Destiny 2: Beyond Light – Eclipsed Zone (Location & How it Works)

The Eclipsed Zone is a challenge area in Destiny 2: Beyond Light that changes weekly and gives players a special buff. Some quests are completed here.

Players have likely noticed there is a lot of content in Destiny 2‘s Beyond Light expansion. For the last few weeks, players have had an opportunity to explore Europa and defeat Eramis and her lieutenants. Developer Bungie has also dropped some new events and powerful Exotic Weapons for players to work toward. After the most recent Deep Stone Crypt Raid event took place, players can have their Guardian continuing to work with two NPCs, Variks and the Exo Stranger. They also have the opportunity to participate in a weekly event with new challenges and buffs called the Eclipsed Zone.

Destiny 2 Guardians looking to complete Sabotage mission for Variks the Loyal need to find the Eclipsed Zone location every week. Many of these Sabotage missions involve collecting materials, completing tasks such as Public Events, Lost Sectors, and other staple Destiny 2 tasks. To find the location each week, Guardians will need to keep a close eye on the map of Planet Europa.

The Eclipsed Zone’s location changes each week starting on Tuesday. When a player is in an active Eclipsed area, they will receive special buffs and quests and will need to pay attention to falling debris in the location. The Eclipsed Zone is especially important for players looking to complete Sabotages from Variks or quests from the Exo Stranger, as these will often have activities that are specifically tied to the area. Here’s how to find the Eclipsed Zone each week in Destiny 2: Beyond Light and what to do once the Guardian gets there.

Because the location of the Eclipsed Zone in Beyond Light changes, players will need to keep an eye on their maps every Tuesday to find the next one. On the map, players will need to look for the text that reads Europa. Below this, they can see the area that is the current active Eclipsed Zone. There, they will receive a Stasis Regeneration buff, allowing their Stasis abilities to recharge more quickly while they are in the Eclipsed Zone.

While in the Eclipsed Zone, particularly when working for Variks or the Exo Stranger, players will likely need to complete tasks such as killing enemies, completing Patrols or Heroic Public Events, or gathering materials. Players may also need to find Lost Sectors in any of these locations. Players can patrol the designated space until they find enemies they need to get rid of. Most of these enemies tend to spawn at their ‘usual’ spots. For example, one in Asterion Abyss regularly spawns near the Concealed Void Lost Sector in Destiny 2. If Guardians have killed all of the enemies temporarily, they should circle back to give them a chance to spawn again.

Players may also want to pick up a Braytech Transponder prior to heading toward the Eclipsed Zone for the week. Braytech Transponders can be purchased once per week from Variks for 50 Herealways Pieces and will cause an enemy called the House of Salvation Techno Squad Leader to spawn in the Eclipsed Zone. This is a yellow-bar enemy, and finding and defeating him gives players a 3x Scanner buff. This is used to help the player kill three swarms of drones in the Eclipsed Zone, after which they will be rewarded a chest with a legendary Europa item and a Triumph. The Scanner buff allows players to see the colonies of drones, which are otherwise well-hidden, one at a time to defeat them.
