Destiny 2: How to activate the Heroic Resonant Splinter public event

Destiny 2: The Witch Queen has been released and as well as adding a new story, raid, weapon type, you know, the usual stuff. It wouldn’t be an expansion without at least one new public event on the Throne World. In this guide, we’ll go over how to activate the Echoing Splinter Heroic Public Event in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen. While it’s not incredibly obvious what to do, thankfully, it’s not hard to accomplish. Here’s what you need to know.


How to trigger the Heroic Resonant Splinter public event in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen

So when the Echoing Splinters public event begins in the Witch Queen’s Throne World area, you’ll quickly see what you need to do. Any gamer who has played a game in the last 30 years can spot this type of mission from a mile away: escort search.


You’ll need to stand near the pyramid superweapon as it moves around the map, killing any Scorns that get in your face.


To trigger the Echoing Splinter Heroic public event, you’ll need to pay close attention to the ground after killing the mighty Scorn in the area. The Scorn will drop these orange glowing balls that you can pick up. You will have to launch the balls in the circular part of the pyramidal superweapon that you are escorting.

After you’ve thrown five balls at it before the public event ends, the heroic version will activate. It’s pretty simple to finish the event once you’ve done all of that. All you need to do is kill some Scorn bumps before the time runs out. Easy for a guardian like you.

As always, you’ll get slightly better rewards for completing the event on Heroic, and you’ll also get better progress on any contracts you may have open from Throne World.
