One of the most exciting additions to Destiny 2 this season is fishing. Yes, fishing is here and you can unlock it pretty easily by just completing the first few steps of the seasonal questline. You will then get the Destiny 2 Gone Fishin’ quest which will teach you the ways of the more peaceful Guardian’s life as they wait for their lure and bait to do all the work.
Yes, instead of using the new guns like the Destiny 2 Centrifuse, you can put the weapons down for a change and pick up a fishing rod. The best part is that Destiny 2 fishing is incredibly easy to pick up and works a lot like another big game: Animal Crossing. Here’s what you need to do.
Destiny 2 Gone Fishin’
The steps to complete the Gone Fishin’ quest in Destiny 2 are:
- Speak to Suraya Hawthorne in the Tower Bazaar – 1/7
- Collect bait by completing Salvage, Deep Dive, playlist activities, public events, patrols, or by collecting destination materials – 2/7
- Catch fish in the Outskirts in the EDZ – 3/7
- Catch fish in The Cistern on Nessus – 4/7
- Catch fish in the Miasma in Savathun’s Throne World – 5/7
- Release your caught fish at the aquarium in the H.E.L.M. – 6/7
- Return to Suraya Hawthrone in the Tower Bazaar – 7/7
To kick things off after talking to Hawthorne, be sure to play a round of Destiny 2 Salvage. One completion of the activity will almost give you all the bait you need, allowing you to jump to the EDZ, pick up some materials or do some patrols to reach the required number.
From there, you can then travel to the Outskirts and find the fishing pond. For all of these spots, they move around and can spawn in different areas of the region. All you have to do though is look for the bright thin spire shooting up into the air. Where that spire of light touches the ground, you will find the fishing pool.
Once you have caught five fish by pressing square as the hook and bait go underwater you can move on to the next location. After you have caught five fish at each location, go back to the H.E.L.M. and the season’s wing. You will have to deposit your fish to build your aquarium, before finally heading back to the Tower and getting your rewards from Hawthorne.
That’s it. Overall Destiny 2 Gone Fishin’ is a pretty short and easy quest. If you want a guide to the other core quest this season, be sure to take a look at our Destiny 2 Into The Depths quest guide, which focuses on the seasonal narrative in Season of the Deep.
