Destiny 2 Lost Sector Exotics: Armor and Rotation

by | Nov 2, 2022

Legend and Master Lost Sectors are among the best additions Destiny 2 has seen in a while, especially for solo players. Their entire purpose is to challenge and reward the players who manage to complete them solo. And their rewards are good.

Legend and Master Lost Sectors are the only method to actively farm Exotic armor. And on top of that, they can also reward Exotics that cannot be found anywhere else. This guide covers all the exclusive Lost Sector Exotics as well as their rotation system to farm Exotics in general.

Destiny 2 Lost Sectors Exotic: Armor rewards

Checkmark icon V3Updated as of Season of Plunder’s release (S18).

Lost Sectors are the only way to acquire the latest Exotic armor released since Beyond Light (also known as Year 4 of Destiny 2), including all the brand-new Season of the Haunted (S17) Exotics. Each class has 8 Exotic armor pieces that are only available in Legend and Master Lost Sectors (if completed solo):

On top of providing access to exclusive Exotic armor pieces that cannot be found anywhere else, Legend and Master Lost Sectors allow you to farm virtually any Exotic you want. If you’re looking for a specific Exotic for either Titan, Warlock, or Hunter, farming Lost Sectors is the best you can do.

Destiny 2 Exotic armor farming

Before Legend/Master Lost Sectors were introduced, it was nearly impossible to farm Exotic armor in Destiny 2. With so many Exotic weapons and armor pieces available, the RNG to find the armor you wanted was too severe.

Legend and Master Lost Sectors changed the game, as they limit the possible rewards to only one armor slot per day: Helm, arms, chest, legs, and class item.

Lost Sectors Rotation

Since the release of The Witch Queen DLC, there are no longer 2 different Lost Sectors on rotation per day. Nowadays, there is only one Lost Sector on a daily rotation (resets at 9 AM Pacific), which offers both Legend and Master versions to farm.

This is the Season 18 calendar covering all daily Lost Sectors and their rewards (known so far):

Level Requirements

Finally, if you’re interested in farming Legend and Master Lost Sectors, you need to have a proper Power Level (including your Artifact’s bonus Power):

Difficulty Legend Master
Recommended Power Level 1560 1590
Exotic Drop Chance Rare Common

Needless to say, these aren’t easy, and the least you should do is ensure you have a reasonable Power Level. By reasonable, we mean no less than 10 Power Levels below the recommended levels. If you find yourself struggling, work on increasing your Power Level as much as possible and focus on Legend Lost Sectors.

Other than that, it’s all a matter of trial and error until you have an optimized build. But if that sounds too intimidating, you should definitely start by watching the video guides linked above.

    But it’s not really rewarding. If I only had to do it once and prove myself then ya, it’s rewarding. But when I have to put in a dozen or more hours JUST to get to the light requirement, and then farm the lost sector which could itself take a dozen tries, it doesn’t feel rewarding. The only feeling I get is a “finally its over” kinda feeling.
