Location Earth
Description Hub for Emergency Logistics and Maneuvers. The base for current Vanguard operations in the Sol system.

The Hub for Emergency Logistics and Maneuvers, or H.E.L.M., is an instanced location which serves as a hub for seasonal content. It was originally introduced in the Season of the Chosen.

Overview

The H.E.L.M. landing zone consists of a small central area, with Post Box, Vault, and Quest Archive terminals available nearby. Seasonal vendors appear in other areas of the H.E.L.M., including the corridor extending from the central room, as well as the two wings that can be found down the stairs to the left and right of the landing zone. Behind the landing zone is a small hallway where Crow can usually be found.

Unlike the Tower, the H.E.L.M. keeps players in a first-person view. They are restricted from using weapons and abilities. While there is no matchmaking in this area, the H.E.L.M. supports fireteams of up to 6 players.

To obtain full access to the seasonal content found in the H.E.L.M., players must own that Season's Season Pass. Only the current Season Pass can be purchased. Previous seasons that still have content available in the game can be accessed by purchasing The Witch Queen Deluxe Edition, which includes the Season Passes for the Season of the Risen, Season of the Haunted, Season of Plunder, and Season 19. All Year 5 seasonal content will remain in the game until the release of the next expansion, Lightfall.
