Sever is an activity introduced in the Season of the Haunted. It is a series of missions that follow the seasonal story. They take place on the Derelict Leviathan, and have players working to deal with the Nightmares haunting Crow, Commander Zavala, and Empress Caiatl. Players will need to progress through the Bound in Sorrow quest to unlock new missions. Missions are initially time-gated, unlocking weekly as the season and quest progresses.

Calus Bobbleheads and Calus Automatons can be found in these missions.


Players will move through the underbelly of the Derelict Leviathan, placing Ritual Amplifiers. They will mainly encounter Scorn and Cabal enemies, including Nightmares. This culminates in the severance ritual, where the player will fight a Nightmare boss. An Avaricious Treasurer enemy will also appear during every boss fight, granting additional minor rewards when killed.

Puzzle mechanics that appear in these missions were previously seen in the Presage mission in the Season of the Chosen. This includes shooting electric fuses, pulling levers, and shooting Egregore spores to pass through forcefields. The Wrench relic also makes several appearances.
