What is Baryon Bough & How to Get it in Destiny 2 Forsaken

Recommended Videos

Destiny 2 Forsaken adds two new areas into the usual standard mix of Mars, Mercury, Earth, Io, and company. The Tangled Shore and The Dreaming City are where players will be spending a lot of their time throughout the new expansion. With new areas, of course, come new planetary materials. These special materials are of extra importance as of the Forsaken expansion, as they are now needed to infuse up old gear to higher power levels. It’s one of the many ways Destiny 2 is channeling its inner Destiny 1 with the Forsaken expansion. Baryon Bough is one of such of those new materials. Here’s what Baryon Bough is and how to get it in Destiny 2 Forsaken.

You can find Baryon Bough in The Dreaming City and is a reward for many activities such as patrols and public events. You can also find them quite easily out in the field, or in caches. While out on their own, they appear as purple sparkly dots. It is pretty hard to miss, stands out well, and is probably one of the easier materials to farm. Lots of weapons and armor will require Baryon Bough, so make sure to get a nice healthy stock of it while you’re out and about in The Dreaming City.

Remember, you can get Baryon Bough fast if you run out while infusing by equipping a ghost that has cache and/or combo scan while exploring the new sights and sounds. This lets you get as much as two Baryon Bough per loot, and with the ghost scanner, you can find caches extremely quickly by just running around. They are everywhere!

That does it for what it is and how to get Baryon Bough in Destiny 2 Forsaken. Be sure to check out our wiki guide for even more FAQs answered and tips and tricks.
