Zero to One Hundred challenge in Destiny 2

Learn how to complete the Zero to One Hundred challenge in the Garden of Salvation raid in Destiny 2.


The Zero to One Hundred challenge in Destiny 2 is unique to the Garden of Salvation raid. This challenge tasks players with completing a rather difficult procedure during the Sanctified Mind fight. You will need a skilled team of Guardians, and clear communication, if you’re going to pull of Zero to One Hundred without a hitch.

To complete the Zero to One Hundred challenge: fill up a bank with 30 motes in 10 seconds. As soon as you put in motes, you’ve got only a few seconds to get the rest in else the challenge fails. You do not need to fill up both banks at the same time. While it is simple to understand, it’s difficult to execute. Obviously, make sure your team is familiar with the Sanctified Mind fight.

All 30 motes have to be deposited into the bank within 10 seconds in order to avoid failing the Zero to One Hundred challenge.

The best way to complete Zero to One Hundred is by doing the following steps:

  1. Send two players through to kill enemies and collect motes. They should collect 7 each, defeat the enemies, and leave the remaining motes on the ground.
  2. As you bring the two players back, send one player through. They should collect 10 motes, defeat enemies, and come back.
  3. Send the first two players through to collect their remaining motes and then bring them back. 

The reason you would use this method is that it gives you some wiggle room for timing. You aren't relying on a player running from the spawn point to the portal before it closes. It also gives you some headroom in case a mote is missed. The mote timer will also refresh when a mote is picked up, meaning everyone should have roughly the same time remaining.

It's also a good idea to do both sides at once. For instance, send two players through to each side, and then one player through to each side. This allows you to avoid a sticky situation where there are shielded enemies but no Enlightened players.

In terms of completing the Zero to One Hundred challenge, it only completes once the boss dies. If at any point it takes longer than 10 seconds to fill a bank to 30 motes, the challenge will fail. An on-screen message will state as such. If the challenge fails, you will need to reset the encounter.

The Zero to One Hundred challenge is probably one of the more difficult raid challenges in Destiny 2. It requires a lot of speed, skill, and a bit of luck with motes. For more raid guides, check out the Shacknews Destiny 2 complete strategy guide.
