Enemy-specific ingredients are oddly some of the toughest to come by during The Dawning 2023 in Destiny 2. Thankfully, the best way to get Null Taste follows a similar pattern to ingredients like it. Here’s how to not only get it but farm it to make the most of your time.

How to Get Null Taste During The Dawning 2023 in Destiny 2

You get Null Taste by defeating enemies with Void damage. The damage can come from any source, weapon, or ability. The only requirement is that you’re the one to defeat the enemy. The problem is how rare the material is, something I’ve seen first-hand. I’ve defeated hundreds and hundreds of trash mobs across Strikes, Dungeons, Lost Sectors, and more, and I can only boast about a dozen instances of Null Taste.

Sadly, there’s no way to guarantee you get Null Taste during The Dawning 2023 — or any enemy-specific ingredient. No matter how you defeat an enemy, you have a chance to get at least three or four possible ingredients, and it seems like Null Taste and other such materials have a lower priority than weapon or ability-specific ones.

There are a few ways to get more ingredients per minute, and there are setups you can use to increase your chances at Null Taste. However, farming a lot of it for baking cookies is still a grind.

How to Farm Null Taste in Destiny 2

There are three things you need to farm Null Taste: lots of enemies, a fully Void loadout, and patience. I’ll cover where to get the first two here, but I can’t help you with the last one.

Best Enemy Farms for Null Taste During The Dawning 2023

Whenever I think about needing to have tons of infinitely spawning enemies in Destiny 2, two activities come to mind. For free-to-play Guardians, Atlars of Sorrow on the Moon remains by far the best pick. Tons of weak, base-power Hive in an activity that lasts as long as you and the other players in the area allow it to.

For those who want to invest some real-world money into Destiny 2, I’ll never not recommend the Grasp of Avarice Dungeon opening encounter. Available to owners of the 30th Anniversary Pack, the opening encounter of Grasp has an even easier enemy farm. All you need to do is clear the first wave of Fallen and Hive, then stand near the Hive pillar and look into the cave. Thrall and Acolytes will continue to spawn for as long as you’re willing to stand there.

I hate to say it, but my last and most generic answer for enemy farms remains the Vanguard Ops playlist. There’s no better way to add just a little bit of variety to the mundanity of grinding Null Taste. The various Battleground activities seem to be prioritized over classic Strikes (in my experience anyway), and those have much higher enemy density. Strikes have the advantage of also offering tons of easy Essence of Dawning, so despite my disdain for repeating myself, they remain probably the best overall way to get Null Taste and make progress elsewhere.

There’s one final way to (maybe) get Null Taste: the Bountiful Harvest upgrade from Eva. It will cost you 35 Dawning Spirit, but having the upgrade makes all Dawning bounties award a second Ingredient when you turn them in. The ingredient you get is entirely random, but you can get Null Taste as a reward if you’re lucky.

Hopefully, you do get lucky, though you only need Null Taste for a single recipe — Dark Chocolate Motes — so it isn’t the most sought-after ingredient out there. But if you need it, that’s how to get Null Taste. We’ve also covered how to find Vex Milk, Perfect Taste, Balanced Flavors, and more in our Destiny 2 guides hub.
