If you’re a new player coming to Destiny 2: New Light, there’s a lot of content you can access from the previous years of development. The campaign will no longer immediately begin, and you won’t have to play through it to get adequate Power Level to compete in Gambits, Year 1 Raids, Strikers, or whatever else you want to do. Everyone starts at 750 Power Level, but you can still go back and replay those campaigns you missed.
There are five campaigns total available in Destiny 2 right now. Three are totally free and available for everyone (Red War, Curse of Osiris, and Warmind) while the final two are locked behind DLC purchases. Whether you have access or not, I’ll explain how to start all the campaigns with the guide below. Even veterans might not know how to access the standard campaign after returning. It’s sort of hidden!
