Destiny 2 Seraph Weapons: Stats and How to Get Them

Here’s how to get Seraph Weapons, aka the Ikelos weapons, a family of legendary guns in Destiny 2. These new weapons were made available via the Destiny 2 Warmind DLC. Overall there are four Seraph weapons in Destiny 2: the hand cannon (received after completing the main story), the submachine gun, sniper rifle, and shotgun. The latter three weapons are earned, in short, through Escalation Protocol. Below are the detailed steps.

Destiny 2 Seraph Weapons: Earn Seven Rasputin Key Fragments

Fragments can be earned by playing PvE modes: Heroic Strikes or Heroic Adventures. Both work although the latter is your safest bet because Heroic Adventures results in two fragments each time you complete it. These modes are available daily and you’ll need to earn a total of seven key fragments.

Destiny 2 Seraph Weapons: Encrypted Cache Key

To receive the Encrypted Cache key visit Mars and turn in your seven key fragments to Ana Bray. On its own the Encrypted Cache Key is useless but you’ll need it to advance on this quest for the remaining Seraph weapons.

Destiny 2 Seraph Weapons: Escalation Protocol

Now that you have the Encrypted Cache Key your next step is to undergo Escalation Protocol, a public event on Mars. This seven wave horde mode is brutal and recommended to be done once players are at 370 Light Level. Upon completing all the waves you’ll face the final boss.

Destiny 2 Seraph Weapons: Beat the Boss

The boss is no easy feat either but it is switched up on a weekly basis so any failures you endure will at least have some variety to them. Beating the boss will reward you with a Decrypted Cache Key and a special loot box which is opened with said key.

At last, the loot box will include legendary and exotic items including one of the following three Seraph weapons: the Submachine Gun, Sniper Rifle, or Shotgun.
