    Flashpoints are a weekly occurrence in Destiny 2 and can take place on any planet/moon. They are acquired as milestones from Cayde-6 upon his return to the farm. The milestone goes as follows:
    - Speak to Cayde-6 at the social space to start the Flashpoint Milestone
    - Complete the Mission "Patrol" (The Importance of Networking) at EDZ to unlock Patrol Missions on every planet
    - Complete 3 Patrol Missions at EDZ
    - Travel back to the social space and speak to Cayde-6 again to receive a Legendary Engram and continue the milestone
    - Go back to the EDZ and complete 6 public events (normal or heroic)
    - Travel back to The Farm and speak to Cayde-6 yet again to receive another Legendary Engram, completing the milestone and unlocking the achievement

    These steps will be more or less the same but on different planets during different weeks.

    EDIT: Since the release of Shadowkeep, talk to Shaxx at the tower, complete 1 game of crucible, take his quest back to complete it, and unlock this achievement.

    As you progress through the story you will unite the 3 Vanguard members (Zavala, Cayde-6, and Ikora) and they will join all the other vendors at the Farm and will be told to speak to them.

    Upon speaking to Cayde-6 you will be tasked with completing a milestone in the EDZ (Earth) to place down patrol beacons. Once the patrol beacons have been placed, you will be tasked with completing 3 patrols (just like in Destiny).

    Once you've completed 3 patrols, return to Cayde-6 and you will unlock the milestone for completing public events in the EDZ. After completing 6 of these you'll be told to go speak with Cayde-6. After speaking with him the achievement will pop.

    Up to date solution as of July 2020

    You can do the Flashpoint wherever it appears; it's no longer limited to the locations listed in the description. I just popped this achievement by completing a Flashpoint on Mars.


    You must be at the soft power level cap. As of the current Season of Arrivals, this is 1000. This may increase in future seasons. I've seen some reports that once you reach the cap, you still won't be able to see the Flashpoint until the next weekly reset.

    You need to complete the introduction quest for the world that currently has the Flashpoint (if that world has an introductory quest). These currently are:
    - European Dead Zone (Earth): "Enhance!"
    - Titan: "Enemy of My Enemy"
    - Nessus: "Exodus Black"
    - Io: "Dynasty"
    - Mars: "Data Recovery"

    There's a quest in the New Light section of the quest menu called "Introduction: Quests" that asks you to complete all of these, so that can help track your progress.

    How to complete a Flashpoint

    Every week, one world is assigned a Flashpoint. The current Flashpoint is listed on, or you can look at the Director and see which world has a gold challenge medal next to it.

    Flashpoint progress appears as a challenge for that world's vendor. The following activities contribute to your progress:

    - Lost Sectors: 10%. It appears to be 5% for killing the boss and 5% for opening the chest.
    - Public Events: 15%. Note that only regular, clock-initiated public events seem to count. Player-initiated public events that have a permanent map marker don't.
    - Heroic Public Events: 25%

    After you reach 100%, speak to the vendor for a piece of powerful gear and your achievement. If it doesn't pop immediately (it didn't for me), using the switch profile option and reloading your character should make it pop.

    FreamwholeWell stated - exactly how I approached this.

    I just popped this 22 July 2020 - I also needed to do the profile switch to trigger it. I'm not certain if this is required, but under the "Truimph" tab - there is a lore challenge for Flashpoint (whereever you did it). Try that if the unlock doesn't go - for me it popped when my ship appeared ready for action.
