If you have hopped into Destiny 2 and stumbled upon a giant floating ball, you may be wondering what they are for. Well, they are actually security drones and they can be used to nab yourself a unique Archangels Refit sparrow. In this guide, we will go over all those Destiny 2 drone locations across all the destinations where they can be found.
These drones aren’t able to be shot and destroyed with just any weapon, though. You will need to hunt down and get the Destiny 2 Revision Zero exotic which is a part of the Season of the Seraph. But, once you have it you can work your way towards getting this sparrow.
Destiny 2 drones locations
There are a total of 50 Destiny 2 security drones which can be found across the game’s planets and hidden in side areas, caves, and in the Heist Battlegrounds, as well as in Operation Seraph Shield. They are spread out in a variety of areas with no pattern to where they are so they can be difficult to find.
The amount in each location is as follows:
- Operation Seraph’s Shield – 12 security drone locations
- Europa – 10 security drone locations
- The Moon – 10 security drone locations
- Heist Battlegrounds – 18 security drone locations
You can find an in-depth guide on each one’s location below, alongside the following video guide from ‘Esoterickk‘ of the drones available in the Operation Seraph’s Shield quest.
