How to Activate Heroic Public Events – Vex Crossroads

Destiny 2

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 Vex Crossroads Public Event into its heroic version.

This public event is part of the Curse of Osiris DLC and takes place on Mercury. It involves disabling warp gates and defeating Vex Gate Lords in a variety of sizes. Follow the steps below to activate the heroic version and earn more rewards.

The Vex Crossroads event involves a two-pronged approach to disabling warp gates by slamming arc charges into certain places. The arc charges are dropped by Keeper of Ages Vex that appear after killing a number of less important Vex. After you find yourself on the outer islands and disable the warp gate there, don’t head back to the central arena just yet. Instead look for a crystal of sorts on the other side of the island. Shooting it will spawn a platform and another crystal. Keep jumping on the platforms and clearing out crystals until you reach the top and claim the control point. That will activate the heroic version of the event.

The rest will continue along the normal path of the event. Rinse and repeat on the other side, if no one else has done it yet, and then defeat the big Gate Lord in the center.
