All Darkness Rift locations for the No Peeking Triumph in Destiny 2
Most locations in Destiny 2 are full of secrets, and the Throne World of Savathûn is no exception. The Witch QueenThe destination has a slew of collectibles to hunt, from Lucent Moths to Darkness Rifts. Just like the pyramid shards in beyond the lightIn Europa, Rifts of Darkness are scattered throughout the Throne World, and players will need a specific Exotic weapon to fire them: the Parasite Grenade Launcher, available after a lengthy post-campaign quest.
Players may have stumbled across the Darkness Rifts on their travels. The rifts look like a dimensional tear or a small portal, making them feel more like part of the storyline than a secret. Shooting them, however, provides an immunity warning, indicating that there is more than the guardians’ eyes can see – a common theme in the world of Savathûn’s Throne.
Here are the locations of the 10 Darkness Rifts if you’re looking for the No Peeking Triumph in Destiny 2, and a quick breakdown of how to shoot them. Most are scattered around the Throne World, but there is one in each Lost Sector and one in the Reflection Altars activity. Feel free to head to the Reflection Altars after completing a Lost Sector, but it will send you back to Quagmire.
How to close Darkness Rifts in Destiny 2
To close the rifts of darkness, you don’t need to pull them with the handle of salvation like the pyramid shards in beyond the light, but the formula is quite close. Players must have Parasite, the Exotic Grenade Launcher available in the Of Queens and Worms quest, and use it to shoot the ground near their feet (but not close enough that they die from the explosion). This will give them the Worm Byproduct buff, which will allow them to close the rift by shooting it, as content creator Esoterickk spotted.
Darkness Rift One: Extraction Lost Sector, Quagmire
The first Darkness Rift on our list is in the Lost Mining Sector, located in Quagmire. Go through the Lost Sector as usual and you’ll find the Rift of Darkness above the last chest.
Darkness Rift Two: Temple of Cunning
Take the quagmire path that leads to the Temple of Cunning and get ready for a walk. Once you get to the ledge before the Temple of Cunning, look to the right side of the area to spot a section of rock that makes it a clearly accessible area. Drop down, then past the Scorn and the first set of chandeliers, take out the second group of Scorn and find the area to the right you spotted earlier.
From there, you’ll find the Darkness Rift on top of a ledge. Hug the raised rock on the right if you want a better view, then look for a ledge near the ground. This will act as a fulcrum for the platform with the Rift. If you need more space to shoot Parasite, you can either drop down to the ground and climb up, shoot him from the rock you spotted in the way, or jump onto a nearby ledge.
Darkness Rift Three: Quagmire
Fast travel to the Quagmire landing zone, then head to the southeast part of the map, where you’ll find the entrance to Alluring Curtain just to the right of the path leading to Florescent Channel. Look for the Dark Rift at the top of a house and shoot it to put another notch on your No Peeking triumph.
Darkness Rift Four: Fluorescent Channel
From the previous rift, head inside the Florescent Channel and look for a small plaza with three alcoves, just off the main walkway. Look behind the middle alcove to find this Dark Rift, head inside and look for a small ledge where you can stand and walk around. Shoot the ground with Parasite and pocket this Rift.
Darkness Rift Five: Court of Thorns
According to Esoterickk, this one can debug, but players can still find it using Immune prompts. Go to the Court of Thorns, just off the Florescent Channel, and look for that Rift of Darkness high above. To get to the Court of Thorns, find the entrance on your map and take either side path near the glowing Eye of Sauron-esque gate. Go to the penultimate horizontal shrub on the right side and look at the construction above the door. You will see curves on the platform. Keep your aim on the left curve.
Shoot the area until you get an immune prompt for where the Dark Rift is, then shoot Parasite on the ground and shoot the general area until you get it. Auto Rifles worked the best for us, but you can do this with any weapon that has a decent rate of fire and range.
Darkness Rift Six: Sepulcher Lost Sector (Fluorescent Channel)
It is one of the easiest to find. Clear the Sepulcher Lost Sector as normal, then face the last chest and look left to spot this Dark Rift.
Darkness Rift Seven: Queen’s Bailey
Exit the Sepulchre, then go to Queen’s Bailey, located at the far north end of the Florescent Canal. Once inside, look left and find a raised section with a Hive statue on either side. Climb the stairs and look up to find this Darkness Rift.
Darkness Rift Eight: Metamorphosis Lost Sector (Miasma)
This one might take some quick reflexes, but it’s pretty easy to get once you know what to look out for. You’ll need to head to the Transfiguration Lost Sector in Miasma, and since you’re already outside Queen’s Bailey, you can either take the path to Miasma or teleport to Quagmire and Sparrow.
Pass the Lost Sector as usual and you’ll find the elevator that takes you back to the entrance. Before interacting with him, shoot Parasite at your feet to get the Worm Byproduct buff, then keep an eye out for the rift as the elevator launches you. It should be slightly below you to your right. As the elevator sends you, keep an eye out ahead. When you see the opening in the cave, prepare your weapon. An automatic weapon works for this since you don’t have much time. You should have enough buff to get to the elevator and shoot it quickly, but if you fail you can redo the Lost Sector.
Darkness Rift Nine: Miasma
Head to Miasma and look for the building with the Savathûn rune on it. There are usually Hive Lightbringers in the area, and they have a high power level, so they can wipe you out if you’re not careful. Once the area is clear, look to the right side (facing the entrance) to find this Rift hidden behind a large statue.
Darkness Rift 10: Shrines of Reflection
The last doesn’t really have a set location. Altars of Reflection appears in the main campaign, but it is also a type and location-changing activity. Players can either do whatever Reflection Altars are rotating at the time, or head to The Mirror mission in this Darkness Rift’s campaign. Some Reflection Altars are located inside the Lost Sectors, so you can also get it when you’re inside the Lost Sector.
Once you get to the last room with the memory, head to the middle of the room and look to your left to find this Darkness Rift.
