  1. When it says the main campaign, what mission numbers count as the main campaign? I’m through mission 19 but I wasn’t sure if I needed to get through 20 or not first

    1. You’ll need to continue on past mission 19 to get to the legendaries. There are missions tied to each of the legendaries that should become available after you have completed the mission “The Researcher of Myths“.
