It’s just the second week of Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen, and there’s already a new exotic weapon for players to chase in a hidden exotic quest. Here’s what you need to find the Presage mission and get started earning Dead Man’s Tale, a new exotic scout rifle.
The tour starts with this week’s Nightfall: The Ordeal Strike, The Arms Dealer. You must load the mission to find the way to start Presage, so you will grind your power level up to at least 1230 to make things easier for yourself. The mission you want to unlock, Presage, also has a recommended power level of 1
How to find exotic missions
Play The Arms Dealer In Nightfall: The Ordeal
You have to start The Arms Dealer, this week’s Nightfall: The Ordeal Strike, but the good news is that you do not have to complete the strike or play it with great difficulty to find what you are looking for.
Start the mission and enter the first room, a Cabal facility where you fight a handful of enemies. Typically, you use Ghost to hack a console and open the door at the far end of the room, which leads outside. Instead, look for a new, newly opened door, near the table with the large hologram on it. This leads you to another large hallway deeper into the facility, and the trail is full of towers.
Find the emergency signal
Blast your way through the hallway to the end, and go out outside, but this time, on a couple of landing pads. A larger Cabal Phalanx called Than’grot, loyal to Caiatl, blocks the path here, as do a few more towers. Shoot through them all to open the path out on the landing pads.
You will see a few more towers as you push over to the facility. Jump out to the longest landing site and look for a large gray box. Interact with it to receive a Cabal Distress Signal data pad in your inventory. You can check it out for some history.
Return to Zavala
At this point you are done with The Arms Dealer, and you can complete the strike as usual or just go to the track. Return to the tower and talk to Zavala. After getting an overview of the situation, you will unlock a new mission on the Director’s Tangled Shore map. Look at the top of the screen for the Presage mission.
We will update this guide with more information as we find it, so stay tuned!
