Destiny 2 Wicked Implement Exotic Scout Rifle Guide: How To Get

Get This Exotic Scout Rifle After The Weekly Reset!


With the weekly reset in Destiny 2 Season of the Deep, we get some new content, including the Wicked Implement Exotic Scout Rifle. This is a new Stasis weapon and the last exotic weapon Season of the Deep offers. In this Destiny 2 guide, we cover how you can get the Wicked Implement Exotic Scout Rifle.

How To Get The Wicked Implement Exotic Scout Rifle

To get the Wicked Implement Exotic Scout Rifle in Destiny 2 you first need to fish for three exotic fish in different locations. These include:

  • Miasma, Savathun’s Throne World
  • The Cistern, Arcadian Valley, Nessus
  • Outskirts, European Dead Zone (EDZ)

During this week, the chance of catching exotic fish has been doubled, so it is a great time to farm for them if you have not got them already. Head over to each of the above-mentioned locations and fish till you get an exotic fish. Once you have one from all three locations then you can head over to the next part. Note that this is going to rely on RNG and some players have reported using 150 bait to get a single exotic fish.

Once you have all three, you need to head over to the helm and deposit the fish. This will reward you with the Broken Blade of Ambition. You now need to start the Deep Dive activity and dunk each of the Broken Blades into a hive statue. Note that only one member of your fireteam needs to do this. Once you have done this, a new door is going to open and if you head inside, you will find additional hive statues depending on the number of players in your team. Each player needs to interact with one of the statues to progress the quest.

Taken Knight Khull Boss Encounter

Progress forward and you will encounter the Taken Knight, Khull, and his Servile Minotaurs. The basic mechanic for this encounter is that you need to defeat the Servile Minotaurs to damage the boss. Once you have done enough damage, the boss will move to another room and you will need to chase after him.

In the next room, there is a timer, so you need to be quick. You will need to shoot two nodes in order to progress. One is in the center of the room and the other is underneath the staircase. Once you shoot both of them the shield will disappear and you can head into the next room where you will find more Taken enemies. You will need to take out the Minotaurs in this room as well. Some of them will be behind shields, but you can disable the shield by shooting at the nodes in the room. Once you have defeated the Minotaurs, you can damage the boss. You can use your super and power weapons to deal the most damage.

Omen, Blade of the Black Terrace Boss Fight

Once you have defeated Khull, you can head into the next room, where you will face Omen, Blade of the Black Terrace. The room that you are in is like a maze and inside, you will need to find and kill Minotaurs before you can damage the boss. They are marked so they are not too hard to find. Once you defeat them all you will gain the buff Deathly Sharp x3. Once this is active, you will have a minute to deal damage to the boss. We recommend using a Well of Radiance to do more damage and increase survivability. You can also use weapons such as Leviathan’s Breath. We can also recommend using Divinity with Retrofit Escapade to deal a ton of damage to the boss inside a well.

If you are unable to defeat it in the time limit you will get the “your violence wanes, your foes smell it” prompt. This simply means that you need to hunt down the Minotaurs again, get the boss and deal damage to the boss.

Once you have defeated Omen, you can progress forward and interact with the statue at the end to get the Wicked Implement exotic scout rifle.

Is Wicked Implement Any Good?

The following are the perks of the Wicked Implement Exotic Scout Rifle:

  • Exotic Intrinsic Perk – Creeping Attrition: Rapidly landing precision hits causes targets to become slowed.
  • Exotic Traits Tithing Harvest: Precision final blows while Creeping Attrition is active create a Stasis shard that returns to you. Collecting Stasis shards refills the magazine.
  • Exotic Catalyst: Collecting Stasis shards gradually overflows the magazine.

This is a cool-looking weapon that is fun to use. Note that you do not need to get precision hits on the same enemy to trigger the slowing effect. These carry over to enemies as long as you get precision hits. 4 shots apply slow and an additional 2 precision hits will freeze enemies. Shooting at frozen enemies does additional shatter damage.

Wicket Implement works very well in PvP since it applies slow. It is not all that great in PvE but it is a cool weapon to try out. The exotic catalyst is nice to have but it si not a game-changer.

This is how you can get the Wicked Implement Exotic Scout Rifle in Destiny 2 Season of the Deep. To learn more, check out our guide on how you can cheese the final boss of Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon. Check out our Destiny 2 guides hub for more content.
