The First Descendant – How To Destroy Void Fragments

There are ton of Void Fragments of different elements available through Void Missions.

The Void Fragments are these tall monolith structures with a glowing elemental core in the middle that you’ll spot around the map. These missions are a great farmable source for XP, Weapons, Gold, and valuable resources like mods and crafting materials. So destroying them and reaping their rewards is a no-brainer right? Well, they’re invulnerable to your gunfire which makes destroying them a bit tricky. Hence, I’ll explain how exactly you can destroy these Void Fragments in The First Descendant.

How to Destroy the Void Fragments?

Each Void Fragment has an elemental attribute associated with it I.e. fire, chill, toxic, electric, and non-attribute. Your descendant must have the skills of the same elemental attribute to damage and destroy that Void Fragment. You can either take these missions on Solo, with your teammates, or publically.

As you damage the Void Fragment once, the event will start and a hoard of Vulgus will start spawning in. After damaging the first portion of the health of the Void Fragment, it will gain immunity from all attacks until the wave of enemies is cleared.

Once you clear all the enemies, you’ll be able to damage the Void Fragment again (with skills of the same attribute, obviously). You’ll repeat this process until all three portions of Void Fragment’s health depletes and it’ll be destroyed. This is how you can destroy the Void Fragment featured in Void Missions in The First Descendant.

What is the Use of Void Shards?

After accumulating enough Void Shards from multiple runs of the Void Fragment mission, you’ll need to deposit them into a Void Fusion Reactor. The reactor will be close to the Void Fragment so you can check the map for its location.

You have to check the requirement of the Void Reactor in the tooltip as some require specific Void Shards to get activated. After depositing the Void Shards into the Reactor, they will power it up and a hoard of enemies with a mini-boss will spawn. You’ll need to take them out to claim your rewards and a Reconstruction Device that may give you Amorphous Materials.
