The Destiny 2 Moments of triumph 2020 event is now underway. Completing certain triumphs will unlock cosmetics and Bungie Store rewards, and completing 28 of them will unlock the MMXX seal. Most of the triumphs themselves are pretty self-explanatory, but some of them are secret triumphs tied to the upcoming Solstice of Heroes event, which is where things can get messy. 

Below, we've outlined all the triumphs, how to clear them, and what they get you (if anything). You can check your triumph progress in the MMXX seal tab under the triumphs tab of the main menu. Note that anyone, including New Light players, can clear triumphs. However, most of them require the Shadowkeep expansion and/or the Season of Arrivals season pass. Some, like triumph Master, will also be exceedingly difficult, if not outright impossible, for new players to complete before the event ends on November 10. Fortunately, you only need to complete 28 of the 30 available triumphs to unlock the MMXX seal.

Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph 2020 secret triumphs 

In addition to these triumphs, there are three secret triumphs which cannot currently be completed. Based on previous years' events, these triumphs will be tied to the Solstice of Heroes event coming later this season. According to the latest Season of Arrivals roadmap, Solstice of Heroes will start on August 11 and run through September 8, so you'll have about a month to knock out these triumphs - and whatever else the event offers. Based on last year's secret triumphs, they shouldn't be too difficult to complete. They probably involve upgrading and masterworking Solstice armor, which usually isn't that hard to do.
