What is Battlegrounds?

For a lot of gamers, the word “Battlegrounds” refers to a PvP arena. That’s not the case in Destiny 2. This is a three-player PvE mode with four activities for Season of the Chosen.

Three of these modes are available now, at the time of writing, with a fourth coming on February 23.

Anyone who logs into Destiny for the first time during Season of the Chosen will jump directly into the Behemoth Battleground on Nessus. Those who want to unlock and upgrade the Hammer of Proving will need to play all of them.

Battlegrounds Tips & Tricks

The Battleground events follow the same pattern, although the setting, mechanics, and enemies will vary. You’ll need to start by destroying shield generators, face the boss, and kill a named enemy.

You’ll notice that Battlegrounds transpires in three parts. The boss will become immune at certain points in Battlegrounds and you’ll need to burn down the named enemy that spawns before continuing to fight the boss.

Here are some more tips you can use in Battlegrounds to ensure you come out victorious.

Focus the boss

You might be tempted to attack the waves of enemies who spawn alongside the boss in each Battleground. You’ll need to keep them away from you, sure, but they will respawn infinitely until you burn through each stage of the boss’ health bar.

Focus on depleting the boss’ health before dealing with any of the other enemies. If you turn your attention to them, you’re asking to get overwhelmed.

Maximize your loot

This tip is a simple one, and can apply to a lot of activities in Destiny. Make sure that you complete at least three Battlegrounds activities to recieve the Powerful Gear.

You can navigate to the Battlegrounds event from the Vanguard tab. Once you complete three of them, you’ll net yourself some tier-two gear.

Destroying the shield generators

To destroy the shield generators, you’ll need to fire at the red coils on the side. Longtime Destiny players will probably be able to figure this out, as they are similar to the weak spots of a lot of enemies in the game.

For some reason, it seems like a lot of new players want to get up-close and personal with the shield generators they’re trying to destroy. These things will explode, and kill everyone who stands near them.

These tips should help make sure you’re always succeeding in Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen Battlegrounds matches. We’ll keep you updated with any new content coming to Destiny 2, so make sure to stay up to date with all of the latest news.
