Proving Floor is a brand new Strike in Destiny 2, capping off the Battlegrounds exercise that is been operating all through the Season of the Chosen. The Strike ends the story of the Vanguard’s hostilities with Cabal Empress Caiatl whereas additionally offering Triumphs important to the Chosen seal and title, and coming with its personal Seasonal Problem. There’s rather a lot to do within the quick Strike, and it is simple to overlook components of it in the event you’re operating by means of as rapidly as you’ll be able to.
This is a rundown of what it is advisable to do in Proving Floor to unlock the Proving Floor Trifecta Seasonal Problem and Remove Caiatl’s Cabal Triumph.
Proving Floor Trifecta Seasonal Problem
The Seasonal Problem for the Proving Floor Strike is fairly easy to finish, though you may must do the Strike a number of occasions with the intention to knock it out. It incorporates three targets:
- Full the Proving Floor Strike 3 occasions
- Defeat 150 enemies in Strike
- Deposit energy cores within the undercarriage of the land tank
Largely, you simply must run the Strike a number of occasions with the intention to hit all three targets. You possibly can full all necessities on the “Regular” problem model of the Strike that is accessible from the Nessus map within the Director, which suggests you needn’t watch for Proving Floor to point out up whereas enjoying within the Strike playlist.
Whereas the primary two targets are simple, the final is the one which may offer you a little bit bother. As soon as you’ve got fought your manner into the land tank, you may cross by means of its car bay–and combat two Goliath tanks, together with a bunch of enemies–before descending into the bowels of the car. Once you attain the underside of the upkeep space, you may combat by means of a piece the place you’ll be able to cross over the land tank’s transferring treads. Your aim right here is to search out two Energy cores, marked in your HUD, and use them to overload the tank’s controls by depositing them within the management room.
The trick right here is to be the one who picks up and deposits the cores, that are much like the glowing, explosive orbs discovered within the Arms Seller Strike. Take these cores from cylindrical dispensers set into the wall of the tank and produce them to related deposit spots subsequent to massive management screens within the central space of this combat. The trick right here is to keep away from dying; let your teammates clear the best way to the deposit for every energy core so you’ll be able to efficiently dunk them.
It’s essential deposit two cores in whole, which is not too tough–provided your teammates do not get to them first. Simply run the Strike once more in the event you miss out. As soon as you’ve got bought each cores, killed sufficient enemies, and accomplished the Strike 3 times, the Seasonal Problem will probably be yours.

Remove Caiatl’s Cabal Triumph
There’s an additional caveat to Proving Floor that units it aside, considerably, from different Strikes. Since you’re combating by means of Caiatl’s land tank, you go up towards a few of her finest troopers. There are 10 whole named enemies who present up all through the Strike, together with its last boss. To unlock the Remove Caiatl’s Cabal Triumph and full the Season of the Chosen’s seal, it is advisable to kill all 10 of them.
The excellent news is that you do not have to kill all these enemies in a single run. The dangerous information is that if a teammate kills them earlier than you understand the place they’re, you may miss out and must run the Strike once more. Nonetheless, the necessities for this Triumph are fairly relaxed. You needn’t land the precise last blow on the named enemies–you simply must shoot them just a few occasions, as with different mini-boss and boss characters all through Future 2. That simply implies that, as long as you discover every enemy earlier than your teammates have an opportunity to kill them, you’ll be able to hit them a few times and get credit score for contributing to their deaths. That contribution appears to be sufficient to get the Triumph.
The ten enemies are powerful Centurions, Incendior, Phalanx, or Psion enemies, and you will typically know them by their orange and yellow well being bars. They’re normally additionally shielded, which can also be a superb giveaway. Two of the VIPs you’ll be able to’t miss: Ignovun, the ultimate boss, and Val Ozysas, the mini-boss who guards the doorway to the tank. The remainder you may discover in two main battles, first within the Automobile Bay (the place you additionally combat two tanks), then within the Upkeep Space (the place you must dunk energy cores into management consoles).
It is value noting that it appears you may not get each VIP in a single run by means of the exercise. We discovered Val Vinca’ar within the opening of the Upkeep Space in a single Strike run, and Val Cempas in the identical place in one other. It additionally looks like Optus Taxaat and Optus Vocca may not present up each run, to allow them to be powerful to search out. It additionally appears that Taxaat and Vocca specifically can escape in the event you kill too many different main enemies within the space, like Halphas Honor Guards, earlier than you are taking them down–so ensure you’ve cleared out the named enemies earlier than you eliminate the opposite orange- and yellow-bar baddies.
Automobile Bay Enemies
Search for a number of Vals to point out up at the back of the room, close to the place the Goliath tanks enter the battle. These guys are simple to identify due to their shields; they’re normally Centurions, Colossi, or Incendiors. A couple of hits on each will deal with the state of affairs.
There’s additionally one tougher-to-find enemy, a significant Psion referred to as Optus Taxaat. He likes to hang around in the course of the room on the narrower walkway. He is additionally typically weaker than the opposite VIPs, so he will be killed by your teammates earlier than you ever spot him. Hold an eye fixed out for Taxaat early within the combat, earlier than or round when the Goliaths present up.
Automobile Bay VIPs
- Optus Taxaat
- Val Kladior
- Val Cunqu’us
- Val Trekitus
Upkeep Space Enemies
Your final batch of VIPs present up whenever you drop all the best way all the way down to the Upkeep Space, close to the land tank’s monumental treads. As quickly as you drop to the underside of the room with the steel scaffolds, you may undergo a door with a bunch of Cabal stacked up on a slender walkway. Fireplace away into this group, as Val Vinca’ar is amongst them.
Search for extra shielded Vals as you make your manner by means of the central space. Optus Vocca, the second VIP Psion, is positioned on the far aspect of the management space, close to the treads. You may have to leap throughout to succeed in the second energy core; search for Vocca operating round with the opposite Cabal guarding the core, usually hiding behind the massive crate on the suitable aspect. Once more, he is simpler to kill than the Vals, and so that you need to attempt to be the primary individual over to this space to ensure you damage him earlier than he goes down. For a little bit insurance coverage, attempt area-of-effect weapons like grenades, and rapid-fire weapons comparable to auto rifles, so you’ll be able to not less than hit him a few times earlier than he is knocked out.
Upkeep Space VIPs
- Optus Vocca
- Val Vinca’ar
- Val Veorthus
- Val Cempas
It is value noting that there aren’t any VIPs within the boss chamber aside from Ignovun himself, so in the event you’re simply operating by means of the Strike to mop up these enemies, you do not essentially want to finish it earlier than beginning your search once more.
