[Top 10] Destiny 2 Best Bounties for XP

Destiny 2 Best Bounties for XP

Everybody progresses at their own pace, and that’s just fine. However there’s nothing wrong with wanting to get to a higher level in less time. For those folks we compiled a list of our picks of Destiny 2 bounties that will give you a heartier serving of that sweet xp.

How this list Works

We’ll start by listing bounties by who you can get them from, then by their type and how much Raw XP you can get from them.Raw XPis how much the bounty gives you if you don’t have any bonuses active. 

Bounty Types

Weekly Bounties - 12000 XP per Bounty

Most vendors carry two weekly bounties, you have 7 days to complete these before they expire.

Daily Bounty - 6000 XP per Bounty

Each vendor carries 4 dailies, these are a easier than weekly bounties. Since each daily grants you 6000 XP, completing 4 bounties will grant you 2400 XP. Which equals 2 weeklies. Doing all weekly and daily bounties from a vendor will grant you a total of 4800 raw XP.

Repeatable - 4000 XP per bounty

These bounties can be done multiple times. They are very helpful but we will exclude them and focus more on dailies and weeklies which provide a bigger bang for your buck in XP. However, taking a few of these from a vendor is never a bad choice.


Vanguard Bounties

Head over to Commander Zavala at the Tower to find these bounties and also rank up your reputation with the Vanguard for XP and various rewards.

Since bounties change every day or every week, we’ll give you an example of a bounty that is normally available from a vendor.
