Step 1

Upon unlocking the quest, head over to Nimbus at the front of the Hall of Heroes. Speak with them to begin your first real objective in the game.

Step 2

After speaking with Nimbus, they’ll inform you that you need to head to the Veil Containment and look for Strand-inoculated gadgets in this location. You can reach this area by making your way through the Zephry Concourse and through the Esi Terminal. When you arrive, take a left, and jump onto the ramp while following the path forward, and there will be a portal that will take you to the Veil Containment area.

Step 3

When you arrive in this area, multiple Cabal will spawn. It turns out the Shadow Legion are following orders, and you’ll need to fight through them to figure out what they were up to. You’ll have to fight off a handful of Cabal waves before fighting against the mini-boss for the area. After defeating them, they’ll drop the Shadow Legions’ orders, and you’ll learn of your next destination: the Typhon Imperator, where you can find the Veil spectrometer.

Step 4

The progression into the Typhon Imperator should be relatively straightforward, with a waypoint marker laying out what paths you should take. When you arrive at the large room, the waypoint indicator will highlight a specific target in the middle of the large path, and they’ll have the item you need to find. The target will be a Tormentor, so expect a fight when you reach this location.

Step 5

After defeating the Tormentor, you’ll receive the blueprint for the Veil spectrometer, and you can return to the Pouka Pond to examine it back at the Hall of Heroes.

Step 6

The final step is to complete Osiris’ training program within 5 minutes and 30 seconds. This will be the Headlong: Time Trial, and you can find it on the map to return the weapon.

Step 7
