Destiny 2 Lost Lament Quest Walkthrough

Destiny 2 Beyond Light Lost Lament Quest

Lost Lament is a quest in Destiny 2 which allows players to get a powerful melee weapon known as The Lament, an Exotic Sword.

This quest became available with Beyond Light, allowing players to partake in a set of steps to regain a powerful sword which also helps Banshee-44 restore his memories.

Completing this quest will allow players to obtain the powerful sword and complete part of Banshee-44’s lore.

During this quest, you will be visiting various Lost Sectors, if you need to find them, we have a list of the locations of all Europa Lost Sector here.

Quest Steps

Step 1: Locate and Scan 3 Dead Exos On Europa

Banshee-44 needs you to find some of his fellow dead Exos, who are scattered around Europa, you may have already found some if you have been there.

There are a total of 9 dead Exos but for this quest, you will only need to find 3 of them, each can be found in fixed locations.

For a guide on the locations of the Dead Exos in Destiny 2, check out our Dead Exos Locations guide.

Step 2: Locate the Giant Exo hidden in the Exo Facility

If you have been to most of the Lost Sectors in Europa, you may have already entered the Bray Exoscience one, which has two paths.

One of these paths leads to the Lost Sector boss, while another leads to the facility beyond and eventually to the Giant Exo.

Enter the Bray Exoscience and head up the stairs on the right and you will find a path going to another part of the facility, which will eventually end up with you finding the Giant Exo.

Step 3: Prove yourself to the Clovis AI

After meeting with the Giant Exo, who is later known as Clovis Ai, he will not see you as a worthy wielder of the sword and you must prove yourself.

You will need to defeat 100 Vex enemies with swords on Europa, this will only count if you are wielding the sword and kill enemies with it.

A good place to perform this step would be in the Perdition lost sector, as it is occupied by several Vex enemies and should only require 2-3 runs to complete.

Step 4: Complete the Listed Quests

Clovis AI requires that you do a couple of tasks for him as it has been asleep for a long time and the Fallen infest its colony.

You will need to obtain the following quests and complete them before returning:

Reclaiming Europa can be obtained from Zavala, while the Empires Fall and The Dark Priestess quests can be obtained from Variks.

Step 5: Prove Your Worth to the Clovis AI by Completing an Exo Challenge

The Clovis AI requires you to prove your worth once more but this time, with one of their Exo Challenges, which you can unlock by speaking with Variks.

Completing the previous quest should unlock the quest called Old Secrets, New Challenges which is a short way to unlock the Exo Challenges.

Step 6: Defeat Vex with Finishers

Clovis AI believes there are too many Vex present and would like for you to destroy them, requiring you to kill them with finishers.

You will need to destroy Vex using your character’s finisher and reach 100% completion, this can be sped up by using finishers on powerful Vex enemies.

Step 7: Locate the Blade Pieces

Although it says you need to obtain blade pieces, you need to just obtain The Blade of Broken Dreams, which drops during the boss fight.

To find the blade pieces, or The Blade of Broken Dreams you will need to defeat a Transcendent Harpy which will drop the quest item.

You will notice the Transcendent Harpy during the fight and it will also mention when they spawn into the area.

Step 8: Speak to Banshee-44 About the Broken Blade

After you have obtained the broken blade, head back to Banshee-44 to proceed with the quest, which sends you back to Europa.

Step 9: Search Eventide Ruins for an Abandoned Bunker

Banshee-44 sends you off to search for an abandoned bunker in the Eventide Ruins, and this is the Bunker E15 Lost Sector.

Head into the Bunker E15 Lost Sector and complete it to complete this step.

Step 10: Complete the Mission “Reforging the Past”

Clovis Ai is under attack from the Vex and as much as it hates to admit this, your help is now needed, requiring you to save the Giant Exo before it is too late.

You will need to complete the Reforging the Past mission to proceed to the final step.

Step 11: Report Your Discoveries to Banshee-44

Head back to the tower and complete the quest by talking to Banshee-44, who reveals the truth after uncovering his memories with your help.

  • Perdition is one of the best choices for you to go to since you can easily reach it from Charon’s Crossing.
  • If you are unable to proceed with the 3 quests required, check with Zavala and Variks for any missed quests.
  • You will be going against the Vex and Fallen at certain times, but mainly the Vex, keep in mind their weak point is around their stomach.
  • The Broken Blade may not be used but will take up a slot in your special weapons inventory section, be sure to have space.


Having finally driven back the Vex who have attacked the Giant Exo Clovis AI, their facility and colony are finally safe.

Even if Clovis AI blames you for leading the enemies to their location, which you had no intention of doing, you are still thanked by it.

As a reward, the broken blade which has been reforged (now The Lament) is now yours to keep, as a thanks from Clovis AI.

It appears that Banshee-44’s memories have returned and that he was the Giant Exo and Clovis Bray, he thanks you for protecting him.
