Destiny 2 Lost Sectors: Legend and Master Guides & Rotation

by | Jun 4, 2021

Destiny 2 is definitely more fun when played with friends. And while most activities do require or encourage group play, there is one exception: Legend and Master Lost Sectors.

On top of offering specific rewards when completed Solo, Legend and Master Lost Sectors are also fun and engaging challenges for solo Guardians.

As is tradition over here, let’s cut to the chase and dive into the nitty-gritty: Lost Sectors guides (shields and champions), Rotation, and Rewards.


Destiny 2 Legend and Master Lost Sectors guides

Both Legend and Master Lost Sectors can be challenging activities, especially for the average player.

But no matter your skills, whether you can speedrun Master Lost Sectors like our favorite streamers or can barely complete a Legend Lost Sector, you need to make sure you bring weapons with matching elements and armor with the necessary Champions mods:

Destiny 2 Lost Sector Rotation

As with most things in Destiny 2, Legend and Master Lost Sectors are on rotation. In this case, a daily rotation. Any given day, only one Legend and one Master Lost Sector will be available to farm.

For the sake of clarity, the day officially starts at 9 AM PDT, Destiny 2’s official reset time.

Destiny 2 Lost Sectors rewards: Exotic Armor

Before these were introduced, it was nearly impossible to farm Exotic armor in Destiny 2. With so many Exotic weapons and armor pieces available, the RNG to find the armor you wanted was too severe.

Legend and Master Lost Sectors finally changed that, as they limit the possible rewards to only one armor slot per day: Helm, arms, chest, legs, and class item.

Equally important, these Lost Sectors are the only way to acquire the latest Exotic armor released since Beyond Light (also known as Year 4 of Destiny 2). Each class has 4 Exotic armor pieces that are only available in Legend and Master Lost Sectors (if completed solo):

Destiny 2 Lost Sectors farm: Requirements

If you’re interested in farming Legend and/or Master Lost Sectors, you need to have a proper Power Level (including your Artifact’s bonus Power):

Difficulty Legend Master
Recommended Power Level 1310 1340
Exotic Drop Chance 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.

Other than that, it’s all a matter of trial and error until you have an optimized build. But if that sounds too intimidating, you should definitely start by watching the video guides linked above.


Lost Sectors Drop Rates

Bungie doesn’t provide any official figures regarding drop rates other than their very vague “rare” or “common” indications. Luckily, some very dedicated Guardians have put in the work to run and track hundreds of Legend Lost Sectors.

Reddit user LostSectorLoony ran 600+ Lost Sectors. These were his findings:

From a total of 604 Lost Sectors, he received 138 exotic drops for a total drop rate of 22.85%.

Another important finding to keep in mind is that “run time does not seem to affect drop rates“. In other words, run faster Lost Sectors when possible

Which lost sector is best for farming?

It’s common knowledge that Lost Sectors were not created equal. Some are much easier and/or faster to complete than others. And as said by  LostSectorLoony:

I saw no significant difference in drop rate between sectors, but there is a marked difference in how fast they can be completed.

To give you a sense of what Lost Sectors are easier to farm, these are his personal fastest runs and average times for each sector:

Sector Best time Average time
Veles Labyrinth 1:46 3:23
Exodus Garden 2A 2:16 4:30
Perdition 2:52 4:33
Concealed Void 4:42 6:44
Bunker E-15 4:53 7:14
K1 Crew Quarters 06:00 8:10
K1 Communion 10:42 12:50
K1 Logistics 11:43 14:11

Hopefully, you now have everything you need to know how to best farm Lost Sectors to find exactly the type of Exotic armor you need.
