The Sleeper Simulant is returning in the Destiny 2: Warmind expansion, but players looking to grab the exotic weapon will have their work cut out for them. Among other requirements like side missions and kill counts, players looking to unlock the Sleeper Simulant will need to acquire four Resonant Stems and ultimately seek out a number of different Sleeper Nodes spread across various locations.
Combining Resonate Stems creates an Override Frequency, and players can hover over the Override Frequency in the menu to see a string of characters that looks somewhat like a file directory location. Each one of these strings will contain a clue to the location of one of 40 total Sleeper Nodes, i.e. Drift.Gatehouse.Catwalk points players toward the Glacial Drift location around the catwalk near the gatehouse.
The Sleeper Nodes themselves shouldn't be too hard to find assuming the player is in the right area: when one is nearby, a new musical cue will play and the environment lighting will change, letting Hunters know they're close. Here's a look at all of the Destiny 2: Warmind Sleeper Node locations we've found so far.
Olympus Descent Sleeper Nodes
The Descent.Cavern.Warsat node can be found within the sprawling cave near the Glacial Drift, tucked away in a small alcove.
The Descent.Caves.Runes is farther west than the previous node, on a ledge overlooking an archway near the entrance to the Penumbral Depths.

The Dynamo.Deck.Dampener node is located just within Alton — in the first room beyond the staircase, find the node resting in the corner.
The Dynamo.Control.Door node is within the room with the frozen Hive — climb the stairs and turn left to climb another staircase into a new room, the node will be in the corner.
The Dynamo.Coolant.Ventilation node can be found in the ventilation shaft of the room with the frozen Hive. Shoot the vents to open, then follow the path to the node at the end.

The Futurescape.Plaza.Infestation node is located within the room infested with Hive, near the back left-hand wall.
The Futurescape.Terminus.Console node can be found near the terminal in the Core Terminus Lost Sector, just past a stairway in the left-hand room.
The Futurescape.Ridgeline.Waterfall node is hiding beyond the waterfall seen as the player is making their way toward Dynamo Approach.
Aurora Breach Sleeper Nodes
The Aurora.Mindlab.Observation node is situated near the Warmind diamond. Walk up the stairs and turn left into the small room, then fire a weapon at the tile on the floor near the grate to open a passageway. Jump down to find the node inside.
The Aurora.Mindlab.Supplies node is not too far away from the Observation node. Make way through the door into the area outside, then turn right and head up the staircase to find the node sitting behind some crates.

The Mindlab.Conveyor.Junction node is just past the entrance to the Mindlab. Fall over the left side of the passage to land near the massive display; the node will be sitting nearby.

From there, follow the building wall left down the catwalk to find the node sitting at the end of the passage.
The Mindlab.Overhang.Node node is not far from the Elevator Service node. Instead of turning left into the open environment, turn right and follow the ventilation shaft up, then jump onto the platform at the end of the passageway. From there, continue forward to find the node sitting at the end of the path.
The unnamed Mindlab sleeper node can be found just outside the Mindlab on the right-hand side of the building.
