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 7 Seasonal Challenges arrived on March 23, 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 Proving Grounds Trifecta, Diplomacy or Death, and Gambit Salvager’s Salvo — before they expire on May 11.

Contender’s Ascent 7

Challenge: Report to the War Table in the HELM and complete the “Challenger’s Proving VII” quest. Kill 100 Cabal with a submachine gun.

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. This week you’ll get some Large War Table Reputation, which should upgrade you further. Use a submachine gun while you’re doing this mission to kill two birds with one stone.

Proving Grounds Trifecta

Challenge: Complete the following in the Proving Grounds strike: finish the mission, defeat combatants, and deposit a Power Core in the undercarriage of the Land Tank.

This Challenge sounds complex, but it just involves several runs through the new Proving Grounds strike. You’ll need to complete Proving Grounds three times. If you’re focusing, you should be able to kill 150 enemies in those three strikes. You’ll also complete the “deposit two power cores” objective on your first run. Just replay the strike several times and you’ll finish this challenge.

Diplomacy or Death

Challenge: Listen to intercepted transmissions at the radio kiosk in the HELM. Hear five transmissions.

For this Challenge, you need to listen to the lore in the HELM. Just land in the HELM and go left. Interact with the panel on the wall and listen to the dialogue. When it ends, you should earn one pip on the Challenge. If you need more, leave the HELM and load back into it. Repeat this process until you earn the Challenge.

One Against Many

Challenge: Calibrate weapons by rapidly defeating 3 or more combatants.

You should get this Challenge while working on some of the more difficult Challenges here. Just focus on getting multikills and you’ll pick this one up pretty quickly.

Gambit Salvager’s Salvo

Challenge: Acquire the Toxicology ornament for the Salvager’s Salvo Grenade Launcher.

Once you earn Salvager’s Salvo, go talk to Drifter and pick up the Salvager’s Salvo ornament quest. You’ll just need to get grenade launcher kills and play Gambit matches to finish this Challenge.

Beyond Legendary

Challenge: Earn Valor ranks.

You’ll earn Valor as you play any kind of PvP. Just play the Crucible and you’ll pick up this Challenge after a few hours or weeks — depending on how much you play.

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.
