The Truth isn’t a difficult weapon to obtain as Destiny 2 Exotics go, but it will take you quite some time to earn thanks to the lengthy requirements. You’ll need to beat Nightfalls, Menagerie activities and more, meaning you’re in for the long haul. If you want to unlock the Truth Exotic Rocket Launcher, follow the stages below:

To start things off you need to go for a round of the Menagerie on Leviathan. Once you complete it, open the chest at the end and you’ll get the quest item for the Truth Exotic Rocket Launcher. From here, head to the Dreaming City to have a chat with Petra. Next, you’ll be tasked with completing an Ascendant Challenge. This will depend on what’s available to you this week, so check what’s currently available and get to work on that.

This is where the real task begins. You’ll now be asked to track down four map pieces. These can be tough to find, but thankfully we’ve got the locations for you already. One can be found in any Ascendant chest in the Dreaming City, another by completing any Nightfall. The next is in the Mindbender’s Room, Jestsum of Saturn, in Tangled Shore. Finally, you’ll find the last in the Cistern on Nessus while Ascendant. Oddly, it appears you can also buy the map parts from Petra. This may be removed, but you can save yourself some time if they’re still available for you.

Each map part has a task you need to complete, including 100 Hive Kills in Tangled Shore, 50 rocket launcher kills while Ascendant on Nessus, completing three Nightfalls with 60 rocket launcher kills and a handicap of 100 or more, and finish a Corsair Down bounty.

Once all of those are complete you’ll need to jump into the Warden of Nothing Strike. Make sure you have plenty of Tincture of Queensfoil before you do this, as it’s essential to earning the Truth Exotic Rocket Launcher. Play through the Strike and pick up five artifacts while you do so. This will summon the platforms that lean you to the chest. After the boss is beaten, use your Tincture of Queensfoil to see the platforms at the back of the arena. Follow them down to the chest which contains the Truth Exotic Rocket Launcher.

That’s a long series of steps, so we’ve summarized them below in shorthand form:

  1. Finish the Menagerie
  2. Visit Petra
  3. Complete an Ascendant Challenge
  4. Find the four map pieces in:
    1. Any Ascendant chest in the Dreaming City
    2. Any Nightfall
    3. The Mindbender’s Room, Jestsum of Saturn, Tangled Shore
    4. Cistern, Nessus, while Ascendant
  5. Complete the map piece challenges:
    1. 100 Hive Kills in Tangled Shore
    2. Three Nightfalls, Handicap 100+, with 60 rocket launcher kills
    3. 50 rocket launcher kills while Ascendant on Nessus
    4. A Corsair Down bounty
  6. Complete the Warden of Nothing Strike, collecting five artifacts
  7. Use Tincture of Queensfoil and follow the platforms at the back to the chest
  8. Claim your reward of the Truth Exotic Rocket Launcher!
