How Attunement Works in Destiny 2 Into the Light

If you want the most efficient farm for loot in Destiny 2 Into the Light, you need to understand Attunement.

Want the best weapon rolls in Destiny 2 Into the Light? Well, then, you’ll need to know how the Attunement system works. Thankfully, it’s a straightforward mechanic with only a single slightly confusing bit at its beginning. Once you understand attunement, farming god rolls of any member of the BRAVE Arsenal is a sinch.

Attunement itself is easy to understand. When you’re attuned to a specific weapon via the Hall of Heroes social space, you have a much higher chance of getting that specific weapon to drop from loot chests in the Onslaught mode. That’s it. In other words, if you want to try and recreate The Recluse from years ago, simply attune to it at the Hall of Champions and play any version of Onslaught until you get a loot chest.

Here’s the kicker, though. You can’t attune any weapons in the BRAVE Arsenal off the bat. Instead, you need to complete the introductory quest Feats of Bravery, then complete that weapon’s unlock quest, which you get from Arcite-99-40, the robot vendor in the Hall of Champions.

Completing the attunement quest gives you a fully Masterworked, gilded, and curated roll version of the weapon in question. These quests aren’t hard, though they can be a bit annoying with the amount of kills you need to get, or the type, or both.

Once complete, however, you can approach any of the available Shaxx holograms near the Hall’s entrance and attune your Onslaught chests to that weapon. Note: You need to deactivate your current attunement to choose a new attunement target.

Weapon unlock quests only ask you to do one of two tasks, usually defeating a specific number of enemies in a specific way or in a specific activity. Depending on the type of weapon you’re using, you might only need a few dozen kills, whereas others require hundreds. As far as I can tell, you also need to be the one who actually gets the kill; you can’t just assist. I know some of my fireteam spend a frankly ridiculous amount of time on The Recluse quest, and the one for the Succession Sniper is just rude.

In any event, with a weapon unlocked via the quest and attuned, every loot chest you open in the new Onslaught mode has a much higher chance of dropping it. You’ll want to do the harder 50-round variant for the best possible farm, but as that version of the activity is not matchmade, you will need a fireteam.
