How to get The Last Word in Destiny 2 – The Draw Quest Guide

For when you just want to end a conversation.

The Last Word has returned to us in Destiny 2. For folks who never played the original Destiny, The Last Word is one of the standout Exotics in the game. Evoking a serious gunslinger style, The Last Word is a hard-hitting, fast-firing Exotic Hand Cannon that can be fully auto fired until your enemies are pulp. It has also benefited greatly from recent changes to Hand Cannons, so if you are a fan of fast-firing from the hip, this is for you.

Because The Last Word was tied to areas that have since been vaulted and quests that you can no longer play, you can now get the weapon by visiting the Exotic Archive in the Tower. This is where you will need to go to get any Exotics that have had their quest paths interrupted by the content vault.

To get the Ace of Spades, you will need the following resources:

  • 1 Exotic Cipher
  • 125,000 Glimmer
  • 200 Etheric Spiral
  • 1 Ascendant Shard

Exotic Ciphers

These are difficult to get, and each weapon from the Archive needs one in order to obtain it. You can only obtain them from the Season Pass, or by completing a weekly mission for Xur. You can also only hold one at a time, putting a lot of pressure on you to get the other resources you need if there are lots of guns you want to get over the course of the season. You can also get them from some Triumphs.

Etheric Spiral

This is the planetary resource that you can get from Tangled Shore. If you equip the right mods on your Ghost Shell you will be able to find chests and resource nodes quickly and easily, making farming it up pretty easy to do. You can also earn some by doing patrols, Public Events, and completing some Bounties for The Spider.

Ascendant Shards

Another difficult to get resource, you can find a full guide on how to get them here. To give you a brief overview, you will need to get them from the following sources:

  • You can buy them from Banshee-44 in the Tower
  • Via the later stages of the Season Pass
  • Nightfall: The Ordeal at Master difficulty or higher
