Destiny 2 Ghosts of the Deep Loot Table: Weapons & Armor

by | May 29, 2023

The Ghost of the Deep is finally here, and many are calling it the best (and perhaps more challenging) Destiny 2 dungeon to date. And its loot appears to be on par in terms of lethality and aesthetics.

This guide will cover the entire Ghost of the Deep loot table, including the new armor set, Legendary weapons, and Exotic.

Ghost of the Deep dungeon Armor

As with every other dungeon in Destiny 2, Ghost of the Deep offers one armor set per class. This time around, the armor sets are heavily inspired by the Lucent Hive. And by the way, they look incredible…

How to Farm the Ghost of the Deep

As is tradition, this dungeon can be farmed for unlimited loot. All you need is a committed Fireteam and a couple of hours ahead of you. You can run this dungeon as many times as you want on any given week. The Dungeon Exotic, however, can only be farmed once per character per week.

This is how you’ll be able to farm the Ghost of the Deep dungeon:

  1. Go through the dungeon on your first character until you reach the encounter you want to farm.
  2. Start the encounter and wipe (i.e., die without beating it).
  3. Ask your Fireteam to wait. Change characters and log into a character that hasn’t run the dungeon that week.
  4. On that second character, join your Fireteam again.
  5. Wipe again. Now your second character has the proper checkpoint.

And that’s it. You’ll then be able to farm that encounter ad nauseam until reset! To continue farming, you’ll need to:

  1. Launch the dungeon using your second character (the one that is holding the checkpoint).
  2. Change characters and rejoin your Fireteam on your first character.
  3. Complete the encounter for loot.
  4. Exit the dungeon, switch characters again, and repeat Step 1.

Ghost of the Deep Dungeon release date

The Ghost of the Deep Dungeon was released on Friday, May 26, 2023, at 10 AM Pacific.

We’ve known for a long time that Season 21 would feature a new [Redacted] Dungeon. Every season features either a new dungeon or a new/reprised raid. With Root of Nightmares’ release last season, we knew Season of the Deep would feature a new dungeon. Bungie confirmed this a few weeks ago:

Well, get your Guardians ready for the next adventure, the new [Redacted] dungeon opens at 10AM Pacific, on Friday, May 26.

    ” Usually, Bungie adds specific triumphs that, when completed, increase your chances of earning the Dungeon Exotic. It is unclear whether Ghost of the Deep will also offer this feature but we’ll know more as more teams uncover its secrets. ”

    There is a triumph, it’s called “Ghoul” in the titles part of the Journey tab.
