How To Get All 6 Class Specific Weapons

Ever since the launch of The Taken King the Gunsmith has been offering Guardians the chance to earn reputation with him. This reputation leads to weapon orders for prototype Legendary weapons, some of which are well worth trying out. This isn’t all however, as sometimes he’ll offer up a quest, an opportunity to earn something more from him, something exotic. This is the beginning of class-specific exotics, one for Hunter, Warlock, and Titan, and all three will be needed in order to complete the Age of Triumph record book. Here is a quick guide as to how to obtain these weapons, but be aware that in the background you should probably be paying the Gunsmith a bit of attention already, to rank up in the meantime if nothing else.

Step 1: reach rank 2 with the Gunsmith

This step is pretty self-explanatory, you need to earn enough reputation with the Gunsmith to reach rank 2. This can be done by earning reputation in Golden Age Relic drops, or by completing the weapon tests he sets each week. You can complete up to five each week, so it’s worth doing that now if you want a chance of earning the goodies.

Once you reach rank 2 you’ll receive the Back in the Saddle quest, which will lead to a Legendary class-specific weapon, Susanoo for Warlocks, Immobius for Titans, and Stillpiercer for Hunters.

Back in the Saddle

The first part of the quest tasks you with killing enemies with a certain weapon while a certain telemetry is active. The second part of the quest requires you to gather weapon parts from Rare or Legendary weapons of the type that the eventual Legendary you’ll receive is, Shotgun for example. You need to dismantle 10 weapons to gather all of these. This is how you obtain the Legendary class weapons, but those exotics are what matters.

Rinse and Repeat

The Gunsmith will task you with doing the same as above, though this time it’s primary weapons with primary telemetry. You’ll have to dismantle rare and legendary weapons once again to get 10 weapon parts, and afterwards you’ll be rewarded with the following.

Tlaloc is a Warlock exclusive exotic Scout Rifle. The exotic perk, Overflow, increases handling, rate of fire, and stability while the user’s Super is charged.

Fabian Strategy is a Titan exclusive Auto Rifle. The exotic perk, Front Lines, increases handling, stability, and rate of fire when enemies are close. Kills will also partially reload the magazine, making for very easy killing.

Ace of Spades is a Hunter exclusive hand cannon. The exotic perk, Maverick, moves one round from your ammo reserves to the magazine when you land a precision kill.

Age of TriumphExotic WeaponsWeapons

I'm an avid Destiny 2 fan and player. I fell in love with Destiny 1 during the early alpha and have been hooked by the universe ever since. I really enjoy playing with other Guardians, speculating about the lore, and writing about as much of the Destiny universe as I can.



"Marks on my body tell me I've seen plenty of action. If need be, I'm ready for more. The Tower is my home. It suits me, and I'll protect it, no matter the cost."[1]

Banshee is an Exo Gunsmith, located within the Tower on the far right side of the Vault and the far left of the Cryptarch. He sells weapons for field testing, telemetries that increase upgrade weapons for a certain type of weapon, and ammo synthesis items for Guardians.[2] He can also sell legendary weapons that arrive on Armsday, if the player has earned enough reputation by testing weapons for him.


Lives -1 Through

Banshee is the Exo form of Clovis Bray I. His body was originally constructed as a personal assistant to Bray with high-spec components that drastically increase his strength, agility, and durability over other Exos. After his torture at the hands of Maya Sundaresh, Clovis I chose to upload his mind into two units: A copy with his memories intact became the controlling AI of the Deep Stone Crypt, while his assistant became Clovis-1, imprinted with his personality but reset per normal Exo protocol. Clovis-1 came to despise his former self, and joined his granddaughter in going to war against the Vex unleashed by Clovis I's research. After a number of resets well beyond the recommended limit, Elsie began to accept that Clovis had changed for the better, only for him to request another reset at the end of their war, so that he would finally be free of the atrocities he committed as a human. To further accomplish this, he requested that Elsie replace the name in his imprint with a nickname he received, "Banshee."

