Destiny 2 is back with Lightfall, an expansion that pits you against the Black Fleet and The Witness. Players will explore Neptune’s Neomuna, an uncharted planet, and gain access to the new subclass, Stand.
As with every Destiny 2 content refresh, there are new weapons and armor to discover, with Exotics being the most powerful of them all. In this guide, we’ll focus on Quicksilver Storm, one of the new weapons, and look into how to unlock it and what to expect.
How to get Quicksilver Storm Destiny 2 Lightfall
As with tradition with new Destiny 2 expansions, there are one or more bits of gear that you’ll be able to snap up right away if you opt for the Season/Annual passes. This is the same with the Quicksilver Storm Exotic auto rifle as you’ll need to pre-order Lightfall and its Annual Pass to unlock it instantaneously in the game.
If you have done this, to claim your weapon visit Master Rahool, the Tower’s Cryptarch. In his menu, you should be able to find any and all available Lightfall pre-order items, with the Quicksilver Storm located on the left side.
Once you have room in your inventory, you can select it from here and proudly call the gun yours.
After Lightfall launches, we’re sure that you’ll be able to pick up Quicksilver Storm somehow without needing the Annual Pass, but this will likely be tied to either story progression or a lucky drop from beating a boss.
We’ll be sure to update this guide as and when we find any further ways of obtaining Quicksilver Storm so you can get it for yourself without paying the price (literally).
Quicksilver Storm Destiny 2 Lightfall perks & traits
For the perks of this new Exotic auto rifle, you’re looking at Corkscrew Rifling, High-Caliber Rounds, Grenade Chaser, and Hand-Laid Stock. You’ve likely seen these a bunch of times on various weapons in the game so don’t instantly scream meta.
However, when you look at the Intrinisic Trait, unique to this weapon, this is called Rocket Tracers, rewarding multiple hits with a further homing bullet.
This could be incredibly useful in both PVE and PVP, allowing you to potentially get that last hit off while transitioning to your next target. Moreover, thanks to Quicksilver Storm’s max stability, you should be able to get the multiple hits off in an instant.
After Quicksilver Storm, if you’re looking to pick up other Exotics such as Final Warning, Deterministic Chaos, or Winterbite, read our helpful guides.
