Solstice of Heroes will run from July 6 to August 3 and it brings new sets of Solstice armour that can be upgraded by completing objectives in the EAZ. Fully upgraded armour has a unique glow based on the subclass. Along with these, players can earn a new Legendary shotgun called Compass Rose, an Exotic ghost shell, and an emblem. The Eververse Store will also sell various items such as a new ship, sparrow, and summer-themed ghost shells.
The EAZ activity will most likely be the same as previous years, where players will race against time to kill as many enemies as possible. At the end of the activity, players need to kill several bosses before the time runs out. Based on the number of bosses killed, chests will spawn across EAZ that will be somewhat hidden on the map. These chests contain Solstice Packages and Solstice Key Fragments. Solstice Packages come with gear and materials and Solstice Key Fragments can be used to earn more Solstice Packages.
During Solstice of Heroes, Destiny 2 also has a daily featured elemental damage type. Killing enemies with abilities of the featured subclass and weapons with the same damage type drops Elemental Orbs that offer certain buffs. These buffs will be available in the EAZ as well as other activities.
