Destiny 2’s new season 17 Trials of Osiris
Destiny 2 is just a few hours away from hosting the first sets of Trials of Osiris in the newly released Season 17. The 3v3 competitive PvP game mode will be back each weekend starting June 10th, as Saint-14 will be providing some new weapons by replacing the old ones given. Players can expect the power advantage to be active once more during a Trials match, unlike the Iron Banner mode.
The Trials of Osiris has definitely seen some controversies since it was implemented in Destiny 2. From matchmaking pools not being equal in skill to balancing skills and loadouts, Bungie has been tweaking the system a lot to bring more to the competitive aspect of this game mode.
Nevertheless, since it is still the early days of Season 17, the introduction of new game modes also presents new weapons and opportunities. Today we will break down additional details on two of the new upcoming weapons which are confirmed in Trials of Osiris. These are the Forgiveness Sidearm and Burden of Guilt Fusion Rifle.
Players normally look for replacements sooner or later after the vaulting of extremely powerful weapons comes imminently, such as fan favorites Shayura’s Wrath and Igneous Hammer. Thankfully, Bungie will be bringing in two weapons, both of which will be available to be acquired on Saint-14’s inventory.
Players need to stack up streaks by playing Trials of Osiris matches and gathering reputation boosts by winning them. Each innate rank up grants players a Trials engram, which can then be used to collect any Trials of Osiris gear from Saint-14.

First we have the Forgiveness Legendary Sidearm:
The Legendary Forgiveness Sidearm is the newest addition to the Trials loot pool in Season 17. It is focused to be an aggressive burst framed weapon while dealing Arc damage at roughly 325 RPM (quite high). As always, being an Arc weapon makes it way more valuable, as Season 18 is scheduled to release an overall rework of the Arc subclass.
With the ongoing strong Barrier Champion mods being tied to Sidearms, players will need as many options as possible to receive this. The perks that can be found in the Forgiveness Sidearm are the following:
-First column: Demolitionist, Air Assault, Subsistence, Killing Wind, Well Rounded, and Moving Target
-Second column: Rapid Hit, Harmony, Multi kill-Clip, Vorpal Weapon, Fragile Focus, and Adrenaline Junkie
As always Demolitionist and Adrenaline Junkie are the most sought after.
Lastly we have the Burden of Guilt Legendary Fusion Rifle:
Burden of Guilt is an exciting kinetic adaptive framed stasis fusion rifle, which fires with 660 Charge Time (usual compared to other weapons).
Being a Stasis weapon it has the possibility to receive unique perks such as Chill Clip. Nevertheless, the weapon itself does hold some deadly perks that could become meta like other Fusion Rifles specially in PvP game modes. The perks that can appear with the Burden of Guilt Fusion Rifle are the following:
-First column: Elemental Capacitor, Killing Wind, Perpetual Motion, Steady Hands, Stats for All, and Well Rounded
-Second column: Harmony, High Impact Reserves, Chill Clip, Swashbuckler, Vorpal Weapon, and Successful Warmup
For the best PvP results , players usually go for perks such as Perpetual Motion and Successful Warmup, while having Stats for All and Chill Clip are way better for PvE.
Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris will also include armor sets for all three classes and an unnamed Ghost Shell. This will bring a breath of fresh air to the game, after the recent controversies regarding matchmaking balance.
