Destiny 2 Beyond Light: Where to find all the penguin collectibles

Make sure Europa is completely explored by taking advantage of our Destiny 2 Beyond Light guide on where to find the penguin collectibles.

Published

on

Along with sparkling new ice abilities and a frosty planet to explore, Europa also brings with it scattered penguins. Bungie has continued its trend of collectibles in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, and we’ll show you where to find the penguin collectibles.

Given the serious nature of the intense, action-packed, space drama that is Destiny, taking time out of your travels to find a chubby penguin just makes sense somehow. The items fits the bill in terms of the overall aesthetic of the game, but they’re not easy to acquire though.

Players familiar with previous Destiny expansion packs will already be accustomed to hunting down animal-shaped objects to add to a collection. Destiny’s Shadowkeep expansion tasked the player with finding some cool-looking rabbits, whilst Forsaken required you to search for mystical cats of all things.

Where will you find the penguin statues?

As is to be expected, our penguins can be found all over Europa, but at the moment you can only find a limited amount of them. Bungie seems to be rolling out a new penguin at weekly intervals to flesh out the content a bit and keep people on their toes.

Let’s see where the Destiny 2: Beyond Light penguin collectibles are hiding then.

First penguin – Cadmus Ridge

Our very first souvenir is located in Cadmus Ridge, tucked away in a small cave. So you’ll want to arrive at Charon’s Crossing and make your way there. You’ll then need to go upwards up and locate an icy gorge.

You’ll know you’re in the right one when you see a penguin statue in the back of the cave, and an ultra-powerful Wyvern defending it. We highly recommend your Power Level be somewhere in the region of 1200 before you enter here. Once you defeated it, go and pick up the penguin by the back wall.

Second penguin – Well of Infinitude

To start off, go to Asterion Abyss. Once here, head down the right side until you come to a path that forks. Enter the Well of Infinitude and keep going until you find yourself in a large room, with ice everywhere.

Keep searching it until you find an energy barrier/shield hidden in a corner, behind a doorway. Interact with it to lower it and claim your second prize.

Third penguin – Eventide Ruins

Statue number three is tucked away inside Eventide Ruins. For this one, you will need a Scorch Cannon to access our winter bird this time. If you need one, next to the Gravity Lift that will take you to Riis-Reborn, an enemy called Ferkis, Salvation’s Squall will appear, kill him, take the cannon.

You can find the penguin by some stairs that will normally take you to the Bunker E15 Lost Sector. But near these stairs, there’s a little alcove to their right with ice in it, use the Scorch Cannon on the ice and grab your third bird.

Where to place the statues

As an advanced space warrior you don’t really want to be seen lugging around strange penguin statues do you? So it’s best that you give them a home.

In order to do so, head back and go to the room opposite where Variks is. Head inside the room and there are different placements set out for each of the penguins to go on. A marker will indicate if you’ve found the right place.

Collecting all these will go towards accomplishing a Truimph.

How to obtain the Hawkmoon Exotic in Destiny 2: Beyond Light

One of Destiny’s most famous weapons is back, here’s how to obtain the Hawkmoon Exotic in Destiny 2: Beyond Light.

Published

on

The Hawkmoon is one of the most powerful and desired weapons in Destiny 2: Beyond Light. So we have a full guide on how you can obtain the Hawkmoon to make it yours.

Despite being announced early on in Beyond Light’s lifecycle, the Hawkmoon actually took quite a while to turn up. But the powerful weapon is very much in the game and it’s well-worth earning.

To do this, you’ll have to go through many steps to get there. But if you are able to succeed in your mission to obtain it, you’ll be rewarded with an excellent Exotic Handcannon at the end of it.

Hawkmoon Exotic Handcannon

Originally appearing as an option in the first Destiny, the Hawkmoon was a popular handcannon and fans have been asking Bungie to bring it back in Destiny 2.

Well, those prayers have been answered as it is now in Beyond Light, although you will need the Season Pass to access it.

Here’s the long road to get the Hawkmoon.

As The Crow Flies mission

Your first goal is to trigger the “As The Crow Flies” quest. To do this, you must have a conversation with Spider, and this means traveling to Tangled Shore and accepting the quest.

Finding the five feathers

The quest simply starts off by having you collect feathers. These are special paracausal feathers that light up with a yellow glow. Now for their locations.

Feather One

An easy one to start, simply head outside of Spider’s Lair and it should be sitting on a container near the exit. Collect it and return it to Spider.

