As part of its new Warmind DLC, Destiny 2 now has a new collectible type called Lost Memory Fragments that are scattered around the DLC’s new Hellas Basin region on Mars. There are 45 Lost Memory Fragments in total, which means tracking them all down definitely won’t be a quick process.
However, players who put in the time to find all the fragments will be handsomely rewarded for their efforts, earning a whole bunch of Mars reputation tokens, cosmetic emblems, a brand new Exotic sword, and a spiffy new Exotic Sparrow. In the below guide, we have detailed the locations of all 45 Lost Memory Fragments and included screenshots so you’ll know exactly where to look.
Things To Know First
You can collect Lost Memory Fragments at any time during your adventures on Mars, and chances are good that if you’ve been working through the Warmind DLC’s new story campaign, you already stumbled across a few fragments, you probably just didn’t realize it at the time. Lost Memory Fragments take the form of round glowing objects that are adorned with symbols.
When you find a fragment, you’ll notice that it is also color-coded to one of five colors, and a fragment’s color indicates the weapon type you have to use to damage and destroy the fragment, collecting its data in the process. The five colors and their corresponding weapon elements are as follows:
- White – these fragments must be destroyed using any kinetic weapon.
- Blue – these fragments need to be hit with Arc damage to be destroyed.
- Yellow – Use Solar damage to destroy these fragments.
- Purple – Void damage will be required for these fragments.
- Deep Orange – For these fragments, you need to use the new Valkyrie spear legacy weapon.
Because of these different elemental requirements, make sure that you have at least one weapon of each elemental type before starting your Lost Memory Fragment hunt (if you have either the Hard Light or Borealis Exotic weapons, so much the better since both those weapons can cycle between all three elemental types). Destroying a fragment requires you to hit it with a sustained burst of constant damage, so try to take along some scout rifles and/or sniper rifles if you can since some of the fragments can only be shot from a long distance, making automatic weapons less ideal.
For each fragment you destroy, you’ll earn one Mars reputation token. When you destroy 35 fragments, you’ll be able to unlock a hidden cache that contains the ‘Worldline Zero’ Exotic sword. If you keep pushing onward and destroy all 45 fragments, you’ll be able to open a second hidden cache that contains two emblems and the ‘G-335 Anseris Overdrive’ Exotic Sparrow.
Lost Fragment Locations
To make things easier, we’ve broken up the Lost Memory Fragment locations into sections and listed how many fragments can be found in each part of Hellas Basin.
Olympus Descent (3 Fragments)
The Olympus Descent is the long cavernous passageway you venture through when you first arrive on Mars. It can be re-entered near the Glacial Drift spawn point.
Starting from where you first landed on Mars, proceed down the slope a bit, then turn to your left and look up at the glacier ridge. You should spot the Kinetic fragment up above.
After the first fragment, head down into the cave and keep going until you reach the first large room (you should see another pathway sloping up to your left). Head around to the left and look down into the bottomless pit to spot the Void fragment below.
Continue on through the cave tunnels until you reach a smaller room with a crashed Warsat. If you carefully maneuver around the Warsat, you’ll spot a Kinetic fragment precariously perched on the cliff behind it.
Glacial Drift (12 Fragments)
The Glacial Drift is one of the biggest outdoor parts of the entire Hells Basin, and it appropriately has the highest number of fragments to find.
Starting from where you exit the Olympus Descent cave network (immediately to the left of the Glacial Drift spawn point), proceed forward and look up to your left. Much like the first fragment in Olympus Descent, you should spot a Kinetic fragment up on a glacial ledge.
If you turn to the right from where the first fragment is, you’ll see a stone crenellation with some railing. An Arc fragment is nestled within the leftmost recess of the crenellation.
Facing north, hug the leftmost glacial wall (the same wall with the first fragment’s ridge) and keep going forward until you spot a building up on a hill (there should be a large red crate just outside the building’s entrance). Head inside the building and immediately turn around to find another Kinetic fragment on a shelf.
Head outside the building and turn to your left to spot an inactive monorail train. Hop up on the train, turn around, and then hop up onto the nearby pillar to spot the Kinetic fragment perched on the roof of the building you just exited.
