Destiny 2: Lightfall expansion was released in February 2023 and the campaign is accessible to all Guardians who purchased it. If you’re curious about how long it is going to take you, and what the rewards are for finishing it here’s a look at all campaign missions in Destiny 2: Lightfall.

When jumping into any new Destiny 2 content drop, blitzing through the campaign is often the top priority when setting out. Completing the campaign on Legendary is especially useful when starting out as it jumpstarts you straight to 1770 Power, getting you much closer to the end game.

Not only that but this time the campaign also unlocks a new subclass, Strand. So regardless of whether you jump in on classic difficulty or the steeper Legendary challenge, getting each story mission out of the way early on is vital to unlocking powerful Strand builds.

Below is a full look at all campaign missions included as part of the Lightfall story in Destiny 2.

How many Destiny 2: Lightfall missions are there?

In total, there are eight, full-length missions to undertake if you want to complete the Destiny 2: Lightfall campaign.

If you read on, you’ll see that we’ve provided the name for every mission in Lightfall below, as well as the recommended power levels required if you’re going to attempt them on Legendary.

Destiny 2 Lightfall gameplay
Lightfall’s campaign features eight main story missions.

Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign missions list

  • First Contact (Recommended Power on Legendary – 1610)
  • Under Siege (Recommended Power on Legendary – 1620)
  • Downfall (Recommended Power on Legendary – 1650)
  • Breakneck (Recommended Power on Legendary – 1670)

  • No Time Left (Recommended Power on Legendary – 1700)
  • Headlong (Recommended Power on Legendary – 1740)
  • Desperate Measures (Recommended Power on Legendary – 1750)

While there are eight main campaign missions to clear in Lightfall, this obviously doesn’t consider any bonus activities along the way. For example, there is a strike between No Time Left and Headlong you must complete that is not listed here.

From side missions to Exotic quests and even just general resource gathering, there’s plenty more to see and do beyond this core path too. There’s plenty of reason to venture back through these eight missions as well.

Whether it’s to seek out the Legendary difficulty rewards, get pinnacle gear, or get the campaign finished on your second and third characters, you’ll be experiencing these campaign missions a fair few times in Lightfall.

Destiny 2 Lightfall Exotic quests list

  • Strider (Unlocks Winterbite glaive, obtained after clearing ‘Welcome to the Hall of Heroes’ questline)
  • The Final Strand (Unlocks Final Warning sidearm, obtained after unlocking all Strand fragments)
  • Unfinished Business (Unlocks Deterministic Chaos machine gun, given by Nimbus)

After clearing the campaign you’ll have access to all the Exotic quests in Destiny 2: Lightfall. Completing Exotic quest rewards unique Exotic weapons that are central to specific builds.

Those looking to get the most out of Destiny 2 as possible will want to complete all of these quests and gather as many Exotics as possible.
