Guardian Transmat Zone
The initial spawn point for Guardians venturing into the Dreadnaught for Patrol activities is a small hill on the edge of the area, behind which lies open space. Although no enemies spawn in the area as with other transmat zones, the zone is much closer to enemies than other zones and Guardians may occasionally draw their attention. Directly to the front and right of the zone is a slanted section of jaggedly broken wall; players can ascend the wall to gain a high vantage point over the entire Hull Breach area, as well as collect a Calcified Fragment.
To the left of the Guardian Transmat Zone is a large depression distinguished by many pillars that were bent and broken by the Cabal warship that rammed its way into the Dreadnaught. Loot chests may spawn atop some of the pillars. The area may contain a squad of patrolling Cabal, Hive, or both. The tangle of wreckage and power cables adjacent to the transmat zone obscures a doorway leading into a room beneath the transmat zone which contains a Worm hatchery; the hatchery contains a Calcified Fragment, a locked chest, and from time to time may spawn a standard loot chest.
Centrally located in the Hull Breach is a generally flat-topped hill just outside the entrance to Dantalion Exodus VI. Cabal are usually found on this hill in force, either fending off a Hive offensive or keeping watch. Harvesters frequently drop reinforcements in the middle of the hill, while other squads may spawn from within the Dantalion Exodus VI's entry bay. The hill is where powerful enemies summoned by Skyburners Deployment Codes, Skyburners Command Beacons, and Wormsinger Runes will spawn, including Valus Tau'ugh and Blahgrish. Standard loots chests may appear within or just outside the ship's entry bay, where a Patrol mission beacon can also be found.
The border between Cabal and Hive territory in the Hull Breach is generally marked by a trench to the right of the Cabal Hill. On most days, Cabal forces trade shots with Hive over this trench. Guardians can follow the trench itself into a tunnel that leads to the Mausoleum.
A large area to right of the Guardian Transmat Zone and the Trench, the Debris Field is an uneven piece of terrain usually held by Hive. The area features two Patrol mission beacons, one before the double staircases outside the passage that leads to the Hall of Souls, and one up against the far wall. A small room in the middle of the area is a loot chest and enemy spawn location. Another Worm hatchery, entered via a conspicuous doorway to the right of the Hall of Souls passage, is also a loot chest and enemy spawn location, but contains a locked chest as well. Further down the wall in the direction of the Mausoleum and past the Patrol beacon, Guardians can drop down and enter another small room, but this room features a hole in its left wall that leads to a larger room. Beyond that and through another hole is a warren of Worm tunnels that conceal a standard loot chest spawn location, a locked chest, and even a third room with a Calcified Fragment.
Daily Battlefield Changes
The Cabal and Hive are locked in an ongoing battle for dominance in the Hull Breach. The state of this battle, the composition of enemy units in the area, and the identity of the plane-shifting Taken that must be killed to power Agonarch Runes, changes from day to day in a week-long rotation.
