Taken Assault VENUS Quest in Destiny: The Taken King

Taken Assault VENUS Quest in Destiny: The Taken King – How to find Champion “Taken War: Petra”

The Taken Assault VENUS quest is part of The Taken War Questline and puts you up against a pretty strong champion in a public event on Venus.


The Taken War Questline has very similar bounties as the ones in House of Wolves. You seek out public events, in this case in on venus (Shattered Coast, Ishtar Commons or The Citadel) and kill a champion that spawns at the end of the event.

In the case of The Taken War, there’s a bit more to do, so here’s the breakdown. First, you will need a fireteam or at least one more player near you.

IMPORTANT: YOU NEED A FIRETEAM OR MULTIPLE PLAYERS AROUND YOU TO TRIGGER THE CHAMPIONS

❱ KILL 2 CHAMPIONS

The Champion appears after you killed enough of his minions during the public event. Focus on the bigger enemies known as captains and the champion will spawn soon. His name is Sho oulth, Horror of Oryx and can take quite a few rockets. You have to kill him twice for the Taken Assault: Venus quest step. Just stick around and wait for the next public event and kill him a second time.

❱ COLLECT THE BATTLE WRECKAGE

You will be awarded with the battle wreckage automatically after killing the champion.

❱ COMPLETING THE QUEST STEP

After you killed the champion twice, you have to return to Petra and turn in your quest item. This completes this quest step and you will get a new target on mars.
