Destiny 2 guide: complete campaign walkthrough and guides - updated for Forsaken

With year one of Destiny 2 behind us, alongside both of the disappointing Curse of Osiris and Warmind DLCs, Bungie is performing another Taken King-style resuscitation for its pet project with Forsaken, the game’s biggest expansion yet. Alongside new locations, abilities, weapons, modes, and activities, Forsaken lets Guardians loose on another, epic story campaign, made up of eight full missions with their own challenges and rewards. 

We’ve been playing Forsaken obsessively since release, like good little Guardians, and expanding our Destiny 2 campaign walkthroughs with detailed guides for each mission in case you’re stuck, or simply want to know the best strategy for tackling the firefights and challenges involved. You’ll also find walkthroughs for Destiny 2’s base campaign and its Curse of Osiris and Warmind expansions here, alongside the rest of our Destiny 2 guides, giving you tips and tricks for specific items, collectibles, and quests. Enjoy!
