What is Fireteam Finder in Destiny 2?

Season of the Wish introduced the new Fireteam Finder system into Destiny 2, finally giving players an in-game option to find a team for Raids, Dungeons, Nightfalls, Trials, and more. It’s currently under its first stress test, where Bungie will take the feedback and continue to work on the feature until its release – probably around January/February.

How To Use Fireteam Finder in Destiny 2?

Once the feature launches this Thursday, November 30th, from 9am to 5pm PT – players will be able to use the new matchmaking system in Raids only. It might be a good time for inexperienced raiders to jump into their first ever runs.

However, because this is a Destiny 2 feature, there’s a chance that the Fireteam Finder won’t work correctly, it might be slow or not work at all. It’s a cynical viewpoint, but also an incredibly realistic one.

Fireteam Finder Replacing Other LFG Sources?

While I don’t think the new system will outright kill groups like the Destiny 2 LFG Discord, it certainly creates more chances for new/returning players to get into the endgame content. I’ve been using LFG services, either on the Bungie website, or through the discord, for almost 10 years now.

Since my first Vault of Glass raid, up until my most recent Crota clear. I’ve met hundreds of people, including my best friends and raid teams, through the old unorthadox systems. It’ll be interested to see how Fireteam Finder will bring more guardians together in the future.

It’s a great inclusion that people have been asking about for almost a decade now, Bungie already tried with the Guided Games system, but it proved to be too complex and rigid for 99% of people.

I've been playing games for pretty much as long as I can remember. There's about 15 years of gaming experience under my belt at this point. Destiny, Warframe, Halo, CoD and the list goes on. I was a brief world record holder for Destiny 2 speedrunning, as well as a season-long stint as a top 10 ranked PVP player. More recently, I've been shooting for the Celeste speedrun leaderboards. In-between sessions of getting too mad at shooters, I spend a lot of my time playing gacha games like Honkai Star Rail and Limbus Company.
