Leviathan’s Breath is an exotic weapon in Destiny 2. It’s a bow that fires heavy bolts that can stagger enemies. You can get it by completing Make Bows, Not War, a long quest chain for Banshee-44, the gunsmith at the Tower. It’s pretty straightforward, apart from the first step. It’s called Back Way, and it requires you to find a hidden entrance into Banshee’s workshop, which isn’t marked on the map. If you’re having trouble with any of the steps, keep reading our Destiny 2 Leviathan’s Breath exotic bow quest guide.
Back Way – how to enter Banshee’s workshop?
The first step is the most problematic. It requires you to find the hidden entrance into Banshee’s workshop, but doesn’t give you any hints or map markers to follow. To get there, go to the hangar and climb the staircase to the right of the entrance. Follow the walkway to the other side of the door, then use the pipes to get to the other walkway – the one above the entrance. Go into the big round pipe, then through the vent into the red room. Turn around and go through the door next to the vent, then drop down into the room with the robot. Follow the path into the tiny warehouse, and look for a hole in the ceiling – you’ll spot it by the golden glow. Jump up there, follow the tunnels, jump up the platforms in the silo, and you’ll end up in the workshop.
It turns out the case is locked. Go back to the gunsmith and talk to him about it.
Intro to Safecracking 101
The next step requires you to “seed data for a new keycode”, which can be accomplished by completing Gambit matches or Strikes. The description mentioned Gambit Prime and Nightfall are the most efficient ways – we did Nightfall, and it only took two.
Advanced Safecracking 201
The next step is about landing precision final blows with a bow. You’ll need to do it on Vex or Cabal enemies, so your best bet would be the Vex Invasion on the Moon. They appear around public event areas, but only after the event is over. If, for some reason, you prefer Cabal, you can go to the EDZ and wait for them to drop from the sky near the church in Trostland.
Economics of War – how to complete Arms Dealer strike
This is the last step in which you have to actually do something that isn’t talking or going to the damn workshop again. It requires you to complete the Arms Dealer strike in the EDZ. It’s going to be harder than usual, so make sure to take it slowly. Going in with a well-coordinated team would be the smart thing to do, if you can gather enough people.
