Our essential guide to completing the Thief of Thieves mission in Destiny 2.
Our Destiny 2: Thief of Thieves walkthrough guide explains how to recover tools from Fallen supply thieves, find the Fallen cache, recover the transmat beacon and transmat the cache.
This adventure sees you taking back what’s yours – by stealing it off the Fallen. At first it’s a wild goose chase but slowly morphs into a test of survival. All in all it’s not too challenging until you arrive at the final section where waves of enemies will be coming at you in an enclosed space. That’s why we’ve put together a guide which’ll help you through the toughest parts and ensure you emerge victorious at the end.

Recover tools from Fallen supply thieves and find the Fallen cache
When you start off you won’t be given an objective marker to follow. Instead you’ll have to seek out Fallen targets for yourself and eliminate them. Explore the area and pay attention to the mini-map, looking out for flashes of red to indicate that enemies lurk nearby.
Ignore normal Vandals, Dregs and Shanks. Instead, keep an eye out for enemies named “Supply Thief” as they’ll drop the repair tools you need.
Once you’ve picked up 5, it’s time to find the Fallen Cache.
Follow the marker on your mini-map into a tunnel and through into the Sinking Docks. Take out the Fallen, drop the stairs and onto a bright red rig. Go about clearing the area of scan the cache once you’ve done so.
Recover the transmat beacon and transmat the cache
Once you’ve scanned the cache, follow the marker through the opening on the left and into the Hive infested underbelly of the rig. Eventually you’ll come across a Supply Thief who’ll run away when you approach. Follow them, swing right and take them out with a few choice melee swings.
Continue on through the room, turn left, hop over the broken bridge and chase the next Supply Thief. It’ll run into an area filled with Fallen Shanks and Vandals, so don’t get too carried away.
We recommend sitting back at the entrance and taking care of the Shanks first, before moving onto the Vandals. Chuck some grenades in for good measure, get out a close range weapon and lay into the Supply Thief.
Once you’ve retrieved Sloane’s Transmat Beacon from its corpse, follow the marker back up and around to the cache you were at before.
Place the beacon on the ground and prepare to hold out against waves of enemies. Again, we’d recommend equipping a bunch of close range weapons if possible: SMGs, Auto Rifles, Sidearms, Swords and Shotguns will work a treat.
Stay near the cache and focus down enemies as quickly as you can, using the barrels for cover and occasionally retreating if you’re being overwhelmed. Right at the end you’ll have a sub-boss to contend with, so pop your Super or hit them with grenades and follow up with some power weapon shots to the noggin.
Once you’ve hit 100%, that’s the adventure complete!
