Are you looking for a guide to the Destiny 2 The Final Strand quest? This will likely be the last Exotic quest as a part of the Lightfall expansion you need to complete as you need to fully master your Strand subclass. But, what do you need to do to finish it?

In this guide we will go over all of the steps, most of which are easy, so you can nab yourself the Destiny 2 Final Warning sidearm, which is incredibly strong. You will need to have unlocked all the Destiny 2 Strand Fragments and collect a number of Destiny 2 Strand Meditations first, however.

Destiny 2 The Final Strand quest

The Destiny 2 The Final Strand quests steps are:

  • Visit Nimbus in Striders’ Gate in Neomuna
  • Search for Strand-inoculated gadgets in Veil Containment in Neomuna
  • Defeat the Shadow Legion looters and read their orders to learn where they took the spoils
  • Retrieve the Veil spectrometer from the Typhon Imperator
  • Visit the Pouka Pond in the Hall of Heroes in Neomuna
  • Complete Osiris’s training program in Radiosonde in at least 5 minutes 30 seconds to retune the Veil spectrometer
  • Visit the Pouka Pond in the Hall of Heroes to finish your Strand weapon

Overall, this quest is not too long or too tricky. The first steps will just have you taking down some enemies outside the Veil, which can be accessed all the way on the left of the Destiny 2 Neomuna map, while the Veil Spectrometer will need you to venture into the Typhon Imperator. But, it isn’t too deep into the ship and can be found quite easily, although the Tormentor is a tough fight as it is a boss.

Finally, Osiris’ training program is another version of the one we already have in the game right now where you can test out your Strand abilities. These aren’t too hard and beating it in five and a half minutes shouldn’t be too tricky by the time you have mastered Strand and utilised the best Destiny 2 Strand Meditation farm.

Destiny 2 The Final Strand quest step 2 – Veil Containment

The second step of the Destiny 2 The Final Strand quest is to search for Strand-inoculated gadgets in Veil Containment in Neomuna. This objective has stumped many players, likely due to the confusing wording.

To find Veil Containment in Neomuna, begin in Zephyr Concourse and take the main doors leading to the west at the top of the ramps. Make your way through the corridors and through Esi Terminal, where you will then find yourself in the Irkalla Complex skyscrapers. Head through the Darkness portal at the back of this area to be teleported to the beach outside Veil Containment.

To get Strand-inoculated gadgets in Veil Containment, simply kill the Cabal troops marked with the Exotic quest icon in the area.

The rest of The Final Strand quest steps are quite straightforward so you shouldn’t encounter too many issues. Remember to track the quest from the quest menu so that you have quest markers while exploring Neomuna. This will be a big help during The Final Strand quest.
