Battleground: Foothold is an Arena introduced in the Season of the Chosen. It was originally part of the Battlegrounds playlist.

With the release of The Witch Queen, and the removal of the Season of the Chosen content, it is now only available through the Vanguard Ops playlist as a randomly-chosen Strike. It cannot be launched as a mission directly from the Director. The version from the Battlegrounds playlist with Champion enemies is also not available.

  • This mission's name was originally Battleground: Cleansing. Its name was changed in Version[1], along with the War Table weekly challenge, due to potential antisemitic connotations.[2]
