Destiny 2: Wicked Implement Exotic Quest



Destiny 2 players have been blessed with a brand-new Exotic weapon in Season of the Deep. This latest addition to the arsenal, the formidable Wicked Implement, is a Scout Rifle imbued with the immense power of Xivu Arath. However, obtaining this coveted Exotic will not come easy, as players must embark on a time-consuming quest and face a challenging timed mission. If players wish to wield the Wicked Implement, they must prepare themselves for a unique endeavor… fishing.

Destiny 2 players are no strangers to Exotic Quests, but the Wicked Implement quest proves to be one of the more difficult ones. To secure this Exotic Scout Rifle before the conclusion of Season of the Deep in August, players must act swiftly. Season 21 beckons players to brave the perils of the Methane Sea on Titan. Here’s how to acquire the Wicked Implement in Destiny 2.

Step 1: Fishing in the Throne World
The first step of the quest takes players to Savathun’s Throne World. Hidden within the Miasma Fish Pond lies a secret objective that requires players to temporarily set aside their weapons and engage in the art of fishing. Players must patiently cast their lines until they are fortunate enough to catch the elusive Whispering Mothcarp fish. This Exotic fish is crucial for progressing through the subsequent steps of this clandestine Destiny 2 Exotic quest. Catching Exotic fish is a matter of chance, but players must persevere and use their Bait wisely to increase their odds of success in Savathun’s Throne World.

Step 2: Fishing in Nessus
Players must then journey to Nessus, disregarding Failsafe’s presence. Upon reaching Nessus, players should swiftly race to The Cistern, located near the Pools of Luminance. Here, players will find another Fish Pond where they can indulge in the calming activity of fishing amidst the radiolarian pools, colloquially known as “Vex Milk.” The specific fish players must catch here is the Vex Placoderm, a fish infused with Vex energy. This unique fish is essential for the next step of the quest, and players must exercise patience and come prepared with ample Bait to increase their chances of success.

Step 3: Fishing in the EDZ
The third and final Exotic fish required to initiate the new Exotic mission for the Wicked Implement weapon in Destiny 2 is the Aeonian Alpha-Betta. Players must visit the Outskirts in the EDZ to access the Fish Pond where this fish resides. With fishing rod in hand, players must wait diligently for the Aeonian Alpha-Betta to bite. Patience is key, and players must possess an abundance of both Bait and patience to successfully catch this Exotic fish. Once players have secured all three fish, they can resume their war against Xivu Arath.

Step 4: Deposit at the H.E.L.M.
After obtaining the Whispering Mothcarp, Vex Placoderm, and Aeonian Alpha-Betta, players must temporarily set aside their fishing rods and navigate to the H.E.L.M. via the destinations tab. At the Sonar Station, players will discover an Aquarium where they can deposit their fish, much like depositing motes in the PvPvE activity known as Gambit. Upon releasing all three Exotic fish into the deposit box, players will receive a random Exotic weapon and the most crucial item for progressing through the quest: the Broken Blade of Strife for the Whispering Mothcarp, the Broken Blade of Ambition for the Vex Placoderm, and the Broken Blade of Cunning for the Aeonian Alpha-Betta. These three fragmented legendary items will play a pivotal role in the events to come. To proceed with the Wicked Implement Exotic Quest, players must possess all three Broken Blades.

Step 5: Deep Dive Hive Statue Location #1
The next step of the Destiny 2 Exotic quest requires players to participate in a Deep Dives activity. This activity can be completed solo, with a Fireteam, or with randomly matched players. It is advised to assemble a competent Fireteam that is also undertaking the Exotic quest, as further challenges lie ahead. Players should progress through the activity as usual, descending into the Methane Sea of Titan after obtaining Ahsa’s Gift and opening the door. Upon encountering a cluster of yellow coral, players should veer right and descend further to locate the first Hive Statue in the Deep Dives activity. Here, players can offer the broken blade and ignite the Hive Statue with an orange flame. A message will appear, indicating that the story has not yet unfolded. Xivu Arath’s voice will echo, proclaiming, “LET SPILL INTO THE SEAS OF TITAN, UNTIL THE TIDES RETREAT AT MY NAME.”

Step 6: Deep Dive Hive Statue Location #2
After clearing the Twilight area of the Deep Dive and completing the first encounter of 1000 Meters in the Methane Sea, players can proceed with the quest. The next Hive Statue is not located in the subsequent section but rather in the same area as the Twilight mission room. Players can find this location by heading towards Ahsa’s Gift and turning left. Upon reaching a wired floor, players can jump up and discover a previously locked door. Within this room lies the second Hive Statue of the Deep Dive activity. There is nothing else within this room aside from the oddly placed Statue, which appears identical to the first but in a different location. Players can offer the Broken Blade of Ambition to ignite the Hive Statue and receive the message “A bladed offering, accepted…” Xivu Arath will then confirm the completion of this step with an exclamation: “THE WHETSTONE AWAITS. BRING YOUR VIOLENCE LIKE A WAVE AGAINST MINE STONES.”

