The Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign mission list consists of eight main missions, and completing them all on Legendary difficulty will get you exclusive rewards from Nimbus, including a new Exotic armor piece. However, Legendary difficulty is no joke as the Shadow Legion, Tormentors, and Vex foes found on Neomuna provide a serious challenge for Destiny 2 players, especially if you're in a fireteam. Arguably the final two missions - Headlong and Desperate Measures - are the toughest, but persevere and you’ll be rewarded with some useful loot to launch you into the Lightfall endgame. Here’s the full Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign mission list and all the Legendary difficulty rewards up for grabs.

The Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign takes place over a 21-step quest that includes eight missions, one Strike, and lots of dialogue in between. Here is the full Lightfall campaign mission list in order:

  1. First Contact
  2. Under Siege
  3. Downfall
  4. Breakneck
  5. On The Verge
  6. No Time Left
  7. HyperNet Current (Strike)
  8. Headlong
  9. Desperate Measures

Except for the Strike, you can complete these missions on Normal or Legendary difficulty and even switch between the two if you want to adjust the difficulty, although this will affect the rewards you get. Speaking of which, wrap up the campaign by talking to Nimbus and they’ll dish out the rewards listed below if you braved the Legendary Lightfall campaign all the way through to the end.

The Lightfall campaign on Legendary is certainly a tough challenge, but generous rewards means it’s worth persevering. Here’s all the loot you’ll get for playing and finishing the full Lightfall campaign on Legendary difficulty, whether solo or with a fireteam:

  • New Exotic Armor: Upon finishing the Lightfall campaign, you’ll get to choose one of the two new Lightfalll Exotic armor pieces for your Class as a reward. You can get the other armor piece in Legend Lost Sectors. Some of these armor pieces are great for Destiny 2 Strand builds, so I highly recommend choosing those!
  • 1770 Power Gear Bundle: A full set of Rare armor and weapons at 1770 power, plus eight Upgrade Modules, to boost your power level.
  • 300 Strand Meditations: Strand Meditations are spent at the Pouka Pond on Neomuna to get Strand Aspects and Fragments, although 300 meditations is only enough to afford both Strand Aspects for your Subclass or one Fragment with change.
  • Sanctuary of Nefele emblem: A unique emblem to show off your Lightfall Legendary campaign completion.
  • Extra loot chests during missions: You’ll get two loot chests to plunder instead of one after completing a challenging encounter on Legendary difficulty, giving you more gear and Upgrade Modules to increase your power level.
