Warning: This is a work-in-progress guide for the second encounter of the Deep Stone Crypt Destiny 2 Beyond Light Raid. If something does not make sense, it’s because we are entering this info in real-time and will come back to update and add images and other graphics needed to complete this section of the Raid.

Augment Buffs Found in This Raid Encounter

  • Red Operator Augment Buff: 
  • Yellow Seeker Augment Buff: Can see devices to plant nuclear cores into.
  • Blue Suppressor Augment Buff: 

The Taniks the Abomination encounter in the Destiny 2, Beyond Light Deep Stone Crypt Raid is pretty straight forward when compared to the encounters in the Deep Stone Crypt Raid.

Six receptacles devices, in pairs of two, will spawn around the map that players will again need to be deposited nuclear cores into. The receptacle devices that the nuclear cores need to be deposited into are only able to be seen by the player who has the Seeker buff. It is a good idea to number these receptacles so as the carrier of the yellow Seeker buff calls out the location of the active device to deposit the nuclear cores into, the team members who pick up the nuclear cores will be able to know where to deposit them.

Once again, it is advisable to divide your fireteam of six players into teams of two, actually labeled as your “Buff Buddy”. Your Buff Buddy will support you when it comes to transferring the augment buff when it is defunct and resurrecting their Buff Buddy teammate if they are to go down.
