Destiny 2 Monument to Lost Lights

You can only get the Destiny 2 Last Word Hand Cannon from the Monument to Lost Lights weapon vault in the Tower. This vendor is located on the far right side of the Courtyard landing zone.

  • 1x Ascendant Shard

You can obtain Glimmers easily, and Etheric Spirals are given as rewards for every bounty you complete for Spider at The Tangled Shore. You can find both Exotic Ciphers and the Ascendant Shards prevent more of a challenge.

However, Exotic Ciphers and Ascendant Shards are a bit more difficult to acquire, and we’ll go over everything you need to know about collecting them.

How to collect Destiny 2 Exotic Ciphers

Xur the Merchant in Destiny 2

You can obtain Exotic Ciphers by either reaching rank 55 in the current Season Pass or purchasing them from Xur the merchant. You can still receive them as a seasonal rank reward even if you don’t have the Season Pass.

If you’ve already collected a seasonal cipher previously, you’ll need to complete Xur’s Xenology quest to earn another. This requires you to complete 21 strikes, or win matches in the Crucible or Gambit.

How to collect Destiny 2 Ascendant Shards

Banshee-44 in Destiny 2

If you already have the paid Season Pass then you’ll get Ascendant Shards after reaching season ranks 80, 85, and 94. Alternatively, you can also purchase Shards from either Banshee-44 or Ada-1.

Here’s the general cost for each Shard:

  • 10 Enhancement Prisms
  • 100 planetary materials
  • 50,000 Glimmer

It’s worth keeping in mind that the planetary materials required for these Shards are random and change depending on the day. If you’re still on the hunt, then you’ll have a few different options for unlocking Ascendant Shards.

You can either complete platinum runs of Grandmaster Nightfall Strikes, make a flawless run in Trials of Osiris, or reach 10,000 reputation with either Zavala, Lord Shaxx, the Drifter, or Saint-14.

Once you’ve gathered everything you need, simply head back to The Monument to Lost Lights to collect the Last Word Hand Cannon. You can now use this weapon to cause some serious pain to your enemies.

Destiny 2’s Planestrider emblem is a new addition thanks to Season of the Lost, but players are confused as to how to get their hands on it. Our simple guide will walk you through the process.

Customization is a big part of many modern games with a ridiculous amount of cosmetic items for players to choose from almost being mandatory. Destiny 2 is no stranger to this, and the Planestrider is a cool-looking emblem for players to add to their collection.

Each new Destiny season adds a hefty amount of new goodies for players to collect and browse through, especially emblems. The Planestrider emblem is one such item that players can get in Season of the Lost.

Find out how to claim one for yourself, using our guide, in Destiny 2 Season of the Lost.

How to unlock Planestrider emblem in Destiny 2

To unlock the Planestride emblem in Destiny 2 Season of the Lost, players must obtain the Vanguard ornament for the Season 15 ritual weapon to complete the “Display of Supremacy” weekly challenge.

At the time of writing, the Planestrider emblem is currently unavailable as it only drops during Destiny 2 Season of the Lost Week 10’s challenges.

Bungie introduced weekly challenges during Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen and they added a ton of playability to each season by adding in extra objectives that rewarded XP and bonuses.

It’ll still be a bit of time until players can complete this objective and gain access to the special emblem.

It’s expected that the Polanestrider emblem will be an item exclusive to Season of the Lost, so all Guardians should focus on acquiring it as soon as the challenge is active.
