How to play any Destiny 2 activity in solo mode

Many of my favourite moments in Destiny 2 have come whilst shooting the shit with friends. But there are also times when, as Greta Garbo noted, you just want to grind alone. Maybe you’re sick of dealing with random blueberry players who still won’t pass the ball in The Corrupted strike. Or perhaps you’re dealing with the weird instancing glitch in the EDZ which is stopping some people from being able to interact with the Obelisk. Happily, a solution to playing Destiny 2 solo is at hand. It was shared with me by one of my in-game pals, and comes in the form of a script which blocks network ports to stop you matching with other players.

Before we get into detail, a couple of caveats. 1) I haven’t waded through Bungie’s Terms of Service, but it’s fair to assume the developer could choose to see this as a form of network manipulation, so use it at your own risk. The reason I’m sharing is that I think that because you’re only altering your own play experience, and not impacting anyone else, there’s a good chance it’ll be viewed as benign. 2) I don’t know who originally created the script, but if you do please let me know in the comments (with sourcing) and I’ll credit correctly.

There are several good reasons to want to play solo. Many bounties require racking up a certain number of kills with a specific weapon type, so being alone in an area with the correct kind of enemies means you don’t have to worry about having your kills stolen. Plus it can be fun to challenge yourself by doing strikes alone and at your own pace. Here’s how you activate solo mode.

Step 1: Paste the bolded text below into a notepad file and then save it as destiny2-solo.ps1

if (!([Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal][Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).IsInRole([Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole] "Administrator")) { Start-Process powershell.exe "-NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File `"$PSCommandPath`"" -Verb RunAs; exit }

New-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "Destiny2-Solo-4" -Direction Inbound -LocalPort 1935,3097,3478-3480 -Protocol UDP -Action Block

Write-Host "Destiny 2 Solo mode activated.  Press Enter to deactivate solo mode."


Remove-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "Destiny2-Solo-1" 

Remove-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "Destiny2-Solo-2" 

Remove-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "Destiny2-Solo-3" 

Remove-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "Destiny2-Solo-4"

Step 2: Make sure you’re in orbit, right click on the destiny2-solo.ps1 file and then select ‘Run with PowerShell’.

Step 3: Launch your chosen activity as normal. It may take a little longer to start as the game will attempt matchmaking, fail to find anyone, and then start the activity.

Step 4: In order to resume normal play, simply tab back to the PowerShell window and hit return, which will deactivate solo mode. 

I’ve been using this method to knock out some of the Polarized Fractaline bounties and to enable me to interact with the EDZ Obelisk (which seems to bug out if there are too many players in the instance). It’s also eerie to wander around the Tower with just the vendors and you there. Time to rob Eververse while there are no witnesses.

As an inveterate Hearthstone addict, Tim spends most of his time trying to explain why all Priest players are degenerates. The rest of his day is spent playing Destiny 2. Seriously, he's on it right now.

Is Destiny 2 worth playing as a solo player?

I play solo, 9-5 job, and I think it’s great at the moment. I didn’t buy shadowkeep but I did fork out 1000 silver for the season pass. Grinding the 100 levels is quite fun and makes doing bounties worth it. I haven’t raided properly since leviathan and don’t think I ever will. The vex offensive is really fun, 6 player match made and requires 0 communication and has great rewards and replay ability. I still play the menagerie trying to find a god roll imperial decree. Again another match-made 6 person activity which requires 0 communication. When I’m spent I just go to the crucible. But then again the above is my experience and suits my situation. I’m 960 with the artefact buff, with a natural power of 949. No raiding.

Destiny 2: How is the Solo Player Experience

By Shreyansh Katsura


Bungie’s Destiny 2 is one of the most popular live-service games around, but it also offers plenty of content appropriate for solo players.

Even in its fourth year, Destiny 2 continues to be one of the most popular live-service games around. The ongoing Season of the Lost is setting the stage for The Witch Queen expansion. Like every expansion before, The Witch Queen will introduce a ton of stuff, including a new campaign, endgame activities, and more. However, there will also be plenty of unique additions such as a new weapon class and weapon crafting that should entice veterans and newcomers alike.

