"A crashed colony ship, an interspecies war... Cayde-6 got that adventure he wanted. Go save him from it."
— In game description

Six is the ninth story mission of Destiny 2, taking place between Looped and Sacrilege, and is the last mission on Nessus. Completion of the mission will unlock all 7 Adventures on Nessus: Hack the Planet and Deep Conversation. Release and Lost Crew, Unbreakable and Exodus Siege, as well as the Invitation from the Emperor.

During the course of the mission Six the Guardian finds the Vex teleporter in which Cayde-6 is trapped and manages to shut it down, freeing Cayde. However Cayde promptly comes under fire from the Fallen who have followed him and/or the Guardian to Nessus, just as they followed the City forces led by Commander Zavala and Sloane to Titan[note 1], and have now been ambushed by the Vex while attempting to scavenge the Exodus Black. The player fights through these two warring parties to reach and rescue Cayde who has taken cover from the Fallen inside the Exodus Black. The player defeats the Fallen besieging Cayde and the AI Failsafe, meets with him, learns what he was doing on Nessus, convinces him to rejoin the Vanguard and learns where Ikora Rey went after the fall of the City.

Transcript[edit]

Gameplay
[edit]

Start Mission
The Cistern
Nessus, Unstable Centaur

Ghost: Failsafe, we're at your coordinates. Cayde is stuck inside a Vex portal system. Can you help us find the power source so we can get him out?

Failsafe (Cheery): Oh yes! By locating the original Vex Teleporter the Cayde Unit used, you can shut down the loop and free him. I can guide you there.

Ghost: OK. So we find the Vex teleporter and shut it down. Easy.

Free Cayde-6 from the Vex teleporter loop
Find and deactivate the Vex Teleporter to free Cayde
The player enters Pools of Luminance
Pool of Luminance
Inside the player finds large glowing pools of white liquid, which will damage them if they stay in it, forcing the player to stay on the rocks and out of the radiolarian stream as they advance

Ghost: Ew. This looks like the stuff inside the Vex.

Failsafe (Cheery): It's called Radiolaria. You know, mind fluid!

Ghost: Ikora says it's an organic compound, which means the Vex are not pure robot

The player rounds the corner into another room and is confronted by a squad of flying Harpies. The player kills the Harpies

Ghost: What could possibly have brought Cayde to Nessus?

Failsafe (Cheery): I know the answer!

Ghost: One: stop listening in on us. Two: what's the answer?

Failsafe (Cheery): He asked me not to tell anyone!

The player enters a large area. The exit at the opposite end of the room is blocked by an energy barrier. Much of the floor space is covered by radiolaria, restricting the player to a central platform leading up towards the exit. [Ghost Scans|Ghost Scan]] NE-POL-1 is located within this area.
Ghost: "There's nothing special about this crystal chard. Well, other than it being buried in a radiolarian vapor cloud that carries the energy readings of six stars. I guess that's pretty special."
Free Cayde-6 from the Vex teleporter loop
Investigate the area for signs of the Vex teleporter
The player approaches the center of the room

Failsafe (Cheery): Warning! Vex threat detected! They are blocking your path to the Cayde Unit's teleporter. You will have ti eliminate them.

Free Cayde-6 from the Vex teleporter loop
Eliminate the Vex to reach the Teleporter
Vex Fanatics spawn in, familiarising the player with this unit, and their explosive damage upon destruction to everything around them. Emphasising this point, Fanatics are placed amidst larger Vex formations and the novice player can chain explosions to wipe out the VEx by targeting the Fanatics.
The last Vex are destroyed and the barrier is deactivated.
Free Cayde-6 from the Vex Teleporter loop
Find the Vex teleporter and take it

Failsafe (Cheery): I thought your wholesale destruction of the Vex would make me miss my captain and crew less.

Ghost: Did it?

Failsafe (Cheery): It did not.

The player continues through towards the teleporter

Ghost: This is the Vex teleporter?

Failsafe (Cheery): Yes! The Cayde-6 will want it. You should pick it up!

Deactivate and Remove
If the player delays picking up the teleporter

Ghost: Seems like you need to pick that up. I'd do it, but... no hands.

The player deactivates the teleporter and picks it up.

Cayde-6 (off screen): Take that, you scrap heap! I'm out, baby! Out! Woo!

Ghost: Cayde! Where are you?

Cayde: Hey! You did it! You got me out! Ha! Haha...And...wh-where - where am I?

Failsafe (Cheer): Cayde Unit, you are near the remains of my reactor core. Welcome to the Exodus Black. (Depressed): Where all your dreams come true.

Rendezvous with Cayde-6
Find a way out and get to Cayde-6's location
The player enters a teleporter and arrives back at the beginning of Pools of Luminance, and makes their way outside, back into The Cistern
Rendezvous with Cayde-6
Make your way towards the Exodus Black to meet with Cayde-6

Cayde: Seems like you met my new friends, Failsafe, and her evil twin, Failsafe.

Ghost: Which is the evil one?

Failsafe (Cheery): If I had feelings, they would be hurt.

The Cistern

Cayde: Uh oh. The Fallen's got the Vex in a tizzy, and by tizzy I mean murderous rampage. I'll hunker down in the Exodus Black

Failsafe (Cheery): Here? But my hull is in 108 pieces. Decks 1 through 20 are buried. And my coolant system - (Depressed): I am a mess.

Cayde: Oh we know, Failsafe. We know.

Failsafe (Cheery): Intruder alert!

Cayde: It's me! It's - It's "the Cayde Unit"?

Failsafe (Cheery): False. I mean, true. But you are attracting large numbers of Fallen to my position.

Cayde: Dagnabbit! Failsafe, they're shooting at me!

Failsafe (Cheery): Then I advise you not get shot.

