Destiny 2 moon

Destiny 2 moon DEFAULT

When the original Destinybeta began, players woke up on a highway in old Russia near a place called the Cosmodrome. A few missions into the beta, players heard the utterance of Destiny’s most famous meme: “That Wizard came from the Moon.” The line became such a joke in the beta that Bungie removed it, only to add it back a few months later.

Fans cringed at the famous line and celebrated the meme it became. Bungie even made a shirt. But the line hints that there’s more to the Moon than meets the eye. Bungie followed through with that promise in Destiny’s sixth mission, “The Dark Beyond,” where dozens of Hive Thrall spew out of a single doorway on the planet’s surface (“We’ve awoken the Hive!”). Destiny players have obsessed over the Moon ever since.

Players have been asking Bungie to bring back the Moon for years. Numerous Reddit posts throughout 2018 and earlier this year have wondered if Guardians will ever return to the location. It seems they will. In Shadowkeep, this fall’s expansion for Destiny 2, Bungie will return players to the Ocean of Storms area of the Moon. It’s sparked another Destiny meme, Moon’s haunted (a reimagining of another famous Twitter meme), and even took over a recent CNN Twitter comment section.

Why do players love the Moon?


If you’ve only played through the Destiny campaign, or seen images of the Moon, you may be a bit confused. It’s a big ball of dust with some industrial buildings. As you ride around the Moon in Destiny, the most interesting thing you’ll see above the surface is a giant bottomless pit called the Hellmouth.

It’s a scary location in the original Destiny, with poorly lit corridors. Compared to the bright, post-apocalyptic landscape of the Cosmodrome, the Hellmouth was a dramatic shift in tone for Destiny.

The Moon is also home to some of Destiny’s more memorable missions. In “The Sword of Crota” mission, players wield a giant sword against Hive Knights. Throughout the original Destiny, players disrupt rituals on the Moon, and kill the son of a god. Killing Crota incites a war that plays out in The Taken King expansion. The Moon is also the location where the first secret Exotic mission started, in which players can earn Black Spindle.

From a lore perspective, the Moon always manages to drag players back. The Hive are the most important enemy race in Destiny right now, as they have a direct connection with the Darkness. The Moon is their base of operations. The Moon’s passageways wind deep, but there are plenty of doors left unopened. Something is down there in the Hellmouth, and it’s closer to the Guardian’s home than any distant planet. And that’s what Shadowkeep is playing with.

What’s new on the Moon in Shadowkeep?


According the Bungie, the Ocean of Storms and Hellmouth coming in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep are twice the size of the original Destiny’s Moon. Players will explore deeper than they could in the first game. Shadowkeep will also see the return of Eris Morn, a fan-favorite Destiny character closely tied to the Hive.

The Out of the Shadows ViDoc says that Eris woke something up on the Moon. Players aren’t sure what that force is yet, but it’s managed to recreate some of Guardians’ most powerful enemies from both the original Destiny and Destiny 2. Enemies like Crota are back, and players will need to take their phantasms down in the upcoming expansion.

The most mysterious aspect of the Moon is the new red citadel seen in the key art for the expansion. This location will likely be a big part of the Moon’s new surface area. Some of the Hive enemies Bungie has shown appear to mirror the same scarlet coloring as the fortress. Its contents — and the leader of the faction that built it — is unknown.

Returning to the Moon in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is a nostalgia flex from Bungie. Bringing in old enemies that fans haven’t faced in years adds to that old-school Destiny narrative.

But Bungie is intent on twisting what players know. Though the developer is preserving some original Destiny locations in Shadowkeep, not everything will be the same. We don’t know what role the Moon or the old enemies play in the new expansion. But for a nostalgia pull, Bungie couldn’t have picked a more meaningful location for its fans.