Early Life in the Tower

As with all Exos, Banshee has no recollection of his former functional purpose. In fact, he may have had his memory wiped multiple times, more than forty by his own reckoning and according to the suffix of his name. Still, he has some faint recollections of his past. Following reactivation, Banshee made his way to the Last City, setting up a shop selling guns and ammo synthesis packs to Tower Guardians. At some point he was an active duty soldier, and saw action in the Twilight Gap.[2]

Banshee attended the funeral of the WarlockAlbios on the moon of Io following the Guardian's last stand. He and Cayde-6 became bored during the long ceremony and he bet that Cayde could not make several risky jumps on the nearby mesas. Although Cayde broke both his legs, he won the bet, and Banshee gave him some loot in exchange.[3]

The Rising Darkness

This section needs expansion. You can help Destinypedia by expanding it.

When a newly risen Guardian from the Cosmodrome in Old Russia arrived to requisition a new weapon, Banshee offered them a choice between a Marshal-A, Psi Umbra I, Trax Callum I, and a Duke Mk. He reassured the Guardian that he kept them all cleaned and prepped so they would not jam.[4]

The Red War and Aftermath

Banshee inspecting a gun.

When the Red Legion assaulted the Last City at the dawn of the Red War, Banshee came across the body of Voyc, Shadow of the Wilds, who had perished in an attempt to assassinate Dominus Ghaul during the assault at the behest of Emperor Calus. He recovered Leviathan's Breath from the Psion's body, recognizing the weapon from numerous legends he had heard of it in his occupation as a gunsmith. With the bow in hand, Banshee successfully evacuated from the Tower as it fell to the Cabal.[5] The Vanguard was able to liberate the Last City and set up a new command center at the New Tower. Banshee returned and set up a workshop, continuing to offer his services as a gunsmith to the Guardians and aiding them in upgrading their weapons.

When Lord Shaxx instituted a new ranking system in the Crucible, Banshee began workshopping ideas for a prototype weapon to arm one of the top-ranked contenders with. While watching one match, Banshee noticed a Exo Titan who scored numerous double kills and was informed by Shaxx that the Guardian was Redrix As Redrix rose in the ranks of the Crucible, his skill with pulse rifles inspired other Guardians and resulted in Banshee being unable to keep up with all the new orders for weapons of that type. This inspired Banshee to begin construction on a pulse rifle, but he asked Shaxx to continue testing Redrix's skills in the Crucible. After Redrix passed his tests, Banshee and Shaxx provided him with Redrix's Claymore. Banshee subsequently began producing a successor to the weapon, which he dubbed Redrix's Broadsword, which would be awarded to Guardians who followed in Redrix's footsteps in the Crucible.[6]

Restoring the Ace of Spades

"Rather lose every last memory in my head than know that little prince holds Cayde's prized cannon: the Ace of Spades. You gotta promise me. Put Uldren in the ground. And get the Ace of Spades back. If anyone should have the Ace S'you."
&#; Banshee to the Young Wolf

In the aftermath of Cayde-6's murder at the hands of Prince Uldren Sov of the Reef, Banshee grieved the death of his close friend. As the Young Wolf prepared to depart from the Tower to hunt down Uldren in the Tangled Shore, Banshee spoke with them and admitted that while his memory was not what it used to be he would never forget Cayde. He also informed them that Cayde's will stipulated that whoever killed him got all his worldly possessions, but Banshee was outraged at the thought of the treacherous Prince of the Reef claiming ownership of Cayde's prized Ace of Spades, which Banshee had helped forge. He asked the Young Wolf to promise him that they would kill Uldren and recover the Ace of Spades.[7]

