Complete Guide to The Scorn, Destiny 2: Forsaken's New Enemy

Forsaken Concept

In Bungie’s first significant expansion to Destiny 2, Guardians are introduced to The Scorn, a new faction of enemies made up of Fallen pirates from the Prison of Elders. This arena played a major part in Destiny and is getting a second look in Forsaken as Guardians head to the Reef to explore. This guide will provide an overview of everything we know about The Scorn.

The Scorn – The Eight Barons

The Scorn are ruled by eight Fallen Barons, made infamous in the Stand of the Last Gunslinger trailer. The Barons will play a major role in Destiny 2: Forsaken and are made up of the following:
