Saving

Yeah, I know, I'm late to the game.

Is there any way to come back to a checkpoint later? For example in the middle of a boss battle and I've died too many times because it's past my bedtime can I quit and come back without going through the whole quest?

The only activity in the game with any kind of checkpoint system would be the raids. 

Missions are pretty much a stand-alone activity. Failing a mission won't make you have to restart a whole quest (unless the quest is just one mission), but you'll have to restart the mission from the beginning if you quit before finishing.

If you need help, there are plenty of us that can assist. Just ask!

I think that may depend on which one you are doing.  I know of a couple of missions that will allow you to exit and resume from the last checkpoint.  I use them for to complete some bounties.

When you click on the mission you should see click a for resume or x to restart.  Now with that said, I have had missions reset themselves because I haven't gone back soon enough, and there are likely some that have no checkpoints.

Is there a particular mission giving you a hard time?

Doh...I completely forgot about being able to Resume. I do have a few select missions I keep as "resume" so I can farm bounties quickly. 

So, just ignore me. I'm dumb...

Na, I initially had forgotten too, started to write the same message then remembered running the Black Garden for the minotaur test weapon days.  Its been a while since I ran test weapons for Banshee or really ran bounties like that.

I was trying to kill the Ghost of Oryx. I think. You had to Super Mario over to a platform and then kill a crapload of Taken.

I always die 87 times just jumping because I don't know how much jetpack I have available, or I just suck.

I wanted to resume back down there but I would quit out and I'd go back to the ship.

Is that the mission where there is a small hole in the wall you have to jump into after platforming?  If yes, yeh that part sucks.  Some of those missions really are tough if you are solo and at a lower light level.  I'd suggest finding someone to help you out.  We do have a pretty helpful crew around here, hopefully someone will be on when you will be that can help you take out those nasty  taken.

Anyways. So short answer is you have to start the level over for these types of missions?

To be specific, story missions generally allow you to choose to resume from a checkpoint or restart. As noted earlier, raids have checkpoints. Anything matchmade (including strikes), nightfall, and PVP are not resumable.
