Heroic public events in Destiny 2 are more difficult versions of regular public events. In order to start one, you have to follow specific steps during the regular event. When you do, the difficulty will increase. If you manage to complete it, you’ll get better rewards than you would with a normal version. This guide is going to show you how to start Destiny 2 heroic public events – glimmer extraction, ether resupply, devil walker, injection rig, cabal excavation and disrupt vex construction.
How to start heroic Glimmer Extraction
The regular version is about stopping the Fallen from getting glimmer. Gold rank is achieved if you defeat commanders in each wave before the timer runs out.
In order to start the heroic version of Glimmer Extraction, you’ll have to destroy the generators before killing the enemies. Once you’re done, you’ll have to capture the glimmer extractor and fight a boss.
How to trigger heroic Ether Resupply
To trigger the heroic Ether Resupply, you’ll have to kill all the little servitors. The event is about taking care of a giant servitor. He spawns several small copies of himself every oce in a while. In the regular version, you can safely ignore the little bastards. However, if you want better loot, you have to destroy each one of them before they disappear.
How to unlock heroic Devil Walker
In order to unlock the heroic version of Devil Walker, you need to open all the scorch cannon bubbles. When you take enough of the machine’s health, it will drop a bunch of orbs. Use those orbs to unlock all the bubbles and grab the scorch cannons – this will cause another devil walker to spawn, starting the heroic event.
How to start heroic Injection Rig
You can start this heroic event by destroying all the vents after killing a Psion. When you kill the first Psion, a set of golden vents will open up, releasing steam. It will damage you, but fight the impusle to run. Instead, shoot at them. After the second Psion, another set of vents will open up. Destroy them as well.
How to begin heroic Cabal Excavation
How to trigger heroic Disrupt Vex Construction
To trigger the heroic version of Disrupt Vex Construction, you’ll need to capture the points where the light beams end. If you look at the sacrificial altar, you’ll see several light beams shooting out from it. They all end at platforms that can be captured – when you’ve got all of them, a boss will show up.
