Destiny 2: Season of Defiance – How To Gather Awoken Favors

The release of the new season of Destiny 2 has gotten fans excited about all the amazing stuff that has arrived. Season of Defiance has the Lightfall expansion campaign along with it as well as weekly quests. There is the new major Activity of Defiant Battlegrounds, which is like the normal Battlegrounds but you will have to face up against hordes of opponents to save prisoners of The Witness.

The new subclass of Strand has also joined the party with the Awoken Favors being a much-talked-about feature of the season already. In that regard, the following guide will help players in understanding all about the Awoken Favors and how to collect them. 

Destiny 2: Season of Defiance – How to gather Awoken Favors

Before we begin with the collection of the Awoken Favors, there are some things to know about this new addition to Destiny 2. They are also called Favors and are buffs that can be given to yourself and other players of your Fireteam as you take on opponents in specific manners while participating in Seasonal Activities

There are a total of three types of Awoken Favors in the game as discussed here. 

Exemplar of Zeal 

The Exemplar of Zeal favor enhances recharging of Grenade Ability and can be gotten while defeating enemies using the Heavy ammo

Destiny 2 - Lightfall - Exemplar of Zeal

Exemplar of Justice 

The Exemplar of Justice favor strengthens the recharge of Melee Ability and you will have the chance of getting it through the final blows of Ability

Exemplar of Grace 

The Exemplar of Grace favor will strongly better your Mobility for some time and you will have the chance of getting it as you take down enemies via Special ammo

Now that we have learned all about the Awoken Favors, players will want to know how to gather them in the Season of Defiance. Players have to keep winning against enemies using Special Ammo, Heavy Ammo, or Abilities in the Defiant Battlegrounds.

The choice will vary, given which Exemplar you and your Fireteam players have gotten in the War Table

The other thing to keep in mind is that using Unyielding Favor armor will help players in getting Awoken Favors much more quicker. You will be able to get the Unyielding Favor armor by playing through Seasonal Activities that will upgrade your Seasonal Rank.

Players have to finish the ‘Awaken, Queensguard‘ quest that will lead them to get the Upgrades and War Table mentioned above. In the H.E.L.M., War Table will have the Upgrade section where you can spend War Table Upgrade Tokens to buy Favor Attunements. Once you unlock a Favor Attunement in exchange for an Exemplar, this will give you the chance to get an Awoken Favor while on Defiant Battlegrounds. 

War Table Upgrade Tokens can be got via completion of Seasonal Challenges and you can then collect Favor Attunements. Nevertheless, you must have the minimum required amount to purchase your maiden Attunement through the starting quest. 

Players have to collect Awoken Favors in Defiant Battlegrounds as that is required to finish Season of Defiance’s weekly quests. Therefore, get all three Favor Attunements as quickly as possible. Additionally, you would also require the best Strand build for this, no matter whether you are a Hunter, Titan, or Warlock


Thus, that is all the information players will require when it comes to the Awoken Favors feature of the new season. This is something that will be required in the game for yourself and the team so get it soon.
