Destiny 2: Forsaken ultimate guide: tips, hints and walkthroughs for your adventures in space

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.

Destiny 2: Season of Opulence

The seventh season is here to wrap up Year 2 nicely in Destiny 2.

  • Season of Opulence overview
  • Here's everything you need to know about the Season of Opulence including new in-game events, Pinnacle weapons and more.

  • The Menagerie
  • The new six-player activity is a grind, but the rewards are great.

  • Tribute Hall
  • Here's everything you need to know about getting started in Emperor Calus' Tribute Hall.

Exotic weapons

  • Bad Juju
  • Here's how to get your hands on a revamped Destiny classic.

  • Lumina
  • Lumina, Thorn's Light-filled sister, heals your allies and boosts your weapon damage, so here's how to get it.

  • Truth
  • The quest for the Truth Exotic Rocket Launcher is now live and it's back to the Prison of Elders.

  • Thorn
  • Here's how to get your hands on the ridiculously powerful Thorn.

  • The Last Word
  • You’re going to need to suffer through the Crucible to get it, but here's our guide to finding The Last Word hand cannon.

  • 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.

  • Wish-Ender Bow
  • When fully drawn, you can see targets through walls and inflict damage on multiple enemies with a single shot. This weapon will be available every three weeks as part of The Shattered Throne dungeon.

  • Malfeasance
  • This Exotic hand cannon is closely tied to Gambit and comes with a deadly perk.

  • Thunderlord
  • Here's how to get your hands on Destiny 1 favourite, the Thunderlord Exotic machine gun.

Desiny 2: Forsaken - 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.

Ascdendant Challenge

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 2
  • You're heading to Forfeit Shrine for this challenge, and we recommend taking a buddy along to help you.

  • Ascendant Challenge week 5
  • This is the easiest of all the challenges so far, but it does require you to have Tincture of Queensfoil.

  • Ascendant Challenge week 6
  • 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.

The Dreaming City

  • Dreaming City hidden cats
  • Here are the location of all the cats hidden in the Dreaming City. If you present them with a Small Gift, they'll give you some Legendary gear in return!


  • The Shattered Throne
  • Here's our guide on how to complete Destiny 2: Forsaken's first dungeon, The Shattered Throne.

Challenges, triumphs and public events

  • Oracle Engine Offering and Corsair Down
  • These quests appear after the main campaign and link with challenges from Petra Venj, so for those looking for a rewarding and unusual challenge should look here.

  • Gravetide Summoner
  • If you’re looking to boost your Power level, then have a go at this bounty from Spider in the Tangled Shore.

  • Here's the recommended Power level and how to get started in the Last Wish raid.

  • Clan challenges
  • A guide to completing the Clan Bounties available in Destiny 2: Forsaken.

Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter
