Beyond Light has new statues to locate, following in the same footsteps as the Forsaken and Shadowkeep expansions. These appear to be weekly additions, so let’s check out how to find penguins in Destiny 2: Beyond Light.

Shadowkeep has awesome space bunnies, Forsaken has mystical cats, and Beyond Light has rotund penguins. It’s always fun finding collectibles and given the vast nature of Europa, these are going to be a little tough to track down.

Given the irregularity with which the statues are being found, it seems like Bungie is only adding one per week. Essentially creating a scavenger hunt for players to engage in. As time goes on, we’ll continually update you with additional penguins and give you happy feet.

Here we’ll show you how can find all the penguins in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, and what to do with them.

Where are the penguins?

There were ten rabbits and eight cats in the two aforementioned expansion packs. Given how big Beyond Light is for Bungie (in terms of scope and importance), there could very well end up being significantly more penguins.

Let’s see where those pesky penguins are hiding then.

Penguin #1 – Cadmus Ridge

It will have a shield guarding it initially.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on where to find it:

  1. Spawn at Charon’s Crossing.
  2. Head to Cadmus Ridge.
  3. Climb up and head into an icy gorge.
  4. Fight and defeat the Vex and a Vex Wyvern (you’ll need to have your power level of 1200 for this).
  5. Pick up the penguin statue by the wall in the back.

Penguin #2 – Well of Infinitude

It will be hidden in this alcove, behind another barrier.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on where to find it:

  1. Spawn on Europa.
  2. Go to Asterion Abyss.
  3. Make your way down the right-hand side of the area and head into the caves – where you used Stasis/found Darkness.
  4. Enter the Well of Infinitude.
  5. Progress until you reach a large icy room – contains Hydra.
  6. Find the penguin statue behind a barrier/shield.

What do you do with them?

So you’ve got all these fabulous winter birds with nothing to do with them. Where do they go?

Let’s update you then.

The first penguin goes here, the rest also go in this room.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on where to find it:

  1. Return to Variks.
  2. Use the door right of where you’d normally go.
  3. Find a room with a stack of papers and prompts to place the penguin toys.
  4. Activate the prompt to place the penguin.
  5. It will now be added to your collection.

You will need to carry this out for the rest of the penguins too, as their locations are in this room too.

Great news, you now own your own collection of fabulous birds. We will be sure to update this as more penguins are added to the game and show you how to find those penguins in Destiny 2: Beyond Light as well.

Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris delayed again

Despite the new PVE content released in Beyond Light, the Destiny 2 expansion also led to a delay for the game’s top PVP mode: Trials of Osiris. Originally delayed until November 27, Bungie has once again pushed back the activity’s launch in Beyond Light.

The core of the Destiny franchise has always revolved around one thing: the chase for new loot. Since the release of the original Destiny, developer Bungie has aimed to provide players with interesting and powerful gear to grind for.

While the bulk of content in Destiny has always been PVE-related – Strikes, seasonal activities, and Raids – the franchise has maintained a strong PVP player base as well. For those who spend their time in the Crucible, Trials of Osiris is the top-tier activity to look forward to since its reintroduction in Season of the Worthy.

Following the release of Beyond Light, Destiny 2’s pinnacle PVP activity has now seen not one but two separate delays. The game’s community is once again expressing their frustration with Bungie’s handling of the popular 3v3 mode.

Destiny 2 Beyond Light Stasis Subclasses
Destiny 2’s new Stasis subclasses have been giving players headaches in PVP.

Trials of Osiris delayed again

With the release of Beyond Light, developer Bungie introduced Stasis subclasses into Destiny 2. While most players enjoy the new Darkness-based abilities, the game’s PVP community has been less than thrilled with the performance of Stasis in the Crucible.

Bungie’s first official response to Stasis in PVP came when the developer announced the original delay of Trials only two days after Beyond Light’s release. Then, on November 27 – the same day that Trials of Osiris was supposed to make its debut in Beyond Light – Bungie once again announced a delay in the mode’s release via their support account on Twitter.

While Bungie community manager dmg04 indicated the delay was due to another Stasis-related issue, players listed off other potential causes including issues with swords in the Crucible, and even a bug that turn players invisible.

Community frustrated with second delay

For some of the Destiny 2 community, patience has run out since the original delay. Many prominent content creators have expressed their frustration regarding Bungie’s handling of Trials in Beyond Light.

Destiny 2 streamers GernaderJake and Gigz, both of whom participate in Trials of Osiris regularly, voiced their concerns with how Bungie is handling the game’s top PVP activity.

GernaderJake stated his belief that there were better ways for Bungie to address the issues instead of simply disabling Trials of Osiris entirely.

Gigz called out the developer for their lack of attention to PVP – something Bungie has specifically mentioned in the past when discussing their design philosophy in regards to the Crucible.

Although many of the responses were negative, some tried to put a more positive spin on things. Destiny 2 YouTuber KackisHD joked that Bungie continues to delay Trials because the game mode’s reward location – The Lighthouse on Mercury – was vaulted when Beyond Light released.

When is Trials coming to Beyond Light?

While Bungie confirmed a return date for Trials of Osiris after the first delay, the developer did not confirm when the mode would make its return in their announcement on November 27.

Players should keep an eye on Bungie’s social media for further updates on the return of Trials.
