GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

This week contains seven challenges that require you to dive into seasonal and endgame content. Completing a Grandmaster Nightfall, participating in the Comp Playlist, and crafting weapons are just a few of the things you’ll need to do. Here are all the challenges related to the seventh week of Season of the Haunted seasonal challenge and tips on how to complete them.

Bound Sorrow VII

Bound Sorrow VII: Complete Bound in Sorrow VII and defeat champions in the Derelict Leviathan.

Reward

Bound in Sorrow VII is the final part of this season’s questline. Complete all previous weeks, talk to Eris at HELM, then complete the final stages. Once this is complete, you will need to defeat 40 champions on the Derelict Leviathan. Your best bet is to farm Nightmare Containment. During the first two levels, dropping a Core of Dread – the orbs that minibosses drop – will spawn an Overload Champion and a small group of Scorn. Drop as many orbs as possible between the two levels. If you don’t care about T3 rewards, we recommend re-rolling the activity once you’ve completed T2 Nightmare Containment to speed up this farm.

Cancellation of reconciliation

Canceling reconciliation: Complete “Sever – Reconciliation” using only a Void subclass with Void, Kinetic, or Stasis weapons.

Awards

  • Figures of darkness
  • 25,000 XP

Reconciliation is the second Sever mission introduced this season. You will need to beat this mission with a Void subclass using Void, Kinetic, or Stasis weapons. This should be fairly easy to complete, as Void 3.0 is a powerhouse for all three classes. If you need good Exotics for this mission, Deathbringer and Black Talon are excellent against the final boss. For additions, you can use Graviton Lance or Osteo Striga.

Binding II

Binding II: Throughout Season of the Haunted, bind Nightmares after completing Level III of Nightmare Containment and open Opulent Chests on the Derelict Leviathan.

Reward

This challenge is retroactive.

Similar to the first Linking Challenge from a few weeks ago, this version requires you to link 30 Nightmares at the end of T3 Nightmare Containment and open 15 Opulent Chests. It’s simply a long grind and isn’t difficult at all. Start a Nightmare Containment run, complete the T3 build, bind the Nightmare, then rerun the activity from orbit. If you’re lucky, you’ll join a few matches already in T2 or T3.

For chests, it’s RNG. Just make sure to open as many hidden chests as possible after a T3 run ends. You can use an Expert Tracker mod on your Ghost Shell to make finding these chests easier.

Form of Nightmares II

Form of Nightmares II: Craft any haunted weapon.

Reward

All haunted weapons this season can be crafted in the Enclave. You’ll need to get five Deepsight or “red box” variants before you can craft it. With some Crown of Sorrow upgrades, you’ll still get a Deepsight variant after your first Sever cleanse each week. Complete Sever, Focus an Umbral Engram, and repeat until you have enough Red Box variants.

Remember: only haunted number of weapons; The opulent weapons that have been picked up this season make not count. In other words, you must craft one of the following weapons:

  • fear of fire
  • hollow denial
  • Move in the night
  • Whisper of Nezarec
  • Without remorse
  • tears of contrition

beam cannon

Beam cannon: Defeat targets with tracer guns and shotguns in Gambit. Progression bonus for defeated Guardians.

Awards

  • 50,000 XP
  • 150 luminous dust

Despite the name, you’ll need to get a shotgun and Trace Rifle kills for this challenge. While playing Gambit, you must defeat 60 enemies with shotguns and 100 with trace rifles. Both PvE enemies and Guardians count, with the latter granting more progress.

As for the victims themselves, consider using the following weapons:

  • Lord of Wolves (shotgun): Deals high damage to Majors and HVTs. It is also quite efficient in ammo for a shotgun.
  • Legacy (shotgun): Arguably the best Legendary Shotgun in the game. Any roll will work.
  • Ager’s Scepter (Trace Rifle): A kill will freeze everyone nearby, allowing you to smash them for massive damage. This is the best tracer gun you can use.
  • Prometheus Lens (Trace Rifle): A solid alternative to Ager’s Scepter.
  • Traced Path (Trace Rifle): A non-exotic trace rifle that can roll with Subsistence and Golden Tricorn.

Fleeting Glory

Ephemeral Glory: Complete Crucible matches in the Glory Rank playlist. Earn progress bonuses for victories.

Awards

  • 100,000 XP
  • 300 bright dust

Survival is the Glory Rank playlist that this seasonal challenge refers to. Unlike other PvP modes, Survival uses skill-based matchmaking (otherwise known as SBMM) and uses a ranking system that tracks wins and losses. For those who have never played Survival before, this is a 3v3 mode where your team has a set number of lives. When your lives run out, death becomes permanent. Eliminating the enemy team wins the round. Win four rounds to claim victory.

At worst, you’ll need to complete eight games to complete this challenge. If you win all the matches, it will only take five matches. Competing is incredibly tough if you’re not a good PvP player, so here are some tips:

  • Play your life: Suppose you have a life, even if you don’t. Don’t engage in a firefight unless you have the advantage.
  • Stay with your team: With the current meta, team shooting is more important than ever. Lane with your team and try to shoot with them.
  • Use your Super: When you get your Super, use it. A single Super can tip the hand in your favor. Don’t take your Super into orbit.

Grand Master

Grand Master : Complete any Nightfall attack on Grandmaster.

Awards

  • 100,000 XP
  • 300 bright dust

Grandmaster Nightfalls is now available for the remainder of the season, requiring you to be 1,585 power or higher to enter. GM Nightfalls contains dozens of champions, usually all types of shields with Match Game active, and you will have to fight enemies that have 25 powers above you. Staying alive is key, as is the synergy of your kit with your team. Spec for 100 Resilience, use as many DR mods on your chest as possible, and try to build around one of three things: add-clear, Champion/boss DPS, or utility.


  • Hunters work best as Nightstalkers, providing invisibility to their team. Use Aeon Swift to give your team some heavy ammo on Champion finishers, or use Omnioculus to give your team much-needed DR.
  • Warlocks can use Dawnblade to play as supports, healing allies while granting Radiant. Alternatively, Shadebinder is arguably the best crowd control spec in the game. Use Osmiomancy’s gloves and spam Coldsnaps to your heart’s content.
  • Titans can use Sentinel to provide overshields and defensive buffs through their Supers. Sunbreaker is also great when paired with Loreley Splendor, making you extremely tanky.
