Destiny guide: Earth Cosmodrome guide


Destiny tells the story of a fallen civilisation – our civilisation. When humanity discovered the Traveller on Mars, it sparked a Golden Age. We flocked to space, expanding to the edges of our solar system and beyond.

The seat of this great exodus was the Cosmodrome, a huge space station nestled on the Russian steppes. This is where the player’s Ghost finds their body, resurrecting them to combat the darkness, and it’s here where your adventures begin.

You won’t spend too much time on Earth, as it’s mostly a leaping off point for the adventures you’ll have out there in space. But there’s still plenty to see and do before you’re ready for the greater challenges ahead. What you do here lays the foundation for everything to come.

This Earth Cosmodrome Destination guide is the first part of our full Destiny walkthrough. It combines step-by-step mission walkthroughs, a treasure hunting guide, and tips and tactics for the single Strike.

Grab what you need, guardian. It’s a tough old world out there:
