Heroic Cryo Pod is one of the new public events in Destiny 2 Forsaken. It’s a beefed up version of the Cryo Pod event, with stronger enemies and better rewards. In order to start it, you’ll have to complete several steps, so you might miss it if you just start blindly shooting at everything that moves. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to start heroic cryo pod public event in Destiny 2.
Neutralize the Cryo-Pod Defenders
The regular version of the event is just you killing a bunch of enemies that appear around the cryo pod mentioned in the name, then defeating a boss. However, the heroic version isn’t much harder, to tell the truth. In order to start it, do what you usually would until the Wanted enemy appears. Don’t kill them.
Wait until the pod starts emitting freezing gas. You’ll see it coming out of the four valves on the sides. Shoot at one of them, and after you’ve done enough damage, you’ll reveal an orb. Take the orb and throw it at the wanted enemy. It will freeze them. While they’re frozen, shoot another one and throw it as soon as the Wanted has thawed. After you’ve used up all four orbs, this will trigger the heroic cryo pod public event.
Secure the Wanted Enemy in Tangled Shore
You’ll now have to stay close to the frozen Wanted until the capture is over, and you’ll have around a minute to do it. The more guardians stand in the circle, the faster it will fill up. Of course, you’ll still have to fend off enemies while you do it.
It seems like heroic event rewards have been nerfed in Forsaken. The only stuff we managed to get were two Ghost Fragments, which seem to be Tangled Shore tokens, and a blue item.
