How to increase your chances of Exotic armour dropping from a Lost Sector

The daily Lost Sectors come in multiple difficulties, and this directly affects the odds of exotic armour being awarded at completion:

  • Legend Difficulty has a recommended Power of 1570, and will feature several mission modifiers to make the encounter more difficult. Exotic armour is a rare reward for completing this difficulty.
  • Master Difficulty has a recommended power of 1600, and has even more challenge-increasing modifiers. Exotic armours are a common reward at this difficulty.

It’s also important to note that while you can run these more difficult Lost Sectors with a team, you must be solo to receive the exotic rewards.

To see today's Lost Sector, look out for the following icon on plantary destinations:

Remember, when playing the highlighted Lost Sector, keep in mind there is no guarantee the Exotic armour will drop on any given completion. The good news is you can re-run the Lost Sectors in hopes of better luck on subsequent attempt.

Some Lost Sectors are more difficult than others, so if you are hunting a specific piece of exotic armour, such as Legs, and finding one level too difficult, you can always target a different day offering the same reward.

Tips and tricks for completing solo Legend and Master Lost Sectors

The goals of the Lost Sectors are simple: defeat the boss at the end and open the reward chest. At Legend and Master difficulties, these are designed to be a stiff test for even the most seasoned Destiny 2 players.

Champions abound and the modifiers can be killers if you don’t plan for them. Still, there are a few things you can do to increase your odds of success.

Work on your Power Level first

No advice can save you if you aren’t a high enough Power Level to take on the challenge. This directly affects your ability to give and receive damage.

You should focus on increasing your power in other activities, particularly those that reward Powerful and Pinnacle Engrams. Most players should not take on Legend or Master Lost Sectors until they are the recommended Power Level or higher.

Plan your loadout carefully

Loadouts are locked inside of these Lost Sectors, so you can’t change equipment when you are inside.

There will be Champions, make sure to arm yourself with weapons designed to counter their specific abilities. The Match Game modifier will significantly reduce your ability to break shields that don’t watch the element type of your weapons, and you should take advantage of the damaging boosting burns.

Pay attention to your lives and timer

The Legend and Master Lost Sectors have a lives system. Every time you die and respawn, it consumes one life. And if you die when you are out of lives, then you are sent back to orbit. Defeating Champions adds a life back.

It may be tempting to play extremely conservative, but there is a timer. Once it reaches zero then all of your bonus lives are forfeit, and you will only have one shot to make it to the end alive.

Prioritise your targets and fight strategically

Champions are extremely lethal, but can be stunned if you use the correct weapon and mod combination.

You can use that to your advantage, and temporarily knock the big guns out of a battle while you mop up the weaker targets, reducing the number of things trying to kill you. Eliminate melee fighters that can push you out of cover as soon as possible, and be willing to spend your heavy ammo or super if you are being overwhelmed.

Be willing to try, quit, and try again

Sometimes the setup you thought was perfect just doesn’t do it. There’s no need to keep bashing your head against the same stubborn target. If you are dying too quickly, redo your setup for more survivability, using abilities that can keep you safe and weapons that allow you to chip away at a distance.

If you are running out of time, consider a more aggressive build, like rockets or a sword that can instantly wipe out time consuming enemies. And if the burn is arc, for the love of God, bring Riskrunner.
