Deathbringer is a new exotic weapon in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep. It’s a rocket launcher that uses ammo that can be remotely detonated, spilling void orbs over the unsuspecting targets. In order to get it, you’ll have to complete a long exotic quest, called Symphony of Death, which will require you to kill, loot and explore the Moon even further. If you’re stuck at any point during the quest, our Destiny 2 Deathbringer exotic rocket launcher guide will help you out.
How to start Symphony of Death quest?
First off, you’ll need to complete the main story. After that, talk to Eris Morn and she’ll give you the Memory of Sai Mota quest. It requires you to complete the Lunar Spelunker weekly bounty – which is just completing three lost sectors on the Moon – then bring the Firewall Data Fragment you earn there to the K1 Revelation lost sector. The console where you’re supposed to use it is through the big round tunnel with the yellow light.
You’ll get a new quest called Sai Mota’s Broken Necklace. That one will require you to defeat Nightmare enemies on the Moon using Arc abilities. Switch over to your Arc subclass and head on to Sorrow’s Harbor – that’s where they spawn the most. Go back to Eris, and she’ll give you the exotic quest, which is called Symphony of Death.
Faculties of the Skull
This one requires you to go to the Circle of Bones, which is marked on the map as being in the Hellmouth area. It’s actually underneath it, and in order to get there, you’ll have to use the big door in Archer’s Line and follow the underground tunnels through the Hall of Wisdom to reach it. The entrance is along the eastern border of the area – a big door with a green glow.
Once you pick up the Silent Skull at the end of the quest, you’ll get the next one, called Tainted Lullaby. It’s just a talk with Eris Morn, before you’re onto the next step.
Wandering Bone Collector – Marrow ‘s Elegy
This step requires you to collect three items: a Festering Bone from public events near Hellmouth, a Ritualistic Bone from the K1 Revelation lost sector (in Sorrow’s Harbor), and a Bone Collector’s Marrow. The last one comes from a Wandering Bone Collector, an enemy that randomly spawns in the Anchor of Light. He’s a high value target and an Acolyte.
High Conductor, Sulmakta – Thy Honored Conduction
For this step, you’ll have to kill a special enemy in the Scarlet Keep strike. His name is High Conductor, Sulmakta, and you’ll find him in the room where you take the big elevator to the boss. Jump off the elevator when it starts ascending, and kill adds in the room until you’re teleported up. Your target should be waiting for you there.
Discomfort, cries and screams – Of Darkest Harmony
This step will have you killing loads of enemies. You’ll need to kill regular enemies for discomfort, elites and mini bosses for pained cries, and either bosses or other players for anguished screams. Escalation Protocol is a good choice for this, but if you want to farm them in the new area, you can hunt the Nightmare’s in Sorrow’s Harbor – you get all three kinds of enemies there, and kills on the Moon are valued higher for this step.
Choir of the Damned – Deathsinger
This is a quest in the Circle of Bones, so use the route described above to get there. The recommended power level for this one is 920. It’s a pretty tough mission, but the key is to never stop applying pressure to the Deathsinger. There’s a debuff with a countdown, called Deathsong, and when it reaches zero, you’ll wipe. The only way to stop it is to kill the Deathsinger. This will make him run away and start over. So just make a beeline for the boss and nuke him whenever the countdown starts again. Once that is done, go back to Eris and you’ll get the Deathbringer.
