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 players know they're close. Here's a look at all of the Destiny 2: Warmind Sleeper Node locations. Use the links below to jump to the appropriate section:
After unlocking Sleeper Simulant, make sure you get the Sleeper Simulant Exotic Catalyst!
