How to complete a Daily Challenge in Destiny 2

How to find each Iron Banner objective.

Destiny 2's Daily Challenge is an objective you can complete as part of Iron Banner.

Completing a Daily Challenge is useful to increase your Iron Banner rank boost, and is also a requirement for completing the Forging Iron quest.

Of course, you need to find what the Daily Challenge in Destiny 2 is first - which this page can help with.

How to complete a Daily Challenge in Destiny 2

The Daily Challenge is an objective introduced in Iron Banner as part of the 'rank boost' system - but you'll likely first come across it as you complete the Forging Iron quest.

To find the Daily Challenge in Destiny 2, go to the Director screen, select Crucible, then hover over the Iron Banner node. On the bottom half of this explainer will be the 'Challenges' - this is the Daily Challenge you must complete.

For example, in the first week of Iron Banner in Season 18, the first Daily Challenge is 'Complete Iron Banner matches as either Arc or Stasis subclasses'.

Confusingly, it says 'Weekly'. This is because there are four Daily Challenges across the week, with one new Daily Challenge rolling out per day - on the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday daily reset.

You can either complete them as they unlock, or save them up until Friday onwards - whichever you prefer.

The Season of Plunder is here! New additions include the Sails of the Shipstealer quest, Treasure Coordinates and Map Fragments, Cryptic Quatrains and weapons such as the Quicksilver Storm and Taipan 4FR. Meanwhile, there's the arrival of King's Fall and King's Fall challenges such as Devious Theory and Gaze Amaze, plus weapons including Doom of Chelchis and Touch of Malice. Elsewhere, we've seen the return of Allied Demand in Iron Banner this season. Get up to speed with our levelling guide ahead of tackling the Duality dungeon, and learn how to collect Calus Bobblehead locations, Calus Automaton locations and find all Opulent Key chests. For The Witch Queen, learn how to get Exotics including Dead Messenger and Parasite.

Besides completing the Forging Iron quest step, the benefit of completing Daily Challenges is it can increase your rank boost during the event.

If you select Iron Banner, then hover over the Rank Boost node in the bottom right, you can see your current boost based on various elements - including how many Daily Challenges you have completed.

If you are serious about ranking up during Iron Banner - which is all the more important now it only appears two weeks per season - then having as many rank boosts active as possible will be a priority, especially if you also want to unlock an Allied Demand along the way.

Enjoy this year's Iron Banner!
