The first Ghost Story in the new area is called Pressure. You’ll find it the High Planes. Land at Thieves’ Landing, then head east into Four-Horn Gulch. Go south, through the tunnel and past the tents. Turn right and look for a cave whose entrance is surrounded by stones with holes. Go inside and look at the ground by the pillar in the middle. The second one is called Ghost Hunter, and it’s in the Shipyard AWO-43 lost sector. You’ll find the entrance in a valley in the northeast of the Jetsam of Saturn. As you pass the hole in the wall that overlooks the shipyard, you’ll turn and see a makeshift bridge crossing a gap. The ghost will be on the right, on a ledge.

Then there’s The We Before Us. You’ll find it in the Hall of The Exalted, a Fallen lair in the northeastern corner of the Jetsam of Saturn. Once you’re inside, look for a large staircase that leads to a balcony overlooking the boss room. The path to the boss room will be to the right. Look for the ghost on a ledge above the debris on the left. After that, you can look for To Map The Unknown. This one’s pretty easy. It’s hidden in the lair of Spider, the local vendor. Once you’re in front of him, look to the left. You’ll see a tiny room there, alight with a blue glow. Go there and look on top of the crate.

The fifth one is called Whether Windmills or Cranes. It’s in the Kingship Dock lost sector, east of Sorik’s Cut. When you enter the dock, head to the right part of the terrace. Look over the edge, and you’ll see a metal platform. Jump on it, and interact with the ghost. The next one is called Batteries Not Included, and you’ll find it in the Cobble, the winding area in the northeast of the map. When you reach the platform with the giant machine, look for a floating rock under it. Jump onto the rock to find the ghost.

The last piece of Ghost Story is the one called Who Guards The Guardians. It is hidden deep within the Wolfship Turbine lost sector. You need to go all the way to the boss chamber, the one with the canisters. When you climb the stairs into the arena, look for a small area alight with yellow crystals on the left. The ghost will be next to it. There’s also one ghost you can only get during the Machinist mission, called The Chosen’s Choice. It’s in Salvage Zone QX, the area where you end up once you get the tank. It’s on the crane in the yard, the one in front of the console that you need to use to open the door. If you miss it during the main story, you’ll have to wait for Ikora to offer you to repead the mission as a meditation, as it’s not normally accessible.

EDZ Ghost Story Locations

The first one we’ve found in EDZ was Compliments. You’ll find it in the Drain, a lost sector in the Outskirts area. Go inside and head towards where Wanted: Metal Captain appears. When you enter the room, go right. You’ll see a giant 2 on the wall, and a room to the right from it. Go into the room and look for the ghost behind the bars. The second one is called No Rez For The Weary, and it’s hidden away in the Quarry lost sector, in the Sunken Isles area. Enter the cave below the spaceship and follow the tunnels until you pass a room with three Legionaries and some broken containers. Immediately after you crawl through the small tunnel, turn left. You’ll find the ghost next to the blue lantern.

The third one is called Don’t Call Me Ghost. You’ll find it in the sludge, in Shaft 13, the lost sector south of the landing spot. As you pass the Salzwerk Trostland sign and enter the mines, look to the right. Jump up onto the conveyor belt and enter the small room at the end of it. Turn right and you’ll see a locker. Approach it, and you’ll find your ghost inside.

Titan Dead Ghost Locations

The first ghost on Titan is called Confession of Hope – Part One. You’ll find it all the way to the east, in the Arboretum. Go to the Solarium, and follow the path thorough the door on the left in the plaza. Once you reach a giant pink screen with the words “our home”, turn around. You’ll see a jammed door that’s slightly ajar. Approach it and you’ll spot the ghost, tangled in the vines.

The second one, The Watchful Eye, is at Siren’s Watch. It’s hidden in a hive lair in the southeast of the platform. Once you climb the second set of stairs, you’ll see three round holes in the wall. The ghost will be in the middle one. The third one is called Into the Fray, and you’ll find it at the Rig. It’s in a lost sector called DS Quarters-2, directly east of the landing spot. When you reach the lost sector cache, turn left into the hallway. You’ll see the ghost glinting on shelf.

Nessus Ghost Story Locations

There are three dead ghosts on Nessus, and the first one is called A Hero’s Requiem. You’ll find it in The Rift, the lost sector in a cave next to the crashed spaceship in Exodus Black. Follow the tunnels until you reach the blue chamber with the chasm. Look up and to the left, and you’ll spot a particular stone ledge. Go up there and you’ll find your collectible.

The next one is found a bit north, in the Watcher’s Grave. To collect the Struck by Wonder dead ghost, you’ll need to reach the outer ring platform of a giant light beam in the area. From the Watcher’s Grave landing zone, turn left and go deeper into the area. As you get close to this giant beam of light, look to your left, there are some higher platforms. Use them to reach the even higher ones on the wall, next to the beam of light. The first platform on the wall is covered in dark grass, and is hard to miss. From there make your way up, until you can spot the small platform in the distance. This is the one that is closest to the light beam, exactly where the dead ghost is located.

The final ghost is west from the previous one, in the Tangled Forest area. From the Artifact’s Edge landing zone, head west into the Tangle. Follow the road to your left, and after around 40 seconds, you’ll reach a part of the road that goes up. Stop at the top of this incline, look back, and on your left you’ll spot a giant tree with a red bough. It’s similar to the others, but this one is at the end of the ascending path. Jump on the platform that is somewhat hidden by tree’s trunk. This is where the final Nessus dead ghost, Confession of Hope – Part Two, is found, among the small red foliage.

Note: We would like to thank user Joshua Coleman and EKS_Konoko for the additional information.

The first ghost is called Difference of Opinion. You’ll find it in the Sanctum of Bones, the lost sector near the landing spot in Rupture. Go inside and climb the spire. When you’re at the top, look for the ghost on one of the yellow rock pillars. The next one is called Protector of Ghosts, and it’s hiding at the entrance to Terrabase Charon, north of Giant’s Scar. There’s a catwalk hanging from the ceiling at the entrance, with some crates on it. Jump up there, and you’ll find the ghost on a yellow crate.

The last one, Ghost Community Theater Presents, is in the Aphix Conduit lost sector, in the southeastern corner of Rupture. Once you’re in the cave, follow it to the cache. When you reach the chest, turn around, and you’ll see three pillars. Climb the tallest one, and look above the big round hole. You’ll see the ghost on the ledge.

Mercury Dead Ghost Locations

There’s only one ghost on Mercury, and it’s called From Fallen Ground. It’s in the Pariah’s Refuge lost sector, in the Field of Glass. Follow the corridors until you reach a large open room with huge braziers. Look to the left, and you’ll see tall bookshelves with ladders and lanterns. The ghost is on the top of one of them.

Mars Ghost Stories

The first one on Mars is called Savin. It’s hidden at Braytech Futurescapes, in the Core Terminus lost sector. Go all the way to the cache, then look behind it to the right. You’ll see a bunch of computer equipment on the wall, and the ghost will be on a keyboard there. The other one is called Pulled Pork, and it’s in Hellas View. You’ll need to go all the way to the north, to the room overlooking the glacial cave. You’ll see a large yellow machine on your left as you enter. The ghost will be behind the pillar.

    This just happens to be my favorite part about the new Forsaken update in Destiny 2. The lore of Destiny is extremely interesting for me. I especially love that I can now learn about how a Guardians Ghost perceives the world. A Guardians Ghost is a big mystery… How did they come into existence? How does it feel to be a spirit living in a small pyramid like shell? Where do they go when they disappear? I really like collecting and reading all of the different Destiny 2 lore books, but it is the Ghost Stories that I enjoy the most!
