Destiny 2: Season of the Worthy got a new quest on Tuesday called “The Lie.” And while the game isn’t clear on what the reward is, the datamined Felwinter’s Lie shotgun — a returning favorite from the original Destiny — is a pretty safe bet.

Here’s how to complete “The Lie,” gain Rasputin’s favor, and pick up the returning Felwinter’s Lie legendary shotgun.

Step 1: Warmind Evaluation

Update (May 17): The community completed this part of the quest on Sunday night. You can no move on to One of Many.

To start “The Lie,” load into the Braytech Futurescape on Mars and head toward Ana Bray to start the quest. She has a message for you from Rasputin.

To gauge how Guardians do things, Rasputin needs to observe you completing some Seraph Tower public events on the EDZ, Io, and the Moon. Rasputin is looking for 3,000,000 examples on each location — but thankfully you won’t be working toward that number alone. According to the data mine, Rasputin needs the community to complete 9,000,000 Seraph Tower events across the three locations — 3,000,000 each.

Step 2: One of Many

After the community completes some Seraph Tower events together, Ana will need to see you again. Head back to her for the next step in the quest.

Step 3: Vostok

After speaking to Ana, she’ll send you to investigate Vostok. Go to the EDZ map and launch the “A Warmind’s Secret” quest near the Winding Cove landing zone.

When you load in, you’ll find yourself in the Vostok Crucible map. Run forward and to the left and you’ll see the first icon. Follow it and scan the broken materials buried in the dirt, near the corner in the courtyard.

Listen to Ana talk a little and make your way left, around the mountain, past the sigil of the Iron Lords, and into the ski lift warehouse. By now you should see the objective marker. Jump up into the rafters and scan the object in the corner.

While Ana is talking, continue around the mountain toward the giant building. Hug the outside of the mountain and you’ll come across the third scannable. Scan it, listen to Ana, and head back to orbit.

Step 4: Shotgun Telemetry

Now you need to get 1,000 shotgun kills in Destiny 2’s open world or the Crucible.

This part of the quest will probably take you a bit. We recommend dropping into an area like the Leviathan’s Castellum to farm your kills. Equip a shotgun in every slot if you want this to go faster.

For kinetic shotguns, we like the Perfect Paradox or Imperial Decree for PvE and the Toil and Trouble for PvP. For energy shotguns, we recommend the Mindbender’s Ambition for PvP, and the Last Man Standing or the Python for PvE. For heavy shotguns, you can use the Legend of Acrius shotgun from the Leviathan raid or Tractor Cannon.

Step 5: Lunar Trip

After you’ve collected the energy signatures and gotten your shotgun kills, Rasputin has something to show you. Head to the Lunar Seraph Bunker on the moon and follow Rasputin’s quest marker.

Step 6: Warmind Heuristics

For this quest step, you need to “investigate one of Rasputin’s closest-held secrets.”

After talking to Rasputin, interact with the Seraph Bunker door. You’ll load into a mission called “The Tyrant.” Follow the objective markers and Rasputin will tell you a story, and reveal the true identity of Felwinter, one of the original Iron Lords.

After you’ve seen the holograms, Rasputin will open the back wall of the bunker and beckon you inside. Walk through the door and follow the path forward. There’s only one way you can go, so duck through the vents, and crawl through the ducts until you reach a giant chasm.

Walk forward and Rasputin will turn on the lights. Keep moving until you see a kind of sarcophagus lift up before you. When it opens, grab the Felwinter’s Lie shotgun. Now you need to reconnect with Ana to end the mission. Turn left and interact with the nearby computer to make the call.

Felwinter’s Lie shotgun

Felwinter’s Lie is a returning legendary from the original Destiny. In Destiny 2, it looks to have a fixed roll with Full Choke, Accurized Rounds, Slideshot, Opening Shot, and a Range Masterwork. It also has a unique intrinsic perk, Shot Package, which gives it the frame of an aggressive shotgun but a more uniform pellet spread.
