How to Activate Cross Save in Destiny 2

If you want to play Destiny 2 on multiple, cross save is an essential bit of functionality. Here's how to set it up.

Activating cross save in Destiny 2 is a great way to keep your progress across multiple platforms and ensure you never miss out on any of the game’s exciting content. With cross save, you can link up to three gaming consoles or PC accounts with one Bungie Account, allowing you to quickly transfer your characters and gear from one platform to another.

This means you can play as your Guardian on PC and easily play the same Guardian pick-up from where you left off on the console without losing any progress. But how do we activate cross save? Below is a guide on how to do so in Destiny 2.

How Does Cross Save Work in Destiny 2?

You can link up all platforms you use to play Destiny 2 to your Bungie.net account, and you get to choose one group of Guardians whose progress will carry over to all of them. However, you cannot merge characters or gear between different platforms, nor can purchased expansions or Silver be moved across.

Before engaging in cross save for Destiny 2, ensure that you are prepared with all the correct login credentials on each platform to avoid any issues. Once enabled, be aware that this is a 3-month commitment, and disabling it within that period can result in not being able to reactivate it until after the said time has elapsed.
