Each of the Legendary Ghost shells are capable of rolling perks for a single location. For obvious reasons, most of us are probably annoyed when we roll a new Ghost shell with Gunsmith telemetry perks, and no real useful perks, so they get auto-dismantled. Hopefully, we can crowdsource a list of which shells roll perks for which locations, that way, if you’re using your dust to get those perfect Ghost shell rolls (which is what you should be spending that dust on) you’ll know which ones to be looking for when they go on sale.

Every ghost has a set list of perks that can roll in the top slot, as well as perks that roll in the bottom slot. Each rolls independently, and you’ll notice that certain perks will always be in one, but not the other. However, Gunsmith Telemetry Perks can roll in Top and Bottom slots, but will never roll the same Telemetry on both Top and Bottom on the same shell. This leads me to believe that perks are not, in fact, rolled separately, but as a pair, or “perk set”.

There are two types of Ghost Shells. The first is the Crucible shell. It will only ever roll perks related to the Crucible or Gunsmith telemetry. The Kill Tracker ghost is a good example of this one.

Crucible Ghost Perks:

Top Perk Rolls:

  • Arc Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Arc weapon kills]
  • Void Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Void weapon kills]
  • Solar Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Solar weapon kills]
  • Crucible Experience Log [Gain 10% more XP while in the Crucible)

Bottom Perk Rolls:

  • Arc Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Arc weapon kills]
  • Void Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Void weapon kills]
  • Solar Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Solar weapon kills]
  • Crucible Scanner [Chance to obtain additional faction consumables in the Crucible]

The second type is the planetary location ghost. Each shell has an affinity for a single location, be it EDZ, Titan, IO or Nessus. It will ALWAYS roll perks for that specific location, no matter how many instances of that shell you receive, or it can roll Gunsmith telemetry.

Planetary Ghost Perks:

Top Perk Rolls:

  • Arc Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Arc weapon kills]
  • Void Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Void weapon kills]
  • Solar Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Solar weapon kills]
  • (Location) Experience Log [Gain 10% more XP while in (Location)]
  • (Location) Cache Detector [Detect chests within a 30-meter range while on (Location)]
  • (Location) Scanner [Chance to drop additional faction consumables on (Location)]

Bottom Perk Rolls:

  • Arc Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Arc weapon kills]
  • Void Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Void weapon kills]
  • Solar Weapon Analyzer [Generate Gunsmith telemetry data on Solar weapon kills]
  • (Location) Glimmer Scavenger [+10% Glimmer Gain in (Location)]
  • (Location) Resource Detector [Detect resources within a 30-meter range while on (Location)]
  • (Location) Scanner [Chance to drop additional faction consumables on (Location)]

Notice that there are 6 available perks in the top tree, and 6 available perks in the bottom tree on planetary ghosts, as opposed to 4 on crucible ghosts. This makes rolling perfect “glimmer/xp” ghosts particularly dust and time intensive. The boon to this, however, is that once you’ve rolled a particular XP/Glimmer ghost, using a fireteam medallion on that location nets far more XP gain than using a medallion alone, allowing you to get more net worth out of your fireteam medallions, with bright engrams dropping more frequently, replenishing the dust spent rolling those ghosts in the first place. It’s also possible to fully level a Bright Engram using a Fireteam Medallion and Planetary Ghost Shell XP boost perk, even without being on the Flashpoint location (which I believe gives slightly increased XP as well). Stack the XP odds in your favor, Guardians!

Here is a list of all the Eververse ghost shells. I’ve gone ahead and input the information I have for the shells I know locations for, based on the ones I currently have across my characters.

Ghost shell by Location

Crucible Shell List

EDZ Shell List

Nessus Shell List

Please Note: Nessus shells DO NOT affect the Leviathan Raid location. Although it is “attached” to Nessus, it isn’t “on” Nessus and is treated as it’s own location.

Titan Shell List

Io Shell List

Please keep posting your shells with location perks. The more confirmations we have, the stronger the data
