Destiny 2 Riptide Mission Walkthrough

For the most part of the Destiny 2 Riptide mission you need to follow the mission marker. There are numerous platforming sequences to contend with, so be careful you don’t underestimate the jump. Your best option is to jump then double jump late on if you think you’re not going to make it.

The Shrieker

One of the tricky parts of the Riptide mission in Destiny 2 is the Hive Shrieker. This is immune to attacks other than those to its exposed core, so focus on those. The Shrieker has a high rate of damage, so avoid it’s attacks by moving behind cover. If you’re caught in the open it can damage you very quickly.

The Cursed Thrall Bridge

When you come across a large bridge stretching into the distance, prepare for an onslaught of enemies. The bridge becomes flooded by Cursed Thrall, which are an even more unpleasant version of the normal Thrall. Stay back and pick them off from a safe distance as quickly as possible. If you aim straight down the middle of them you shoul

d be able to use your gun’s recoil to move up the targets automatically.

Fixing the Pistons

After you’ve made it to the switch to restore power you’ll be told that it hasn’t worked and you’ll need to sort out the convertors. This sends you on a mission to investigate and what you find isn’t pleasant. The pistons have been clogged up with hive secretions (lovely!), so you’re tasked with clearing this hardened gunk.

Once again, follow the mission marker and when you see the gunked over pistons simple give the area a couple of bashes with a melee attack. The substance will break off and the pistons will move once again.

The Wizard

Right at the end of the Riptide mission in Destiny 2 you’ll come across a wizard. This is a deadly foe, and you’ll notice it has an orange shield. Use a solar weapon (one with the fire icon) and you’ll rip through that wizard in no time at all.

With the wizard down and all the other enemies in the area pretty easy to defeat, all that’s left is to press the final switch and complete the mission.
