Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer’s Week 4 Seasonal Challenges arrived on June 1, and in this guide we’ll show you how to complete them all.

Some Season 14 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 Draconian Protocol, Precision Calibration, and Vanguard Chosen in Season 14 — before they expire on Aug. 24.


Challenge: Speak to the Splicer Servitor and complete Path of the Splicer 4, and defeat Champions anywhere in the system. Bonus progress for Champions defeated in Override or Expunge.

All you need to do here is complete the weekly quest and then defeat Champions. You’ll complete this quest naturally after a few Overrides or you can take out some Champions in the Vault of Glass or Nightfalls.

Draconian Protocol

Challenge: Defeat the Wyvern boss in Override, and defeat powerful Vex anywhere in the system. Bonus progress for Vex defeated in Override or Expunge.

This quest is timing based, which is the only tricky thing about it. You’ll need to complete Override when it’s on Europa, which only happens once every three weeks. Once you defeat the boss on Europa, you’ll need to kill powerful Vex. We were able to get about 50% after a single Override and Expunge run.

Ethereal Splicer

Challenge: Collect Ether by playing Strikes, Gambit, Crucible, Public Events, and more.

This quest doesn’t give you an exact amount of Ether. You’ll just need to play Destiny 2 in a variety of different ways and you’ll eventually pick this one up.

Fusion Rifle Splicer

Challenge: In Override or Expunge, defeat combatants with Fusion Rifles. Earn bonus progress by rapidly defeating them.

All you need to do here is put on a fusion rifle and go to town. Unlike previous weeks, this quest goes pretty quickly.

Trials of the Tinker

Challenge: Unlock Artifact Mods. 12 total.

All you need to do here is earn enough XP to unlock 12 mods for your Artifact. You’ll do this naturally during the season, but you can speed it up with bounties and Challenges.

Contender’s Delve

Challenge: Complete a Lost Sector on Legend or higher.

You can complete this Challenge while hunting for some new Exotics. Just complete the daily-rotating Legend or Master Lost Sector to finish up this challenge.

Precision Calibration

Challenge: Calibrate marksman weapon — scout rifles, sniper rifles, and linear fusion rifles — by landing precision final blows. Bonus progress against Guardians.

Like the other Calibration challenges, just put on one or two of the mentioned weapons and use them until you complete the challenge. The quest does go faster in the Crucible, but only go that route if you’re a good shot.

High-Value Hunter

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

Like most of the Gambit Challenges, you’ll just need to play Gambit. But since you need powerful enemy kills, you can just look for the high-value target spawn message if you want to earn some bonus progress.

Momentum Crash

Challenge: Defeat Guardians in Momentum Control. Earn bonus progress with Zone Advantage.

For this Challenge, you’ll need to compete in Momentum Control, which will only be available every few weeks. Make sure to play this game mode when it’s up if you want to complete this Challenge.

Vanguard Chosen

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

You’ll need to finish three Nightfalls for this one, and you can do any difficulty as long as it’s Hero or above. If you’re planning on doing Grand Master Nightfalls this season, you can just wait for those. Otherwise, just jump into a quick three Hero Nightfalls to finish this challenge. The best part of this Challenge is that it awards a Nightfall weapon once you complete it.

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 Aug. 24, which rewards a Large Bright Dust Pile.
