How to Open the Gates in Destiny 2’s Leviathan Raid
Before you can even start the challenges of the Leviathan Raid in Destiny 2, you must first gain access to the castle. This is done by obtaining keys from enemies called Standard Bearers. Here’s how to take care of them.
First things first, when you arrive in the raid and see all those Cabal just standing there, ignore them. They won’t attack you if you don’t attack first. Just mosey on by and climb up to the entrance and make your way to a large room. Look around for a triangle on the ground that has a shimmering key above it. This is the door you need to open, now it’s time to split up.
Keep four players at the spot with the three key slots. Two of you, preferably your strongest, head out and seek keys. Now you’ll see a floating symbol for the key, and that tells you which key you need. Look for that same symbol elsewhere in the room. Hang around it, killing adds, and eventually a Standard Bearer will appear and you must kill it. Doing so will make the key on the symbol materialize and one of the members of the pair can carry it back to where the rest of the team is waiting. You must do this three times for three different symbols.
While fighting for the keys, though, Standard Liberators will start to spawn. The four players staying by the symbol need to make sure that they kill that enemy and any Counsilors (Psions within these white bubbles that will spawn nearby). If they aren’t killed, they will take one of the keys and you’ll have to go grab it again.
As long as you can get three keys while also not losing any, you will open the gate and be able to proceed through Destiny 2’s Leviathan Raid.
Make sure that you get your system for who does what down. You actually need to do this before each and every section of the raid, as the gates are located in a hub area of sorts. It never becomes more challenging, so once you get it, you’ll pretty much have it down. Good luck, guardians.
