Destiny 2’s Season of the Arrivals adds a new public event known as Contact into the mix of daily activities. To progress in the early part of the Season of the Arrivals storyline, you’ll need to complete one of these public events. Here’s what you need to know for how to complete the contact public event.
Contact Public Event in Destiny 2
The Contact public event in Destiny 2 is quite straight forward it seems, at least when compared to the more complicated Seraph Towers from Season of the Worthy.
In Contact you’re basically just mowing down waves of enemies, grabbing their motes Gambit style, and then banking them in the center bank area.
Like Gambit, there will be different enemy types drawn to the bank, but there will occasionally be Taken blockers that will need to be eliminated.
Your goal is to simply fill up the bank until it’s 100% and you’ll move on to the next stage while keeping the bank area free of enemies to not disrupt progress.
Occasionally champions will spawn and when defeated, will drop Blooms which offer a big boost to bank progress.
Champions need to be taken down ASAP otherwise they will rob the bank of Blooms instead. In addition, when Taken show up defeat the blockers to resume progress.
Otherwise, be mindful of how many motes you have. Pick them up before they disappear, bank them quickly and don’t die with any on you.
Contact starts off at 990 recommended power, quite low if you played last season. However, it does scale up all the way to 1040 by the time you reach the final stage, so don’t take it too lightly until you get your power up.
You’ll probably want items that will take down barriers, unstoppable enemies and overload enemies as the champions will feature that mechanic. Otherwise, use your best/favorite equipment.
How to Trigger Contact to Go Heroic
We’re still working on figuring out how to make Contact go heroic exactly, but we have accidentally reached the heroic version and here’s what we know about what to do at that point. A heavy amount of Taken will spawn in along with a powerful shielded boss enemy.
You won’t be able to damage the boss until you locate “Pylons” aka Blights that are heavily guarded in the nearby area. As you kill one, others will spawn until you’ve defeated all of them and you’ll be able to kill the boss.
Time is short, so definitely hurry up and don’t get caught up killing adds when you don’t know where the Pylons are. Go find them, take them out and then defeat the boss to wrap up the Contact public event in Destiny 2.
That’s all you need to know for how to complete the Contact public event in Destiny 2: Season of the Arrivals and make it go heroic.
