How to get the Cayde's Exotic Stash preorder bonus in Destiny 2

Preordering Destiny 2: Forsaken rewards players with the Cayde's Exotic Stash, a collection of cosmetic items.


Games and preorder bonuses go hand-in-hand, and Destiny 2: Forsaken is no different. The Cayde’s Exotic Stash is a collection of cosmetic goodies for those players who were willing to slap down the funds and preorder Destiny 2: Forsaken before it was released. Now that the game is in players' hands, they want to know how to get the preorder bonuses they were promised.

How to get Cayde’s Exotic Stash preorder bonus

To unlock the Cayde’s Exotic Stash preorder bonus, players will need to do a couple of things. The first task is to complete the Destiny 2: Forsaken campaign, this should take players between 6 and 12 hours, depending on their Power level and how much grinding they need to do to reach the Power 460 recommendation.

After the campaign has been completed, the next step is to head to the Tower and speak with Amanda Holliday, the Chief Shipwright. Amanda Holliday is located in the Hangar, near where Cayde-6 used to hang out. Speak with Amanda to receive the Cayde’s Exotic Stash preorder bonus, which includes:

  • Standoff Emote
  • Queen of Hearts Ship
  • Cayde’s Duds Shaders
  • Last Hand Ace of Spades weapon ornament

The requirement of finishing the Destiny 2: Forsaken campaign to receive the preorder bonus is exactly the same as receiving Coldheart when Destiny 2 first launched back in 2017. With the cosmetic goods now secured, players can have a little bit of Cayde-6 with them forever.
