Since Bungie introduced harder difficulty Legend and Master Lost Sectors into its core game, players have been eager to take part in these activities to farm exotic armor (when completed solo) or increase their Guardian’s power level.
Each Legend Lost Sector contains Champions, enemies that would typically appear during high-level raids, dungeons and Nightfall strikes. As these Champions can damage allies and break shields, stun weapons should be preferred when engaging these opponents.

Destiny 2 players have had the chance to acquire unique Exotics during The Witch Queen season that cannot be obtained via Xur or from the world loot pool, such as Mask of Bakris, Dawn Chorus, Precious Scars, Necrotic Grip, and Icefall Mantle. One way to unlock these rare pieces is through running Legend and Master Lost Sectors solo at higher Power Level than normal daily reset events – an effective way of testing one’s Guardian skills!
To access Legend or Master Lost Sectors, look for an icon on the map indicating an increase in difficulty. Their locations can change daily but have previously appeared on Europa and Cosmodrome. Upon reaching these areas, a flag will appear which players can interact with to launch into Legend or Master versions of Lost Sectors – although these sectors won’t provide as rigorous an endgame challenge as Grandmaster Nightfall or Master Raids do!
Legend and Master Lost Sectors can present players with tougher Champion enemies, along with modifiers like elemental burn and an increased chance of encountering frozen foes. In order to outwit such foes, it’s important to come prepared with anti-barrier mods like Anti-Barrier Champion Mod and Unstoppable Champion Mod; additionally armor drops for these sectors may not always be guaranteed, requiring multiple runs before finding armor drops that suit you.
Legend or Master Lost Sector rewards may not compare to those found in regular Nightfall or Master Raid encounters, but are still well worth your while. Not only may exotics drop from this quest line; there’s also the possibility that special Foundry Weapons might appear.
Due to the time and energy it takes to collect rare items, some Guardians find it challenging to reach their desired Power Level. Our Sherpas can assist Guardians who need assistance by running Lost Sectors repeatedly until we receive what they desire – such as an item.

Legend and Master Lost Sectors have quickly become one of the best ways for players to quickly level up and acquire Exotic armor since their debut in Season of the Witch. Daily activities on EDZ and Nessus offer these high-level challenges that give Powerful and Pinnacle Engrams as rewards, and offer exclusive Foundry weapons – with players at recommended Power Level being eligible to tackle these higher difficulty activities.
Legend and Master Lost Sector variants present an added level of difficulty when compared with regular Lost Sectors, as well as offering special mission modifiers that alter enemy encounters and increase chances for Exotic drops at run’s end. Furthermore, defeating all Champions increases your chance of an exclusive Foundry weapon dropping with special perks!
Legend and Master Lost Sectors require strong fireteams in order to succeed, in addition to increasing difficulty. Guardians can upgrade their gear with mods effective against such opponents; weapons equipped with Thread of Propagation can pierce Barrier Champions’ shields and destroy them, while weapons equipped with Headstone Perk or Chill Clip may reduce their damage resistance or freeze their bodies temporarily, thus rendering these enemies impassable.
Players should pay close attention to the rewards tooltip on each Legend and Master Lost Sector they complete, which will display rewards such as Exotic armour pieces in random slots (helm, legs or chest) as well as chances to unlock an exclusive Foundry weapon. They may even gain an exotic perk such as Revitalizing Blast which increases weapon’s ability to stun Champion enemies and recharge class abilities when wounded.
As there are no other active methods of farming Exotics in Destiny 2, Legend and Master Lost Sectors have quickly become some of the most beloved activities in the game. While not as rewarding as Grandmaster Nightfall or Master Raid events, their increased Power Level rewards and chance at an Exotic make them well worth your while.
Light Shift Shield
The Light Shift Shield is an exclusive Guardian weapon found only while running Legend Lost Sectors in Destiny 2. These daily activities give Guardians the chance to earn Exotic armor (head, chest and legs), discover weapons with unique perks as well as unlock unique Foundry weapons not found elsewhere in the game.
Each Legend and Master Lost Sector features unique enemies, Champions, and modifiers for Guardians to encounter when entering these zones. As most Champions and Unstoppables appear here, Guardians should prepare an ideal loadout before entering these regions; doing this may include equipping weapons with the Plates Arena perk for increased headseekers and precision bodyshot damage or using Strand subclass which increases shield range and Explosives damage dealt.
Legend and Master Lost Sectors often feature challenging enemies that add an extra challenge to each zone, providing players with a chance to put their skills through the paces and sharpen their gameplay skills. This can help develop and refine players’ gameplay abilities.
These challenges also give Guardians the chance to earn Exotic gear, an incentive that keeps players involved with these events on a daily basis. Each Legend and Master Lost Sector currently provides 25% odds of dropping an Exotic item; additionally, every Lost Sector features unique rewards which players can obtain by participating.
Destiny 2 players should keep an eye on the daily events calendar so they can plan their farming sessions effectively. For instance, those seeking the Exotic Acheron’s Wrath helmet should play that Lost Sector on Legendary difficulty every day that it is offered. Players without time to manage this process themselves may consider hiring a sherpa service provider, who can guarantee you receive gear each run.
Light Shift Armor
Since their introduction with the Beyond Light expansion, Legend and Master Lost Sectors have quickly become a daily must for players looking to farm Exotic armor and weapons while strengthening their Guardian. These higher-level activities provide more structured challenges than standard Lost Sectors as well as offering rare items that cannot be obtained via Xur or normal world loot pools.
Each day, Legend or Master Lost Sector locations and modifiers change for something fresh, giving players an opportunity to gain Exotic gear and boost their Power Level. Although rewards cannot be guaranteed, each run of Legend or Master Lost Sector may yield either Exotic Helmets or Chest Armor which can then be equipped to complete sets.
As much as the rewards may be tempting, completing Legend or Master Lost Sectors requires significant amounts of luck and RNG – especially with regards to legendary armor slots which rotate every four days.
Shacknews has taken steps to make life a little simpler for players by compiling an easy-to-use chart that details which armor and weapon types are available in each Legend or Master Lost Sector on any given day, enabling players to plan out their Loot Runs early and prepare themselves for whatever challenges lie ahead.
Each Legend and Master Lost Sector comes equipped with its own set of armor types as well as its own champion and shield types that are awarded upon completion of a level. These rewards can help prepare players for any of the Champions or modifiers they might encounter such as increasing damage taken (Overcharge), weapon and grenade damage or elemental burn.
As these changes come into effect, it’s essential that players pay close attention to the tooltip of each Legend or Master Lost Sector. It will show an image with “(If Solo) Exotic,” signifying that there may be an opportunity for players to gain the Legendary helmet or chest Armor for that Lost Sector.
