Destiny 2’s end-of-season grand finale and Witch Queen expansion set-up quest run into a host of issues. Groups of players are reporting progress-blocking bugs while a few others who do so near the end cannot watch the post-mission cutscene as it can be skipped by anyone in your fireteam.
Bungie is currently investigating the bugs, though the developer has some guidance to help those affected in the meantime. Players can block level progress by moving too quickly across the bridge encounter, so you’ll want to double down and slow down if you get stuck. The option to join a session in progress has also been removed and the power level has been lowered to 1170 from 1270.
The developer also told players not to skip the final cutscene, though we’re not sure. enough how effective it is. Our high boss, Rich, attempted the mission this morning, despite being denied the chance to see his tutor in the flashy big cutscene. If the same thing happens to you, your best bet might be to catch it on YouTube right now.
The post-mission cutscene is meant to tie the current season’s narrative together and set us up for The Witch Queen. Although you can watch it online, however, it is not enough the same without your tutor front and center.
As we continue to investigate, please note:
❖ Progress can be blocked if you move too quickly when encountering the bridge. Double return if blocked.
❖ Don’t skip the final cutscene
❖ We are disabling the option to join this activity in progress via Matchmaking

Things look exciting beyond that, as Bungie has claimed that Destiny 2’s 2022 roadmap is bigger than ever. In the new vidoc for Destiny 2’s upcoming Witch Queen expansion, Deputy Game Director Robbie Stevens states that there’s more “Destiny coming this year than any year before.”
The Destiny 2 Witch Queen release date is next week, so you don’t have long to wait.
