As the Season of the Witch draws to a close, Guardians across the solar system are left to ponder the haunting events that unfolded over the past few months. This season, which delved deep into the lore of the Hive and their sinister magic, proved to be one of the most atmospheric and unsettling chapters in Destiny 2's history.

The Witch Queen's Ominous Presence

At the center of this season's narrative was Savathûn, the Witch Queen of the Hive. Her looming presence and machinations were felt throughout the season, as Guardians raced to uncover her plans and put an end to her twisted schemes. The season introduced a new location, the Dreadnaught, a massive Hive ship that served as a testament to Savathûn's power and cunning.

Eerie Encounters and Chilling Revelations

Season of the Witch brought with it a slew of new activities and missions, each designed to immerse players in the unsettling atmosphere of the Hive's domain. The new Wrathborn Hunts had Guardians tracking down powerful Hive monstrosities, while the Shattered Realm activity sent players on a harrowing journey through a twisted, otherworldly landscape.

As the season progressed, players uncovered chilling revelations about the nature of the Hive's magic and their connection to the Darkness. The lore surrounding Savathûn and her sister Xivu Arath painted a picture of a complex and disturbing family dynamic, adding new depth to the Destiny universe.

Memorable Moments and Triumphs

Season of the Witch was filled with memorable moments and challenging triumphs for Guardians to overcome. The season's exotic quest, which rewarded players with the Ager's Scepter trace rifle, was a particular highlight, sending Guardians on a cryptic scavenger hunt across the solar system.

The season also introduced a new strike, The Hollowed Lair, which had players confronting a powerful Hive wizard in her own domain. The season's armor sets and ornaments, inspired by the aesthetics of the Hive, provided Guardians with a haunting new look to complement the eerie atmosphere.
