Shadowkeep, the fourth expansion to Bungie's looter shooter Destiny 2, takes players back to the moon for the first time since the original Destiny. Unfortunately, the place is haunted by the shadows of long-dead Guardians calling desperately for help that players can't give, which really does nothing for the atmosphere. The silver-lining is that a few of them have left their Ghosts behind, and they are ready to be gathered up by a kind-hearted member of the living and then shattered into Phantasmal Fragments in Destiny 2.
After completing the Shadowkeep story missions in Destiny 2, players will begin to find Lost Ghost Traces among their loot. These can be traded to Eris Morn in order to begin the Ghost Quests, which are treasure hunts across the moon that unlock some interesting lore as well as Phantasmal Fragments, a rare crafting material. There are nine of these mini-missions in total, and here's how to find them all.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep - Lost Ghost Trace Locations
Echo of the Disaster
Hidden in a blind ravine in Archer's Line, this Ghost can be easy to overlook. The simplest way for players to reach it is by starting a Patrol session on the moon, which will cause them to spawn in Archer's Line, before heading to the start location for the Ether Resupply Public Event. Looking over the cliffs opposite the facility, players will see a crashed truck halfway down the rock face. The Ghost is just in front of the cab. While in Archer's Line players might also want to grab the secret NASA easter egg in Destiny 2, which is located in the Lost Sector area.
First Crota's Team Fallen
If Destiny 2's server problems are over, then players will have no trouble finding this Ghost in the Anchor of Light region, which is near the circular room where they discovered the Shard of the Traveler and defeated the Phantasm of Omnigul. The boss room is through the doorway on the left side of the picture below, and the Ghost is found through the doorway to the right.
This is another Ghost in Archer's Line, and it is located in the Hall of Wisdom on the eastern side of the region. Once they've reached the center of the halls, players should head through the large, circular door to the left and then follow the path until they reach the boss room. The Shrine is located in the very center, and the Ghost is beside it. Players can save a return trip to the Hall of Wisdom by also picking up the Necromantic Strand in Destiny 2, a key ingredient for a powerful hand-cannon, while they're in the neighborhood.
A True Believer
This Ghost is at the bottom of the Summoning Pits, which can be found underground on the northern side of the Hellmouth region. The Ghost itself is located in the room in which players fight the Phantasm of Phogoth the Untamed, on an upper ledge at the far end. There are some nasty mobs this deep below Hellmouth, so players might want to make sure they're well-equipped, perhaps with the new Destiny 2 Monte Carlo rifle if they've been lucky enough to get one.
One of the easiest to collect if a player knows where to look, this Ghost is also located in the Hellmouth region, but it is above ground. It can be found in the northern part of the region, hiding just inside the entrance to the catacombs, directly below the word Hellmouth on the map. Players can also take a moment to appreciate the moon's haunting isolation, and perhaps feel glad that Shadowkeep is barred to the hordes of players rushing to try Destiny 2's New Light, a free-to-play version of the game.
To find this Ghost, players should go to Sorrow's Harbour and then head southeast from the spawn into the Lunar Battlegrounds. From there, head past the Hive to where the old structures are, and stick to the right-hand side — the Ghost can be found in the shadow of a crashed engine. While traveling, players may want to keep a wary eye out for Shadowkeep's new champion enemies, with their Barrier, Unstoppable and Overload powers in Destiny 2.
A Futile Search
This Ghost is located in the center of the Anchor of Light region. Players should enter the large circular building that's marked on the map, and then head to the smallest room inside where the Ghost can be found on the floor. They may also want to keep an eye out for Destiny 2 Jade Rabbits, just in case.
Another Ghost found beneath the Hellmouth region, this one can be located by descending into the area known as the Circle of Bones. In the large, circular room with five broken cylinders players can find piles of bones scattered across the floor, and the one at the back-right contains the Ghost. While in the Circle of Bones, players might want to pick up the Hive skull they'll need to craft Destiny 2's Deathbringer, an Exotic Rocket Launcher.
The Greatest Sacrifice
Located in the Gatehouse area of Hellmouth, the final Ghost is also underground. It can be found by going under the Hellmouth ramp, heading down the stairs, and turning right. This will lead to a large, circular room with enemies. After dispatching them, take the exit to the right and head down to another round room with large windows — the Ghost is beside them on the far side.