Step 7: Deep Dive Hive Statue Location #3
Once the second Hive Statue has been bestowed with the Blade of Ambition, players must continue their journey through the Deep Dive activity, starting from 1000 Meters in the Methane Sea and descending further. At 2000 Meters, players should veer left, following the air bubbles and avoiding the bottom. Staying to the left, players will discover the final Hive Statue in the Deep Dive, bringing them one step closer to claiming a new Exotic for their collection. Here, players can offer the final Broken Blade of Cunning, receiving the message “A bladed offering, accepted…” and another resounding declaration from Xivu Arath: “BLADED AND SCABBARD PART WAYS! BARE YOUR VIOLENCE UPON MINE ALTAR.”

Step 8: Complete the Midnight Area
At 2750 Meters in the Methane Sea, players must complete the activity in the Midnight area but forego the usual route to continue the Deep Dive. Instead, they should head…

Destiny 2 players are no strangers to Exotic Quests, but this one is one of the harder ones. Players will want to be fast to claim this Exotic Scout Rifle before Season of the Deep closes out in August. Season 21 will see players embark on the dangers in the Methane Sea of Titan, and here’s how to get Wicked Implement in Destiny 2.



Step 1: Fishing In The Throne World

For the first step of the quest, players will need to venture to Savathun’s Throne World. There is a secret objective that lies within the Miasma Fish Pond, where players need to put aside their weapons against the Scorn and Lucent Hive to go fishing until they have gotten lucky and recovered the Whispering Mothcarp fish.

The Whispering Mothcarp is one of the Exotic fish in Destiny 2and players will need to catch this great bounty if they are going to progress through the steps of this secret Destiny 2 Exotic quest. Considering the catch rate for Exotic fish is completely RNG based, some players might wait a while, but it’s vitally important that players just stick to it, and keep trying to use their Bait and luck to find a Whispering Mothcarp in Savathun’s Throne World.

The only real trick to fishing in Destiny 2 is patience. However, players can influence the RNG of the Fish Pond ever so slightly by not picking up the fish they catch immediately. Players should let their stacks of Legendary and Exotic fish build up until the next Fish Pond appears so that when they do pick up all their fish from the previous Fish Pond, the Focused Fishing will be enhanced. Each bar filled with Focused Fishing will enhance the odds of catching Legendary and Exotic fish.

Step 2: Fishing In Nessus

Players are going to want to fly their ships over to Nessus and ignore Failsafe for this one. Once players arrive at Nessus, the best idea they can have is to Sparrow race over to The Cistern, near the Pools of Luminance. Once players locate the Fish Pond, it’s time to pull away from that itchy Vex-killing trigger finger, and enjoy a bout of fishing upon the radiolarian pools, or “Vex Milk”.

Players are looking for one fish in particular; an Exotic fish named “Vex Placoderm”. This Vex-infused fish is vital for the next step, where players will want to once again venture off to the H.E.L.M. Like always, fishing is RNG based, so players need to stay patient, and bring plenty of Bait if they are to get lucky enough to catch one of these Exotic fish to proceed with the quest ahead.

Step 3: Fishing In The EDZ

The third and final Exotic fish that players will need to start the new Exotic mission for the Wicked Implement Exotic weapon in Destiny 2 is the Aeonian Alpha-Betta. The Fish Pond that players want to access is at the Outskirts in the EDZ, and players will want to keep their fishing rod steady for the Aeonian Alpha-Betta.

It’s a waiting game at this point, and players will just have to keep plenty of bait on hand, and plenty of patience in their minds if they are to catch this Exotic fish. However, with this third and final fish, players can pick up their guns and resume the war with Xivu Arath.

Step 4: Deposit At The H.E.L.M.

After obtaining the Whispering Mothcarp fish, the Vex Placodermand the Aeonian Alpha-Bettaplayers will then need to put aside their fishing rod and venture through their destinations tab to enter the H.E.L.M. By the Sonar Station, players will find their Aquarium, where they will be able to deposit their fish like motes in PvPvE’s Gambit.

