Garden of Salvation has a total of 4 challenges that players can complete to unlock different triumphs and the “Enlightened” seal. These challenges rotate every week and completing them rewards players with an additional Pinnacle Reward. The first of these challenges is called “Staying Alive” and it unlocks “Leftovers” triumph. In this guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know about completing the Staying Alive challenge in Garden of Salvation in Destiny 2.


Destiny 2 Garden of Salvation Staying Alive

In order to complete the challenge, you simply need to leave all the Cyclopses in the area where the Consecrated Mind is – during the first encounter. There will be a total of 2 Cyclopses in the room with the boss and you must leave them alone.

Since there are a lot of Cyclopses during the first encounter, it is a good idea to have a clear understanding what you can and cannot kill to complete the challenge. The following are the Cyclopses which you can kill without worrying about failing the challenge:

  • A single Cyclopse that is already present in a room that needs to be killed to spawn the Angelic
  • Cyclopses at the end of the encounter where drops multiple Overflows

You only cannot kill the two Angelics that spawn in the same area where the boss is. To make it a whole lot easier, you should try to have at least one Well of Riddance or a Ward of Dawn in each of the rooms. Mid-tree Warlock should also use his Healing Grenade and Healing Rifts to provide a little sustain. A small thing to note that if everything is shooting at you at the same time, there are chances that you will die even when inside a Well of Riddance.


I would suggest playing it safe and using cover to your advantage in order to complete it.
