Guess who’s back, back again? Outbreak Prime! Back again
With the release of Destiny 1’s DLC Rise of Iron, ringing in the year 3 and final big update for the initial release of the Destiny franchise, came also a new raid and including that, a brand new raid specific weapon.

How to start the Outbreak Perfected Quest in Destiny 2
The quest starts simply by finding a small iteam on Titan in the heroic mission that you can play today with the new reset of the week starting today. The Flashpoint is also on TItan of course, so that makes sense. The steps to get that item is easy:
– Go to the room on the left after killing the shrieker in the heroic mission
– then walk into that room, go right and you’ll find it on the machin

The Old Tower Mission
Step 4 has you play through the mission “The Old Tower” which is a level 690 mission. So here is where most adventures come to an abrupt end and where only the highest level guardians can proceed. But consider yourself lucky, in this mission you will fight alongside Mithrax! Be cautious, this mission is very very difficult.
Getting the Outbreak Perfected gun
Here is the good part of the quest, once you completed the mission, the Outbreak Perfected weapon is yours at level 700 max power. Enjoy your new found power and let some heads pop in Destiny 2!
The new lore of the Outbreak Prime quest
The item description reads as follows: “A Fallen global positioning transponder, jury-rigged for operation by human hands. Its encrypted interface seems to require locational data. Beyond that, your Ghost can find nothing remarkable about this device except a brief plaintext message embedded in its header files.” Hmm… what does it mean? For now we know that this will most likely lead to the new Outbreak Prime weapon, as dataminers found with the huge update for the Season of the Drifter already the weapons artfact which gives the weapon a second unique and exotic look
History of Outbreak Prime
The weapon used to take you a full squad of 6 six people through the raid Wraith of the Machine at least twice, alongside a lengthy quest which requried you to play with one of each of the three classes together in a fireteam for some parts even. Oh and it did ask you to coordinate you to convert binary numbers into regular decimal numbers (111 = 7 for example) and so on. It was one awesome adventure that not everyone could partake in sadly due to the nature of raids, but once you got it all done, you got the Outbreak Prime.
The power of Outbreak Prime
It was a weapon to defeat enemies incredibly fast as you just needed to hit headshots, not necessary kills, to have small mites released by the enemey that slowly deal additional damage. It was incredible fun to play with and showed actually quite a lot what kind of stamina you had as a guardian and how well you could work together with a fireteam, be it randoms or your actual friends playing along with you.
