Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Leviathan’s Breath Exotic Quest Guide

The Destiny 2 exotic quest Make Bows not War has been released for owners of Season of the Undying season pass. The quest itself is one of the shortest exotic quest to have been released. The reward for this quest is a powerful heavy bow by the name of Leviathan’s Breath. Here is a step by step guide on how to get Leviathan’s Breath exotic bow in Destiny 2 Shadowkeep.

Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Leviathan’s Breath Exotic

Go find Banshee-44 in the Tower and talk to him. It will award you with access to the secret quest. After that, you will be asked to find Banshee’s hidden workshop in the tower.

To get to the hidden workshop, first, enter the Hanger in the tower then climb on top of the Future War Cult building, look for a platform that lacks a safety railing and jump on to it. From there, navigate vents until you reach the old postmaster’s room. In this room, use the shelves to climb up into another vent. Continue forward until you reach a mini jumping puzzle in a cylindrical room and continue upwards. Finally, you will find yourself in Banshee’s hidden workshop and in front of a locked case that contains Leviathan’s Breath.

After finding the hidden workshop, return to talk to Banshee. He will tell you to do some ‘safe cracking’. Safecracking means completing gambit matches or strikes. You can also opt for Gambit prime matches or Nightfall strikes to speed up your progress.

After completing the previous step, you need a total of 75 precision bow kills on either vex or cabals.

The easiest way to complete this step is to head to leviathan from the Nessus destination and enter the Castellum area at the start and kill cabals here as they spawn infinitely. Alternate spawn place for Cabal is Lost Sector on Nessus at Artifact’s Edge.

If you want to proceed by killing vex, you can find vex spawns at the Hellmouth, Archer’s line and Anchor of light. But this might not be the most effective to complete the task due to the larger size of the team participating in the event.

Another fast approach is to find a short and easily accessible Lost Sector that has vex or Cabal spawns and run through the sector until you have finished the target kills.

After getting the precision bow kills,  head to the European Dead Zone from the director’s menu and start the modified ‘Arms dealer strike’. It is a 900-level strike with modifiers harsh elements, blackout and iron active. These will make the mission much more difficult as the enemies will spawn more frequently and will be more difficult to damage.  If you’re above 900 Power Level and have good gear mix and some super abilities which increase your sustainability,  then this should not be too much of a problem.

After completing the strike, all you need to do is return to the tower, speak to Banshee-44 one last time, and then return to the hidden workshop. And then, the bow will be yours.
