Destiny 2: Where in the EDZ Is Archie?

Similar to the Cosmodrome quest, you should make your way to the Tower Annex and interact with the glowing green paw prints of Archie. These paw prints are usually found in Archie’s usual location.

After investigating the prints, visit Ada-1 and she will hand you the quest called “Where in the EDZ Is Archie?”.

For this step, you need to pay a visit to Deverim Kay in the Troastland, EDZ. From your Destinations, select the Troastland, EDZ landing zone. After spawning in, you’ll see a big church-like building. Deverim Kay will be waiting for you at the top.

  • “Visit Devrim Kay in the EDZ to ask about Archie’s whereabouts.”

  • “Archie heard about some feathers behind a fireplace. He’s hoping to find a glowing bird.”

This clue is located in the same area – Troastland. It’s in the building where you would go through a fireplace in the Harbinger exotic mission. Once inside the building, head to the first floor and keep an eye out for paw prints in front of a fireplace. Investigate the paw prints to progress the quest.

  • “Archie heard Guardians have picked up a chill new hobby called ‘fishing’ and went to check it out.”

The next clue is pretty straightforward. Open your map, and you’ll see a Fishing Pond event in the Outskirts, right next to the Defiant Battlegrounds: EDZ node. Make your way to this fishing pond and you’ll find Archie’s glowing paw prints nearby. Investigate to progress the quest.

  • “Archie heard about a ‘ship full of tanks and space rhinos’ and decided to go take a look.”

For this clue, you will need to fast travel to the Sunken Isles landing zone located at the top left of the EDZ map. Once you spawn in, head towards the giant Cabal ship right in front of you. Clear out the Cabal enemies guarding the front entrance, and you will find Archie’s paw prints in that area.

Investigate the paw prints to progress the quest.

  • “Archie’s last stop. He heard some Guardians talking about ‘the place where we reclaimed the Light’ and some cool floating rocks there.”

For the last clue, you will need to fast travel to The Sludge. After you spawn in, make your way to the cave-like entrance where you would normally go when entering the Dark Forest. At the end, you’ll find a Jammer. Disable the jammer and it will spawn a Taken portal in front of you.

Enter the portal, and you’ll find a bunch of enemies with two more jammers. Clear the area and disable the two Jammers. Disabling the jammers will spawn another Taken portal at the end of the area.

Again, enter the portal and it will lead you to the next location. In this area, you will have to disable three jammers. However, you should be aware that there will be a bunch of enemies in each location, and a boss will be waiting for you at the final location.

So, it would be best to have a well-rounded loadout, something like a Witherhoard grenade launcher, a reliable submachine gun or hand cannon such as Ikelos SMG or Zaouli’s Bane, and a Rocket Launcher.

Clear the area and deactivate the three jammers. It will spawn another Taken portal that will lead you to the final boss fight.

To successfully complete the mission, you need to enter this portal and spawn in the last arena.

Once there, you must focus on damaging the Cabal boss until it enters the immune phase. At this point, you will have to disable three jammers, which are located in the left, middle, and right of the area.

Please be aware that there will be two yellow-bar Psions waiting for you on the left and right jammers. After you have disabled all three jammers, the boss’s immune shield will disappear, and you’ll be able to damage the boss.

Once you have defeated the boss, the barrier around Archie will vanish, and you’ll be able to offer Pawsitive Reinforcement.

  • “Archie wanted to see the temple where Guardians famously ‘woke the Hive’!”

For this clue, you need to head to the Anchor or Light and make your way to the Temple of Crota. Enter the giant gate and at the far end of the room, you’ll see a yellow bar Wizard, next to the set of paw prints. Defeat the Wizard and interact with the paw prints to progress the quest.

  • “Archie heard about a place where Guardians took a plunge to defeat a Hive prince. Then some Witches started performing a ritual.”

Head over to the Hellmouth and you’ll find the next set of missing paws next to a Hive plate with a Hive portal in front of it.
