Destiny 2‘s Festival of the Lost has ended, however there’s nonetheless one piece of Destiny’s Halloween-themed occasion to go. It’s a homicide thriller quest line Bungie teased firstly of the Festival, during which gamers are tasked with determining what occurred to Master Ives, the Cryptarch previously seen within the Reef again within the first Destiny.
Ives’ demise is each a narrative level and a quest to get a brand new Exotic weapon. That gun is Thunderlord, a lightning-slinging machine gun from the unique Destiny that, till now, hadn’t proven up within the sequel. Unlocking it’s a multi-step however comparatively low-level quest, whose first step unlocked on October 30, the second on November 6, and the ultimate on November 13.

To begin it, head to Amanda Holliday within the Tower, the place you may obtain Master Ives’ journal. The pursuit merchandise is coloured gold, like different Exotic weapons quests, and requires gamers to go looking out the lacking pages from Ives’ diary out on this planet. Here’s learn how to clear up the thriller and get Thunderlord.
Step 1: The Crytarch’s Journal
Clearing that first step is definitely fairly straightforward to perform. There are 10 pages to amass, and gamers can get them both by discovering Legendary engrams in varied activities–including Gambit, the Crucible, Strikes, and every little thing else you already do in Destiny 2–or from killing harder Fallen enemies within the EDZ on Earth.
Actually snagging all of the pages is a simple feat to knock out if you happen to head to the EDZ. You’re on the lookout for Fallen with orange-colored well being bars, that are in any other case generally known as Elite dangerous guys. You want the orange enemies particularly; you will not get pages from Majors, who’ve yellow well being bars, like those designated as high-value targets, as an illustration.
The quickest approach to discover Elite Fallen to kill within the EDZ is to discover a public occasion and be part of it. The Glimmer Mining occasion that takes place in varied locations within the EDZ is a strong guess, particularly if you happen to knock it as much as its Heroic stage. You will not get a web page for each Elite you kill, however the drop charge is fairly high–one or two public occasions ought to do it.
If you do not really feel like messing round on Earth, you too can spend some shards on the Cryptarch within the Tower to shortly collect up the Legendary engrams you must full the step. That methodology will value you 250 Legendary shards if you happen to purchase 10 engrams to get all 10 pages. Given how straightforward it’s to get the pages within the EDZ or by incomes Legendaries organically, although, you most likely need not waste the shards.
Step 2: Hunting The Fallen
The second step is nearly as fast and simple as the primary. It returns you to the EDZ, this time to finish 4 Lost Sectors. You’ll begin with a batch of three that want cleansing out: Atrium, Widow’s Walk, and Terminus East. If you are not accustomed to the names, these are the three Lost Sectors situated within the Trostland space of the EDZ.
You’ll discover Atrium within the church the place Devrim Kay hangs out, Widow’s Walk within the northwest nook of the world, and Terminus East within the northeast nook. Once you’ve got wrecked the Major enemies in all three, you may get a brand new step that directs you to yet one more Lost Sector, known as Whispered Falls.
Jump in your Sparrow and drive west to the Outskirts space, and search for the Lost Sector up within the hills within the west finish of the world. It’s north of the narrower portion of the map you drive via to entry Winding Cove.
Kill the Major in Whispered Falls and you may want to attend for Amanda Holliday to summon you again to the Tower. She’ll finally offer you new coordinates, which is able to ship you to the third and closing stage of the search.
Step 3: Return To The Cosmodrome
Your closing step for the mission unlocks whenever you’re prompted to return to Amanda Holliday. She’ll establish a wierd teleporter in Earth’s European Dead Zone you must go verify out–it’s truly a Mission flag that begins you on the ultimate step of the search. To get there, warp into the Winding Cove location within the EDZ, then experience east towards the Outskirts. You’ll discover the mission begin within the northern a part of the canyon within the Whispered Falls Lost Sector. Fight your manner inside to succeed in the teleporter.
Starting the mission warps you again to the Cosmodrome, the place the place Destiny gamers first began manner again at first of the unique sport. You’re mainly following the trail of the very first Destiny mission, preventing via Fallen into the Wall across the Cosmodrome. Keep following the mission markers till you get inside, the place you may face an enormous battle with a Fallen Captain known as Kikliss, Murderer, and an enormous batch of minion enemies.
This is the hardest combat of the mission by far, so carry your greatest weapons and attempt to hold transferring. Smaller Fallen enemies will frequently spawn into the battle, so Supers that take out plenty of enemies without delay or are good for crowd management will assist. Once you injury Kikliss sufficient, an enormous Servitor will be part of the combat, which makes it much more annoying. Try to maintain house between you and Kikliss whilst you focus your hearth on the Servitor, since it will possibly make different enemies invincible–including the boss.
Killing the Servitor ought to make it a bit of simpler to take down Kikliss, which is your essential goal for the mission. Once you do, you may be prompted to combat your manner again out the Cosmodrome. Back exterior, you may get a message from Amanda Holliday suggesting that this might be your final time again within the Cosmodrome, and you may see an goal immediate studying, “Leave The Cosmodrome?” It appears Destiny 2 is suggesting there may be extra secrets and techniques to search out hidden in Russia, so take your time in leaving to go searching. We have not discovered no matter secret the sport is hinting at simply but, however we’ll replace this information after we do.
If you method the teleporter close to the place you began, you may be despatched again to orbit and prompted to return to Holliday within the Tower. When you do, she’ll marvel about what the Fallen who killed Master Ives have been actually after, however she’ll additionally thanks for avenging his demise. Your closing reward is a “trinket” she present in his stuff, which is none aside from the sparking machine gun Thunderlord.
