Destiny 2 splash image.

Once you’ve completed the main story in Destiny 2 Beyond Light you will unlock a number of missions to complete in the expansions end-game. These missions range from things like Exotics to simple gear missions and other side quests. One mission you will unlock from the Exo Stranger is the Aspects of Control mission. To complete this mission you need to find a total of five of nine possible Entropic Shards. To learn where to find each of these shards see our guide below.

Note: Be sure you have the Salvation’s Grip exotic before trying to complete this quest. Need to shoot the shards with this weapon.

Go to the end of the Technocrat’s Iron area so you reach the boss room. Inside the boss room the Entropic Shard can be found floating next to the pillar on your right as soon as you enter.

Head to the entrance of Brey Exoscience but don’e go inside. Instead go to the north of it. In this little area where the Forsaken spawn you can find the Entropic Shard sitting in the snow.

Entropic Shard 9: Bottom Floor of Creation

The final ninth shard is located inside the Creation area which is accessible from the Brey Exoscience building. Inside this area head all the way down to the large open green and white room. Just beneath the first walkway in this room you will find the Entropic Shard floating in the air.

To complete the Aspects of Control mission you only need to destroy any five of the nine shards listed above. With that said if you wish to unlock the Studying Darkness Triumph you will want to snag all nine of them. Since collecting a shard scores you a ton of seasonal XP I would recommend grabbing them all since it is easy to do so.
