How to Beat Lightbearer Knight in Destiny 2 The Witch Queen

Destiny 2 beat Lightbearer Knight – This guide will show you how to beat the Lightbearer Knight in Destiny 2.

The Season of the Risen has finally arrived in Destiny, and after much anticipation, The Witch Queen update is now here. The update has brought a ton of content in the game. As long as I remember, the update was around 21 GB on Steam. There are a ton of new Exotics, a ton of new powerful Legendary weapons, and of course, Void 3.0.

As soon, you start the game after downloading the update. You will get two options:

  • Be Brave
  • Become Legend

Select “Be Brave” if you want to take things a bit casually. I chose “Become Legend”, because I already have two friends playing with me. So, we don’t mind a bit of challenge.

Anyway, jumping back to the main topic. After selecting your difficulty, you will be heading straight towards the main campaign, “The Arrival”. After few minutes into the campaign, you will come by a huge area where you will have to face a boss called the “Lightbearer Knight”.

The Lightbearer Knight

Lightbearer Knight is one of the first bosses that you come by in The Witch Queen. At first, one would think, that it is just a normal hive boss, by looking at it. But that is not the case, the Light Bearer Knight has powers that are similar to the guardians. The one, my friends and I faced, was literally using the Titan’s Shield Throw Super on us.

You have to keep your distance, especially if your power level is not a lot more than 1360. If you lose your focus even once, you will probably get one-shotted by the void shield.

Now the question is how to beat it?

How to Beat Lightbearer Knight

The process of beating the Lightbearer Knight was a bit confusing. But, we did figure the way. The first time you beat it, it will come back to life? And, why is that? Because, just like the guardians, these Lightbearer Hive enemies, have their own Ghosts. And these Ghosts respawn them back. The first time you beat the Lightbearer Knight, its Ghost will bring it back. Then your Ghost will tell you what to do. To beat the Lightbearer Knight, you have to destroy its Ghost, after eliminating it.

Just go near the Ghost of the Lightbearer Knight, and you will get a prompt syaing “G Press : When standing nearby, finish the Ghosts of defeated Hive Lightbearers“. So press G or whatever your “Finisher button” is. As soon as you do so, you will notice your character grab the ghost and crush it.

  1. Thanks, really helpful! I think my game glitched out. I was on the investigation mission on Mars and eliminated the Knight like 20 times trying to press x to finish it and nothing came up! I thought I was doing something wrong and couldn’t find anything anywhere online. Thanks for the clear and thorough information👍
