By   /   Sep 10, 2014

In Bungie’s Destiny, you’ll often find yourself at a difficult position while trying to beat certain missions. And in case, your character level is a hinderance, you’ll always find Patrol Missions best for XP grinding.

For more help on Destiny, read our Weapons and Weapon Mods, Titan Class and Moon Story Missions Guide.

Destiny Patrol Missions

To do Patrol Missions, go into the Exploration Mode and interact with green glowing beacons. These beacons will then assign you simple quests like assassinating a target.

Defend the Warsat
Locations: Mothyards, Forgotten Shore, Skywatch

This mission starts as a Guardian uses Ghost to make a circle appear around the satellite. You need to stand inside this circle and and protect the Warsat until the number on top of your screen reaches the count of 100.

Note that going out of the circle won’t reset the countdown or fail the mission, but only halt it. Furthermore, having more Guardians inside the circle will make the counter go faster. Throughout the course of the mission, you’ll get attacked by the enemies and must repel them until the counter gets to 100.

Eliminate the Target
Locations: Mothyards, Forgotten Shore, Rocketyard

In this mission, you’ll see an enemy making it to its destination. Your screen will display a countdown timer along with number of checkpoints that the enemy needs to pass. As Guardian, your task is to stop and kill the enemy before it reaches its destination.

Use everything at your disposal and take out this enemy before the timer expires or it reaches its destination. Do note that the enemy will not be a regular one, but a special one with large HP and damage.

Defeat Extraction Crews
Locations: The Steppes, Mothyards, Forgotten Shore

In this mission, a small extraction team of Fallen will drop down to extract the Glimmer on three different drilling sites. While playing as Guardian, you must clear out each drilling site by taking out all Fallen troops. Successfully clearing out all drills’ location will complete this mission.

Destroy Fallen Walker
Locations: The Divide

In this mission, a Fallen Devil Walker will spawn at your position with a running countdown timer of five minutes. Just like in the strike mission, Devil’s Lair, take out the tank to successfully complete this mission. Don’t forget to keep an eye out on the running timer and also note that the tank will only take damage once it’s lights are on.
