King's Fall Oryx extra chest symbol locations - Destiny 2

Find hidden symbols in the King's Fall raid to spawn an extra chest after the Oryx fight.


The King’s Fall raid has several hidden symbols that can spawn an extra chest. By finding the three correct symbols and shooting them, players can spawn an extra chest after the Oryx fight that drops a guaranteed red border weapon once a week. For players that are farming weapon patterns, spawning the Oryx extra chest is important.

Note: If you are in an encounter, activate the symbol, and then wipe, you may need to activate the symbol again. Check each symbol after encounters to make sure none were accidentally activated (like the Warpriest symbol).

Use this table to get a quick idea of where each symbol spawns. Click the image to jump to a detailed explanation or scroll down.

How to spawn Oryx extra chest

If you already know how to spawn the extra chest at Oryx, scroll down further for detailed explanations of the symbol locations. To spawn the bonus chest after the Oryx boss fight, you must first find and remember the symbols that appear beneath the Hive portal platform in the first relic encounter.

Check below the Hive portal before you go through to find your three reference symbols.

Before you start the encounter, go beneath the Hive platform, face the starting location, and remember the three symbols that appear. These three symbols will be hidden in specific locations in the raid. You must find the node that corresponds with the symbols and shoot them.

There are nine locations in the King’s Fall raid where these symbols will appear. To input the correct symbols, shoot the node to make the rune appear. If you shoot the incorrect node, shoot it again to turn the rune “off”. When you turn on the third correct symbol, a message will appear on-screen saying: The runes accept your offering. You will now receive an extra chest after defeating Oryx. This chest is available once per week and is guaranteed to drop a red border weapon.

Note that you must complete the raid in one go to get the chest. You cannot go to Orbit. You cannot find three symbols and then leave. It must be one continuous run with a successful clear.

Kings’ Fall symbol locations

There are nine symbols in the King’s Fall raid. You must find the three symbols that match the three you saw beneath the Hive platform. These runes appear throughout the entire raid, all the way into the final room.

Swinging prisons

The first symbol is at the swinging prisons after going through the Hive portal. Stand on the first one, turn around, and spot the symbol beneath the ledge.

Tomb ship secret chest

The next symbol is above the door at the secret chest in the Hive jumping puzzle. After clearing the Hive ships, make your way to where you must activate the plates and travel on one final ship. Instead of passing through the barrier, jump off to the left and climb the diagonal strut up to the hole in the wall. The door will only open if two people stand on the plates. If you don’t manage to make it to the secret chest, you might be able to shoot it from the lower area with a sniper rifle.

The seventh symbol is located in the piston wall jumping puzzle beside the secret chest. To find this room, work your way along the wall and out to the pillar with the small platforms attached to it. Hold out your ghost to see a hidden path. Move along the path to make the platforms appear. At the top is a hole in the wall, through which is the secret chest and symbol.

Return to Oryx symbol table.

After you shoot the three correct symbols and receive the on-screen message that the offering has been accepted, all that’s left to do is defeat Oryx.  The chest will spawn in front of the boss chest and will drop one Deepsight (red border) weapon a week.
