With the launch of Destiny 2: The Forsaken, Bungie has introduced new exotic armaments, each of which can count on specific perks (needless to say, each of them needs a specific way to be obtained). In this guide, we will tell you how to get Black Talon, one of the most sought after by players due to the fact that despite being a sword, it also allows you to shoot projectiles (but be careful not to waste them).
How to Get Black Talon in Destiny 2
If you thought to get it you just had to shoot and kill, we have bad news for you: this sword, in fact, can only be dropped by an exotic engram. We still have an advice for you: try to focus on doing activities with higher chances of receiving an exotic engram as a reward.
Unfortunately, it seems that Bungie has nerfed the drop of this kind of content from heroic public events but you can do your best by killing high-value targets and doing strikes. And if you are not scared by tough challenges, remember the Nightfall still has the best chance of dropping exotic engrams as well.
