Destiny 2 LFG: How To Find People To Play With

Finding a Fireteam in Destiny 2 is not intuitive, but if you want to conquer the high-level content you need to have someone to play with.  If you are looking for people to play Destiny 2 with you should start with this list of tools. 

Bungie.net Fireteam Finder

The Bungie.net Fireteam Finder can be a bit daunting.  The dropdown filters allow you to sort by Platform, Activity Type and Language, but the tool is web-based instead of being built into the game making it a second-screen choice and a muddied experience.  

Depending on the activity and platform it can be anywhere from nearly instant to pedestrian when it comes to finding a group.  This is the "official" way to find a group, but it isn't as well-publicized as it should be.   I suggest trying this first and if it works for you then awesome.   If not, here are some other options. 

FTW Destiny 2 Group Finder

FTW offers another web-based tool to find a group in Destiny 2.  The FTW Destiny 2 LFG Tool offers some options that aren't available in the official group finder. 

You can filter by minimum power level, activity, class, platform, mic required or not required.    This tool is not nearly as popular as the Bungie LFG tool, but it is an excellent choice and there is no reason to avoid it.  

Discord Destiny 2 LFG

Discord began as a voice over IP product, but it has transformed into something much, much more.   Not only can you chat on Discord, but it has become a messaging, forums, information dissemination, and community tool.  It is almost indispensable if you play modern games with other players. 

The Destiny 2 PC LFG server is far more complicated to use than either of the options we have listed above, but it is also much more powerful.   There were over 1,000 people logged into this server at 11:00 AM on New Year's Eve.   Finding a group was easy once I navigated my way through the registrations, roles, region choice, etc.  

The instructions can be daunting but are worth reading.

These are three great options for your Destiny 2 LFG needs.   If you need or want people to play with then we suggest starting with the official Bungie tool and if you are so inclined jumping into the Discord Server (if you are a PC player).
