What Does KWTD Mean in Destiny 2?

There are two main ways you can find a group in Destiny 2. The first is Bungie’s Fireteam Finder Forum, where players can link their accounts and create posts to let other players join their Fireteams in the game in preparation for any activity.

The second is the Destiny 2 LFG Discord. This is by far the most popular way that players use to get together. Find out more in our How to Join and Leave a Fireteam guide.

Both methods of finding a Fireteam are a great way for newer players to find experienced players who will happily teach them any content that they haven’t completed yet, including Raids, Dungeons, Exotic Missions, and even Campaign Missions.

You’ll find some of the most helpful players across any gaming community here in Destiny 2.

Regardless of what method you use to find a group, there is one phrase that you will see pop up time and time again, KWTD.

This phrase means “know what to do” and refers to the players of the group, as well as anyone looking to join the group, understanding the mechanics, best weapons to use, and general flow of the planned activity.

It is often used when players are looking for a Fireteam that has already completed the activity they wish to play, though reading a guide or watching a video on an activity you haven’t completed yet is definitely a plus.

There are plenty of veteran players who have completed just about everything there is to complete in Destiny 2 or players who only have a limited amount of time to play the game each day.

These players will hop on the game every week to run Raids, Nightfalls, and Dungeons for quick end-game rewards. Solo players will want to find a group of experienced players.

If they don’t have time to teach new players and just want to complete the activity as fast as possible, then they will add the phrase KWTD to their LFG post.

This is both to let new players know that this LFG post is not for them while showing experienced players that this group should be able to complete their activity with no issues in regard to understanding the mechanics or best strategies used in the encounters.

If you see an LFG post that doesn’t include the phrase KWTD, then chances are that this group is willing to take on newer players and help them out, though it is still a good idea to let the Fireteam leader know if you haven’t completed the activity yet.

Many players will even explicitly state that they are willing to teach in their LFG posts. These players are known as Sherpas and have most likely helped hundreds of New Lights through the various activities in Destiny 2.

Now you know what to do when you see the phrase KWTD!
