Destiny 2 players who were excited for the return of the Trials of Osiris tournament this weekend are going to want to hold off from jumping into the game’s toughest PvP activity. A new bug is preventing the Trials from dropping its loot, and Bungie says you’ll have to wait until Saturday night to replay the tournament if you want your rewards.
Bungie tweeted Friday that it was investigating a bug that prevented Trials from dishing out its special, Trials-themed loot drops, a bug the GameSpot Trials verified after we ran some matches ourselves. Bungie’s latest update on the situation has a fix, of sorts. The weekly challenges for Trials are going live at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET on Saturdays from here on out, it seems, rather than at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on Fridays with the daily reset.
That means anyone playing Trials today will have to play it again Saturday evening to get their rewards.
UPDATE: Trials of Osiris Weekly Challenges will unlock at 5 PM PDT on Saturdays. Players will have to wait until this time to play through Trials again to earn the rewards from these challenges.
In a future patch, we will move this reset to the Friday daily reset. https://t.co/87RfKFPUJn

The Trials of Osiris is a multiplayer challenge in which teams of three take on intense PvP matches with the goal of winning seven games in a row. As you work through your “Trials card,” which tracks your wins and losses, you get loot rewards at three, five, and seven total wins–so even if you don’t have a “flawless” Trials run, you still get weapons and armor if you manage to chalk up a bunch of wins before you hit three total losses and have to start over.
The bug means the rewards, which are Trials-specific guns and armor, aren’t appearing for players who racked up their wins, which pretty much removes the incentive for diving into the super-tough battles of Trials. From the sounds of things, Bungie can’t retroactively give players the rewards they should have already earned, either–so if you already managed to go flawless in this Trials event, the bad news is, you’ll have to do it again.
We’ll keep updating this story as more information becomes available.
