Destiny 2 Swift Destruction is the challenge for the Acquisition encounter in the Vow of the Disciple raid. Destiny 2 likes to make life just a little bit harder for raiders, with the promise of an extra reward. The Acquisition encounter is the first one of the raid, so a good one to get out of the way early. For everything on how to complete it, here is our guide to Destiny 2 Swift Destruction: how to complete the Acquisition challenge.

  • The Vow of the Disciple raid has arrived to give Guardians their newest challenge. We have all the tips you need to conquer this raid and defeat Rhulk in our Destiny 2 Vow of the Disciple raid guide.

Destiny 2 Swift Destruction: Rules Of The Challenge

Destiny 2 Swift Destruction: Rules of the challenge

Swift Destruction is another thankfully straightforward challenge in the Vow of the Disciple raid. You can check out our guide linked above for full details, but the general gist of how the encounter works is you have three obelisks with symbols on them, and the team must determine which symbols they need to shoot. There are a lot of enemies in the arena, including some Unstoppable Abomination champions.

The challenge is pretty simple, you need to kill all three Unstoppable Abominations within a very short space of time, seemingly about five seconds. So long as no champion survives another more than a couple of seconds, the challenge will be completed. It is worth noting that the challenge is not to kill the champions, but that if you do, you must kill them all quickly. It is entirely possible to complete this encounter having not killed any of the champions at all and still complete the challenge.

  • If you need a good hand cannon for this challenge, there are few better than Hawkmoon. Check out our guide on Destiny 2 Hawkmoon: how to get Hawkmoon after Witch Queen.

Destiny 2 Swift Destruction: Strategy For The Challenge

Destiny 2 Swift Destruction: Strategy for the encounter

This challenge is fairly simple, but there are a couple of ways you can go about it. First and foremost, you need coordination. This part of the raid is very heavily focused on teamwork and sharing information, so really the challenge is to deal with the champions without confusing your team and messing up the encounter. Before any of that, you need a weapon to stun the champion. Something like a hand cannon with the Unstoppable Round perk equipped, so you can lock down the Unstoppable Abomination and keep the heat off until you are ready.

To kill all three at once, you need at least three people ready and capable of taking them down quickly. Picking your moment is crucial, you need to make sure you will not be overlapping with callouts of symbols. A good idea would be to wait until the symbols are in, and the obelisk accepts your offering, then quickly coordinate taking out the champions.

 

Alternatively, you could use Unstoppable Rounds to keep the champions stunned for the whole encounter. It is a bit cumbersome and frankly, it would be easier to just wipe them out, but it is a viable strategy. You need someone to keep an eye on each of the champions, stunning them regularly and keeping them out of the way.

Regardless, so long as you complete this encounter and have not killed any of the Unstoppable Champions without killing them all quickly, you will complete the challenge and grab yourself some extra loot.

That is everything you need to do to complete the Destiny 2 Swift Destruction challenge in the Vow of the Disciple raid. For more raid challenge tips, why not check out our guide for the Destiny 2 Caretaker challenge.
