In Destiny 2, Bungie has introduced a concept of Pinnacle Weapons in each season. In the past, these particularly challenging to obtain weapons were limited to Crucible activities. In Season 4, the Luna’s Howl was the Pinnacle Weapon of the Crucible. Not every Guardian enjoys time in the Crucible, however, so Bungie has expanded the Pinnacle Weapons program in Season 5 to add a Pinnacle Weapon for the Vanguard and one for Gambit.
Loaded Question – Vanguard Pinnacle Weapon
In this guide, we’ll give you an overview on how you can obtain the Loaded Question, Season 5’s Vanguard Pinnacle Weapon.
According to the This Week At Bungie post that introduced the Loaded Question, it is a high-impact Fusion Rifle of the Arc persuasion. Its unique perk is Reservoir Burst: “When the battery is full, your next burst deals additional damage and causes enemies to explode on death.”
How to Get Loaded Question
As you may have guessed, you’ll have to complete tasks for Commander Zavala to earn the right to wield the Loaded Question. These are the steps required:
- Pick up the quest from Zavala
- Complete all the following objectives; you can make progress toward these goals at the same time
- 500 Fusion Rifle kills (in any strike or Nightfall)
- 1000 Arc kills (in any strike or Nightfall)
- 40 strike or Nightfall completions
- Head back to Zavala to receive a fully Masterworked Loaded Question
The requirements are too complicated, however, running 40 strikes or Nightfalls will undoubtedly require some time commitment, and immunity to boredom. Good luck with that!
