The lore of Destiny 2 is rife with interesting and terrifying factions. The remnants of the solar system are filled with all manner of threats and long-lost tech, and players get to dig through all of it as they play the game. The nomadic Fallen are one of those threats. The Fallen are some of the most vicious and conniving foes you will face in the game.
Fallen enemies in Destiny 2 are some of the more challenging fights in the entire game. They have a variety of powerful Shock weapons that they can bring to bear, but even have a variety of vehicular weapons they can leverage. So when you get handed a Strike or other mission to take them down, you better come with all guns blazing.
Fallen enemy types in Destiny 2 are as follows:
The aerial Skanks and Dregs of the Fallen are not too hard on their own, but the Captains and Archons pose quite the threat. And when you get charged with taking on Powerful Fallen or Scorn enemies or other tough bosses for various quests in the Season of the Worthy, it helps to know where to look.
To find Fallen enemies in Destiny 2, you need to look in a few different places. Keep in mind that the process can be a bit of a challenge as their spawns are randomized to a degree. There are some Zavala quests that will task you with hunting them down, so that might make them easier to find if you know where to start searching.
Zavala will issue quests based on completing a certain number of Strikes, while also taking out a requisite number of Fallen enemies of different types. Some quests have markers for completion at 150 kills or more, and these kills only count during Strikes, so you need to focus farm certain Strikes to fulfill these requirements.
Zavala’s bounties are random as well, so there’s not always going to be Fallen to hunt in every batch.
The Arms Dealer, Lake of Shadows, Savathun’s Song, Exodus Crash, and Broodhold are all the first places you should start your search.
For those looking to take down Fallen bosses as part of some bounties, focus on farming the Exodus Crash first, as this has a few of them. Some players mention the Servitor boss in the Warden of Nothing quest, but it appears as though this particular boss does not fulfill the reward for some reason, maybe Bungie will change that sometime. However, there is a bounty that may pop up called Serve the Servitors that could be farmed for this boss, so if you get that one, go to that Strike to complete it.
