Destiny 2 Exotic Bastion How To - Memento Quest Guide
The secret quest in the Corridors of Time has finally been solved, leading to a new Exotic weapon.
One of the key Exotics in Destiny 2's Season of Dawn is the Kinetic fusion rifle Bastion, which the Destiny community unlocked after banding together to solve the massive maze in the Corridors of Time. The puzzle found within the Corridors was enormous and required tons of cooperation from players to decipher, while furthering Destiny 2's story in some really interesting ways. Though players were initially iffy about Bastion, the rifle seems pretty effective in both PvE and PvP, thanks to its ability to circumvent enemy shields.
Saint-14 has the Bastion Exotic quest for you to grab, which sends you to the Tangled Shore to complete a series of steps. However, there is a prerequisite before he'll offer the quest; Bungie stated on Twitter that you'll need to first complete Saint-14's storyline, which involves the Recovering the Past and An Impossible Task quests. Below you'll find everything you need to know to get Bastion right now.
Unfortunately, the Corridors of Time disappeared with the January 28 weekly reset. Check out our full Corridors of Time guide for everything you might have missed about it, including some interesting story tidbits it includes. If you're disappointed to have missed out, Twitch Prime is offering Destiny 2 freebies, including Exotics and other bonuses, so be sure to claim those if you're an Amazon Prime member.
Start the quest by talking with Saint-14.

A False Refraction
Next, head to the Tangled Shore. You'll need to start by killing five Fallen Servitors and Captains to gain Fallen Intel. You should be able to find all five pretty quickly in the Thieves' Landing area. After that, head to Spider for the next step, called "Memento."
Speak to Spider and he'll send you after a Fallen Captain called Aksiniks. You'll find him in the Thieves' Landing Lost Sector called The Empty Tank, which is right next to the Spider's area. Head inside and clear the Lost Sector like usual; you'll find Aksiniks in the arena near where you'd usually fight the Lost Sector boss.
With Aksiniks down, return to the Spider for the next step in the quest.
A Strong Arm
Now you're on to the grinding portion of the quest. You'll need to clear 10 of Spider's bounties, while also killing 30 Challenging enemies and finishing eight Public Events on the Tangled Shore. Those should go pretty quickly. Both daily Spider bounties and his Wanted bounties work for this step, including those Wanted bounties that take you to other planets.
Now that you've raised some havoc, Spider will have gained the information you need about your next step. You're looking for a gravesite hidden in the Trapper's Cave Lost Sector, which is located in the Tangled Shore's Four-Horn Gulch area. Head into the Lost Sector and continue until you hit the room with the waterfall, which is filled with Cabal Legionaries and Psions. Clear the room and drop down to the bottom of the waterfall, then turn left and face the wall.
You should see a gassy blue Ether trail leading to the gravesite. Interact with it to get the next step in the quest, but be careful--you've just triggered a Scorn ambush.
With the Altered Chief item in hand, you're ready to track down the Scorn Chieftain you've been hunting this whole time, and the weapon he took from Saint-14. Check the Tangled Shore map in the Director and you should see a new version of the Strike called The Hallowed Lair, marked "The Hallowed Lair, Memento." That's your next destination.
You'll find the Memento version of The Hallowed Lair is pretty much identical to the regular version of the Strike, with one key difference. In the final battle with the Fanatic, look for an Elite Scorn Chieftain enemy named Defiled Reysk, The Waning Light. Kill him and complete the Strike to get the last step in the quest. Return to Saint-14 and claim your Bastion.
