Eliksni Quarter community event guide - Destiny 2

Everything you need to know about the Eliksni Quarter community event during Season of Plunder from the Rising Tide quest to earning Captain's Coins.


The Eliksni Quarter community event has kicked off in Destiny 2. As the final big event in Season of Plunder, this tasks players with collecting Captain’s Coins from activities and donating them via a chest in the Tower. There are personal rewards to unlock and community milestones. The goal is to raise enough funds to revamp the Eliksni Quarter.

How to get Captain’s Coins

In terms of getting Captain’s Coins, they are awarded for completing a variety of activities. Each activity will reward slightly different values. The best way to farm Captain’s Coins is to speedrun Lost Sectors. The Widow’s Walk Lost Sector in the EDZ can be completed in a matter of seconds, earning players about 14 coins per completion.

A post by Bachmanetti on the Raid Secrets subreddit has collated the various activities and the quantity of Captain’s Coins that are earned.

Captain's Coins per activity
Activity Captain's Coins
Destination chests 3
Public Events 7
Heroic Public Events 10
Lost Sectors 14
Strikes 25
Gambit 35
Crucible 35
Dares of Eternity 35 - 56
Ketchcrash 50
Expedition 50
King's Fall 340
Eliksni Quarter Gift Box 1,000

As mentioned above, farming Lost Sectors is the way to go. However, before you do this, make sure you complete all of your weeklies and challenges, as those activities will help you in other areas too.

How to donate Captain’s Coins

Captain’s Coins can be donated at the chest in the Tower. Load into the main area of the Tower and look for the chest right in the middle. It’s where Eva Levante usually stands during other seasonal events.

Interact with the Donations Chest and select the button under Donate Captain’s Coins. This will donate every single coin you have.
