Destiny 2 Season of Plunder Features REVEALED: Pirate Crews, New Activities & more

Destiny 2 Season of Plunder is finally set to go live, and many of its new features were revealed in the latest developer Showcase.

This new pirate-themed season, like other seasons before it, brings tons of new features and content for players to enjoy. Players will be able to travel to the stars to plunder and dig up buried treasure, invade enemy spaceships, learn more about some of their favorite characters, and much more.

Destiny 2 Season of Plunder Features

Goodbye Season of the Haunted and hello Season of Plunder as Guardians trade their Nightmarish woes in exchange for some pirate action.

Eramis has broken free from her icy prison and with her newly rounded-up crew of fallen pirates and rogue cabal, she is hunting mysterious treasures. In response to this, Guardians are tasked with collecting these relics but in order to do that they have to create their own crew of shady dealers and backroom brokers.

With the help of The Drifter, Mythrax, Spider, and Eito, players will get on their very own ship and set off for the stars, forming their own pirate crew and filling it with different recruited crew members across the season. That's not all as with their newfound crew, players will be able to participate in several brand-new activities.

Ketch Crash

This new 6-player offensive has players become their own ammunition, launching themselves from a cannon to an enemy ship.


Players will guide a massive drill that’s looking for buried pirate treasure and will have to fend off enemy pirates.

Pirate Hideouts

Throughout their travels, players will be able to find maps that they can piece together. They will be able to use the finished map to find pirate hoards and find some of the dark relics Eramis is looking for.

King's Fall Raid Returns

As opposed to Season of Haunted which introduced the new Duality dungeon, Season of Plunder will look to reintroduce an old one.

Keeping with the pirate-theming, King's Fall will return as the season's raid and will be free for all players. This raid, which was initially released in 2015, has players fight off Oryx on his throne ships. Like other raids, King's Fall will provide players with unique weapons and armor.
