Lost Sectors are instanced Sectors that are overrun by enemies. As the player progresses through the Lost Sector, they will eventually encounter a boss enemy guarding a locked orange chest. Defeating the boss will give the player its cache code, allowing the chest to be opened to obtain its rewards. Lost Sectors will often have a path near the boss that loops back to the entrance. Leaving and re-entering the Lost Sector will respawn the enemies and allow more rewards to be earned.
Lost Sectors are marked on a destination's map by a unique symbol. This symbol will also appear in the environment near the entrance to the Lost Sector, hinting at its location. Hovering over a Lost Sector's icon on the map will display its name. If the Lost Sector has not been completed on the current character, the map icon will be colored white. Completing it will cause the icon to become greyed out.
Legend and Master Difficulty
There are two elective difficulty levels for Lost Sectors: Legend and Master. Each difficulty level adds Champion enemies to the Lost Sector, as well as other modifiers. Equipment is locked, preventing the player from changing their loadout during the activity. Players will only have a limited number of revives. One revive token is granted when killing a Champion or Lightbearer Hive enemy. However, players will lose all of their revives after 15 minutes. Additional modifiers may vary depending on the types of enemies encountered.
A Lost Sector must be completed at least once in the patrol area before it can be played on a higher difficulty. Only some Lost Sectors have higher difficulty versions, and only one of these will be available on each day. The current Legend/Master Lost Sector rotates daily, in a specific order that changes with each Season.
The daily Lost Sector will be marked with an icon on the destination map, as long as the player has completed the Lost Sector on normal difficulty and is at a high enough Power Level. The higher difficulty levels are accessed by interacting with a banner outside of the Lost Sector entrance. The banner also displays information regarding what Champion and shield types will appear, which modifiers will be applied, and possible rewards. If the character is not at the required Power Level, or has not completed the Lost Sector at least once, the map icon and banner will not appear.
If completed solo, Legend and Master Lost Sectors can reward Exotic armor for specific inventory slots. The armor slot that can be dropped rotates daily, in the following order: Helmets, Leg Armor, Gauntlets, and Chest Armor. This information is shown on the banner outside the Lost Sector, as well as its map icon. There are also exclusive Exotic armor items that can only be obtained from completing Legend and Master Lost Sectors solo. Completing a Lost Sector with a Platinum rating, killing all Champions that spawn before opening the boss cache, will grant the greatest possible chance to earn rewards.
The following is the current Lost Sector rotation for the Season of the Witch. The daily Legend/Master Lost Sector rotates in the following order:
- Sepulcher (Savathûn's Throne World)
- Extraction (Savathûn's Throne World)

Exclusive Exotic Armor Items
These Exotic armor items can only be obtained as random drops from solo Legend and Master Lost Sector completions, or from the Vex Strike Force Public Event in Neomuna. In order for an armor item to drop, players must own the annual expansion tied to that item's Season of release.
Exotic armor will only drop for the player character's current class. The type of armor that will drop is determined by the daily armor slot rotation. Lost Sectors use a knockout system, prioritizing items that the player does not have unlocked in Collections. Once obtained and added to Collections, they will be added to the Exotic Engram loot pool and can be obtained as drops from other activities and sources.
