Bungie have clarified the content that will be removed from Destiny 2 this November when the game undergoes a major shake up to reduce complexity and get rid of some of the more tired content. On November 10th, Io, Titan, Mars, Mercury, and Leviathan will all enter the Destiny Content Vault, and two new areas, the Cosmodrome and Europa, will be added.
Now you might be thinking that as the planets no longer exist all the content on them will be removed from the game, and you’d be right. Sort of. Strikes, Raids, and story content from planets that have been removed will be binned, so the game will look like this.

Bungie have also posted a short Q&A answering some questions which you can read below.
Q. What goes away when a destination is Vaulted?
A. When a destination enters the DCV, its PvE content will no longer be available. Explicitly, this includes their unique:
- Story missions and cinematics
- Strikes (detailed above)
- Raids (detailed above)
- Dungeons (detailed above)
- Secret missions
- Vendors and associated bounties
- Destination-specific patrols
- Collectables & scannables
- Destination-specific activities (Ex: Mercury’s Forge, Mars’ Escalation Protocol)
- Freely roaming the destinations themselves, exploring Lost Sectors, etc.
Q. What will new Guardians experience if the Year 1 campaigns are going away?
A. With some of the core Year 1 destinations entering the Vault, it’s true that the free-for-all-players Red War, Curse of Osiris, and Warmind campaigns will no longer be playable.
We are building a new, expanded Guardian origin story on the Cosmodrome that will launch alongside Year 4 and will be available to all Guardians to play. It is designed to introduce you to the world and mechanics of Destiny and prepare you to play the action MMO game we all enjoy. The Forsaken and Shadowkeep story campaigns will still be playable in Year 4 for owners of those expansions.
Q. What’s happening to The Whisper and Zero Hour secret missions and their Exotic rewards?
A. The Whisper is entering the Vault alongside Io, and so too is Zero Hour (given the old Tower was part of the Red War campaign and which is also entering the Vault). Their Exotic weapon rewards will not be acquirable until we find a new way to reintroduce them, so if you’re keen to get them, make sure you do that now!
Q. With the Forsaken campaign, Tangled Shore, and Dreaming City sticking around after Beyond Light’s launch, does that mean other Year 2 Seasonal content will remain playable in Year 4 too?
A. No. The Year 2 Seasonal content – including Forges, Reckoning, and Menagerie – will be entering the DCV on November 10. Be sure to experience that content and mark the final items off your collections and checklists before they are Vaulted. Here’s a cheat sheet of what to complete:
- Ada-1, Black Armory, and Season of the Forge quests.
- Gambit Prime, Reckoning, and Season of the Drifter quests.
- Benedict-66, Werner 99-40, Menagerie, and Season of Opulence quests.
- Pinnacle and pursuit weapon quests.
- Note: These weapons will receive an alternate acquisition method. More details to come later this Season.
