Destiny 2 Weekly Reset January 9, 2018: This Week’s Nightfall, Flashpoint, Eververse Reset, Raid Order, and More

It’s Tuesday, January 9, 2018, and that means it’s time for the Destiny 2 weekly reset. This week’s reset brings more changes than most, with the end of The Dawning event. Players will be relieved it’s over, and they can take a breather from getting nickeled and dimed by Bungie, at least until the Crimson Days event rolls around to take your sweetheart’s coin purse for Valentine’s Day. It’s back to the regular grind, and you can see when the Destiny 2 weekly reset occurs in the EST and Central time zones, as well as what this week’s Nightfall, Flashpoint, Raid orders and Challenges, Faction Weapons, Eververse items, and Gunsmith Inventory will be.

What Time is the Destiny 2 Weekly Reset in EST and Central Time Zones (and more)?

Apparently, our friends in the Eastern and Central time zones are less chill than West Coast Destiny 2 players because those two are the most searched for. The weekly reset has already occurred, but for future reference, you can usually expect it around noon EST.

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset Nightfall: The Arms Dealer

This week’s Nightfall will be The Arms Dealer. This one isn’t too hard, and you can usually take him out before he gets off the platforms. Just make sure that you take advantage of the Prism multiplier to increase your damage. Make sure to take a good Arc, Solar, and Void weapon so you can keep rotating them out.

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset Arms Dealer Nightfall

Nightfall Challenges:

  • Speed of Dark: Complete the Nightfall with at least five minutes left.
  • Trash the Thresher: Take down a Thresher while in combat with Bracus Zahn.
  • Unbroken: Finish the Nightfall mission with under three deaths.

Nightfall Modifiers:

  • Prism: Elements will rotate throughout the Nightfall. One element will cause increased damage, while one will cause reduced damage. Enemy attacks are not affected by Prism.
  • Timewarp: Killing Time: You can take out enemies to increase the timer. There is a cap on how much time you can add.

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset Flashpoint: EDZ

This week’s Flashpoint is on Earth. It feels like the EDZ gets chosen for Flashpoints more often than the other planets, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The EDZ is a great place to grind and generally more enjoyable than the smaller areas like Io and Titan (not to mention teeny tiny Mercury).

Destiny 2 Weekly Reset Leviathan Raid Challenges

This weeks raid challenges haven’t been revealed yet. When we figure them out, we’ll update the article accordingly.
