The Red War: Destiny 2 Story explained

The red war introduces new conflicts with Cabal. The last city is invaded by the new army led by villian Dominus Ghaul. The guardians work on evacuations of civilians and meanwhile Ghaul attacks the Traveler. The ghost of the player stay in the green surroundings as there is no place to go. Guardians start to scatter and die across the solar system. The Ghaul starts torturing Treveler.

Fortunately,  while wandering in the woods they find a vision of Traveler that helps them to reach the Shard. Now teaching the Shard you find the light and when you touch the light it glows even brighter. This indicates that you are the only guardian left behind who can save the day. In short, the players reconnect to the guardian leaders and thus decide to take revenge. Ghaul has some sort of power called Almighty that is a weapon and can destroy the solar system. The player gets the mission to shut the weapon down. It gives the ability to the guardians to attack the city. With several difficulties on their path, players still defeat Ghaul and the Traveler wakes up. After the blast of Ghaul, the light is returned to the solar system.
