Destiny 2‘s annual Solstice of Heroes has wrapped up, but players can still pursue a final Exotic weapon quest in Season of Arrivals, earning a reward that harkens back to the first year of the game. Four of Destiny 2’s planets will soon be sealed away in the Destiny Content Vault, and Zavala needs your help to clear those locations in the Evacuation quest. The adventure is lengthy, but the reward for evacuating Io, Mars, Mercury, and Titan is a sidearm that has been redesigned: Traveler’s Chosen.
The very first weapon that Guardians could wield in Destiny 2, Traveler’s Chosen has been retooled into an Exotic weapon with some formidable perks:
Final blows with this weapon grant stacks of Gathering Light.Consume stacks, granting melee, grenade, and class ability energy based on the number of stacks.
Gift of the Traveler
Each stack of Gathering Light improves this weapon’s reload, handling, and target acquisition.
The quest to obtain the new Exotic sidearm is free for all players during Season of the Arrivals, with the steps having been datamined and listed below for you to read through.