When the Young Wolf returned after killing Uldren and retrieving the Ace of Spades, Banshee was pleased that the traitor was dead and Cayde's prized weapon had been recovered. However, he saw that the Ace had been badly damaged during its recovery and needed to be repaired before it could be used. Banshee revealed that Cayde kept spare parts for the Ace in his loot stashes that he had scattered throughout the solar system, which Banshee informed the Young Wolf were now theirs as well, and requested that they find the caches so they could use the parts to repair the Ace. After all the parts were located, Banshee utilized them to repair the Ace. Pleased with his work, Banshee began to ask the Young Wolf to remember something when using the gun, but lost track of what he was saying. Confused by the conversation, he asked the Young Wolf if they had seen Cayde around recently, unable to remember that his friend had perished.[7]

A Thorny Issue

Several months later, the Young Wolf brought another broken hand cannon to Banshee for advice on fixing. Upon seeing the mangled husk of a Thorn, he remained quiet for a few moments before telling the Guardian that while he did not mind helping them, he would have to report the weapon to Ikora. Banshee also recommened just throwing the frame away and making a different weapon from scratch before dutifully providing the Young Wolf with a list of materials needed to fix the dreaded and forbidden weapon. Once he finished and the Young Wolf left, Banshee unfortunately forgot the details of the conversation and did not report the Thorn to Ikora.[8]

Vex Offensive and Beyond

During the Vex invasion of the Moon, Banshee pulled the Young Wolf aside to offer them a weapon he'd been keeping in a secret workshop since the Red War, forgetting to mention how exactly to get into the workshop, except that Cayde knew the way in. The Young Wolf's Ghost would deduce that the entrance was in the Tower hangar, considering that Cayde spent much of his time there. Eventually, the Young Wolf would return to Banshee to inform him that they found the weapon, a heavy Bow, inside a display case with no way to get in. Unfortunately, Banshee would realize he forgot the code for the display case, and requests that the Young Wolf gather combat data in order to regenerate the code from scratch. After gathering all the data, Banshee would finish the code generation with biometric authentication, and the Young Wolf returned to the workshop to claim the Bow.

The Young Wolf would return to Banshee many times over the following year with a numberofdifferentweapons they acquired in their travels, to which he would offer to help improve them with his expertise.

Banshee would be commissioned by Commander Zavala to build a trophy for the Guardian Games. He would confide to the Young Wolf that he didn't care which Guardian class won the games, but was happy that everyone was discussing something that wasn't the approaching Almighty. However, shortly after, he would end up forgetting the Guardian Games entirely and mistaking it for the Revelry.

Shortly after the arrival of Pyramids in the system, Banshee would be asked by Commander Zavala to analyze a weapon that Eris Morn and the Young Wolf had obtained; the Ruinous Effigy. He would discover that the weapon is made of an unknown organic material, and that it consumes the user's Light to convert it into weaponized Void energy, noting that this didn't seem to be harmful to the user.

During the Young Wolf's raid on the Deep Stone Crypt, Banshee suddenly fell unconscious, and woke up disoriented with scraps of his former life's memories returning. When the Young Wolf returned to the Tower, Banshee's senses went haywire once again. Believing them to be connected, Banshee asked them for assistance making sense of what he remembers. Upon wielding the sword he fought the Vex with in the war on Europa, he remembered his name and former life, a revelation which he is unnerved by but accepts.

Personality and Traits

"Lotta folks only get one chance. I've had 44 to start over—to get it right. I feel like I've done it this time. Must have messed up the previous 43… I know I never want to see 45, that's for sure. If I have to give everything I have to save the people and home I care about, so be it. Might be time for a new generation, anyway."
&#; Banshee reflecting on his nature as an Exo[1]

Banshee exhibits a somewhat depressed mood, but also shows a dry sense of humor.[2] He regarded not knowing about his previous lives as a blessing, believing that he must have messed them up somehow, and had no desire to live a forty-fifth reboot.[1] He also seems to be very forgetful, sometimes even mentioning people he has lost as though they were still alive. This is likely an unfortunate by-product of his having been rebooted so many times, as excessive memory wipes are known to degrade an Exo's mind.

