Destiny 2: Beyond Light continues the use of legendary lost sectors. These are exactly what they sound like, the same content that you’d find out in the open world, but much harder. If you’re here, you’re probably wondering how to unlock legendary lost sectors in Destiny 2: Beyond Light for both legend and master difficulties. Here’s what you need to know.

How to Unlock Legend & Master Lost Sectors in Destiny 2: Beyond Light

While usually, Destiny 2 players aren’t flocking to lost sectors on the regular unless they need to for something specific, Beyond Light throws a wrinkle into the usual formula for this content.

Soloing legendary lost sectors at both legend and master difficulty in Beyond Light will give you a chance of earning exotic armor pieces, including the new exotic armor added in this expansion. In fact, it’s the only place you can get them so naturally, you’ll want to unlock them as soon as possible.

Just to at least unlock legend and master difficulty lost sectors, you need to have your character at 1200 power level or higher. You won’t be able to even see them on the director for Europa or the Cosmodrone without having all the gear on your character equal 1200 or higher.

This unlocks the legend and master lost sectors, but you would be very brave to even think about trying them at 1200. Realistically you should be as close to the suggested power level or higher because the content is extremely difficult.

Legend is 1250 recommended and master is 1280. On top of being high power content, it’s also loaded with modifiers designed to kill you and of course, champion enemies. So come locked and loaded with your best gear and be very patient.

Remember, you must complete these solo for the exotic drops. If you do them with a group all you’ll get is Enhancement Cores.

That’s all you need to know about how to unlock legendary lost sectors in Destiny 2: Beyond Light. For more tips and tricks, be sure to check out our Beyond Light wiki guide filled with FAQs answered.
