How to Beat the Gauntlet in Destiny 2 Prestige Leviathan Raid
The Prestige Leviathan Raid is now available in Destiny 2 and it is no joke. Enemies are tougher, your weapons are weaker, death lurks around literally every corner. The Gauntlet is kicking things off for the prestige modes inaugural punishment.
The strategy for the Gauntlet in the Prestige Leviathan Raid is pretty much the same as normal. Pick two runners and assign everyone else a plate to guard. Kill all the adds, and then the Centurions. Once they’re dead, two runners grab the orbs and split up the plates into two teams (Dog/Sun and Chalice/Blades). Pick who shoots top on their team’s panels and who shoots bottom. When the runners call out a symbol and a placement, shoot the ones not called. For example, if they say Dog/middle, the Dog/Sun team shoots the top and bottom triangles under the symbol. Do that until it turns green.
After it turns green, whoever is guarding that symbol should jump down immediately and kill the Psion about to spawn so it doesn’t create Projections. Continue until both runners get through and earn a buff called Proven Worthy. Once you have that buff, it’s time to swap with two of the plates so they can become runners. You want everyone to get through and get the buff if possible. This will be the hard part of the Gauntlet in the Prestige Leviathan Raid for most people, as you’ll need to have a good grasp on both inside and outside.
After three runs it’s time for everyone to run together. Remember to take turns on the orbs so everyone can survive. There are only three orbs this time so three people will need to skip each run, but otherwise is the same.
Keep in mind that revive tokens work differently in the Prestige Leviathan Raid in Destiny 2. If you die, you lose yours. Also, enemies are a lot tougher than they usually are in Destiny 2, with Psions summoning Projections at a faster rate. We recommend powerful scout rifles and good auto rifles for the Prestige Leviathan Raid. As for heavy, the Wardcliff Coil actually does very well in here. You’ll want to avoid close range as much as possible unless you have really high defense. Other than that it’s basically the same as normal.
Have fun and good luck, Guardians.
