Season of Dawn is the 9th Season in Destiny 2.



With the Vex Invasion now defeated, Osiris calls upon you to face a new threat. Stop a council of Cabal Psion Flayers from manipulating time and undoing our victory against the Red Legion.


The Exotic Engram and the Fated Engram have been collapsed into a single new Exotic Engram item, which contains a new Exotic if any remains to be collected; otherwise, it contains a random piece of Exotic armor. Contents are still class-specific.

Escalation Protocol wave 7 chest no longer requires a key to open, and the chest can be opened upon every successful completion of wave 7. Each time opening the chest awards one piece of Escalation Protocol armor for the player's character class until the full set is collected. When the set is acquired, subsequent openings of the chest award random pieces of armor. Decrypted Cache Keys and Rasputin Key Fragments are removed from the game.

Paragon Mod has been removed from the game. The player can decrease their class ability cooldown by raising that class's stat. A Titan's stat is Resilience, a Hunter's stat is Mobility, and a Warlock's class stat is Recovery. The cost of slotting a weapon mod has been reduced from Glimmer1.png5,000 to Glimmer1.png500.

Banshee-44 now offers repeatable bounties to the players. Strike/Crucible/Gambit objectives on the Gunsmith weekly bounty "Field Calibration" are merged into a single objective that shares progress from all sources, but does not reward Valor, Infamy and Vanguard Tactician Tokens.

Lord Shaxx now offers mode-specific daily Crucible bounties. Rusted Lands, The Dead Cliffs, Legion's Gulch, Retribution and Solitude Crucible maps are added to appropriate playlists. Emperor's Respite, Equinox, Firebase Echo and Vostok are removed from Crucible playlists, but remain available for private matches.

The player cannot purchase an item they already unlocked in their collection from the Eververse.

Sparrows can be used on Mercury.


Season 9's artifact is The Lantern of Osiris, which can be leveled to obtain mods.

The central activity of this season is The Sundial. It is a matchmade arena where 6 players fight against waves of Cabal and a few Vex enemies. There is a Legend mode, which makes the activity harder and disables matchmaking. The Sundial's reward is determined by Sundial Obelisks located on 4 destinations: the Tangled Shore, Mars, Nessus and the EDZ. Each Obelisk has certain weapons tied to it, and the player can link Obelisks to The Sundial for the weapons to appear as a possible reward for the player to choose. By leveling the Obelisks and Seasonal Rank, the player can increase the amount of Obelisks that can be linked to The Sundial simultaneously and the amount of reward items the player can take after completing one run of The Sundial. An alternative method of obtaining these weapons is to complete timelost weapon bounties available from the Obelisks.

The players can also to participate in the Empyrean Foundation event, where they donate their Polarized Fractaline to complete the restoration and progress their timelost bounties.

In addition to the Seasonal Artifact mods, this Season introduces Dawn Armor Mods, which revolve around a new buff called "Charged with Light". By installing a mod that Charges the character with Light and fulfilling its Charge conditions, the player obtains stacks of Charged with Light, which are consumed by other mods for certain benefits.

The players were also able to enter the Corridors of Time to solve a secret puzzle which unlocked the Bastion Exotic Fusion Rifle.
