Destiny 2: Forsaken has made the franchise bigger and better than ever before, with more to come in the year ahead.
Whether you’re new to Destiny or a veteran Guardian, this guide will cover any and all things Forsaken and beyond as we follow the Destiny 2 roadmap.
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.
If you’re still unsure if Destiny 2 is the game for you, then check out our Destiny 2: Forsaken review.

- Two-Tailed Fox Exotic rocket launcher
- Cerberus+1 Exotic Auto Rifle
- Lord of Wolves
- Wish-Ender Bow
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.
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.
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.
When fully drawn, you can see targets through walls and inflict damage on multiple enemies with a single shot. It also destroys those pesky Taken crystals.
This Exotic hand cannon is closely tied to Gambit and comes with a deadly perk.
Here’s how to get your hands on Destiny 1 favourite, the Thunderlord Exotic machine gun.

The weekly Ascendant Challenge can be acquired from Petra Venj in the Dreaming City. Each week she moves to a different location around the map and so far the challenges work in a six-week rotation, so week one and week seven’s challenges are the same, and so on. This is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
- Ascendant Challenge Week 1
- Ascendant Challenge Week 2
- Ascendant Challenge week 3
- Ascendant Challenge Week 4
- Ascendant Challenge week 5
- Ascendant Challenge week 6
This Ascendant Challenge takes place in the Lost Sector of Aphelion’s Rest.
You’re heading to Forfeit Shrine for this challenge, and we recommend taking a buddy along to help you.
The week 3 challenge requires a bit of precision in platforming, and culminates with a boss fight.
Watch out for floating debris in this challenge as you use an ancient relic to defeat your enemies.
This is the easiest of all the challenges so far, but it does require you to have Tincture of Queensfoil.
Week 6’s challenge is quite lengthy and there’s a tonne of enemies to get past, so we recommend bringing a sniper rifle and a shotgun for this one.