Despite his memory issues, Banshee was extremely dedicated to the people of the Tower and the Last City, regarding them as his true home and was willing to fight and die to defend it. He viewed his work arming Guardians for their fight as the highest possible calling he could answer to help safeguard humanity. Banshee disliked those who were driven by selfishness or greed and believed that only the good were worth helping.[1]



Banshee has a rotating stock of weapons available, from Common to Rare in quality. He also sells consumables for players to give them some much-needed help in firefights, such as ammo synthesis, which refills ammo for a weapon with varying cooldowns, or weapon telemetries, which speeds up weapon upgrade progression.

Destiny 2

Banshee serves as a vendor with his own reputation rankup packages. Gunsmith Materials (earned from dismantling rare, legendary and exotic weapons and armor) and Gunsmith Telemetry (earned by getting a certain amount of Arc, Solar or Void kills while an appropriate Gunsmith Telemetry Ghost is equipped) can be turned in to Banshee to receive weapons.

Banshee is able to reward all the foundry (read: Hakke, Omolon, SUROS and VEIST) weapons and weapons rewarded by Devrim Kay, Sloane, Failsafe and Asher Mir. He is unable to reward any Vanguard or Crucible non-foundry weapons.


In Destiny 2, Banshee sells random legendary armor and weapon mods for 10 mod components, rotating on a daily basis. He also sells upgrade materials.

Random Legendary Armor Mod10 Mod Components
Random Legendary Weapon Mod10 Mod Components
Upgrade Module1 Enhancement Core, 10 Legendary Shards, 25 Planetary Materials†‡, 5, Glimmer
Enhancement Prism10 Enhancement Cores, 25 Planetary Materials†, 10, Glimmer
Ascendant Shard10 Enhancement Prisms, Planetary Materials†, 50, Glimmer

† The specific Planetary Material required rotates weekly for each item.
‡ Upgrade Modules can be bought with a choice between two types of Planetary Materials to pay.


Destiny 1

Players can gain reputation with Banshee by field testing weapons in different situations. Banshee offers a selection of five random experimental weapons to test in the field each week. So long as the player is at least level 38 and has room in their inventory, the player can take as many as they want. These weapons act as their own bounties, requiring use under a specific set of conditions. Upon completing the bounty, the weapon will automatically grant + Gunsmith reputation and can be dismantled or kept for future use. Test weapons and their possible challenges include:


At reputation level 1, Banshee will allow players to purchase with glimmer (as opposed to Legendary Marks) a legendary weapon that will arrive on the next Wednesday with randomized perks.[9] For each reputation level, Banshee will allow players to purchase another weapon for armsday, as well as increase the number of roll options for Armsday. For example, at rank 3, a player can purchase 3 weapons, and when armsday comes around, they have three different choices per weapon for what modifiers they want.


Any weapon with the "Reforge Ready" perk (mostly House of Wolves and Iron Banner weapons) can be taken to Banshee to have its perks and elemental modifier (if any) randomized, at the cost of resetting upgrade progress. This costs one Mote of Light, 3 Weapon Parts, and Glimmer.

Exotic Weapon Quests

Destiny 1

Banshee plays an important part in acquiring multiple exotic weapons through exotic quests personalized by what class you play as.

Back in the Saddle

At rank 2, Banshee will have a Quest for a class-specific legendary special weapon. This must be completed to enable the exotic weapon quest. Hunters receive Stillpiercer, Titans receive Immobius, and Warlocks receive Susanoo.

Upon reaching Gunsmith rank 3, Banshee will offer the player a quest which will reward one of three Exotic weapons depending on the player's class. Hunters will receive Ace of SpadesHand Cannon, Titans will receive Fabian StrategyAuto Rifle, and Warlocks will receive TlalocScout Rifle.


At rank 5, Banshee will have a new quest. He will require the player to get kills with Hand Cannons while a telemetry is active. Then the player has to wait until Armsday to pick up a field test weapon called Imprecation. They must infuse the weapon, get kill sprees with it, and then precision kill sprees. They must then wait for another Armsday delivery to get The First Curse.

