Destiny 2: Season of Plunder Week 5 Challenges

Destiny 2

Destiny 2: Season of Plunder is now in its fifth week, and with it comes a new set of weekly seasonal challenges for you to try to complete.

Some challenges are pretty easy, like killing Guardians in Crucible. Others, like Seeker’s Cache II, require you to solve a series of increasingly hard puzzles.

This week’s challenges are easier than last week’s because there are only seven seasonal challenges. However, several of the challenges give Challenger XP++, which is a big boost over regular XP.

Destiny 2: Antiquarian V

Return the fifth relic to the H.E.L.M.

Defeat powerful Fallen. Greater powerful enemies give more experience.

Relic placed
Powerful Fallen 0%
Rewards: Repute, Challenger XP+

This phase requires you to complete the Sails of the Shipstealer weekly quest steps to obtain the Relic. Return the Relic to the H.E.L.M. and set it on the table opposite the seasonal Star Chart with the weekly Relics.

Destiny 2: Seeker’s Cache II

Decipher the Medium Treasure Beacon, which is accessible via the Star Chart in the H.E.L.M.

Crewmates summoned 0/20
Medium Treasure Beacon
Rewards: Repute, Challenger XP+

Seeker’s Cache II, like Seeker’s Cache I from the week 2 seasonal challenges, demands you to solve a series of pirate-themed puzzles across the system in pursuit of buried wealth. You can begin the Cryptic Quatrain II Questline if you have obtained the Medium Treasure Beacon.

Destiny 2: Resist and Revolt

Acquire Cry Mutiny.

Grenade Launcher
Rewards: Challenger XP++, Bright Dust

You must attain Rank 16 in Crucible, Gambit, or Vanguard to obtain the Season of Plunder ritual weapon, Cry Mutiny. While this task can be difficult to complete, keep an eye out for double XP weekends, as they can help speed up the leveling process significantly.

Destiny 2: Oh Captain

Defeat Cabal and Fallen bosses in strikes or Vanguard playlists.

Cabal bosses 0/5
Fallen boss defeated 0/5
Rewards: Challenger XP++, Bright Dust

This phase can be achieved fast by running specific strikes, but if you’re feeling patient, you can complete it simply by running strikes from the Vanguard playlist on a regular basis.

Expert Expedition II

In Expedition, gather treasure into the treasure haul and defeat Champions.

Treasure collected 0/25
Champions 0/5
Rewards: Challenger XP

This is a straight-forward challenge. Boot up Expedition, find treasure, and beat the Champion at the end of the Expedition.


Defeat targets with Scout Rifles and Shatter Damage

Defeat Ketchcrash fighters and Guardians give additional bonus progress.

Scout Rifle 0%
Stasis 0%
Rewards: Challenger XP+

Why not choose Scout Rifles and Stasis damage? With a Perses-D Scout Rifle, you can take on this challenge.


Eliminate Crucible Guardians. Arc or Stasis-killed foes earn bonus progress.

Guardians 0%
Rewards: Challenger XP++, Bright Dust

This is a rather simple challenge. Guardian, fire up the Crucible and destroy!

That sums up the Week 5 challenge. For other guides, tips and tricks, you can check it here.
