The list of Grimoire entries is sorted into six main categories—Guardian, Inventory, Allies, Enemies, Places, and Activities. Each of these categories has a number of sub-categories. Grimoire cards were earned through various ways, such as completing a Story mission or Strike, playing a match on a Crucible map, reviving a Dead Ghost, discovering a Calcified Fragment, or finding a Dormant SIVA Cluster. They were also unlocked by earning kills with specific weapon types; each rank allowed upgrading that weapon type to be faster. Last but not least was a series of redeemable codes which could be inputted into Bungie's website that unlocked cards.
Grimoire entries do not feature in Destiny 2, as the story is instead told in-game. Following the release of Destiny 2, the Grimoire feature was removed from the Bungie website and the Destiny app. Cards and their corresponding bonuses are still unlocked in-game but they can not be viewed.
A Grimoire is a textbook of magic used by spellcasters.
