Bunker E15 D2 Recommended loadout

Rank: ✅ A Tier: Good Lost Sector to farm 👍

Bunker E15 has Barrier and Overload Champions; therefore, we recommend this Solar loadout:

  • Kinetic Slot: Arbalest or Forerunner (with the Anti-Barrier Sidearm mod) to deal with Barrier Champions
  • Energy Slot: Adhortative with Overload Pulse Rifle for Overload Champions, but any Solar Auto or Pulse Rifle can work.
  • Heavy Slot: Apex Predator to take advantage of Solar Surge and the Overload Rocket Launcher mod, but any high-damage heavy weapon will work.
  • Build: Solar

Subclasses and Exotic

Due to the Solar Surge, we prefer Solar 3.0 builds. Hunters should use a Healing Grenade setup with Ember of Empyrean and Celestial Nighthawk for very high damage.

Warlocks should use Sunbracers with Touch of Flame and Heat Rises to have constant Restoration and excellent ad clear. 

Titans should use our Undying Flame build with Synthoceps for good survivability and high damage.

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 Destiny 2 Legend guide

Once you spawn in, stay on the high ground in the tunnel and take out the Vandals before focusing on the Overload Champion. Feel free to use some Special Ammo to kill him quicker, or you can kill him with your primary weapon.

Bunker E15 Lost Sector 1

Push into the next area and destroy the Vex cube trapping the Braytech Security Frames. These robots are indestructible, will draw enemy attention, and deal a little bit of damage, meaning they are very helpful throughout the Lost Sector. Past this is a small room with a couple of Goblins and a Minotaur, but these enemies shouldn’t cause you much hassle; just be careful and don’t get too close (unless you have Synthoceps).

The next room is filled with enemies. Start by killing the Goblins to the right and slowly pushing to the right-hand side slope. Upon clearing enough enemies, additional Vex will spawn. Among these enemies will be a Cyclops, which will deal very high splash damage and can even one-shot you on a direct hit, so make sure to kill it as soon as possible. Either Rocket him or use some Special Ammo to take care of it quickly. 

Bunker E15 Lost Sector 2

Take the high ground and start clearing the remaining minor enemies; leave the Barrier Champion for last so it is easy to kill. Once defeated, free the remaining Braytech Frames and proceed to the final room.

In the boss room, take the high ground up the left or right slope and begin killing the minor enemies. Among these enemies will be a Wyvern. Feel free to use a Rocket here to take care of it quickly. Killing the Wyvern will trigger the boss spawn alongside some additional adds. Once you have dealt 1/3rd of the boss’s HP, an Overload Champion will spawn. Simply dump some Rockets into it to kill it quickly. Another Overload Champion will spawn when you deal another third of the boss’s health, so be ready for that, too. 

Bunker E15 Lost Sector 3

If you can deal very high burst damage with something like Celestial Nighthawk, get the boss to around half health and then Super him to skip the final Overload Champion. If not, simply get the boss down to its last bar of health, kill the final Overload, finish the boss off, and collect your loot at the back of the room.

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:

    The loadout recommended does not have overload champion coverage… I couldn’t get past the first champion with those weapons