With The Witch Queen on the horizon, many players may be looking to get back into the grind to prepare for what could be the biggest and most ambitious Destiny 2 expansion yet. While Destiny 2's robust matchmaking system means players seldom indulge in the game's activities alone, Destiny 2 can pan out for solo players with no dedicated fireteam.

Destiny 2 Solo: Campaign, Lost Sectors, and Seasonal Missions

Bungie has continued to overhaul and balance Destiny 2's various in-game activities since 2017. While some of these fundamental changes were received positively, others were not. One of the biggest issues faced by Destiny 2 players is the overwhelming amount of content, lore, and underlying mechanics it does little to explain. The launch of Beyond Light saw the removal of Destiny 2's first three campaigns: Red War, Curse of Osiris, and Warmind. While players can experience the story and events of these removed campaigns tucked away in Destiny's Content Vault by going through the Timeline in the game's Orbit, it leaves a lot to be desired and makes it harder to follow the broader narrative.

While it may be difficult to grasp the ongoing Destiny 2 storyline, it's easy to get into Destiny 2's gameplay loop. Bungie has bumped the base power level to 1,100, which is the recommended power level to start Destiny 2 DLC campaigns, lost sectors, public events, and vanguard strikes. For solo players, this means instant access to the campaign missions of the Forsaken, Shadowkeep, and Beyond Light expansions. These missions are structured similar to the campaign in traditional single-player games, which means solo players can complete them without aid. Similarly, solo players can complete the lost sectors scattered around Destiny 2's seven planets without any additional aid.

Every Destiny 2 seasons offer unique storylines that progress with the completion of different weekly missions. While seasonal missions are readily available to players of any power level, there is a recommended level for every one. Low-level players can complete six-player activities, though they would need to reach the soft cap power level of that season to finish solo missions comfortably. For instance, the soft cap for the ongoing Season of the Lost is 1,270.

However, this doesn't mean that seasonal missions are impossible for players with a power level of 1,260 or less. Proficient players can solo their way out, though it will be more challenging. Tackling champion enemies solo can be a hassle, especially in Season of Lost where the champion mods implementation is cumbersome. However, this shouldn't gatekeep solo players from playing seasonal content in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Solo: Strikes, Crucibles, Gambit, Raids, and Dungeons

In Destiny 2, co-op is mandatory in the various strike, crucible, raid, and gambit activities. Vanguard strikes are three-player PvE content available to fans of all power levels. Destiny 2's matchmaking means solo players can easily partner with random players. Furthermore, high-level coordination isn't necessary for players to finish a vanguard strike mission.

However, Nightfall strike is where things become tricky for solo players. For starters, the recommended power level for Nightfall strike this season is 1,250. All the three champion types; barrier, overload, and unstoppable; appear in Nightfall strike, in addition to countless other enemies that make it overwhelming to finish without proper strategy and coordination. Skilled solo players equipped with rare mods can still finish Nightfall strikes without efficiently coordinating with teammates, though this is not recommended.

Crucible is the PvP aspect of Destiny 2, and offers plenty of different modes to fiddle around with. Playing crucible is one of the quickest ways to increase season rank and gain powerful or pinnacle gear in Destiny 2, so solo players shouldn't sit out. Solo players have more chances of being successful in 6v6 crucible game modes like Control and Momentum Control. Rumble, in which every player fights for themselves, is inherently solo friendly. However, 3v3 crucible game modes like Survival and Elimination are more grounded PvP experiences in Destiny 2, and a team of solo players may not stand a chance if the opposing team is a group of well-coordinated friends.

Gambit is Destiny 2's PvPvE mode, accessible to players of any power level. This hybrid 4v4 mode is advantageous for solo players, especially in the PvE department, as players have to face only one member of the other team at a given time. This gives a team based on solo players a slight advantage of numbers over well-coordinated, higher power players of the other team.

