While not required, preparing for a new season provides an optimal advantage at the beginning of a new season − a head start to the grind. This guide will go over some quick ways to effectively start a new season with a pile of XP, a sufficient amount of materials, and quick knowledge of the upcoming changes that you should expect to see at the launch of the new season.
Season 17 is basically here! In addition to the content outlined on this page to get you set up for the new season, here’s a quick to-do list before the new season starts.
See you in the new season!
Don’t forget − the inventory limit is 63. Keep at least one space free for any new quests that may arrive at the launch of the new Season.

Use a Resource Detector Mod via your Ghost Shell when farming materials in Free Roam!
Did you know? Zooming in with a Sniper Rifle or Scout Rifle allows you to see additional materials at a greater distance so long as you have a Resource Detector Mod equipped on your Ghost Shell!
It is important to note that Guardians can passively level through their Season Pass via Seasonal Challenges and general bounty grind/gameplay over the course of the season! Power leveling is only recommended if you wish to get a head start on your power bonus, or if you just wish to unlock all those rewards early! This is a personal preference!
Bounty Stacking is purchasing a large number of bounties that have generic objectives and can be completed in a single activity. This is the easiest and most efficient way of leveling through your Season Pass as you would be completing bounties at a much quicker rate.
The Devil’s Lair Strike, Cosmodrome
Bounties that can be purchased from vendors and completed in this strike:
Once you pick up your bounties, you can head into the Devil’s Lair strike on the Cosmodrome. Depending on who is with you, you can complete an average of 15-20 bounties in a single strike as most bounties listed above have similar objectives (although you may have to swap weapons/elements/subclasses out periodically).
Again, we do want to note that Bungie has made it so you can get to SR100 by passive gameplay and by completing Seasonal Challenges over the course of the Season. But, if you want to get ahead, the bounty grind is the way to go.
