Destiny 2’s Meditations are a way to replay Red War campaign missions — and earn loot for doing so. But as with so many things in Destiny 2, there are a few opaque mechanics surrounding them. In this guide, we’ll explain Meditations, how they work and what you’ll get for doing them.
What are Meditations?
Meditations are a type of Activity in Destiny 2, just like Adventures, the Crucible, Public Events, Public Spaces and Strikes. After you’ve completed the Red War campaign, Meditations allow you to replay campaign missions.
How do I find Meditations?
After you’ve completed the Red War campaign and unlocked the Tower, visit Ikora Rey. She’ll give you the Meditations quest and allow you to choose between three campaign missions to replay. Choose one, and it’ll appear as a red banner on your map.
Interact with the contraption to her right to replay the mission you selected. When you’ve replayed that mission, it’ll disappear from view. Return to Ikora, choose another mission and repeat the process until you’ve completed them all.
How do I get more Meditations?
Meditations refresh (or reset, depending on your point of view) at the Weekly Reset, every Tuesday at 5 a.m. ET. At that point, you’ll be able to speak with Ikora again and choose from among three more Meditations.
What do I get for doing Meditations?
Vanguard Research Tokens, which you can give to Ikora for engrams.
Destiny 2 has a lot of loot to give you, and not all of it pops out of the heads of your enemies. Vendors are scattered around Destiny 2’s worlds. Performing certain actions on those worlds earns you vendor-specific loot, like Ikora’s Vanguard Research Tokens. Collect enough of them, and return to the vendor associated with them, and you’ll receive rewards. Be sure to check out our Destiny 2 vendors guide to learn more.
