Does Destiny 2 Legend Heist Battlegrounds Have Matchmaking?

As Season of the Seraph progresses in Destiny 2, there is now a Legend version of Heist Battlegrounds, a set of missions in which Guardians infiltrate Warmind bunkers and reclaim pieces of Rasputin’s code. Unlike the base versions, these higher-difficulty versions are not usually matchmade. Heist Battlegrounds appeared to mark a change, with the activity mentioning matchmaking when selected in the H.E.L.M.Legend Heist Battlegrounds MatchmakingHowever, this appears to be a mistake — matchmaking is not enabled in Legend Heist Battlegrounds. As in previous seasons, you will have to find your own team. We’re all aware of how disappointing it is. It also begs the question of why the developer refuses to implement matchmaking for the game’s harder missions.

You could argue that matchmaking for Raids and even Dungeons would be challenging given that these activities demand teamwork from players in order to advance through time-sensitive puzzles. But the main source of difficulty in seasonal activities is simply the presence of powerful and numerous adversaries. If locked loadouts are the problem, making it challenging to defeat Champions, Bungie could simply mandate that every player have the necessary mods equipped in order to matchmake into the activity.

Yes, you can find a fireteam using the official Destiny 2 app, but if you can do that, why not just make these activities matchmade in the game itself? Legend Heist Battlegrounds’ lack of matchmaking is unfortunate, and hopefully this is something Bungie will address in the future.
