Destiny 2 Seasonal Story Has Glaring Flaw If You Skip a Week or More of Playing

Because much of the Destiny 2 seasonal content is incremental, the optimal way of experiencing it is as the live service is updated, but players have noticed that the seasonal story has a glaring flaw if they skip a week or more of playing. Every Destiny 2 season has its unique content offerings and weapons are nerfed and buffed accordingly, but the seasonal stories can be strange if players put the game down for a bit.

Lightfall launched in February, and like with the Destiny 2 expansion DLC before it, it introduced many changes to the Bungie FPS, including a fresh storyline. Within the overall Destiny 2 Lightfall arc, players can expect a few seasons with their own offerings and a battle pass, with the current one being called the Season of Defiance. Each week of Destiny 2‘s Season of Defiance, a new part of the ongoing Destiny 2 story is dropped, but if players don’t check it out right away, things get a little strange.


Reddit user Reicomatricks has garnered 3,000 upvotes on a post in which they highlight some absurdities with the Destiny 2 Season of Defiance storyline so far. According to Reicomatricks, doing this Destiny 2 content all at once results in some strange running around, first meeting with Devrim Kay at The Farm, then Mara Sov at The Helm, even though she’s standing near Kay at The Farm. The quests then send players to The Farm to be debriefed by Amanda Holliday before having to go to The Helm to have a different conversation with the same NPC.

Because Bungie may expect players to progress through the Season of Defiance story as the content is added, the fans that are late to the party end up running around a lot less naturally than they could have otherwise. While these players move from one location to another to catch up on the storyline, others are experimenting with the new Destiny 2 Strand subclass, delving into the adjusted Crucible PvP, or challenging themselves with the Lightfall raid.

Given that there are still several weeks left in the Destiny 2 Season of Defiance storyline, players that have yet to experience the content towards the end of it may have even more wandering to do to be debriefed on the ongoing narrative. As Destiny 2‘s Farm and The Helm are both prominent locations in the Season of Defiance’s story so far, it’s possible that players will return to these locations again in future weekly drops.

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