Destiny 2 - Glimmer Extraction Heroic Public Event Guide

This page contains a guide on the Glimmer Extraction Public Event - Defend the Glimmer Pile, including objectives, and how to trigger it in the game.

Destiny 2 Glimmer Extraction Public Event

The Destiny 2 Glimmer Extraction Public Event involves the player going after Fallen enemies that are gathering glimmer in the area. The Public Event can be accessed in EDZ (Trostland, The Sludge, The Gulch, Firebase Hades) and Nessus (The Tangle, The Cistern, Glade of Echoes).

Expel Extraction Crews

There will be three (3) waves of Extractor enemies that will appear which will be dropped by a transport ship. There will also be some Legionaries in the area, as well as

Heroic Public Event Conditions: To trigger the Heroic Public Event, do not immediately kill the Extractors. Instead, destroy the small extractor machines that appear in the area first. Then, clear out the Extractors in the area. Once you have defeated the first wave, the Extractors will move to another area (you will trigger Pursue the Fallen – Find the next extraction site objective), again with another extractor machine that you need to destroy first. You will need to do this method three more times to activate the Heroic Public Event. Note that each of the three areas will also spawn Extractor Captains which are basically Centurions. Again, also destroy the small extractor machines first before taking out the enemies.

Defend the Glimmer Pile

The Heroic Public Event requires you to protect a Glimmer pile for to allow the transmat to complete. This means that you will need to stand in the white circle where the pile is for the transmat process to progress. It must reach 100 percent to complete the mission. This is one of the easiest Heroic Public Events in the game, and even easier done with a Fireteam.

Though it is a very simple Public Event, it can be frustrating to have allies who do not know how to trigger the Heroic Public Event as they will simply start killing the enemies before destroying the small extractor machines. Because of this, take the initiative of looking for the machines and destroy them first.
