SGA: Secret Mission is Playable from Today's Heroic Story Mission (Minor Spoliers)

Post by S7 Interseptor on Wed Sep 23, 2015 1:37 pm

There is a secret mission available in the middle of today's Heroic Story mission (9/23/15).  Doing said mission rewards you with Black Spindle, an exotic sniper that drops at 310 light.  There are a few tricks to getting the mission to start and the reward.  Below will be some minor spoilers and requirements for those interested.

1) This is a speedrun event.  For part 1, basically you have to make it to a specific location in the mission as fast as possible.  Too slow and the mission will not be available.  The special mission takes place on Taniks Ketch from the Moon Strike.  You need to speedrun there and then ride up the grav-lift to the Ketch.  

- The basic idea that that you don't kill anything you don't have to.  Speed run to the Ogre and kill him ASAP.  Grab the Shard as the mission tells you to do.  

- Next speed run to the relic room, grab the relic and place it in door #1

- Then run to Room #2 where 2 relics are required.  Open that door and proceed as quickly as you can to Room #3

- In Room #3 you are supposed to open a door with 3 relics, IGNORE this step. Instead, head off to the side entrance that leads to Tankis Ketch.  If you have done that Strike before you should know the area.  Run straight to the grav-lift and jump up...

2) From there Part 2 starts.  You have 10 mins to kill all adds and a boss.  These will all be Taken enemies of course.  Note: You CAN die but you CAN NOT wipe.  Successful completion will net you with a 310 Sniper that is basically the equivalent to a Year 2 Exotic Black Hammer.

And here is the gravy.  Once obtained, you can reprint it from the tower kiosk for 1 Exotic Shard and 2500 glimmer, no marks required!  Printed copies drop at 300 Light and can be used to infuse other special weapons.  Now all your special weapons can be 300 light.  You're welcome!

Note:  I have only ready about the details of the Mission.  I have not watched any videos or completed it myself.  I will be trying tonight.  By all accounts, it is very difficult.  Fireteam is recommended.  Also, you can access this secret mission from relaunching the the mission on Heroic.  It does not need to be completed today.  Good luck guardians! Must be completed when this mission is selected for Daily Heroic.

Update: The only required kill is the Ogre until you reach the Fallen Ketch so be sure to only kill what you have to and run past as many enemies as you can for the first part.

Once on the Katch, you have to kill everything. Good luck and have fun!

Update #2: This mission can only be launched as part of the Daily Heroic. If you miss it today you will have to wait till the next time it rotates in.

Thanks for the post!

I haven't been able to play too much and am just getting to LL240 - looks like this would be a long shot to try completing for me.

Yeah...that run is no joke. Tried it with 3 of us and we averaged 290 and still got smoked in the last room. Got the boss down to about 20% but the adds were just too much.

Looks like it's getting nerfed down to 290 soon anyways so I'm actually glad I didn't spend a lot of time working on getting it.

From DeeJ...

Hello, Guardians.

Right this every minute, many of you are acquiring Black Spindle. Surprise!

Wouldn't you know it, there is a bug that is enabling some of these weapons to drop at 310 - that's 20 points higher than intended. In the near future, we'll be releasing an update that will adjust the Black Spindle to match the attack rating for other Year Two Exotics.

It has also come to our attention that you are using this new acquisition to Infuse your other weapons. Good on you. Have fun with that. None of those weapons will be affected by this change - only the Spindle.

So, that's garbage. Kenny, Zac and I tried a half a dozen times and couldn't get it done too. Unfortunately, I was only 283 so that didn't help much. We did manage to get the boss down once but only had like 30 seconds or something to clear the overflowing room. I wonder if the nerf will also include a patch to not allow people to infuse with reprints like they did with the Queen's gear, since they're aware of what people are doing.

They'll probably just make it 280 at the buy in price like the rest of the Year 2 stuff. Honestly though this doesn't need to be nerfed as you can only upgrade the one slot with it. (Unless that was bugged too)

I only gave it 2 tries last night before one of our members had to leave. I was 240 even, with a 289 and a 290.

Everything to the final room was pretty easy. Got into the boss with about 6 minutes left both times.
Tried 2 kinda different strats.

Initially had 2 on the right door killing the boss, 1 person cleaning up ads/spheres. Got the boss to about 5% ish and ads were fairly low but timed out

Second time we all just jumped on the boss, titan ult/hunter tethered him and got him super low. Finished him shortly after but had some bad luck with spawns and timed out with maybe 5 ads left.

Side note: If I had a sword, we would have immediately killed the boss when we jumped on him the 2nd time. Then it would have been like 5:30 for cleaning up ads which would have been easy.

Yeah, sadly we came away empty handed. Too bad that we can no longer get the 310 variant. Still pretty cool that the mission even exists and makes me wonder how many more hidden missions there are. TTK has really raised the bar in this respect. There is now a TON of content and even more that we don't know. All sorts of places around the Dreadnaught that require special codes or key.

Heck, yesterday Kenny and I fought another secret boss by activating two consoles at the same time. Got a cool emblem for our trouble.

Also, a mini Crota appears at the Court of Oryx during the first mission to the Dreadnaught. Not sure anyone has beaten him but I'm sure it's another secret to uncover. He only appears for like 30 sec with 2 Witches and then despawns.

So much good stuff to discover!

It's back!!! Today's Heroic Story is once again the one containing the secret mission to get the 310 Sniper. It has not been patched yet so get out there and get hunting Guardians!

Still drops at 310, still reprints at 300 from the kiosk. It's a great way to help boost some light for those looking.

I might be up for this tonight if two bros are good. I'm at 292 so I should be a little better equipped than last run when I was like low 280s.

I'm guessing the Black Spindle nerf is part of the patch going out today.  We'll see.

At 10AM PDT on Wednesday September 30th, Destiny players may be asked to login again upon returning to orbit to download a patch.

Oh no!  I hope not, but probably... with my luck.

EDIT: Or not...

2.0.0.5 - The one with fewer hammers and more Strike rewards.

This basic piece of housekeeping fixes issues that shipped with The Taken King or were introduced by Update 2.0.0.4.
Classes

   Fixed an issue where Titan Sunbreakers could rapidly spam the Hammer of Sol attack

World

   Fixed an issue where players were occasionally not getting loot when opening chests

Strikes

   Fixed an issue where players were not earning their rightfully-owed equipment from Valus Ta'aurc

Notes from the Ghost: I can confirm that my Guardians Black Spindle has NOT been nerf'd.

Nice! I'll probably try to throw a group together later on tonight when I'm on. Should be much easier with a group of 290s than the last try where I was around 240 xD

Kenny and Zak picked it up on PS4. I tried later with them for one attempt @ 3-man and Zak and I ran 2-man for like 4-5 runs and just couldn't get it. I was at like 291-292, but unfortunately I'm not the best player and I don't have a ton of patience to keep banging my head against the wall so it just didn't happen.

I gotta say, that mission is no joke. Kenny and I managed it 2-man but we had a flawless run. The problem is not so much the difficulty but that everything has to be perfect or you run out of time. Sorry I couldn't recreate the magic for your run Puppet.

After completion I quickly ran to Kinko's and made some copies of Black Spindle (copies print at 300) then infused all my favorite Specials up to 300 so I have a nice arsenal at my disposal.
