With the story around Rasputin, Clovis Bray, and the giant Exo head, it looks like Bungie has added a mechanical dog in the game as well with Destiny 2’s Season of the Seraph. And yes, players will be able to pet this dog in the HELM.
There are two triumphs tied to the new mechanical dog in the game right now, under Triumphs>Season of the Seraph, Ritual, Secrets. You’ll see the first triumph Guardian’s Best Friend requires players to find the mechanical dog in the exotic mission Operation: Seraph’s Shield.
And the second triumph called Yes, You Can Pet the Dog requires you to pet the dog in the HELM. In this guide, you’ll find out how to find and pet the mechanical dog in Destiny 2.
UPDATE: Bungie has relocated the Mechanical Dog in Destiny 2 for Season of the Deep. The dog can now be found outside the Ada-1 room in the Tower.
How to Find the Mechanical Dog in Destiny 2
The mechanical dog is located behind the door that’s tracking all the security drones in the new exotic mission Operation: Seraph’s Shield, which unlocks the new exotic pulse rifle, Revision Zero. (here’s how to unlock the exotic weapon and its four exotic catalysts)
Guardian’s Best Friend triumph: Find the mechanical dog in the mission “Operation: Seraph’s Shield.”

Yes, You Can Pet the Dog triumph: Pet the mechanical dog in the H.E.L.M. during the final weeks of Season of the Seraph.

If you’ve unlocked the new Revision Zero exotic pulse rifle, there are about fifty security drones that you need to destroy for six secret triumphs. We have a complete guide on the location of these drones below. You can also watch the video guide by Esoterickk below.
