All High-Value Targets in Destiny 2

Learn where to find each of Destiny 2’s High-Value Targets so you can complete bounties and earn rewards.

High-Value Targets are one of Destiny 2’s world events, rewarding XP and some loot. There are a handful of these enemies to find around the map, but because of their timed-spawns, it can be tough to track them down. If you’re in the market for some High-Value Targets, below you’ll find all their spawn locations.

High-Value Target Locations

There are eight different High-Value Targets in the game. It’s important to note that the following are not High-Value Targets: Lost Sector bosses, roaming Forge bosses, Public Event bosses, yellow health bar enemies. The only ones that count are the following:

  1. Despoiler Captain
  2. Ransack Servitor
  3. Ransack Vandal
  4. Fissure Knight
  5. Storm Minotaur
  6. Storm Hydra
  7. Impact Centurion
  8. Blighted Centurion

The difference is that these enemies will appear during Patrol every few minutes with the message: “A High-Value Target is nearby.” Killing one of these enemies will cause them to drop a chest and the following message will appear onscreen: “A High-Value Target has dropped its plunder.”

Finding all the High-Value Targets in Destiny 2 isn’t too difficult. The main problem with this task is actually waiting for them to spawn, as they can often take several minutes.
