(Mission Begins)

Mirror Void: We have no signal on any of the Curators! The Fireteam's comm line is open, but nonresponsive!

Ghost: Mirror, we're here! We crashed, but… we're here. What is this place?

Mirror Void: The Gardener contains many more multitudes than you or I could ever comprehend.

Mirror Void: You are yet in the threshold. Whatever lies between you and the Traveler's Pale Heart is a side effect of the Witness's paracausal mutilations.

Mirror Void: I can feel its power stretching through the portal… I will try to buy us time. Go!

The Fireteam traverses across the many platforms in the Threshold, each representing a location of their past. Eventually they discovering a well of Darkness guarded by hordes of Taken.

Ghost: Taken. The Witness must be using them to search for us.

After approaching the well and engaging with the Taken, a seed of Darkness appears. The Fireteam then shoots it, revealing a non physical pathway they imagined.

Ghost: Ah! The Darkness unraveled and it's… projecting something. An overlay of possibilities.

Ghost: We have Taken incoming! But I'm picking up something strange with them, a concentrated source of Light.

The Fireteam defeats incoming Taken forces led by the Will-Crushed Centurion, receiving an icon of Light in the process.

Ghost: Aha! We're imbued with extra Light now. Let's try activating that concentration of Darkness again!

Interacting with the well of Darkness, the Fireteam makes the pathway physical.

Ghost: It worked! The Light structures made the imagined structures solid- made them real!

Traversing across the pathway, the Fireteam eventually arrives at a platform with the church from the European Dead Zone. They destroy the three Darkness spikes to bring down the barrier blocking the way inside.

Ghost: Scans are inconclusive. I'm getting conflicting readings on age and material composition.

Shortly after leaving the church, the Fireteam is ambushed by Weavers, reshaped Psion’s wielding the power of Strand.

Ghost: [Fireteam leader name]… I'm not sure what that creature is.

Ghost: It reads like a Psion, but its genetics are scrambled… changed.

Mirror Void: Agents of the Black Fleet. Nezarec, Rhulk, even Calus- they were just the beginning.

The Fireteam continues to fight their way through the Weavers while crossing the platforms. Eventually they climb up to a building and enter inside after bringing down the barrier by destroying the three Darkness spikes.
Darkness Zone. Respawning Restricted.
Shortly after entering, the Fireteam is attacked by Taken guarding another Well of Darkness. Interacting with the seed, the Guardian images another pathway forward. They then defeat a Will-Crushed Centurion to retrieve an icon of Light. When a forcefield blocking the well appears, the Fireteam destroys three Darkness spikes to bring it down and interacts with the seed to make the path real. They traverse the pathway as they get closer to the portal into the Pale Heart

Mirror Void: You-you have to keep moving. I have not been able to reach the Vanguard; even my bond with Thirhe is faint.

Ghost: We'll find the others. We have to.

Upon arriving to a platform with Pyramid architecture, the Fireteam engages with swarms of Taken, however some of them possess Prismatic shielding, making them immune to the Fireteam's attacks.

Ghost: Team, I don't think we can win this fight!

Understanding they couldn't win this battle, the Fireteam flees their onslaught with the Witness's forces.

Mirror Void: [inhales in pain] The Witness is… pushing back against me. Trying to exert its will over everything.

Mirror Void: I will hold the portal open as long as I can! The fate of all things rests on you.

Mirror Void: Fireteam you must hurry.

Upon approaching another platform with a well of Darkness, the Fireteam kills the Taken led by Yateth, Taken Stain to image a path. They slay another Will-Crushed Centurion to claim a icon of Light, however upon receiving the icon, a forcefield is created around the well and further Taken lead by the Will-Chrushed Knight appear. Defeating the Taken and destroying the three Darkness spikes, the Guardian brings forth the pathway.
The Fireteam continues their journey across the Threshold as they get closer to the portal of the Pale Heart.

The Witness: [whispers]

The Witness: You cling so desperately to your pain and your failures. You have lost. Let go.

Mirror Void: [gasps] It sees us! It sees us! I cannot hold this any longer!

As Prismatic Taken appear once again to confront the Fireteam. With little time left and being unable to harm them, the Guardian is once again forced to retreat, following a bird of Light directing them to the portal.

Mirror Void: There are unfathomable powers coursing through your opponent, this is not a fight you can win!

Mirror Void: Fireteam, go… go…

Despite their limited time and the enemy fire coming from the Taken, the Fireteam arrives at the tractor beam, taking them into the Pale Heart as a bright light flashes before their eyes.


Within what appears to be a pale sky, a white bird flies across eventually this endless white abyss fades away as the bird flies across the Traveler, with the Light coming off its wings giving birth to the Ghosts. The vision then cuts to the Traveler floating above the devastated Earth, with fire across the lands, before changing to an astronaut on Mars seeing the rain brought by the Traveler. As the astronaut stretches out his hand to feel the rain, the vision changes to a water droplet falling off a white leaf or feather and hitting the ground. The vision switches to a Sun being destroyed and then a closeup of someone's eye as they gasp. Next it shows the Witness's corruption latch onto a feather in the grass as it consumes it envelopes it entirely, before showing it engulfing the bird as the Traveler is slowly covered in shadow. The vision switches to a Ghost being quickly unharmed damaged, and then unharmed again and to the Witness's hateful face as its corruption spreads across a tree within this white abyss and as the Traveler continues to be covered in shadow. It cuts to a variety of sequences such as a destroyed Ghost, an astronaut wielding fire, Phlithut's armor consumed by corruption, the astronaut wielding stasis, the bird struggling against the corruption, the destroyed Sword of Lies (Deimos's sword), the astronaut wielding strand and void before transcending. As the corruption spreads further, the Traveler sends out an outburst of Light.

