Destiny 2 Season Of The Splicer: All Week 4 Seasonal Challenges

Guardians are entering the fourth week of Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer. With a new week comes a refreshed set of weekly challenges, refreshed vendor stocks, and a new batch of Seasonal Challenges.

For this week, some of the challenges focus on landing kills with precision weapons and defeating enemies in the Momentum Control playlist. Guardians will want to dust off their favorite Scout Rifle this week to get some of these challenges done. If you want to quickly earn XP or earn heaps of Bright Dust, you’ll want to complete all ten of this week’s challenges. Let’s go over what each challenge requires.

Provocation

Provocation: Speak to the Splicer Servitor and complete Path of the Splicer IV, and defeat Champions anywhere in the system. Bonus progress for Champions defeated in Override or Expunge.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • +150 Decrypted Data

You can start Path of the Splicer IV by speaking to the Splicer Servitor at the H.E.L.M. This will guide you through the second Expunge mission: Styx.

After the quest is complete, you’ll need to defeat 40 Champions anywhere in the system. Since Champions in Override grant bonus progress, we recommend you farm that playlist to finish this challenge. If you can’t kill any Champions, consider farming Legend Lost Sectors instead.

Draconian Protocol

Draconian Protocol: Defeat the Wyvern boss in Override, and defeat powerful Vex anywhere in the system. Bonus progress for Vex defeated in Override or Expunge.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • +150 Decrypted Data
  • Achilles Weaves a Cocoon – Lore

Override’s Wyvern boss is active this week. You’ll need to defeat the Wyvern boss whenever it’s the weekly Override boss, then you’ll need to defeat 200 powerful Vex anywhere in the system.

Powerful Vex are surprisingly rare in Destiny 2. Override has the most abundant supply of tough Vex, although The Glassway strike works as well if you can’t nab any kills in the Override playlist.

Ethereal Splicer II

Ethereal Splicer II: Collect Ether by playing Strikes, Gambit, Crucible, Public Events, and more.

Rewards

  • XP

This challenge is retroactive.

Collect 1,200 Ether to finish this challenge. There’s not much to this challenge besides playing the game. This should passively complete itself. If you want to speed this up, complete the weekly Ether focus listed on your Splicer Gauntlet in the quests tab. You can also upgrade the Ether Filter column on your Splicer Gauntlet at the H.E.L.M. to earn more Ether.

Fusion Rifle Splicer

Fusion Rifle Splicer: In Override or Expunge, defeat combatants with Fusion Rifles. Earn bonus progress by rapidly defeating them.

Rewards

  • XP

This challenge requires you to defeat 150 enemies with Fusion Rifles. This has to be either in Override or Expunge. We recommend Expunge: Styx over Override. Some good Fusion Rifles include Telesto, One Thousand Voices, Plug One.1, and Null Composure.

Trials Of The Tinker

Trials of the Tinker: Unlock artifact mods.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • 150 Bright Dust

This challenge is retroactive.

Unlock 12 Artifact mods to complete this challenge. Artifact mods unlock as you earn XP in Destiny 2. If you’re struggling to unlock these mods, consult our XP farming guide.

Contender’s Delve

Contender’s Delve: Complete a Lost Sector on Legend or higher.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • 150 Bright Dust

Two Lost Sectors are chosen each day to become Legend and Master variants, granting a chance at an Exotic armor piece if you complete them solo. You do not have to complete the Lost Sector solo to complete this challenge. Browse each planet’s map to find out which Lost Sectors are Legend or Master variants for the day.

Precision Calibration

Precision Calibration: Calibrate marksman weapons—Scout Rifles, Sniper Rifles, and Linear Fusion Rifles—by landing precision final blows. Bonus progress against Guardians.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • 150 Bright Dust

To complete this challenge quickly, use Dead Man’s Tale or your favorite Sniper Rifle to land precision final blows in your preferred playlist. If you need rapid kills, the Thrall hallway in the Shattered Throne dungeon and the Shuro Chi encounter in the Last Wish raid are great options.

If Momentum Control is active (which it is at the time of writing), that’s the best playlist you can farm. Bring your favorite Scout Rifle and land as many headshots as possible.

High-Value Hunter

High-Value Hunter: Defeat powerful combatants in Gambit. Earn bonus progress for defeating high-value targets.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • 150 Bright Dust

You must defeat 75 powerful combatants for this challenge. Orange bars in Gambit (majors) grant a point each. High-value targets and the Primeval are worth significant progress. Damaging the Primeval progresses the challenge, so deal as much damage to the Primeval as possible to get this done quickly.

Momentum Crash

Momentum Crash: Defeat Guardians in Momentum Control. Earn bonus progress with Zone Advantage.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • 150 Bright Dust

This challenge is tied to a rotating playlist.

You’ll need to defeat 75 Guardians in Momentum Control to finish this challenge. Momentum Control is a rotating playlist that reduces ability usage and ups the lethality of your guns. If you ever played SWAT in any of the Halo games, Momentum Control is very similar.

Dead Man’s Tale, Jade Rabbit, and most Scout Rifles work great in this playlist. Since Zone Advantage grants bonus progress, stay close to an objective once you have two or more zones captured.

Vanguard Chosen

Vanguard Chosen: Complete any Nightfall strike on Hero difficulty or higher.

Rewards

  • Double XP
  • 150 Bright Dust
  • Nightfall weapon

Vanguard Chosen requires three Nightfall completions. Hero difficulty has matchmaking and minimal modifiers, so that’s the playlist you’ll want to farm if you solely care about getting this challenge done. If you care about farming Nightfall weapons, consider playing on a higher difficulty with a premade fireteam.
