Destiny 2 Duality Dungeon Hidden mechanics

The duality dungeon has lots of hidden mechanics and secrets that you should be looking for. Since it is a bit complicated, we recommend that you should go slowly and try not to rush when you start. You will discover logs spoken by Calus and other secrets scattered around. Furthermore, you will also find some hidden chests that you should surely not miss. In short, there are lots of hidden mechanics in Duality Dungeon and you should look everywhere for them. 

Destiny 2 Duality Dungeon Bells

The bells in the duality dungeon are red glowing contraptions. It is a lot of fun and something very new for the players. When you shoot these bells from a distance, you will be transported to a nightmare. You will be trapped in a nightmare with a ticking clock. 

This means that you will have to exit the nightmare by shooting another bell in the given time. To safely return to the real world, players need to stand within the circle around the bell while inside the Nightmare. Players do not need to be near a bell when traveling from the real world to a Nightmare.

Avoid using grenades and launchers

When you are in a nightmare, you will have to avoid using explosives like grenades, launchers, and even weapons with perks like Ricochet Rounds and Firefly. This is because there are bell hitboxes. Hitboxes are large boxes around the bells and if you shoot them, you will kill anyone who is standing outside of the circle. So, the grenades and other weapons that do lots of damage in an area are not recommended as you will have to avoid shooting at the hitboxes.

Remove ads

Players should pay attention to any ads that threaten players who have Essences attached to a symbol during the Nightmare sections. Because dying while carrying an Essence forces players to re-enter the Nightmare, kill the opponent protecting that Essence, pick it up, and return to the specified location. Since there is a significant amount of time invested, removing ads and keeping things safe for whoever is receiving Essences is vital for a good outcome.

Healing is important

The new subclass has introduced some great healing builds and this will help you a lot in the Destiny 2 Duality Dungeon. As there will be lots of enemies and especially the orange bar enemies, it will trouble you to survive. Therefore, the healing builds will be your savior. Moreover, you can also invest in Resilience as it will give you a 40% damage reduction at tier 10. 

Bells can be locked

It may also be possible to lock bells by certain enemies, making them immune and impossible to interact with. To unlock bells, players should look for orange-bar enemies named “Bellkeepers”. Once they’re dead, a message appears on the left asking to ring a bell.

Essence Symbols

As we already said, the players will be sent into Nightmares through the bells. There, they must kill specific orange-bar enemies that drop essences related to specific symbols. The symbols are Chalice, War Beast, Sun, or Axe. The symbol or Essence that a player is carrying can be seen on the left side of their screen. Essences must be placed in the location marked by a white holograph with the appropriate symbol.

Lament and Fallen Guillotine are a great choice because you can deal some great damage from a close distance. As we already said, the enemies can be overwhelming, and sometimes you will be in very tight situations. Therefore, choosing the right weapon is very crucial in the duality dungeon. You can also try Divinity and make a perfect build so that you can increase the potential of damage.

The density of the enemies in Duality Dungeon will be very high, and in addition to that, you will also have to keep your eyes on the timer. As a result, it will be a little hectic for you to do everything correctly. You don’t need to fight always. You can just run away with the help of the crowd control gear. Stasis Bleak Watcher is one of the best options available here as you can stun and freeze the enemies.

Beat the Final Boss

Caiatl’s Nightmare form is the last boss of Duality, and she will take a significant amount of damage to defeat. It is also a bit unusual that Caiatl teleports into the Nightmare dimension while accompanied by the guardians so that he can approach one of the three bells inside the room. Kill the bell keepers on Caiatl’s side, then shoot the bell to stun her. To stun Caiatl, you must shoot the bell early. 

Caiatl can even be distracted by a single fireteam member approaching her and forcing her to halt, since a stomp can bring the Bellkeepers down swiftly. A damage buff can be gained by standing close to or right next to the bell used to stun Caiatl. The goal is to keep her from getting any closer to the bell, or even escaping because getting too near to it might cause it to absorb part of the damage.
