A new community-focused quest is available to round off the Destiny 2: Season of the Worthy and Rasputin will be watching Guardians very closely.
Update: After a few complaints that the first section of The Lie was too difficult, Bungie has reduced the power level of Champions and progression has been tuned. There’s also a 5x multiplier for progression, with a 10x multiplier coming this weekend.
We have made adjustments to “The Lie” Quest and Seraph Tower Difficulty.

Ana Bray has a new quest for you called The Lie, and much like the Corridors of Time quest from Season of Dawn, it’ll require a team effort from all players. At the end of the quest, you’re likely to receive Felwinter’s Lie, a shotgun from the legendary Iron Lord from the Destiny Rise of Iron DLC.
Recent datamines suggest that we’ll be able to rescue a non-corrupted version of Felwinter, since time still hasn’t settled itself in Destiny 2, and he’ll be featured in the next season. This quest is likely to take a few weeks to complete, so let’s take a look at how to get started.
These steps are based off a datamined report from Ginsor and could change in the future, so check back soon for more info.
Destiny 2: How to complete The Lie quest
To get started, visit Ana Bray on Mars. She’ll give you The Lie’s first step, Warmind Evaluation. You’ll need to complete Seraph Tower public events on the EDZ, Moon and Io for this section, and you’ll see three bars that the Destiny 2 community will need to fill to 100%. The community needs to complete around three million events for each location, so it’s going to take some hard grinding to get there.
Once that’s done, pay Ana another visit. She’ll then direct you to Vostok, one of the Crucible maps. You’re looking for some energy signatures, so follow the steps to gather some energy. Gather enough energy and the quest will update to ask you to get 1000 final blows with a shotgun.
You can either kill enemies from different locations or head to the Crucible to kill Guardians, which will fill your progress bar a little faster. You can check out how to get the Fourth Horseman Exotic Shotgun here.
After that, the mission will update to The Tyrant and it’s time to have a chat with Rasputin on the Moon, which is still haunted. You’ll find out that Felwinter is Rasputin’s “son” who was sent to infiltrate humanity as an Exo before becoming Corrupted. You’ll get to see a neat hologram display telling this story before you can reach in and grab Felwinter’s Lie.
Once you start using Felwinter’s Lie, there’s a chance some Lore books will drop after kills, filling in some of the blanks about his time with the Iron Lords.
Felwinter’s Lie has the Intrinsic Perk Shot Package, where it has an aggressive shotgun frame in a uniform pellet spread. It also rolls with Slideshot and Opening Shot, where sliding partially reloads the magazine and you’ll have better accuracy and range with the first shot. It’s unclear whether it will have a Catalyst yet, but I’d bet on it.