An ancient evil stirs beneath the shattered surface of our Moon.
"We once looked to the Moon and saw hope. Now we see only the power of the Darkness."
— Grimoire description.[1]

The Moon (also known as Luna) is Earth's only natural satellite. Like most of the celestial bodies in the Sol System, the Moon is littered with the ruins of humanity'sGolden Age. [2]


"The fight to take back all that has been lost—begins here."
— Destiny Official Facebook[3]

The surface of the Moon appears to be shattered with immense fissures in the crust spewing a sickly yellow miasma, hinting at the utter destruction going on deep beneath the lunar surface.[4]The Hive have been buried within the moon for centuries, growing stronger within its lifeless core where they have carved their kingdom.[5] Since the end of the Battle of Twilight Gap, a consequent Fallen presence has been encountered there in the form of the House of Exile.[6] And at some point there were Cabal present on the moon. [7]


"We gave up the Moon to keep the Hive away from Earth. We hoped that would be enough for them."
— Ghost[8]

During the Golden Age, the Moon served as an outpost for supporting humanity's colonies across the system. The remains of an Accelerator and Moonbase can be found, used to deliver supplies to the colonies. The moon once housed a thriving human colony of interconnected bases, but now only broken domes and scattered space suits half-buried in the lunar soil mark humanity's faded dominance.

After the Collapse, the Moon was occupied by the Hive lead by Crota, Son of Oryx seeking the Traveler and its Light-bearers. There they hollowed out its mantle and fortified into their lair known as the Hellmouth.

Rezyl Azzir made first contact with the Hive on the Moon before returning to warn the City of the threat they pose. After the Battle of Burning Lake, Guardians attempted to take back the Moon in a disastrous battle that resulted in thousands of Guardians slain by Crota. Exploration efforts were repulsed, reporting increased enemy activity, and even strange tectonic phenomenon.[9] and the moon is currently classified as a Forbidden Zone,[10] accessible only to the most experienced Guardians. The forces of the Hive have now fully infested Earth's satellite, and pieces of the surface have cracked and broken off into space. An iconic view of the looming Earth hangs in the skybox, but Guardians would be wise to keep their eyes closer to the ground. A massive fortress known as the Hellmouth gapes open where the Hive have begun their dig, and sprawling networks of caves and fortified strongpoints wait inside. On the surface of the Moon, forgotten treasure hide in the dust.[11]

The recent discovery of the Hive's deployment of Hive seeders on Earth, launched from the Moon, has forced the Vanguard to rescind their decision to principally avoid Lunar territory. Fearing further incursion, the Vanguard have begun sanctioning strikes against key Hive personnel and assets.

The Dark Below

Following the discovery of the Black Garden, the hive god Crota, Son of Oryx began to reawaken. This was preceded by the reappearance of Eris Morn an agent of The Hidden and member of the First Crota Fireteam originally assumed to be deceased. Following the instructions of Eris, the guardians were able to destroy the crystal containing the Soul of Crota and prevent his reemergence in the material plane. This instigated the opportunity to directly enter the Hellmouth and begin Crota's End.

The Taken War

When Oryx and the Taken arrived in the system new activity began in the Hellmouth. The Guardian traveled into the Hellmouth once again to claim a piece of the crystal that held the Soul of Crota, only to find it an empty shell. Hoping to make use of the dead god's essence, the guardian infiltrated the death ceremony of Crota using cloaking technology stolen from Rasputin, narrowly escaping the throne world thanks to the powers of Eris Morn.

Red War and beyond

During the Red Legion occupation of the city and Ghaul's capture of the Traveler, he spread his forces to all places in the system, the guardians on Luna lost their light. According to Vanguard reports "Hive populations remain low and grow ever lower thanks to the efforts of a small contingent of veteran guardians who have made their homes on Luna". During a patrol, a Guardian by the name of Fenchurch Everis found an unknown object lodged in the chest of a Thrall on Luna that caused hallucinations when picked up, described as sharp, dark and slippery. The arrival of the Drifter and Gambit has caused a reduced Guardian presence on the frontiers, according to the Praxic Warlock Aunor Mahal; "in the absence of light, even the Hellmouth on the moon is stirring".