These are all of the activities that solo players can finish without a dedicated fireteam. Dungeons and raids, although available for base-power players, are challenging endgame activities designed for high-level cooperative players. Raid, Destiny 2's highest difficulty level PvE mode, does not feature matchmaking, meaning players have to form their own fireteam before starting. This makes it impossible for solo players to take part in a raid unless they use the guided method to manually find teammates - which is a cumbersome process of its own.

Overall, Destiny 2 offers a lot of content for solo players. Aside from endgame activities like the raid and dungeons, solo players can breeze through almost everything else.

Destiny 2 is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

Destiny 2 Solo Enabler

The official repo for the program Destiny 2 Solo Enabler, or shorthand: D2SE. Further down the page exists an FAQ, which should hopefully answer any questions you might have. However if you are still left with questions, create an Issue, and I'll respond to you!


What is D2SE?

D2SE is a program which creates Firewall rules and blocks out ports used by Destiny 2 (or well, rather Steam itself) for matchmaking. This enables the user of the program to load into an empty strike or an empty forge. Basically, it allows the user to not be matchmade with other players. It works on any matchmade activity, i.e. strikes, patrol zones, story missions, etc...

For people simply curious as to how the program looks (I'm one of those people, wondering about the UI/UX before downloading a program), I've decided to include this image.

Image depicting the UI of the Destiny 2 Solo Enabler program. Program turned off currently.Program turned on currently.

Note: This is the new design. If you're interessted in the old design, download a release from before v2.

How does one use D2SE?

When you have downloaded the program, you start up Destiny 2. Make sure you're in orbit, then you alt-tab out and enable the program. After doing this, you can search for a strike, forge, or whatever. When you want to turn it off, simply click the button in the program once again.

Why did I create D2SE?

It's a program I decided to develop, because I got more and more annoyed with Bungie's decisions to focus on Bounties which made players compete with each other in Strikes. I don't want to fight for kills against teammates just to complete a bounty, I want to just relax and play through a strike or two, and complete my Bounties like that.

While there already are scripts to solve this issue, the problem with them is the lack of UX. For this program I wanted the UI itself to be simple, but still be useful at a glance. The status updates whenever certain firewall rules exist, this provides a better UX than the various PowerShell scripts out there.

Ehh dude, <browser name> blocks the download of the program... is it a virus or what?

It's not a virus, that much I can guarantee. The reason for the download behaviour of the browsers, is that I didn't sign thr program. I don't have a program to sign it, nor do I have "code-signing certificate", which my Google searches told me I needed. After all, I'm just a Comp. Sci. student 3 weeks into my education. Anyhow, you should just be able to click "Keep" on the file (atleast on Google Chrome).

Fam, Windows also gives me a warning when I try to open it... You sure about this virus thing?

Yes, I'm quite sure! The reason for this behaviour is the same as the browser blocking the download of the program. From my expierences with opening the program on a secondary PC, the warning should only happen on the very first start up.

Why does the program require Administrator priviledges?

Firewall handling. That is the reason for the prompt asking for admin priviledges. Windows has made sure a program can't change the firewall without having such rights (which is a good thing). This in turn means the program needs such rights, since that's how it does its thing!

The program does not work! Why?

Make sure you're giving it admin priviledges. Other than that, make sure you have the .NET Framework installed (should be preinstalled on any newer Windows 10 installation, but if you are having issues, try reinstalling the latest version). You also need to make sure you actually have the Windows firewall activated. The program relies on it, therefore it won't function without it.

Does it work with other Firewalls than the Windows one?

No, unfortunately not. It uses namespaces which works with the Windows Firewall, and not thirdparty ones (e.g. Kaspersky). So make sure you're only using the Windows one.

Note: I haven't tested it myself, but one person has reported you can disable the third party Firewall while using the program, and then it should work. So if you run into problems, try disabling your third party Firewall, start the program, and when you close the program again, turn on your third party Firewall.

Does it mean my firewall will be filled with a lot of wasteful rules after using this program a few times?

No! Don't worry. I was contemplating on just letting the firewall rules stay, and simply disabling them. However, I know that I'd find it annoying if I were to find unused firewall rules. So I made sure the programs goes in and deletes whatever rules it creates, when you (the user) decides to disable the program.

