How to Locate All Security Drones in Destiny 2

What do these yellow things do?

by Amitesh Dhar

The security drones are a part of a secret mission in Destiny 2. We won’t reveal what the reward is, but it’s something that most of you will love.

It’s been a while since Bungie included secrets in the game. Season of the Seraph was already being hailed as a very good season. With the addition of this secret, it’s likely that the community will hail this as the best season that we’ve seen in a while.

There are a total of 50 security drones that you will have to find and destroy in Destiny 2. So where do you find these drones, and how do you destroy them?

Where to find Security Drones in Destiny 2?

Before we go on to talk about drones, let’s talk about how to destroy them. These drones are tied to the Revision Zero Exotic. So it’s evident that you will have to use the Revision Zero Exotic pulse rifle to destroy these drones. This is quite similar to the Salvation’s Grip Exotic grenade launcher. This went live back during the Beyond Light expansion. That said, here are all the security drone locations. We’ll divide them on the basis of the location they’re located in.

Moreover, 12 of these drones are found in the Seraph Complex and the only way to access this is by playing the Seraph Shield mission. To access these drones, you will have to acquire the Security Clearance upgrade from the Exo Frame Seasonal Vendor. You will also need the Tactical Armorer upgrade to avoid some of the lasers in this mission, but that can be avoided using a sword with the Eager Edge perk. The rooms with a small star icon above a panel are the ones containing these drones. So make sure you open all of them.

There’s just one drone that isn’t behind a locked room. In the room before the microwave trap, you’ll find this drone under the staircase behind a glass panel. You will have to get an angle to be able to shoot it properly. While these 12 are quite easy to find, here are the rest which are slightly harder to locate.


There are 10 drones in this area, and that doesn’t include the ones in the Heist Batteground mission. The mission on Europa contains six drones. Here’s where you can find them:

  • Europa-1
