In Destiny 2 Lost Sector Guide, we describe the best way to farm exotics as well what is the best way to complete them fast and deal with difficult enemies you may encounter there. Lost sectors are a type of activity with many enemies to defeat and boss an epic fight at the end. Also, they are the only method to farm exotic armor pieces actively. Lost Sectors can be just a fun activity to complete or a great strategy to fill your Exotic armor collection!
Best way to farm Exotics in Destiny 2 Lost Sector
Let’s take a closer look at the best way to farm Lost Sectors and other important information.
Lost Sectors are found in the open world on various planets and are small caves or dungeons which contain mobs in a chest upon completion. There is one Lost Section per day that can scale in difficulty to legendary. Completing the legendary daily Lost Sector solo has the chance to drop exotic armor.
In order to do this, you’ll need to:
- Complete the lost sector on normal first
- Obtain certain power – this is depending on the season, you can find requirements before entering the Lost Sector.
- Know which lost sector is active for the day.
Thankfully there’s a helpful website that I use to see which lost sector is active.
The date, place and reward, the armor slot rotates daily and you’ll have to prioritize getting specific exotics on that day. All my characters are lacking important helm exotics, so when that day arrives I’ll spend most of my game time working on solo lost sectors. Here’s a picture of a current active lost sector:
The Gear and Weapon Requirements
This will take a coordinated build loadout because you’ll need to break specific champion shields, which in this example are barrier and unstoppable.
As you earn experience and gain more available points, you’ll get access to weapon mods that break shields for champions, overload, barrier and unstoppable. Without these mods equipped via your arms, champions will be very difficult or impossible to kill at higher-level content including Lost Sectors.
The picture above shows an overload champion, the icon represents its type of shield along with its name and my weapon is an overload shield breaking via the symbol on it, once I break the shield it stuns the champion which will be vulnerable without generating a shield or refilling their health for a limited time.
Also, you’ll need to equip some type of weapon to break shields or a specific subclass to take advantage of the burn. I have solo builds on my website per class if you need a solid loadout to handle these types of encounters, but just know this, this is the end-game farm to fill in your exotic collections or get the correct stat item roll.
