How to get Chitin Powder in Destiny 2

Chitin Powder is required for some of The Dawning Christmas event's most important ingredients in Destiny 2.
How to get Chitin Powder in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 players are running around each location trying to find all the necessary ingredients to bake sweet treats for their favourite NPCs as The Dawning Christmas event has kicked off, bringing with it exclusive rewards. 

From Null Taste, which requires you to deal final blows with Void damage, to Taken Butter, which tasks you with killing Taken, there are all sorts of ways Guardians can get their hands on Dawning ingredients.

One of the most elusive components is Chitin Powder, which is needed to bake Bright-Dusted Snowballs for Tess Everis and Eteric Coldsnaps for Variks.

Where to find Chitin Powder

Chitin Powder is a random drop from slaying Hive enemies.

The best option you got for farming kills is on the Moon, any Lost Sector within it will spawn Hive enemies, furthermore, you have the option to do the Altar of Sorrow activity, which spawns the most Hive enemies out of any free activity in the Destiny 2 sandbox.

As we've mentioned, since you don't need to get final blows with a specific kind of damage, you can pair your Hive farm with one that requires you to slay enemies with a specific type of damage, such as Void, Solar, or Arc.

And that's it! We hope this quick guide was useful for your Chitin Powder grind and get your hands on all the sweet rewards The Dawning has in store for you, including weapons, ships, and more.

Remember that you have until 4th January to get everything done before Eva Levante packs up her oven and she says goodbye until December 2022.