If you look immediately to the right of where you destroyed the fourth fragment, you’ll spot a Solar fragment up on the rocky ledge.
While you’re facing the spot where fragment five was, hop down from the pillar and turn to your right. You should spot the first Valkyrie fragment hanging underneath the central causeway. You’ll have to wait until the Glacial Drift Warsat public event is going on so you can grab a Valkyrie and destroy the fragment. You’ll also need the Valkyrie for the next fragment too.
While facing the location of the sixth fragment, head underneath the causeway and you’ll spot a large dead tree just to your left. Go around to the other side of the tree and you’ll spot another Valkyrie fragment nestled between its two topmost branches.
Facing the location of fragment seven, turn to the right and head across the map until you reach the large Clovis Bray facility at the end of the central causeway. Hop up onto one of the causeway’s pillars and look to the left part of the facility to spot a distant Kinetic fragment in the large vertical entryway.
While facing the Clovis Bray facility, turn to the right and keep going straight until you reach the southern edge of the map that drops down into a bottomless pit. If you carefully turn to the right and peek down, you’ll spot a Kinetic fragment nestled on the cliff.
Head back towards the Clovis Bray facility. While you’re standing on the central causeway, you’ll be able to spot an Arc fragment on the bottom strip of the open hangar door.
Proceed straight into the facility hanger and use the large crates to jump up to the upper walkway to your left. While on the walkway, face the opposite side of the hanger to spot a Kinetic fragment.
Hop down and exit the hanger before turning to the right and heading up the hill to spot a facility tunnel that leads up to the Braytech Futuresafe region. While heading through the tunnel, there will be a point where you have to turn sharply to the right to keep going. Instead, turn to the left and look behind the large hanging air conditioner unit to find a hidden Void fragment tucked in the corner.
Braytech Futuresafe (10 Fragments)
Braytech Futuresafe is the “main” region of Hellas Basin, being the area that contains the large Clovis Bray headquarters where Ana Bray can be found.
Starting from the tunnel you went through for the final Glacial Drift fragment, proceed north up the ramp until you can climb up to the left and reach the top of the large dam. Head back south along the top of the dam and look down to find a Void fragment on the dam wall below.
This one’s a bit tricky. turn back around so you’re facing the path of the ascending ramp and you should see a small building ahead and slightly to the right. Climb to the top of that building and look off to the south, towards the tunnel you exited from. You should see two rows of cylindrical containers, and on top of the leftmost row of containers you can barely make out a Kinetic fragment.
Turn directly around from where you’re facing the containers and proceed to the north, towards the area where the Cabal injection rig public event takes place. Before reaching the injection rig site, however, turn around once you’re at ground level and look for a staircase with some icicles hanging from it and a large yellow cylinder underneath. If you jump around so you can reach the underside of the staircase, you’ll find a hidden Solar fragment.
Head towards the Cabal injection rig site and proceed straight past it, keeping to the back of the Clovis Bray headquarters. If you keep going straight, you’ll reach a ledge with a large grey horizontal cylinder. Hop up on the cylinder and you’ll see a Kinetic fragment straight ahead.
This fragment requires the Valkyrie relic weapon so consider yourself warned. If you turn around from facing the spot where fragment four was, head towards the injection rig site and turn slightly to the right. You’ll see the fragment perched up on a vertical blue cylindrical tank. To destroy this fragment, you’ll have to wait until the Braytech Futuresafe Warsat event is active so you can grab a Valkyrie.
Head over to the main Clovis Bray headquarters courtyard and, while facing the headquarters entrance, look over to the upper right portion of the building. You’ll see a Solar fragment perched up on the roof.
While you’re standing directly in front of the Clovis Bray headquarters entrance, turn to your left and look down the corridor to find another Solar fragment up on the upper left line of windows.
Immediately after destroying fragment seven, take a few steps forward and look to your right to find a wall panel you can interact with. Activating the wall panel will open a facility door to the south. Just turn straight around from the panel and head straight until you see a wall with a large number “02” painted on the side, the door will be right next to the 02. Go through the door and straight up the stairs that are right in front of you to spot a room with a partially opened door and a Void fragment inside.
Head inside the Clovis Bray headquarters and in the center of the main lobby you should spot an Arc fragment on a pile of boxes.
