Destiny 2 Season Of The Lost: Seasonal Challenges Guide (Week 10)

Here's how challenges work and what's asked of you during Destiny 2's Season of the Lost.

6 Comments

Only a handful of challenges have been added to the Destiny 2 quest tab this week, now that the Wayfinder's Voyage storyline has wrapped up. An easy selection of tasks, a few runs in Astral Alignment, and a journey into the Ascendant Realms with the right gear equipped should see most of these objectives completed quickly and smoothly.

Like previous weeks, you won't have to complete every objective within seven days as Destiny 2 stacks new seasonal challenges on top of older ones. The advantage to this system is that it not only allows you to prioritize the tasks you deem most important, but you can sometimes complete multiple challenges at the same time.

Season of the Lost Weekly Challenges – Week 1

Week 1's challenges are focused on starting the new Wayfinder's Voyage quest through the Astral Alignment activity, gathering Parallax Trajectory, and taking part in weekly playlist challenges.

Season of the Lost Weekly Challenges – Week 4

This week's challenges will likely see you spending some time in the Tangled Shore, a location infested with Scorn. Besides encountering them in Sorik's Cut and Thieves' Landing, the Kingship Dock lost sector and The Hollowed Lair strike are also solid locations for quickly earning Scorn kills for the Wayfinders Voyage IV challenge. Astral Authority tasks you with grabbing Trace Rifle kills, and by now you should have at least one of the rare Exotics in your collection.

If you haven't acquired one yet, you'll either need to hope that one drops as an Exotic engram, is available from Xur when he visits every weekend, or spend a hard-earned Exotic Cipher at the Monument to Lost Lights in the Tower. Alternatively, you can take part in a Shadowkeep quest to unlock the trace rifle Divinity, if you're up for taking part in the Garden of Salvation raid.

The quickest way to get a Trace Rifle--or at least a new one--this week, may be to take part in the Ager's Scepter quest that has just gone live. We'll update this post with a guide on how to obtain the latest Exotic soon.

For this week, there are only seven objectives to focus on. Wayfinder's Voyage enters a new phase, with the primary objective of this seasonal quest being a Taken hunt. For the Taken part of this quest, you can easily farm them in the EDZ's Cavern of Souls lost sector, or you can run through the Lake of Shadows strike. At this point, you should have several bows in your arsenal, and there's even a few Exotic variants to equip if you've been collecting them such as Leviathan's Breath, Ticuu's Divination, and Wish-Ender.

How Do Seasonal Challenges Work?

You can access Seasonal Challenges from the Quests tab, where they can find tasks such as eliminating Scorn with grenade launchers, farming for Parallax Trajectory, and uncovering Ley Line secrets during this season's quest. Completing a challenge always rewards you with a significant amount of XP, and other tasks include bright dust, emblems, and weapons. Each challenge can be completed once per account, and each week will usually add around 10 new challenges which will be active for the duration of the season.

If you arrive late to the seasonal party, the good news is that there'll still be time to wrap up any lingering tasks before the next season begins, usually from week 10 onwards during a season. Completing Season of the Lost's challenges will fulfill the requirements for the Master of All seasonal challenge, which in turn will net you a large Bright Dust reward that can be spent in the Eververse store on select cosmetics, emotes, and items.
