Destiny 2 Wanted Bounties have been introduced in the Forsaken expansion, tasking players with hunting down escaped prisoners from the Prison of Elders.

These involve you exploring Lost Sectors, patrol spaces and even Adventures in order to complete them, resulting in Legendary and Powerful Gear rewards - and even the chance to collect Lord of Wolves Exotic.

On this page are Wanted Bounty locations for the weekly reset between October 2nd and October 9th:

How Wanted Bounties in Destiny 2 work

Wanted Bounties are Pursuits you can collect from Spider, the vendor of The Tangled Shore.

First, they must be purchased with Ghost Fragments; some are a single Fragment, while others cost a handful. Some Wanted Bounties are also gated by your level, so if you're just starting out playing Forsaken, you might have to play onwards before they unlock.

Each Wanted Bounty points you in the direction of an escaped prisoner, who have fled across the solar system. Each one will tell you where they are - whether it's The Pit or Excavation Site XII.

Almost all of these are in Lost Sector locations, with the respective prisoner replacing the end-boss of each area.

As soon as the prisoner is defeated, the Wanted Bounty is complete - but make sure you also open the cache at the end to get a little extra loot. You then have to manually redeem the Wanted Bounty.

Not all Wanted Bounties are tied to Lost Sectors - the more expensive Wanted Bounties have different requirements, while the final one on the list is actually a challenging Adventure which rewards you with lucrative Powerful Gear.

Most Wanted Bounties are tied to the current week's Flashpoint location, and change every weekly reset - so make sure you complete as many as you need before the list changes. The locations are as follows:

Shayotet Partisan Wanted Bounty location

Location: The Conflux, The Cistern (Nessus)
Cost: 1 Ghost Fragment

Location: From The Cistern spawn point, follow the edge of the cliff to the right then follow the main path as it curve to the right. Leap over the white river/waterfall and you'll see the symbol on a square outcrop of rock.

Golmuut Wanted Bounty location

Be careful, as this area is full of Fallen and this drop can be a little tricky. The symbol will be on the wall just where you dropped down.

Devourer Darg Wanted Bounty location

Location: Skydock IV, Sunken Isles, EDZ
Cost: 3

Finding this Lost Sector can be really tricky, so instead of pointing you towards the symbol (which is already on your map), we're going to tell you how to find the entrance.

Head to the middle of the Cabal cruiser and drop down to either side. You should see an orange-lit road leading underneath it (see screenshot). From either direction, you should see a group of Cabal walking around on a raised platform.

Take these foes out (they're mainly Phalanx and Legionnaires, then head for the open doorway behind them. This is actually a shaft, so drop down, then turn left. Go through the doorway, then the second, then take another left. Welcome to Skydock IV.

Subterranean Mind Wanted Bounty location

Location: Pariah's Refuge, Mercury
Cost: 3 Ghost Fragments

The sole Mercury Lost Sector can be found on the southern edge of the area. If you are facing south at the portal to the Infinite Forest, turn left, and follow the cliff round until the entrance appears.

Irxis Partisan Wanted Bounty location

Location: The Glutch, EDZ
Cost: 4

Irxis Partisan is a high value target that will simply spawn in the Glutch, and not a specific Lost Sector. It'll appear at random intervals, so explore the area and if it doesn't show up, come back later. If you are in a rush, then you can try loading in and out of the area to see if that helps.

Hiraks' Familiar Wanted Bounty location

Location: Siren's Watch, Titan
Cost: 4

Hiraks' Familiar is a Hive high value target that will simply spawn in Siren's Watch, and not a specific Lost Sector. It'll appear at random intervals, so explore the area and if it doesn't show up, come back later. If you are in a rush, then you can try loading in and out of the area to see if that helps.

Splendid Mind Wanted Bounty location

Location: Glade of Echoes, Nessus
Cost: 4 Ghost Fragments

Splended Mindis a high value target that will simply spawn in Glade of Echoes, and not a specific Lost Sector. It'll appear at random intervals, so explore the area and if it doesn't show up, come back later. If you are in a rush, then you can try loading in and out of the area to see if that helps.

Gravetide Summoner Wanted Bounty location

Location: The Rig, Titan
Cost: 5
Reward: Powerful Gear

Gravetide Summoner is an Adventure that appears on Titan. It's a 540 recommended activity, so make sure you are levelled up as much as possible before taking it on, or have a fire team - it'll appear on your director once you've purchased the Bounty from Spider.

Here's a video by 360GameTV on how to beat it:


Arc Week sees the return of Thunderlord, while the rest of Forsaken's second DLC brings new Exotics for Season of the Drifter, a Destiny 2 level cap to reach, the return of Thorn and Allegiance with Drifter or Vanguard quests. As always, Forsaken activities are still worth checking out - including this week's Ascendant Challenge and Blind Well and Oracle Engine Offering activities. There's also the likes of the Ace of Spades, the Chaperone and Malfeasance to unlock.


How to get Lord of Wolves in Destiny 2

Lord of Wolves is an Exotic Shotgun added as part of the Forsaken expansion. Like other certain Exotic weapons, it's not part of the regular pool of Exotics you can get from activity rewards or opening Engrams.

Instead, Lord of Wolves is found by completing Wanted Bounties. Your chances are low, but keep handing them in, and it should drop eventually.

It has some unique perks - Shrapnel Launcher and Release the Wolves - which is detailed by Arekkz in the video above.
