This week it’s time to unleash the power of Truth, an exotic rocket launcher that is making its first appearance in Destiny 2. Our guide will help you through the various steps to unlocking Truth.
A Scrap of Paper
It all starts with a round of Menagerie. Simply fire up the activity from the director and complete it as usual. This week’s boss is Anurak and we’ve got a guide on how to defeat him if you need assistance. Once you open the chest to get your rewards, you’ll also receive A Scrap of Paper, the initial quest step towards discovering Truth.
Hidden Between Realities
Take the Scrap of Paper to Petra Venj in the Dreaming City and she’ll give you a brief backstory of Truth. She translates the notes and explains that your next step is to complete the Ascendant Challenge. Reddit has a handy guide of where all the Ascendant Challenges are located, as they rotate on a weekly basis.
A Map Asunder
At the time of the writing of this guide, there appears to be a bug where Petra Venj will let you retrieve all four map fragments from her inventory as if they were abandoned quests. It’s safe to assume that Bungie will fix this, so here is how you can find the fragments the intended way.
The first map fragment appears to drop from any ascendant chest you open. You can do that inside the Aphelion’s Rest lost sector right below Petra, or even right above the temple she sometimes hangs out in. You’ll need to ascendant to see the chest, though not to open it. It’s located just after the boss fight on your way out before jumping down the ledge.
To decode this map fragment, you have to defeat Hive in the Tangled Shore. Defeating challenging ones will provide faster progress. Just go to the Tangled Shore and hit up a few of the Hive lost sectors in Jetsam of Saturn until you’re done. In fact, the next map fragment can be found in that very area, so keep reading.
Jetsam of Saturn
Here you will have to defeat the Ogre at the end of the area inside the crashed Hive ship, the Hall of the Exalted, in Jetsam of Saturn. Along the way, you’ll likely kill a few of those Hive needed to decrypt the map fragment you found in Aphelion’s Rest.
Decoding this map fragment will take some time as you’ll need to complete three Nightfalls and defeat 60 enemies with rocket launcher final blows.
The Cistern on Nessus
This chest is a bit harder to find. Head northwest of the Cistern on Nessus and become ascendant. Then look for the platforms near the northern lake of white Vex goo. Follow the platforms until you reach a chest and open it.
To decode this map fragment, you’ll have to find the badge of a downed Corsair and return it to an outpost. Those bounties will drop randomly in the Dreaming City and hopefully, you haven’t been discarding them immediately as I have been.
The Fourth Map Fragment
To get the fourth map fragment, simply complete any Nightfall strike. In the end, when you open the chest, you will receive the map fragment.
To decode this map fragment, you have to get rocket launcher kills on Nessus while ascendant.
Warden of Nothing Strike
After you’ve decoded all the map fragments, you’ll be off to hit the Warden of Nothing strike. In this version of the strike, you’re looking for Awoken Relics. This video shows the location of all five of them and is very helpful.
At the conclusion of the strike, make sure you’re ascendant and look for the hidden platforms that will lead you to the chest containing Truth.
You’ll then get to have a small chat with a character or two, but Truth is now yours. Tess is also currently selling the Stolen Goods ornament for it.
