Is Destiny 2 Worth Playing Solo?

Season of the Chosen is here, Destiny 2's thirteenth season, and it's clear that the shooter/looter/MMO hybrid isn't going anywhere just yet.

Still, if you're looking to jump in for the first time, or looking to return after a hiatus, you may be wondering how playable the game is if you're looking to go it alone.

Here's what you should know.

Is Destiny 2 Worth Playing Solo?

While Destiny 2 does offer a single-player campaign, almost everything in the game has either a requirement for more players or a built-in matchmaking system.

Aside from top-level content like raids, players can have plenty of fun playing Strikes, Gambit Matches and Crucible matches with other players and never feel like they're missing out.

For strictly solo content, players can play through Lost Sectors and the aforementioned campaign missions, but at some point, you'll undoubtedly want to play something a little more exciting.

Our advice would be to download the game and play through the opening tutorial first of all.

Not only does it lay out the game's core mechanics, weapon types and progression systems, but it's played solo before letting you go and do what you'd like.

Have fun, Guardian!
