  • the challenge mode requirement is simply having FOUR MASSIVE DETONATIONS at once (minimum 16 bombs at the same time)
  • this means Oryx has to go from 100% to 1% health in ONE go
  • it has nothing to do with which people killed ogres or switching runners; you can have the same runner throughout the fight, it's fine
  • you will have to fight the Shade of Oryx at least 3 times per transition phase
  • you do not detonate any of the bombs until the final cycle
  • you detonate all 16 bombs at the same time
  • IT MAY NOT be possible to do this via No Knight method. You have to kill the Knights to prevent them from eating the bombs.
  • Feel free to look for workarounds but this is simply what we did.

  • Do the fight normally, killing Ogres, killing Knights. Assigning platform-jumpers 1, 2, 3, floaters, runner, whatever you usually do.
  • Shoot Oryx to stagger. Kill mobs.
  • DO NOT detonate bombs.
  • IF YOU DO NOT DETONATE BOMBS Oryx will summon the Shade Dimension for the transition, NOT the artillery barrage. This is what we want.
  • Kill extra thralls that spawn.
  • Oryx will move to the front and cast his "Dimension" so kill Knights on the left and right platforms.
  • Kill the shade.
  • Re-do the whole jumping/relic thing we all do.
  • Repeat this until the FOURTH CYCLE.
  • As usual, kill stuff. Stagger Oryx. Kill mobs.
  • Have four people run to each cluster of bombs. Detonate all 16 bombs at the same time.
  • Kill Oryx

The above is simply the cleanest/most flawless possible kill for it. However, if in case you lose some bombs, you'll have to do an extra cycle.
The important thing is you need Oryx to go from 100% to 1% in ONE go, and that means having at least 16 bombs available to detonate.
  • a second chest will appear
  • Normal Mode = calcified fragment, 310 weapon or helmet, and 310 artifact
  • Hard Mode = normal mode rewards, plus emblem, plus 320 weapon or helmet, 320 artifact, and a ship
  • Eris also gives you the Beltane shader, other goodies, plus 500 Crota's Bane rep. This is the reward for getting all 50 fragments per character.
