How to get Spoils of Conquest - Destiny 2

Learn the best way to farm Spoils of Conquest so you can start buying raid Exotics or getting more loot from raids in Destiny 2.


Spoils of Conquest is a new currency introduced to Destiny 2 with Beyond Light. This brand new currency allows players to purchase raid Exotic weapons from the Monument to Lost Light kiosk in the Tower or extra loot at the end of raids. However, you need quite a lot of them to make a purchase, which inevitably means you’re going to need to start farming.

Spoils of Conquest farm – Destiny 2

Raid Exotic weapons from the Monument to Lost Light in Destiny 2 can be purchased using Spoils of Conquest. For a weapon like Anarchy, players will need 240 Spoils of Conquest. This is quite a lot, especially considering how difficult it is to acquire this new currency. For those that already have all the raid weapons, Spoils of Conquest can be used to purchase more loot drops using chests at the end of raids.

Because both of these require you to have a decent supply, you’re going to want to take the time to farm Spoils of Conquest whenever possible. Thankfully, there are a couple of ways to get Spoils of Conquest:

  • Raid chests
  • Raid encounters

The Last Wish and Garden of Salvation raids reward 3 Spoils of Conquest per encounter. For the Deep Stone Crypt, each encounter rewards 5 Spoils of Conquest, as does Vault of Glass.

In terms of actually farming Spoils of Conquest, arguably the best method is to farm the Templar encounter in the Vault of Glass raid. This encounter can be completed in a few minutes. The main time-sink will be the encounter leading up to the fight. However, if you can get a team together or find someone with the checkpoint, the Templar is easy-farming.

Make sure you get someone to save the Templar checkpoint. To do this, have someone load in on an alternative character, start the encounter, and then wipe. Have the player get back on their main account and run the Templar fight. When you're ready to run it again, the player with the checkpoint should get on said character, load into the raid, and have everyone join them. Once everyone joins, the player should change back to the main character - this preserves the checkpoint.

If you get bored of completing the same encounter, you can always run through the whole raid on a few characters, being sure to collect each of the hidden chests

Getting enough Spoils of Conquest in Destiny 2 to purchase a new raid Exotic weapon (like Anarchy) is going to take quite a bit of time. But with some patience and the right team, you’ll get your gear eventually. Stop by the Shacknews Destiny 2 guide for more farming tips and weapon recommendations.
