Destiny 2: Forsaken players have found a way to make wishes in the game’s new raid

Ever wish you could skip a certain boss? Now you actually can

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

The Last Wish raid in Destiny 2: Forsaken is a little over a week old at this point. But in typical Destiny fashion, there are still plenty of secrets to discover. Late last week, players discovered that you can actually make wishes in the new raid. This can open up all sorts of doors — sometimes literally — or add fun, cosmetic effects to the game while you fight.

The wishing room is located just before the first fight in the raid: Kalli, the Corrupted. After some light jumping, you can climb your way into a small room filled with panels. Shooting these panels causes them to display one of the many different symbols used in the raid. If you manage to recreate a pattern that can be found on one of many wish plates scattered around the galaxy, and then step on a small panel inside the wishing room, you’ll activate the wish.

The wishes vary between useful teleportations — such as wish seven, which allows you to teleport all the way to the final boss of the raid — and silly jokes. Wish eight, for example, will play Paul McCartney’s “Hope for the Future” for about 20 seconds. Wish 11 will activate the “Grunt birthday party” effect from the Halo games for the remainder of the raid. For those unfamiliar, this makes every headshot explode into confetti, followed by a silly noise.

As of this writing, not all of the wishes have been discovered. Players believe that there are 15 wishes in total, while only nine are currently known. The community is still looking for wish one, nine, ten, thirteen, fourteen, and fifteen. It’s unclear if these remaining patterns will be goofs or serious, gameplay altering wishes.

If you want to help find the remaining wishes, the post linked above from the Raid Secrets subreddit has over 850 comments.
