Iconoclasm is one of the toughest missions in camping. Players need to stop, Witness, and defeat some potent enemies.

Players must complete the series of objectives to achieve victory in this mission;

Fight Your Way Into The Fortress

This is the first objective that will appear on your screen when you start the Iconoclasm mission.

After entering the fortress area, players must breach the Fortress and find the place where the Witness was created.

You will encounter enemies within the area, so you must be careful while finding your way in Fortress.

Additionally, inside the Maelstrom, you will find the restricted area, which you must clear by killing all the enemies there.

After you clear the area, you must head toward the restricted Zone of The Sacrarium. You will encounter the Dolgith Blade of Reasoning Boss there, whom you must defeat.

Journey To The Ritual Site

After defeating various enemies and clearing the area, you must head toward the Ritual site, where Mara will join you.

Proceed through the open door and reach the Court of Thorns area. There, you will face more enemies, including a Lightbearer Acolyte.

The courtroom is the ritual site. Just below it, you will find the Lightbearer Wizard protected by two floating crystals.

While you are in the courtroom listening to the NPCs’ dialogue, you will notice that a line will go dead. This will be the notice about the Witness.

Defeat The Witness

Once you are notified about the Witness in the courtroom, you need to leave the room and follow the red path to the Witness.

You will see the hand-like statue after you follow the red path, which is the place where the Witness was created.

Therefore, you need to defeat the Witness there to complete the mission. You will encounter the Witness in the area once you enter.

The Witness you need to defeat will be a giant, like a big-headed monster.

While you focus on defeating the Witness, Zavalla, Ikora, Cayde, and Crow will help you fight off weaker foes.

After you defeat the Witness in the place where it was created, you will successfully complete the Iconoclasm mission in Destiny 2.

Furthermore, the mission is much more complicated than the previous ones, as you need to complete different objectives and sub-objectives occasionally during the mission.
