All Week 9 Seasonal Challenges

Destiny 2’s Season of the Witch might have concluded its story, but there are still a few Seasonal Challenges left to release. Each week, Bungie releases a series of time-limited Triumphs that award large sums of XP and Bright Dust when completed. They serve as your main source of Season Pass ranks throughout the season, and they offer thousands of Bright Dust if you’re willing to complete most of them.

This set of Seasonal Challenges is fairly easy, requiring you to farm Lost Sectors, complete Nightfalls, and defeat combatants with certain elemental damage types. We’ll go over how to complete all seven challenges this week, their rewards, and give some tips on how to complete these challenges as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Sol Sorcery

Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted Solar 3.0 Armor Sets

Sol Sorcery: Defeat combatants anywhere in the system with the damage type that matches your subclass. Earn bonus progress from combatants in Haunted Sectors during Festival of the Lost.


This Seasonal Challenge requires you to defeat 1,000 enemies with the damage type that matches your subclass. For example, equipping a Solar subclass would cause all Solar kills to grant progress. Weapon and ability kills both grant progress for this challenge, and enemies slain in Haunted Lost Sectors grant twice as much progress.

As for which subclass to use, it’s mostly down to preference. Solar is a great option since there are ability-centric builds available for all three Solar subclasses. Hunters can use Knock ‘Em Down to spam throwing knives, while Titans can just use the Throwing Hammer melee ability to repeatedly hit enemies with powered melee strikes. Warlocks should use the Sunbracers Exotic to throw a flurry of grenades after landing a melee kill.

Sun And Moon

Destiny 2 Void 3.0 Subclasses

Sun and Moon: Defeat combatants with Void or Solar damage in the Altars of Summoning.


While in the Altars of Summoning activity, defeat 75 enemies with Void or Solar damage. This damage can come from weapons or abilities. We recommend using a Solar subclass and Solar weapons to progress this Seasonal Challenge and Sol Sorcery at the same time. The encounter tier doesn’t matter, so we recommend farming T1 or T2 Altars of Summoning encounters to get this done quickly.

Into The Unknown

Destiny 2 Season Of The Witch Savathun's Spire

Into the Unknown: Complete Lost Sectors on Neptune, in Savathun’s Throne World, or on Europa. Haunted Sectors also grant progress during Festival of the Lost.


Into the Unknown tracks your Lost Sector completions across Neptune, Savathun’s Throne World, and Neptune. Haunted Sectors also grant progress, provided you’re attempting this challenge while Festival of the Lost is active. The API states that you need to clear 100 Lost Sectors, but the actual requirement is far lower.

We recommend farming Moon Lost Sectors to get this done quickly, notably the K1 Revelation Lost Sector. This Lost Sector is fairly short and can be speedrun with a Strand subclass and Eager Edge Sword. Europa Lost Sectors are also an option. If Festival of the Lost is active, farm Haunted Sectors instead, as these award event currencies that you can use to earn Festival of the Lost weapons and Exotic armor pieces.

Ritual Ornament

Destiny 2 Malediction Seasoned Temper Ornament

Ritual Ornament: Acquire any ornament for the Seasonal ritual weapon.


  • 100,000 XP
  • 300 Bright Dust

This Seasonal Challenge is retroactive.

This season’s ritual weapon is Malediction, a 120 RPM Hand Cannon awarded from ritual vendors. This challenge requires you to earn an ornament for Malediction by resetting your rank with a ritual vendor and reaching Rank 16 with them again. Commander Zavala, Lord Shaxx, and the Drifter each offer a unique ornament.

To get this done quickly, we recommend either farming PvP or Vanguard Ops whenever a double reputation week is active. Continue playing in the playlist to build up an Activity Streak, and remember to claim your rewards from the ritual vendor to reset your rank. If you already obtained an ornament for Malediction this season, the RItual Ornament challenge will automatically be completed.

Moon Activities

Destiny 2 K1 Revelation Lost Sector

Moon Activities: On the Moon, earn progress by completing bounties, patrols, public events, and Lost Sectors.


Moon Activities grants progress by activities on the Moon. We recommend farming bounties and Lost Sectors to get this done quickly. Legend, Master, and Haunted variants of the Moon’s Lost Sectors grant progress towards this challenge as well, so we recommend farming those unique variants whenever possible to maximize your rewards. K1 Revelation is the Lost Sector we recommend farming. It’s short, features many enemies to complete Eris Morn’s bounties, and sometimes appears in the Haunted Sectors playlist for Festival of the Lost.

Eyeing Iron

Destiny 2 Iron Banner Point of the Stag and Guiding Sight

Eyeing Iron: Complete Crucible matches. Earn bonus progress in Iron Banner and for victories.


Eyeing Iron does not require you to play Iron Banner to complete it. Simply put, you must complete 15 PvP matches this season. Any matches completed beforehand do not count, although Iron Banner matches and PvP wins will grant bonus progress. We recommend farming the rotating playlist—including the likes of Mayhem, Momentum Control, and Team Scorched—to get this done quickly. If none of those playlists are active, try farming Control.

Darkest Nightfall

Destiny 2 The Arms Dealer Nightfall

Darkest Nightfall: Complete any Nightfall strike on Hero difficulty or higher.


  • 50,000 XP
  • 150 Bright Dust
  • Nightfall Weapon

Darkest Nightfall requires you to complete four Nightfalls. The higher the difficulty, the more progress you’ll make towards this Seasonal Challenge. Experienced players can complete this challenge from a single GM Nightfall, although we recommend most players gravitate towards Hero difficult instead. Hero offers matchmaking and far fewer Champions than higher difficulties, making this challenge far easier.
