The Solstice of Heroes event is still live in Destiny 2 and this week, Eva has a new elemental bounty for you.

This week, several of the Solstice of Heroes bounties centre around Gambit and Crucible. There are a few weeks left to claim all the Solstice of Heroes rewards, which you can check out here, but Guardians are finding this week’s bounty list quite challenging.

One such problematic bounty is Light and Dark. This new weekly bounty is now live but the steps to complete it are a bit misleading.

Destiny 2: Solstice of Heroes – How to complete the Light and Dark Bounty

When you pick up the bounty from Eva Levante, it reads that you’ll need to get 20 elemental final blows in Gambit matches to complete it. Sounds easy enough, right?

Unfortunately, what it doesn’t tell you is that you need to get 20 Guardian elemental final blows for progress to count. As this is a weekly bounty, you’ll have until September 2 to complete it, but if killing Guardians in Gambit isn’t your forte, you’re in for a bad time.

If you’re playing Gambit Prime and are killing Guardians with no progress achieved, switch back into regular Gambit to see if it makes a difference. If it proves too difficult, you can always patch it in favour of another bounty.
