What are Destiny 2 Challenges?

Challenges are short and easy tasks that you undertake as part of Flashpoint or Milestone Content. They are simply more things to do for you in the sectors. Some of the challenges are so simple that you will not even notice them being completed. They are excellent if you do not have much time and want to just get a taste of Destiny 2 for a short time.

Each Public Sector in all worlds of Destiny 2 has exclusive missions for you to complete. Even Crucible mode has some extra challenges for you to test out your mettle. Most of the time five missions could be active and they will randomize each time. They are in not anyway necessary to complete, they just add more variety to your visit to the specific sector.

We have listed all the possible challenges in each of the sector of the four worlds in Destiny 2 along with Crucible specific challenges. The challenges are categorized into three main sections for the sectors. For Crucible and Strike Missions, they are different. You will find all the possible challenges below:
