With the recent addition of Destiny 2: Forsaken, one of the most popular shooters around has become bigger, better and even more confusing than ever before. Whether you’re new to the franchise or a veteran Guardian, this guide will act as a hub for all things Forsaken.

Here you’ll find guides and walkthroughs for specific missions, how to find Exotic weapons and how to really boost those Power level numbers. We’ve tried to avoid spoilers for the main campaign for the most part and will be sure to flag any pages that might ruin your immersion, like our review.

If there are any guides you’d like to see about Destiny 2: Forsaken, then please get in touch with your suggestions! You can find all the information about the new update here.

Exotic weapons

  • Two-Tailed Fox Exotic rocket launcher
  • The main perk for this weapon is Twintails, which allows the rocket launcher to fire off two rockets, one Solar, and another Void, that track the same target which makes for an interesting explosion on impact. This weapon is particularly useful in PvP, so keep your eye out for it dropping.

  • Cerberus+1 Exotic Auto Rifle
  • This rifle has four barrels and its main perk means that it shoots erratic bullets from each gun barrel at the same time. ‘Nuff said.

  • Lord of Wolves
  • The Lord of Wolves shotgun was a fan favourite in Destiny and it’s no different this time around in Forsaken. This energy weapon shoots Solar shrapnel at your enemies and packs a punch in PvP mode.

Increase your Power and unlock new Subclass paths

  • Destiny 2 Power, XP and Engram basics
  • If you’re somewhat new to the franchise, it would be worth checking out this guide to learn about the levelling up systems in Destiny 2 and how to use your time effectively to get maximum gains and pump up those rookie numbers.

  • How to hit 600 Power
  • If you’ve reached the soft cap of 500 and want to boost your Power ahead of the upcoming raid, check this guide out for a structured approach to getting the most out of Destiny 2: Forsaken.

  • Unlocking Subclass paths and new Supers
  • You are now able to unlock new Subclass paths and Supers in Forsaken but how to do it is a little different from the base game, so here’s our guide on how to progress further.

    You can also check out the details of the new Subclasses here.

Challenges, triumphs and public events

The Last Wish raid

The Dreaming City
