Destiny 2 Solstice Of Heroes 2022 – Start Time, Changes & More!

Destiny 2 Solstice Of Heroes 2022

Solstice of Heroes is being rebranded as “Solstice” for its return in 2022. While there have been numerous leaks regarding the famous Destiny 2 event, nothing has been confirmed about them by Bungie at this time. As such, we will stick to official sources.

All about Solstice 2022

When does Solstice 2022 begin?

The solstice will begin on July 19, 2022.


Players will only upgrade one set of armor for the duration of Solstice. Guardians will be able to get multiple versions of a helmet, but upgrading the armor will allow them to reroll its stats and stat potential. This will then be shared among all the drops. Otherwise, each of the classes will receive new whimsical duds.

  • Titan: Candescent Prism
  • Warlock: Glimmering Prism
  • Hunter: phosphorescent prism



The European aerial zone will be back with the new mode, Bonfire Bash. Guardians will light “paracausal bonfires” and must protect them from enemies. In what appears to be a horde mode, Guardians will be able to traverse the EAZ more easily with additional floating islands and construction barriers having been removed.

Event card

Much like the original Destiny, Destiny 2 is reintroducing Event Cards with Solstice. Inside the card will be a list of objectives to complete during the event. The Event Map will be available for free to all players and will include Event Challenges, Event Seals and Titles, and unique Event Rewards. From everything Bungie has said in the TWAB announcing these changes, it looks like event cards are going to be added to every “holiday” event.

Event Challenges

Event Challenges are objectives that Guardians can complete to earn rewards. This ranges from shaders to emblems and gear to event tickets. Nothing will be time limited so Guardians can go as fast or as slow as they want.

Event seals and titles

There will be new seals that can be earned. Some will be tied to the specific Solstice event while others will be tied to multiple events. The progress of individual seals can be tracked via the event map.

The Multi-Event Seal will require Guardians to complete a certain number of Event Challenges in each of the four annual Destiny Events. It’s similar to how World of Warcraft has achievements tied to holiday events and meeting each one rewards adventurers with extra goodies.

Event Card Rewards

In the event map, there will be an option to upgrade it for 1000 silver. This will immediately grant players a bundle of Exotic rewards. Guardians can then spend Event Tickets to acquire more rewards. Bungie claims the value of the completed event map is north of 3000 Silver.
