Bunker E15 Lost Sector Destiny 2 Guide and Location

by | Sep 9, 2022

[toc] Located on Europa, Bunker E15 is the easiest Lost Sector in Destiny. It’s the only Lost Sector that can be completed without even trying. That being said, it remains below average to farm because of its length.

While our Lost Sectors hub features every Lost Sectors in the game, this Bunker E15 guide covers everything you need to know to prepare, including recommended loadouts, shields, and champions.

During Season of Plunder (S18), the best loadout is the following:

  • A Kinetic Sniper
  • Le Monarque
  • Taipan-4fr Linea Fusion
  • A Void 3.0 Build

In the Bunker E15 Lost Sector, all of your Void damage is drastically increased which mean that Le Monarque, Taipan-4fr, and a Void 3.0 build are all buffed here.

There are also a few Overload and Barrier Champions to deal with. For these Champions, a Sniper Rifle counters Barrier Champions and Le Monarque counters Overloads. At the beginning of Season of Plunder, Bungie buffed Le Monarque to intrinsically stun Overload Champions. It’s currently the best weapon against them!

Le Monarque and your Void abilities will kill most enemies in Bunker E15 with ease. Your Champion and boss DPS will almost entirely come from the Taipan-4fr.

The Sniper Rifle won’t be used much, but you can’t clear the Lost Sector without it. It’s there to break Barrier Champions when needed and give you an extra DPS option.

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 the easiest Lost Sector 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.

If that wasn’t easy enough, you can have non-stop healing with your Void 3.0 build. All you need is the Echo of Starvation Void 3.0 Fragment and pick up Orbs of Power. When you pick up an Orb, you gain the Devour buff. Devour heals you and grants ability energy for every kill – something you’ll be doing a lot of.

When you first enter the Lost Sector, you’re greeted by Fallen and an Overload Captain. Once you kill them with Le Monarque and Taipan, you’ll never 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. Keep Devour active by getting kills, and you’ll be headed to the final boss room quickly. When you run into Barrier Champions, Taipan-4FR and your Sniper Rifle can kill them from safety.

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 and you can only remember one sentence, these are the highlights:

Featuring a Void burn modifier, the Bunker E15 Lost Sector features Void-shielded enemies and Overload and Barrier Champions. Due to its significant length to complete, this is an average Lost Sector to farm.

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.
