How to get the Gjallarhorn in Destiny 2 (And Out Fly The Wolves Exotic Quest)

The legend returns.

Loot is the primary driving force for Destiny 2, and while so many legacy weapons have made their way into the game, one rocket launcher remained absent from the roster. Thankfully, Bungie has heard the community's cries, and they've brought the Gjallarhorn back to Destiny.

For those unaware, the Gjallarhorn is one of Destiny's most famous weapons. Debuting in the original Destiny, this Exotic rocket launcher became synonymous with power. It was one of the most coveted weapons in the game, so players are understandably excited to see this weapon returning.

What is Needed to Begin the Quest

In order to get the quest required to obtain the Gjallarhorn, players will need to have purchased the Destiny 2: Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack. Once the pack has been purchased, all you need to do is go and visit Xur in Eternity. He will prompt you to speak with Shaw Han in the Cosmodrome, who will then send you on an Exotic Quest for the Gjallarhorn called And Out Fly The Wolves.

Completing the Quest

  • Step 1: Investigate the Loot Cave - Shaw Han will prompt you to investigate the Loot Cave, which just requires you to complete the Grasp of Avarice Dungeon (This can be completed on any difficulty).
  • Step 2: Return to Shaw Han - After completing the Dungeon, you will receive a Wolfpack Round. Take that item back to Shaw Han to continue with the Quest.
  • Step 3: Collect more Wolfpack Rounds - Shaw Han will ask to to collect more Wolfpack Rounds by defeating Powerful Fallen. We recommend running through the Exodus Garden 2A Lost Sector, as it can complete this step in one run.
  • Step 4: Return to Shaw Han - Speak again to Shaw Han who will prompt you to visit Banshee-44 in the Tower.
  • Step 5: Clear out one of the Fallen's old hideouts - Banshee-44 will tell you that to complete the Gjallarhorn, he will need a final component found in a Cosmodrome Lost Sector. That Lost Sector is Exodus Garden 2A, so run through it one more time.
  • Step 6: Assemble the Gjallarhorn - Return to Shaw Han and use his toolchest, located in the bottom floor of the building accross from him, to assemble the weapon
  • Step 7: Speak to Shaw Han one last time - Now all you have to do is speak one more time to Shaw Han and he will give you the completed Gjallarhorn Exotic Rocket Launcher.

So there you have it, that is how to get the Gjallarhorn in Destiny 2. This weapon also has a Catalyst for it that you will want to be sure to complete. Its steps are a little tougher but the Catalyst will help to place this Launcher back onto its rightful throne as the King of Destiny.
