For Season of the Witch (S22), the best loadout is:

  • Riptide
  • Ammit AR2
  • The Lament
  • Solar 3.0 Build

This lost sector only throws a small handful of champions but a very large quantity of red bars your way. What that means is that ad clear is the most important factor when tackling the dozens of goblins in each room. An incandescent craftable Ammit will accomplish this goal especially when utilizing the Anti-Barrier Auto Rifle seasonal mod that grants it an intrinsic overcharge.

For higher value targets, a Chill-Clip Riptide and Lament will drop the Anti-Barrier and Overload champions nearly instantly. For added bonus, incorporating radiant into the solar subclass build will only speed up the process. Healing grenades are recommended.

Essential Mods

Make sure to equip these mods for easy runs:

  • Elemental Orbs: Solar
  • Refreshing Pickups
  • Elemental Embrace
  • Ember of Torches (Subclass fragment)

This kit of seasonal mods synergizes with the array of solar weapons, abilities, and damage received all at the same time. Accumulating kills with any solar damage can generate solar elemental orbs, and any orb that you pick up will siphon a large amount of energy back to your abilities. Ember of Torches will grant you a radiant damage bonus, and while having that bonus, you will take far less incoming solar damage from enemies thanks to Elemental Embrace.


Difficulty Legend Master
Recommended Power 1830 1840
Exotic armor (if solo) 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.

Bunker E15 guide

This sector is fairly short. There is not much to worry about besides the large sum of red bar mobs. Make sure to shoot the small cubes connecting to the vex cages throughout the sector to reclaim allies to fight alongside you.

Second, be open to taking more time to ensure all red bars are clear before tackling a champion since the duration of the activity is so small.

Finally, it is important to note that the final boss is fairly beefy compared to other sectors. Lament will mediate this issue with its high total damage and healing capabilities. Furthermore, you can expedite the process by using your solar super for both the boss and Wyvern.

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

Featuring a Void Threat modifier, the Bunker E15 Lost Sector features Void-shielded enemies and Overload and Barrier Champions. Due to its length to complete and difficulty, this is one of the absolute best Lost Sectors to farm.

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.
