Destiny 2 Beyond Light added a big campaign, a massive destination in the form of Europa, and the first Darkness Subclasses - Stasis. There's even more to get in terms of gear too, including the Crystocrene armor sets, fit for a sub-zero expedition, and the Lament Exotic chainsaw sword. However, unlocking all this gear and powering up your Stasis Subclasses involves a lot of quests and time spent exploring Europa. To help out, we've collected all our Destiny 2 guides for the Beyond Light expansion below so that you can get through all your quests with ease to quickly max out your Stasis subclass and unlock some new Exotics. 

How to get The Lament

The Destiny 2 Lament Exotic Sword is an excellent heavy weapon and well worth getting as soon as possible if you've got Beyond Light. The chainsaw sword has quite a long quest attached, but our guide should speed up the process as it's got some useful advice and time-saving tips.

The Destiny 2 Aspect of Destruction questline will unlock the second Stasis Aspect for your Class and caps off the Born in Darkness questline. If you want to fully power up your Stasis Subclasses, you'll want to tackle this quest as soon as you unlock it, and our step-by-step guide will help you do just that.  

Destiny 2 Umbral Incursions

As well as Aspect quests, you'll need to unlock Fragments to add small boosts and abilities to your Stasis Subclasses. These Fragments are unlocked by completing Fragment quests from the Exo Stranger, such 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 so you can get all the Stasis Fragments quickly.
