Beyond Light has introduced Legend and Master Lost Sectors to Destiny 2. These extremely challenging activities are basically Nightfalls but in Lost Sector format. To get a chance at some new Exotics and rewards, players will need to first unlock the Legend and Master Lost Sectors. These won’t be easy to complete, though, so come prepared for a fight.
How to unlock Legend & Master Lost Sectors
Before you gain access to Legend and Master Lost Sectors, you must first meet a couple of requirements. Once these are met, you will be able to access and start a Legend/Master Lost Sector (more on that below).
- Complete normal version of the Lost Sector
- Reach Power 1200
Firstly, you will need to actually complete the normal Lost Sector. That means going to the patrol zone, entering the Lost Sector, defeating the boss and looting the cache. This will clear the Lost Sector on the map. Here's a guide on the location of all Lost Sectors in Destiny 2, including the new ones on the Cosmodrome and Europa.
Secondly, you must reach at least Power 1200. You should be able to reach this by completing the Beyond Light campaign. If you’ve yet to reach that Power after the campaign, spend some time farming Strikes, completing Public Events, and otherwise working on Milestones. Besides, it’s you’ll no doubt want to try and hit the new max Power in Destiny 2.
With those steps complete, you will now find that Legend and Master Lost Sectors have been unlocked. You can tell which Lost Sector is Legend or Master by looking at the map and finding the unique, purple icon. The Master version has a sword through the shield. Right now, it looks like only the Cosmodrome and Europa have Legend/Master Lost Sectors.
How to start a Legend or Master Lost Sector
With the Legend and Master Lost Sectors unlocked, you will no doubt want to start one. To do this, you must physically go to the Lost Sector and interact with the banner outside its entrance. This will place you in a new instance, where the Lost Sector’s modifiers will be active.
The Legend and Master Lost Sectors have different Power level requirements:
- Legend Lost Sector: 1250 Power
- Master Lost Sector: 1280 Power
There’s a good chance these may be too difficult to attempt early in the season. Consider coming back once you’ve hit a higher Power level. It's also worth noting that the Legend and Master Lost Sectors may be on a random rotation. Each day will have a new Legend and Master Lost Sector for you to attempt. It can be worth waiting to try one you're more comfortable attempting.
Legend & Master Lost Sector rewards
There are a variety of rewards for completing a Legend or Master Lost Sector in Destiny 2. For those that manage to complete it solo (with no fireteam), there’s a good chance at one of the new Exotic armor pieces added with Beyond Light.
To tell which armor piece you’re going to get, look at the Legend or Master Lost Sector icon. It will tell you whether it is an Exotic for the head, chest, arms or legs.
Completing the Legend or Master Lost Sector in a fireteam also has rewards. Anyone that manages to do this has a chance to get Enhancement Cores.
Unlocking the Legend and Master Lost Sectors in Destiny 2 is easy. The real challenge is completing these brutal activities. Those that do manage to beat the odds have a good chance at getting some new Exotics or other valuable rewards. Check out the Shacknews Destiny 2 guide for more tips and answers.
