Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer is here and it’s time to elevate your fashion game. Along with new weapons, a 6 player activity, armor, story missions, and season pass, the heavily requested armor transmogrification feature is finally arriving. In this season, players will team up with the Fallen Captain Mithrax to stop the Vex from plunging Earth into total darkness. Along with all this new content, players can also experience the Vault of Glass raid for the first time in Destiny 2. The original raid in the base game, Vault of Glass is beloved by many in the community due to its encounter design and loot. Similar to previous Destiny 2 raids, there are also challenges you’ll need to complete if you want the Fatebreaker title.
Here’s how to beat the Conflux encounters “Wait for It…” challenge in the Vault of Glass:
Wait For It… Challenge
Before we get into the challenge just a brief reminder. If you beat Vault of Glass day one and the challenge mode then all of these weekly challenges have already been completed. This is for those who haven’t completed it or are simply looking to nab some extra loot during their raid.
For the Wait for It… Challenge you’ll need to kill every yellow-bar Wyvern as they are sacrificing themselves to the confluxes. This means, you need to not only let these mechanical monstrosities live, but you’ll need to hold off killing them until they reach the conflux and begin to sacrifice. Because of this, having burst damage is absolutely key since you’ll only have around 4-5 seconds before they sacrifice themselves. Avoid weapons like Witherhoard and Anarchy, as the damage over time won’t be enough to kill them before they offer themselves up. The only exception to this is if you are strictly using these grenade launchers to trigger the Breach and Clear mod debuff.
Rocket launchers, shotguns, and sniper rifles are all great choices since these can do a high amount of burst damage. However, I really like Xenophage for this challenge, as it deals a significant amount of damage and combos wonderfully if you run a grenade launcher to debuff the Wyverns. You’ll also want to run burst damage Supers like Chaos Reach, Golden Gun, Thunder Crash, and Blade Barrage. Try your best to coordinate Supers with your partner, so you aren’t both wasting them on a single target.
Truthfully, the trickiest part of this entire challenge isn’t killing the Wyverns in times, it’s all the damage they can cause while alive. Since most teams blow them apart before they even become a threat, allowing a bunch of Wyverns to stop around can cause some pretty big issues. Wyverns hit very hard, because of this you’ll want to try your best to keep in cover and only peek out to deal with the other Goblins and Fanatics. You can also run the Concussive Dampener mod to reduce the splash damage caused by the Wyvern’s attacks. This challenge is all about waiting until you see these Vex enemies begin sacrificing themselves and swiftly dispatching them. It’s not that difficult, you just have to be a bit more careful and make sure you have the damage to kill them within a few seconds.
