Destiny Daily 9/24/14: New Daily Bounties & Story Mission

Destiny Daily

Yesterday Destiny opened up The Queen’s Wrath event, and it’s pretty great. Completing and turning in Queen’s bounties gives you a Kill Order from the Queen to replay a story mission with the epic modifier on it.  Doing so rewards legendary gear; I got a chest piece that I’m going to eventually swap to as well as finally got a legendary helmet. Also got duplicates of that gear that I welcomed because I dismantled it for the shards. All in all, I was able to hit level 28 yesterday thanks to The Queen’s Wrath.

It’s a new day in Destiny, and these are the bounties that are available today:


  • One For All – Achieve Gold Tier Rating in Public Events (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Predator and Prey – Kill 20 enemies without taking damage from them (+50 Rep, +2500 XP)
  • Overcharge – Kill 2 enemies at once with a Fusion Rifle, 20 times (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • TARGET: SIMIKS-3 – Defeat Simikis-3 in “The Archive” mission on Venus with Heroic modifier active (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • TARGET: BRACUS THA’AURN – Defeat Bracus Tha’aurn in “The Buried City” mission on Mars with Heroic modifier active (+100 Rep, +500 XP)
  • Patrol The Moon – Complete 6 Patrol missions on the Moon (+50 Rep, +2500 XP)

That’s the kind of bounties I like to see; look at those plus 100 rep bounties. Nice!


  • Shake The Pillars – Defeat 25 Titans in the Crucible (+75 Rep, +3750 XP)
  • Forged In Fire – Win 3 Crucible Matches (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Headhunter – Defeat 50 Guardians with headshots (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Stay Golden – Complete 5 Rumble Matches (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Electrocutioner – Earn 10 Fusion Rifle Sprees in the Crucible (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • No Riding Zone – Defeat 10 Guardians on Vehicles (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)

Queen’s Reef

  • For Her Honor – Win 3 Crucible Matches with the Queen’s Class, Emblem and Shader items equipped (+75 Favor, +3750 XP) [PVP] {I don’t think this one is possible yet, but I may be wrong.)
  • Off With Their Heads – Defeat 15 Guardians with Sniper Rifle headshots (+75 Favor, +3750 XP) [PVP]
  • By Thy Hand – Defeat 20 Guardians with Hand Cannon headshots (+50 Favor, +2500 XP) [PVP]
  • Relic Harvest – Fallen – Collect 200 Ether Drops from Fallen enemies on any planet (+50 Favor, +2500 XP)
  • Extermination Protocol – Defeat 200 Fallen with headshots (+100 Favor, +5000 XP)
  • Face Your Fears – Defeat 3 Fallen Walker’s (+50 Favor, +2500 XP)

The Daily Heroic Story mission for today is A Rising Tide on Mars. It also has the Juggler modifier active, which means enemies won’t drop ammo for your equipped weapon. Shouldn’t be too bad; I’ll be doing the level 28 version of it and will have my fingers crossed that I get 2 Ascendant Shards since that is how many I need to upgrade my boots.

So today is pretty good on the bounty front.  You’re looking at least 560 Vanguard Rep (or whatever Faction you’re representing) from doing the Vanguard bounties; that’s pretty good. All of them are easy, so that makes it even better. I do wish the Queen’s Reef had more PVE bounties instead of tying it up 3-3. Sorry game, I don’t want to play Crucible with a hand cannon, stop asking me to.

Later this evening my review of the game will be going up, so be on the look out for that. Now get out there and grab some legendary gear and increase your ranking with factions.

  1. Hey!

    Thanks for this. It really helps out to know what the daily bounties are while I’m at work, so I can get pumped before I go home :D

    For the Queen’s wrath story missions with the random modifiers: Have you found them very difficult? I am a level 27 Titan and I was wondering if I can go at them Solo, or if I’d be forced to join with a fireteam to beat them.



    • Hey, glad it’s proven useful for you!

      The story missions aren’t that difficult. I’ve solo’d the majority of them, but did have to bring a friend in for one to make it a little easier. Thing about them is that if you get a story mission you don’t like or is hard, you can go back to orbit and then select the Queen’s Wrath mission again and get a new one. I’ve seen a lot of folks say they’ve been leaving until they got the first story mission on Earth, because it’s the easiest.

      As a 27 Titan, you probably won’t have much trouble though. It depends on the mission; some will have more shielded enemies than others and some boss battles produce more additional enemies than others. Completely doable solo though!

      Thanks for the comment!
