How to level up in the week 1 Nightmare Containment activity in Destiny 2

The main activity in Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted, Nightmare Containment sees you defeating both Scorn and Cabal Loyalists and the Nightmares they work with. There are three levels of containment in Week 1, each escalating in difficulty. Most boil down to a variation of “kill enemies, dunk balls,” but there’s a bit more to it than that.

There are currently three levels of Nightmare Containment, each slightly more complicated than the last. Stage 1 of Nightmare Containment has four steps.

  1. Kill Scorn enemies, paying special attention to the mobs that spawn with the Dreadbearer’s yellow bars. Killing them will drop a Core of Dread ball, which you return to the Nightmare Harvester for extra Shards of Dread points.
  2. Two yellow bar Psion bosses named Egregore Atavist Illusions will appear. Kill them to spawn the actual Egregore Atavist in a bubble of translucent energy. You can’t shoot through the bubble, so go upstairs and smash the Psion in to continue this step.
  3. You kill Scorn again to earn Shards of Dread points. Continue to focus on Dreadbearers and dunk Dread Cores.
  4. Provided you have completed the previous three stages, a boss will appear. Burn him to half his health and he becomes immune. Two Resonant Splinter Orbs appear in the air. Destroy them to break the shield, then burn the boss’s remaining health.

Stage 2 of Nightmare Containment is a slightly more complicated Tier 1.

  1. You’re back to killing Scorn and racking up Shards of Dread points, but there are now Overload Champions and additional yellow bar enemies to contend with
  2. Next, you’ll fight Cabal again, but this time you’ll have to kill two Egregore Atavists that spawn throughout the encounter area. Defeating her illusion again will spawn the actual Psion, and once the last of the four is dead you’ll advance to the next step.
  3. Step three here repeats step one, so kill Scorn, Bank Points, Dunk Cores of Dread, use the Relic, etc.
  4. In the final step, you will face a tougher Cabal boss. At about half health, he gains an immunity shield. Destroy the four Resonance Shards that appear, then burn it.

Stage 3 of Nightmare Containment is the last step for now and pits you against Elykris, a nightmare version of a boss from the Forsaken expansion. The fight consists of three identical phases.

Burn Elyrkis’ health by almost 1/3 and he becomes immune. Six Resonant Shards spawn next to two immune Emissary of Elykris Abomination. Destroy the shards to destroy the Emissary shields. Kill the big boys to lower the boss’s immunity. Burn another 1/3 of his health and repeat the process.

Dreadbearer enemies will spawn during this final encounter. Dipping the Dread Cores will drop Scythe Relics, which you can use to deal free burst damage to the boss. Defeat Elykris to spawn the reward chest for a chance at an Opulent Key and the ability to spend Traces of Terror to acquire Bound Presence. You will use the Bound Presence to open the final chest in the Sever weekly missions and get additional rewards. How to level up in the week 1 Nightmare Containment activity in Destiny 2
