This paper describes some situations when random walks (or related processes) of linear rate of escape converge in direction in various senses. We discuss random walks on isometry groups of fairly general metric spaces, and more specifically, random walks on isometry groups of nonpositive curvature, isometry groups of reflexive Banach spaces, and linear groups preserving a proper cone. We give an alternative proof of the main tool from subadditive ergodic theory and we make a conjecture in this context involving Busemann functions.
