How to Unlock Haunted Sectors

It may seem obvious but you have to get all the latest updates and make your way into the game. You also have to progress through some of the game's story to access its strikes and activities.


If you play Destiny 2 somewhat regularly, you will have to do very little to access it. You can find any of the three main sectors in Europa, Moon, or Nessus.

The Beginning

Once you get in there, you have to explore the Haunted sector. Doing so requires taking down enemies and completing fairly menial tasks.

It shouldn't be too hard to make your way through, as long as you know what to expect.

Headless Ones

Once you get near the end of a sector, a timer will appear and reskinned hive knights will try and take you down. You have to summon them throughout the map. Splitting apart and taking each section one by one is a good way of doing so.

As you only have a handful of minutes to do it, you want to be efficient and deadly.

The Boss

Depending on which sector you've chosen to take on, you will have a different boss. That being said, they all have a similar mechanic at work. You have to take their health down significantly where they will become invulnerable.

After this, you have to summon more Headless Ones that will drop pumpkin charges. You can then hit the boss with them to take its invulnerability away. Rinse and repeat this step until the boss eventually dies. You can take these on multiple times throughout the Festival of the lost.