Reward: The First Curse

Sleeper Simulant

To trigger this quest, players need to find and collect four "Dark Age Relics" that randomly drop from Major and Ultra enemies; the relics appear as Legendary Fusion Rifles (labeled "DVALIN-RASFR00x", with the "x" being a number between 1 and 4) that are added to the Mission items section of the player's inventory. These items can be given to Banshee for reputation each.

From there, the player will have to perform a series of missions and puzzles involving recovered artifacts. See Sleeper Simulant for more details. Once these puzzles are complete, Banshee will take the completed IKELOS Fusion Core and will have the player come back at the next Armsday.

Reward: Sleeper Simulant

Destiny 2

Similar to Destiny 1, Banshee plays an important role in several exotic weapon quests.

Sight, Shoot, Repeat

Upon receiving the MIDA Mini-Tool from Devrim Kay in the EDZ World Quest "Enhance" (or alternatively, transferring the MIDA Mini-Tool from another character), Banshee will have this quest for you.

  • Step 1 - Eliminate 50 enemies with a scout rifle + Eliminate 25 groups of enemies without reloading.
  • Step 2 - Dismantle 5 rare or legendary scout rifles.
  • Step 3 (The Fall Will Kill You quest) - Kill 50 enemies with an SMG while airborne (this can be done while standing on anything that isn't the ground. Walls, rocks, cars, etc. all count as being airborne).
  • Step 4 - Return to Banshee to receive your MIDA Multi-Tool.

Cayde's Will

"You gotta promise me. Put Uldren in the ground. And get the Ace of Spades back. If anyone should have the AceS'you."
&#; Banshee to The Guardian

After the death of Cayde-6, Banshee challenges players to take the Ace of Spades Back from Uldren.


  • "Looks like you had a rough night." (if approached by a Guardian during the night)[2]
  • "That got the range you need, Hunter?" (if selling a sniper rifle to a Hunter)
  • "That gun belongs in an Exo's hands." (if selling a weapon to an Exo guardian)
  • "Had these with us at Twilight Gap. Went pretty badly. Not the gun's fault." (after purchasing a weapon)
  • "Careful where you point that thing!" (after purchasing a weapon)
  • "I'll remember youmaybe." (after completing transactions)
  • "Reef work, alright not bad. Too fancy. I can fix that."
  • "Shotty, as if I wouldn't notice. All my wipes, seen all the tricks."

  • "What was the name of that officer? Only I remember her, and so little. How her rifle jammed, then gone."
  • "The fires below us as we dropped on the coast."
  • "Are those teeth marks? Nasty."
  • "Wolk Howling, on the field where he fell. Never gets better for some."
  • "Told him it wouldn't stop Cabal. Some men never listen."
  • "What was her name. Fierce eyes, full of light. The hell was it."
  • "Nadir aren't what they used to be. I remember the new guy's grandfather."
  • "Exos don't dream, he said. But what's dream, and what's memory?" *grumbles* "Just fix the gun, Banshee."
  • "Very good. Must let Cassoid know this is adequate. But don't let it get to their heads."
  • "Of course I can. Forgotten more about guns than she's ever known."
  • "How many times has my system been wiped. 41, 42, 43?"
  • "All these lives on the line, and Daito wants more Glimmer. What goes through their heads down there?"
  • "Best Exo I ever served under up and vanished one night. That's war."
  • "First time was incompetence, this time it's sabotage. Get to the bottom of this."

Destiny - exotic bounties and exotic weapons

So you've already got a full set of legendary armour pieces and maybe even an exotic. Who knows, maybe you have Raid gear too! But the point is that for you the armour grind is over, at least until there's something new to lust after. At this stage, having put dozens of hours into the game, you are probably about to be offered an exotic bounty if you haven't been already.

There is no way to guarantee receiving an exotic bounty - all we know is that there is a small chance of being offered one when you cash in a completed bounty with Xander When it does happen, though, you will be offered a choice of three. But which bounty to choose?

