Destiny 2: Excavation Site XII Location Guide

Can't find the lost sector Excavation Site XII? We show you the quickest way to get there for the new Forsaken bounties!

Much like the hidden area known as The Drain, Excavation Site XII is a hidden "lost sector" in Destiny 2 that gets more mileage out of the Forsaken DLC.

To complete new bounties in Forsaken, you've got to manually find this hidden area. If you haven't managed to locate this cleverly hidden cave, we've got you covered with the quickest way to get inside.

Looking for The Drain instead? Check out my full guide on how to find The Drain in the Outskirts of EDZ.

How To Find Excavation Site XII

With the Forsaken update, Spider will grant you the Wanted: Dust-Choked Thrag bounty. This one has you searching for an escapee from the Prison Of Elders, but there won't be a map marker showing you where to go.

All you have to go on is that the location is in the EDZ, somewhere. Apart from that, you've got to find the lost sectors for Spider's bounties on your own.

This particular lost sector is found in the Firebase Hades area. To get there, land at The Gulch, then head west through the passage.

When you exit to the south, stay near the cliff wall and eventually you will come across a barely visible cave entrance just to your side. You know you are at the right place if you see the white lost sector painting to the left of the cave entrance.

Unlike with The Drain, there's really only one way to go here so you can't get lost. Just head through the cave down the tunnel and a prompt should appear on your screen letting you know you found the lost sector Excavation Site XII.

Take out the enemies inside and then head further down to find the target of your Forsaken bounty!

That's all you need to know to find the Excavation Site XII lost sector in Firebase Hades of the EDZ! Be sure to also check out our other Destiny 2 guides below:
