Destiny 2: How to complete Eyes on the Moon Mission and unlock Vex Offensive
You will only be able to play Vex Offensive once you complete a short mini-quest Eyes on the Moon
You may not know that The Vex Offensive is now available in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep but you must know that you are now allowed to play without completing a short mission Eyes on The Moon. Yes, you will only be able to play Vex Offensive once you complete a short mini-quest Eyes on the Moon, which is not vividly explained in the game. In this guide, we will explain you how to start Eyes on the Moon mission in Destiny 2 and how to unlock Vex Offensive.
How to start and finish the Destiny 2 Eyes on the Moon quest
In order to complete the Eyes on the Moon quest, you will have to go and talk to Ikora in the Tower. Ikora will give you a quest which is called Vex Invasion Emergent Protocol. To finish the mission, you are required to have killed 100 Vex enemies on the Moon as well as three Gate Lords. This ties into a new type of public event which occurs on the Moon: Vex Invasions.
Move to the moon to check the map where you will witness a few small Vex icons dotted around the planet. Vex Icons indicate places where Vex Invasions take place. Notably, they do not line up exactly but if you reach their nearby, you will be able to see the invasions when they begin.
You will have to see a big portal in the sky, lots of lightning, a pillar of light visible from quite a ways away, and a message in the chatbox that reads a Vex Invasion has begun. Do not forget to keep an eye out for pockets of Vex roaming the planet, too. If you are able to see them, you are in the range of a potential Invasion.
Kill 3 Vex Gate Lords & 100 Vex
The moment you find an invasion, a Minotaur Gate Lord will be shown. Vex will keep spawning as long as the Gate Lord is alive, so you might want to leave it up in order to farm kills. Once you managed to destroy the Gate Lord a bit and kill many of the basic enemies, two Quantum Hydras will pop up.
Make sure to kill the Hydras before finishing the Gate Lord. This will cause another Invasion to start nearby, and you can chain this up to three times to not only get all your Gate Lord kills in one go but also to spawn an Overlord Hydra which drops Vex gear.
Once you complete killing 100 Vex and three Gate Lords, your quest will update to Eyes on the Moon. Talk to Eris near the main landing zone to finish the quest and unlock Vex Offensive. Yes, that’s it.
