Destinations are the various places which can be visited in Destiny 2.

Most of them consist of patrol zones, open-world areas containing activities, such as Patrols, Adventures and Public Events. Some Destinations are, or contain, social spaces — safe zones where players are unable to use their weapons and abilities. There are also special mission areas, which have to be launched separately from the map or a beacon in a patrol zone, and exist on their own maps, most of the time preventing players from meeting Guardians that are not a part of their fireteam. Each location contains several sub-areas, sectors. Lost Sectors found in patrol zones are a type of activity.

The Tower

The Tower is the main social space in Destiny, it is represented by the Traveler in the Director.

It has a larger player capacity and contains more vendors than any other location: Commander Zavala is in charge of strikes, Lord Shaxx handles the Crucible, The Drifter covers Gambit, Ada-1 runs Forge Ignitions, Suraya Hawthorne deals with Clan business, Tess Everis represents the Eververse, Banshee-44 is the gunsmith, Kadi 55-30 is the postmaster, Master Rahool is the cryptarch, Amanda Holliday is the shipwright, and the Vault allows players to store their equipment.

When a Live Event is active, its vendor can also be found in the Tower.


The planet Earth contains several destinations:

The European Dead Zone is a patrol zone occupied by the Fallen and Cabal, although Taken enemies can be found in certain areas. Devrim Kay is the main vendor on this location, he offers bounties and hands out Engrams to players who bring him enough Dusklight Shards, a resource found in the EDZ.

The H.E.L.M is an instanced destination which serves as a seasonal hub for the content of all of the Seasons from Season of the Chosen onwards.

The Farm was a social space which used to function as a substitute of the Tower during the original Destiny 2 Campaign. It contained a postmaster and the vault, and was mainly used for several Exotic quests. It was accessed from the EDZ map. The Farm was removed alongside the release of Beyond Light.

It is the Leviathan, the flagship of Calus, former emperor of the Cabal. When Destiny 2 launched, it orbited Nessus. It later disappeared after the release of Beyond Light.
