Destiny 2 Guide: Ascendant Challenge Week 1 Location Video (August 6-13)

Find out exactly where the Ascendant rift portal is for this week's reset in Destiny 2: Forsaken.

We're back to the beginning of the Ascendant Challenge rotation in Destiny 2. With the Solstice of Heroes in full swing, it's a perfect time to go hunt down those Powerful equipment drops to drive your Power level up to the cap of 750 ahead of the release of the Shadowkeep expansion. With this reset, the six-week Dreaming City cycle resets, so you'll be revisiting the Week 1 challenge for Petra this week. Whether you've done it before or not, you may need some help tracking down the location of the portal and figuring out what to do inside. The video guide above gives you a brief rundown on what to expect and where to go. You can get even more details from our written guide.

Be sure to grab Petra's Ascendant Challenge before starting. You'll need a Tincture of Queensfoil to take part in the activity. With that in hand, head to the Aphelion's Rest Lost Sector and make your way partway through. Use the Tincture to gain the Ascendance buff, and you'll find the portal on a hill in the Lost Sector. Head inside and navigate around to destroy the various blights in the area. Doing so will remove the shields around the crystals in the center of the area. Destroy all of the crystals without letting the knights kill you to complete the bounty and earn some Powerful gear.
