Bungie set the tone for all sci-fi FPS shooters with the Halo Series. So it’s no surprise that when they split from the IP and created a proper sci-fi RGP, it quickly took center stage. First came Destiny, followed by the sequel and now there is Destiny 2: Forsaken. This massive expansion pack features an insane new adventure and ‘dungeon’ crawler-style series of raids for you and your squad to go on to avenge the death of Cayde-6. This expansion is known as challenging, heartfelt, and at times darkly beautiful. To see if this expansion pack is worth it, take a look at our review.
Destiny 2: Forsaken Premise
Destiny 2: Forsaken is a first-person shooter set in a far-future version of the Milky Way galaxy. Flawlessly blending elements of RPGs and MMOs, this expansion pack will have players take on the role of their custom character known as the Guardian a year after the events of The Red War to avenge the death of Cayde-6 and stop Prince Uldren from continuing his various wars.
Destiny 2: Forsaken Main Characters
The Guardian – The main player character, everything will be custom.
Prince Uldren – One of the main antagonists in the game. Leader of the Barons and brother of the Queen of the Reef.
Cayde-6 – Hero murdered by Uldren Sov while trying to prevent a prison break in the Prison of Elders.

Destiny 2: Forsaken Codes, Cheats, Unlocks, and Achievements
Secret Wall Of Wishes codes
The Wall Of Wishes is a secret room found hidden at the beginning of the Last Wish raid. It can be accessed solo. To reach the Wall Of Wishes, simply load the Last Wish raid and proceed until the room before the first encounter (Kalli). Instead of starting the encounter, go left and jump to the series of grassy platforms with glowing plants to reach the room. To enter a code, shoot the panels and stand on the plate once the full code has been entered.
An image of all currently known codes can be found here. When shooting the plates, do not use weapons with explosive/ricochet rounds, as they can end up hitting other plates unintentionally. The game will give you free primary ammo when you are running low. There currently seems to be no way to return to the Wall Of Wishes after using a warp wish (besides going on another guardian or joining someone else’s lobby).
You can access the chest between the first and second encounters when using the warp to the second encounter code. This allows you to get at least one thing solo from the raid each week (per character). It is also possible for a Warlock and Titan to reach the raid chest between the second and third encounter. The chest from Wish 2 requires a Glittering key (obtained from completing encounters in the raid).
Getting Ace Of Spades Exotic hand cannon
Play through the “Forsaken” campaign to acquire Cayde’s Will (Exotic Quest item). Successfully complete the “Forsaken” campaign, then speak to Banshee at the Tower to begin the exotic quest steps. Most of the steps are obvious. To easily complete the step that requires 250 hand cannon kills in a strike, simply ignore a strike after starting one and just farm hand cannon kills in the open world for them to count towards the strike hand cannon kills. The only step that is not clear is finding Cayde’s secret caches on multiple planets. When you are near the caches, a message will appear. The following are the locations of all four secret Cayde caches:
- Cache 1: In Firebase Hades in the EDZ, at the entrance through the Sunken Isles passage.
- Cache 2: In the Wraith Mines on Io.
- Cache 3: Starting from Exodus Black on Nessus, go right down and past the teleporter pad.
- Cache 4: Far south at the Jetsam Of Saturn in the Tangled Shore.
After finding all the caches, you will unlock the “Ace Of Spades” story mission. Complete it, and then return to Banshee to get Cayde’s Exotic hand cannon.
Getting The Chaperone Exotic shotgun
Play the Crucible until the “Holiday Family Pursuits” item randomly drops. The quest steps for it are obvious. You must earn shotgun kills. You also need to earn kills with specific elements in the Crucible to reach 100% for all three and get 15 Guardian kills in Gambit.
Unlocking all three new subclasses
In Destiny 2: Forsaken, all three classes have three additional subclasses (one solar, arc, and void). To unlock each new subclass, you must find the “Seed Of Light” special item. To get the first Seed Of Light, complete the first “Forsaken” DLC mission to get a milestone to collect “Visions Of Light”, which randomly drop from defeated enemies. Complete Public Events in the Tangled Shore to quickly reach 100% for Visions Of Light. After completing the challenge, you will be directed to Io to play through a story mission.
Part of the way through the mission, you will get the Seed Of Light, which you can use to unlock one of the three new subclasses for your character. To get the second and third Seed Of Light, complete the Blind Well special Public Event in the Dreaming City. The Blind Well is located in the cathedral, through the huge doors found in the Divalian Mists. At the top, you can activate the event with special items and different tiers.
You can purchase these tiered items from Petra Venj in exchange for Dark Fragments. To get the second Seed Of Light, complete Tier 2 of the Blind Well. There is a small chance a Seed Of Light will drop. Thus, it may take multiple attempts before it drops.
The third Seed Of Light drops from defeating Kalli, the Corrupted, in the Last Wish raid. It also can be obtained by giving the “Offering to the Oracle” during the final week of the curse in the Dreaming City (every three weeks). After interacting with the Oracle Engine, you will open a portal to the Queen’s Court and meet Mara Sov. She will give you a chest with loot and a Seed Of Light.
Secret “Cataloger” Legendary emblem
Collect at least 1,500 total items in the game to unlock a secret “Cataloger” Legendary emblem that displays the total number of items you have obtained.
Secret Gambit Legendary emblem
Have all four team members deposit 15 motes at the same time during a Gambit match to unlock a secret Gambit Legendary emblem that displays the total number of motes you have deposited in Gambit.
Hidden “Secret Treasure” Legendary emblem
After killing the Mindbender, look above the portal in that room to find a hidden key. You can jump up the side of the portal to reach it. Then, go outside and to the right to find a door with runes on it. Use the key to open the door. There is a chest inside with the “Secret Treasure” Legendary emblem in it.
Infusion now costs glimmer and materials, but weapons and gear can be infused to a higher power level for only 5,000 glimmers if the weapon or gear being infused are the exact same.
Getting Cayde’s Exotic Stash
Successfully complete the “Forsaken” campaign, then return to the Tower and speak with Amanda Holliday to get Cayde’s ship and other bonuses. Note: This is a pre-order bonus and may not be available if your copy of the game was not pre-ordered.
Heroic Public Event requirements
Successfully complete the indicated requirements to unlock and complete the Heroic Public Events in the “Forsaken” DLC.
Secure The Wanted Enemy
Location: Tangled Shore
Locate the crashed cell pod and defeat the two waves of enemies to make the Wanted Enemy emerge from the pod. Damage the Wanted Enemy until the pod begins to exhume chilled gas. Kill the Wanted Enemy to complete the normal Public Event.
Heroic requirement: After the Wanted Enemy emerges from the pod, keep shooting him until the pod is surrounded by corrosion. Then, shoot the vents on the bottom sides of the pod until cores come out of them (two on each side). Grab the cores and throw them at the Wanted Enemy until it is refroze. While frozen, stand in the designated circle and defeat the incoming enemy reinforcements. Clear the waves of enemies until you reach 100% to complete the Heroic Public Event.
The Rift Generator
Location: Dreaming City
Defend the Generator Core from all the enemies spawning until the timer reaches zero. Keep the Generator Core from taking damage, and it will slowly restore itself.
Heroic requirement: Keep the Core Integrity high. Blights will spawn in the water on the beach. Destroy three Blights (large black orbs). The Blights will only spawn if the Core Integrity stays high. You will then teleport to the Ascendant Realm. Disrupt the restoration ritual. Defeat all the enemies inside and the boss that spawns to complete the Heroic Public Event.
