The Deep Stone Crypt is an infamous subroutine that seeded the first Exo consciousness.


Most information known about the Deep Stone Crypt comes from a dream that many Exos experience. In the dream, a tower lies on a black plain. Some make it to the tower in peace, while others are forced to slay an army of everyone they have met in order to reach it.[1] The late Hunter Vanguard Cayde-6 vaguely recalled becoming an Exo in his Treasure Island Book, where he recorded going to an icy moon.[2] The Deep may also be refering to the Darkness, while Stone Crypt may suggest that it is hidden, dead or dormant in stone or something similar. In the events of the Season of the Worthy, Ana Bray notes that she is working with Rasputin to find the location of the Deep Stone Crypt; given the control that he can exert over Exos it is perplexing why Rasputin does not know its location.

In Beyond Light, it is revealed that the Deep Stone Crypt is located on Europa, and will be the setting of a Raid.[3]


  • The way in which Exos may reach the tower peacefully resembles somewhat the ancient Roman concepts of the Elysium Fields.
  • The 'dream' the android NS-5 Sonny experienced in the 2004 movie I, Robot bears similar resemblance to the manner in which the Deep Stone Crypt is described in Destiny. Bungie may have drawn inspiration from this during development.
  • The tower is mentioned by Ana Bray in one of her quotes, where she states that she knows as little about the Bray family as the Guardians do about Deep Stone Crypt.[4]
  • Cayde-6 also references "The Long Slow Whisper," which may be related to either the subroutine of The Deep Stone Crypt, or the location of the Deep Stone Crypt.
