How to find the entrance to the Excavation Site XII Lost Sector located in the EDZ region of Destiny 2, clear the encounter and take home your loot.

If you’re after Excavation Site XII in the EDZ, first thing you’ll have to do is head to The Gulch’s landing zone. Once you land, spin around and jump down to the road. It’s at this point you’ve got to prepare for a lengthy journey over to the Red Legion’s Firebase Hades. Just follow the road until you get there and don’t stop travelling onwards even if you’re passing it by on the right. What you’re looking out for is actually on a distinctive rubble path to your left with a couple of Psions waiting at the top. It’s through here that you’ll be able to reach this Lost Sector.

Taking you through the process in text form is one thing, but actually showing you how to find it is infinitely more useful. That's why we've embedded a video just below which'll get you to this Lost Sector without a hitch and forewarn you of the dangers that lurk inside. If you found the video useful, do make sure you give it a thumbs up to support the creator and consider subscribing to their channel for more useful Destiny 2 content. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and you'll also spot our text summary of the video with a few further tips and tricks to take care of the mini-boss and nab your loot.

(If you want to be the best at every area of the game, don't forget to bookmark our PVP, Campaign walkthrough and Subclass guide pages - they've got everything you need if you want to get more out of Destiny 2, and will be continuously updated in the weeks ahead.)

  • Wind your way down the tunnel entrance and you’ll eventually encounter a couple of Legionary Phalanxes. Proceed to the bridge on the right and deal with the Cabal enemies you see in the way.
  • Funnily enough, you’ve already reached the mini-boss Dusk-Choked Thrag who’ll be hanging around in the middle of this bridge. He’ll have some Cabal backup streaming in from behind, so stay behind cover and deal with these threats first.
  • Once you’re confident that it’s only you and Thrag, it’s worth popping your Super and hitting him with everything you’ve got. Otherwise, jump over to the path past the bridge and use the rocks as cover, delivering pot-shots to the face until he goes down.
  • The loot crate will be sitting at the back of the Lost Sector, so head over to it, crack it open and collect those juicy drops.
  • Lost Sector complete!

    Dear Whoever Made All These Guides,

    Your guides are so stupid and kept coming up on the first of the list from google search, I had to create an account and leave this comment.

    Literally, all you had to do is to show the entrance, which can be as simple as a single screenshot indicating where the location of the entrance is. For example, every other f***ing guide on other websites. Instead, you had to upload a video showing you traveling from a fast travel point to the f***ing entrance. I don't want to watch a f***ing 3-4 minute long video. I can get the same exact information from a photo and it only takes a second. Even if you weren't smart enough to upload a photo and still had to upload a video, I would still be okay with it IF YOU SHOWED THE LOCATION AT THE START OF THE VIDEO.

    Whoever thought it would be a good idea to make these guides, should be fired.

    Best Regards
