Destiny 2: How to Get the Gjallarhorn - Exotic Quest Guide

Wreck up Raids and Strikes with this classic Exotic Missile Launcher from the original Destiny, but don't expect it to be what it was.

The Gjallarhorn has a special place in the hearts of longtime Destiny players. In the first year of the original Destiny’s launch, the Gjallarhorn Exotic was a coveted missile launcher that served a devastating amount of damage.

As a year 1 Destiny player myself, I remember hearing how it was almost required for the final boss fight in the Vault of Glass Raid a while after it was first released. 

Now, for Bungie’s 30th Anniversary, the prodigal launcher of rockets has returned to Destiny 2. Longtime players can now use a watered-down version of the weapon, and newer players can see some of what the fuss is about. 

For as long as its available, the Gjallarhorn is a must-have among Exotic weapons. Here’s how to get yours: 

How to Get the Gjallarhorn in Destiny 2:

  • First, open the Director and press/click on Eternity, then select Xur’s Treasure Hoard.
  • At the Treasure Hoard, talk to Xur. Select the Quest “And Out Fly the Wolves.”   
  • Go to the Cosmodrome and meet Shaw Han. 
  • Check out the Loot Cave and complete the “Grasp of Avarice” dungeon. 
  • Return to Shaw Han with the Wolfpack Round. 
  • Defeat strong Fallen enemies around the Cosmodrome and collect 7  more Wolfpack Rounds.
  • Return to Shaw Han with the rest of the Wolfpack Rounds. 
  • Go to the Tower and talk to Banshee-44 about the Gjallarhorn. 
  • Return to the Cosmodrome and go to the Divide. 
  • Complete Lost Sector “Exodus Garden 2A”. 
  • Return to Shaw Han. Use the tool chest in his hideout to reassemble the Gjallarhorn. 
  • Return to Shaw Han and at last, receive the Gjallarhorn Exotic missile launcher.