The Fireteam wakes up on a platform above of an abyss of Light.

Ghost: Are we… alive? Is this… this is… [small, shaky breath]

Ghost: Fireteam. That vision… I think we're inside the Gardener.

Following the bird of Light once again, the Fireteam traverses across platforms generated by drops. Eventually, they arrive to a tree of Darkness and continue their journey until they enter a cave. After exiting the cave, the Fireteam arrives at the Lost City, Outskirts within the Pale Heart.

Ghost: We've crossed the threshold. This is it. We're really here.

The bird of Light begins to directs the Fireteam further into the Lost City.

Ghost: M-Mirror?

Ghost: I can't pick up anything. No comms signals from Sainus or anywhere outside.

Ghost: Deimos? Phlithut? Ellie? Do you read us?

Ghost: Nothing… We're alone.

Ghost: I… I can feel the Light here. It's everywhere. The grass, the air.

Ghost: It's not what I expected the heart of the Traveler would be like, but it's… beautiful, isn't it? And so familiar.

The Fireteam arrives into a building within the Lost City.

Ghost: This is City architecture.

Continuing their search into the city, the Fireteam encounters swarms of Grims.

Ghost: Servants of the Witness! They must be remnants from a conquered species!

After defeating Grims, the Fireteam arrives at another building with its entrance blocked by a barrier. They defeat a Harvester of Light to receive an icon of Darkness and use it to bring down the barrier. Upon entering inside they uncover a wellspring of colliding Light and Darkness.

Ghost: There! Light and Dark are colliding nearby, forming a wellspring. We can use it!

Using this wellspring of paracausality, the Fireteam transcends, allowing them to briefly wield the powers of Light and Dark in tandem. With this newfound power, the Fireteam is able to break the Transcendent shields protecting the Bound Taken.

Ghost: Your power tour right through their defences!

Upon defeating the Taken, the Fireteam continues to explore the city.

Ghost: I know this street… I know that shop.

Darkness Zone. Respawning Restricted
The Fireteam is ambushed by the forces of the Witness once again, stepping upon the Wellsprings to use the power of Transcendence, they defeat two Harvesters of Light to retrieve icons of Darkness. They then defeat the Icon of Finality and use the icons of Darkness to bring the barrier down. Upon entering inside, it is revealed to be an old command center that feels like an anomaly, with a Prismatic Conflux.

Ghost: This command center it feels familiar yet... it's changed. Light and Dark are welling up here, more than I've ever felt before.

Ghost: It feels like you could reach out and pull all that power to you. Control it.

Ghost: Could you?

Interacting with the Prismatic Conflux, the Risen levitate into the air as Light and Darkness energy flow through them. As the energies merge together, the Risen gain the power of Prismatic, allowing them to wield Light and Darkness together.

Ghost: The line between Light and Dark is-it's gone. It's gone! [Character name], you've-you've fused Light and Dark into harmony. How?

Ghost: We… we can use this. We're stronger than we've ever been. We can use this! Let's go. The transponder signal isn't far.

Following the transponder signal, the Guardian arrives at the old tower

Ghost: The signal's coming from… here…

Ghost: Wait, there's something-Fireteam, watch out!

Shortly after defeating Taken, a tornado-like projection of the Witness appears.
Darkness Zone. Respawning Restricted.
Forces of the Witness led by Vrihn, Subjugator of Gardens appear. Despite its strength, the Fireteam succeeds in slaying the Subjugator.

Ghost: That… that was intense. I think I… I need a minute.

An outburst of Light is sent out, shaking the Pale Heart.

Ghost: [grunts sharply]

Ghost: The Gardener… It's hurting. I can… feel… I feel its…


The Fireteam catches Ghost as he falls to the ground.

Ghost: Thanks.

Ghost: So, what's next? We're outmatched we're alone, and- [distant music plays]

Ghost: And, what is that noise?

???: It's coming from over there.

Following the sound of the music, the Fireteam finds Thirhe with his back turned, waiting while playing some music.

Thirhe: You gotta get better boots, team. I could hear you coming a mile away.

Thirhe walks up a flight of stairs
The Guardian and Ghost walk up the stairs to follow Thirhe.

(Cutscene Ends


Thirhe stands at a campfire.

The cutscene shows the different structures within the Pale Heart

Thirhe: It's in pain.

Thirhe: Pain… I can feel. Like my siblings.

The monolith appears.

Thirhe: The Witness is up in the monolith with their hand on a knife.

The Witness is seen standing at the top of the monolith.

Thirhe: And what it's doing out here; The Final Shape, it cannot come to pass.

Hundreds of people calcified are seen when looking into the Witness's left eye.

Thirhe: It's the end of everything.

Thirhe is seen looking at the monolith in the distance.

Thirhe: So I figure…

Thirhe: …might as well try to stop it.
