Destiny 2 Artifacts Edge, The Tangle Lost Sectors

The three Lost Sectors in Artifacts Edge and The Tangle are:

  • The Orrery
  • Ancient's Haunt

The Orrery location

Location: From the bottom of the lift, head towards the big circular opening in the cliff to your left. On the right-hand side of the opening you'll find the symbol on a rock wall. From the symbol, turn right and head through the opening in the wall. Turn left and you'll enter a large, open room.


Strategy: In the large open room, there are no enemies in here, so cross to the blue-lit opening across the room. Now turn turn left, then right (there will be a gun symbol on the wall).

You'll immediately encounter some Vex. Take out the Goblins in front of you, then focus on the Hobgoblins on the far ledge. When they're dealt with, turn right and start sniping the Hobgoblins at the top of the far stairs.

Try and get precise headshots to reduce their chance of regeneration. There are lots of Goblins here, but no Furies so you shouldn't get too overwhelmed.

The boss, Thydron, looks tough but is actually press easy if you have a decent energy weapon (such as a high-level pulse rifle) to hand.

Drain his shield and pepper his health, but beware that there may still be a few Goblins and Hobgoblins waiting to ambush you. When he's toast, the loot chest can be found at the far end of the platform.


August's big new feature is the introduction of Destiny 2 cross saves, while the Moments of Triumph and Solstice of Heroes are soon to draw to a close. We've seen several other Exotics added to the game recently too - including Lumina, Truth, Bad Juju and Outbreak Perfected. The start of this season saw the introduction of The Invitation quest steps, Imperial Treasure Map locations, Imperials and an increased Destiny2 power level cap. As always, Forsaken activities are still worth checking out - including the Ascendant Challenge this week and Blind Well and Oracle Engine Offering activities.

Ancient's Haunt location

Location: From the Artifacts Edge entrance to The Tangle, grab your Sparrow (if you have one yet) and head across the map, around the larger stone platforms until you reach a red-coloured rock face and cave entrance. The symbol is here, but so are a few Goblins so deal with them first.


Strategy: Once you pass through the cave entrance, turn left and you'll seen see an opening with some red moss around it. Pass through it, drop down then drop down again. Turn right, then right, the finally left to enter the main area.

This chamber is huge and you'll fight across the whole thing as you pursue the boss, Pakrion. The area is full of Goblins, with a few Minotaurs and Hobgoblins thrown in for good measure.


The floating Vex boss will be just around the corner at the far end, to the left. Take out the Hobgoblins around him, and strafe away from his exploding, purple attacks. Try and time your hits as his shield shows an opening.

Pakrion will keep retreating until he reaches a dead end, this is a great place to hit a super or a couple of grenades. The loot chest can be found just behind him. An opening to lead you back to the start of the large chamber you're in will be to the left of it.
