Destiny 2 is an incredible game that is bursting to the seams with loots, aliens and secrets. And similar to The Dreaming City version, the Shadowkeep expansion of the game has several new places to discover and activities to complete. These include attractions like the Nightmare Hunts and the Alters of Sorrow.
As you travel around Shadowkeep’s moon completing activities, you’ll earn numerous chests filled with consumable items called Lost Ghost Trace. With this item, you will have the ability to unlock a series of Ghost bounties from Eris Morn.
With the clues in these bounties’ descriptions, you will be able to locate the Dead Ghosts of Fallen Guardians. Each of these ghosts has a history with the Great Disaster: an event that made thousands of Guardians fall to the Hive god Crota. With every dead ghost you find, you will unlock a Lore Triumph that narrates the true tale of what befell the Guardians that died on the moon.
To finish this game, you will have to locate at least eight dead Ghosts. That is to say, you will need to get at least eight Lost Ghost Trace. Each Lost Ghost Trace you get will unlock a quest you can use to locate a ghost in a particular location on the moon.
What’s more? You will earn Phantasmal Fragments and a new lore book along the way.
How to Get Lost Ghost Traces
Lost Ghost Traces are random drops from the activities you complete on Shadowkeep’s moon. They are consumables that start spawning when you complete the main story. These items are essential as they help you to see the dead ghost quests Eris Morn offers you.
You can acquire them through several means, such as doing public events, opening chests, and killing high value targets. You can also get them by completing Nightmare Hunts and Scarlet Keep Strike, among others.
Where to Find Dead Ghosts
The following is a list of some dead Ghosts, their general locations, and the exact places you can find them. These Ghosts give off a glow and this makes it easy for you to track them down. So, watch out for it.
Echo of the Great Disaster: Archer’s Line
Arrive at Sanctuary and turn left toward Archer’s Line. You will see a path, stay with it. Follow it until you approach a jump. Stop there and turn right so that you are directly facing a large opening in the ground. A little to your right, you will see a lower ledge, jump there and move forward. You will come across another lower ledge with wreckages. Search the vicinity for the dead ghost you are looking for.
First Crota Team’s Fallen: World’s Grave
Go to Anchor of Light and head towards its eastern section. On your way, keep an eye out for a trail between lunar colony buildings that ends up at a winding canyon road. When you find this trail, follow it until you get to the road. Then, proceed on the road till you get to the Temple of Crota.
Enter this temple; work your way down across a number of Hive seeders until you get to a big room. Inside this room, you will encounter a final Hive seeder and several enemies. You’ll also see a door with green light shining from behind it. Defeat these enemies and go through the door.
Follow the path behind until you get to the World’s Grave. Enter the first room that leads into a rocky hallway and keep moving until you come to the second level where you’ll find another door.
Follow this door and keep moving until you enter a room with a big round platform. Here, you will find a big door to the right which leads to an orange-lit room. Enter and head up the stairs. Then, branch left to arrive at an open door. This is your destination.
Enter and search the left corner of the room beyond to locate the ghost.
Adonna’s Quest: Shrine of Oryx
You can get to the Shrine of Oryx through Archer’s Line.
When you arrive at Sanctuary, proceed to Archer’s Line, then head up the hill on the right side toward the dome building. Go through this building and follow the trail that leads into the Hive structure. Drop down until you get to the Hall of Wisdom. From there, proceed to the round room with large orange crystals, then branch left and enter through the door.
Here, you will encounter a huge round entrance with power cables going into it. Enter the hallway and follow it to its end, then go along the curving path that veers around the edge of the shrine. This will bring you to a large room with a big structure and a doorway in its center. Enter this doorway.
You will find the dead ghost on the ground in the center of the structure.
Misplaced Trust: Hellmouth
To get to Hellmouth, head out from Sanctuary and take the path to your right. Then, head straight beyond Anchor of Light. Eventually, you will arrive at Hellmouth. An alternative route involves setting out at Sorrow’s Harbor. Then, take the exit you will find close to the landing zone.
When you arrive at Hellmouth, go around its end to the northern part of the area. Here, you will find an entrance to the Hive structure. As you’ll later see, this path also leads to the Circle of Bones, the Summoning Pits, and the Gatehouse, among others.
Once inside the Hive structure, you’ll find descending stairs and some Hive enemies to the left. Deal with them. Then, proceed to the bottom of the stairs and go to the edge of the platform ahead of you. Once you arrive, turn around and look up the stairs there. You will find the dead ghost lodged behind the wall at the bottom of the stairs.
The Greatest Sacrifice: Gatehouse
To get to the Gatehouse, you will have to travel through Hellmouth. In the northern part of this section, you’ll see a structure with a hole to the side at the top. Enter this hole and head down the stairs. Follow the path here and it will lead you the Gatehouse.
When you are inside, go down through the halls. You will come to a door on your right. Go through it and keep moving until you come to a round room with enemies and a Barrier Knight. If, instead of this round room, you arrive at the Circle of Bones or a location with a gap you can jump across, turn back. This is because by coming across either of these places, you would have gone too far.
Search the right side of the room close to where you entered. You will find a grated wall permeated by white light. The ghost you are looking for lies on the ground right in front of the grate. The white light will make this hard to identify, so search carefully.
Together Forever: Circle of Bones
Proceed to the Gatehouse via Hellmouth as described above, then branch right and go through the rooms and tunnels you encounter. Descend through this area until you approach a location where platforms hang over a huge chasm.
When you arrive, jump to the left. Then, proceed through the next set of tunnels until you reach the Circle of Bones.
When you get to the Circle of Bones, you will see numerous paths that extend to the left and right. You’ll also see a big round room ahead of you filled with many enemies and a wizard. Progress until you remove the Hive in the room.
Finally, search around the pillar on the east end of the room to locate the ghost.
A True Believer: Summoning Pits
When you enter the Circle of Bones, find the path that branches to the left and follow it. You will find a door, follow it into the hallway beyond.
Proceed to the end of this hallway. Here, you will find a closed door that leads into the Summoning Pits. Once you are inside the pit, branch 45 degrees to your right. Then, locate a long, thin platform that travels along the room’s edge.
You’ll find the dead ghost sitting on this platform.
Dark Dreams: Lunar Battlegrounds
You can get to the Lunar Battlegrounds by traveling southeast from Sorrow’s Harbor; this will lead you across a bridge. Go on your way and across the Hive fortifications in the next section until you get to a road on the other side of the small canyon. Eventually, you will arrive at the Lunar Battlegrounds.
When you arrive here, branch right and travel along the right side of the area. Keep an eye out for the downed orange of a spacecraft that has a crater beside it. When you locate this area, search it. Focus especially on the area behind the spacecraft. You will find the ghost in this vicinity.
A Futile Search: Anchor of Light
To get to the Anchor of Light, spawn at Sanctuary. Then jump on your sparrow and follow the trail on your right. When you arrive at the Anchor of Light, look out for the disc-shaped structure in the area. Enter this structure through one of its many doors and locate a small room off the big round room. You’ll find the dead ghost in the small room. You do not even have to strain your eyes as they are easy to spot.
And that is how to locate the dead ghosts you need to complete Destiny 2 Shadowkeep.
