Update: A new Tracing the Stars quest is live, check out our guide right here.



Destiny 2's Season of the Lost is here, promising an exciting time for Guardians leading up to the release of The Witch Queen expansion early in 2022.

Being a week into Season 15, fans have had time to grind the new season pass, collect the fresh weapons available from different activities, and dive deep into the Iron Banner. Now, the continuation of Tracing the Stars is here. 

The quest is a time-gated weekly mission that will ultimately reward players with an exotic Trace rifle as it's directly tied to Wayfinder's Voyage, with over 50 steps to complete, Bungie has made it so only a few can be completed after each reset.

We've already covered how to complete the first week of Tracing the Stars, so check out our guide right here. Without further ado, let's see what Tracing the Stars II has to offer.

How to complete Tracing the Stars 2 in Destiny 2

Similar to week 1, the new quest will be available on the Wayfinder's Compass. Once you pick it up, go talk to Mara Sov, and surprise, she'll task you with finding a new batch of Atlas Skews in the Dreaming City.

According to the quest description, these can be found within the Strand, Gardens of Esila, and the nearby Lost Sectors:

  • Strand Towering Statue
  • Strand Gazebo Statue
  • Garden Waterfall
  • Garden Bridge Tree
  • Aphelion Brazier

Tracing the Stars 2 - Atlas Skews locations

Here are all the Atlas Skews locations for Tracing the Stars 2.

Strand Towering Statue

As soon as you land on the Dreaming City, head towards the Strand and climb the rocky formation you see near the entrance. The Skew is right at the top waiting for you.

The final two are in the Gardens of Eselia, which is not a location found on the map, but it's easy to find. Once you enter the Strand, take a right and keep going down that path until you reach a small Awoken building, this will lead you to the Gardens, locate the waterfall to your right and the Skew should be right there.

Once you have all the five Atlas Skews, head back to the H.E.L.M and activate the special  A Hollow Coronation event from the directory. Place the Skews in the highlighted artifact and the mission should end, simply enjoy the lore and then talk to the Compass once again to collect your reward, the new stasis Fracthethyst shotgun.
