Where is Site 6? How to get to Destiny: Rise of Iron's most elusive location

Destiny: Rise of Iron players are frantic to find Site 6.


Site 6 is a location you'll visit in the main story questline of Destiny: Rise of Iron, but you'd be forgiven for forgetting that - and how to get there. It's not easy to orient yourself with Splicers firing at you constantly, is it?

You'll want to visit Site 6 during your quest to track down all the Iron Medallions for the quest Beauty of Destruction - a key step in the Echoes of the Past Exotic questline for the Year 3 and Iron Gjallarhorn.

So how do you get back to Site 6? basically, you need to follow the tunnels from the Archon's Forge arena. Need a bit more help than that? Here you go:

  • 1. Spawn into the Plaguelands Patrol zone and head to Archon's Keep
    You start standing above a path leading left or right. Take the right path and zoom through Giant's Husk and Doomed Sea, and Archon's Keep is the next zone you come to. If in doubt, bring up your Ghost to check your location, and watch for the transition notices as you cross borders.
  • 2. Enter the Archon's Forge Arena
    Archon's Fore is a public event arena in the middle of the Archon's Keep zone. From anywhere in the area you should be able to see the looming central structure which houses it. Circle it to find the entrance. Follow the corridors inside to reach the arena.
  • 3. Look for a tunnel from Archon's Forge to the Warrens
    Drop down into the Archon's Forge arena (you might have to wait for an event to end) and hug the left wall. Eventually you'll come to the crack in the wall shown below. Close up you'll see you can climb in and follow it to a new zone called the Warrens.


  • 4. Find the tunnel leading from the Warrens to Site 6
    As soon as your HUD shows that you're in the Warrens, look for a ledge dropping down right in front of you. As soon as you fall down this, turn left and hug the left wall to find another tunnel. You can see it in the screenshot below.


  • 5. Bear left in the tunnel to find a small opening leading to Site 6
    Kewep your eyes peeled (and your brightness up!) as you move through the second tunnel to ensure you don't miss the tiny entrance to Site 6. You need to crawl and make sharp turns to get through this path.


  • 6. Drop down into Site 6
    At the end of the tiny, twisty tunnel, you'll be in Site 6. Hooray!

Make sure you grab the Iron Medallion in Site 6 - surely that's what you came for?
