Destiny 2's Witch Queen expansion introduced a new title for Guardians to earn. Gumshoe is a title tied to Savathun's Throne World and its associated activities. Complete Master campaign missions, Wellspring runs, and more to make progress towards the Gumshoe title.

If you're looking for a casual title that is more focused on collectible hunts than skill, Gumshoe is right up your alley. Collecting Moths, destroying Darkness Fragments, and crafting weapons will complete most of this title's Triumphs. Let's go over how to complete all Triumphs tied to Destiny 2's Gumshoe title and give some tips on how to best complete them.

Throne World Collector

Throne World Collector: Complete the Throne World badge.

You'll need to obtain all 21 items from Savathun's Throne World. Most of these weapons are obtained from Fynch or Throne World activities. All items tied to this badge are listed below:

Master Of Truth

Master of Truth: Complete any campaign mission on Master difficulty.

After you complete the Witch Queen campaign, you'll need to complete a few Evidence Board quests to unlock the weekly campaign playlist in the Throne World. This playlist selects one of the Witch Queen's campaign missions and lets you replay them on higher difficulty settings, the highest of which being Master.

Master campaign missions feature multiple Champions, Match Game, locked loadouts, and additional modifiers. Matchmaking is disabled for Master difficulty, so consider getting a fireteam together before attempting this. It is possible to solo these missions with the right loadout and strategy. Check out our Witch Queen hub for in-depth walkthroughs on every campaign mission on Legendary and Master difficulty. You only need to complete one Master mission for this Triumph.

Buddy Up

Buddy Up: Claim all Rank rewards from Fynch.

Fynch is the planetary vendor tied to Savathun's Throne World. As you open chests and complete activities in the Throne World, you'll earn reputation with Fynch that eventually grants rank-up rewards. These rewards grant armor pieces, upgrade materials, and even unlock certain destination playlists.

As for earning reputation with Fynch, your best method is to farm the Wellspring activity. Complete the Witch Queen campaign and finish a few Evidence Board quests to unlock this activity. Master Wellspring grants the most progress, although it's locked behind one of Fynch's rank-up rewards and lacks matchmaking. If farming Wellspring gets boring, you can also farm planetary materials and chests to earn a small bit of reputation. Be sure you have the right Ghost mods equipped before doing this.

Hardware Of The Throne

Hardware of the Throne: Craft all Wellspring and Throne World weapons.

There are nine weapons tied to the Wellspring and Savathun's Throne World that can be crafted. Each weapon becomes craftable upon using a certain number of Deepsight Resonant or 'red box' variants of that weapon type, usually five. For example, the Father's Sins Sniper Rifle requires you to complete the Resonant objective of five Father's Sins red box weapons. Once complete, you can head to The Enclave and craft one yourself.

Each weapon required for this Triumph can be found below alongside their drop source.

Report: REVERSE-LURE: Complete "Report: REVERSE-LURE."

Report: REVERSE-LURE is an Evidence Board quest that unlocks after you complete the Witch Queen campaign and all other Evidence Board quests. Completing this quest grants one of three class-exclusive Exotic Glaives. This quest has 11 steps, although some of them are simply speaking to NPCs or grabbing an item. Here are the important steps:

  1. Place the Osmic Fragment in the Throne World
  2. Retrieve the Osmic Fragment from the Lucent Brood who stole it.
  3. Return to the Evidence Board.
  4. Craft the Exotic Glaive.

The quest itself is rather straightforward and shouldn't take more than a few minutes to complete. The grindy part is the prerequisite of needing every other Evidence Board quest completed. This requires you to earn quite a few Resonance weapons while getting acclimated with the Preservation and Wellspring activities. If you haven't played Wellspring since the expansion launched, Resonance weapon drop rates are much more generous now and have bad luck protection, so finishing this quest should no longer be locked behind RNG.

Of Queens And Worms

Of Queens and Worms: Complete the Exotic quest "Of Queens and Worms."

Of Queens and Worms is unlocked upon completing The Witch Queen campaign. We'll link to a more thorough quest guide in the future, but the quest itself is fairly straightforward. Here's what you'll need to do:

  1. Complete the Birthplace of the Vile strike.
  2. Collect a Cryptoglyph rune in the Temple of the Cunning.
  3. Defeat 100 Scorn inside the Throne World.
  4. Place the Worm in all three of the Throne World's Lost Sectors, each Lost Sector having a different prerequisite objective
    1. Sepulcher Lost Sector – Defeat 100 Scorn (previous objective).
    2. Metamorphosis – Locate the Cryptoglyph rune in the Queen's Bailey.
    3. Extraction – Locate the Cryptoglyph in the Alluring Curtain.
  5. Complete the Parasitic Pilgrimage mission.
  6. Most of the steps are simple fetch-quest objectives that ask you to visit parts of the Throne World. The final mission, Parasitic Pilgrimage, is a remix of The Ghosts campaign mission—at least part of it. Complete the mission to unlock the Parasite Grenade Launcher, finishing the quest.

    Lepidopterist: Collect and mount all unique Lucent Moths in the Throne World.

    Savathun's Throne World has ten hidden Lucent Moths you must find for this Triumph. They behave similarly to the Europa Penguin collectibles and the Moon's Jade Rabbits if you've done those collectible hunts. You can collect all ten Moths in one play session, meaning this Triumph won't take very long to complete. Check out our Lucent Moth guide for all ten Moth locations.

    No Peeking

    No Peeking: Close all Darkness Rifts in the Throne World.

    The Throne World destination has ten Darkness Rifts you must destroy for this Triumph. You must use the Parasite Grenade Launcher to break these rifts. Damage yourself with Parasite, and you'll be able to break the Darkness Rift while the Worm Byproduct buff is active.

    Each Darkness Rift location can be found in our Darkness Rift guide.

    World Champions

    World Champions: Defeat Champions in Throne World Lost Sectors on any difficulty.

    You'll need to defeat 50 Champions in Throne World Lost Sectors for this Triumph. Fortunately, that's fairly easy to do since most Throne World Lost Sectors have two or three Champions per run—even more if you're playing on Master. We recommend farming the Lost Sectors on Legendary since they have fewer modifiers and a more lenient Power requirement.

    As for general Champion tips:

    • Barrier: Use Duskfield Grenades to stunlock them. They'll get frozen whenever they attempt to deploy a barrier. We also recommend using Arbalest for non-Stasis users since it one-taps Barrier Champion shields.
    • Overload: Use Divinity or any Overload mods that work instantly. Overload SMG and Auto Rifle are too inconsistent to rely on.
    • Unstoppable: Leviathan's Breath will decimate Unstoppable Champions starting in Season 17. For now, it works as a solid anti-Unstoppable weapon that doesn't take up your Kinetic or Energy slots.
