It’s only the second week of Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen, and already there’s a new Exotic weapon for players to chase in a hidden Exotic quest. Here’s what you need to find the Presage quest and get started earning Dead Man’s Tale, a new Exotic scout rifle.
Your journey starts with this week’s Nightfall: The Ordeal Strike, The Arms Dealer. You’ll need to load into the mission in order to find the path to start Presage, so you’ll want to grind your Power level up to at least 1230 to make things easier on yourself. The mission you’re looking to unlock, Presage, also has a recommended Power level of 1230, so keep that in mind before you get started.
How To Find The Pressage Exotic Mission
Play The Arms Dealer In Nightfall: The Ordeal
You’ll need to start The Arms Dealer, this week’s Nightfall: The Ordeal Strike, but the good news is that you neither have to finish the Strike or play it at a high difficulty to find what you’re looking for.
Start the mission and enter the first room, a Cabal facility where you’ll fight a handful of enemies. Usually, you’d then use Ghost to hack a console and open the door at the far end of the room, which leads outside. Instead, look for another, newly opened door, near the table with the big hologram on it. This leads you to another large hallway deeper into the facility, and the path is littered with turrets.
Find The Distress Signal
Blast your way through the hallway to its end and you’ll exit outside, but this time, onto a pair of landing pads. A Major Cabal Phalanx called Than’grot, Loyal to Caiatl, blocks the path here, as do some more turrets. Shoot through them all to open the path out onto the landing pads.
You’ll see a few more turrets as you push away to the facility. Jump out to the furthest landing pad and look for a big gray crate. Interact with it and you’ll get a Cabal Distress Signal datapad in your inventory. You can check it out for a little bit of backstory.
Return To Zavala
At this point, you’re done with The Arms Dealer and you can finish the Strike as normal or just depart for orbit. Head back to the Tower and talk to Zavala. After getting a rundown of the situation, you’ll unlock a new mission on the Director’s Tangled Shore map. Look toward the top of the screen for the Presage mission.
We’ll update this guide with more information as we find it, so stay tuned!