The player arrives at the crash site, Glade of Echoes, finding the Fallen and Vex at war with each other. A large Minotaur class chassis, Acanthos, Gate Lord, is in the field laying waste to the Fallen. In the background, a Fallen Walker blows up as the player enters the fray.

Ghost: I was hoping the Fallen and Vex would finish each other off on Venus.

Cayde: But then you'd miss all the fun!

Ghost: That is a really big Vex.

If the player heads towards the Exodus Black they will find their path blocked by Vex barrier

Ghost: Guys, we're blocked! The Vex put up a barrier!

Failsafe (Cheery): I know how to disable that barrier! (Depressed): The big Vex, smash it.

Rendezvous with Cayde-6
Eliminate Acanthos, Gate Lord
The player engages Acanthos, who teleports away after being reduced by one and then two thirds health, moving successively closer to the barrier each time. The player destroys the Gate Lord, lowering the barrier and proceeding on to the Exodus Black crash site.
Rendezvous with Cayde-6
Make your way towards the Exodus Black to meet with Cayde-6

Ghost: The Gate Lord's down. Hold on, Cayde, we're on our way.

Cayde: Uh, that's good to hear, 'cause the Fallen just found us.

Failsafe (Cheery): Activating defensive shield. The Cayde-6 must stand back.

Cayde: Hey, nice one, Failsafe! The Fallen can't get to us now! That's - that's right though, they - they can't, right?... get to us?

Exodus Black

Cayde: Hey, you probably wanna hustle. I think they just said something about ripping my beautiful horn off my face? My beautiful, beautiful horn. Then again, my Eliksni is pretty rusty.

Failsafe (Cheery): Intruder alert!

Ghost: Ugh. IT'S US!

The player approaches the Exodus Black core, finding its shield up, preventing the Fallen who surround the site from entering. The Fallen, led by Jaliks, Fallen Captain are bombarding the shield. Ghost Scans NE-EXB-4 and NE-EXB-2, located in the area, show that the Fallen tried, and failed to hack Failsafe and the Exodus Black, even losing a Servitor in the process:
Ghost: "The Fallen set up this terminal for remote access to Exodus Black's security system. I could have told thaem that wouldn't work. Bet Failsafe had fun with them, though." - NE-EXB-4
Ghost: "This Servitor shorted out when it tried to interface with the Exodus Black's network. And then limped out here to shut down. It looks like Failsafe wasn't gentle."
Rescue Cayde-6
Suppress the Fallen around the Exodus Black
The player attacks the Fallen, causing Jaliks to teleport away to safety before returning with reinforcements to try and kill the player. The player defeats them and kills Jaliks, who drops a Scorch Cannon upon his death.
Pick Up Scorch Cannon
The player picks up the Scorch Cannon, which is unique in having 50 rounds, and then proceeds to destroy the remaining Fallen around the Exodus Black. The Fallen are defeated.

Failsafe (Cheery): You have saved us! Updating my crew log.

Rendezvous with Cayde-6
Find Cayde-6 inside the Exodus Black

Failsafe (Cheery): New captain registered. Welcome aboard, Captain!

{End Gameplay}

Cutscene
[edit]

The Guardian enters the Exodus Black, with Failsafe visible in the background. The Guardian looks around trying to find Cayde as Cayde's Ghost rises up from behind his cover. Cayde, still hiding, reaches up and grabs his Ghost, forcing it back down to safety.

Cayde: Hey-hey! Down, down, down...

Cayde pokes his head out from his hiding place as the Guardian waves the troublesome teleporter at him sarcastically.
Cayde stands up

Cayde: So it's true.

Cayde walks over to the Guardian

Cayde: The Light found its way back to you. Not that I'm jealous or nothin', but take it wasy out there, will ya? You're making me look bad.

The Guardian tosses the teleporter to Cayde, who catches it, and then proceeds to tinker with it.

Ghost: What, may we ask, were you going to do with a Vex teleporter?

Cayde: Get up close and personal with Ghaul. Put a bullet in his head. Then maybe eat a sandwich.

The Guardian and Ghost look at each other, confused, while Cayde returns to messing around with the teleporter.

Cayde: Gotta work out a few kinks first. Fun fact about the Vex tech, not as intuitive as you would think.

Ghost: Cayde, you can't do this alone.

Cayde: The hell I can't

Cayde does something wrong and the teleporter sparks, shocking him.

Ghost: Ow!

Ghost (sigh) Even if you manage to kill Ghaul, when the Red Legion leaves a system - defeat or victory - they leave nothing behind.

Cayde: The Cabal are bad guys who do bad things. Yes. I get it.

Ghost: I'm sorry, but I do not think you do. The Cabal literally leave nothing behind. They have a weapon that can destroy a star! And it is pointed directly at our sun

CaydeHey-hey-hey! Easy, easy, you're going to blow a bulb.

Ghost: Zavala has a plan. He needs you, Cayde.

Cayde: Yes, well Zavala always says he has a plan, but sometimes he just -

Cayde: Wait - Zavala said he needs me?

Cayde: As in, you heard those exact words coming out of Zavala's mouth

Ghost: Yes. We did.

Cayde: Please tell me you recorded it!

The Guardian looks at him disdainfully

Cayde: Well did Ikora at least hear it?

Ghost: Actually, Zavala lost her after the City fell. We don't know where she is

Cayde turns away for a moment, thinking.

Cayde: Io. Io... It's - it's where she'd go to look for answers.

Cayde walks off slowly before turning back to the Guardian

Cayde: Hey, um... Thanks. I owe ya one.

The Guardian nods as the camera zooms out within the room as Cayde-6 exits and the scene ends.

Trivia[edit]

  • The mission title "Six" is likely a reference to Cayde-6, who is rescued during the mission.
