Cathedral of Dusk is a Crucible map located in the Dreadnaught orbiting Saturn.[2] It was added to the map rotation on October 26, 2015, with the debut of the Festival of the Lost Event.[3] the map would later be brought back to Destiny 2 with the launch of the Season of Plunder on August 23, 2022.

Grimoire description[edit]

"The impact of Oryx's arrival was immediate. He was all full of bluster and noise. We took offense — and that wasn't all we took."
Lord Shaxx

ARENA DESIGNATION: Cathedral of Dusk
Dreadnaught, Rings of Saturn

As soon as the first Guardians penetrated the Dreadnaught, Shaxx's Redjacks launched a boarding party to Oryx's fortress. By war's end, they'd fought all the way to the ship's "impossible weapon," the Dark ordnance that obliterated the Awoken fleet.

It was there they found what the Warlocks named the "Cathedral of Dusk." A Hive burial site for— what? A former master of Oryx? Comrade? Lover? It was vile. And obvious that Oryx never expected the Light to reach so deep inside his throne, to such an intimate space. But he didn't expect a lot of things — like a Guardian training ground atop the husk of his dead ship.[4]
