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

  • A Kinetic Sniper Rifle
  • Graviton Lance
  • A Void Linear Fusion Rifle or Rocket Launcher
  • A Void3.0 Build

Graviton Lance is so much fun paired with a Void 3.0 build! There are constant explosions from Graviton Lance kills and from Void abilities. Both of them combined make ad clearing very fast and make you feel unkillable.

The Sniper Rifle in the recommended loadout is only used to break the shields on Barrier Champions. Graviton Lance will do the majority of the ad clear in The Quarry and also counters the Unstoppable Champions.

Graviton Lance Pulse Rifle

Because Void Burn buffs your Void damage, you should use a Void Heavy weapon for boss and Champion DPS. A Linear Fusion Rifle does the most damage, and the Taipan-4FR is easy to obtain.

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.

The Quarry Lost Sector guide

The most difficult areas in The Quarry are in the middle of the Lost Sector and in the final room. Both areas are difficult because you’re surrounded by enemies with very little safe cover. The Cabal enemies have throwables and AoE attacks that can still reach you.

In the middle section, your first priority is killing the trash enemies before Champions. The best way to kill them is with your abilities for survivability.

Void Warlock Destiny 2 featured

If you’re using a Void 3.0 build, you’ll get healing. With a Solar 3.0 build, you’ll have increased recovery. Once you’ve killed most of the trash enemies, the Champion is easy to take down.

In the final room, you’ll want to hug the left side of the room. This breaks the line of sight the enemies on the cliff above have on you. If they can’t see you, they’re going to attack you a lot less. From here, take out each enemy one by one until all that’s left is the final boss.

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 Quarry 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 Quarry Lost Sector features Solar-shielded enemies and Unstoppable and Barrier Champions. Due to its length to complete and low difficulty, this is one of the absolute best Lost Sectors 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.
