Destiny 2 Solstice 2022 brings in new armor, an event-exclusive weapon, and tons of cosmetics for players to unlock later this season.

This guide will dive deep into everything we know about Solstice 2022.

We now also have the complete look at the new armor sets for Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters. For the new Solstice armor, Bungie made it clear that players will need to complete Event Challenges in order to unlock the new armor set, instead of completing keys and opening packages.

Solstice 2022 Seal, Title, and Event Challenges

Earlier this year, in one of Bungie’s weekly blog posts, they revealed that starting with Solstice 2022, every event in Destiny 2 will bring a new Seal and Title for the seasonal event.

Now, we have some more details about what to expect in the new Event Card. First off, the new Event card will be free for all players. This means that even if you don’t own the latest expansion/season (The Witch Queen or Season of the Haunted), you will still be able to complete the base challenges.

How to Access the Event Card in Destiny 2?

There are two ways you can access the new Event Card in Destiny 2. One way is to visit Eva Levante in the Tower Courtyard. The other and quicker way is to simply open your “Quests” tab and you’ll find the Event Card right beside Seasonal Challenges.

What is Included in the Event Card in Destiny 2?

The event card will feature the event challenges, event seals and titles, and all the upgraded rewards that you can get by upgrading your event card. Players will be able to claim the free rewards from the Event Card.

How to upgrade the Event Card in Destiny 2?

Players can upgrade the new Event Card via 1000 Silver for roughly $10. Bungie has confirmed that the overall “value of the upgraded Event Card will vary somewhat but is expected to regularly exceed 3000 Silver”.

Upgrading your Event Card will get you instant access to an Exotic bundle.
