Destiny 2 Forsaken Week 3 Ascendant Challenge guide


Also known as 'Week 9'. No matter what you call it, here's where to find it and how to do it.

The Destiny 2 Forsaken Week 3 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 3 could also be called Week 9, and so on. Got that?

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

Week 3 Ascendant Challenge location

This week’s challenge is located in the southern part of the map, en route to the Spire of Keres. Once you’ve popped your Tincture, you’ll find the ascendant portal right at the top of a small mountain after a very long run.

Week 3 Ascendant Challenge combat and walkthrough

As per usual, the Ascendant Challenge itself revolves around getting into the Ascendant Realm and getting passing a test of sorts. This week, you’ll spawn on a platform and have to platform all the way up to the top, avoiding Blight bombs or pulses and dodging sniper shots from the Taken. At the top is a boss that you’ll have to dispatch.

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