Destiny 2 cryo pod public event (2)

Destiny 2: Forsaken is finally here, and with it comes a whole host of new activities and people to shoot in the face with an explosive arrow from a high-tech bow. I love this weapon, I want to have babies with it. Anyway, one of the new activities that you can experience in Forsaken? A brand new public event on the Tangled Shore called Cryo-Pod.

The event at its most basic level seems easy enough: A Red Legion cryo-pod holding a wanted Cabal fugitive is about to open, and you’ll need to first clear the area of two waves of enemies before you can face the big bad inside and dispense some justice. That alone is challenging enough, but what if you wanted to make the event even more difficult?

Well then you’re going to need to trigger the public event. Activate the Heroic Trigger that is, in case you’re feeling suicidal. To do so, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  • Clear out the two waves of Red Legion
  • Begin attacking the Cabal commander
  • When a certain amount of damage has been applied, the cryo-pod will begin venting its gas
  • Be careful, the gas does damage
  • Check the side of the pod for a vent and shoot it
  • You’ll then be able to grab a core, which can be thrown at the fugitive boss
  • Repeat this process until you freeze the fugitive, creating a circle that you must enter
  • Stand in the circle, fight off the hordes and the fugitive will be recovered eventually

Easier said than done this early in Forsaken, but well worth the effort if you want to grab some of the sweetest loot in the Tangled Shore and earn some kudos from Spider. Plus it’s a great way to earn Ghost fragments, which is essential for taking on new bounties across the solar system. How about some quid pro quo before you go?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