Before we begin, it's worth noting that while there are five exotic bounties for you to discover in Destiny at the time of writing, there will be others in future and there are far more than five exotic weapons in the game. Keep an eye out for Xur, Agent of the Nine, who sells the others on rotation in exchange for Strange Coin, while you can also receive them as random loot drops in Crucible and Raids.

Exotic bounties

Exotic weapon bounties are broken into multiple parts, some of which can be very difficult to complete. At best they will be extremely time-consuming. So unless you know which one you are accepting, you can end up doing an awful lot of busywork or else just get completely stuck and you may end up with a weapon you don't really like at the end of it. So make sure that you know what you're getting yourself into before accepting an exotic bounty.

A Dubious Task - Invective exotic shotgun

Difficulty: Moderate


1) Talk to Ikora Rey.
2) Complete five Strikes without dying.
3) Talk to Ikora Rey again.
4) Earn a kill/death spread of 25 in the Crucible. (This means playing Crucible until you have gained 25 more kills than deaths over the course of a few games. Assists also count.)
5) Talk to Ikora Rey again.
6) Complete a weekly challenge - either Weekly Heroic or Nightfall Strike.
7) Talk to Ikora Rey again.
8) Buy an Invective component from the Gunsmith for 50 special weapon ammo packs. (If you need to buy these it costs 12, Glimmer, so be prepared.)
9) Talk to Ikora Rey to receive Invective.

The first stage of this bounty - completing five Strikes without dying - is a little tedious, but if you pick a low-level task like Devils' Lair or Summoning Pits and work in a fireteam then you should be OK. Please don't just spawn into a matchmade Strike and not contribute. (If you do that then you are subhuman scum!) The Crucible part is not too hard either providing you can put a run of decent games together. The Weekly Heroic is probably hardest, but by now you should be capable. And getting 12, Glimmer is trivial - if you are running short, just do some other activities with the Glimmer-gain buffs active for the local race you're fighting to speed things up.

Invective is a nice shotgun. The reload is slow and it has a hell of a kick, but it's also amazingly powerful and the ability to regenerate ammunition is a real boon - as is the full auto capability, providing you can master it. Invective is not as novel as Universal Remote, the shotgun you can use as a primary weapon, but it's good nonetheless, especially in the Crucible.

A Light in the Dark - Thorn exotic hand cannon

Difficulty: Hard


1) Complete The Summoning Pits Strike on the Moon.
2) Earn points by killing Hive enemies on the Moon. (2 points per kill. Majors give 20 points, Ultras give )
3) Use Void Damage to kill Guardians in the Crucible. (Need points. 5 points per kill with Void damage, 2 lost per death.)
4) Buy an Infusion of Light from the Speaker for one Mote of Light.
5) Talk to Ikora Rey.
6) Kill Xyor, the Unwed, in a special level 26 version of The Summoning Pits. (This version of the Strike is only available when this bounty is active. Xyor appears in the third wave of arrivals from Tombships, so you need the boss to stay alive long enough for this to happen.)
7) Talk to the Speaker to obtain Thorn.

This bounty can really hold you up. The initial parts are easy enough, but the Crucible demand is frustrating for a couple of reasons. First, you may not have a favoured weapon that deals Void damage, so you may need to scratch around for that. Second, the fact your progress is pegged back by death means you need to achieve a fairly positive kill/death ratio in your matches in order to get closer to success, while any off days count heavily against you. Finally, hanging around in the Summoning Pits boss fight long enough for Xyor to arrive, then defeating him, can take a while to pull off.

Once you have Thorn, you will be disappointed by the clip size - just six rounds - while reload time is also a pain. But it is another great-looking gun and the damage it deals is substantial, particularly once it's upgraded so that bullets linger in enemies and deal residual damage.

