Enemy of My Enemy
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Enemy of My Enemy is the fourth story mission in Destiny The Taken King. It takes place on the Dreadnaught in Saturn's rings and the Guardian's objective is to steal Cabal field intelligence on Oryx.
Upon arriving at the Hull Breach, the Guardian finds Cabal and Hive in a continuous battle.
The Guardian either wears down the Cabal defense themselves, or allows the Hive to do it for them. Eventually, the door to the ship opens, and several Cabal reinforcements, led by a Colossus, run towards the main site of the battle.
The Guardian runs past the reinforcements and inside the Dantalion Exodus VI.
The Guardian wipes out the Cabal defenses inside the ship's hangar. While exploring the interior, the Guardian notices three turbines embedded in the floor. One of them is still active; they send the Ghost to scan it.
The Guardian continues searching until the Ghost gets their attention.
The Guardian ventures into a control room, where a few Psions wait. The Guardian eliminates them and sends the Ghost to scan a nearby terminal.
A door opens, leading to another part of the ship. A vent leaking some kind of vapor grabs Ghost's attention:
The Guardian follows the hallway to another part of the Dreadnaught, where the Cabal team, led by Primus Ta'aun, is fighting Taken and Hive.
The Guardian fights the Cabal team and follows Ta'aun as he moves along toward the Rupture, defending himself against the overwhelming odds while his men are slaughtered. Taken are surrounding the team from all sides, wiping out any infantry the Guardian hasn't already put down.
A swarm of Taken Wizards warp in, surrounding Ta'aun and killing any remaining Cabal. The Wizards promptly attack Ta'aun with a furious barrage. Suddenly, a Taken Blight appears behind the Primus and takes him by surprise. Too weak to run, the Primus utters a final shriek before the orb sucks him in completely, his Heavy Slug Thrower dropping to the floor.
The Guardian finds a portal on the far side of the Mausoleum, facing a large bottomless pit bathed in light.
Eris Morn appears on the comm channel.
The Guardian searches the area, and finds a statue. They send the Ghost to scan it:
The Guardian continues looking until they find a second statue.
After finding the third statue:
The Guardian returns to it, and with a booming noise, the portal opens.
Dozens of Thrall emerge from the portal and rush towards the Guardian.
The Guardian defends themselves against the seemingly endless horde of Thrall. Eventually, Zavala comes into the comms:
If the Guardian continues fighting Thrall or waits to enter:
The Guardian jumps over them, and runs toward the open portal, but a mysterious force pushes them back, sending them flying, landing a great distance away from the Rupture.
An Echo of Oryx emerges from the portal, accompanied by a Taken battalion. Eventually, the Guardian kills the Echo, and the Taken retreat. The portal is now closed, and a silence hovers over the Mausoleum.
