Engrams are items that decrypt into weapons, armor, and gear. You will find engrams as you play Destiny 2 in various activities. Engrams can also be purchased from Master Rahool at the Tower.
Master Rahool is a cryptarch who deals with decoding engrams. He can be found in the northeastern area of The Tower between Dead Orbit and The Speaker. He can decrypt engrams you have discovered, provided you have enough Glimmer.
Engram decryption requires a small amount of glimmer. Engrams can be deconstructed for a small source of glimmer if they are not items you want to equip or trade to other players.

Where Can I Find Legendary Engrams in Destiny 2?
Legendary engrams decrypt into items between levels 20 and 30, with the most common ones being 23 or 24. They’re a great way to gear up once you hit level cap. Here’s where you can find them:
- Public events take place in the open world, where any player in the same zone can join in. You’ll usually get better loot if you complete them with other players, but they’re way easier when you go in solo. Just fast travel to a destination and keep an eye out for two big yellow triangles on your map. If another player is in the same zone as you, a prompt will appear asking if you want to join them. Engrams almost always drop from completing public events, and there’s no limit on how many times you can repeat the same event.
- When you find a region chest, it’ll be marked on your map with a gold star. Head over to the area it’s located, then look for a prompt that tells you to open your map. Doing so will let you follow the treasure map icon to the chest. It’ll be guarded by some enemies, but they should be much easier to take down than major bosses or other players in Crucible matches, especially if you’re playing solo. Engrams are another guaranteed drop for opening region chests, so make sure to scour the area before you go.
- When you find a Lost Sector in Destiny 2, it’ll be marked on your map with a skull icon. Fast travel to that location and follow the marker until you find the entrance. Once inside, kill off all of the enemies and make sure you pick up everything they drop. Once you’ve done that, the prompt will appear at the end of your gun to place a flag and summon a large boss. You’ll need to put in some real effort to take it down normally, but there’s an easy trick: just run around while firing wildly until you’re out of ammo, then pop a couple of grenades to do some serious damage. You’ll get an engram for killing the boss, plus another one for vanquishing all Lost Sectors in each planet.
These are the most common places to find engrams in Destiny 2. Note that it’s always a good idea to complete Public Events in a group, and you’ll have a much easier time with major encounters if you’re in a fireteam. If possible, try to leave one or two enemies alive for when everyone is ready to take on the final boss, but if that’s not an option then just focus on keeping your distance.
