Cabal Gold in Destiny 2

The latest Destiny 2 update has brought some major changes to the game, and this includes a new in-game currency called Cabal Gold. It’s quite rare, so here’s how you can earn it in Season 13.

Destiny 2’s brand new Season of the Chosen expansion is finally here, and is expected to continue until May 11, 2021. The latest season has brought a plethora of brand new in-game content such as strikes, weapons, vendors and more.

In order to unlock a few of the neat new features, you’ll have to gather the new in-game currency known as Cabal Gold. This is incredibly rare and difficult to find, but there are a few ways for you to obtain it for yourself.

Cabal Gold can be used to purchase items in Destiny 2

Cabal Gold can be used to unlock a new item called the Hammer of Proving, which will allow you to smash open chests at the end of Battlegrounds matches, gain Umbral Engrams, and receive new upgrades.

The best way to obtain Cabal Gold is by completing certain activities in Destiny 2, including Crucible, Gambit, Public events, Playlist Strikes, Nightmare Hunts, and The Blind Well. The better you play, the higher your chances of getting that payout.

Another method is to play through Dungeons and Raids, but these are currently experiencing a bug that is keeping players from receiving the currency. For that reason, we recommend that you stick with the other activities for now.

If you wish to improve the Hammer of Proving, then you’ll need to earn a total of 84 Cabal Gold Pieces, and then bring it over to H.E.L.M, which is the central base of operations during this season. You can learn how to unlock and improve the Hammer in our guide.

It’s worth keeping in mind that even completing the game’s activities successfully won’t guarantee that you will receive any Cabal Gold pieces. They’re difficult to obtain unless you get extremely lucky while playing.

Bungie’s Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen is now available on the Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, and Google Stadia.

Ager’s Scepter in Destiny 2

Destiny 2’s Season of the Lost has added a new Exotic Weapon called Ager’s Scepter, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including how to unlock it.

Destiny 2 has a wide assortment of powerful weapons that you can take with you into battle, and Season of the Lost has added some new and veteran ones like the Lorentz Drive exotic and Darkest Below.

Ager’s Scepter is an Exotic Weapon that was featured prominently in the Season 15 reveal trailer, and you can now unlock it in the game. This guide will help you get your hands on this Exotic trace rifle.

Getting this Destiny 2 weapon isn’t going to be easy, since you’ll need to complete a few quests first. First, you need to get through the intro quest to Season 15, Wayfinder’s Voyage.

This requires you to find Osiris before you work with Mara Sov and Petra Venj. You’ll have to do a lot of traveling through the H.E.L.M, as well as to Trostland, the Shattered Realm, and The Tower.

After you’ve spoken with Ikora Rey and completed the quest, you can accept Tracing the Stars from the Wayfinder’s Compass in the H.E.L.M.

Astral Skew in Destiny 2

These weekly quests require you to collect objects known as Skews from different parts of the Dreaming City. These can be particularly tricky to find as they are spread out all over the city.

Here’s a breakdown of each week’s quest:

  1. Week One: Divalian Mists/Spine of Keres
  2. Week Two: The Strand/Aphelion’s Rest
  3. Week Three: Rheasilvia/Harbinger’s Seclude
  4. Week Four: Confluence/Harbinger/Gardens of Esila

The Caliburn Gatehouse in Destiny 2

A Hollow Coronation is much easier to complete than the previous quest. This tasks you with depositing the Astral Skews that you collected while completing Tracing the Stars.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Head back to the H.E.L.M
  2. Travel through the same gate that you previously used to get to Mara Sov’s chambers
  3. Once you arrive at Caliburn Gatehouse, deposit the Astral Skews
  4. Head back through the portal to collect your reward at the Wayfinder’s Compass.

In order to collect the Scepter, you’ll also have to complete some Astral Alignments, Strikes, and get Mara Sov to craft a Noble Seal for you. Once that’s done, you can finally claim Ager’s Scepter.
