Destiny 2 guide: complete campaign walkthrough and guides for how to save the Traveler

Welcome home, Guardian! Oh, well, we would say that if your home hadn't been destroyed by the invading Cabal Red Legion... But hey! We're just happy that Destiny 2 is finally here and we get to save the Traveler.

This is our Destiny 2 walkthrough, which will cover all of the main campaign missions to get you through the story. Beyond the list of missions, you'll find the rest of our Destiny 2 guides, giving you tips and tricks as well as individual guides on specific items and collectibles.

Destiny 2 walkthrough

As you make your way through Destiny 2, you'll encounter plenty of adventures, world quests, and other activities to keep you busy. However, if you want to open up every region in the solar system and unlock more cool stuff, you'll need to progress through the main campaign missions.

The first time you play through the campaign these missions will be single player only, so you'll need to rely on your own skills.

Destiny 2 Tips

There are lots of different systems at work in Destiny 2, which can make the game feel daunting - especially early on. If you're after some pointers to improve your experience then check out our essential Destiny 2 tips to find out the things we wish we knew before we started playing.

Destiny 2 Classes

Titan, Hunter, or Warlock - which one should you pick?

Once you've chosen your class, you'll want to know how to level them up, so make sure you check out how to unlock every Guardian class and subclass in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Levelling

Destiny 2’s levelling systems are friendlier than those of the original game, but they’re also very different. Whether you’re a returning Guardian or a newcomer, there’s a lot to learn, so we’ll show you how to level up fast in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Sparrow

Sparrows were a standard form of transport in the original Destiny, but their presence is notably lacking when you start the sequel. If you're tired of walking, here's how you get a Sparrow in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Chests

There's plenty of loot to be had in Destiny 2 by tracking down Region, Lost Sector, and Treasure chests. Get searching for them with our Destiny 2 Chest locations guide.

Destiny 2 Legendary Shards

Legendary Shards have two uses in Destiny 2. You can use them to power up your gear, and we have full details in our Destiny 2 infusion guide.

They're not the easiest item to obtain, so we'll show you how to get Legendary Shards in Destiny 2.
