Seasons were introduced in Destiny 2 Year Two and the Forsaken expansion. They were then revamped in Beyond Light with the inclusion of a Season Pass that allowed Guardians to wear down ranks and earn season-exclusive gear and more. But every season had its ups and downs. So they stack up against each other.

13th Season of the Worthy
Season of the Worthy, while centered on the warmind Rasputin tracking the Darkness’ encroachment into the solar system, has been the slowest and least enjoyable season yet. An overly complicated activity, a buggy drop-off point in the EDZ, and a live event that lasted far too long for what it actually was meant this was going to be more of a season of disappointment.
12th season of the outlaw
Season of the Outlaw was actually the base game for the Forsaken expansion. As such, nothing about it is truly unique like the other seasons. If Season of the Worthy hadn’t been so disastrously bad, Season of the Outlaw would have finished last for technical reasons.
11th Season of the Hunt
Season of the Hunt coincided with the release of Beyond Light. In his first appearance as a Guardian, Crow ran Guardians while employed by Spider. Guardians were tasked with rebuilding the Cryptolith Lure and hunting down Xivu Arath’s forces. Unfortunately, this season was overshadowed by the main expansion.
10th Season of the Immortals
Season of the Undying transformed Seasons into much more when Season Passes were introduced. Guardians were forced to separate Shadowkeep’s content from Season of the Undying. Not going very well with the Haunted Moon theme were Ancient and Leafy Vex. While the new activity was fun the first few times, Guardians quickly realized just how much of a grind it was actually going to be.
Season 9 of the Drifter (Joker’s Wild)
Season of the Drifter saw Gambit evolve into Gambit Prime. Unique roles were added and the reckoning lived up to its name. What ultimately turned out to be a failed experiment showed that Bungie was at least willing to try new things.
8th Season of the Forge
Season of the Forge spawned the beloved Exo Ada-1 and its Black Armory. Guardians were thrust into a fun seasonal event that felt like a refined version of Mars’ escalation protocol. A bevy of themed weapons and armor have been added to the loot pool, and players have been begging for their return since the Sunsetting debacle.
7th Season of the Chosen
In a move many didn’t see coming, Bungie began forming shaky alliances between the Vanguard and one of humanity’s most fiercely contested enemies, the Cabal. Serving under Empress Caiatl, the Cabal stood ready to subdue the Vanguard until Zavala refused to bend the knee. This led to Wardens taking up the gavel to prove our worth.

6th Season of the Splicer
Season of the Splicer picked up the beat of Season of the Chosen and saw the Vanguard form another unlikely alliance with the Eliksni of House Light. In a season heavily inspired by synth-wave, Guardians have been thrust into the collective mind of the Vex to thwart yet another of their devious plans. The narrative beats saw a collective healing between enemies as the Eliksni and humanity came together.
5. Arrival time
The Darkness has arrived and wants to send a rallying call to the Warden. As interpreter, Eris Morn guides Wächter through the weekly interference mission and the Contact Public Event. This season was the shot in the arm for Destiny, kickstarting the battle between light and dark.
4th season of dawn
What is a Warden to do when his best friend and legendary warrior meets an untimely end? Why go back in time and find it of course! Is it a bad thing that the Warden saw his own grave in the myriad timelines? Who knows? This season, Guardians worked together to solve a pretty complicated mystery, and it really was one of those “you had to be there” moments.
3rd Season of Opulence
Emperor Calus has invited Guardians aboard his ship, the Leviathan. He wants to test their courage and turn them into agents. The Menagerie was a matchmade dungeon with all sorts of activities that allowed Guardians to hunt specific loot. Of all that was hijacked in the Destiny Content Vault, this was by far the most egregious removal.
Season 2 of the Risen
Season of the Risen incorporates some missions into The Witch Queen expansion. Guardians must work with their new cabal allies to find out what the Lucent Brood is up to. Storytelling remains top-notch as the fates of several key NPCs are changed forever.
1st Season of the Lost
Season of the Lost has enacted the events of Destiny 2’s best expansion, The Witch Queen. After the shocking revelation that Osiris was played by Savathun the whole time, and that Guardians were actively working with the Queen of the Reef to eliminate the Hive Queen Worm, suffice it to say it will be difficult for Bungie to top it .
