In Destiny 2: Forsaken, each Last Wish raid encounter has a challenge to complete for bonus loot. However, you’ll need to be in a level four clan first and buy the bounty from Hawthorne. Shuro Chi, The Corrupted, the raid’s second encounter, isn’t particularly easy on its own, but luckily this challenge doesn’t add too much difficulty. In this guide, we’ll teach you how to beat Shuro Chi’s “Which Witch” raid challenge.

The most annoying part of this challenge is when you fail because the fight is so damn long. The only other trouble with this challenge is time. Since you’ll be going a bit slower while being extra cautious, you’ll need to make up time by playing the fight well.

If this is your first week on Shuro Chi, The Corrupted you may want to pass on this challenge. However, veterans who know where the enemies all spawn should have a pretty easy time.

Time to dodge

There is some good news and bad news with this challenge. The good news is that it’s very easy to explain. The bad news is that it’s far less easy to build a strategy around.

To beat Shuro Chi’s challenge, you’ll need to make sure you don’t get hit by her long range precision attack. That’s it. That’s the whole thing. If you manage to complete the fight with no one in your Fireteam being hit, you’ll complete the challenge and earn your bonus.

Executing this is fairly hit or miss in our experience. Sometimes, Shuro Chi will just blast you out of nowhere — which will alert you with a big “challenge failed” on the side of your screen. But other times, she’ll fire wildly in completely random directions. A few times, it even looked like Shuro Chi hit one of our raid members, yet we still completed the challenge.

Which Witch challenge strategies

Our team came up with a few strategies for this challenge. First, keep away from Shuro Chi’s eyes. If you break the line of sight between the boss and yourself, she won’t be able to hit you. Thankfully, Shuro is very thin — we were able to block numerous bolts by hiding behind a pillar. If you can’t see the boss, she probably can’t see you.

Next, Shuro is a particularly bad shot if you’re moving. If you need to move, stay in the air as much as possible and don’t stop. Shuro’s shots are sudden, so you may find yourself hit if you stop for even a second. If you keep moving erratically, she’ll whiff almost every time.

Finally, help your teammates with callouts. Shuro makes a lot of noise, and she shouts when she does almost anything. If you think Shuro is going to attack, just start yelling at everyone to jump or find some cover.
