We’ve known for a while that, in order to keep Destiny 2 running smoothly when the Beyond Light expansion drops, Bungie will be closing the doors on some of the game’s earliest content. This includes the base game’s story campaign, along with a laundry list of Strikes, multiplayer maps, and more. The game is just too big at this point, and Bungie is trying to look forward. Bungie previously made us aware of much of the content being sealed away and we've covered it a few times, but now the full list has been revealed via the official website.
Destiny 2 Beyond Light Convent Vault List
As we knew before, the biggest chunk of vaulting sees Bungie stuffing four whole planets into its giant space bag. The planets leaving are Io, Titan, Mars, and Mercury. Naturally, this means every activity that took place on those planets is going to be out of the picture. This is going to take down a list of PvE strikes, which comprise the following:
- The Pyramidion
- The Festering Core
- Savathun’s Song
- Strange Terrain
- Will of the Thousands
- Tree of Probabilities
- A Garden World
The PvP is also seeing a significant chunk of content being removed, although as a consolation we’re actually seeing the return of Control and Scorched playlists. So it does seem like content coming out of the vault for certain occasions isn’t outside the realm of possibility. Anyway, here is the list of PvP maps and modes being lost to time, space, and server real estate:
- The Citadel
- Emperor’s Respite
- Firebase Echo
- Gambler’s Ruin
- Legion’s Gulch
- Cathedral of Scars
- Kell’s Grave
As you’d probably expect as a Destiny expert, there’s also a list of Raids going off to the big hard drive in the sky. Leviathan is perhaps the biggest tragedy, symbologing all the game’s initial endgame content going away. All the Dungeons are sticking around, though! The full list of vaulting Raids is as follows:
- Eater of Worlds
- Spire of Stars
- Scourge of the Past
- Crown of Sorrows
Beyond the big stuff, other bits of content are either being tucked away for a later date, or structurally altered to fit the vaulting. Expect to see several Exotic weapon quests go away, to be replaced with a kiosk that will still grant access to them. Some Catalysts are also going away, although Bungie has directly stated they will cycle back in later on. And finally, since all that story content from the base Destiny 2 is blasting off, Bungie is also releasing a new introductory element for new players, which will be part of the free entry level.

So that’s all we’re looking at losing on November 10, 2020. Beyond Light is going to be a huge expansion, but with it will come a drastic alteration of the total Destiny 2 package. Are you a newer Destiny 2 player trying to rush through everything before it’s gone, or are you more looking forward to getting to the next phase of the game overall?