Turnaround from the main Clovis Bray logo and you’ll spot a stairway with a flickering light. Head up the stairway and you’ll reach a large Warmind statue with a Solar fragment sitting at its base.
Aurora Reach (2 Fragments)
If you keep heading up the stairs past the last Braytech Futuresafe fragment, you’ll eventually reach Aurora Reach, a location you visited as part of Warmind’s two-part opening mission.
Proceed through Aurora Reach until you get to an outer balcony area with a large “Clovis Bray” logo painted on one of the upper walls. There’s a staircase that leads up to that logo, and if you duck down and peek underneath the floor to the left of that staircase, you’ll find an Arc fragment.
Head through the doorway underneath the Clovis Bray logo and keep going through the corridors, passing through a small circular tunnel you have to crouch-walk through. You’ll eventually run smack dab into a Void fragment sitting on a box.
Mindlab (4 Fragments)
If you keep heading deeper into the Clovis Bray facility past Aurora Reach, you’ll head into the Mindlab, another area you visited during Warmind’s opening missions.
Early on in the Mindlab, you’ll reach a point where you’re standing on an elevated platform and must drop down to proceed. However, if you look straight ahead, you’ll see a Solar fragment behind a glass barrier. To reach the fragment, jump across to an open vent, head through, and go around the corner.
Head further into the Mindlab until you reach a point where, after going up a long ascending ramp, you have to turn to the left and jump over to a large platform. Normally, there’s a central doorway on the platform you’d go through, but what you want to do instead is head to the platform’s far end (opposite of the side you jumped to) and look down.
You’ll see a large pipe you can jump down to and stand on. Proceed along the pipe and you’ll periodically pass small platforms on your right. Stand on the second platform you pass and look up to find a Kinetic fragment in the rafters above.
There’s a good chance that you inadvertently got this fragment in the opening Warmind mission during the part where you get to first use the Valkyrie (that’s what happened to me, hence why there’s no visible fragment in the above screenshot). The fragment itself is in an alcove underneath the double staircase you reach when you proceed through the central doorway from the platform you jumped to, but it requires a Valkyrie to destroy. The fragment can be destroyed if you’re standing on the stairway directly above it and use the Valkyrie’s ground slam attack.
Clear out the Hive enemies in the Valkyrie tutorial area from fragment three to unlock the door that leads to Rasputin. If you turn to the left in the hallway connecting the outer area to Rasputin’s chamber, you’ll see a Kinetic fragment in the distance.
Dynamo Approach (1 Fragment)
The Dynamo Approach is the outdoor passageway that connects the Glacial Drift region to the Alton Dynamo facility.
There’s only one fragment to get in the Dynamo Approach but it can be a real pain if you don’t have a Solar scout rifle or sniper rifle handy. As you’re travelling through the approach towards Alton Dynamo, you’ll eventually notice a large radio tower up and to your left.
You have to head further north and turn to face southwards towards the tower to see the Solar fragment on the tower’s eastern edge. I was able to eventually destroy the fragment with Hard Light after a lot of frustrated swearing and cursing, but if you have a more precise Solar weapon, you should be ok.
Alton Dynamo (9 Fragments)
If you keep heading through the Dynamo Approach, you’ll reach the Alton Dynamo facility.
While you’re heading through the long ice tunnel that leads into the facility, there’s a point where the tunnel gives way to a corridor with a higher ceiling. If you turn directly around at this point, you’ll see a Kinetic fragment up on a ledge.
When you enter the facility proper, you’ll have to jump over to a walkway that has patrolling enemies on it. Head down the walkway for a bit and you’ll soon be able to spot a Solar fragment on a pillar junction point.
Right after getting the second fragment, you’ll head into a corridor and eventually reach a point where you can go either left or right. Go right and you’ll end up in a large room with lots of vertical data stacks. Head to the right side of the room and you’ll spot a corner alcove that’s lined with ceramic tiles. If you turn your back to the alcove and look up, you’ll see a Kinetic fragment on the adjoining data stack.
