How to Get the Best New Armor in Destiny 2's Solstice of Heroes

destiny-2-solstice-of-heroes-armor-guide

Destiny 2's Solstice of Heroes seasonal event is now live, bringing with it some sexy armor sets for all three classes.

The armor sets are the default sets from the base game, as the event is all about re-living the attack on the Tower and the victory that Guardians experienced in the original campaign from the game.

The base armor set is destroyed and shoddy, but you can upgrade it to a beautiful new set that is 400 Power. You'll need to fight your way through a ton of challenges to do so, however, so let's get to it.

First things first, approach the statue of heroes in the center of the Tower. Doing so will transport you into the past, where you will speak to Ikora Rey. Doing so will launch a remixed version of the Homecoming mission from the original Destiny 2 campaign. Finish it and you will be awarded with the Scorched armor set. From here on out, it's about challenges and upgrades.

Scorched (Green) armor challenges

Most of the default set challenges can be done while playing through the five Redux missions, so keep in mind where you are and what you're doing while playing through them. After that, you'll need to spawn Elemental Orbs in Strikes, so hit up the Strike playlist for a few. Make sure you're wearing the full armor set, or orbs won't spawn.
