Destiny 2 News Roundup – Telesto, Trials Map Vote and Iron Banner Coming Back

Bungie was back this week with their This Week At Bungie Update giving us more info on why Telesto has been acting very strangely this week (plus dishing out free emblems). We’ve had a recent community vote for an upcoming Trials map, and Iron Banner is back next week for our second dose of Eruption this season. All that and more, so let’s get to it.

Without further delay, let’s dive into This Week At Bungie from 10th November 2022.

Winning Trials Map

Attention Guardians, this week’s Trials of Osiris will be on… [drum roll] Cauldron! I personally was hoping for Anomaly (kidding, but I do have fond memories on Anomaly as a self-rez Warlock back in the Destiny 1 days) so get on out there and try and take a trip to the Lighthouse.

One thing to call out if you still are struggling to get your emails, make sure you check out this page here, we have a few tips and tricks that might help, and that way, we can get you in the voting next time!


We are aware that Telesto is acting, well, like Telesto honestly. So, we wanted to give a little tip for the New Lights that may not have heard that when Telesto acts up, we just toss a blanket over it until we can put a more permanent fix in.

Anyway, no puzzles or secrets to be found. Despite what the machine says we are in full control of the situation and there is no need to panic.

Iron Banner

Alright, Guardians, the final Iron Banner of the Season is upon us. Don’t forget to log in next week and finish up your title, or even get that gild!

We do want to call out a quick note from the team: In Eruption, we fixed a bug where defeating a Primed player on a 5+ streak would give extra points for each participant player. While it was interesting, this led to drastic point swings that were a bit too much for our liking. So now it only rewards points to the player that dealt the final blow. We also updated the mode to only show you Iron Banner medals, instead of unintentionally showing you Crucible medals.

Next Week

As we fight to wrestle control of our in-game messages from Telesto, here’s what’s coming up next week in Destiny 2:

  • Stop the Vex incursion in The Glassway Nightfall.
  • Iron Banner: Eruption returns!
  • Shaxx brings Momentum Control to the Crucible along with bonus Crucible Ranks.
  • Raid Rotator: Deep Stone Crypt.
  • Dungeon Rotator: Shattered Throne.

Player Support

Daylight Savings

As of November 6 in the United States, Destiny 2’s daily and weekly reset time has been updated to 9:00 AM PST (UTC –8 or 1700 UTC) due to daylight saving. For more information on ritual resets, please see our Ritual Reset Guide.

Google Stadia

Destiny 2 players whose main characters are from Stadia should set up Cross Save with another platform so they do not lose access to their characters after the Stadia shutdown on January 18, 2023. Additionally, after January 18, players with Google Stadia as their primary account should not deactivate Cross Save for any reason. Doing so will result in players completely losing access to their characters.

For more information, please see our Save Your Stadia Characters article.

Stadia players who encounter issues accessing their characters once they set up Cross Save should see our Stadia Cross Save Troubleshooting Guide.

Ether Tank Radio

We are currently investigating an issue causing players to be unable to receive all Ether Tank radio messages when playing across multiple characters.

As a workaround for this issue, players should continue to complete their Sails of the Shipstealer weekly quest missions on a character that has at least one game of chance remaining from the Spider, and ensure they receive all radio messages on this character before progressing the story mission on another.

Please note that players must return to orbit between every radio interaction.