I enabled the program, but the game won't load any strikes or anything.

When using this program, it takes longer to find matches to load into. From my testing, it takes roughly 40 seconds longer to find a strike to load into. Which means, roughly after 1 minute the game finds a strike I can load into.

What happens when I disable the program while in a strike or some other activity?

The game will then be able to matchmake other people into your session. Which simply means, people will join you. Sometimes it takes some time (longest I've experienced was 2 minutes), other times it'll be almost instantly (shortest I've experienced was less than 5 seconds after disabling, two people joined my strike).

How was the program developed?

Incredibly enough, Microsofts documentation for firewall handling via C# is... Lacking, if I were to phrase it kindly. But after a lot of Google Searching for information about this subject, I notices a namespace called NetFwTypeLib. This namespace (if I am remembering correctly), came from the NuGet package "Firewallmanager" created by cyberxander90. However, this also didn't have any documentation. But the combined strength of Google searches and randomly typing stuff to see what I could set, allowed me to find the right combination.

Feel free to checkout the Soloplay.cs file, inside there are 3 methods: One returns a bool dependent on if a FW rule already exists; one creates a firewall rule with settings given to it via its parameters; the last one goes through the entire FW rules list, and deletes whatever firewall rule it finds, if it matches the supplied firewall rule name.

What guarantee do you have this won't ban anyone? (source)

Good question! A complete guarantee: None.

However based on emphirical evidence, I can say that I've not experienced any problems. The very core of the program is based on a PowerShell script which has been floating around this subreddit before, and it has been used without problems.

So to answer your question, all I can say is: I've been using this program for the last week, the same has a buddy of mine. The concept of using the firewall to enable soloplay has been used by the community for a long time, and personally I've used that trick in the last 6 months. All without any problems.

Does it work on Consoles as well?

No it does not. It's a program which makes use of an API in order to talk with the Windows firewall. Meaning, if you're not using the Windows firewall, the program will not work. This unfortunately also means it won't work on Linux (well, since it requires .NET Framework, it won't work anyways, but yeah.)

What's up with the Shimoneta picture?

It's an amazing series. Can only recommend it to people. A funny show which held my attention through the entire show!


Finding out what ports to block was not my doing. On the DestinyTheGame subreddit there already exists a PowerShell script which does what my program does. That is from where I got the port range. I would love to be able to just thank the creator of the script, however I can't seem to find out who exactly created it. Many users has posted the same script many times. So let this be a thank you to every single person out there posting the script!

In regards to the creation of the firewall rule, one specific stackoverflow post has my eternal gratitude. This is the combined result of users David Christiansen and Heo Đất Hades.

Massive shoutout to Github user dheif. He came up with the design for the new UI, and also coded the "About" section of the program. So thank you very much!

Ending notes

This project has been fun so far. Having to start from scratch and search up everything on your own, using whatever resources you might find, having to decide what is actually useful and what's isn't. I know I'll be using this program from now on, and I hope whoever might do the same also has a good experience with it!

Once again, if any problems are found (or just typos in this readme), feel free to create an issue on the topic.

Is Destiny 2 Worth Playing Solo?

Season of the Chosen is here, Destiny 2's thirteenth season, and it's clear that the shooter/looter/MMO hybrid isn't going anywhere just yet.

Still, if you're looking to jump in for the first time, or looking to return after a hiatus, you may be wondering how playable the game is if you're looking to go it alone.

Here's what you should know.

Is Destiny 2 Worth Playing Solo?

While Destiny 2 does offer a single-player campaign, almost everything in the game has either a requirement for more players or a built-in matchmaking system.

Aside from top-level content like raids, players can have plenty of fun playing Strikes, Gambit Matches and Crucible matches with other players and never feel like they're missing out.

For strictly solo content, players can play through Lost Sectors and the aforementioned campaign missions, but at some point, you'll undoubtedly want to play something a little more exciting.

Our advice would be to download the game and play through the opening tutorial first of all.

Not only does it lay out the game's core mechanics, weapon types and progression systems, but it's played solo before letting you go and do what you'd like.

Have fun, Guardian!
