Commander Zavala (Lance Reddick) was playing Destiny 2 the night before he died

The late actor Lance Reddick may be well known for playing Destiny 2 in his own time, but few may have realized just how active he really was.

Following Reddick’s passing on March 17, 2023, Reddit user TechSwag made a post on the Destiny 2 Subreddit detailing how often the actor played the game. After viewing some of the videos that he had posted on his Twitter account, he noticed that Reddick’s account name was visible and ran through Bungie’s official website.


This revealed that Reddick had put over 1,400 hours into Destiny 2 and had completed all but one of Lightfall’s quests that he was playing on the night of his passing. He’s also played a fair amount of primary Titan over the past 18 months despite being better known in the community for regularly using a primary Warlock.

Most of the Subreddit has reacted with surprise and admiration upon learning this information. Some have even backed up the reveal with stories of Reddick joining a wide variety of gamers online as he played and spoke of his love for the franchise.

The news comes amid an outpouring of grief and love for the actor following his unexpected passing at the age of 60. Players even gathered for memorials held in Reddick’s honor, where they gathered around Commander Zavala, the character he voiced, for massive moments of silence. Other memorials are being planned and celebrated over the weekend, and are likely to persist for the next few days or weeks.