A Voice in the Wilderness - Super Good Advice exotic machine gun

Difficulty: Easy

1) Find A Mournful Gun by opening loot caches on Mars.
2) Talk to the Gunsmith.
3) Buy an ammunition module from Xur for 1 Strange Coin.
4) Kill enemies with a Machine Gun. (Kills give 1 point, headshots and sprees 3 points. Rocket launcher kills remove 5 points.)
5) Talk to the Gunsmith to receive Super Good Advice.

Sometimes there is minor variation in how this bounty unfolds, but it's pretty similar to the above in each case, and ranks among the most straightforward exotic bounties, although as with the others it can be a little time-consuming.

Super Good Advice is not the most exciting weapon in the game, but once upgraded you will find that rounds which miss their target are returned to the clip, which is certainly a boon in both PVP and PVE. All the same, this feels like a bounty to complete after the others.

Shattered Memory Fragment - Pocket Infinity exotic fusion rifle

Difficulty: Moderate


1) Pick up a Damaged Ghost in the Shattered Coast area. (Save yourself some time by watching a video showing where.)
2) Kill a Vex Gate Lord on Heroic difficulty. (Do this by playing through the Eye of a Gate Lord story mission on a higher setting.)
3) Talk to the Speaker.
4) Talk to the Gunsmith.
5) Dismantle 10 rare or higher quality fusion rifles.
6) Talk to the Gunsmith again.
7) Kill enemies in Weekly Nightfall Strikes using fusion rifles.
8) Talk to the Gunsmith to receive Pocket Infinity.

The Shattered Memory Fragment bounty is pretty straightforward but if you've played a decent amount of Destiny then you will immediately be able to tell which bit will hold you up: dismantling 10 rare or higher quality fusion rifles. Unless you have been extremely prescient and clung on to pretty much every rare and legendary fusion rifle you've ever received in a drop, you are not going to have enough. The good news is that the Gunsmith sells them every so often. The bad news is that it's only every three nights at 11pm UTC, as discovered by this helpful Redditor. (Update: This info seems to be out of date, but the good news is there is an alert service set up by another avid player that will notify you when the Gunsmith has rare fusion rifles in stock.)

Apart from that, the other steps are pretty simple. The Weekly Nightfall Strike can be a ridiculous undertaking, but if you are well prepared - e.g. with weapons that suit the enemy weaknesses that week and a couple of buddies in your fireteam - you can chew up a lot of enemies quite quickly. Besides, you don't have to complete the Strike, merely kill enemies during it.

Pocket Infinity, which you receive for completing the bounty, has some drawbacks - charge time, in particular - but it's the only fusion rifle with an auto-fire setting and this is a wonderful novelty. Essentially you hold the trigger to charge up and then if you don't release the trigger it will empty the entire clip in one burst. Glorious against tougher enemies.

Toland's Legacy - Bad Juju exotic pulse rifle

Difficulty: Moderate


1) Complete a Weekly Heroic or Nightfall Strike. (The Tiger Strike playlist also works.)
2) Talk to Ikora Rey.
3) Complete 25 additional Strikes on any difficulty.
4) Talk to Ikora Rey again.
5) Talk to the Gunsmith.
6) Visit Xur, Agent of the Nine, and buy a Darkness-infused weapon frame for 1 Strange Coin. (You can only do this having completed the previous steps.)
7) Talk to the Gunsmith again.
8) Gather 10, points in Crucible matches. (A Titan or Hunter kill or assist is worth 25 points, a Warlock kill or assist is worth )
9) Talk to the Gunsmith to receive Bad Juju.

The Toland's Legacy exotic bounty is not too difficult to complete but it is a heck of a grind. The first step is the hardest, but as long as you have a couple of friends to help out then the Weekly Heroic Strike on basic difficulty shouldn't hold you up long.

Then the next step is the most painful: complete 25 Strikes. You can do this on any difficulty, so frankly it's just time-consuming. The fastest Strike to run in the game is The Summoning Pits, which has only two battles that you have to complete to continue: the fight at the doorway in the room where you fought the Swarm Princes in the Sword of Crota story mission, then the boss fight with Phogoth, the Untamed. With a bit of practice and a willing fireteam - we did it all with matchmaking - it's possible to get your par time for this Strike down to less than 15 minutes. But even 15 minutes starts to feel like a long time when you have to do it 25 times over. (It's also worth considering that you need to get these Strikes finished in time for Xur, who is only in the Tower from Friday 10am GMT to Sunday at the same time.)

