After traversing The Abyss, you will find yourself standing in front of an incomplete bridge. Progressing through this encounter needs you to use the Enlightened buff to reach the other side. Similar to King’s Fall, you will also need to deal with a few Annihilator Totems that can wipe the team. There is no best subclass for this encounter as there is not much going on here. Here is a complete rundown of how to complete the Bridge encounter in Destiny 2: Crota’s End.


Destiny 2: Crota’s End Bridge Encounter

The purpose of this encounter is to get the entire fireteam on the other side of the bridge. However, to do that, you will first need to build the bridge.


To begin the encounter, one person needs to grab the Chalice of Light from the middle.

Once done, you will need to stand on three plates in the area. You are allowed to leave them for a little while but the entire team will wipe if you stay away for too long. However, you should also note that the Annihilator Totems are only activated if you have someone standing in the middle.


The idea is to assign three people to plates. The remaining people should clear the area. You will need to deal with some Acolytes, Thralls, Barrier Champions, and Swordbearers.

After someone has become Enlightened, deposit it on the middle plate to build the bridge.

Cross the Bridge

Once the bridge is fully built, someone who is Enlightened will need to pick up the sword dropped by a Swordbearer before crossing the bridge to reach the other side. It is important to remember that if you try to cross the bridge without the sword, you will die.

While holding the sword, do not use your Dodge, change weapons, etc. because it will cause you to drop the sword and you will not be able to pick it up again. With the sword in hand, reach the other side where you will need to defeat a Gatekeeper.


Do note that this Gatekeeper can only be damaged with the Hive Sword from a Swordbearer. After you are done, you will need to preserve the Hive Sword at one of the canisters in the area. From there, roam around the area until the next Enlightened person joins you. Like before, defeat a Gatekeeper and preserve the Hive Sword.

Once three players have crossed the bridge and preserved the Hive Swords, they will need to stand on all the plates, relieving the remaining three players on the spawn-side.

Out of these three players on the spawn-side, two will become Enlightened and the last one will carry the Chalice of Light to other side of the bridge and deposit it at the bottom of the stairs.

Defeat the Gatekeepers

Once the entire team has crossed the bridge, you will get off the plates and defeat a few enemies. After you are done, grab the Chalice of Light that your last player deposited to get Enlightened. You do not need your entire team to do it — a couple of players should do it.


Once 2-3 players are Enlightened, grab the Hive Swords that you preserved earlier and defeat all the Gatekeepers that appear in the area. After you have done that, the chest will spawn.
