Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s Season of the Chosen continues to improve how Guardians focus gear drops with the Hammer of Proving Ritual Artifact.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light rotates its seasonal content every few months, giving Guardians new activities to participate in while awarding gear to build up their arsenal. Season of the Chosen is no different and introduces new ways for Guardians to forge and claim their rewards. Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen continues to improve the way Guardians focus their loot drops, aiding in finding those god-rolled gear pieces.
Season of the Chosen introduces the Hammer of Proving, a Cabal Ritual Artifact used to gain rewards from Season of the Chosen’s Battlegrounds activity. The Hammer of Proving is needed for Guardians who want to get the most out of Season of the Chosen. Enhancing the Hammer of Proving will make Guardians more efficient at smashing open Cabal Tribute Chests during the Battlegrounds activity.
Once players have gained the Hammer of Proving, they can find an enhancement menu on the War Table at the H.E.L.M., a new destination in Season of the Chosen. The Hammer of Proving enhancement menu is broken down into three levels: Enhancement 1, Enhancement 2, and Enhancement 3. Each level has the same set of enhancements, increasing in effectiveness as they are upgraded.
Destiny 2 Guardians may notice that many of the enhancements require a previous one to be unlocked, with the Tribute Chest 1 Enhancement being the first available to unlock. Tribute Chest 1 requires Guardians to increase their War Table Reputation Rank before it can be unlocked.
Guardians trying to increase their War Table Reputation Rank will need to complete the new Seasonal Challenges found in the Quests menu, or the Season menu at the in-game Director. There are currently three Seasonal Challenges in the Week 1 tab that award War Table Reputation. Guardians only need to complete one of these challenges to gain a War Table Rank, and unlock access to the Tribute Chest 1 Hammer Enhancement.
Once Guardians have completed and turned in a challenge that awards War Table Reputation, they may unlock the Tribute Chest 1 Hammer Enhancement, which gives Guardians one Cabal Gold when smashing a Tribute Chest in the Battlegrounds activity. When the first enhancement is unlocked, Guardians will want to continue completing the Seasonal Challenges that award War Table Reputation to increase their War Table Rank. Each new War Table Rank allows Guardians to purchase another Hammer Enhancement, with each unlocking access to even more.
After the Tribute Chest 1 Hammer of Proving Enhancement is unlocked, Guardians may unlock the remaining enhancements in any order they choose, keeping in mind that some require other enhancements as pre-requisites. Enhancing the Hammer of Proving will be a helpful part in smashing as many Cabal Tribute Chests as possible.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
