How to Activate the Heroic Version of the Cabal Excavation Public Event

Each Public Event in Destiny 2 has a heroic version that will reward Guardians with better loot upon completion. Guardians must follow a specific set of steps to trigger the heroic version of the event. This guide will show you how to turn the Cabal Excavation Public Event into its heroic version.

In this Public Event you must stop the Cabal from drilling by overriding the lander and destroying all the enemies that spawn near the drill. A red ship, called “Thresher”, will appear at some point into the battle. It’s key to activating the heroic version of this event. As soon as the ship appears near the event, focus all your fire on it. You must destroy the Thresher before it has a chance to escape. You’ll likely need the assistance of fellow Guardians, so hopefully they have also read this guide. The ship may make a second appearance, but we suggest that you do your best to destroy it immediately. Once the ship has been destroyed, the drill will disappear and a yellow-bar Centurion, the Excavation Valus, will spawn. Defeat him to claim the rewards of completing this Heroic Public Event.

In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lays in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a “Guardian,” humanity’s chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home. In Destiny 2 players will answer this call, embarking on a fresh story filled with new destinations around our solar system to explore, and an expansive amount of activities to discover. There is something for almost every type of gamer in Destiny 2, including gameplay for solo, cooperative and competitive players set within a vast, evolving and exciting universe.
