Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge Video Guide (Week 5) -- July 23-30

Here's where to find the portal for the Ascendant Challenge and what to do while you're inside to land some Powerful gear.

There's a little more than a month left in the Season of Opulence, which means you've got some time to make the climb up to the new Power level cap of 750 before the launch of Destiny 2's next big expansion, Shadowkeep. There are lots of new avenues to do that, including hunting down new Exotics Bad Juju and Lumina, participating in the new Moments of Triumph, and gearing up for the Solstice of Heroes event that kicks off next week. But as always, one of the most reliable is the weekly Ascendant Challenge in the Dreaming City.

As always, you'll want to start out by grabbing the corresponding bounty from Petra. Once you do, you'll need to use a Tincture of Queensfoil, which provides you with the Ascendance buff for a limited time. This allows you to see the Taken portal you'll need to travel through--but you first have to find it, which the video above will help you do. It's located inside a Lost Sector near the Dreaming City landing zone. Go partway through and you'll find the portal. Inside, you'll have to platform your way to an area with a pair of wizards. Take them out to complete the challenge and the bounty, which rewards you with Powerful gear.

For a more detailed look, check out our Ascendant Challenge Week 5 guide. And if you're still working on The Last Word, the latest Exotic weapon introduced to the Destiny 2 world, grab our guide to make the grind a little easier. We've also got a rundown of The Last Word's story, which is one of the best in the game and continues in the upcoming Season of the Drifter in March.
