Cayde's Stash is the second story mission in Destiny's expansion, The Taken King. It takes place in the Cosmodrome on Earth, and the Guardian's objective is to find a Stealth Drive among Cayde's secret stash hidden within the remains of an old Colony ship now occupied by the House of Devils.
The Guardian either engages the enemies or runs past them, heading towards the Devils' Lair. Portals and shadow blights pollute the area.
The Guardian uses the pieces of broken bridge to make their way across to the other side.
As the Guardian steps around more puddles of the Taken residue, they see that the door has been opened,a black hole at the entrance.
The Guardian arrives at the bottom of The Devil's Spire, where several Taken Thrall attack them. The Guardian defeats them and finds three elevators on the far side of the room.
Cautiously, the Guardian steps inside. The door slides shut behind them, and the elevator slowly makes its way up the skyscraper.
The elevator rides higher and higher, without any issues. While waiting, Ghost provides some insight on the situation of Earth:
The elevator finally slows to a stop, at the top of the Spire. The door opens for the Guardian.
The Guardian walks outside, only to find the bridge leading to the colony ship has been turned, ninety degrees from the entrance on the other side.
The Guardian spots some stairs and scales them, leading to the top of the bridge's control panel.
The comms fall silent as the Guardian continues scaling the empty worn down tower. The view is breathtaking, half of the Cosmodrome can be seen from this height, including the Wall, where their legend began. The Guardian finds a fuse box, and allows the Ghost to look into it. The bridge eventually comes to life, and slowly moves back across, the rusted metal groaning with effort.
The bridge completes its rotation, loudly scraping against the entrance on the other side, until it gently comes to rest... before immediately collapsing into pieces, sending the far half of the bridge careening downward. Several seconds later, a loud crash is heard, signifying its landing. The Guardian uses their movement ability to cross to the near half of the bridge, still intact. They reach the bottom of the colony ship.
A squad of Taken teleport into the Guardian's path, but they eliminate the forces and continue upward. There they find more Taken fighting Fallen enemies. The Guardian either wipes them out, or leaves them uninterrupted, and climbs the ship, even higher above the ground. They reach a narrow crawl space and are forced to crouch, making their way to a single I-beam.
The view is seemingly endless; the Guardian is miles above the surface. However, they safely make it to solid ground, encountering more Taken and Fallen along the way. Eventually, they find a platoon of Fallen guarding a Grav-Lift. After killing them, the Guardian could notice a secret hatchway off to the left of the lift and enter.
The Guardian enters a barren room and continues on to a door opposite them. Inside they enter another room with nothing but Fallen crates.
The Guardian finds a card and has Ghost scan it.
The Guardian returns to the lift and steps in, the lift effortlessly taking them the rest of the way to the top.
A group of Fallen stand in the area and open fire on the Guardian. Suddenly, a light flashes, and the Fallen are all killed. An Echo of Oryx floats in the center of the room, wings beating furiously.
The Guardian eliminates the Echo and surrounding Taken, and the blight is lifted.
The Ghost does so, and finds the location. The Guardian sends it to a conspicuous looking case, and it disappears, leaving a pile of stealth drives.
Fades in to a view of the Traveler. A Guardian's jumpship flies expertly towards the Tower Hangar before decelerating and gently landing inside. A shipwright Frame uses signal wands to direct the ship's landing. Another Frame walks into view, bending over and picking up one of Cayde's stealth drives. The camera follows the Frame as they gingerly carry it to another area of the dock. A human, visible only from the waist down walks towards a table. The camera slowly tilts to reveal Amanda Holliday, looking over ship schematics. A robotic voice calls for her attention.
Amanda looks up and turns toward the robotic assistant.
Cayde-6 approaches Amanda's workbench, and Holliday turns to greet him.
Cayde puts his hands on his hips.
The camera cuts to a wider angle; The view shows it is obviously Eris Morn's personal vessel; her symbol clearly displayed on the nose. A few workers, both human and robotic, are working on it and making adjustments.
He gives a thumbs-up.
Cayde picks up a wrench off Amanda's workbench.
Amanda rolls her eyes and flashes him an amused smirk. Cayde fiddles with the wrench in his hands.
Cayde playfully holds his pose, while Amanda grins and lifts the wrench from his outstretched hands, placing it back on the table.
Cayde silently agrees and turns to leave.
Cayde turns back to her, seemingly shocked.
Cayde exits, leaving the rest of the crew to work on the ships. Fade to black.
Many of the lines during the elevator ride come from dialogue randomization if it is a Daily Heroic. According to a redditer in the same there is a line about elevator music.
