Leviathan's Breath Quest Steps

We aren't completely positive this quest is what will end up leading to the Leviathan's Breath, but based on how-it reads it seems pretty likely this will be the case. If anything changes once the weapon is available in game, we'll be sure to update this guide with the correct information.

Step 1: The Back Way

Banshee-44 wants to give you a weapon stored in his workshop, but he didn't specify how to get in.

Locate the hidden entrance to Banshee's workshop and find the weapon.

"Banshee said Cayde knew about some secret entrance. If it were up to me, I'd say we should start looking in the Hangar. It's where Cayde spent all his time." —Ghost

Step 2: Where Are the Keys, Sir

You found a Bow in a display case in a room that's got to be Banshee's workshop. Problem is, the case is locked.

Return to Banshee to complain. (Politely, of course.)

"Well. I can't say I'm surprised." —Ghost

Step 3: Intro to Safecracking 101

You need a rotating keycode to access the Bow in Banshee's workshop, but the original has been lost. You'll have to generate a new code following the same steps that Banshee did. First on Banshee's list is to get out into the field to seed a key generator with combat data.

Seed data for a new keycode by completing Gambit matches or Vanguard strikes. Gambit Prime matches and Nightfall strikes grant the most efficient progress.

"I'm still stuck on what would happen if we DID break the glass…" —Ghost

Step 4: Advanced Safecracking 201

The key generator is seeded with viable combat data, and it can now output keycodes… but to constrain the possible set of generated codes, Ghost says you'll need to provide the generator with some more targeted data. Literally.

Use a Bow to land precision final blows against Vex or Cabal.

"This will bring us down to something like… hmm… 32,000 possible codes? Somewhere around there." —Ghost

Step 5: Economics of War

The key generator needs just a little more data before you're ready to return to Banshee for final authentication. To further limit the possible codes the generator can create, you'll have to recreate the conditions under which Banshee programmed the first codes: fighting Red Legion forces during the Red War.

Complete an epic reprise of strike "The Arms Dealer" in the European Dead Zone on Earth.

"Think we'll have time to drop by to say hi to Devrim? It's been a little while…" —Ghost

Step 6: Applied Cryptosecurity

You've completed all the necessary calibrations on the key generator. The only thing remaining is a biometric authentication from Banshee.

Return to Banshee-44 in the Tower.

"This has been refreshingly straightforward." —Ghost
