The latest weekly reset in Destiny 2 brings the quest for Thorn, the legendary Destiny 1 hand cannon, to Season of the Drifter. Thanks to the recent Power level rise, Destiny players are also looking to keep grinding up to the new 700 Power cap, which is where this week’s Ascendant Challenge comes in. This rewards you with Powerful gear, but you’ll both need to know where to go and be well-equipped to complete it.
Ascendant Challenges require you to use a Tincture of Queensfoil while in the Dreaming City. This will allow you to see and travel through a portal to the Ascendant Plane (this one is located in a part of Rheasilvia, the Harbinger’s Seclude), where you’re faced with a tough challenge in the Cimmerian Garrison. This one involves a lot of platforming, a relic weapon, and a bunch of Taken enemies. You can see where to go and what to do in the video above.
The quest to find Thorn is also the next step in one of Destiny’s best, longest-running stories, so check out our lore catch-up guide for everything you need to know.
