Destiny 2: Forsaken The Trickster Mission Walkthrough

Destiny 2 Forsaken The Trickster Mission

  • Mission Type: Forsaken (Legacy)
  • Mission Location: Tangled Shore

After recently defeating the Mad Bomber, Kaninks, you are now coming after Araskes, the Trickster, who Ghost claims is a coward who hides behind traps and flunkies.

You will be searching for her after chasing after one of her couriers to figure out where she is holding out before pursuing her.

Mission Objectives

Destroy the Trickster’s Courier

To first figure out where The Trickster Arakses is hiding, you will first need to find her courier who is lurking about in the area you start in.

Watch out for what appears to be goodies such as the Exotic Engrams that can be picked up as these are explosives set up by The Trickster.

Disable the Fabricators

After picking up one of the many explosives which are disguised as Exotic Engrams, Ghost says that these are meant to be shipped and must be prevented before they reach the city.

To prevent more production, you will need to find the Fabricators and destroy them, which are spread around the area. (You need to destroy 2 in total.)

To destroy the Fabricators, follow the waypoint and make your way inside towards the center but watch out for the rotating parts.

Once you’re at the center, you will see the parts which you should destroy and can use either your weapons or the explosives that look like Exotic Engrams.

Hunt the Trickster

After destroying the Fabricators, follow your waypoint which will point you in the direction where The Trickster is camped.

You will end up in the Diaviks Mine, where The Trickster will welcome you (as a taunt) and flee going deeper within the mine.

Continue to fight your way until you reach the end of the cave which is sealed off by a door, preventing you from going any further.

Blast Open the Door

A waypoint will be marking the location of a pile of explosives (which appear as Exotic Engrams) and you will need to pick one up and toss them at the door.

Defeat The Trickster

The Trickster will be waiting for you and will offer you ammo but this is a trap and will explode when you are in proximity.

Pursue and fight The Trickster until you finish her off, but be careful as she loves to flash around and leave traps.

  • Exotic Engrams are automatically picked up, anything else you find is most likely a bomb left by The Trickster if it can be picked up.
  • The Trickster is fast and will turn invisible and dash around, which means you need to time your attacks, especially with your Super Ability.

Some parts can be skipped such as heading to the end of the mines, following the waypoint is the key to a faster run.


Being a Trickster makes Araskes one annoying enemy and this goes to match with her rushing around the field.

After taking her out, you can proceed to target the other Barons and are now one step closer to completely avenging the death of Cayde-6.
