It’s a pretty straightforward list of tasks, but starting it can be tricky. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to get Destiny Nova Mortis, how to complete the exotic quest.

Before you get the quest, you’ll need to get rank 7 in the Competitive Spirit record book. This is pretty straightforward, and only requires you to do stuff you’d probably do anyway – Vanguard Elite milestones, sparrow races, etc. Once you’ve hit rank 7, you’ll get Xur’s Tag. Go to the Tower Plaza and use it to open the giant present (the middle one).

Songs from the Void exotic quest

Here are the steps you need to take in order to complete the quest:

  1. Talk to Ikora Rey.
  2. Talk to Banshee-44
  3. Get Void ability kills. You can do it on an activity, or in patrol. It doesn’t really matter. Equip a void weapon and some void grenades, and off you go.
  4. Once you’ve got enough kills, go back to Banshee-44.
  5. Start the Abomination Heist strike on the Moon. Play on normal difficulty, and make sure you kill the Hive Abomination.
  6. Return to Ikora Rey for your prize.

The Nova Mortis has an attack rating of 370, a great rate of fire and a medium-sized magazine. It’s a great choice when you’ve got enemies that are weak to Void damage, or when you need to spray bullets to supress an opponent. Its stopping power is nothing to joke about, and the reload speed is adequate at the very least. We don’t know if this quest will stop appearing after the Dawning ends, so you should get your hands on the weapon while the event is still taking place.
