be getting a brand-new season i.e. season 10 that has been leaked prior to the official reveal. At this point, we already know that Trials of Osiris is coming back in Destiny 2 and the Empyrean Restoration effort is going strong as well. Speaking of season 10, we have a bunch of weapon changes coming with the next sandbox update in Destiny 2.
