I have noticed a few around the place, but so far after collecting a few, they don't appear to do anything. I have to go online to even see how many I have found, and even that seems unsatisfyingly simple.

Dead Ghosts Found: 8

I'm pretty sure I have only found 3. Do story ghosts count as well? If so; I've found 4.

Are they just collectibles?

They are collectables that increase your grimoire score and give you new lore cards to look at within the Destiny mobile app or on Bungie's website.

  • They also have a related Achievement/Trophy if you collect at least 50. There are 62 deactivated ghosts sprinkled throughout the game.

  • Which you can't do anymore if you play on Xbox 360 or Playstation 3
