Destiny 2 How to Get Coldheart Exotic Trace Rifle

Coldheart is an exotic trace rifle in Destiny 2. It’s the only weapon of its kind – a gun that shoots out a laser beam that lingers and does damage to everything it touches. At this point, it’s only available as a preorder bonus, but it will be unlocked for everyone at some point in December. Those who did get it now are having trouble finding it in the game, since it’s not at the vault or the postmaster. Naturally, they’re wondering how to get Coldheart in Destiny 2, even after they’ve redeemed their codes.

Where to Find Coldheart Exotic Rifle In-Game?

You can find the Coldheart at the gunsmith. But not right away. If you’ve preordered the game physically, you need to redeem the code you got on a piece of paper. If you preordered digitally, you can disregard this part. After that, you have to beat the game’s entire campaign. It’s only seventeen missions, so it’s not too long. Finally, you have to reach level 20 with your character. Once you’ve done all of that, you can go to the gunsmith and get your new gun.

So yeah, you’ll have to work a bit before you can get your hands on it. What did you think, that they’d give you an exotic at level one just for being a loyal fan? The good news is that the reward/item is tied to the account, which means every guardian you create will be able to get it this way. When it’s released to the general public in December, it’s probably going to be tied to some kind of tiresome quest.
