These are all the Destiny 2 Security Drone locations that you can find during the Season of the Seraph. Most are hidden in plain but some others are tucked away in the most unlikely of places.
In this Destiny 2 guide, we’ll tell you where you need to go in order to find and destroy all the Security Drones across the system. Destroying all the drones will unlock the Archangel’s Refit Exotic Vehicle and will contribute to unlocking your Seraph Seal.
What are Security Drones in Destiny 2?
Security drones are mysterious floating orbs that serve an unknown function. They are immune to all kinds of attacks save from the bullets of the Revision Zero Pulse Rifle.

Security Drone 30: Found in a side room before the encounter at the chamber where a locked door protects the submind vault, this drone is hiding behind some old computers. If you start the encounter and your ghost does its thing, then you’ve gone too far.
Security Drone 31: This drone is floatingabove the chamber where you’ll have to hold out as your Ghost opens the door that leads to the submind and the final encounter. Look for the line of bright lights.
Security Drone 32: The final drone for the mission is located at the vault’s entrance. Upon entering the area, look right and you’ll see the drone underneath one of the supports holding the submind chamber. If you go as far as the laser is, then you missed it.
Heist Battleground: Mars

Security Drone 38: Seen just before going down to the entrance of the submind vault, this drone is floating on top of a roof. Clear the enemies around the door and look back opposite where the vault is, and you should be able to see it instantly.
Operation: Seraph’s Shield – Seraph Station
The final 12 drones are located in different parts of the Station. This also includes the one drone found on Earth before taking the elevator to the Station.
Note: It is currently not possible to get to many of these drones as they are locked behind doors that require a higher security clearance level. We will update this article once we have the necessary information.
Update: As of week 4 of the "More Than a Weapon" seasonal quest, the security clearance ability is available for pick up on the EXO frame, allowing us the ability to open security doors on Seraph Station.
Update: As of the fifth week of the season, we now have access to all the abilities necessary to access the drone locations.
To open the security door, just walk up to the door, and interact with it. You’ll then have to shoot three disks until the full image appears. The disks will be on walls or around pillars near the door. You have 30 seconds to shoot a disk or the cycle restarts.
Security Drone 39: Warmind launch facility during Operation Seraph’s Shield quest. Jump walk off the platform on the right side that’s facing the cliff. There is another platform below where the security door is.
Security Drone 40: Done after the first vent section after getting the Scanner buff again, this cheeky security drone can be found above the doorway leading back to the room that has the first laser trap. Will need the tactical armor to proceed.
Security Drone 41: After the maintenance shaft in Engineering. The door beneath the vent that requires an active Scanner. You’ll need to solve a simple puzzle to open the door.
Security Drone 42: The next security door can be found past the contamination chamber. This is also the first time you’ll be picking up the Operator buff. Dispatch the Fallen and then you’re free to solve the door puzzle.
Security Drone 43: Engineering section – This drone can be found underneath the top floor of the room leading up to the decontamination chamber with the 9 consoles. You can reach it by doing some jumps.
Security Drone 44: This drone can be found in the dark room past the last traps in the server rooms part of Engineering. Using Tactical Armor, just run past the lasers and head to the back. That’s where the drone will be. And don’t forget to open the chest on your way out.
Security Drone 45: This drone can be found in the locked vent after you’ve cleared the Engineering server rooms. The vent is located in the final room that’s guarded by Fallen and Arc turrets. If you go forward to where you need to be “captured” then you’ve missed it.
Security Drone 46: Located in the atrium in the Engineering Sector left of the door you first came in, the door can be accessed before or after dealing with the Hive boss and setting yourself up to be captured.
Security Drone 47: This drone is found in the hangar of the Logistics Sector. The room it’s located in is found on the left side past the laser trap.
Security Drone 48: This drone can be found behind the security door in the room just before the boss encounter in the room of the Operations Sector.
Security Drone 49: The security door on the right side of the room where you have to upload the virus after the final encounter, is where you’ll find drone #49.
Security Drone 50: The final security drone can be found in the Warsat Control Nexus. It’s on the left side of the room where you need to upload the virus, past the laser trap.
Tagging all 50 drones will unlock the locked door on Seraph Station and progress your Seraph title. You’ll obtain the Archangel’s Refit exotic vehicle upon checking off the task on your tracker.
And that’s all the security drone locations in Destiny 2 Season of the Seraph. Happy hunting, Guardians.
