A derelict spaceflight complex in the ruins of Old Russia.
Before the Collapse, the Cosmodrome was run by the Russian Federal Bureau of Aeronautics, and was an important location to space travel and maintaining contact with the colonies during the Golden Age. Now, the remains of old ships can still be seen on the launchpad. The area has now become overrun with Fallen and Hive since the SIVA crisis.
There are two landing zones in the Cosmodrome. One of them is located in the Steppes, right by the location's only vendor, Shaw Han. The other landing zone is at the north of the map, in the Skywatch. The Mothyards area is located between them, and the Forgotten Shore can be reached from the Skywatch.
Cosmodrome's resource are Spinmetal Leaves, they can be harvested from red canisters they grow on.
A cave in Skywatch contains a charred pile which says "A million deaths are not enough for Master Rahool" if disturbed by the player. This is carried over from the first game, where this place was known as the "Loot Cave" because of high enemy spawn rate, which allowed players to farm Engrams endlessly. This exploit was patched, and the pile of remains along with the message were added as an easter egg.
