    Destiny 2 Legendary Shards Farming Guide

    Farming Method #1: Dismantle Weapons & Armor:
    • Dismantle Legendary gear to receive 2 Legendary Shards. — Obtain Legendary gear by repeatedly completing the early-game easier Strikes.
    • Dismantle Exotic gear to receive 10 Legendary Shards. — Obtain Legendary gear by repeatedly completing the early-game easier Strikes.

    Note: Remember that when using the above shown Legendary Shard farming spots in Destiny 2, it’s going to take quite a few hours no matter which way you slice it. Bungie can also opt to patch it away at any time.

    Farming Method #2: Do In-game Activities:
    • Reward for completing the Weekly Nightfall Strikes (and Strike bosses as a rare drop).
    • Reward for completing Cayde-6’s Flashpoints.
    • Reward for completing Raid Encounters (and bosses).
    • Reward for finding & opening Raid Chests.
    • Rare reward for finding & opening Planetary Chests in the Patrol Zones.
    • Reward for finding & opening Lost Sector Chests that you discover out on Patrols.

    Note: Visit Cayde-6 at the Farm or the Tower to receive reports on the locations of a couple of Chests.

    I hope these tips will you help you farm lots of Legendary Shards.
