Each Public Event in Destiny 2 has a heroic version that will reward Guardians with better loot upon completion. Guardians must follow a specific set of steps to trigger the heroic version of the event. This guide will show you how to turn the Injection Rig Public Event into its heroic version.
This event is one of the more difficult ones to turn into its heroic version. It requires a great deal of firepower, as well as coordination with a multitude of Guardians. The injection rig has several vents that need to be destroyed in order to activate the heroic version of the event.
Destroy the Injection Rig Vents
The regular version of the event requires Guardians to kill a Psion during each phase. Once the Psion is killed, the injection rig will start venting exhaust inside a protective shield. Ghost will suggest that you evacuate the area, as you will start taking damage inside the exhaust shield. Instead of leaving, look for bright glowing vents that have opened on the rig. They are located along the top, middle, and bottom of the rig. During each phase, a different set of vents will open.
In order to activate the heroic version of the event, Guardians must destroy all of the vents. They take a fair bit of damage and only stay open for a limited amount of time. You’ll also be taking damage from the exhaust fumes, as well as any of the Cabal looking to kill you. The best way to accomplish this task is if you have a committed group of Guardians that know what they’re doing. Some should be in charge of locating and destroying the vents, while the rest thin out the Cabal enemies.
Once the event turns heroic, a large Valus Centurion will spawn. Kill him before the timer runs down to zero and you’ll have beaten the event.
