There’s a hidden challenge in the Tower that can grant you a Quickness buff. It’s also, perhaps more importantly, pretty fun.

The Floor is Lava Challenge is a lot like the Secret Scouting Patrol Easter egg at the farm, but if you’ve finished the game you probably haven’t visited the farm in a little while, right? You should also check out our Destiny 2 guide if you have…any other questions about Destiny 2. We’ve covered just about everything.

Here’s a video guide from Violate that we thought was pretty good; we’ve also got a text description below for those who prefer step-by-step written instructions.

From the spawn point, turn left and jump on top the postmaster booth. The sloped wall here has little indents that look like steps, which you can run or jump right up. Once you’re up there, turn left onto the walkway.

Midway down this walkway, there’s a little pile of debris on the ground. Walk up and you’ll get a prompt – ‘Don’t Pick Me Up’. Hmmm. Sounds like an invitation to pick it up, right? Go ahead and do so.

Now, the moment you leave this railing, the floor will be lava, and spending more than about a second on it will kill you. Look back down in the direction of the Traveler and you’ll see a glowing light in one of three places. Your objective now is to get there without touching the ground, which can be challenging because it means a lot of jumping and running along handrails.

If you fail, go back and restart the challenge, and the light will spawn in a different spot. If you can get the light on the left, that’s probably easiest to get to, but take your time and be careful and you should be able to reach any of them.

Do this and you’ll find yourself running faster and jumping higher, which can’t be taken outside of the Tower, but hey, it’s fun! Head to the soccer field in the hanger and you’ll be able to absolutely dominate, too.

That’s it for this secret – it’s a bit of a laugh, so go give it a shot.
