Once in a while, Destiny 2 provides us with weapons that almost break the game. Weapons such as Whisper Of The Worm, The Recluse, The Mountaintop, Telesto, etc. are such great examples. Now, Destiny 2 has introduced another such weapon called the Ager’s Scepter.
Ager’s Scepter is a Stasis Exotic Trace Rifle that was introduced in the Season Of The Lost. The reason that this weapon became so desirable is because of the Stasis sub-class. This weapon is slowly becoming a huge part of many characters builds that are literally being used in the Grandmasters this season. The Grandmaster Nightfalls were made available on October 5 in the Season of the Lost.
So, how does one get this weapon or How to get Ager’s Scepter Destiny 2?
How To Get Ager’s Scepter Destiny 2
Before we jump into how to get the weapon, let’s talk about the Exotic perks of the weapon and also a little about the lore behind it.
The Ager’s Scepter is a Stasis Exotic Trace Rifle in the Kinetic slot. It shoots 1000 rounds per minute and also has the exotic perk Ager’s Call. The perk creates a slowing burst of stasis energy that freezes all enemies around a defeated target. The perk in the third column of this weapon transfers ammo to the magazine of this weapon directly from the reserves.
Talking about the lore behind this weapon, the weapon was actually meant for Mara Sov’s brother, Uldren Sov but during the events of the Forsaken timeline, the Guardian killed Undren Sov, who was brought back in the form of a Guardian called Crow. But since Crow didn’t have any memories of Uldren, the weapon was offered to the Guardian by Mara.
Now, how do you obtain this weapon?
The Quest for thos weapon has been added to the destiny content vault but it can be obtained from Beyond Light section of the Monuments Of Lost Light for 200 Helium Filaments, 125,000 Glimmer, 1 Ascendant Shard and 1 Exotic Cipher. The catalyst of the weapon can be found by doing Playlist Activities.
The process of obtaining this weapon is very easy when compared to other exotic weapons that had/have similar types of quests.
