Following the February 16, 2021 weekly reset of Destiny 2, a new Exotic kinetic scout rifle called Dead Man’s Tale became visible in the game’s Collections tab. Additionally, the first step of the weapon’s quest, Presage, is available. To get it, load into The Arms Dealer Nightfall and instead of going left after the first corner as usual, go right instead and through the open door to where turrets are set up. Follow the path until you reach a storage crate that you can obtain a signal from, starting the quest.
The Dead Man’s Tale is quite the looker as far as Exotics go. Between its wood and metal chassis and the decorative golden trims, it’s a very sleek weapon. The Exotic perk, Cranial Spike, makes it so that landing chains of precision hits rewards you with improved damage and reload speed. Notably, there’s also a visible random rolls perk column like there was for Season of the Hunt’s Hawkmoon Exotic hand cannon. This means that later on during Season of the Chosen, we’ll have a way to farm for random rolls of the Dead Man’s Tale as well. There’s also a catalyst slot on the weapon, so you’ll probably get a catalyst from the random roll farm too.
What do you think of the weapon? Are you excited to get your hands on it? Let us know. Destiny 2’s latest expansion, Beyond Light, is available now for $40 on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Windows 10 PCs. The base game is free-to-play, and if you haven’t given it a try, I highly recommend you do as it’s one of the best Xbox One shooters available. If you do give it a shot, don’t miss my beginner’s guide on how to get into Destiny 2 in 2021 for some helpful tips.
