Ghost Scans

There are hundreds of Ghost Scans and we can’t easily compile a list of them like we can with missions and strikes, so if you would like to help us with Ghost Scans, follow the above guide but submit your new post to the Ghost Scan Transcripts category and update one of the following tracker posts.

I am working on the Red War Missions right now. I have the first three missions edited, just need to transcribe them. They should be done over the weekend. Depends how back the hurricane is.

You have to put your name next to the ones you are doing. Otherwise people will end up doing the same thing as you, and all your hard work will be for nothing.

Just to add to this, don’t put your name against lots of them, as this will block other people. Pick one, put your name next to it, finish it, pick another. :+1:


We need to expand Shard of the Traveller. Its different for each subclass

@baxter can we generate a list of Adventures to transcribe as well? Or will we have to create one ourselves?


I didn’t notice a difference in lines for the new Subclasses, only that Voidwalker and the others have quests.

Spark is the same accross all the 3 classes and is part of the main campaign. It’s the mission when en we get our light back.

Shard of the traveller is different for each of the 6 subclasses it can be played for. It’s the one where we get our old classes back.

Two different missions. Same place, different story.

The first subclass mission for each class has the same Ghost dialogue, but different “Lessons”. I went through and recorded all of the individual lessons for Voidwalker and Striker, but I don’t have a complete transcript for the Ghost. I’ll post that footage tonight.

I can’t record videos but I can transcribe if need be. But the videos are a major part so…

I feel kind of silly asking this, but how do I edit the post? I want to do some work! :slight_smile:

On the bottom right corner of the post, there is an edit button.

Hmm. I see the button on my post but not on the post with the Storyline Mission list.

I suspect that, because your account is very new, you’re not able to edit posts yet! I didn’t realise this. Let me look into it, but you may have to wait before that capability is allowed. Sorry! :frowning:

No problem, but I am going to get started on the Shard of the Traveler (Striker) quest then.

I can edit your name into it for you.

I have some information about dialog that I have not seen be discussed anywhere, that I would like to throw out there.

In Destiny 2 there are a lot of “nods” to returning players from Destiny 1, these nods come in the form of alternative dialog. I can give a specific example by talking about the mission “Spark”. Me and my brother have started playing Destiny 2 together, him being a brand new player with a brand new PSN account where as I have played since dark below. While playing the mission Spark at the same time, in the same room, I herd a discrepancy between our dialogs. When you see the Fallen for the first time in the mission and the ghost says “Those are not any house colors we have ever seen” in his game it said something along the lines of " Those were the Fallen, scavengers that worship machines"

These sort of alternative dialog options happen all throughout the game, we have noticed. Another example would be when Cayde is talking about the Tank. “Are we talking Gjallarhorn special, or Ikora philosophy lesson special?” he has said in all three character playthroughs of mine, but in my brothers it just says “How special are we talking?”.

There are several more I can think of put this post is long already, please forgive me, I have never posted on a form before and can not provide evidence because I am at work. Let me know if I have broken any rules, I just really wanted to share this. Thank you!


Is the European Dead Zone section the time we fly in and meet Devrim before Combustion? If so I have that transcribed.

I can do the Nightstalker shard mission, but my account is too new to edit the post. Can someone add my name there for me?