Feather Two

Now it’s time to explore as you’ll need to go to the EDZ and make your way to The Sludge spawn. There is a building that gives a perfect vantage point of the entrance to the Hallowed Grove Lost Sector, head up there and you’ll find the feather resting on the ground.

Feather Three

Again, you need to travel but this time to the Cosmodrome. You’ll need to access it from The Steppes landing area. As soon as you’ve arrived here, turn around to look at a solid, concrete pillar. The feather is actually just at the top of the pillar. Simply climb up and number three is now yours.

Feather Four

For this one, you’ll need to make your way to the entrance of the Blind Well, accessed via the Dreaming City. Once you see the big gates, head to the left side of them and you’ll see the feather lying on a wall. Take it. One to go.

Feather Five

Naturally, they save the most difficult for last. For the final feather, you’ll need to make your way to the Shrine of Oryx. Go to the spawn point where you find Eris Morn. Keep going through the Moon Tunnels and arrive at the Shrine. make your way to the other side of the room and our final feather is by the stairs.

Head back to Spider’s place

Now that you’re back where it all started, take the feathers and talk with the Crow. He will now give you your next task, completing the Let Loose Thy Talons Quest.

Completing Let Loose Thy Talons & Cry From Beyond

In order to complete your main mission, you’ll also need to complete a little side mission called Cry From Beyond located in the EDZ. It’s a fairly simple quest that results in you getting part of the Hawkmoon.

Once the mission is done, head back to the Crow, talk to him, and he’ll set you on your way to the next step.

50 Orbs of Power

With the Hawkmoon effigy now in your possession, it needs power. So Crow tasks you with accumulating 50 orbs. To do this you’ll need to use Masterwork weapons and head to a good Lost Sector packed with enemies you can easily demolish. You need 50 points in total (1 point per orb) and you get one for getting a double kill with a Masterworked weapon, and another for picking up the orb you’ve created as a result.

Talk to Crow again

Return to him after you’ve successfully completed the orb task and he’ll give you yet-another objective.

EDZ & Crow

Now it’s time for the Crow to take you on a tour of his home, during which you’ll be collecting more feathers. Don’t worry though as these aren’t hidden and are basically gift-wrapped for you to claim. Keep going and defeat the boss at the end of your adventure, then speak to Crow again.

Defeat Champions or Guardians

Comfortably the most time-consuming and difficult task of them all. It’s entirely up to you which route you choose to go down, but in any event, one of them will need to be done. Once you’ve killed a certain amount of these and fulfilled the requirements, it’s now time to retrieve your prize…kind of.

Finishing the Hawkmoon

Once more, head to The Sludge in the EDZ and you’ll need to do a couple of small tasks and collect some more feathers. When that’s done, you will have one final boss to vanquish. Do that and the Hawkmoon will finally be yours to keep forever.

As we said, it’s not the easiest Exotic Weapon in the world to acquire, but it’s a rare Exotic for a reason. Follow our guide, have some patience, and the Hawkmoon handcannon will be yours.

Bungie announce Destiny 2 crossplay coming in 2021

Bungie released a Developer Update blog, announcing plans for Destiny 2 in 2021. One of the most noteworthy points includes the addition of crossplay.

Published

on

Crossplay has only been expanding over the past couple of years. Today, Bungie announced that Destiny 2 would be receiving this feature in 2021.

A few years ago, no one thought it would be possible for Xbox, PC, PlayStation, and Switch fans to play with and against one another in a given video game.

Games like Fortnite, Rocket League, and Call of Duty opened the door to this reality, and more developers are getting in on the newly-united platforms by bringing crossplay to their games.

Destiny players have long been asking for crossplay. The feature always seemed inevitable with the cross-save feature, but it hadn’t been fully realized – until now.

On December 8, Bungie released a Developer Update blog that went into the team’s plans for the upcoming year.

Assistant Game Director, Joe Blackburn, covered a ton of gear, Power, and gameplay features and updates coming to Destiny in the future.

Hardcore Destiny players will want to read the whole blog post. There’s a lot of exciting content on the horizon. More casual players scrolled down to see what might be the most interesting new feature covered with one bullet point: “Crossplay is coming in 2021.”

This was the only mention of crossplay within the whole blog post, so it’s safe to assume that it won’t be included in Destiny 2 for some time.

Cross-save is already a feature, however, which was a hurdle that other developers – such as Respawn with Apex Legends – had to clear.

Beyond Light was a massive update to Destiny 2, and it doesn’t seem like Bungie are slowing down anytime soon. We’re excited to break the barriers of platforms and see what else 2021 has in store for this game.
