Destiny 2’s loot season saw each chapter in the spaceflight story unfold quickly, with just a tiny bit of grinding needed to unlock a new chapter of content. This week is different, as unlocking the final chapter in the hacker-themed season requires defeating not only some of the game’s toughest enemies but a ridiculous number of them at first glance.
The good news is that you won’t have to defeat 50 heroes, because the loot season activities will count each of these deadly bosses as multiple kills. In Expeditions, each hero is worth three kills, and if you’re in a hurry to find out what Eido has been up to this week, you can jump into the Master Ketchcrash activity, which considers each defeated hero worth eight kills.
Master Ketchcrash is also full of heroes, so you will encounter them quite often here. Just remember, matchmaking is turned off for this specific activity, so you’ll need to find a group to play with to help you meet this week’s requirements quickly. Heroes are some of the most challenging enemies in Destiny 2, and they generally come in three forms; Overload, which cannot be stopped, and barrier.
Overload Champions will teleport around you and instantly recover damage, Barrier Champions put on virtually unbreakable armor, and Unstoppable Champions combine bullet sponge attributes with a high damage attack. The only way to disable the hero is to introduce a seasonal mod that allows certain weapons to properly damage them, which can be obtained by upgrading your seasonal artifacts. For loot season, that means you’ll need a machine gun for the barricade heroes, a shotgun for the unstoppable heroes, and a machine gun for the overloaded heroes.
Certain subclass abilities of Arc can also be improved this season to pack an extra punch, and if your main guard is Titan, there’s a solar build that uses dedication to melt heroes into malice.
