Find her in the Tower to complete her quests and three new story missions, increase your Light, and earn the weapons and armor you’ll need to face what waits in the dark below.
Summon your courage, Guardians. Crota waits in the dark below. Gather your most trusted allies to form a Fireteam, six Guardians strong. Don your best, battle-hardened weapons and armor. Master the depths of the Hellmouth. Face Crota, and live, and glory and reward are yours for the taking.
New Strike : In the Jovian Complex, deep in the old Cosmodrome, lives Omnigul. Here, she works to expand the Hive army in preparation for the return of her master, Crota, and the Hive’s invasion of Earth. Only you and a fireteam of brave Guardians can eliminate this threat, moving closer to saving our world and growing your legends.”
