Destiny 2’s Shadowkeep expansion launched yesterday, taking us all to the Moon for some lunar adventures. While exploring the patrol areas, you may have come across an enemy called the Trove Guardian. These powerful yellow bar, or Major, enemies are tough to kill, but they do hide a secret that is revealed when they die.
Destiny 2 – Trove Guardian Guide
Trove Guardian in Destiny 2
Trove Guardians are very tough to kill, so if you are new to the game, you might want to have some friends along if you plan on fighting him below about 780 Power. They hit hard, and take a lot of damage, but are melee only so are pretty easy to kite. Once you have killed one, you will see a message appear on screen that says, “The Trove Guardian has fallen, a new pathway has opened.”
Now, search around the area you found the Trove Guardian in, and you should see a strange stone platform suddenly morph into existence. Jump onto the platform and run to the end of it, and another platform should spawn in ahead of you. Repeat this pattern until you reach the end of the pathway, and you will find a chest. Open the chest to get your hands on some loot.
I am unsure how many Trove Guardians are in the game at this moment, but I will add the location to the list below as I find more of them.

I will continue to update this guide with Trove Guardian locations as they are discovered.
