Just two weeks into Destiny 2‘s Season of the Worthy, the Moon Seraph Bunker has opened up, replacing the EDZ Bunker to become the focal point of the season’s progress-driven activities before the bunker on Io replaces it on April 7th. Just like its EDZ counterpart in the Rasputin network, the Moon bunker requires you level it up by feeding it Legendary Shards, Helium Filaments, and Warmind Bits. In fact, it takes exactly 3,100 Warmind Bits to upgrade this underground lunar lair. If you don’t have all of that at the moment, you’ll want to level the bunker up as efficiently as possible to maximize your bunker rewards. Just note that bunker upgrades and perks are only available to Season Pass holders.

Level Up with Strategy

1. Cost Reduction: Tiers 1 – 3

These should be your priority, since they will maximize the benefit for all the other upgrades.

  • Tier 1: On the Moon, Seraph Bunker upgrades cost less to acquire.
  • Tier 2: On any destination, Rasputin’s Sidearm weapon frame pursuits cost less to acquire.
  • Tier 3: Moon Bunker upgrades cost less to acquire.

2. Warmind Bit Generation: Tiers 1 – 3

Since Warmind Bits are crucial for upgrading, these should be your second priority to tackle.

  • Tier 1: On all destinations, completing Legendary Lost Sectors has an extra chance of awarding Warmind Bits.
  • Tier 2: Completing Rasputin Daily bounties awards extra Warmind Bits.
  • Tier 3: Completing Nightmare Hunts, Menagerie encounters, Black Armory forges, and Lost Sectors gives a chance to award bonus Warmind Bits.

3. Moon Encrypted Warmind Bits: Tiers 1 – 3

After reducing the cost of the upgrades and increasing your Warmind Bits earned in activities, you should focus on Encrypted Warmind Bits next.

  • Tier 1: Encrypted Warmind Bits awarded for completing Strikes, Crucible matches, Gambit matches, and Nightmare Hunts.
  • Tier 2: Moon Rasputin chests have a chance to return the used Encrypted Warmind Bits.
  • Tier 3: Use Rasputin’s point defense systems in the Moon bunker at reduced cost.
