Description The resolute Commander Zavala advises and outfits Titans as their Vanguard.

Commander Zavala is an NPC and Vendor inside of Destiny 2 and makes a return from the original Destiny as the Vanguard for the Titans. He can be found in one of two locations, but similarly to many other Vendors in the game, you can only find him in his second location once you have finished the game’s main campaign for the very first time with that particular character.


There are two different locations that you can find Commander Zavala in Destiny 2, and the pair of them are social spaces that you’ll be quite accustomed to by now:

  • The Farm – Around the nearby area of the Farm, you’ll be able to locate him with very little trouble once you have completed Fury(?). Talking to him for the first time unlocks access to Vanguard Strikes.
  • The Tower – Once you have completed the final Red War mission, Chosen, for the first time, Commander Zavala will move from The Farm to his permanent location in the Plaza area of The Tower, where you can find him on the left side of the Courtyard look over the ledge.


Just like many other Vendors in Destiny 2, Commander Zavala has a reputation bar that can be increased whenever you trade in Vanguard Tactician Tokens to him. He requires around 20 of these tokens to increase your reputation enough of the way to level up your reputation, which can then be traded in for Vanguard Tactician Engrams.
