Every Single War Table Upgrade in Destiny 2

War Table Destiny 2

The War Table is a brand new…thing(?) added to Destiny 2 with the brand new Season of the Chosen. The War Table is the seasonal upgrade area where you can increase your rank by completing certain seasonal challenges in Season of the Chosen in order to gain more perks and enhancements. I actually think that the War Table is by far the best iteration of this whole seasonal upgrade model, although one thing I’m not the biggest fan of is the fact that it’s time-gated. Yep, you can only earn a total of 3 War Table upgrades per week as the reputation is tied to 3 weekly seasonal challenges. Other than the fact that it’s time-gated, I love it; it’s got cool new mods, a new emblem to unlock at Rank 11 and a new ship to unlock at Rank 22. So let’s take a look at all of the War Table upgrades in Destiny 2!

There’s every War Table upgrade available in Destiny 2, but with a limit of 3 upgrades per week, which should you go for first? Well, initially, you’ll have to grab some of the Enhancement I upgrades as Enhancement II and III have prerequisite requirements. That being said, the upgrades that I have chosen for the first two weeks of the season are: Proving Rune I, Challenger Medallion I, Red Legion Chest I, Tribute Chest I, Proving Rune II, and Proving Rune III. My goal has been to obtain as many Hammer Charges as possible as fast as possible. Now, have I been upgrading this properly so far? Probably not, but it’s really up to you how you want to upgrade your War Table.

So far, I’m having a lot of fun with Season of the Chosen; it’s been much better than Season of the Hunt and the brand new War Table and the new H.E.L.M. location are definitely some of the best additions that have been introduced into Destiny 2 in quite some time. The only thing I dislike about it is that it’s time-gated. Oh well, I guess it gives us something to do every week….right?
