Destiny 2: Season of the Haunted: Calus Automaton locations guide

Sever is the weekly mission for Destiny 2‘s Season of the Haunted. These missions take you through parts of the Leviathan Underbelly as you work through Nightmares that are haunting some of your allies.

Hidden in each of these missions is a Calus Automaton (one of the robots from the Leviathan raid) that will give you some lore when you approach and activate it. Activating all six of the Automatons will unlock the Hear, Don’t Heed Triumph, which is needed for the seasonal title, Reaper.

In this Destiny 2 guide, we’ll go over where you can find each of the Calus Automatons hidden in the Sever missions. Note that while these missions initially unlocked weekly, they’re all available to play once you’ve completed them once. Since all the missions are now available, you can now jump into each of the missions to grab any Automatons you’re missing in a single week.

Immediately after you exit the vast network of tubes at the start of the mission – before activating the first Egergore spores to progress – turn right. Walk down the short hall and you’ll find the Calus Automaton sitting in the corner. Walk up to it and it’ll start talking to you.

It’s sitting in the room with all the hanging plants toward the beginning of the mission. Kill the enemies and head toward the back of the room from where you entered (instead of heading left toward the objective). You’ll find the Automaton tucked behind one of the plant-growing booths.

It’s in a small room off Engineering Bay – this is where you fight alongside some Cabal to clear the area. Kill all of the enemies and make your way back to where you first dropped down. Look straight ahead and you’ll see a door. Enter the U-shaped room and you’ll see the final Automaton located to your left.
