Knowing the Destiny 2 lost sector rotation is a good way to get ahead of which mini-dungeons are coming up in the game, and what exotic armor type you can hope to farm from them. As with the last few seasons, Bungie has added some powerful exotic armor pieces that you can only get by running Legend or Master lost sector's solo. There are also lots of exotics from previous seasons you can only get this way as well.

Since Legend and Master lost sectors can also reward you with any exotic, they are perfect for new players looking to farm those fancy armor pieces that they might have missed in past expansions and seasons. Here, I'll list the current Legend and Master lost sector rotation, what the new exotic armor pieces are, as well as some tips on how to unlock these special lost sectors if you want to take them on.

What is the Destiny 2 lost sector today?

Here is the full lost sector rotation for the rest of March, including what champion types are in each, and what exotic armor they provide:

You can also find the daily lost sector on TodayInDestiny (opens in new tab). Luckily, there are EDZ lost sectors this season, so we have some shorter farming options for the new exotic armor. I'll be sure to update this list when the full rotation has been established.

What are the new lost sector exotics?

There are six new exotic armor pieces in the Season of Defiance and Lightfall that you can get through Legend and Master lost sectors:

  • Cyrtarachne’s Façade (Hunter helmet): This exotic helmet gives you Woven Mail when you use the Strand grapple ability, providing flinch and overall damage resistance—except for getting shot in the head.
  • Speedloader's Slacks (Hunter legs): Dodging boosts reload speed, handling, and airborne effectiveness for you and nearby allies. While active, final blows strengthen the buff up to five stacks.
  • Cadmus Ridge Lancecap (Titan helmet): Diamond Lances create Stasis Crystals on impact when thrown, with more crystals created by hitting bosses and vehicles. While using a Stasis subclass behind your rally barricade, rapid precision hits and final blows with a Stasis weapon create Diamond Lances.
  • Abeyant Leap (Titan legs): These Titan boots improve the Drengr's Lash Strand aspect, allowing it to spawn two additional lashes when you use a barricade that seek out targets and suspend them in the air. Hitting targets with the lashes gives you woven mail.
  • Ballidorse Wrathweavers (Warlock gloves): These gloves make your Stasis Winters Wrath shockwave deal increased shatter damage, and give an overshield and increased stasis damage to allies caught in range of it.
  • Swarmers (Warlock boots): These Warlock boots spawn Threadlings when you destroy a Strand Tangle, either by shooting one, or by picking it up and throwing it. Your Threadlings also unravel targets that they damage.

If you complete Lightfall on legendary you'll get a choice between one of the two new class exotics at the end of the campaign. However, all of them are a possible reward from solo Legend or Master lost sectors.

Can you farm exotic armor in lost sectors?

Unlike dungeons and raids, where you only have limited weekly opportunities to grab the exotic, you can farm lost sector's to your heart's content, and considering the drop rates for some of the exotic armor pieces, it's likely that you'll have to. If you're just starting out and have never done a Legend lost sector before, you'll have to do the regular lost sector first in order to unlock the icon on the map, as well as get yourself to an appropriate power level where you can survive.

When you do your first Legend, make sure to check the champions you'll be fighting using the map, and unlock the relevant anti-champion upgrades in the seasonal artifact so you can stun and damage them properly. You'll also want to bring an energy weapon that matches the shield type, so you can strip shields from enemies. It's worth remembering that Bungie has added new class-based ways to stun champions this season, such as volatile rounds for barriers, or jolt against overloads. You can check all of these in the mod customisation section of your character menu.

Legend and Master lost sectors actually drop all exotic armour, so they can be a great way of farming what you don't have if you're starting a fresh class. However, you will have to run the lost sectors solo in order to have a chance of dropping exotics at all. Simply head to the relevant lost sector, shown by the marker on the map, and rather than running inside, activate the flag near the entrance and choose your difficulty to begin. You only have limited lives and time before permadeath kicks in and you won't be able to revive anymore, but you can earn more lives by defeating champions. Lastly, don't forget to place an armorer mod in your ghost so you can get preferable stats on any exotic armor that does drop.