The penultimate step is the most enjoyable, because it's just about playing the game. Go forth into Crucible and kill lots of people, with no penalties for deaths or poor ratios or anything like that. Our preferred method was playing Control matches and just hovering around claimed control points until the enemy comes calling, but you will make steady progress regardless.

Once complete, you end up with Bad Juju, the exotic pulse rifle. This weapon looks fantastic and once fully upgraded it packs a wallop, which is handy if you're just headshotting PVE mobs, but the clip size is extremely small, necessitating a hell of a lot of reloads. One of the upgrades is an "instant reload", but it isn't quite that straightforward - it means you get some ammo back after every kill, although this is still handy. Overall this is a gun that needs a tweak. The good news is that Bungie has already said it will receive one in due course, so it may be worth grabbing it anyway and holding on for that buff.

Destiny Guide: How to Unlock the Class-Specific Exotic Weapons

By GR Staff


Our latest guide for Destiny: The Taken King shows players how to unlock the new class-specific exotic weapons that have been introduced with the new expansion.

Many Destiny players are now probably done with the new campaign content that's been added to the game via The Taken King. Beyond that, the new King's Fall Raid is likely the most pressing challenge — but you may find that you need some new gear to take on Oryx on his home turf.

The Taken King introduces some class-specific exotic weapons that could help change the face of a battle with the god-king of the Taken, but there are a few hoops to jump through to gain access to them. Follow this guide, and your Guardian will be locked and loaded with the latest weaponry in no time at all.

First, you'll need to reach rank 3 with the Gunsmith. You can do this by testing weapons out for him — you'll be given a new gun to play around with, and a challenge associated with that weapon in particular. This might be killing a certain amount of a particular enemy, or racking up kills in a particular Crucible game mode.

Once you've completed enough tests to reach rank 3, you'll be presented with a quest to earn the exotic weapon for your class. All of this is tied to the particular weapon that each class earns; Auto Rifles for Titans, Hand Cannons for Hunters and Scout Rifles for Warlocks.

You'll need to rack up kills with a weapon of the corresponding type with a Primary telemetry active. Once that's completed, you'll also have to dismantle legendary or rare weapons of the same type as the corresponding weapon reward for your character class. Legendary count for 5 points towards a count of 10, while rare count as 2.

This should complete the quest without the player having to wait for Arms Day, a new mechanic that's introduced in The Taken King. Armsday, which falls on a Wednesday, is when new test weapons appear, though, so players looking to earn more Gunsmith reputation should be aware of that.

The following weapons are the rewards for each character class:

Hunter — Ace of Spades (Hand Cannon)

  • TrueSight IS | QuickDraw IS | SteadyHand IS
  • Firefly – Precision kills cause the target to explode
  • High Caliber Rounds | Perfect Balance | Reinforced Barrel
  • Maverick – Precision kills move one round from your ammo reserves into the magazine

Warlock — Tlaloc (Scout Rifle)

  • Smooth Ballistics | Accurized Ballistics | Soft Ballistics
  • Eye of the Storm – This weapon becomes more accurate as your health gets lower
  • Hand Loaded | Armor Piercing Rounds | Injection Mold
  • Overflow – This weapon has better handling, rate of fire, and stability while the wielder’s super is charged.

Titan — The Fabian Strategy (Auto Rifle)

  • Smooth Ballistics | CQB Ballistics | Linear Compensator
  • Life Support – Kills with this weapon while critically wounded have a chance to start regenerating health
  • Extended Mag | Lightweight | Smallbore
  • Front Lines – This weapon has increased handling, rate of fire, and stability when enemies are close

Destiny is available now for Xbox , Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.
