Destiny 2: Forsaken’s prison break will infest the game’s world

The universe’s most dangerous criminals will be scattered around each and every activity

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 players who’ve spent any time in Faction Rallies over the past year are sick of Lost Sectors — lifeless caves that house minor enemies and chests. But Bungie aims to improve a good-idea-gone-boring from Destiny 2’s vanilla launch with Forsaken. Game Informer reports that dangerous villains from the Prison of Elders will infest Lost Sectors in Forsaken, as well as everywhere else.

In Destiny 2: Forsaken, the location-based Flashpoint milestone will be getting a heap of new activities piled onto it. Players will be able to accomplish other activities aside from Public Events to get their weekly engram. But all of the world events — Public Events included — will now be filled with escaped convicts.

Game Informer reports that these escapees can show up in Public Events, Lost Sectors, Gambit matches, world bosses and even strikes as additional minibosses. But players will be able to hunt these creatures down with help from the Spider, a Fallen mob boss who has taken up residence in the Tangled Shore.

The Spider will offer players new bounties; they’ll have to buy them from him. Think wanted posters with dollar signs scattered around a sheriff’s office, and you’re almost there. Players can take these bounties and hunt down the specific criminal for rewards — paying them back their bounty investment and then some.

The bounties range in difficulty, with the hardest being The Outlaw Lost Sector. These are essentially Adventures that take place across the galaxy, offering up one completely unique boss per location. Game Informer describes — and offers gameplay footage of — two different Outlaw Lost Sectors. The first was an impervious Fallen Captain that you must destroy, while the other was a Ogre-summoning Wizard whose lackeys you have to eliminate before it can be killed.

By the look of those two Outlaw Lost Sectors, these bounties won’t be easy, and could offer hardcore players some long-term investment opportunities. Of course, all of this relies on the reward structure, something we won’t learn more about until after Destiny 2: Forsaken is released on Sept. 4 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
