How to escape the Vanguard Vault in Destiny 2 Zero Hour

The Vanguard sure kept this one quiet.

We were all excited about meeting TR3-VR in Zero Hour, but I don’t think anyone expected the next area to be so difficult. Here’s how to escape the Vanguard Vault in Zero Hour Destiny 2.

There are two parts to the Vanguard Vault. There’s a dark area with a map on the wall (pictured above). Memorize what you see as best you can. I’ve completed this mission a couple of times, and the map seems to stay the same. This gives you information on how to pass the area right after leaving the Vanguard Vault.

Once you’re done exploring, head to these pipes on the wall (pictured above) and step on the gray tiles on the ground. Look for the diamond symbol on the wall to the right of the pipes. The floor acts like a pressure plate, and the wall with the pipes will open.

The door will shut behind you when you enter the vault, and a large empty room stands before you. Remember that maze picture on the wall? That image shows the safe way across the room. You instantly die if you walk on the wrong panels or try to jump across.

I’ve experimented with Grapple Grenades and an Eager Edge Sword, but you need to traverse the room the intended way

Unfortunately, you can’t return to check the map, so I’ve drawn the route in the image above. As long as you step on the panels shown, you should be fine. Keep in mind, if you’re playing with friends, you’ll kill everyone in the room if you mess up. 

You’re ready to face the final boss once you’ve successfully traversed the kill room. If you have 10 minutes to spare at this point, you should comfortably complete the mission with a full fire team.

If you survived against TR3-VR by the skin of your teeth, keep in mind there’s a fancy Triumph up for grabs if you escape without dying.