Nineteen months after the Red War, Hive originating from the Hellmouth entered the Ascendant realm and infiltrated the Leviathan, which had been exposed to the realm by Gahlran, the Sorrow-Bearer. The significance of this is unclear.


The Guardians ultimately return to Luna following the discovery of a new crimson-hued Hive fortress near the Hellmouth, the Scarlet Keep. Worse, Eris Morn returns bearing a discovery: a massive black pyramid structure beneath the Keep, tied directly to the Darkness itself. The Hive manage to harness a fraction of the Pyramids power, creating Nightmare phantoms that take on the forms of the Guardians greatest foes. The Guardians now work with Eris to combat the Hive, their Nightmare creations and unlock the secrets of the Pyramid. They continued to battle the Nightmares, along with the Hive, Fallen, Vex, Cabal, and Scorn that are present with them.

The Guardians' situation on the Moon soon grew complicated when the relic they acquired from the Pyramid began sending a signal to the Black Garden. A fireteam of Guardians then enter the Black Garden via a newly-discovered portal on the moon, destroying Consecrated Mind, Sol Inherent and Sanctified Mind, Sol Inherent. At the end of their journey, the fireteam discovers a statue identical to the one found aboard the Pyramid.

However, the Vex would not take this incursion into the Black Garden lightly. The destruction of the Sol Inherent minds prompt the Sol Divisive to resurrect the Undying Mind. In turn, the Undying Mind copied itself across thousands of timelines after learning from its precious encounters; causing the Vex to invade the Moon en masse in an effort to bar entry into the Black Garden.

After weeks of holding the Sol Divisive back, the Guardians follow Ikora's plan to use a beacon to pull one of the thousand copies of the Undying Mind from the timeways, giving them an opportunity to destroy the Axis Mind. The Guardian push forward against the latest Vex Offensive, breaching into the Black Garden once again and planting the beacon. As planned, the beacon draws a copy of the Undying Mind and after a perilous struggle, the Guardians succeed in destroying the Undying Mind. However, as thousands of copies of the Mind existed, the Guardians were forced to continually destroy the copies one-by-one using the same process. Eventually, every last copy of the Mind was destroyed. However, the absence of the Undying Mind would allow the Red Legion to fracture time on Mercury, and across the solar system.

The Hunt for the Wrathborn

A little under a year after the Vex were driven back, Savathûn herself was ex-communicated, prompting her sister, Xivu Arath, to attempt to take over the Hive, including the Hidden Swarm. The Hive God of War sent her emissary to the Moon to construct Cryptoliths in the Hall of Wisdom and Shrine of Oryx, as well as commune with the remaining daughters of Crota to lure the Hidden Swarm under Xivu's command. However, Osiris interrupted the meeting, killing much of the Swarm's noble brood. However, he was unable to beat the Celebrant, resulting in Sagira's death and the Warlock to pursue the Celebrant in a blind rage. Eventually, the Guardian themselves returned to the moon, drove the High Celebrant back to Ascendant Realm, and retrieve Osiris with the help of the resurrected Uldren Sov.

Even after the Hunt had concluded, the Hidden Swarm still operated on the Moon, under the leadership of Crota's sole remaining daughter.



