Want to get your hands on the Destiny 2 Heart Shadow exotic? This fancy-looking sword is one of the most exciting new exotics in the Season of the Haunted and is perfect for void subclass characters who want to make the most of their invisibility. Its strongest ability is that it turns you invisible when you launch a heavy attack, and fires off some Void orbs at enemies.
Usually invisiblity is limited to finishers, class abilities or smoke bombs, so adding it to a weapon is very strong. But Heart Shadow isn’t easy to get. First off, you’ll have to trek through the new Duality dungeon (opens in new tab), and even after finishing the final encounter, the chances it’ll actually drop are very slim.
If you’ve recently started Season of the Haunted, you might be wondering what Opulent Keys (opens in new tab) and chests are or where to find the Calus bobbleheads (opens in new tab) scattered across the Leviathan. Either way, this is how you get your hands Heart Shadow in Destiny 2.
How to get Destiny 2 Heart Shadow
The Heart Shadow sword is the rarest reward from the Duality dungeon. You can only get it from the final encounter against Caiatl and its drop rate is pretty darn low. If you just want to farm for the sword, it might be a good idea to use the Destiny 2 app to find people looking for help on the final encounter. This means that you won’t have to work through the entire dungeon just for a chance to get Heart Shadow. You can also increase the sword’s drop rate with a new feature that Bungie has introduced this season.
Destiny 2 Heart Shadow: How to buff its drop rate
In order to buff the Heart Shadow drop rate you need to complete a series of triumphs in the dungeon itself. If you head into your triumphs menu and select “legends” then “duality”, you can view all of the triumphs. Here are the five that boost Heart Shadow drop rate:
- Flawless Thoughtstealer: Complete all encounters in Duality without dying
- Solo Thoughtstealer: Complete all encounters in Duality solo
- Perfected Thoughtstealer: Complete all encounters in Duality solo without dying
- Master Thoughtstealer: Complete Duality on Master difficulty
- Mind Heist: Steal Calus’ Repressed Memories
The easiest one to complete is Mind Heist, since the Repressed Memories are just collectibles scattered through the dungeon. Completing it on Master will require a pretty high power level, and solo is certainly possible, but it would take a long time to collect all the standards required for boss damage phases. Still, even one of these will reduce the amount of times you need to farm that last boss.
