This season, the best loadout is:

  • Pardon Our Dust
  • BXR-55 Battler
  • Gjallarhorn (or Xenophage)
  • A Solar 3.0 Build

The majority of your ad clear in the Sepulcher Lost Sector will be with your Solar abilities and with Gjallarhorn. Your Solar abilities will create Solar Wells that will buff the damage from the BXR and Gjallarhorn.

Use your legendary grenade launcher to deal with Unstoppable Champions. The BXR and everything else in the recommended loadout will take care of the rest of the Lost Sector.

With Rocket Launcher ammo mods on your armor, you only need one Gjallarhorn rocket per Champion. The extra rockets go towards quickly killing a wave of enemies and the final boss.

Pro Tip: All of these weapons are very strong with a Solar 3.0 build. Weave a Solar 3.0 ability into your Solar weapons to make the Lost Sector easier for yourself.

Essential Mods

Make sure to equip these mods for easy runs:

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.

Sepulcher Lost Sector guide

Sepulcher is a really fast Lost Sector, but it’s easy to get surrounded by enemies. The Lost Sector is very close and confined with enemies spawning from multiple locations.

At the beginning of the Lost Sector, you’re stopped in an open room with almost no cover. In this room, enemies spawn from the left and right corners of the room.

Normally, this room can be difficult with all of the Solar abilities coming your way. What makes it easy is if you kill everything as they spawn.

Sepulcher Lost Sector

Use your Solar abilities on one corner and Gjallarhorn on the other corner. One well-placed Solar Grenade and Gjallarhorn can kill almost every enemy that spawns.

In the final two rooms of the Sepulcher Lost Sector, there are a lot of enemies grouped up together. If it feels like there are too many enemies for you, use your Solar 3.0 abilities first.

This should clear away a good amount of enemies for you. If it’s not enough, the BXR and Gjallarhorn will make quick work of the rest.

One especially annoying thing about the Sepulcher Lost Sector is how many Lucent Moths will attack you. They do a lot of damage if they get near you. It’s really easy to kill yourself if you shoot it when it’s too close.

Keep a look out for these Lucent Moths and shoot them when as soon as they spawn. If you kill them early, their explosions will kill enemies for you. You’ll save a ton of ability energy and ammo this way.

Before you go…

Hopefully, you now have everything you need to know how to farm this Lost Sector. But if you find yourself struggling, take your game to the next level with a top-tier build or one of the best weapons in the game.
