Destiny 2: Season of the Deep campaign walkthrough

Allow us to guide you through the entire Into the Depths campaign for Season of the Deep in Destiny 2.

1

Destiny 2: Season of the Deep launched on May 23, 2023. Since there is no major DLC, this serves as the only campaign available in Season 21. The Into the Depths campaign has Guardians returning to Titan where Sloane is waiting. Over the course of the full season and campaign, Guardians will work to uncover the secrets that Titan holds which could help them in their conflict with The Witness.


The Descent

Before you can begin the Into the Depths campaign for Season of the Deep, you must first complete the intro mission called The Descent. This mission will launch automatically the first time you launch Destiny 2 during Season 21. If for some reason you are not launched into it, you can find The Descent mission on the map of the H.E.L.M.

The mission itself is straightforward, requiring players to defeat Taken, Hive, and locate Sloane on Titan. One of the only tricky parts is the Silence the Battlesong objective that requires players to capture three plates. It can get a bit hairy, so Witherhoard is a great option for solo players who need some relief.

The final point where a Guardian could get caught up is the Align the Communication Array puzzle. Simply look down at the little monitor on each dish and notice there is a triangle. The inner part of the triangle represents the sweet spot, so simply interact with each dish until the screen turns from red to blue. When you’re done, it’s smooth sailing.

  7. Wait until next week

The first week of the Into the Depths campaign is an easy one but does introduce players to some of the systems they will see throughout the Season of the Deep. This includes the new Salvage seasonal activity, and a mission called ‘Operation Thunderbolt” shows off the seasonal gameplay loop as far as the campaign is concerned.

  2. Complete the Salvage activity
  3. Complete the mission "Mayday, Mayday"
  4. Witness the conversation in the H.E.L.M.
  5. Bring the coral to Sloane in the H.E.L.M.
  6. Speak to Sloane via the holoprojector in the H.E.L.M.
  7. Wait until next week

The Season of the Deep story is standard stuff. The Salvage activity includes matchmaking so you can basically sleep through that. However, the "Mayday, Mayday" mission does not include matchmaking, so it can be tricky if you're doing it solo. There are sections where add clearing is required, and also a boss fight with a Wizard. You'll want something with range for the Wizard. I used a Rocket Launcher with the Tracking Module perk and that worked fine.
