A Secret Exotic Weapon is Hiding in Destiny’s Daily Mission

As part of its year two update, Destiny has added quite a few updates and tweaks, including a few hidden goodies and secrets for those who look hard enough. Today, a couple of astute players found arguably one of the best weapons in the game, the Black Spindle sniper rifle, and it can be unlocked by playing a daily mission. But it won’t be easy, as the video from YouTuber Mister Wooches reveals.

Deep within the daily heroic mission “Lost to Light”, it’s possible to deviate from the final objective of the mission and instead enter the Lunar Ketch, an area that is normally off limits. Doing so will throw players full of spawning Taken, which they have ten minutes to clear out. This is clearly easier said then done, as the Taken get progressively harder and harder to take out, and if players die, the mission ends. Still, the payoff is worth it, as completing this gauntlet grants players the Black Spindle, a sniper rifle that’s the Year Two version of the Black Hammer that has a 310 attack rating and can pierce armor.

Unfortunately, as I write this, the quest is currently over. Still, that’s not to say it won’t come back some time later, and there are still plenty of opportunities to get the Black Spindle. Destiny and it’s expansion The Taken King are available now for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
