Should you play the Normal or Legendary difficulty campaign in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen

The choice is yours!

Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is the biggest expansion the game has ever seen, with tons of new content, reworked systems, and a whole new area. With everything that's new, Bungie wanted to provide players with both a familiar campaign experience and a more difficult one. Here is which campaign difficulty you should play on.

Upon beginning The Witch Queen, players will be given a choice. The choice is to play the game on Normal or Legendary difficulty. The Normal difficulty is described as the best experience for most Destiny players, while the Legendary difficulty is described as extremely difficult, and players should come well equipped.

With that being said, we recommend that most players start The Witch Queen on Normal Difficulty. This will help alleviate some of the stress that comes with an all-new expansion. This will also help to counter burnout. Players will have tons of content to get through and things to do even after beating The Witch Queen campaign. You don't want to spend all of your energy just on the campaign.

The Legendary difficulty is an awesome addition to the game, but we would not recommend it for a first playthrough. The rewards are better and more plentiful, but they won't come without sacrifice. Suppose you are choosing to run the campaign on the Legendary difficulty. In that case, we recommend you bring with you a fully equipped Fireteam that is capable of coordinating with one another well.

So there you have it, we recommend playing on the Normal difficulty for The Witch queen campaign. Luckily, regardless of which difficulty you choose, players will be able to replay campaign missions on either difficulty.
