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: Season of the Chosen’s Week 4 Seasonal Challenges arrived on March 2, and in this guide we’ll show you how to complete them all.

Some Season 13 weekly Challenges are more involved than the others. Check out the descriptions below for advice on the fastest way to complete these Seasonal Challenges — particularly Intruder Alert, Explosive Entrance, and Sling the Stone — before they expire on May 11.

Contender’s Ascent 4

Challenge: Report to the War Table in the HELM and complete the “Challenger’s Proving IV” quest. Defeat 50 Cabal using a sniper rifle.

Like every week this season, head to the HELM to grab your new quest and complete the objective. You’ll need to do this one for the War Table XP. While you’re working on this quest, you should use a sniper rifle so you can kill Cabal while you go.

Golden Reaper

Challenge: Acquire Cabal Gold by playing Strikes, Gambit, Crucible, public events, and more. 400 total gold (cumulative over the course of the season).

You get Cabal Gold from basically any activity in Destiny 2, but you get the most Gold for your time in Strikes.

Intruder Alert

Challenge: Don’t allow opponents to interrupt Ghost in the Battlegrounds mission.

This one is a little confusing. Some Battlegrounds, like the Foothold Battleground in the Cosmodrome, feature Ghost scanning an item. If enemies crowd Ghost, he’ll stop the scan until you clear them. Protect your Ghost from enemies twice to get this Challenge.

Explosive Entrance

Challenge: Defeat Champions and get grenade takedowns in Battlegrounds.

This Challenge just takes time. You should get three Champion kills per Battlegrounds, and make sure you’re getting grenade kills as you go. You’ll need at least four Battlegrounds.

Contender’s Delve

Challenge: Complete a Lost Sector on Legend or higher.

As you power up your Light, you’ll be able to take on more powerful Lost Sectors. If you need some tips for Legendary Lost Sectors, check out our guide for farming Season of the Chosen Exotic armor.

Challenger’s Cipher

Challenge: Decrypt Prime Engrams. Five Prime Engrams of any tier.

This one is pretty easy to figure out. Just go to the HELM and use the Prismatic Recaster to decrypt your Engrams.

Sling the Stone

Challenge: Stagger, pierce, or disrupt Champions. 30 total.

The best way to unlock this Challenge is by running the Nightfall a few times and making sure you’re kitted out to deal with various Champion effects. You can also do this in Battlegrounds.

High-Value Hunter

Challenge: Defeat powerful combatants in Gambit. Earn bonus progress for defeating high-value targets.

For this one, just look for Gambit enemies with orange or yellow health bars.

Cadre of Contenders

Challenge: Complete Crucible matches in the Competitive playlist

Just run games in the Competitive playlist — you can select the Freelance version if you’re alone, which pairs you with other solo players — until you unlock this one.

Vanguard Chosen

Challenge: Complete any Nightfall: The Ordeal Strike on Hero difficulty or higher.

After you level up a bit, grab some pals and head into a Hero or higher Nightfall. Note that Hero Nightfalls have matchmaking, if you’re playing alone.

Make sure to finish all of these and the rest of the Seasonal Challenges if you want to complete the Master of All Challenge by May 11, which rewards a Large Bright Dust Pile.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
