Destiny 2 Radiant Seeds Locations - Black Armory Quest

Radiant seeds are one of the new items in Destiny 2. If you’re playing the Black Armory quest, you’ll have to collect 25 of them at some point, in order to power up the first weapon from Ada-1. The description tells you the only way to get them, but it will take a lot of time if you let it happen on its own. Instead, you need a good method to find them fast, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in our Destiny 2 radiant seeds locations guide.

Where to find radiant seeds in Destiny 2?

If you take a look at the quest step description, you’ll see that radiant seeds will sometimes drop from powerful enemies. This means high value targets, bosses and any kind of enemy with a yellow health bar. Since you need twenty five of them, going about, doing public events, missions or raids would be too slow. Thankfully, there’s a way to get them quickly.

The best way to go about this would be to go to Mars and jump into the Escalation Protocol activity. This one’s filled to the brim with powerful enemies, and even if you’re going in solo, you should be able to clear the first two waves. Not every powerful enemy drops a radiant seed, but EP has so many of them that we managed to get the whole 25 in only two tries (playing through the first two waves only).

Of course, if you have a team of people, you can speed it up considerably. In that case, you chould also nip over to the Dreaming City and try your luck in the Blind Well. That one also has plenty of yellow enemies, but you can’t really do it on your own. Once you’ve got the bunch, go speak to Ada for the next step.

    What if the radiant matrix didn’t drop when you collected the radiant seeds? My boy is doing the sniper quest line. He collected radiant seeds in the blind well. It says to return to Ada but her window has “0/1” listed for the radiant matrix. Should he just keep farming powerful enemies? He’s tried some lost sectors but it isn’t dropping.

      Just go to the lost sector in the area to the right of the landing zone in dreaming city and kill the boss there. It drops 10 seeds every time. Clear, rinse, repeat, and you’ll be done in 2 cycles. The radiant matrix is generated in your inventory once you have enough seeds.
