At times, you will need to hunt down specific types of enemies in Destiny 2. This can be for a quest, bounties, or limited time events that occur in the game. The Season of the Worthy has introduced Rasputin Bounties, one of which is to find Powerful Taken enemies. Powerful enemies are anything above a red health bar. Fortunately, tracking them down is pretty easy to do.
The Shattered Throne
If you can survive it, the Shattered Throne is a great place to find Power Taken enemies. Load into the Shattered Throne from the Dreaming City in your Director, then run to the first group of enemies. Taken them all out, including the named enemy, and move up the stairs to the right. The next area will spawn multiple Thrall when you arrive, some of which will be powerful. Just keep moving through the area, killing any enemies that arrive, and you should have finished your bounty of quest step in no time.
Another great place to find Powerful Taken enemies is in Reckoning. Just load in, and you will instantly be fighting hordes of Taken, many of which will be Powerful.
If you regularly play Gambit, then you can find Powerful Taken every time they end up being the enemy horde in this mode. It’s not ideal, as you never know which enemy type you will be fighting, but if you are in no rush, and play a lot of Gambit anyway, it’s a solid way to find them.
Io Lost Sectors
The Lost Sector, just across from Asher Mir on Io, is filled with Taken enemies. You will need to do multiple runs to find all the enemies that you need, but it’s the best place if you are low Power and need an easy place to farm them.
