Extraction Lost Sector Destiny 2 Guide and Location

by | Aug 14, 2022

[toc] Extraction is absolutely the worst Lost Sector in Destiny 2. It takes the longest amount of time out of any Lost Sector. The combination of Arc, Void shields, and both Overload and Unstoppable Champions forces a very unfun and restrictive loadout.

While our Legend Lost Sectors guide features every Legend and Master Lost Sectors in the game, this The Conflux mini-guide covers everything you need to know to prepare, including recommended loadouts, enemy shields, and Champions.

Extraction Location and Requirements

The Extraction Lost Sector is located in the Quagmire, on the Throne World.

This season, the best loadout is:

  • Night Watch (or any Kinetic Scout Rifle)
  • Hard Light
  • Subzero Salvo (or any Arc Rocket Launcher)
  • A Solar 3.0 Build

Hard Light is going to do 90% of the work in this Lost Sector. The remaining 10% is with your abilities and Rocket Launcher. Hard Light can fire either Arc, Solar, or Void ammo. In the Extraction Lost Sector, you’ll find both Arc and Void shields. Because of Match Game, both shields are hard to break without the right element.

Extraction Lost Secto

Since Arc Burn is also active in this Lost Sector, an Arc Rocket Launcher is the easiest option for DPS. If you have access to the Duality dungeon, Stormchaser is a better Power Weapon you should use.

Essential Mods

Make sure to equip these mods for easy runs:

ArtMod NameSlotAffinityCostEffectsTypeElementReleased
Overload Auto rifle and SMG mod Destiny 2 artOverload RoundsArmsAny1Uninterrupted fire from Auto Rifles and Submachine Guns grants bullets that stun combatants, delaying ability energy regeneration and lowering combatant damage output. Strong against Overload Champions.ChampionsAnySeason 17

Requirements

Difficulty Legend Master
Recommended Power 1560 1590
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.

Extraction guide

You should use Hard Light in Void-mode in the first room. There are a lot of Void-shielded enemies in this room. These enemies deal a lot of damage so you’ll want to kill them as possible. Swap between Hard Light and your abilities for easy kills.

After you finish the first room, there are no more Void shields left. You’re safe to leave Hard Light in Arc-mode for the remaining of the Extraction Lost Sector.

Hard Light Destiny 2 featured auto rifle

Hard Light Exotic Auto Rifle

While in Arc-mode, Hard Light will be buffed through the Arc Burn modifier. Hard Light will also be able to break the Arc shields and stun any Overload Champions.

You’ll want to swap to your Kinetic Scout Rifle whenever you run into an Unstoppable Champion. Once you stun the Unstoppable Champion, finish it with abilities and your Rocket Launcher.

Take the Extraction Lost Sector at your own pace. It’s a very slow Lost Sector, even for the fastest speedrunners. Save your super and some Rocket Launcher ammo for the final boss.
