Corsair Down & Badge are new items in Destiny 2 Forsaken. Corsair Down is a random drop you can get at any point while doing patrol in the Dreaming City. A lot of players have no clue how to use it, or what its purpose is. The truth is, it’s like a locator – it will help you track down dead soldiers from the Queen’s guard. This guide will show you how to use Corsair Down in Destiny 2 Forsaken.
How to use Corsair Down?
After you get Corsair Down from an enemy, open up your inventory and take a look at the description. It will tell you it’s actually a field communication device that’s sending out an SOS with a repeating message attached. The message will contain a hint that should help you locate the person sending out the signal. There are a bunch of different message, which means they appear in various places.
When you’ve tracked down the person, you’ll realize you’re too late. Interact with the dead body, and a boss will spawn. Once you’ve defeated it, you’ll get the Corsair Badge. There are several areas where the bodies spawn, but they can spawn at different places inside those areas.
If the Corsair Down says it’s repeating something about a garden, you need to head to the Gardens of Esila, south of The Strand. We found ours near the passage that leads from The Strand, in the circular plaza with the obelisk.
If the transmissions is repeating something about a bay, you’ll want to go to the Bay of Drowned Wishes. It’s a lost sector in the Divalian Mists, and the entrance is just behind the landing zone. For us, it spawned behind the big, round rock at the beginning of the sector.
How to use Corsair Badge?
The Corsair Badge is like a pair od dog-tags – it contains identifiable information about the owner. When you get one by defeating the boss that spawns when you interact with the dead soldier, take it to a Queen’s Guard camp – there’s one near the giant gate in Divalian Mists. It’s in the cave with the white banners. Talk to any of the NPCs there, and they’ll thank you for letting them know their comrade died. You’ll also get a reward, but it’s nothing to write home about.