  • The Moon is the smallest explorable area in Destiny.[12] That being said, its size is deceptively larger than the map would suggest, as the Hellmouth contains a large number of underground chambers.
  • Before the release of Rise of Iron, the Moon was the only location where Taken didn't spawn in Patrol zones; the Plaguelands have no Taken.
  • The Moon is the first location in Destiny 2 to feature locations from the original Destiny in its public area, and second to feature original locations overall, the first being the Cosmodrome.
  • Though the Moon has no breathable atmosphere for human-like lifeforms, in Shadowkeep, Eris Morn and Ikora Rey were both seen on the Moon with no air-providing equipment or suits. It's possible that like most of the other celestial bodies in the Sol System, the Traveler terraformed the Moon to a certain degree.
    • The Moon is also depicted as having Earth-like gravity. This was attributed to the Traveler by scientists during the Golden Age.[13]
  • Cabal corpses can be found on the Moon in The Cauldron, indicating an assault sometime during or immediately after The Collapse.[14]

An ancient evil stirs beneath the shattered surface of our moon.

― In-game description

The Moon is the celestial body that orbits Earth.[1]


Like many other planets and moons during Destiny, the ruins of humanity's Golden Age as well as alien structures inhabited by enemy species can be found on the surface.[1] The Moon is classified by The City as a "Forbidden Zone," as early exploration attempts had proven too dangerous.[2]

Early after the collapse of the Golden Age, the Hive invaded and took hold of great portions of the Moon. After the establishment of The City and the Vanguard, humanity made a disastrous attempt to retake their former colony. The Hive, led by Crota, inflicted tremendous losses on the Guardians present, resulting in the Vanguard's abandonment of the offensive. Any expedition to the Moon was no longer sanctioned by the Vanguard, and for centuries the Hive were left to their own devices, tunneling deep beneath the lunar surface and constructing an enormous network of catacombs.

The Hive's deployment of seeders on Earth, launched from the Moon, has forced the Vanguard to rescind their decision to principally avoid Lunar territory. Fearing further incursion, the Vanguard have begun sanctioning strikes against key Hive personnel and assets.



  • The Moon's overall design is intended to cause players to feel a sense of mystery, asking themselves questions like, "Why is an alien race here?" or, "What happened to the colony and its settlers?"[3]Bungie Lead Environment Artist Sam Jones described the early difficulties in creating the Moon environment because of the Moon's relative lack of color, depth, and terrain features as opposed to larger planets such as Mars.[3]

Destiny 2 The Moon Lost Sectors

Known for its Nightmare and Pyramid factions, the Moon is one of the oldest satellites of earth and is also contested between the Fallen, Hive, Taken, and Vex factions.

The Moon, also known as Luna was initially normal on its own until it was altered to become a satellite but to this day it is now a shadow of its former self, being mostly ruins and a grounds for memories.

There are currently four lost sectors on The Moon, these include K1 Logistics, K1 Crew Quarters, K1 Communion, and K1 Revelation.

Unlike on other planets, the enemies you face at the end of the lost sectors are mainly Nightmares, being that are introduced in the Shadowkeep DLC.

Also know about the locations & map of the below lost sectors:

The Moon Lost Sector MapThe Moon Lost Sector Map

The Moon Lost Sector Locations

  • K1 Logistics – Archer’s Line
  • K1 Crew Quarters – Hellmouth
  • K1 Communion – Anchor of Light
  • K1 Revelation – Sorrow’s Harbor

K1 Logistics (Nightmare of Kelnix Reborn Location)K1 Logistics (Nightmare of Kelnix Reborn Location)

  • Boss: Nightmare of Kelnix Reborn
  • Elites: Nightmare Dreg, Nightmare Shank
  • Faction: Fallen
  • Area: Archer’s Line

The entrance to the K1 Logistics lost sector can be located within an abandoned space structure found around Archer’s Line.

As you fight your way past various Fallen enemies, you will wind up inside an open area where a large nightmare Servitor known as Nightmare of Kelnix Reborn will be waiting.

Before the fight starts with the boss in this lost sector, you will need to clear out most of the enemies in the area and once you destroy a Shank that appears near it, the boss becomes vulnerable.

The final area is a round arena and provides you with a lot of cover from Nightmare of Kelnix Reborn which will also help in defeating the Fallen forces that fight alongside it.

