All locations for paranormal activity in Destiny 2

Paranormal activity events pop up around the Pale Heart of the Traveler Lot 2′s The final shape.

The paranormal activity events only appear in certain places where you found and healed a ghost. Once you turn in an ‘Alone in the Dark’ mission to Micah-10, that location becomes available for paranormal activity. There are 11 in total, so you’ll need to complete eleven Alone in the Dark missions to unlock them all.

If you find and complete all eleven, you’ll achieve the Paracausal Geometry Triumph and unlock the First Knife exotic ship. Here are the steps to find and complete paranormal activity events in Lot 2.


How to complete ‘Alone in the Dark’ missions

After completing the campaign, connect with Micah-10 at a holoprojector in the Pale Heart version of the Tower. She gives you quests to find and bring back lost spirits in need of healing. After completing her first missions, she will have a repeatable quest called “Alone in the Dark”.

The quest ‘Alone in the Dark’ consists of several steps that you must complete. They are:

  1. Find the wounded spirit
  2. Open Overthrow Chests in a nearby region
  3. Follow the Vision of Light to a new location
  4. Defeat the boss and heal the Ghost

These ‘Alone in the Dark’ missions are fairly simple. The first step in finding the Ghost can be highlighted on your HUD to make it much easier to follow. Follow the marker until you see it Close to target appears on the left side of your screen. Once you reach the Ghost’s location, look around for the orange glow of the wounded Spirit.

Once you find it, you will be given the assignment Open toppled chests in the nearest region where you found the Spirit. Overthrow is the equivalent of public events in Pale Heart, so go to the indicated location and find and complete Overthrow events.

Every time you complete an event, a chest will spawn. Opening a chest adds a progress percentage to the meter; the higher the level, the more progress you make. I started an overthrow from the start of level 1 and had all the progress I needed before completing level 3.

Once that’s done, follow the quest indicator to find the Vision of Light, the bird that guides you through the Pale Heart. Follow it to a new location, where you must defeat a boss and then heal the injured Ghost.

There are a handful of different boss encounters here, but they all work relatively the same. Enter the boss’s arena, break crystals or plagues to get the boss out, then deal damage to the boss. Once it loses a third of its health, it will gain a shield and you will have to repeat the first step to break it.

Keep doing this until you finish the boss fight, then you can heal the Ghost. Then all you have to do is return to the Tower to turn in the quest.


Complete a paranormal activity event

Once the work of unlocking a location for paranormal activity by completing the associated ‘Alone in the Dark’ mission is done, the event itself is very simple. Please note that you can only complete the paranormal activity that is currently active on your map.

The starting point of paranormal activity in Destiny 2

To get started, mark the event on your map and follow the indicator to the location. There you will find a glowing blue orb in a circle that you can interact with. Interact with it and you’ll get the Aura of Balance for two minutes.

You may have noticed some strange blue and orange cubes around the Pale Heart, but you’ll have to wait until they’re active before you can interact with them. This is where the Paranormal Activity event comes in handy.

The goal here is to connect two cubes, the light one (with blue circles on it) and the dark one (with orange triangles on it). You continue to do this shoot each cube with the correct damage type. Shoot the blue cube with a light weapon and the orange cube with a dark weapon.

You first need to find a place where you can stand where you can see both cubes at the same time. This is usually very simple, but there are a few tricky ones.


All locations and solutions for paranormal activities

Here are all 11 paranormal activity locations, with screenshots of the cubes and descriptions of how to find them.

The order in which these appear seems to be different for each person, so I have listed them on the map in order from west to east. You may have to scroll back and forth through this list to find the one you need; if helpful, the top of this guide contains a drop-down menu of content to help you navigate each location more easily.

Lost suburbs of the city

As you exit the tower through the outskirts, you’ll find the Aura of Balance to the left of a gate, just after a courtyard with a large tree.

Turn around and look at the large tree in the center of the courtyard. Go up the stairs immediately to your left, then jump onto the planter in front of you.

From there you can see the orange cube on the other side of the courtyard by looking under the tree. The blue cube can be seen in the distance if you look through the fence in front of you. A ranged light weapon with a scope is very useful for this.
