Destiny 2’s 2020 summer season is Season of Arrivals, and it runs up to the release of Destiny 2: Beyond Light on Nov. 10.

Over the summer, you can play various Season of Arrivals activities to unlock the 15 Triumphs required for the Forerunner title. While the Season of Arrivals Seal says it requires 21 Triumphs, there are only 15 inside the Seal (although some require multiple steps).

Here are all the Triumphs you need to complete to unlock the Forerunner title in Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals. Note that you must complete the Season of Arrivals Seal and unlock it within the menus before the end of Season of Arrivals on Nov. 10.

Notable or difficult Triumphs

Many of the Triumphs in this guide are fairly straightforward. But some of them do require quite a bit of work, and we can help with those.

Contact: Heavy Hitters - Defeat the Taken Pyromaster, Taken Monstrosity, and Taken Howler bosses during a Heroic Contact Public Event

To unlock this Triumph, you need to summon and defeat the three different Heroic Contact bosses. The boss rotates weekly, so make sure to do a Heroic Contact Public Event three weeks in a row. Note that it was impossible to complete this Triumph for the first month of the season, thanks to a bug. You may have killed the boss without getting credit. We have a guide on how to make Contact Heroic.

Exodus: Preparation and Exodus: Evacuation - Complete the first and second stage of the Exodus quest

There are two stages to this rather lengthy quest, Preparation and Evacuation. If you were keeping up with the season in the early months, chances are you’ve already completed the Preparation step. With both steps available, you can finish both of these Triumphs in a few hours and collect a neat Exotic.

You can check out our guide on this quest.

Hive-God Optometrist - Destroy all 50 of Savathun’s Eyes

Once you get the Ruinous Effigy Trace Rifle, you’ll need to gallivant around the system, destroying Savathun’s Eyes with the gun to get this Triumph. We have a complete guide on all 50 of Savathun’s Eyes.

Interference: Loop - Complete the three variations on the Interface mission: Ritual Encounter, Relic Encounter, Crystal Encounter

For this Triumph, you need to complete the weekly Interface mission three weeks in a row. The style of mission rotates, so make sure you do one of each before Nov. 10.

Interference: Clean Air - Defeat a mysterious Supplicant boss in the Interference mission

For this Triumph, you’ll need to complete the Interference mission one final time. This involves killing Nokris in a lengthy boss fight (which takes place in the old Court of Oryx arena, for you original Destiny fans). To kill Nokris, you’ll need to kill waves of adds and blow up shield crystals, just like you do in the Warmind Strike and story missions. When you kill Nokris, you’ll unlock the Triumph and get a creepy vignette teasing Beyond Light.
