Every Destiny 2 Calus bobblehead location on the Leviathan
Find all the Destiny 2 Calus Bobbleheads hidden throughout the Castellum, Pleasure Gardens, Royal Pools, and the Sever weekly missions inside the Derelict Leviathan for rewards. With Season of the Haunted, Emperor Calus’ planet-eating ship, the Leviathan, is back and infested with disgusting fungal growths. Although, plenty of loot, including some golden bobbleheads of Calus himself, remains on board. You can find the latest of these Bobbleheads in the new Sever – Forgiveness mission. Here’s where you need to look to find the Destiny 2 Calus Bobbleheads.
There are currently seven Destiny 2 Calus Bobbleheads available for you to get. After retrieving a bobblehead, you’ll be told to “detain” it on the HELM. This just means you need to visit the new Crown of Sorrow wing of the HELM and go to the bay on the left where the Hive Tombship is. You’ll find various sets of pages that the bobbleheads can be “proudly displayed” on – how very opulent.
Finding all Calus Bobbleheads will complete the ‘#1 Fan’ Triumph and unlock the Eidolon Shell for your Ghost, although not all the bobbleheads are available yet, so check back after each Destiny 2 weekly reset.
Be sure to use any Destiny 2 Opulent Keys you find aboard the Leviathan along the way
For the Castellum Bobblehead, you need to unlock the door that is immediately to the left of the Castellum’s landing zone corridor. We're not exactly sure how you get this to open, but it seems like it is guaranteed to open if you kill two Scorn Night Terrors during the final boss fight of a Tier 3 Nightmare Containment event. Killing the Night Terrors will cause two lockdown protocols to be lifted after completing the event, allowing you to access the secret room with the Calus Bobblehead inside and one random secret room within the Castellum. The doors for these rooms are unlocked by pulling a nearby lever that beeps. Once you've opened the correct door on the left of the Castellum, there will be a chest for you to loot and a Calus Bobblehead on the ground on the right. Make sure you don't miss it!
From the Castellum, you can reach the Leviathan’s Pleasure Gardens by heading to the area that’s roughly in the center with the golden War Beast statues nearby. There are steps that lead down into a lower area and a doorway between two massive pillars. Head through this door and follow the path to eventually emerge into the Pleasure Gardens.
As you arrive in the gardens, you’ll spot a giant, golden statue of Emperor Calus covered in fungus on top of a large podium. Jump up to this podium and look behind the statue to find the bobblehead.
To reach the Royal Pools from the Castellum, go through the doorway on the left side that’s flanked by some large pillars and dark banners with a golden sun on them. Follow the path and you’ll reach the Royal Pools shortly.
Once you’ve reached the Royal Pools, head straight to the back-right corner of the area to find a pit in the fungus that you can jump into to reach part of the Leviathan’s underbelly. Explore this area until you find a narrow tunnel lit up with yellow lights. At the end of this tunnel, you’ll find the Royal Pools Calus Bobblehead in a dark nook on the left.
To find this Destiny 2 Bobblehead, start the Sever – Shame mission, a new weekly mission for Season of the Haunted – you’ll get access to this mission as you progress through the Bound in Sorrow seasonal quest and the activity node to start it can be found next to the Derelict Leviathan on the Moon.
Progress through the mission normally until you reach the point where you must activate four manual overrides to escape the lockdown. As part of this objective, you need to carry a large Cabal wrench across the area to deactivate a wall of electricity that blocks the way. Once you’ve used the wrench, jump to the narrow corridor and instead of jumping to the override switch, jump up to the horizontal pipe on the right. From there, platform your way up onto a walkway. You’ll find the Calus Bobblehead sitting on top of some boxes on this walkway.
Head into the new Sever – Reconciliation week 2 mission to find the fifth Destiny 2 Calus Bobblehead. Progress through the beginning of the mission normally until you emerge from the narrow ventilation shafts into the Armory. Turn to your right and walk to the far end of the corridor to spot a third ventilation shaft.
You should be able to hear the ticking of the bobblehead by now, so crouch and walk into the vent and, when you reach the dead end, turn left. You’ll find the little, golden Calus bobbling away in front of a fan.
After you’ve navigated your way through the Leviathan underbelly and greenhouse room with the hanging plants, you’ll come across a locked door and you’ll need to place a Ritual Amplifier nearby. Place the amplifier, head through the door, and then immediately turn left. You’ll spot a dead end with some large crates. Look behind the crates and there will be a nook that the Calus Bobblehead is hiding in.
You can find this Destiny 2 Calus Bobblehead towards the end of the Sever Forgiveness mission. When you get to the large tube-like room with the Egregore Spores at the end, you need to jump to the platform with orange lights on it. Towards the end of the platform, you’ll spot a large, round container on the right and the bobblehead will be on top of this container, so climb up and collect it.