After releasing all three Exotic fish into the deposit box, players will receive a random Exotic, along with the most important item to progress through the quest. Players will receive the Broken Blade of Strife for the Whispering Mothcarp, the Broken Blade of Ambition for handing in the Vex Placoderm, and finally the Broken Blade of Cunning for the Aeonian Alpha-Betta. These three fragmented legendary items will be used in the events to come. Players must have all three Broken Blades to progress through the Wicked Implement Exotic Quest.

Step 5: Deep Dive Hive Statue Location #1

For the next step of the Destiny 2 Exotic quest, players will need to head into a Deep Dives activity. This can be done solo, with a Fireteam, or with three random players. It’s advised to run the Deep Dive activity with a competent Fireteam that is all doing the Exotic quest, as there are further challenges that await.

Players should progress as normal, dropping down the hatch after receiving Ahsa’s Gift, and then opening the door to further descend into the Methane Sea of Titan. Players will want to head right as they come to the cluster of yellow coral, and right again, dropping down to find the first Hive Statue in the Deep Dives activity.

Here, players can offer the broken blade, and doing so will light up the Hive Statue with an orange flame. A small written text will appear saying “A bladed offering, accepted…” indicating that the story has not yet unfolded. Meanwhile, Xivu Arath will shout: “LET SPILL INTO THE SEAS OF TITAN, UNTIL THE TIDES RETREAT AT MY NAME.

Step 6: Deep Dive Hive Statue Location #2

After clearing out the Twilight area of the Deep Dive, and completing the first encounter of 1000 Meters in the Methane Sea, players can proceed with the quest. The next Hive statue is not located in the next section, but instead, in the same area as the Twilight mission room. Players can find this location by heading to Ahsa’s Gift, and then looking left. Running this way will see a wired floor, where players can jump up and locate a once-locked door.

Within this room lies the second Hive Statue of the Deep Dive activity. There is nothing else in this room other than the strangely placed Statue, identical to the first but in a different area. Players can offer the Broken Blade of Ambition to ignite the Hive Statue, and receive the text “A bladed offering, accepted…” Xivu Arath will then shout to confirm the completion of this step: “THE WHETSTONE AWAITS. BRING YOUR VIOLENCE LIKE A WAVE AGAINST MINE STONES.”

Step 7: Deep Dive Hive Statue Location #3

After the second Hive Statue has been given the Blade of Ambition, they will want to continue through the Deep Dive activity, starting from 1000 Meters in the Methane Sea, and heading further down. Once at 2000 Meters, players will want to head left, following the air bubbles and not falling to the bottom.

Keeping to the left, players will find the final Hive statue in the Deep Dive that will get them one step closer to claiming a new Exotic for their collection. Here, players can offer the final Broken Blade of Cunning, receiving the last “A bladed offering, accepted…” and another angry voice line from Xivu Arath that says “BLADED AND SCABBARD PART WAYS! BARE YOUR VIOLENCE UPON MINE ALTAR.

Step 8: Complete The Midnight Area

At 2750 Meters in the Methane Sea, players will want to complete the activity in the Midnight area, but not venture through the normal route to continue the Deep Dive. Instead, they will want to head right, to where the once locked room is now open to all in the Fireteam. Here, all members of the Fireteam will need to interact with the two Hive Statues opposite each other and hold the interaction button to Carve a Path of Violence.

Jumping through the water gate next to these Hive Statues, players will proceed through the Wrathborn Sink area. It’s a long area, but there is only one way to go. As players progress, they will fight Khull, Executioner Knightwho is a Taken Knight boss who teleports away after hitting the damage threshold.

Players will then make it to The Drowninga Restricted Zone that sees the architecture of the Darkness’ Pyramid ships return. Players need to make sure that they are stocked up on ammo, with their builds and supers at the ready, as the moment they proceed forward, they will begin the biggest challenge of this new Exotic Quest in Destiny 2: a timed mission.

Step 9: Complete The Mission In Less Than 10 Minutes

Once players enter The Drowning, they will face off against The Taken. From this starting point, players have ten minutes to clear the areas. It’s best to keep on top of the Taken that spawn and shoot the Pyramid structures to open doors. This is a Darkness Zone, so failure is not an option throughout this entire encounter.

Players will need to kill Omen, Blade of the Black Terrace in the Tirtha Bind area, which is very much like a maze. Players need to seek out the “Honed” Taken enemies to get the Deathly Sharp buff to x3 to find and damage the boss. From here, they will have around a minute to damage the boss, who has rather frantic movements, and a lot of health, considering it’s a deadly Tormentor.

Once defeated, players will want to run through the area and locate the Darkness statue, where they will Claim Powerand receive the Exotic Scout Rifle: Wicked Implement. This Exotic Scout Rifle is Kinetic and Stasis powered, thus congratulating players on a job well done.
