Destiny 2: Beyond Light features one of the biggest destinations in recent memory and introduced a whole new subclass that's tied to seemingly countless quests, so there's plenty to find, unlock, and grind in the expansion. We've collected all our Destiny 2: Beyond Light guides for you below so that you can easily find whatever resource you need for your current goals, whether you're trying to max out your Stasis subclass or unlock some new Exotics.

The Destiny 2 Lament Exotic sword has the second true-blue Exotic quest in the expansion, and while it's relatively short, it can take a lot longer if you don't know where to look. We've got some time-saving tips to help you grab this chainsaw sword as quickly as possible.

You'll need to find all the Destiny 2 Beyond Light Entropic Shards for two different questlines, one of which unlocks the Salvation's Grip Exotic grenade launcher. We've mapped out all nine shards so you can spend less time combing the landscape and more time flexing your new Stasis arsenal.  

Destiny 2 Umbral Incursions 

To maximize your Stasis subclass, you'll need to clear questlines available at the Stranger, including the optional Vanguard variants of Destiny 2 Umbral Incursions, Umbral Flames, and Umbral Infiltration. The objectives on these quests are a little inconsistent and more than a little grindy, so we've broken down how to clear each one efficiently.  

Aspect of Destruction

The Destiny 2: Beyond Light Aspect of Destruction questline is the key to unlocking more Stasis powers, so you'll want to tackle it as soon as you unlock it and knock it out as fast as possible. We've got a step-by-step guide to help you do just that.  

Born in Darkness Destiny 2 

The Born in Darkness Destiny 2 questline is also essential to upgrading your Stasis powers. It'll unlock powerfully new grenade types that can totally change the way you build your Guardian, so we've prepared a step-by-step guide to help you knock it out quickly.

While you're knocking out Stasis quests, you can also hoover up some Destiny 2 Beyond Light Europa armor by exploring the new destination per Variks' instructions. Here's where to find the hidden chests for all the armor pieces.  

Perdition Destiny 2 location 

The Perdition Destiny 2 Lost Sector is a keystone for a few quests, and it's not at all obvious where it is. But once you know where to look, it's easy to clear. We'll point you in the right direction.  

Destiny 2 loot cave 

Yes, there's a Destiny 2 loot cave. And yes, it's also in the Cosmodrome, which was added into the game alongside Europa. But no, it's not the be-all, end-all loot spot that was the original loot cave. Here's where to find it, and where to find an Easter egg for the loot cave of old.

How lovely it is to write the words Destiny 2 Hawkmoon. The iconic hand cannon has been totally rebuilt since its appearance in the original Destiny, and its latest incarnation is both totally different and completely unique. Here's how to get it.
