On Mars, activate the Escalation Protocol, a world public event, to summon a horde of hive that you must fend off. As Guardians complete each level of the Protocol event, enemies progressively become more difficult. At Level 7, a final boss appears. Complete all 7 stages to acquire weapons and gear specific to this activity. For the Wayfarer seal, Guardians must complete this activity to acquire the weapons and armour from the Warmind Collection Badge.
Ikelos Weapons have a chance of dropping from defeating the final boss. Weapon drops vary from week to week, so be sure to view the Dashboard to see what boss and weapon rotation is available this week.
