Destiny 2 May 3 Weekly Reset: Nightfall, Activities, and More

Here's what to expect this week in Destiny 2.

by Diego Perez


It’s a new week in Destiny 2, and the May 3 weekly reset brings a new Nightfall, new weekly activities, and much more. Destiny 2 weekly resets arrive every Tuesday at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET. Veteran Destiny players know the importance of getting in early after a reset so they can clear out the weekly chores before moving on to other grinding and quests. With the Guardian Games ongoing as well, it’s in your best interest to get the weekly stuff out of the way so you can start working on that. There’s a lot to do this week, so let’s get into it.
