Bungie has already made a few massive weapons available early on in Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen. The Dead Man’s Tale Exotic Rifle is the newest gun, and we’ll show you how to obtain it.

Between Weekly Challenges, new Strikes, and much more, Destiny 2 players have had a lot to get their hands on with Season of the Chosen. Though they probably weren’t expecting to get their hands on the Dead Man’s Tale Exotic Rifle so soon.

Bungie usually releases these kinds of rare quests later in the season to let people absorb all the new content. But just like the Palindrome Hand Cannon, Ticuu’s Divination, and the Hammer of Proving, Dead Man’s Tale is available now, and here’s a quick guide to make acquiring it straightforward.

Dead Man’s Tale Exotic Scout Rifle in Season of the Chosen

As with most Exotic weapon quests, there will be a few steps that need to be undertaken first. We’ve got to find and accept the quest, be successful in each stage of the quest, and then flaunt the Exotic Rifle to celebrate.

Here’s what you’ll need to do add the Dead Man’s Tale Exotic to your collection.

1. Start the Presage Exotic Quest

To get us on our way, you’ll first need to locate and begin the Arms Dealer Strike – you can activate this from the Director. Kill the enemies in it and defeat a Phalanx boss and you should come across an Intercepted Distress Signal inside a container.

2. Head to The Tower and find Zavala

Find Zavala in The Tower and he will give you a new quest called “The Voice on the Other Side” which has a step that leads to the Presage Quest. It’s recommended that you are a decent Power Level before attempting this quest.

3. Presage Exotic Quest

When you reach the main destination, there will be a big door that you can’t open right away. To circumvent this, you’ll need to head to the left side, negotiate some platforms, including a BIG jump, and head in.

You will soon come across Spores that will become a big part of this quest. You need to be stood very close to them and shoot them. Doing so will empower you with a special buff that allows you to pass through some Darkness doors that would otherwise kill you.

You’ll then need to negotiate corridors and ventilation shafts until you reach an electrically-charged barrier. You now need to get around this and keep progressing until you come to a sort of crusher mechanism.

You’ll need to take deadaim at the grates on the floor until you reveal a fuse. Shoot this and you’ll stop the crusher in the process. Quickly escape before you get turned into a fine paste.

Now that you’re safe, continue on and battle enemies outside whilst engaging in more platforming. You’ll then have another few rooms of Spore puzzling to solve before you come to the boss of this quest.

4. The Locus of Communion Boss Fight

After a long and convoluted road to get here, you will now face the boss. He isn’t as complex as what’s come before, but the encounter will be a tough one.

The fight is centered around two different rooms, the Upper Room, and the Lower Room. The room below is a Boiler Room that contains the boss, you can’t actually go in here or the heat will kill you. So you’ll need to move around upstairs and pull several levers to cool the Boiler Room down. Once you’ve pulled them, head down and unload on him until his health depletes.

The Boiler Room will eventually kick in again, and force you out. Rinse and repeat the previous steps until you’ve defeated the boss.

5. Claim your Dead Man’s Tale Exotic Scout Rifle

Now comes the easiest step of them all, finish up anything you’ve got left to do in this area, then head back to The Tower to meet Zavala once more.

He will reward you with Dead Man’s Tale, and you now have possession of a cool gun after a cool quest.

So there you go. We hope this straight and to-the-point guide will help you obtain the Dead Man’s Tale Exotic.

More weapons are still to come in Season of the Chosen and we’ll be sure to give you guides on how to get them and anything else important in Destiny 2’s newest season.

Destiny 2 Season 15’s Season of the Lost is quite a monumental step forward for the game in many ways. The long-awaited The Witch Queen expansion is just around the corner, with Season of the Lost setting players up for it, and Destiny 2 finally has crossplay.

But the progress doesn’t stop there though, as Bungie is always doing its utmost to ensure that Destiny 2 is free of bugs and problems. This is why the new 3.3.0.2 Hotfix looks to improve things by addressing some lingering issues and make some quality of life changes.

  • Fixed an issue with Japanese translations of a few lore entries.

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.
