Solved! Destiny 2 Secret Quest - Bastion And Corridors Of Time Guide

How to figure out what the Vex are up to in Destiny 2.

7 Comments

Occasionally, a giant secret appears in Destiny 2 that takes a whole lot of time and effort to uncover. The newest was a quest called "Explore the Corridors of Time," which included an intricate puzzle that brought the entire Destiny 2 community together. Solving it unlocked a quest to earn the Kinetic fusion rifle Bastion--and showed off a new way for Destiny 2 to tell its story.

You can now just grab the Bastion quest from Saint-14 in the Tower, provided you've completed his storyline quests, which include An Impossible Task and Recovering the Past. Check out our complete Bastion guide to get your new Exotic weapon as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, the Corridors of Time stopped being available with the weekly reset on Tuesday, January 28, so if you wanted to see what was in there, you've missed your shot.

The quest returns you to the Corridors of Time, that weird interdimensional gateway used by the Vex and which is linked to Osiris's Sundial on Mercury. We last ventured through the Corridors of Time to find and save Saint-14 earlier in the season. Now that that's accomplished, Osiris wants you to head back into the Corridors and explore them to figure out what their deal is.

To start the quest, head to Osiris on Mercury and talk to him. Claim the "Exploring the Corridors of Time" quest from him, then activate the Sundial to transport yourself back to the strange realm. After that, it's a matter of figuring out the path; the Corridors are a series of doorways that link to big rooms full of Vex, and each of the doorways is marked with a sign. Community members on Destiny's r/raidsecrets subreddit have worked together to determine which paths are required to navigate the Corridors and avoid getting lost.

Corridors Of Time Solution

As it turned out, each pass through the Corridors of Time produced a code, which the Destiny 2 community determined created a map of the Corridors. Piecing together the map provided a new pathway through the Corridors, which ultimately completes this step of the "Exploring the Corridors of Time" mission. Note that if you want to unlock all the lore and the secret emblem hidden in the Corridors of Time, you should do those steps first, before completing the quest by entering this solution.

Here's the sequence to complete the Corridors of Time:

  1. Clover
  2. Diamond
  3. Snake
  4. Clover
  5. Plus
  6. Plus
  7. Hexagon
  8. Hexagon
  9. Hexagon
  10. Plus
  11. Diamond
  12. Plus
  13. Snake
  14. Diamond
  15. Clover
  16. Snake
  17. Plus
  18. Plus
  19. Snake
  20. Snake
  21. Hexagon
  22. Diamond
  23. Clover
  24. Plus
  25. Diamond
  26. Hexagon
  27. Hexagon
  28. Diamond
  29. Plus
  30. Diamond

Finishing the quest leaves you with a bit of story dialogue and reveals who that tomb you've been seeing in the Timelost Vault actually belongs to. The quest also gets you set up to complete the quest to earn Bastion, the season's next Exotic weapon.

The Pigeon and the Phoenix Lore Book Codes

The codes denoting your pathway through the Corridors of Time appear on the obelisks. Read them starting with the top-right corner and going clockwise, with the final symbol being the one in the middle.

Discovering the final solution to the Corridors of Time was a pretty huge undertaking. The first step in the puzzle was to work through 19 different pathways through the maze, with the Corridors dishing out lore drops as you complete each one in the new "The Pigeon and the Phoenix" lore book. The codes for each pathway appeared each hour on the Sundial obelisks scattered around the solar system. The paths lead you to a place called the Timelost Vault, and activating an object there (marked, ominously, with "???") reveals a bunch of symbols on the floor below.

Looking down through the glass floor of the Timelost Vault reveals these hexagonal codes. By finding codes with patterns on the edges that correspond, the Destiny 2 community managed to create a map that provides a new path through the Corridors of Time.

Each of the 19 codes reveals a portion of a larger map that the community reconstructed--and following that map earns you a secret emblem. In the meantime, to get all 19 pieces of the lore book, you'll need to access the Timelost Vault through all 19 pathways. The pathway to unlock the emblem is located below.

Once you reach the Vault and activate it, you can keep walking forward to get teleported back to the beginning of the Corridors. Approach the blank sign to the left of the first door to reset the Corridors so you can start the next pathway.

There's also a special emblem that the Destiny 2 community discovered hidden in the Timelost Vault: the Savior of the Past emblem. That code was discovered by piecing together various players' images from the floor of the Timelost Vault every time they entered it with a new code, and stitching those pieces together revealed a new code that led to the emblem. It requires a slightly more involved pathway to unlock. Here's how to reach it.

Savior of the Past Emblem Code

  1. Diamond
  2. Clover
  3. Snake
  4. Plus
  5. Hexagon
  6. Hexagon
  7. Plus
  8. Hexagon
  9. Diamond
  10. Clover
  11. Snake

While the 19 pathways gleaned from obelisks earn you the lore book allowed the community to build the map to the emblem, that wasn't enough to finish the quest and solve the mystery of the Corridors of Time. The community used the codes found in the emblem Timelost Vault to construct the Corridors of Time map, using the images revealed beneath the floor of the Timelost Vault. Building the map took days, but it's finally been solved.

Visit Saint-14

Once you enter the final code for the Corridors of Time, you'll be sent back to Saint-14 for the next step. Talk to him and he'll send you to the Tangled Shore to kill Fallen enemies. Make sure you complete the Corridors of Time on a character with which you've also finished the other Saint-14 quests in order to progress the "Exploring the Corridors of Time" quest. He'll give you the next step, "Memento," which puts you on the road to earning Bastion.
