The weekly reset is here and that means there are a host of new challenges for you to do as well as various bounties to collect. One of the most looked-forward to challenges during the week is the Ascendant Challenge, and now that it has arrived, our Destiny 2 Forsaken Week 6 Ascendant Challenge Guide is here to assist you through it.
Destiny 2 Forsaken Week 6 Ascendant Challenge
In order to find Petra Venj, all you need to do is to head down to the “Divalian Mists” landing zone which makes the hassle of going to her a lot less than it was before.
She will be giving you some information as to what is available in the Festival of the Lost, so this is a good time to get the conspiracy theories going.
The Ascendant Challenge itself is a little difficult this time and might end up taking a little bit longer than the last one.
You need to have at least one Tincture of Queensfoil in order to activate the “Ascendant” buff which completes the challenge. Let us go ahead and look at the challenge.
How to Complete
In order to start the challenge, you need to make your way to “Rheasilvia” since the challenge takes place inside the “Cimmerian Garrison”. Once you are out of the cave, do not cross the bridge.
Instead, jump down from the cliff on your right side to the platform below you. Stay right on the wall and you will come upon a Lost Sector known as the “Chamber of Starlight”.
Make your way through the Lost Sector and you will soon be in an expansive room which has 2 snipers towards its backside. You need to avoid these snipers and take them out to make your way to the portal which begins the Ascendant Challenge.
Once you are inside the portal, remember that you only really need to kill the 2 Taken Knights in order to complete this challenge. They are at the end which means that you can avoid many of the enemies in your way if you wish.
Upon entering the Ascendant Portal, you will be transported to the Cimmerian Garrison. The area is pretty much exactly like a gauntlet and if you have a high-enough Power Level; it is possible for you to simply avoid many enemies that you face.
If you do not have a level which is high enough, it is probably best for you to have at least a sniper rifle and a Rocket/Grenade Launcher as the level will require you to use them.
Simply follow the path, remember that 3 knights throughout this level will chase you and you need to stay vigilant at all times. Despite the fact that a fair share of enemies are quite easy, there are more than enough who can take you down.
There is a Lore Item where the 3 knights are visible with their head broken. Do not go right over there and instead head to the left side to find the item.
There are also 3 “Corrupted Eggs” for you to find. One is on your right at the start, the second is after the massive stairs, and the last one is near the final boss if you drop down to the side.
Keep on moving down the path and you will soon come upon a glowing orb. At this orb, you will be going through some floating platforms which will rotate.
For that reason, remember that you should not jump through any of the holes in the platforms. You will come upon a Taken Knight and some Shriekers later on whom you need to kill.
Remember that the Shriekers will keep on respawning so focus on the Knight for the most part.
When you come up to the final area, there will be 2 Taken Knights for you to take down and complete the challenge. You should be comfortable facing these knights by now and taking them down should not be that much of a problem.
Fight them and take them down in order to complete the challenge. Once the challenge has been completed, you will notice that a chest has spawned in the area and it will have the rewards that you are looking for.
