How to access Terminal Overload and complete it?

Destiny 2 - Terminal Overload activity in Neomuna
Terminal Overload location in Neomuna

The Terminal Overload is a 1-6 player activity in Neomuna, but the specific location cycles between 3 possible spots. After completing the Lightfall campaign, you can easily find where the day’s Terminal Overload is on the map. However, you can sometimes encounter an activity already in progress.

Recommended power for the activity is 1810, which is the pinnacle cap. If your power level is lower, probably, you can still complete it with a group, but raising your power level before accessing it is suggested. Otherwise, you may have difficulty surviving it because it is challenging.

To unlock the Terminal Overload public activity, you must first complete the campaign and “Welcome to the Hall of Heroes” quest. After you start the “Stargazer” quest, you should be able to participate in those public events and start collecting new Lightfall weapons, including the Basso Ostinato shotgun.
