Destiny 2: How to complete The Lie quest and obtain Felwinter’s Lie

With the Guardian Games over, there’s not much left on Bungie’s calendar for the rest of Destiny 2’s Season of the Worthy. Luckily, a surprise quest just made its way into the game, which will take a lot of time to complete.

The new quest, called The Lie, is a little mysterious at the moment. While there’s no end reward listed, a datamine indicates that completing it will give players Felwinter’s Lie. This legendary shotgun was a beloved Iron Banner reward in the first Destiny game. If you want the gun, you’ll need to prepare yourself for a long grind. Here’s what you need to know to complete The Lie.

Warmind evaluation

When you start the game, head over to Mars and speak with Ana Bray. She’ll pass along a new task straight from Rasputin. The A.I. wants to gather data about the Seraph Towers, the new public events that were introduced in Season of the Worthy. If you haven’t opened all three bunkers yet, you’ll want to make sure you’ve done that.

Here’s where the grind comes in: Players will collectively need to complete 9,000,000 Seraph Tower events to get the next step. That means that each of the three Seraph Towers will need to be cleared 3,000,000 times. It’s a similar incentive that was used in last season’s Empyrean Foundation project, which brought Trials of Osiris back to the game.

UPDATE: This step is now complete, thanks to a slight scale back of the requirements. If you had the quest, you can now move on to the next step.


With that nightmare over, head back to Ana Bray. She’ll send you on a new mission, which will require you to go to the multiplayer map Vostok. You’ll find it in your director, so you don’t need to load into Crucible games for this. This is a quick mission that requires you to find three energy signatures and listen to some dialogue. It’s a cakewalk compared to the other steps, so enjoy this change of pace while you can.

Get 1,000 shotgun kills

If you thought you were done with the grind, here’s some bad news: the next step requires you to get 1,000 shotgun kills. There’s no real trick here either; you just need to start killing. Focus on PvE activities that spawn a large number of enemies. Seraph Towers is a good place to grind if you’re not sick of it already. Otherwise, the Escalation Protocol event will give you a lot of thralls to kill. Equip your favorite shotgun, preferably one with a high rate of fire, and get to work.

Warmind Heuristics

This part was previously bugged, but a new hotfix has finally given players access to the final step. To complete this, head to Mars and talk to Rasputin. After that chat, interact with the Seraph Bunker door and you’ll enter a new mission called “The Tyrant.” This is fortunately pretty straightforward. You’ll follow objective markers and get a little bit of backstory about the Felwinter. After ducking through some vents, you’ll see a sarcophagus. Interact with it and you’ll finally obtain Felwinter’s Lie.

Make sure to pick this up before Season of the Worthy ends on June 9, as the quest will no longer be accessible after that date.

Meta revealed that it is bringing down the price of some of its most expensive VR headsets. The Meta Quest Pro will now cost $1,000 instead of $1,500, while the 256 GB model of the Meta Quest 2 will drop in price from $500 to $430.

This news was announced in a blog post, where Meta gave its reasoning for the price drop. "Our goal has always been to create hardware that’s affordable for as many people as possible to take advantage of all that VR has to offer," it explains. "While we aren’t lowering the price of Meta Quest 2’s 128GB SKU, a new lower price for 256GB of storage will let even more people feel the joy of fully immersive games and experiences. Similarly, by lowering the price of Meta Quest Pro, we’re making our industry-leading Meta Reality technology and Infinite Display optical stack available to even more businesses and professionals around the world."
