Destiny 2 Lightfall mission list – all missions in the campaign story


If you’re after a Destiny 2 Lightfall mission list, then you’re in the right place. Knowing the length of a campaign helps you gauge your progress through its story, and in this guide we’ll list every single story mission in the Lightfall expansion to show you that. Better yet – we’ve got a few tips for tricky missions such as Headlong.

The expansion to the free PC game starts with a bang, and never really lets up. The Destiny 2 legendary campaign adds a lot of spice to the proceedings, requiring teamwork if you’re in a fire team, and extreme caution if you are not. But how many missions are there in the Destiny 2 Lightfall story? Here is the complete mission list for Destiny 2 Lightfall.

How many Destiny 2 Lightfall missions are there?

There are eight full-length missions for you to conquer before you complete the Destiny 2: Lightfall campaign. Each of them has a recommended power level to give you some idea of the challenge you’ll face, and if you’re attempting it on Legendary difficulty, it’ll be close to the cap that’s available to you at the time. Read on to find the full list.

Destiny 2 Lightfall mission list

The Destiny 2 Lightfall missions are:

  • First Contact
  • Under Siege
  • Downfall
  • Breakneck
  • On The Verge
  • No Time Left
  • Headlong
  • Desperate Measures

If you’re taking on the story on regular difficulty, you shouldn’t have much of an issue blasting through the swathes of enemies, but with the campaign pushing the power level to near the cap, you’ll want to ensure you’re using the best Destiny 2 builds to get through the challenge.

Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign tips

The Lightfall campaign can be tricky – especially if you’re attempting it on Legendary – but it’s not just combat that can pose a challenge. Many players have been struggling with one of the earlier missions, so we’ve got a full Downfall mission walkthrough to help you out, as well as a guide to the Headlong mission puzzle. If you’ve made it all the way to the end of Desperate Measures, we can also tell you how to beat the Calus boss fight.

If you manage to complete the Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign on legendary difficulty, it will put you at 1770 power level. This is a great baseline if you’re planning on acquiring powerful gear from legendary lost sectors and you’ll be in a solid position to take on the Lightfall raid.

As well as these Destiny 2 Lightfall missions, there will also be other, smaller, activities you can undertake in the city of Neomuna, all of which will be essential if you want to collect Strand Meditations so you can upgrade your Strand abilities. The Lightfall exotics are excellent additions to your arsenal, and with the new loadout system, you’ll be able to give each of them the equal love that they deserve.
