How to unlock Destiny 2 Vex Mythoclast Exotic

The Vex Mythoclast is an extremely powerful Exotic Weapon that has made its return in Destiny 2’s new Season of the Splicer. Here’s how you can get your hands on this rare Fusion Rifle, along with its Catalyst version.

Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer brought a plethora of new content, including new buffs and nerfs, the Vault of Glass Raid and World’s First race, as well as various Exotic weapons like the Vex Mythoclast.

This Exotic Fusion Rifle used to dominate both PVE and PVP modes thanks to its rapid bursts. Now, the weapon is making its return in Season 14.

Here’s everything you need to know, including how to unlock it.

How to get Destiny 2’s Vex Mythoclast in Season of the Splicer

The Vex Mythoclast could initially be obtained as a rare drop after defeating Atheon in the Vault of Glass during the first year of Destiny. This was a challenging task since this was the final boss of the first Raid.

Luckily, the weapon is much easier to obtain in Season 2 since you can collect it as a random drop from normal Raid clears.

This means that you won’t have to complete any particularly difficult challenge after defeating Atheon. Simply put in the time, and cross your fingers for a Mythoclast drop sooner rather than later.

After you’ve gotten the Vex Mythoclast in your hands, you should make your way back to the Vault of Glass Raid and search for five hidden plates. These can be triggered with the Exotic weapon, and here’s where you can find each one:

  • To the right of where you spawn before entering the Vault.
  • In the secret pathway before the Templar fight.
  • Below the pathway to the Templar fight.
  • To the right of the jumping puzzle on the way to Atheon.
  • To the left of the jumping puzzle on the way to Atheon.

You’ll need to defeat some Oracles after finding each of these plates. This isn’t too difficult, since you just need to remember the sequence in which you’re supposed to shoot them.

Once the Catalyst is yours, you’ll be able to generate Orbs with rapid kills while getting improved weapon stability with higher stacks of Overcharge. It will also keep track of how many kills you score.

You can take a look at the returning Exotic Weapon’s stats below:

  • Impact: 33
  • Range: 41
  • Stability: 19
  • Handling: 55
  • Reload Speed: 64
  • Rounds Per Minute: 460
  • Magazine: 25

Season 14 has brought one notable change to the Vex Mythoclast exotic weapon in a new perk. The Temporal Unlimiter will now add stacks of Overcharge to the Fusion Rifle once you score some kills.

When the weapon gets Overcharged, you can swap modes. Toggling the new alt-fire will let you charge more powerful linear fusion shots, so Bungie has some exciting changes ready for players to try out.

When does Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end and Season 15 start?

With Season of the Splicer well underway, we need to start looking ahead to Season 15 and what bungie may have planned for Destiny players.

destiny 2 season 15

Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion continued with the launch of Season of the Splicer, but Season 15 will be here before we know it. Here’s everything we know about the next season of Destiny 2 so far.

Season of the Splicer has proven to be a bit of bumper season for Destiny 2 with some ground-breaking features added to the game. The long-awaited and promised Transmog has finally debuted in Destiny 2 with players now encouraged to hoard all the Synthstrand, Synthcord, and Synthweave to do so.

Not only that, but we also saw the return of the first-ever Destiny Raid – Vault of Glass. The season as a whole carried on from where Season of the Chosen left off by adding more Weekly Challenges and providing regular updates, and we expect all of this to continue in Season 15.

When will Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer end?

Each season of Destiny is a lengthy one, typically lasting three months in total. Bungie has given no sign that Season of the Splicer is going to be any different.

With this in mind, we can expect the latest season of Destiny 2 to finish up on August 24. With many more Weekly Challenges and extra content to be drip-fed into the game, Guardians still have a lot more cool stuff to look forward to.

When will Destiny 2 Season 15 start?

As usual, unless Bungie has something gigantic planned or has severe issues with their services, the downtime will be minimal at best.

So Guardians can expect to gear up and take to the terrain on either the same day that the Season finishes – August 24 – or at a push August 25.

Crossplay finally coming to Destiny 2 Season 15

Originally announced in the February 25, 2021 Bungie blog update, crossplay will finally be landing in Destiny 2 which will be music to the ears of many.

When discussing some future content updates such as the Witch Queen being pushed back to 2022, the team talked about how Crossplay would be implemented.

Crossplay is coming to the masses in Season 15. We’ll be doing some internal rollouts and alpha tests in Season 14 to prepare for a widespread launch this fall. With Crossplay, you’ll be able to play with all your friends no matter what platform you call home.

And don’t worry, we won’t be matching console and PC players together in the Crucible unless PC players specifically invite their console friends to play with them in the PC Crucible pools.” 

Other major features in Destiny 2 Season 15

In the same blog post, the team also dropped some additional info regarding changes they hope to make happen in Season 15.

Here are the proposed Destiny 2 Season 15 changes:

  • “We will be addressing “three-peeking” in Trials and Competitive. In these modes, emotes will be disabled and players will be unable to pull out any third person weapon that doesn’t have ammo
  • We are also looking at universal adjustments to Stasis by increasing damage reduction when frozen to provide more survivability for the victim
  • We will also focus on Light subclasses and release a set of targeted buffs to our most underutilized specializations
  • We will also be looking to adjust overall ability usage rates to make sure guns and gunplay are always key to success in the Crucible
  • We will introduce our first round of Legendary Stasis Energy and Power weapons”

As we start getting closer to the Season’s official unveiling, we’ll be able to update this page with crucial and essential information.
