From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Tangled Shore is a lawless asteroid wasteland on the outskirts of the Reef and a Destination near the Dreaming City. It is the primary home of the rogue Fallen pirate faction known as the Scorn, along with pockets of Hive and Cabal. The Spider, head of a Fallen crime syndicate, is the de facto power and world vendor of the Tangled Shore.
The Tangled Shore is a collection of asteroids kept together with grappling hooks and cables. It is a lawless land within The Reef, where the Scorn settled after escaping from the Prison of Elders. The region is essentially a Fallen badland and is also home to a branch of Savathûn's Hive that have crashed into the shore. Remnants of the Red Legion also are warring within the chaotic badland as well. The Fallen are currently going through a major civil war in the Tangled Shore, between the Scorn and House of Dusk. Additionally, a Fallen crime syndicate resides deep within the Shore, forced into hiding by the Scorn.
The Shore's asteroids are pockmarked with caves, ramshackle pirate bases, and hidden shortcuts. A crashed warship filled with Hive is also present. The Shore was once ruled by a Fallen called The Spider, but the arrival of Uldren Sov sent him into hiding.
A massive ring-shaped complex of structures can be seen in the sky of the Tangled Shore, echoing a similar structure seen in the Dreaming City. It is believed to act as the portal to the Dreaming City, but is never seen in use.
