Our Destiny 2: Infinite Forest guide contains everything you need to know about the Infinite Forest introduced with the Curse of Osiris expansion..

The Infinite Forest is a location that’s accessible through a pulsating Vex portal in the Fields of Glass on Mercury. We know that Mercury was once a thriving, lush planet filled with red forests. Now it’s been completely terraformed by the Vex and turned into a machine planet that’s sole purpose is to bring about their galactic domination.

Having completely hollowed out Mercury, the Vex have built an enormous simulation called the Infinite Forest which they can utilise to plan their actions in reality. We’ll have to dive into the challenges that await us here if we’re to find out what’s really going on between Osiris and the Vex.

Below we’ve put together a number of sections which should help take you through each stage of the Infinite Forest, or at least help you get to grips with what challenges the simulation has in store for you.

For everything on Destiny 2’s first expansion, check out our Curse of Osiris guide for links to all of our walkthroughs and more!

Editor's UPDATE: We've added a new section to our basic overview and made sure that everything is still bang up to date. Keep this page bookmarked for all the latest info!

Basic Overview

Three Towers

You’re able to explore three distinct simulations of Mercury in the Infinite Forest: the past, present and future. Upon entering the forest, you’ll be greeted by three towers with gateways that lead to these different time periods.

Here’s where each tower will take you.

  • Far Left: Distant past.
  • Middle: Present.
  • Far Right: Future.

First steps

As you move towards these towers, you’ll encounter all manner of simulated enemies including Cabal, Fallen and Hive. Tougher, disguised enemies called “Daemons” will also need to be defeated in order to generate new pathways and advance.

Entering a tower

Once you’ve reached a main tower, you’ll be transported to a simulation of Mercury in the past, present and future. You’ll still encounter a wide variety of enemies from other races and move through a space that’s constantly evolving.

Is it randomly generated?

While the Infinite Forest isn’t randomly or procedurally generated in any way, it’s been described by Bungie as “intelligently assembled”. In theory, this means that every time you enter the Infinite Forest you’ll battle through a new set of encounters that have been crafted by the development team to give it some fresh replay value.

In a hurry?

Almost every time you're tasked with entering the Infinite Forest, you're only there to get to a certain gate. Like us, sometimes you just want to get to that location without all the fuss. In this regard, it's entirely possible to skip around 90% of the faff and sprint straight for the objective marker. Sometimes you'll need to unlock a gate by taking out some Daemons but other than that, feel free to ignore all the enemies and you won't be penalised for it.

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris guides

That’s all we have for you now, but we’ll continue updating this guide if and when Bungie decides to give it a major overhaul. Keep this page bookmarked for more in the future!
