The said Dreaming City Weapons, and their respective new perks are as follows - Tigerspite (Frenzy), Twilight Oath (Vorpal Weapon), and Abide the Return (Thresh).

What Players Would Expect in Solstice of Heroes

In Solstice of Heroes, Eva Levante will once again return to the Tower to hand out quests and bounties to the players of Destiny 2. These quests and bounties will reward them bonuses such as a brand new set of Solstice Armor, a new Legendary Shotgun, and a ton of other cosmetic upgrades.

According to, Bungie, the developers of Destiny 2, did not provide any additional details for the Solstice of Heroes, but this year's event will be more likely similar to that of the same event last year.

Players can have their very own Solstice Armor by repairing one that was handed by Eva. They will be spending a remainder of the event repairing it by completing various challenges that is listed on the armor itself.

Aside from the armor, an event-themed Legendary shotgun is up for grabs for the players and it can be earned by playing during the duration of the event.

Another returning activity that will also be part of the Solstice of Heroes is the European Aerial Zone. According to Polygon, players can create online matches into a holiday-only zone, where they can battle as many minibosses as possible before facing the game mode's primary boss.

Afterwards, Guardians will have a small window to collect chests, which contains Solstice Packages and Solstice Key Fragments, scattered around the space. According to, players can also use Solstice Key Fragments to open Solstice Packages to earn in-game rewards.

Destiny 2's Summer of Solstice event will last until August 3rd.
