Destiny 2 Skydock IV is a Lost Sector in the EDZ, and one of the best options for farming exotic armour. Destiny 2 regularly adds new exotic weapons and armour, but the only way to get new exotic armour is to complete lost Sectors on Legend or Master difficulty. Skydock IV is an easy one to finish, but it can be difficult to find in the game. Here is what you need to know to complete the Destiny 2 Skydock IV Lost Sector on Master or Legend difficulty.

Destiny 2 Skydock IV: Preparation

As is always the case with Legend Lost Sectors, we have Match Game, Extra Shield and Locked Equipment to deal with. This means your equipment is locked once you begin the Lost Sector, more enemies have shields than usual, and using the wrong elemental type against enemy shields is very ineffective.

We have Unstoppable and Barrier champions here as well, so be sure to have the necessary perks equipped. Incoming Solar damage is increased, so be wary of those Unstoppable Incendiors. Your Strand and Void damage output is increased, alongside increased shotgun damage, so make these things work for you in your build.

To get to the Skydock IV Lost Sector location, go to the EDZ map and go to the top left corner. It is up there underneath the huge Cabal ship. If you have completed it before, you will see the icon for it on your map. If not, simply travel to the Sunken Isles drop zone. Go toward the Cabal ship but stay to the right, and go below the massive ramp.

There is an entrance underneath the ramp, which goes through and out the other side. Go in there, and to your right onto the raised area. The entrance to the Lost Sector will be right in front of you. Complete the normal version once to unlock the Legend difficulty.

There are two ways to complete this Lost Sector, fast and reckless or slower and more methodical. Unlike most Lost Sectors, you do not need to defeat all of the champions in order to get exotics to drop. As such, you can sprint to the end, kill a handful of enemies in the last room, defeat the boss, and open the chest.

This method is very quick and very doable, but it can be risky. You are likely to die a couple of times doing this, which doesn't matter so long as you kill the boss and open the chest. However, you can also take the time to clear the Lost Sector as normal, and it really doesn't take much longer.

It won't take long because Skydock IV is one of the shortest Lost Sectors in the game. You start entering a small room with two regular Cabal enemies and one Unstoppable Incendior. This room is very small, so use the corner at the start as cover. Deal with these enemies, then head down the hole.

Don't drop straight down to the bottom, use the various ledges as you go. This way, you can take out the Psions on the platform below to give you a safe place to drop to. From the lowest ledge in the hole, you will be able to see the enemies down the corridor.

There will be an Unstoppable Incendior which you can take out from there. Be quick about it though, as there is also a Barrier Colossus that spawns in here and it will quickly introduce itself into the fight. Take out the Unstoppable champion from a distance, then drop down into the room to get some cover from the Colossus. You absolutely need Anti-Barrier rounds to deal with them, so make use of whatever weapon you brought for that purpose.

With the champions defeated, there are just a handful of enemies in the room to deal with. Take them out and move on to the final room. There are plenty of ads here, as well as another Unstoppable champion and the boss itself, a super-tough Colossus.

Luckily, you can use the entrance to the room for cover. Hang back, take out enemies from a distance, and clear out the room. Once the room is a bit quieter, move in and focus on the boss. A good damaging super will go a long way here, but otherwise, there isn't much to say except keep shooting things until they die. Simple as that, once the boss is dead you can open the chest and reap your rewards.

That is everything you need to know to complete the Destiny 2 Skydock IV Lost Sector on Legend or Master difficulty. For more on the game, check out our Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares walkthrough.
