Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted Resilience changes explained
With Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted, Bungie has made several fundamental changes to its live service game. From buffing and nerfing weapons to tweaking various aspects of Crucible, there are plenty of changes - good and bad - that change how Destiny 2 works.

While Bungie listed most of these changes in its version 4.1.0 patch notes, there are some changes that players are discovering while playing through Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted. One of the most crucial changes is to the Resilience attribute. Here's everything we know about the Resilience buff in Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted and how it changes the game.

If you didn't know, the Resilience attribute in Destiny 2 represents the amount of damage you can take before dying. The higher the Resilience, the more damage your character can sustain. Interestingly, for Season of the Haunted, Bungie has quietly overhauled the Resilience attribute to make it more effective.

Below is the new overhauled damage reduction Resilience chart in Destiny 2 for every Tier.

Tier 

Damage Reduced

1

1%

2%

6

14%

7

20%

26%

9

32%

10

40%

As evident, if you upgrade your Resilience to Tier 10, you will have a 40% damage reduction, which is frankly a lot by Destiny's standard.

The new Resilience buff would help you survive longer when battling yellow bar and champion enemies in Nightfall and Grand Master Strikes, Dungeons, Legendary Lost Sectors, and other high-tier activities. It could make solo runs through these activities less infuriating. Upgrading Resilience to Tier 10 should also help you in Crucibles and Gambits.

Bungie may eventually nerf Resilience, but at the time of this writing, upgrading it (at least to Tier 6) seems like a must, especially if you plan to do most high-end activities solo. Perhaps Bungie will have more to say on this matter on its next TWAB, and if, we will update this article accordingly.