K1 Crew Quarters (Nightmare of Reyiks Actuator Location)K1 Crew Quarters (Nightmare of Reyiks Actuator Location)

  • Boss: Nightmare of Reyiks, Actuator
  • Elites: Unyielding Servitor, Nightmare Dreg
  • Faction: Fallen
  • Area:  Hellmouth

You can easily locate the Crew Quarters lost sectors in Hellmouth as it is a barracks-like structure built up further from other structures in the area.

Once inside, you will encounter only a few enemies but there will be an Exploder Shank near the start that appears behind you (listen for its beeping) that will detonate when it reaches you.

After fighting through the Fallen enemies you will encounter some gaps that need to be jumped across, so make sure to be careful when crossing.

The boss of this lost sector, Nightmare of Reyiks, Actuator is not difficult to defeat and is more like an oversized Shank with additional features.

K1 Communion (Nightmare Of Rizaahn The Lost Location)K1 Communion (Nightmare Of Rizaahn The Lost Location)

  • Boss: Nightmare Of Rizaahn, The Lost
  • Elites: Unyielding Servitor, Nightmare Wretch, Nightmare Dreg
  • Faction: Fallen
  • Area:  Anchor Of Light

K1 Communion is a large facility that extends underground and can be located within Anchor Of Life at the very right near the passage going to Hellmouth.

You will progress through a medium-sized room, fighting through Fallen enemies until your reach around a circular room after a few doorways.

In the end, you will need to clear enemies until Nightmare of Rizaahn, The Lost appears, which you will notice causes the room to turn red.

After defeating Rizaahn, The Lost, enemies will continue to spawn and the room will return to normal after clearing them but you can already loot Rizaahn’s chest and leave after defeating him.

K1 Revelation (Nightmare of Arguth the Tormented Location)K1 Revalation (Nightmare of Arguth the Tormented Location)

  • Boss: Nightmare of Arguth, the Tormented
  • Elites: Nightmare Acolyte, Tormented Servant Nightmare
  • Faction: Hive
  • Area:  Sorrow’s Harbor

The K1 Revelation lost sector is an underground facility located within a cave that can be found near the lower center of Sorrow’s Harbor.

As you travel through the cave, you will stumble upon the facility which is crawling with hive enemies and you will eventually come across a large storage site.

Nightmare of Arguth, The Tormented will be idle and invulnerable to damage and you will notice that there are floating shards with white shields.

To start the fight with Nightmare of Aarguth The Tormented, you will need to first defeat the Tormented Servant Nightmares that spawn and destroy their nearby shards.


  • Although there are many factions present on The Moon, the lost sectors are mostly controlled by the Fallen and Hive.
  • Some of the lost sectors may be hard to get to since there are limited passages and it would be best to fast travel to points closest to them.
  • Exploder Shanks can be a real pain (listen for their beeping), especially in K1 Communion as they can come out of nowhere and blow you up when you least expect them to.
  • The entrance to K1 Revelation is through a cave, while the others can be found deep inside other structures on The Moon.


The Moon has lost sectors that are quite easy to work your way through but it does take some time getting to them and finding the entrance.

Unlike in other destinations, the lost sectors on the moon barely have any symbols marking their location but can still be found with ease.

Since there are several Fallen enemies in the lost sectors on The Moon, it makes a good place to farm Fallen Kills.

Alex immediately ran to the door and loudly asked Olga Nikolaevna, are you all right. Yes, I stepped on the soap and fell, Olga said with difficulty in her voice. Alex, stood for a while and did not know what to say. I can help you with something - he asked.

The falmerka. When the orgasm subsided, the orc took off the falmerku from his penis, turned to face him and dug his fleshy lips into her small, toothy. Mouth, not paying attention to the ugliness of the face. Fluttering weakly, the falmerka responded with a kiss.

Suddenly sparks ran through the skin of the mutated elf, and the orc, feeling goosebumps running down his arms, pulled away.
