Essentially a series of escalating encounters, Battlegrounds pit players against a sizeable Cabal force. 

There are side objectives too, like destroying power generators with unstable power cores and earning keys to unlock control panels, but for the most part you can expect to just keep shooting things.

Towards the end of each Battleground you'll meet a Cabal champion with a huge health bar.

Not only does it take some time to burn through, but it'll also send out Champions – so you'll need to equip anti-barrier, overload, and unstoppable mods from the Seasonal Artefact. Check out our guide here for more.

Tribute Chests

Once you finish a Battleground, you'll get the chance to crack open a Tribute Chest.

To do so, you'll not only need the Hammer Of Proving but enough Cabal Gold to forge a medallion.

Doing so will let you smash open the chest and earn bonus loot.
