Destiny 2 Xenophage Quest Steps: How to get Exotic Machine Gun in Shadowkeep

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep introduced a heavy-duty new machine gun to the game last night – the Hive-busting Xenophage.

The new Exotic (the next addition into the game since Destiny added the Leviathan's Bow heavy last week) requires players to undergo a series of challenges to unlock it, culminating in a pretty powerful boss at the end.

So make sure you go in prepared!

Xenophage looks set to be a pretty useful machine in the hands of powerful Guardians: the new gun comes with a perk called "Pyrotoxin Rounds", meaning it fires high-powered explosive ammunition that can deal some pretty intense DPS on mobs and bosses.

To add to its devastation, the Solar gun also comes loaded with the Rangefinder perk, which increases range and projectile velocity when you're aiming down sights.

Here's what you need to do to get the Xenophage in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Horned Wreath | Destiny 2 Captive Cord | Destiny 2 Ethereal Charms | Destiny 2 Withered Plumes | Destiny 2 Bound Manacle | Destiny 2 Necromantic Strand | Destiny 2 Leviathan’s Breath Quest

To initiate this quest, you'll need to speak to Eris Morn – the moody vendor that lives on the Moon (what a sentence!). She will open a new dungeon for you and will give you the quest you'll need to complete to get the Exotic.

Once you've got the quest, go to Sorrow's Harbor and enter the eponymous Shadowkeep (you can do this either via entering a portal next to her, which appears once you've completed the Campaign for Shadowkeep, or heading to the Enduring Abyss section of the Moon map).

Once at Sorrow’s Harbor, head up the steps into the Keep and go through the door on your left. Follow the trail of glowing crystals, and head to the area where the game wants you to drop onto a lower platform. Ignore it.

Instead, stick to the wall on your right and keep your eyes above you, searching for another platform. Head up once you clock it.

Climb up and Either you’ll see four statues.

Approach the one nearest to your Guardian on the right and interact with it. You'll get another quest – Emerge from the Dark.

You'll now need to activate the statues in a particular order in order to progress:

  • Front right
  • Back right
  • Back left
  • Front left

A chest will pop in the middle of the statues giving you a quest, Emergence, and the first step it for The Journey.

To complete this part of the quest, get yourself over to Anchor of Light on the Moon map.

Head inside a building (under the 'A' of Anchor on the map) and search for an ominous glowing orb encased in black Moon rock. Before you pick this up, be aware that you'll need to go and activate six different locations as soon as you interact with the orb.

• One is right behind where you find the orb
• Head left through a door, up the hill and see to a doorway by a Vex on the rocks to the left.
• Enter a small yellow building and find the pad in the back corner (back the way you came from)
• Clock a large yellow building opposite, enter, drop down a level and see the pad on the beams
• Spy two more yellow buildings on your left: you'll find a pad on the roof the one on the right.
• A large circular building will be nearby, the last pad in on the roof.

Once all pads are lit, a message will read “You are ready to emerge from the dark” and a nav point will appear nearby.

Interact, and you'll get the Pathfinder step – check the video below for more information.

Here, you'll need to complete Lost Sectors on the Moon, and head through special areas unlocked once you kill the miniboss at the end of the Sector.

You’ll see a three by three grid of runes that you need to shoot in a specific order in each area – these have been decoded by the Raid Secrets Reddit .

LOST SECTOR SYMBOL ORDER

K1 Communion

Bottom left, bottom right, top middle, top middle

K1 Crew Quarters

Top right, middle left, centre, bottom middle, bottom left

K1 Logistics

Top left, bottom left, middle right, centre

K1 Revelations

Middle right, middle left, centre, center, middle left, top middle, bottom middle, centre

Doing this correctly will unlock the Descent step of the quest.

Head to the Pit of Heresy (which Eris will have unlocked for you when you spoke to her).

Enter, take your first right, then head left into the door covered in Hive runes. Keep going on this path until you encounter the Hive Totem and Pariah Ogre.

Off the edge of a cliff, there shold be a rune-covered plate that will spawn platforms nearby. Your familiar ball of light will be waiting over these platforms – head over to it and interact.

Keep going in you'll come to a door with a pair of red lanterns you'll need to light (be as quick as possible).

The door will open and there'll be a level 970 Wizard to fight and kill – what out, it can be tricky.

You will be afflicted with debuffs during the fight: Abyssal, Thunderous, Fiery or Neutral. Once you're afflicted with one, grab the orb that appears in the middle of the in the centre of the area and deposit it into a corner of the room that corresponds with the elemental debuff you've recieved.

  • Neutral: Front left corner, top level
  • Fiery: Back right corne, bottom level
  • Thunderous: Front left corner, bottom level
  • Abyssal: Back left corner, top level

Return to Eris, hand over the Hive Bug and the claim your prize. Phew!
