How to complete Override in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer
Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer has added plenty of new content for Guardians to sink their teeth into, including the new Override activity, so here’s how to complete it and defeat the Vex boss.
The latest Season of Bungie’s free-to-play action MMO, Destiny 2, is here and brings a ton of content to explore. Not only has the classic Vault of Glass Raid returned, but there are also new exotic weapons to do battle with, and a fresh Battle Pass to grind out.
Alongside this new content comes a new mode, Override, in which six Guardians are tasked with infiltrating the Vex network and bringing it down. The new mode can be quite tough, so here’s everything you need to know about the first Override activity – Europa.
How to compete Override: Europa in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer
Override: Europa will require six-person teams, so you can either queue in with other players or take your full squad in with you. The recommended power level is 1300, so you’ll need to put in some work to get there, but once you have, it’s time to get stuck into Destiny 2’s new activity.
Launch Override: Europa
To begin Europa, you’ll need to head to the left-hand side of the H.E.L.M area. From this location, you can launch Override as many times as you like. It’s also worth repeating, as it comes with its own set of Weekly Challenges.
Kill Vex and deposit Data Motes
Once you’ve loaded into Europa, you’ll need to Splice the Vex Terminal, which the game will guide you to. After that, you have three minutes to take down as many Vex as you can and pick up the dropped Data Motes.
Once the doorway into the network opens up, head on through and take out the Champion for a big pile of Motes that will fill up a large chunk of the progress bar. Once enough Data Motes have been deposited, this objective will be complete.
Override the Terminal
Once the terminal has been overloaded with Data Motes, you’ll need to hack the terminal. Glowing cubes will appear around the terminal, so destroy them and platforms will appear. Climb on these platforms to hack the terminal.
You’ll need to compete the above steps three times.
Defeat the Subjugated Mind Vex boss
Once you’ve successfully overridden the Terminal three times, you’ll be tasked with taking down the Subjugated Mind Vex boss. On the way to him, you’ll need to do some platforming, dodging lasers in a Tron-like area.
Once you’ve navigated through this area, you’ll reach the Subjugated Mind boss. With a massive hitbox, he’s relatively simple to take out but make sure to keep your distance and be mindful of the additional enemies, or “Adds.”
For every third of his health you take away, he’ll become immune to damage. To fix this, destroy the floating cubes, as they provide him with his shield. You can also pick up a Data Spike dropped by the Scytale Add and deposit it in a terminal to further weaken the Subjugated Mind.
Once he’s defeated, you’ve completed Override: Europa! If you’ve powered up your Splicer Gauntlet, you’ll be able to open a special chest for a reward.
