How to complete the Devious Thievery Challenge in Destiny 2 King’s Fall Raid

This challenge will be done during the Warpriest fight, which is the first major boss of the raid. You’ll encounter the Warpriest after you finish up the totems section and open the door.

Now for the Devious Thievery challenge, you will need to balance a few different buffs.

In the room, there are three plates, one on the left, one in the middle, and one on the right. These correspond to the three giant floating obelisks directly across from them.

Step on any of the three plates to begin the fight. Once you’ve started, each plate will get a series of ads, keep clearing until each side kills a Taken Knight; this will cause the back of the floating obelisks to start glowing. You need to step on the plates in the order based on which obelisk is glowing. Step on the plates in the correct order to grant a player with the Brand of the Initiate.

Begin to DPS the Warpriest and when the player with the Brand gets to roughly three seconds left, have a new player take it from them. This will spawn a Blighted Knight on one of the three possible plates. Swiftly go and kill the knight to pick up another buff called Brand Claimer. To complete the challenge, whoever picks up the Brand Claimer must also grab the Brand of the Initiate almost immediately.

You’ll need to move to the Blighted Knight as a team to pull off this feat. Once it’s down, continue to DPS the Warpriest. Rinse and repeat this every time you enter a DPS phase, and you’ll unlock the challenge when the War Priest is defeated.

Well, that’s everything you need to know about how to complete the Devious Thievery challenge in the Destiny 2 King’s Fall raid. If you haven’t seen it yet, they added Destiny 2 to Fortnite for some reason; here are all of the skins being offered.
