Destiny 2 Memento quest guide: How to get the Bastion exotic fusion rifle

According to Bungie’s Season of Dawn road map, Destiny 2 was scheduled to get the new Bastion exotic fusion rifle on January 28. But one week after a mysterious quest line dropped into the game that kept the Destiny community working 24/7, Bastion is officially available one week early. 

Before January 21, players needed to complete the extremely complicated Exploring The Corridors of Time quest to get the rifle. The quest contained a gigantic puzzle that took the Destiny community a full week to solve. While the most diligent Destiny 2 players access the Bastion questline early, it is now unlocked for all players.

Players will still have plenty of hoops to jump through to obtain Bastion, especially compared to the incredibly brief Devil’s Ruin quest from earlier this season. To save yourself a big headache, here’s everything you need to know to obtain Bastion.

Step 1: Collect Fallen Intel

To start the quest, all you need to do is talk to Saint-14 in the Tower. You can now grab the exotic quest directly from him. If you’ve yet to unlock Saint-14 in the Tower, make sure you’ve completed the first two Corridors of Time quests.

Saint-14 will ask you to head to The Tangled Shore and gather five pieces of Fallen intel. All you have to do here is kill five servitors or captains. Your best bet is to load into the Thieves’ Landing zone and clean up the enemies around there. Servitors and captains hang out in that area regularly, plus you’ll have quick access to two lost sectors, which have plenty of Fallen enemies to dispatch.

Step 2: Clear the Empty Tank lost sector

Next, you’ll need to speak to Spider on The Tangled Shore, who you’ll visit several times through the quest. He’ll ask you to kill Aksiniks, a Fallen captain who appears in the Empty Tank lost sector.

To find this lost sector easily, load into Thieves’ Landing again and walk straight ahead to the back wall of the area. Hug the back wall, walking up the raised railing, and you’ll see the usual lost sector markings on a door. This is the lost sector, where you essentially bust into a Fallen DJ club blasting Paul McCartney’s song from the first Destiny. It’s a real treat.

Complete the lost sector like you normally would, and you’ll eventually find Aksiniks in the boss room. Defeat him and get ready for a much more time-consuming quest step.

Step 3: Complete public events and bounties, kill challenging enemies

Head back to Spider, and he’ll give you a good old-fashioned checklist of things to do. He’ll ask you to complete eight public events on The Tangled Shore, do 10 of Spider’s bounties and kill 30 challenging enemies.

There’s no way to cheat this. Pick up as many Spider bounties as you can, and just wait for public events to load in on The Tangled Shore. You can likely knock out a few of his more general bounties while you’re doing public events, but most of them will involve you hunting down Wanted enemies across the solar system.

Luckily, the challenging enemies part is easier. You’ll naturally complete this as you’re doing public events, so don’t focus on this.

Step 4: Find the grave in the Trapper’s Cave lost sector

Head on back to Spider to receive another lost sector-centric step. This time, he’ll ask you to find a grave in the Trapper’s Cave lost sector. Trapper’s Cave is located right in the center of Four-Horn Gulch, so load into Thieves’ Landing and head on over. You’ll see the lost sector marking on a rock near the middle of the area.

Once inside, keep running straight until you see a small waterfall. Jump down the waterfall and immediately turn to your left. You’ll be able to interact with a blue aura, which is your hidden gravesite. 

Step 5: Complete the Hallowed Lair, Memento strike

After all that, it’s time to track down Bastion. Open up your director, and you’ll see a new strike on The Tangled Shore. This is a slight variation on the normal Hallowed Laid strike, called Hallowed Lair, Memento.

There’s not much of a difference between the original and tweaked strike, so just go through it normally until you hit the boss room. Once the fight starts, you’ll need to keep an eye out for a Scorn elite named Defiled Reysk, The Waning Light. Make sure to kill him and then finish the strike.

Finally, head back to Saint-14 on the Tower to receive Bastion. This exotic fusion rifle can be charged to fire three kinetic slugs, so get ready to cause some serious damage in the name of Saint-14.

How to get Hero Tokens in Spider-Man 2
Miles Morales and Peter Parker stand together in Spider-Man 2.

Is there any doubt that Peter Parker and Miles Morales are heroes by the time Spider-Man 2 takes place? As goofy as it sounds, you will still need to prove your hero status by earning what are known as Hero Tokens. Just like City Tokens, these are more conceptual objects than actual tokens, but are still required for some of the higher-level upgrades and unlocks for your tools in the game. Still, not every heroic action is deemed worthy of getting you Hero Tokens. If you want to know all the activities to collect as many as you can in Spider-Man 2, we've narrowed down your search.
How to get Hero Tokens

There are plenty of options for you to get Hero Tokens, but the most efficient are the Mysteriums. Also known as Mysterium dev diaries, these unlock after you meet Mysterio in the story and then they start to populate the map. There are only 10 of these, and they each consist of time trials that rank you based on time. Earning a gold will get you two Hero Tokens, while silver and bronze award you just one. So long as you're a skilled player and can get a gold time in one or two attempts, this is easily the fastest method to get these tokens. For one, you obviously have to go fast here, but when you get a gold, you also get the rewards for the two ranks below, so each Mysterium is really worth four tokens if you can master it.

The Prowler, aka Miles Morales' uncle, has hung up his hood and retired from his life of crime by the time Marvel's Spider-Man 2. Even so, after a talk with Miles, it is revealed that he left quite a few stashes of materials around the city that, since he is under house arrest, he can't access anymore. Rather than let them go to waste, you're sent out to collect these little resource caches to use for yourself. These are an easy way to earn yourself some Rare Tech Parts, but the Prowler didn't just leave them out in the open. Here is a breakdown of how you can access Prowler Stashes in Spider-Man 2.
How to open Prowler Stashes

Once you get into the area where a Prowler Stash is, the hunt begins. The first step is locating the stash, which is camouflaged, so you need to use your mask to track it down. By holding down L2, you can scan the area and follow the sounds until you narrow down the correct spot. You have to aim at the right spot and be close enough to reveal it.

Amid all the different tokens, memories, and photo-ops you need to collect in Marvel's Spider-Man 2, the one material that is both the most common and most necessary is Tech Parts. With the exception of your abilities, which only require skill points you earn by leveling up, essentially everything you can unlock or upgrade in the game will cost Tech Parts alongside one other material. You might think you will never run low early on when you start getting them in batches of over 100 at a time, but once you start unlocking all the slick new suits and styles and gadgets you want to upgrade, you'll realize just how desperate you are to get more. Your spider-sense can't help you with this one, so here are the best ways you can get Tech Parts in Spider-Man 2.

Tech Parts are the most basic upgrade component in Spider-Man 2, and the city is full of them. But you're better off using these methods to get them rather than others.
