Destiny 2 Forsaken Week 1 Ascendant Challenge guide

The Destiny 2 Forsaken Week 1 Ascendant Challenge is now live, offering Guardians the chance to finish off one of The Dreaming City’s weekly bounties and grab some Powerful Gear.

The Ascendant Challenges are a rotation of six different challenges — so that means Week 1 could also be called Week 7, and so on. Got that?

What are you waiting for? Pop a Tincture of Queensfoil and get into it!

Week 1 Ascendant Challenge location

This week’s challenge is located in the Apehlion’s Rest Lost Sector, located in The Strand. Once you’ve popped your Tincture, you’ll find the ascendant portal right above the Lost Sector’s reward chest.

Week 1 Ascendant Challenge combat and walkthrough

As per usual, the Ascendant Challenge itself revolves around getting into the Ascendant Realm and getting through a jumping puzzle before some combat. At the end of the map are blights and crystals, protected by three Knights. Show ’em all who’s boss.

A video from Esoterickk, below, will show you how it’s done.

Week 1 Ascendant Challenge Cheeses
