Exotic Cipher is an extremely rare currency in Destiny 2. Until today, there was only one way to get it. Now, pretty much everyone has one, thanks to the Helsom memorial quest. All these new cipher owners are now wondering how they can use this new item – the description points you in the right direction, but it might be too vague. Besides, who reads these things? This guide will show you how to use Destiny 2 exotic cipher.
How to use exotic cipher in Destiny 2?
If you look at the description of the exotic cipher, you’ll see you can give it to the Cryptarch or Xur. You’ll also see you can hold only one of those in your inventory – this means both your person and the vault – so it’s probably best to use it as soon as you get it.
If you bring it to Master Rahool, you’ll be able to exchange it (and a bunch of other resources) for an exotic weapon from the olden days. You’ll need glimmer and Enhancement Prisms, along with some planetary materials. The available weapons include Eriana’s Vow, Bastion, Devil’s Run, Symmetry and more.
If you’re not intereted in any of the weapons the Cryptarch has to offer, you can wait for Xur and bring it to him instead. He’ll give you another exotic engram in exchange for it. There’s no telling what you’ll get, but even a chance to get something nice is better than nothing.
How to get exotic cipher?
There’s only one way to get exotic ciphers, apart from the memorial quest on Mars. It’s the season pass – there’s one at rank 55 of the free track in the Season of Arrivals. This means everyone can get it. Hopefully next season’s pass will have at least one as well – it’s a neat way to complete your collection.
