I know how accomplished you are at exacting revenge.

Season of the Hunt was the twelfth season of Destiny 2 and the flagship season of Beyond Light, occurring from November 10th, 2020 until February 9th, 2021. It kicked off the launch of the expansion and began its first seasonal launch on November 17th, 2020.

In the aftermath of the arrival of the Black Fleet and the on-going fight against the House of Salvation on Europa, the Hive god Xivu Arath makes her move upon the Sol System and sends her High Celebrant to raise an army of Wrathborn in the Reef. Now Guardians must hunt down the Wrathborn and kill the High Celebrant with the aid of Osiris, The Spider and a renegade Lightbearer known only as The Crow.


Story: Rise Of A Hive God

"Entire planets have vanished. In the chaos that follows, Xivu Arath, the Hive God of War boldly moves to seize power. If left unchecked, she threatens a solar system already in turmoil. While investigating the growing threat, Osiris finds himself in need of help. Fortunately, a new – and yet familiar – ally known as the Crow joins you in the rescue..."

Activities: The Hunt Begins

"Hive shrines are appearing throughout the system. The Spider has felt the effect of this disturbance and wants to strike a bargain. Work with him and the Crow to build a device that will draw Xivu Arath's lieutenants out of hiding. Once constructed, upgrade your Lure, snare your prey, and challenge the Hive god."

Exotics & Gear: Bare Your Fangs

"Exotic Quest: Hawkmoon
Let loose thy talons upon the Darkness. Hawkmoon returns and your quest begins

"Seasonal Artifact: Fang of Xivu Arath
Pulled from the jaws of a Hive God, the Fang of Xivu Arath increases your Power every time it's upgraded. Unlock new Seasonal mods and choose new ways to customize your playstyle.

"Exotic Shotgun: Duality
Calmly aim down the sights or fire wildly from the hip. Unlock the true potential of this new Exotic Shotgun by embracing its duality.

Rewards: Season Pass

"Gear, XP, rewards! Get the Season Pass and instantly unlock the new Seasonal armor set and new Exotic Shotgun, Duality. You also get an XP boost that speeds up your Seasonal ranks and engram unlocks."[1]


Guardians use Crow's device, known as the Cryptolith Lure, to draw out Fallen and Hive corrupted by Xivu Arath into an army known as Wrathborn. They use the lures to draw out Wrathborn, hunt them to their lairs, and kill powerful Wrathborn that are summoned after their death.
