Destiny: the Sleeper Simulant quest

First off, you may be wondering what’s the Sleeper Simulant… It’s a powerful 290 Exotic Fusion Rifle that goes into your Guardian’s Heavy Weapon slot. I just got mine last night and am enjoying the heck out of it.

Once you complete the The First Firewall quest, you’ll receive the Curious Transceiver. Continue reading Destiny: the Sleeper Simulant quest

Destiny Dead Ghosts

Finding and reviving Dead Ghosts as you venture in the Destiny Universe,  will unlock Grimoire cards that add to your Grimoire points. The Grimoire cards each hold a snippet of lore relating to the Destiny universe that can be read over at Bungie.net or on the free companion app. When you collect all 50 of them, you’ll unlock the Ghost Hunter Trophy / Achievement.

Ghosts in the Tower

  1. In the Tower, go up the stairs to the second level on Tower North. There’s a small passage with lights and crates near the overlook. The ghost is on top on the crates along the wall.
  2. Travel down the path to Tower North. Exiting out of the passage, look to your left down the steps for a bridge leading to another tower. Go to the area the Speaker is in, to your left is the ghost in the library nook.
  3. From the spawn point, go down the stairs straight ahead to reach the Hall of Guardians. Enter the large room at the end of the hall with the table, and swing right as you pass through the arch. There’s a corner with a desk and some crates. The ghost is on the desk. (This ghost was moved in 2.0 but should still be in the same area.)
  4. Inside the Tower, go through the massive doors that only opens during an Iron Banner event, up the stairs and straight forward from the spawn. When they do open, search along the balcony railings on the right side to find the ghost.
