Destiny 2 Lightfall: How to Get Cloud Accretions

Here's how to find Cloud Accretions across Neomuna in Destiny 2 Lightfall.

Every new Destiny 2 expansion brings tons of new consumables, materials, and currencies, and Lightfall is no exception. Being a similar size to the Witch Queen’s Throne World space, the neon-soaked city of Neomuna is home to many secrets, nooks and crannies worth exploring. In many of them, you’ll find Cloud Accretions, the planetary material of Neptune. We’ll discuss the best way to get Cloud Accretions in this guide.

How to Get Cloud Accretions in Destiny 2 Lightfall

You can gather Cloud Accretions whether you own Lightfall or not, as the area is open to all players. The material exists in the three primary patrol areas and the outlying spaces of the map. They appear to be small crystalline bushes that hide next to structures and other bits of terrain.

Cloud Accretions rarely appear out in the open, so they can sometimes be hard to spot. The best and most consistent way to find them is to equip a Ghost mod from the series of Resource Detector mods.

Depending on the cost of the mod, you’ll be able to see Cloud Accretion spawns on your HUD from as little as 20 meters to as many as 75.

You can enhance this detection even further by equipping a weapon with a high zoom level, with Sniper Rifles the best and obvious choice. Doing so extends the detection range.

One caveat: Cloud Accretions tend to hang around in the world after you collect them for other players to find, so they’ll also remain on your HUD for a while. Note also that only a few spawn in a zone at one time — you can’t target farm a single instance too quickly. You can, however, move between zones and farm infinitely if you’d like.

You’ll need Cloud Accretions to complete the Unfinished Business Exotic quest. As collecting them also awards a small amount of Nimbus Reputation, they’re a good supplement to any Reputation grind you might be doing.

That’s all you need to know about how to get Cloud Accretions. We’ve covered plenty of other Lightfall topics here, including how to get the Quicksilver Storm Catalyst, increase your Power level fast, and kill Tormentors. Our Destiny 2 guides hub has even more.
