With the release of Destiny 2’s Season of the Hunt, Bungie has introduced another Pursuit weapon for players to chase. Here’s how this weapon can be unlocked in the Strike, Crucible, and Gambit playlists.

In the second year of Destiny 2, developer Bungie began experimenting with the idea of powerful weapons that could be unlocked by completing specific milestones in the game’s three core playlists: Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit.

While these weapons were first introduced into the Crucible playlist with guns like Redrix’s Claymore, Bungie realized they could expand on their idea and add Vanguard and Gambit weapons for players to obtain as well.

With the release of Destiny 2’s first season in Beyond Light, Season of the Hunt, Bungie has once again provided players with a new weapon to chase: the Adored sniper rifle. And with this Pursuit weapon, there is a brand-new twist on how to obtain it.

What is Adored? Season of the Hunt’s Pursuit sniper rifle

Prior to the release of Destiny 2’s Season of the Hunt, Bungie spoke about their plans for the game’s next pursuit weapon: the Adored Sniper Rifle. Now that the game’s new season is in full swing, players have started to obtain the weapon and try it out for themselves.

Adored in an Adaptive-frame sniper rifle, and while it does not have the raw damage output of other snipers like the Aggressive-frame Revoker, the gun still has solid stats and some good perk combinations available.

The first two static perks on the weapon are Hammer-Forged Rifling and Accurized Rounds, which boost the gun’s range value. The first set of interchangeable perks are Triple-Tap and Killing Wind, followed by a choice between Vorpal Weapon and Snapshot Sights.

Adored offers some interesting perk combinations depending on playstyle and whether the sniper will be used in PvP or PvE.

How to obtain Adored: Vanguard, Crucible and Gambit quest steps

Season of the Hunt kicked off with the release of Beyond Light on November 10. With the new content drop, the Adored sniper rifle has become available for players to obtain.

While there is still only a single Pursuit weapon this season, Bungie has changed the process for obtaining the new sniper rifle: players can choose to complete a single quest in one of the three core playlists – Strikes, Crucible, and Gambit – and will be rewarded with the new sniper rifle.

Guardians should follow the steps outlined below, in their preferred playlist, to obtain Adored:

  • Vanguard (Strike playlist):
    • Speak to Banshee-44 in the Tower and obtain the Strikes in your Sights quest
    • Defeat bosses, combatants, and collect points by defeating combatants while using Sniper Rifles in strikes (note: precision final blows with Sniper Rifles grant additional progress)
      • 40 bosses
      • 1000 combatants
      • 300 points
    • Get precision final blows with a Sniper Rifle or Sniper Rifle defeat streaks without dying in strikes (note: you only need to complete one of these two objectives)
      • 35 defeats in streaks
      • 20 Sniper Rifle headshots
    • Speak with Banshee-44 in the Tower to receive your Adored
  • Crucible
    • Speak to Banshee-44 in the Tower and obtain the Crucible in your Sights quest
    • Defeat Guardians as a team, earn Valor ranks, and collect points by defeating Guardians while using Sniper Rifles in Crucible (note: precision final blows with Sniper Rifles grant additional progress)
      • 500 Guardians
      • 3 Valor ranks
      • 200 points
    • Get long-range or precision final blows with Sniper Rifles in Crucible (note: you only need to complete one of these two objectives)
      • 5 long-range Sniper Rifle final blows
      • 5 Sniper Rifle headshots

      • 300 precision headshots
      • 3 Infamy ranks
      • 250 points
    • Defeat Guardians or Blockers as a team with a Sniper Rifle in Gambit (note: you only need to complete one of these two objectives)
      • 5 Guardians
      • 20 blockers
    • Speak with Banshee-44 in the Tower to receive your Adored

Is Adored worth the grind?

While the three quest options for obtaining Adored are quite simple compared to some previous Pinnacle weapon quests, the question still stands: is the weapon worth the grind? Members of the Destiny 2 community have started to issue their verdicts on the new gun.

Destiny YouTuber CammyCakes released a video speaking about Adored, its perks, and its overall usefulness. He confirms “I found this snipe very easy to use, so it’s definitely gonna be something in my sniper rifle rotation.” He goes on to say that “as soon as there is an Aggressive-frame sniper that’s an option . . . I’m just switching to the aggressive frame.”

While it may not be the most powerful sniper rifle in the game, Adored does appear to be a solid choice for both PvP and PvE, especially with the recent sunsetting of many other weapons. If you are looking for a new sniper rifle to use in Beyond Light and Season of the Hunt content, completing the short grind to obtain this weapon is probably a good idea.

Destiny 2 Beyond Light and the Season of the Hunt are playable now on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
