Destiny: The Taken King - how to get Boolean Gemini

The easiest Exotic Primary out there is Boolean Gemini, a Scout Rifle with your name on it.


How to get Boolean Gemini

Boolean Gemini is an Exotic Scout Rifle with a base Attack stat of 290. It should please fans of Vision of Confluence and MIDA Multi-tool, neither of which has been upgraded for Destiny: Year Two.

Although it deals kinetic damage it makes up for the lack of elemental clout with an impressive impact stat, great maximum range and a lightning-quick reload. Depending on your scope choice its precision and stability make headshots an absolute breeze. For those looking for a speed boost, it offers a buff to agility after critical kills, and holds very stead under fire for cool and collected sniping.

Best of all, this Exotic is actually pretty easy to obtain. All you need to do is follow a few questlines and ensure your Queen's Wrath rank is three or higher. Once you meet these conditions, visit Petra Venj on the Reef and she'll hand it over at no cost. It's as easy as that.

Follow our guide and you'll quickly be rocking one of the most delightfully punchy guns in Destiny: The Taken King.

Achieve rank three with the Queen's Wrath faction

If you are a new player, you may not have a high enough Queen's Wrath rank to immediately receive the Boolean Gemini from Petra upon completion of the three quests above. You can raise your rank by completing the Bounties Petra offers very occasionally, but the easiest and quickest way is to play the House of Wolves story missions. Visit your abaondoned quests terminal in the Vanguard centre on the Tower to kick things off.

That's it; enjoy your new weapon, Guardian. For more Exotics, quest walkthroughs and much more, see our complete Destiny: The Taken King guide.
