Heroic Adventures

From Destiny 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Heroic Adventures are a PvE Game Mode introduced in the Curse of Osiris expansion which can currently be played only on Mercury and Mars. They are similar to Adventures, but with a higher difficulty as well as the addition of special Modifiers to make the activity more difficult.

All Heroic Adventures on Mercury have a recommended Power Level of 300, and all Heroic Adventures on Mars have a recommended Power Level of 350.


Two Modifiers, which change at each daily rollover, are applied to all Heroic Adventures at once.

Modifier 1

These modifiers, originally made for Nightfall Strikes, make significant changes to overall offense or defense.

  • Momentum: Health and shield regeneration stop when you're not moving. Sprint to speed up regeneration.
  • Attrition: Health and shield regeneration slow down, but killing foes may create wells of Light that restore health and charge your Super.
  • Prism: Attacks matching the periodically rotating focused element do more damage. Other elemental damage is reduced. Incoming damage is unaffected.

Modifier 2

These modifiers, exclusive to Heroic Adventures, generally alter specific means of dealing damage.

  • De-Powered: Kinetic and Energy weapons do more damage and more precision damage. Decreased grenade damage.
  • Elite Soldier: Power weapons and Kinetic weapons deal more damage and reload faster. Your Super charges slower.
  • Elementalist: Energy weapon damage increased. Grenades deal more damage and recharge faster. Melee damage decreased.
  • Risk and Reward: Super, melee, and grenades deal more damage but recharge more slowly.
  • Brawler: Faster melee recharge and health regeneration. Increased Power weapon damage. Slower Super recharge.
  • Justice from Above: Increased jump velocity and airborne acceleration. Your Super recharges faster and deals more damage. Melee recharges slower and deals less damage.
  • From the Shadows: Increased running and crouching speed. Melee recharges faster and deals more damage. Grenades recharge slower.

Reward Mechanics

Players can complete up to three Heroic Adventures a day. However, completing a particular Heroic Adventure makes it unavailable to play again until the next Heroic Adventure reset. Heroic Adventure resets occur at daily rollover (9AM PST / 12PM EST most of the time; 10AM PDT / 1PM EDT during Daylight Savings Time for regions that observe it) on Mondays and Thursdays.

All three of the Adventures on Mercury are available to play as Heroic Adventures. Brother Vance will allow you to claim one Heroic Adventure at a time once all normal Adventures have been completed once and the player has reached the necessary Power Level to become eligible for the activity (290?).
