Destiny 2 Forsaken, the third addition to Destiny 2, was launched in 2018. It’s a first-person shooter game, and the story spins around taking revenge for the death of Cayde-6.


With the launch of Destiny 2 Forsaken, new items got introduced in the game, like Corsair Down & Badge. In this article, we will be covering everything about Corsair Down.

If you have Corsair Down, you can find it in your inventory. You will get clues related to the actual regions where the body lies. We have mentioned some of the clues and what do they mean.

What’s Corsair Down?

Destiny 2 Corsair Down

Corsair Down is a random quest drop that is obtainable while patrolling in the Dream city. Corsair down’s drop rate is low, so completing Public events or Blind Wells is preferable. 

The primary function of this item is tracking deceased soldiers.

How does it work?

When you get Corsair Down, open your inventory. Take a glance at the description & you will see it’s somewhat a communication instrument. The device will be sending SOS with a repeating memo linked. You will find a hint written in the message. 


The hint is for the location of the sender. After reaching the spot, interact with the deceased body. Doing this will spawn a boss. Defeating him will give you a Corsair badge.

Locations of SOS messages

The SOS leads to a few locations such as Garden, Bay, Spine & Mist, Harbinger, Chamber, Aphelion, and others.


If the hint is related to the garden, you have to move towards the Gardens of Esila. It’s to the south of The Strand.

  2. The second body is lying north of the first one. Like the first one, this body is also resting against a wall.
  3. Look for the west of the garden. Another body is lying there at the edge of the scaffold.
  4. Again, head towards the north from the third body. You will find an Awoken Statue in ruins. Alongside the statue, you can see a planted tree. The body will be close to the tree.

Using Corsair Badge

As told before, the boss will spawn at the dead body. After you defeat the boss, you will earn the Corsair Badge.


You then have to carry the Corsair Badge to Queen’s Guard Camp. You can find the guard camp around the massive fate in Divalian Mists. You will encounter many NPCs there.

Interact with any of the NPC & present them the Corsair badge. They will show gratitude towards you for bringing the deceased soldier’s badge and offer you rewards in return. These rewards include dark fragments or gears.
