Destiny 2: How To Get The Revision Zero Exotic Pulse Rifle
In addition to the Hierarchy of Needs Exotic bow and The Manticore Exotic SMG, Destiny 2’s Season of the Seraph brings a new exotic pulse rifle called the Revision Zero. Revision Zero’s inherent ability makes it strong against Barrier Champions with its shield-piercing ammo. It also collects target data from precision kills which allows you to temporarily switch to a high damage scope. Completing The Hidden Shape quest steps will give you Revision Zero and its weapon pattern to shape it.
First, continue the Season of the Seraph’s Week three questline – called More Than A Weapon – and at step 22 of the quest, talk to Elsie Bray at the Holoprojector. Accept The Hidden Shape Exotic quest and complete the Operation: Seraph’s Shield mission–which you can access from HELM and is set to power level 1580 for normal mode. This mission does not have matchmaking, so you can complete it alone.
Operation: Seraph’s Shield Mission Guide
Once at the entrance to the facility, avoid the tripmines and proceed further into the facility. Defeat the Scanner Splicer to get the Scanner Augment, a mechanic that should be familiar from the Deep Stone Crypt raid.
The Scanner extension reveals which console to hack using the yellow highlighted grid pattern. Hack the three consoles in this room to activate the escape pods. Once at the engineering sector, go to the Augmentation Terminal to remove the scanner booster to unlock the door. Defeat another Scanner Splicer and hack the console nearby, the one through the vent and the last console by the door. When you’re done, use the Augmentation Terminal again.
Remember that you will encounter the Scanner, Operator and Suppressor extensions. The extensions are for specific tasks:
- The scanner: allows you to hack yellow consoles.
- Operator: shows red control panels to shoot at.
- The Suppressor: allows you to damage a target enemy while standing under blue spherical drones.
- Augmentation Terminals allow you to switch between augmentations or unlock doors.
Access the decontamination chamber
In the big yellow room you can grab the scanner from the Splicer Vandal. The first console is by a pillar near the entrance. For the next one, go through the vent that’s on the opposite side of the pillar – which leads you to a room full of lasers protecting the other console. Finally, use the terminal to open another room. Run up the stairs and hack the diamond-shaped panel on the far right to unlock a vertical room full of turrets.
Access the Security Protocol Puzzle Room
Defeat the Splicer Vandal once more to grab the scanner. With the scanner, you can look into the square puzzle room from the top window to see the three glowing consoles.
Be sure to hack the consoles from left to right, which are: Rear panel on the left side wall, leftmost panel on the back wall, and center panel on the right wall.
The bottom window reveals the tile pattern you must step on, and stepping on the wrong tile in the 7 x 7 grid will burn you up. If you have teammates, someone can help you navigate the puzzle room, but if you’re running solo, this guide provides helpful screenshots.
Access the Officer’s Lounge
This time, grab the Operator’s augment, which shows red-hot control panels placed on walls that unlock doors. Shoot the control panel in the red lit part of the room and continue to the next area while defeating enemies. Then follow the floor vent to shoot the second operator panel. Return to the previous room and go through another floor vent to access an orange room with Hive enemies to shoot the final control panel for this area. The control panel is in a separate room but can be shot at through the window opening.
Haroktha Boss Fight
Go to the cyan room to get the Warsat Control Nexus Key Card from the fallen Security Officer’s Captain and enter the battle with Haroktha, Scourge of the Helium Potions. In this deliberately incomplete fight, damage the Hive boss Haroktha until it disappears. Also defeat the Hive enemies, three yellow brigs and remaining fallen enemies.
According to the plan, the Guardian must be captured. When you come to a dead end, “Surrender” weapons and gain ship access to the outside of the station. When you get to space, carefully jump down onto the catwalks and make your way to Operator Vandal. Shoot the three glowing control panels in the area to open up more platforms. When you are at the next terminal in the logistics sector, open the door and defeat Haroktha.
Access the Warsat Command Nexus
In this small room you can use the operator magnifier for the control panel in the middle. Position the operator at the open Augmentation Terminal, then grab the scanner from the splicing machine. Hack the console in that room. Then place the scanner in the terminal and grab the operator again to shoot the second control panel in the middle. Return the operator to the terminal and find another scanner to hack the other console. If you do this alone, you can switch between scanner and operator through the terminal and get the boost from the vandals.
With the yellow room unlocked, shoot the control panel hanging from the ceiling with the operator. Get the scanner and hack the console nearby, which opens the transmat.
Practice, The Defiled Boss Fight
For the boss fight you have to use the suppressor mechanic. First, get the Suppressor boost from Vandal. To use the Suppressor boost, stand under the spherical drones and damage the glowing blue immune enemy. Then shoot the visible red shield drones to remove enemy shields.
The practice’s health bar is divided into three parts. Doing a third damage to the boss’s health bar triggers the suppressor mechanic where you have to stand under the three spherical drones and target Praksis. Then shoot the visible red shield drones on the right, left and center of the room to remove the Praksis shield for the damage phase – it’s best to use something that does a lot of damage quickly, like a grenade or rocket launcher since the room will be flooded with smaller enemies.
After defeating Praksis, upload the virus to complete the mission.
The Hidden Shape Quest – Shaping Revision Zero
After completing Operation: Seraph’s Shield, visit the Exo Frame at HELM to get the Revision Zero Exotic Pulse Rifle. Use the weapon, defeat enemies to get the depth vision resonance for the weapon pattern.
Once you’ve collected the Revision Zero weapon pattern, mold it at the Martian Relic – something that requires 7 Resonant Alloy, 15,000 Mica and 750 Resonant Elements. Finally, communicate with the Relic Conduit to complete the mission. To forge Revision Zero Exotic Catalysts, you must do the Should You Choose to Accept It quests in later parts of the More Than A Weapon questline, and complete the Operation: Seraph’s Shield quest in Legend mode, which limits your power to 1580 and places additional modifiers.
