Destiny 2: Leviathan Raid Guide

 

So you wanna be a raider? Dig into this guide for the Leviathan detailing how to properly utilize a fireteam.

Start

Run past the standing guards and take the left stairs up. Follow the stairs up and make a right. Go inside the room and take the warp pad up. Make sure you don’t die due to the impact of the fall, use hover, glide, or jump to make the land safely. Enter the Courtyard.

Leviathan Courtyard

In the Leviathan Courtyard there are four doors that will transport you to different parts of the raid. One will take you to the Royal baths, another would take you to the pleasure Gardens, one will take you to the gauntlet, and one would take you to Calus. Each week the encounters of the Raid will be shuffled around so bring up your ghost to give you a hint to where you must head to.

  • Sun door takes you to Royal Baths
  • Chalice (Cup) door takes you to Calus
  • Beasts (Dog) door takes you to the Pleasure Gardens
  • Halberd (Axe) door takes you to the Gauntlet

Once you have reach the designated door numerous enemies will spawn in. I suggest having four players defending this point and having two players searching for a flag. At the designated door will be a silhouette of (Axe, Dog, Sun, Cup [minus the door symbol you are at]). The search team (the two players hunting flags) will then go to the symbol that is silhouette of. There they will kill enemies until a elite enemies spawns in. Aim for his head and backpack for critical damage. (Best to play monkey in the middle). Once he is defeated head back to defending team and place the flag. Repeat this two more times. The defending team will have to survive an onslaught of enemies. Once the search team has captured 1 flag, a new enemy called a Councillor will appear. He is enclosed in a bubble dome and can’t be shot, only melee. Defeat this enemy as quickly as possible to lower the shield on several elite enemies that will attempt to retake your flag. After capturing three flags the door will open and it’s time to move onto the next encounter.

Royal Baths

Split up into two teams of three, a left side team and a right side. two players of each team will stand next to a plate with a floating orb. The remaining player on each team will start in the middle. All four players standing next to a plate will hop on to them while one in the middle stands in the middle plate. If done correctly it will start the encounter, the person in the middle will relieve one member of their team, the relieved member will head to the middle to grab an orb and relieve the other person on the team. Both teams will be doing this simultaneously. Those on plates will have a large fat enemy called a Bather who climbs up from the chain. Use your grenades and power weapon to defeat him quickly. Whoever is picking up an orb in the center should try to clear 1-2 enemies before relieving their teammate to ensure later in this encounter the teams aren’t swamped with enemies. Once several rotations occur, the center chain will lock and its time for all to head to the middle. one person with an ultimate should be on the sides using it to clear the room while the other five shoot the canisters that are hanging. Those firing should focus on one until it breaks then move on. They should also look at their psionic protection if it hits zero switch with the person who is keeping the room clear. After time pass a Councillor will appear at the plate everyone is standing on, avoid being there when he spawns to avoid death. Repeat the steps until all canisters are destroyed.

Pleasure Gardens

In this encounter, roll together in a group killing the enemies to maximize heavy ammo drops for the team. 2 players will then pick up a prism stone. Their goal is to stand in pillars of light and shoot a blossom flower when four players are next to it. There are four flower spots per side (left and right). 1 flower from each side will light up and those with the prism stone must direct the ground team to the spot avoiding the six royal beasts (dogs) that roam the garden. Once the players have 50+ stack of empowering spores everyone should head towards a dog. Each dog will head to a fix location, there players should use grenades, power weapons, and ultimates to fall these beasts. Players don’t have to complete this task in one phase as there are four tries. Defeating all will allow players to head to the next encounter.

The Gauntlet

Split in two teams: two runners and four outside. one runner will be at the dog gate while the other will be on the cup gate. The four other players will pick a gate: dog, sun. cup, axe. Everyone will stand on the raised platforms to make it go down and start the encounter. There are 2 doors at each gate that will spawn enemies several times and once those enemies are defeated a elite enemy with a solar shield will be unleashed. Once they are defeated an orb will appear at dog and cup gate which the runners will pick up at roughly the same time. All the outside player will now stand on the raised platform. The cup and dog outside players will shoot the topmost target while the axe and sun players will shoot the lowest target. The runners inside will see a red outlined hole (top, middle, bottom). Whichever the runners call outs is the one the outside team DOES NOT shoot. Example: Sun top – outside will shoot middle and bottom at the sun gate. The runners will do this for 4 gates until they grab a final orb which will teleport them outside. They will run into the middle and deposited the orb. Repeat this three times. In the second run, there will be holes in the inside for the runners to avoid. During the 3rd run, the outside platforms will rise and fall to make aiming more difficult. After the runners have done the gauntlet three times and have exited the running portion, everyone head to the center where they were depositing orbs. Everyone will grab an orb and run the gauntlet at the same time. Players should be divided into three groups of two: two players to grab the orbs at the 1st and 3rd gate, two to grab the orbs at 2nd and 4th gate, and two to grab an orb at every gate. Those taking an orb at the upcoming gate should call out which one they are taking to ensure everyone grabs an orb that needs to. Avoid dying too quickly or it spells a wipe for the whole team as a person will have to run the entire length of the gauntlet, exit and run towards the fallen comrade all in under 30 seconds.

Calus

First off, split off into 2 groups of 3, an inside team and an outside team. Starting the encounter, 2 members of the inside team will be using their ultimates on each side. (one member using their ultimate on left and one member using their ultimate on the right) One person should toss a grenade in the middle door. After players have defeated the enemies that are spawned in, everyone will be teleported to the shadow realm once Calus claps. The outside team will take an orb and be sent back to the throne room. Make sure the outside team knows which orb they should be picking up, there’s one for each person. Each person of the inside team should see a symbol on shadow Calus’ forehead. Inside team should call out from left to right while shooting bubble Councillors in the air and psions on the ground. The outside team will melee the bubble Councillor that was not called out. This repeats two more times. At the end, the inside team will group up together and shoot skulls that come out of shadow Calus’ mouth to obtain a high damage multiplier. The outside team should pop two ultimates to clear the enemies in the throne room. Once Calus brings his arms in the air, drop a healing rift in the center and drop Calus’ shield 2/3rd of the way to give the inside team more time to raise the multiplier. Don’t wait to long or its a wipe. Drop the shield, and the inside team will grab an orb to take them outside. When everyone is outside hop on a platform to be able to deal damage to Calus. Whenever Calus raises his hand, hop off the platform and head towards the next one and repeat. If he isn’t defeated in 1one phase then you must try again. Do everything like before, only thing that changes is that there are now holes that the inside team must avoid.
