How do you complete the Red Rover challenge in Destiny 2? This challenge is the first challenge in the Depp Stone Crypt raid and takes place in the Security encounter. As long as you have a team with solid communication, it shouldn't be too hard to complete. Still, it's probably not something you can just do blind without a guide. So here's a how-to for the Red Rover challenge.

Red Rover Challenge Destiny 2: How to Complete

As you can see in this video by YouTuber Fallout plays, the Red Rover challenge requires players to be an operator at least once and shoot the basement panels at least twice as well. This occurs in the security encounter, where a team will need to destroy six fuses. Since only two operators can go to the basement each damage phase, make sure to leave enough health for three damage phases.

As Fallout Plays suggests, it's best to split into three groups of two each. The first person from the group will go down with the operator augment buff and shoot the two panels called out in the first room, before passing it along to the second person in their group for the second room. Repeat this for all three groups until everybody from the raid team has completed an "operator run." Remember to only go in one at a time, as the only way to escape from the basement is to have your buddy grab the Operator buff from upstairs.

Completing this challenge completes a triumph for the Depp Stone Crypt "Descendant" seal as well as one extra raid chest after completing the encounter.
