Destiny 2 season of the splicer override

Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer has added plenty of new content for Guardians to sink their teeth into, including the new Override activity, so here’s how to complete it and defeat the Vex boss.

The latest Season of Bungie’s free-to-play action MMO, Destiny 2, is here and brings a ton of content to explore. Not only has the classic Vault of Glass Raid returned, but there are also new exotic weapons to do battle with, and a fresh Battle Pass to grind out.

Alongside this new content comes a new mode, Override, in which six Guardians are tasked with infiltrating the Vex network and bringing it down. The new mode can be quite tough, so here’s everything you need to know about the first Override activity – Europa.

How to compete Override: Europa in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer

Override: Europa will require six-person teams, so you can either queue in with other players or take your full squad in with you. The recommended power level is 1300, so you’ll need to put in some work to get there, but once you have, it’s time to get stuck into Destiny 2’s new activity.

Launch Override: Europa

To begin Europa, you’ll need to head to the left-hand side of the H.E.L.M area. From this location, you can launch Override as many times as you like. It’s also worth repeating, as it comes with its own set of Weekly Challenges.

Kill Vex and deposit Data Motes

Once you’ve loaded into Europa, you’ll need to Splice the Vex Terminal, which the game will guide you to. After that, you have three minutes to take down as many Vex as you can and pick up the dropped Data Motes.

Once the doorway into the network opens up, head on through and take out the Champion for a big pile of Motes that will fill up a large chunk of the progress bar. Once enough Data Motes have been deposited, this objective will be complete.

Override the Terminal

Once the terminal has been overloaded with Data Motes, you’ll need to hack the terminal. Glowing cubes will appear around the terminal, so destroy them and platforms will appear. Climb on these platforms to hack the terminal.

You’ll need to compete the above steps three times.

Defeat the Subjugated Mind Vex boss

Once you’ve successfully overridden the Terminal three times, you’ll be tasked with taking down the Subjugated Mind Vex boss. On the way to him, you’ll need to do some platforming, dodging lasers in a Tron-like area.

Once you’ve navigated through this area, you’ll reach the Subjugated Mind boss. With a massive hitbox, he’s relatively simple to take out but make sure to keep your distance and be mindful of the additional enemies, or “Adds.”

For every third of his health you take away, he’ll become immune to damage. To fix this, destroy the floating cubes, as they provide him with his shield. You can also pick up a Data Spike dropped by the Scytale Add and deposit it in a terminal to further weaken the Subjugated Mind.

Once he’s defeated, you’ve completed Override: Europa! If you’ve powered up your Splicer Gauntlet, you’ll be able to open a special chest for a reward.

When does Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end and Season 15 start?

With Season of the Splicer well underway, we need to start looking ahead to Season 15 and what bungie may have planned for Destiny players.

Published

destiny 2 season 15

Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion continued with the launch of Season of the Splicer, but Season 15 will be here before we know it. Here’s everything we know about the next season of Destiny 2 so far.

Season of the Splicer has proven to be a bit of bumper season for Destiny 2 with some ground-breaking features added to the game. The long-awaited and promised Transmog has finally debuted in Destiny 2 with players now encouraged to hoard all the Synthstrand, Synthcord, and Synthweave to do so.

Not only that, but we also saw the return of the first-ever Destiny Raid – Vault of Glass. The season as a whole carried on from where Season of the Chosen left off by adding more Weekly Challenges and providing regular updates, and we expect all of this to continue in Season 15.

When will Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end?

Each season of Destiny is a lengthy one, typically lasting three months in total. Bungie has given no sign that Season of the Splicer is going to be any different.

With this in mind, we can expect the latest season of Destiny 2 to finish up on August 24. With many more Weekly Challenges and extra content to be drip-fed into the game, Guardians still have a lot more cool stuff to look forward to.

When will Destiny 2 Season 15 start?

As usual, unless Bungie has something gigantic planned or has severe issues with their services, the downtime will be minimal at best.

So Guardians can expect to gear up and take to the terrain on either the same day that the Season finishes – August 24 – or at a push August 25.

Crossplay finally coming to Destiny 2 Season 15

Originally announced in the February 25, 2021 Bungie blog update, crossplay will finally be landing in Destiny 2 which will be music to the ears of many.

When discussing some future content updates such as the Witch Queen being pushed back to 2022, the team talked about how Crossplay would be implemented.

Crossplay is coming to the masses in Season 15. We’ll be doing some internal rollouts and alpha tests in Season 14 to prepare for a widespread launch this fall. With Crossplay, you’ll be able to play with all your friends no matter what platform you call home.

And don’t worry, we won’t be matching console and PC players together in the Crucible unless PC players specifically invite their console friends to play with them in the PC Crucible pools.” 

Other major features in Destiny 2 Season 15

In the same blog post, the team also dropped some additional info regarding changes they hope to make happen in Season 15.

Here are the proposed Destiny 2 Season 15 changes:

  • “We will be addressing “three-peeking” in Trials and Competitive. In these modes, emotes will be disabled and players will be unable to pull out any third person weapon that doesn’t have ammo
  • We are also looking at universal adjustments to Stasis by increasing damage reduction when frozen to provide more survivability for the victim
  • We will also focus on Light subclasses and release a set of targeted buffs to our most underutilized specializations
  • We will also be looking to adjust overall ability usage rates to make sure guns and gunplay are always key to success in the Crucible
  • We will introduce our first round of Legendary Stasis Energy and Power weapons”

As we start getting closer to the Season’s official unveiling, we’ll be able to update this page with crucial and essential information.
