Presage is the new Exotic quest for Destiny 2‘s Season of the Chosen. It’s a mysterious journey through a semi-abandoned Cabal, rewarding you with the Dead Man’s Tale Exotic scout rifle. You will need to find all 15 clues of the Presage to unlock the Ghost you are looking for and discover Glykon’s secret.
Below, we have listed every scanned object in the Presage and how to find all of them. In addition to more legends and some additional dialogue, you’ll complete the Captain’s Log weekly challenge and two wins to find all the clues, as well as unlock the Gilgamesh Exotic Ghost cover.
You can start with the first batch of clues on the first play. That said, we recommend using our Exotic Presage task guide to run through the task at least once. Anyway, you need to run the task multiple times, and running at full capacity makes it easier for you to keep track of the scanned objects you need.

Captain’s Log weekly challenge
There are 15 Presage clues in total, but you can’t find them all at once. You will explore all of them in three runs and you have to find all the objects from one section before moving on to the next. This first episode will help you get the weekly Captain’s Log challenge for the Season of the Chosen and unlock the victory for the next clue episode.
Clue 1: Cabal’s agency
The first scanned object stares at you right in front of you, so it is difficult to miss. Progress through the first part of Glykon until you reach the point you unlock the door leading to the ramp of the ship, where you begin the mission. Through the next door, you will find many Cabal armies suspended by overgrown trees. The scanned object is the first object you see, proudly displayed in the center of the room.
Clue 2: Disdain helmets
Scorn helmet is located at the top of the electric fence puzzle. For the first part, you usually shoot some spores before jumping across the gap to pass a portal. Skip that for now and jump the gap instead. Look in the dark beside the spore gate to find a helmet. This object is a bit difficult to detect, so use Ghost to scan if you run into problems.
Bodyguard boat jumps
The next target arrives much later on the mission. There is a huge fight in Glykon’s hangar that culminates with two Abomination Majors. After everyone’s gone, head towards the back corner of the room where you’ll usually jump over to the next hangar. The clue is that the train is sitting right next to the platform that you used to exit.
Dark Ether container
After the big fight in the hangar, you will arrive at a room with an electric fence above. This puzzle involves exposing a coil of electricity that you must destroy in order to temporarily disable the fence and jump over to the other side. Once you are on the other side, go to the room on your left to activate the switch. You will find the scanned object to the right of that switch. Like the second clue, this clue is difficult to find. Scan the area with Ghost if you run into problems.
Message from Calus
The final clue appears after you defeat the Locus of Communion. After defeating the final boss, you must go through a door in the floor and follow a series of vents to find the Dead Man’s Tale Exotic scout rifle. Fall through the door in the floor but do not go in a straight line through the vent. Instead, turn around and jump over a small obstacle. You will find clues on the other side.
Another link in the winning chain
You’ll unlock another Link in the Chain win after finding the first five clues, unlocking six more clues on Glykon. Unlocking this victory unlocks your next victory, earns you some legends, and takes you one step closer to unlocking the Gilgamesh Exotic Ghost cover. According to the online report, you may need to wait until a reset occurs (every Tuesday in the Selected Section) to unlock your win. You will not be able to scan the objects you need until you win available Win screen.
The first clue to this step comes right after the first clue to the last step. Continue on until you reach the room where Cabal’s body is floating. Use the pipes to lead up to the next room. Directly inside, you will see a computer control panel and hear some new conversations. Scan the dashboard for the next clue.
The second scanned object appears in the electric fence puzzle. Continue the puzzle until you are in the middle with the fence on the sides. Usually, you need to jump over the gap and shoot a coil to fall through a door in the floor. Before jumping, look to your left to find the dismantled turret.
After the battle with the big hangar, use the pedestals outside Glykon to jump over another hangar. Instead of jumping on the train and continuing to move forward, check for the space just below the ship. The object that could be scanned was a lone flamethrower tank leaning against the left wall.
This clue comes almost immediately after the last. Use the ship to jump onto a shaft and pass through to enter a wooded room. In the center you will see a Scorn soldier lying on a round table. Scan it to continue.
The ghost of death
This clue comes right after the last one, and you can easily see it. Continue on until you reach a room with two rotating pedestals. You may have noticed a small ledge on the right side of the second platform on previous runs and that’s where you need it. At the end of the cliff, you will find a Dead Ghost on the ground. Scan it to find the fifth clue of this section.
Pile of gold
You can find the final clue after fighting the boss with Locus of Communion. After defeating him, fall across the floor to the room below, where you find the Dead Man’s Tale rifle surrounded by vile plant life. Instead of continuing, jump off the catwalk and back to find Calus’s gold. Scan it to find the final clue of this section.
All the Scattered Pieces victory
After finding the previous six items, you can go back to the Presage again for more clues, more dialogue, and more legends. The last four clues tied to the victory of All the Scattered Pieces. Just like last time, you may have to wait until reset for this win to be available (you can check in Win Page). After picking up the final clues, you’ll unlock the Gilgamesh Exotic Ghost cover and finally uncover the mystery of Glykon.
The first clue to this third leg comes right after the encounter with your first enemy (a bunch of broken Screebs). Scanned objects are in the room where you meet them. After dealing with them, check the platform on the left where they attack you to find a robot body lying on the floor. That is the first clue.
The next clue appeared shortly after the big fight in the hangar. After the battle, continue out using the pedestals but don’t go into the next hangar. On the first platform in space, look up to spot another platform. Jump on it and scan the antennas for this clue.
You don’t have to go far to find the next clue. Go out of the hangar first using the platforms and go into the second hangar. On the left side of the ship you need to jump on, you will see a lift platform. Hop on it and go to the endpoint closest to space. There, you will find a computer with a bright yellow screen lying on the ground, which is the next scanable object.
Right in front of the Locus of Communion boss, you will come to a small room with a Season of the Chosen icon box and a place to place your clan flags. The object that can be scanned is the oil cloth located next to the box. Scan it, and you’ll finish winning All the Scattered Pieces and unlock the Gilgamesh Ghost shell. Congratulations!
