When Season of the Seraph launched, players found out about these mysterious yellow orbs floating all over Europa, Moon, and the new Heists activity. And these were immune to any kind of damage, not anymore.
These yellow orbs are called “Security Drones” and it appears these can be destroyed by the new exotic pulse rifle Revision Zero. Revision Zero, the new exotic pulse rifle is now live in Destiny 2, and players can get the weapon by completing the exotic quest in the game, see our complete guide on how to unlock the weapon here. This is definitely one of the most customizable exotics in the game right now, as it features two origin traits, four exotic catalysts, and three ornaments.
There are 50 of these security drones in total. In this guide, we’ll have the location for each of these drones.
Destiny 2 Security Drones Location
As mentioned, there are a total of 50 Security Drones that can be destroyed using the new Revision Zero exotic. You can find the total number of drones in each location below:
- Moon: 10 Security Drones
- Europa: 10 Security Drones
- Moon Heist Battlegrounds: 6 Security Drones
- Europa Heist Battlegrounds: 6 Security Drones
- Mars Heist Battlegrounds: 6 Security Drones
- Seraph’s Sheild Exotic Mission: 21 Security Drones
