Where is the H.E.L.M. in Destiny 2?

Discover the location of the H.E.L.M. so you can access it and start working through new quests in Destiny 2.


There are a lot of locations to find in Destiny 2 and one of the newest additions is the H.E.L.M. This new area was added with Season of the Chosen and has a lot of players wondering, “Where is the H.E.L.M.?” Given that the Tower doesn’t appear to have expanded, and given there is no way to walk there from the courtyard, locating the H.E.L.M. can give some Guardians a moment’s pause.

Where is the H.E.L.M.?

To find the location of the H.E.L.M. in Destiny 2, simply open the map of the Director by pressing or holding the appropriate button, on PC it is Tab. The H.E.L.M. now has its own icon right above the Traveler.

In order to enter the H.E.L.M. and interact with the War Table (an important step after you’ve earned War Table reputation), you will need to select the H.E.L.M. icon and then hit the Launch button. You will fly into this self-contained area and be able to access the War Table and complete various quest steps.

It’s worth noting that this area cannot be accessed from any other location in the game. That is to say, you can’t walk there from somewhere else in the Tower. Thankfully, the H.E.L.M. contains everything you need, including access to the Vault and the Postmaster, so you don’t need to be fast traveling back and forth between different areas of the Tower. Unfortunately, you cannot access Vendors while in the H.E.L.M., such as Banshee-44, Zavala, or the limited-time Vendors like Saint-14 or Lord Saladin.

Now that you know where to find the H.E.L.M. in Destiny 2 and what it contains, hopefully you can have a better time at pushing through all that new seasonal content. There are plenty to do, so make sure you spend some time farming the Legend Lost Sectors for a chance of those new Exotics!
