Unlocking the Hidden Treasures: A Guide to Navigating Destiny 2's Expansion OPEN Access

Outside the gaming world, few things create more buzz than the lead-up to the launch of a new game, so you can imagine the sort of excitement rippling through Bungie about the release of the final climactic DLC of Destiny 2’s season: The Final Shape. You can probably also imagine the carrots that it’s using to get players, both Guardian veterans and newcomers curious from the new ads, prepped for the changes coming with the events of The Final Shape and season 18. So much so that, to drum up interest in the company’s fourth and final instalment of Destiny 2’s current season, Bungie opened the gates to nearly all of its major DLC in what’s called ‘Expansion Open Access’. In this Expansion Open Access opening, anyone and everyone can play nearly all of Destiny 2’s past expansions for free, all the way up until the release of the Last Wish season 17 cinematic campaign. What does that mean for you and the value it provides for players? Here’s what you need to know to make the most out of this temporary open affair.

What Does Expansion OPEN Access Offer?

Starting now and ending on 3 June, esteemed Destiny 2 players are given free passage through the shadows of Destiny 2’s Moon in Shadowkeep, the iciness of the icy wilderness of Europa in Beyond Light, and the enigma of Savathûn’s Throne World in The Witch Queen. This is accessible on all 2019-2022 content. It includes all of the thrilling seasons from Year 6. All earned gear will be kept for players after access is gone.

Unlocking Exotic Treasures

One of the main advantages of Expansion Open Access is the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive at The Tower, which allows you to purchase Exotic weapons that used to be seasonal earn quests or rewards track objectives which were sunsetted. All Exotic weapons cost 1 Exotic Cipher, 1 Ascendant Shard and 100,000 Glimmer. Glimmer and Ascendant Shards are very easy to acquire, but Exotic Ciphers require a bit more work; you can get them by completing the weekly quest ‘Xenology’, or by purchasing them as a weekly free Rank 55 pass reward.

The Top Five Exotics to Acquire

  • Witherhoard
  • Leviathan's Breath
  • Ager's Scepter
  • Grand Overture
  • Ticuu's Divination

Preparing for The Final Shape

Before we reach The Final Shape, use Expansion Open Access to collect elite Exotics while also getting to know Destiny 2’s multilayered lore and plots. Complete the campaigns, finish the raids, and hone your gameplay across the diverse matchmade activities, as preparation for the trials that will follow.
