The Season of The Deep title is no exception, and if you’re here looking for how to get the new Aquanaut title, we’ve got you covered.
We’ll go over all the different triumphs you’ll need to complete to unlock the title Aquanaut on your characters, including the secret triumphs that make the title so tricky to get. Once you’ve got your badge of honour on though, make sure your fashion is on point to match by checking out what’s in the Destiny 2 weekly eververse store, for some drip worthy of your name.
How to get the title: Aquanaut
To get the Aquanaut title in Destiny 2, you’ll need to complete all ten triumphs under the title badge. As this is the title for the Season of The Deep, all ten of these triumphs are related to seasonal missions, activities and challenges. These triumphs are:
- Weekly Wetwork
- Challenges Accepted
- Echo Relocation
- Reprised Reckoning
- Big Fish
- Down The Drain
- Pressurized Deep – the first secret challenge.
- Quantity Over Quality
- Ambitious Angler
- Something Wicked This Way Comes – the second secret challenge.
We’ll go through them in order and explain how you can complete each one.
To view your progress, open your character menu and go to the Journey tab at the top. Click on the Titles tab, and then click on the Aquanaut title badge.
To complete the first triumph of the title, you just need to take part in and complete each weekly quest step of the “Into the Depths” seasonal story mission. You will need to have the season pass in order to do this. Each part released across a different week for a total of six. With the season now over, you simply need to complete all six parts of this story by finishing their associated weekly missions. Completing this triumph will also reward an exotic sparrow: To Be Remembered.
For this triumph, you need to complete a separate series of season-related challenges, each of which will unlock seasonal bonuses. These challenges and their progress can be viewed by returning to the Journey menu, clicking on the blue Seasonal Challenges tab at the bottom, and then clicking across from Weekly challenges to Seasonal Bonuses challenges.
Completing these will not only unlock this triumph, they will also unlock different bonuses that can boost vendor progress and utility. Finishing the triumph will also unlock a seasonal emblem.
Here are the ten Seasonal Bonus challenges you need to complete, and what they unlock.
|How To Complete
|Complete week one of the “Into the Depths” seasonal story mission.
|Completing Season of The Deep weekly activities will grant a chance to earn an additional Deep engram.
|Deep Armor Focusing
|Unlock one of every piece of Season of The Deep Armour.
|Unlocks the ability to focus Deep engrams into Deep Armor engrams.
|Deep Weapon Focusing
|Unlock one of each of the six Season of The Deep weapons.
|Unlocks the ability to focus Deep engrams into Deep Weapon engrams.
|Rank 7 with the Sonar Station in the H.E.L.M.
|Gain extra seasonal reputation when opening a chest at the end of seasonal activities for you and your fireteam.
|Reach Rank 13 with the Sonar Station seasonal vendor in the H.E.L.M.
|Gain an additional Deep engram each time you complete a seasonal activity.
|Catch 25 total fish while a fish pond is at its maximum catch bonus.
|Gives you a chance to have bait returned to you when catching a fish.
|Complete three jobs in a single Salvage mission as a fireteam
|Redeeming a key in Salvage or Deep Dive activities has a chance to reward an additional Deep engram.
|Defeat each unique boss in Salvage activities.
|Your first focused Deep weapon engram each week is guaranteed to roll as a Red Border weapon.
|Deep Sea Locksmith
|Defeat each unique boss in Deep Dive activities.
|Each Salvage key you redeem has a chance to drop a Deep Dive key.
|Successfully complete a Deep Dive at Abyssal depth.
|Special and heavy ammo crates will spawn at each depth during Deep Dive activities.
For this triumph, you just need to reset your rank at the seasonal vendor, the Sonar Station. The Sonar Station can be found at the H.E.L.M, next to the portal that leads to Ahsa in the aquarium room. The maximum rank for this vendor is Rank 16.
The best way to get your vendor rank up fast with vendors is to complete bounties on offer from them. For the Sonar Station, these bounties are available to players who own the paid track of the season pass. All of these bounties will be tied to seasonal activities and missions in some way, and will often require you to play for certain goals or change your loadout or playstyle in certain ways. They’re also a good way to get Glimmer.
This triumph needs you to defeat combatants using seasonal weapons to progress a percentage bar to completion. The seasonal weapons are:
- A Distant Pull – sniper rifle
- Different Times – pulse rifle
- Rapacious Appetite – submachine gun
- Targeted Redaction – hand cannon
- Thin Precipice – sword
- Until Its Return – shotgun
Defeating Guardians in PvP activities will grant additional progress on the percentage bar, compared to PvE activities. None of these really qualify for the best Destiny 2 PvP weapons though, so you might be in for a challenge if you decide to grind out your progress in the Crucible.
This triumph is one of the simplest for the Destiny 2 Aquanaut title. It asks you to defeat each unique boss in Salvage activities, of which there are two. These bosses are Azshradat, Celebrant of Xivu Arath and Uorgotha, Scourge of The Deep. You’ll complete this one automatically on your way to completing the ten challenges for the Challenges Accepted triumph.
Down The Drain
This triumph is also easy, and wants you to defeat each unique boss in Deep Dive activities, of which there are three. These three bosses are J4WS, Wrathborn Servitor, Kudazad, Bound to Xivu Arath, and Kelgorath, Taken From Bones. Again, you’ll complete this one automatically as you’re working your way towards the Challenges Accepted triumph.
This is the first of two secret triumphs in the Aquanaut title. For this triumph, you’ll need to complete all three different Deep Dive encounters (that means fighting each unique boss) with a pressure trial active. You’ll be able to activate the pressure trial in a Deep Dive by finding a glowing taken essence hidden near the beginning of the first encounter. Once you have the pressure trials active, you’ll need to defeat targets including several waves of minibosses throughout the Deep Dive within the activity time limit in order to succeed.
Quantity over Quality
Here’s another easy one. For this triumph, you need to catch any fish at any fish pond to fill up a percentage bar. If you’re not quite sure how to fish in Destiny 2, we’ve got you covered.
For this penultimate triumph, you need to catch an exotic fish at any fish pond. Exotic fish are of course rare, and require a lot of patience, but the longer you fish for, the better your chances of catching one.
Something Wicked This Way Comes
The final triumph for the Aquanaut is another secret one. To earn this, you’ll need to complete all steps of the hidden quest and the Whetstone Encounter for the new exotic weapon. If you want to get Wicked Implement, finishing this quest is the way to do it. This is a difficult mission, easily a step above Starcrossed, so be sure to bring your best exotic weapons and best legendary weapons to the table. Upon earning the new stasis scout rifle, this final triumph will unlock.
That’s how to unlock the Destiny 2 Aquanaut title.
