Originally, Bergusia Forge was only meant to be unlocked for Destiny 2 players by completion of a unique puzzle in the Niobe Labs Forge, but Bungie has now forgone this and unlocked the new mission for everyone. In this Destiny 2 Bergusia Forge guide, we’ll be walking you through not only how to unlock the Bergusia Forge for yourself, but also how to complete the Forge once you’re in the thick of it.
But if you instead need any other details on what’s to come yet for Bungie’s FPS sequel, you’ll want to head over to our complete Destiny 2 DLC guide. Here you can find all the information for what’s left in the Season of the Forge, and what’s yet to come in the Season of the Drifter.
Destiny 2 Bergusia Forge Guide
Firstly, we mentioned that Bergusia Forge has been unlocked by Bungie for all Destiny 2 players. The developer deemed the puzzle in the Niobe Labs a little too difficult to complete, and after an elite team of streamers couldn’t complete the puzzle in Niobe Labs after 24 hours of trying, Bungie decided to automatically unlock the new Forge for all players.
To reach Bergusia Forge, you can find it in the EDZ, in the very southernmost point of the entire region. Note that the Forge recommends a power level of 650 in order to undertake it, which is the current maximum power level that you can actually rise to in Destiny 2. This isn’t confirmed, but we also suspect you’ll need to have completed all prior Forges (Volundr, Gofannon, and Niobe Labs), in order to unlock the final Bergusia Forge.
So, once you’re actually in Bergusia Forge, it’s one of the toughest missions in all of Destiny 2. As you can see in the full gameplay footage just below, Bergusia Forge basically functions as a far tougher version of the three previous Forge missions. There are three waves of enemies in Bergusia Forge, and you’ll need to kill glowing blue enemies as quickly as possible, pick up the batteries that they drop, and throw them at the central Forge point in order to advance to the next wave.
Once you’ve done two waves of throwing 20 batteries into the central Forge, the big boss of Bergusia Forge will arrive. This comes in the form of a Fallen tank, so be prepared to equip some single fire, accurate, and powerful weapons. Sniper rifles can be ideal for taking apart the legs of the tank quickly, as can scout rifles and hand cannons. Simply focus your fire on one leg of the tank until it’s down, then shoot the central glowing orange section of the behemoth. Rinse and repeat until the Fallen tank is down for good.
As it’s one of the toughest missions in all of Destiny 2, with a power level recommendation of 650, Bergusia Forge offers some pretty good rewards. It’s possible to obtain multiple Prime/Exotic Engrams in one completion from the Forge, making it one of the best activities to undertake when the maximum power level in Destiny 2 increases later in 2019, with the Season of the Drifter.
