Destinypedia contains spoilers[edit]

Main article: Destinypedia:Spoiler Policy

Destinypedia maintains the policy of documenting all information about the Destiny universe in an "omniscient" point of view. Though there is a "spoiler" warning for content of material that has not yet been released, it is by no means used every time spoilers are present. When using Destinypedia, you will find that every article contains as complete and thorough information as is possible. If you do not wish to have the details about any Destiny related storyline spoiled for you, it would be best if you did not use Destinypedia until you have finished playing or reading through the storyline.
