Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris appears set to deliver again one of many loot shooter’s most-missed options – secret weapon quests.
If you’ve been taking part in Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris you’ve in all probability unlocked the new Lost Prophecy Verses Weapons Forge and begun farming Radiolarian Cultures and Paradox Amplifiers to complete Lost Prophecy Verses. Heck, perhaps you’ve even accomplished the 4 Verses accessible this week already, able to knock out the opposite seven as they rotate into play – just like the Iron Lord artifacts in Rise of Iron.
Now, there’s a concept going across the Destiny 2 fandom in the meanwhile that there’s a secret, additional verse for an unknown Exotic weapon in Curse of Osiris. It appear to be associated to the Legendary shotgun, Perfect Paradox, which we’ve seen in trailers and which has popped up on the Destiny 2 API for dataminers and trackers to deliver to mild.
Right now it’s not identified the way you get this weapon, however we’re all hoping there’s a Verse 11 quest ready for us, and that Perfect Paradox will ultimately lead to us gaining a brand new Exotic weapon, too. Arekkz has the small print within the video beneath, however let’s discuss by it as nicely.
One of the important thing components kicking off hypothesis relating to the potential for an additional quest is that should you climb a spire within the Future Mercury section of the Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris Adventure The Up and Up, you possibly can peak by a gap and use a sniper rifle scope to get an eyeful of a physique floating in mid-air – a physique many assume to be Saint-14.
For these not deep into Destiny lore, Saint-14 was a much-loved Exo Titan; like Osiris and some different (beforehand) mysterious figures, we solely find out about him from merchandise descriptions and sideways Grimoire references. Saint-14 advisable Osiris because the chief of the Vanguard, and left the Last City in the hunt for the exiled Warlock after the latter’s fall from grace.
If you learn the Perfect Paradox lore tab, which is out there through Destiny Tracker amongst others, you’ll discover a diary entry or letter penned by Saint-14, wherein he describes his eventual destiny by the hands of the Vex. His description strongly implies the floating physique discovered on Future Mercury is Saint-14, and that because of Vex timeline woo-woo the participant goes to satisfy Saint-14 and – that is the important thing bit – give him the Perfect Paradox shotgun.
Assuming this truly occurs and we do meet Saint-14, it feels prefer it is perhaps a part of an Exotic weapon quest; we’re not often requested to surrender a weapon until we’re getting a greater model again, as with the Exotic swords or Necrochasm in D1.
The video above additionally goes over this week’s accessible Lost Prophecy verse weapon quests and provides temporary critiques of them, so take a peek should you’re questioning if it’s well worth the effort.
