Recommended loadout

Loadout recommendations are more versatile than ever. There are now more methods to handle Champions. Match game is gone. There are now two active Surges at any given time.

When it comes to loadouts, we offer two alternatives. One loadout for when Void is the weekly Surge, and another one for when Solar is the active Surge. To find out which is the active Surge of the week, you simply need to open the activity screen.

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.

Bunker E15 guide

What makes Bunker E15 one of the easiest Lost Sectors in Destiny are all of the AI allies you’ll find within. Once you free them from their prisons, you can walk away, and they’ll finish Bunker E15 for you.

When you first enter the Lost Sector, you’re greeted by Fallen and an Overload Captain. Once you kill them, you won’t have to fight again (if you prefer). The Vex will take care of the rest of the Lost Sector. The middle of the Lost Sector is the longest section and where most of the enemies are. Take it at your own pace, and you’ll be fine.

Bunker E15, Destiny 2

In the final boss room, you’ll spawn an Overload Champion every 30% of the boss’s health bar. That means if you kill the boss and open the rewards chest fast enough, you’ll still get a Platinum ranking. You just need to kill every Champion alive before opening the chest. This Lost Sector is the best for beginners new to the activity or players just starting Destiny 2.

Lost Sector Rewards

As a reminder, completing Legend or Master Lost Sectors solo is the only way to acquire several specific Exotic armor pieces. While our Lost Sector Exotics guide covers them all, including their rotation for the remainder of the season, these are all Lost Sector Exotics available today:

Bunker E15 Summary

If this guide had too much information, those are the main highlights you need to remember. Hopefully, you now have everything you need to know how to best clear this Lost Sector to farm exactly the type of Exotic armor you need.
