Head to Hawthorne and pick up the quest, A Single Thread. 

To start the Duality dungeon, players must first visit Hawthorne and pick up the quest, A Single Thread. From here, open up the Moon and look for the new Duality dungeon icon on the left. Simply select the dungeon, choose the difficulty, and hit launch whenever you’re ready. For those looking to play the Normal version, you need to be at least 1550 Power. The Master difficulty is also available at launch, but you will need to be a significantly higher Power level. Check out our Duality dungeon guide for help clearing each encounter.

The Duality dungeon was added to Destiny 2 on May 27, 2022 during Season of the Haunted. This dungeon takes players on a daring mind-heist into the mindscape of the exiled emperor Calus to steal his secrets. This is the first bit of endgame content players have received since the Vow of the Disciple raid where players fought and defeated Rhulk, the last of his kind and a disciple of the Witness.

For the Duality dungeon, Artifice armor makes a return, but only for the Master version. This armor includes an additional mod slot, allowing players to use one additional artifact mod. While it doesn’t sound like a big deal, it has a significant impact on builds as players can now dedicate other slots to things like Wells and Warmind Cells if they wish.