Now head back through the hallway you came through and this time take the left path at the fork (so straight ahead if you’re approaching from the third fragment room). When you enter the first large room, look slightly up and to the right to see a vent cover you can shoot out. Go through the vent, shoot out the second cover, and proceed to the back left of the small room you find yourself in to locate a terminal you can activate.
Proceed through the facility as normal, passing through the initial large room, a second large room with a central reactor, and a third large room that’s bathed in blue light and has icicles hanging from the wall. Past the icicle room is a hallway that leads to an incredibly small room. If you stand near the closed doorway on your right, it will partially open (thanks to the console you triggered earlier), allowing you to shoot the revealed Arc fragment.
In the same room as fragment four, there’s another Arc fragment on a container to the left. In fact, you’ll probably spot this fragment before you even open the door to find fragment four.
In the central reactor room you can reach after passing through the vent room, you might see a Void fragment behind glass in the ceiling above. To get a good angle, you have to climb up the reactor so that you’re facing the fragment and can get a clears shot.
As you enter the blue icicle room, proceed straight across from the point where you enter and hop up on the ledge. If you look down into the mist, you’ll spot a Kinetic fragment down below.
In the icicle room, look up at the central ceiling rafter while standing near the doorway that leads to fragments four and five to locate another Kinetic fragment.
The final fragment is in the large room just past the small room that contains fragments four and five. Head over to the right side of the room, turn, and look up towards the ceiling pipes on the room’s left side to spot a Void fragment.
Ma’Adim Subterrane (2 Fragments)
The Ma’Adim Subterrane is one of the new Lost Sectors you can plunder on Mars. In addition to its usual loot cache, it also houses two Lost Memory Fragments. You can find this Lost Sector in the Glacial Drifts region of Mars.
As soon as you enter the Lost Sector, you’ll see a large bottomless pit straight ahead. If you maneuver around the pit so that you’re facing towards the Lost Sector’s entrance and then look down into the pit, you’ll see a Kinetic fragment down below.
If you look up after shooting the first fragment, you might just spot the second fragment, also a Kinetic fragment, on the ground near the pit’s edge.
Core Terminus (2 Fragments)
This is the other new Lost Sector that can be found in the Hellas Basin on Mars, and it too houses two Lost Memory Fragments to find. To reach the Core Terminus, you have to head through the 02 doorway you opened back during the Braytech Futuresafe fragments run.
When you reach the first large room that contains a group of Hive enemies, you’ll find a closed glass doorway at the far back right part of the room with a terminal beside it. Activate the terminal to trigger some AI voiceover and then interact with the door to have it partially open, allowing you to shoo the Solar fragment within (apologies for not showing the fragment in the above screenshot, I accidently shot it before remembering I had to screenshot it).
For this second fragment, you have to make sure that there are some Hive enemies still alive so don’t clear out the Lost Sector just yet. After activating the terminal for the first fragment, head deeper into the Lost Sector and you’ll find a second glass doorway and adjoining terminal you can activate. However, activating the terminal won’t open the doorway, which makes sense because there’s no visible fragment inside.
What you have to do is go even further in until you reach the room containing the Lost Sector loot cache and look over to the right. You’ll see a third glass doorway that should be open if you triggered both terminals and didn’t kill the nearby Hive enemies. Through that doorway you’ll spot the Arc fragment you need to finish off your collection.
Finding The Worldline Zero Sword
While you’re in the Core Terminus Lost Sector gathering up the last two Lost Memory Fragments you need, you can also snag the Worldline Zero Exotic sword. When you enter the first large room (the same room that contains the doorway with the first fragment), you’ll find a large cache if you hug the left wall and head around the corner. If you have recovered at least 35 fragments, you can activate the cache to claim your new Exotic sword.
Finding The G-335 Anseris Overdrive Sparrow
Once you’ve acquired all 45 Lost Memory Fragments, you have to head all the way back to the beginning, namely the Olympus Descent region, to find your ultimate reward. Head to the crashed Warsat where you found the third Olympus Descent fragment and you’ll notice some ice ledges you can use to reach a hidden chamber that’s directly below the Warsat. Be careful when entering the chamber as a Hive Knight stands guard down there. With the Knight dead, you can head in to find a second cache, and using it will award two emblems and the G-335 Anseris Overdrive Exotic Sparrow.
