Destiny 2 Dashboard

Vanguard Operations

  • By now, you have ventured throughout the solar system driving back our enemies and have a general understanding of how the mechanics of this massive world work.
  • Here are some guides provided by Shattered Vault that go into more detail on some of the more general mechanics, such as Heroic Public Events, Randomly Rolled Weapons, and Season Preparations.  

Vanguard Database: Destinations

  • Throughout your journey in Destiny 2, you will venture to multiple locations all across the solar system.
  • Some locations specifically are more dynamic in nature, with their own special activities to partake in, specific loot to hunt, and secrets to uncover. 

Vanguard Tower Special Events

  • Throughout the year, Destiny 2 features limited-time events for all players to partake in! When active, Eva Levante, everyone’s favourite Space Grandma, makes an appearance in the Tower to get Guardians started with the event. 
  • Seasonal Events typically offer a unique activity or objective, with new loot and triumphs to earn.

Competitive Activities

  • If you’ve stepped into the Crucible, you probably realize that it’s a completely different environment than what you are used to in the PvE side of things. Most often, you will find yourself in a fast-paced environment against fellow Guardians. 
  • Destiny’s PvP game modes offer a variety of team-related objectives, with the main game mode being Quickplay Control.


  • The Drifter invites two teams of four to partake in his Gambit arena, a PvEvP activity that requires Guardians to eliminate enemies, collect and bank motes, summon a boss and defeat it before the opposing team does!
  • While banking motes, each team has an opportunity to send blockers to the opposing team to prevent them from banking.
  • Furthermore, one Guardian from each team can also invade the other side to eliminate as many opponents as they can for a short time. 

The Destiny Community

One of, if not the most amazing part of the Destiny experience, is the people that you meet and interact with over the years of playing and evolving with the game. As years go on, more and more community members have begun their journey with streamingcontent creation, and artwork! Visit the Community Focus and Artist Alley pages to view just a small portion of our community. Wanting more variety? Visit the Twitch or YouTube Directories to view more! (doing so will redirect you to the respective sites)

Visit the Third-Party Apps page to familiarize yourself with some of the major apps and websites that fellow Guardians have created to enhance your Destiny experience.
